Wow, they couldn’t even leave the Special Olympics alone


Because there is nothing more important than themselves, the protestors in Madison disrupted the Special Olympics today.

Wis. Union Protesters Disrupt Special Olympics Ceremony

[Madison, Wisc…] On Wednesday in Madison, protesters picketed and disrupted the Governor’s appearance at a Special Olympics ceremony outside the State Capitol.

As the event kicked off, the University of Wisconsin marching band played and Bucky Badger danced and hammed it up with the Olympians.

Interspersed throughout the crowd were dozens of pro-union protesters.

The picketers were present throughout the event, including some holding signs with questionable language.

The horn honking was kept below normal levels, but some continued throughout the speeches by law enforcement and other dignitaries.

Then, as the Governor began to address the Special Olympians, more than a dozen protesters, dressed as Zombies, because in their eyes they are “dead” to Scott Walker, walked to the front of the crowd. They blocked the athletes’ view of the Governor in an attempt to divert attention away from the Special Olympians on onto themselves.

It’s all about them, don’t you know? To hell with everyone else.
