Walker gave up his "divide and conquer" guilt over Act 10...to God.

The purity and "righteousness" of the conservative belief system has never been more abundantly clear than in a statement made by Scott Walker in his book "Unintimidated."

Reporter Dave Weigel wrote in Salon:
God got Scott Walker out of a serious jam. It was February 2011, Ian Murphy, the editor of the Buffalo Beast, called Walker’s office pretending to be donor/industrialist David Koch … goaded Walker into talking about his strategy for passing Act 10 … “Bring a baseball bat,” said Murphy/Koch. “I have one in my office,” said Walker, “a Slugger with my name on it.” 

…when Murphy/Koch asked about the wisdom of “planting some troublemakers,” Walker said his team had “thought about that” but dismissed it.
Here’s where God sent his message directly to Walker, turning his bad divisive arrogance into a more subtle nudge from our Lord:
“Only later did I realize that God had a plan for me with that episode,” writes Walker. After his press conference, he picked up his daily devotional and saw the title for Feb. 23: The power of humility, the burden of pride. “I looked up and said, ‘I hear you, Lord,’” writes Walker. “God was sending me a clear message to not do things for personal glory or fame. It was a turning point that helped me in future challenges, helped me stay focused on the people I was elected to serve, and reminded me of God’s abundant grace and the paramount need to stay humble.”
It's kind of like hearing voices in your head to justify your actions, isn't it?

Don't get me wrong, I still think Walker is a sociopath. But just for the sake of this story, let's just say if he did feel anything once, he gave it up to God.


  1. Walker is a flim-flam-man. Obviously he is working to line-up the evangelical vote for his Presidential run. His recall victory is therefore proof that he is God's anointed-one. The big white-guy-in-the-sky was obviously directing his most beloved billionaires to bankroll the Desperado. It's a miracle!

  2. Apparently the big G has a soft spot for the GoP

    "“It’s really happy day for me, and I just thank the Lord for carrying me through all of this and it really drove my detractors crazy because I had the joy of Jesus in me and they didn’t understand it,” said DeLay to reporters in September. - Tom DeLay


  3. So God was telling our newly humbled Governor not to brag over the phone unless you're sure who you're talking to first? What a very convenient (and timely!) message! Just think of how embarrassing it would have been if God had said "negotiate with the unions" (i.e., the worker is worthy of his hire) or "give unto Caesar that which is Caesar's" (i.e., raise taxes! On the rich! For surely it's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God...) or "that which you do for the the least of these so too you do for me" or some other really tough thing that might not go down well with his political puppet masters? But then, Scott Walker is a humble kind of guy, with much to be humble about.
