Scott Walker, a Republican front-runner in the race for President in 2016, came out recently by comparing union personnel and peaceful protesters to ISIS.
What was the guy thinking?
In the latest straw poll among Republicans, held at the CPAC conference,Walker came in a close second – 21.6%, only behind Rand Paul, who had over 25% to come in first place. Since this is a likely predictor of a candidates ability to organize a campaign, its a good thing Elizabeth Warren shot him down quickly, for his ignorance.
In a beautiful tweet, showing support for unions all across the country, she said:
If Scott Walker sees 100,000 teachers and firefighters as his enemies, maybe it’s time we take a closer look at his friends.
If there’s one thing most people can agree on, you don’t want Elizabeth Warren trolling you.
She’s a killer. It’s rumored Muhammad Ali refused to fight her once. Okay, jokes aside – she is definitely a force to be reckoned with given her massively growing influence within the Democratic party. And, if you are a friend of Scott Walker, you might re-think that relationship once you realize you’re about to get scrutinized by a woman who’s not afraid to take on the biggest, and baddest of them all – Wall Street.
But, it’s not just Elizabeth Warren that Walker needs to be concerned with. It’s the people in his own state that he’s offended. The state of Wisconsin’s workers are getting on Twitter and making the case against him with the hash tag: #NotATerrorist.
Elizabeth Warren, with just one tweet, showed why she is America’s choice by unions. With just one tweet she showed why Richard Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO, makes no secret of his desire for Mrs. Warren to run for President of The United States. This is America’s largest federation of labor unions, and Trumka is easily the most recognizable union leader in the country. He backs her for a reason – it’s because she genuinely cares about unions.
When people like Scott Walker make ridiculous claims against workers, Elizabeth Warren doesn’t sit quietly. And, she shows this time and time again.
