Who are these people?

     We recently documented the type of folks who are involved in the effort to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Video of a protest outside an Americans for Prosperity conference in Milwaukee revealed the participation of a very radical segment of society.
    
     But a series of other recent videos show that the union-sponsored protesters and their allies may be a lot farther out there than we initially thought. 
    
     The radical left was out in force to express its displeasure with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who recently spoke at an event in Milwaukee. Some of the protesters attended the event to complain about Emanuel’s efforts to remake his city’s schools by lengthening the school day and implementing other important education reforms. Others toted “Reclaim Wisconsin” signs to promote the Walker recall, while others seemed focused on simply harassing people. 
    
     Milwaukee police eventually dispersed the crowd when it got too aggressive, but the video is a perfect reminder of the types of radicals who are fighting against education reform in Chicago and Wisconsin. 
    
     The outrageous tactics used by extremists in Milwaukee, however, may be only the beginning. On Sunday, the MacIver Institute posted a video shot outside of WEAC’s activists’ training seminar in Madison earlier this month. 
    
     The event was conducted by the Industrial Areas Foundation to introduce teachers to the musings of Saul Alinsky, author of the book “Rules for Radicals.”
    
     In the MacIver video, a WEAC staffer who confirmed the training session was on Alinsky’s principles, said the session is “about empowering people, and teaching them how to thrive in a democracy.”
    
     By thrive we assume he means inciting chaos.
    
     In “Rules for Radicals” Alinsky wrote that [t]he job of the organizer is to maneuver and bait the establishment so that it will publicly attack him as a dangerous enemy. The infamous community organizer explained that the hysterical instant reaction of the establishment [will] not only validate [the organizer’s] credentials of competency but also ensure automatic popular invitation.
    
     Alinsky, who dedicated “Rules for Radicals” to Lucifer, once threatened to stage a “fart-in” at a Rochester (New York) Philharmonic concert to disrupt the event, and later threatened a “piss-in” at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport – a plan that involved protesters occupying the airport’s bathroom stalls until his demands were met by “the establishment.”
    
     What oppressed person doesnt want, literally or figuratively, to shi- on his oppressors? [The Rochester Philharmonic] was the closest chance theyd have,” Alinsky said of his plans, according to Wikipedia. “Such tactics arent just cute; they can be useful in driving your opponent up the wall. Very often the most ridiculous tactic can prove the most effective.
    
     That’s apparently a message the far-left union bosses and rabble-rousers in Wisconsin are taking to heart.
