Walker: I Fought the Unions, I Can Fight ISIS

Walker: I Fought the Unions, I Can Fight ISIS February 27, 2015

It’s always amusing to see governors run for president and try to burnish their foreign policy credentials. Since they don’t deal with foreign affairs, they do things like taking a trip to Europe to show that they’re men of the world. Gov. Scott Walker took it a step further:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) compared a military battle with the Islamic State terrorist group (ISIS) to opposing pro-union protesters during his Thursday evening speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Right Wing Watch reported.

“If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world,” Walker said in response to a question about how he would handle groups like ISIS.

The governor’s remark alluded to a March 2011 protest that drew around 100,000 demonstrators to the state Capitol opposing an anti-union bill. Walker’s CPAC appearance came a day after the Republican-controlled state Senate passed a “right-to-work” bill despite heavy opposition from the public.

He said that. Out loud. With a straight face. And probably got wild applause from it. That tells you pretty much all you need to know about today’s conservatives.
