"This is why public employee unions should be illegal -- they foster a sense of entitlement that leads to criminality.
So, Paul Krugman, where's your civility talk now? Will you write a column suggesting that unions are over-entitled? That the left feels too free with its efforts at intimidation? That maybe there's something sick, or evil, at the heart of the Wisconsin Democratic party? Or will you just stick your fingers in your ears and move on? I know how I'm betting." -- Instapundit

Excerpt from the threat and blackmail @ Scrib. See the whole soon since Scrib is likely to take it down for sheer criminality:
Entry by one "Jim Shankman" aka Op:countertroll Vs Althouse and Meade Move the Fuck out of Our City Get out, and stay out. Far out. Meade - You ain't no man for this city. We're out on thestreets every day, all day. The 77 square is not for y'all. You say we're from out of state? Bullshit. You're from fucking out of state. We'll show you just how fuckingMadison we are. Althouse, we will ruin your goddamn career, your comfort, yourpocketbook, your sense of safety and wellbeing, and your life. Because you have taken the bread from our table – a 5,000 dollar donation(each) in your own names and made public to the Industrial Workers of the Worldgeneral fund, the Bradley Manning Defense Fund, the Recall Alberta Darlingeffort....

I don't know exactly what steps Althouse and Meade have taken, but something like this directed at me would be met, on my property, by my primary negotiator, Mr. Mossberg.

Your Say

This is organized crime. It is terrorism pure and simple. What will the attorney general do? Indictments and aggressive prosecution is in order. Someone is in desperate need of some jail time here.

This is not America. These people are the enemies of everything decent this country was founded on.
Fuck them to fucking death.

This is coordinated and ongoing, and not just against Althouse. With diligent pursuit of e-mail threads under search warrants RICO indictments could ensue.

Of course, then it would be federalized, and we know what Holder would do. Perhaps a zealous Wisconsin DA with political ambitions should pursue this.

And when otherwise decent cops are part of the same racket, who do you turn to? Who can you possibly trust?

A commenter found the creep's picture. Another his address. And yes, he and his girlfriend look exactly like the hipster douchebags you would imaging them to be.

Mr. Mossberg is a fine negotiator. So is Col. Colt.

A gigantic narrative has been building at an accellerating rate, and it's time for a series of documentaries detailing and enumerating the whole rotten lefty universe.

I say a series for two reasons: 1) there's so much ground to cover that an 8-hour (or longer) single film is out of the question. 2) The left and its butt buddies in the MSM would do their level best to bury it (anyone remember Hanoi Hilton's fate?). By breaking it up into downloadable but comprehensive segments, the word can be spread.

If the Internet is shut down to prevent this, then hand-carried DVDs will do.

The bigger story won't be the revelations from the series, but the narrative of how it was fought, suppressed, and by whom. With its curiosity peaked by the suppression scandal, the DVDs/download movies will be even more effective.

Is WI one big Mafia state, akin Sicily, or is it just my imagination?

As Gov. Christie of New Jersey said: 'Talk to me about your pensions now, or in ten years you won't have any.'

With this I say that hipster = douchebag.

Did someone say "RICO"? I thought so. Public employee unions would appear to me to qualify as a continuing criminal enterprise--extortion, death threats, and intimidation, corruption of public officials, and the systematic denial of civil rights of employees who refuse to toe the unions' line. Lock 'em up, dismantle their organizations, and, most importantly, seize their funds. Can't threaten too many people if they don't have a pot to piss in.
