Janesville Turns out to protest Gov. Walker event with no opposition.

From Rock Netroots, out of Janesville, comes this great coverage showing middle class workers protesting Scott Walker's Holiday Inn Dinner Party and Union Roast.

John Nichols from The Nation/CapTimes and John "Sly" Sylvester in attendance.
I was somewhat surprised to see so many of Forward Janesville dinner guests pointing antagonistically towards protesters and laughing from inside their cars as they drove through the gauntlet. A few turned around as they approached the Inn entrance doors and flipped the bird our way in a final salute before entering. Not many noticed it as most of the attention was kept focused on the protesters in the street. 

Check out the rest of the story and slide show here.

  1. The Repug trash of this nation will rarely, if ever get out of their cars and can only give the finger to the good Americans exercising their free speech rights.

    They are cowards and bullies and they are afraid. But then again, the fear center in the brains of these greedy and selfish haters is much larger than those of the rest of the population.

    My gut feeling is that these losers are literally creating more individuals that hate and act in anti-social ways by poisoning them with neurotoxins like lead. Janesville residents are exposed to lots of toxic chemicals and aside from getting a lobotomy, brain damage from toxins is another way to grow the republican party.....
