Union message is a bit scrambled......Why were they surprised the students didn't know what they were protesting?

When the protests in Wisconsin first began, we showed you video of students admitting their teachers were bringing them to the Capitol and saying they had no idea what they were protesting. At the time, some defended the video by saying we can’t really rely on the statements of children.

But now, equally damning video has surfaced of adult protesters not being able to describe the effects of Gov. Walker’s emergency budget bill, many appearing clueless about what is in the legislation and making off-the-wall statements.

One union “spokesperson,” however, doesn’t have any trouble saying that if the bill passes someone will “throw the first brick into the statehouse,“ which will make him ”happy.” There’s also the gem of one man claiming the phrase “liberty and justice for all” is part of the preamble to the Constitution:

To be fair, we can’t say this sample represents the knowledge of the entire group of protesters. But it does seem to support accusations that at least some are protesting for protesting‘s sake or don’t understand why they’re out there.

It makes you wonder.

Don't look for a lot of intelligence in the collective bargaining crowd. That system doesn't reward individual excellence. Consequently, excellent individuals usually gather elsewhere.
