Left Continues To Document How Communist They Are In Wisconsin

August 29, 2011

Wausau, Wisconsin liberals decided to officially ban Republicans from the city’s Labor Day parade.  Because, after all, they’re “tolerant,” and open to all ideas and everything:

Organizers of Wausau’s Labor Day parade say Republican lawmakers aren’t welcome in this year’s event.

The Marathon County Central Labor Council sponsors the September 5th parade. The council includes about 30 local unions from the Marathon County area.

Council president Randy Radtke says they choose not to invite elected officials who have “openly attacked worker’s rights” or did nothing to intervene.

“When Scott Walker leveled his assault on workers and workers rights, the local Republicans followed in lock step with him,” Radtke said.

A step he says doesn’t follow the values of Labor Day.

“They wanna walk one way and talk the other way,” Radtke said. “The reason Labor Day was brought about was to recognize the achievements that the labor unions have accomplished over the years.”

State Senator Pam Galloway says unions are only a fraction of the labor represented in the parade and only part of what the parade is all about.

“I’m a worker, you’re a worker, we’re not represented by unions,” Galloway said. “It’s not appropriate for the citizens of the city of Wausau to be deprived of contact with their elected representatives. When I go to these parades, I try to talk with people before the parade actually starts.”

Other Republican leaders, including Rep. Sean Duffy’s office say they hoped political differences could be set aside for the family friendly event.

The Republican Party of Lincoln County says the tradition of a shared event will now end over “petty and short sighted anger toward legally elected officials.”

Republicans are hoping to work with Wausau city officials to resolve the conflict before Labor Day.

Kind of reminds me of the Nazis.  They claimed to be for “change” and for all voices to be heard.  Until they seized power.  And then suddenly they ruthlessly suppressed every other potential competing voice.

Finally, the Mayor of Wausau released a statement:

Wausau Mayor Jim Tipple Releases Statement:

August 29, 2011- The City is a co-sponsor of the Labor Day parade event, because we provided the payment for the insurance premium for the event, and we agreed to erect a stage and provide city services at no cost to the Marathon County Central Labor Council.

The banning of a political party from participation at any event co-sponsored by the City is against public policy and not in the best interest of all the citizens of the City of Wausau. And therefore, we encourage the event organizer to invite all interested parties, or reimburse the city for other costs.

This is why the left and the Democrat Party that is in the pocket of the left is anti-American.

This is why 4th of July parades – which focuses on celebrating the American heritage – tend to make people Republicans rather than Democrats.

This is why even relatively brief exposure to the American flag creates Republicans.

Meanwhile, the Democrat Party is on the verge of officially becoming a socialist party (which it already is in everything but name anyway).
