The Tea Party takes on middle America

Posted on

From the First Post Daily:

In Tahrir Square in Cairo, there was a young Egyptian man with a sign stating: 'Egypt Supports Wisconsin Workers: One World, One Pain'. In Madison, Egypt's revolution has been frequently evoked. Two dollars a day in the colony, or $45,000 a year in the heart of the Empire: at both ends people are being pushed over the edge.

The war in Madison signals the onset of a new Republican onslaught on labour — with the implicit aim of destroying organised labour in America. The stakes are very high.

The Republican right wants to destroy middle, professional America.

It's a short step to what Cameron's doing here.

This is the reality of the right - seeking to destroy livelihoods to support the wealth of a few.

Wisconsin workers have to win. Or next they'll come for you.
