In Wisconsin, the True Face of the Left: Midnight Knocks and Jack Boots
Remember, their passion for tolerance only extends to themselves, when they need it. It most certainly does not extend to you:
Megyn Kelly shared new information tonight about a series of terrifying raids which were reportedly a form of political retribution against supporters of Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI). She explained that a few of the people who were raided came forward and spoke to National Review about what they experienced.
Kelly reported that Cindy Archer had a raid conducted on her home when she was sound asleep one night. Archer claims that more than a dozen police officers were yelling and pounding on her door. She said that police would not tell her why they were there as they ransacked her home, Kelly reported. Police officers reportedly seized Archer's computers and phones and told her that she couldn't tell anyone what happened.
Eric O'Keefe, a member of the Wisconsin Club for Growth, told Kelly tonight that people were "targeted based on a theory which is completely unsupportable under Wisconsin law." He explained that they were attacked because "the left was tired of losing election after election after election."

For dozens of conservatives, the years since Scott Walker’s first election as governor of Wisconsin transformed the state — known for pro-football championships, good cheese, and a population with a reputation for being unfailingly polite — into a place where conservatives have faced early-morning raids, multi-year secretive criminal investigations, slanderous and selective leaks to sympathetic media, and intrusive electronic snooping. Yes, Wisconsin, the cradle of the progressive movement and home of the “Wisconsin idea” — the marriage of state governments and state universities to govern through technocratic reform — was giving birth to a new progressive idea, the use of law enforcement as a political instrument, as a weapon to attempt to undo election results, shame opponents, and ruin lives.
Most Americans have never heard of these raids, or of the lengthy criminal investigations of Wisconsin conservatives. For good reason. Bound by comprehensive secrecy orders, conservatives were left to suffer in silence as leaks ruined their reputations, as neighbors, looking through windows and dismayed at the massive police presence, the lights shining down on targets’ homes, wondered, no doubt, What on earth did that family do? This was the on-the-ground reality of the so-called John Doe investigations, expansive and secret criminal proceedings that directly targeted Wisconsin residents because of their relationship to Scott Walker, their support for Act 10, and their advocacy of conservative reform.
Long past time for conservatives to stop pretending that the Left means well, but is simply misguided. The brass-knuckled fascists in Wisconsin are not wrong, they're evil.
