In the run-up to the Wisconsin recall election, we got the Democrats’ attempt to smear Governor Walker with a carefully timed, just before the voting, dishonest claim of having fathered a child out of wedlock as a college kid. We also got the Progressives’ preview of one of their core beliefs, that of a surveillance state, with a mailer they sent to all potential voters in the state:
We’re sending this mailing to you and your neighbors to publicise who does and does not vote.
… The chart shows the names of some of your neighbors, showing which have voted in the past.
After the June 5th election, public records will tell everyone who voted and who didn’t.
Ann Althouse has posted an image of the letter she received. As Dr Althouse says, “This…is truly despicable.”
Now, post-election, Walker is the target—literally—of Democrats’ death threats. Here are some of the…saner…threats. And lest a reader thinks these are just angered BS, the Milwaukee Police Department and the Wisconsin Department of Justice think they’re real enough to investigate.

As backdrop, we have this from last February by Congressman Michael Capuano (D, MA) about the Wisconsin recall election:
Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.
It’s been interesting to see the denunciation by the Democratic Party leadership and by the NLMSM of these Progressive examples of civil discourse.
Here they are from President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, David Axelrod, Jim Messina, Debbie Wasserman Schulz, and Valerie Jarrett:
Here they are from the NYT, LAT, WaPo, CNN, and MSNBC:
for all of them.
Pair this with the Democrats’ atrocious attacks on the very fabric of our democracy 15 months ago when they ran from the state of Wisconsin (and Indiana) in order to block the democratically elected government from being able to function at all, solely because those Democrats were unable to impose their views on the majority.
The Progressives’ view of democracy and of individual liberty is not something we can afford four more years of. Or ever again.
