A Wisconsin state employees union president let loose about the Tea Party the day after Gov. Scott Walker won his recall election, referring to gatherings as a “tea bag” and saying its members are “a bunch of haters…that want to go back to the 50s. White man rule.”
According to video posted online, Gilbert Johnson of the American Federation of State, County, Municipal Employees Local 82 was speaking at an Occupy Milwaukee rally. He praised its members for being multiracial and instructed everyone present to “hug” the person next to them:
You never see this at a tea bag, man. What you have is a bunch of haters, people that tell lies, people that want to go back to the 50s. White man rule. White man only.
In the good state of Wisconsin, we have people that lie, they want money and they care about themselves. You know, the statistic came out that the minority population will soon be exceeding the white population and all of a sudden we started having guns, and they started ‘let’s get guns, let’s get this castle doctrine, and you know let’s go back to the 50s way where we could just kill people and hang people and go back to that time we tried to get so far away from.
So, you know, that’s what we’re up against. We’re up against people that want to have those kind of people concentrate on those kind of things so they’re not paying attention to their pocketbooks. In the meantime they’re voting for someone who’s taking money out of their pockets, he’s telling them look, you can have guns and you can be hateful and that’s OK in Wisconsin. We’re here to tell him that’s not OK in Wisconsin, it’ll never be OK in Wisconsin…we’re here because we’re saying hell no to hate.
