Networks that Railed Against Rhetoric of Tea Parties Offer No Anger for Hitler, Dictator Signs at WI Protests

The same networks that assailed the allegedly extreme invective from the Tea Party have, thus far, not found anything interesting about signs implying that Scott Walker, Wisconsin's Republican governor, is a Nazi or a dictator in the style of Hosni Mubarak.

On Thursday's newscasts and Friday's Today, Good Morning America and the Early Show, the extreme rhetoric of some of the signs went unremarked. Some of the images, which included pictures of Walker as Adolf Hitler and signs that read "Scott Mubarak: Get Out," were seen briefly during crowd shots.

But, none of the programs raised any objections to the hateful rhetoric surrounding Wisconsin's plan to reform collective bargaining and force federal workers to pay for part of their retirement.

On CBS's Early Show, Cynthia Bowers defended, "And tens of thousands of people are expected to once again descend upon this capitol building today to protest what they say are anti-union legislation rules....more than 10,000 protesters rallied against a proposed budget bill they called drastic and extreme."

Over on ABC's Good Morning America, Chris Bury sounded a similar theme: "Last night, more public workers, including these firemen, poured into the capitol. Some families camping out overnight, in a last-ditch effort to protest budget cuts they fear would cripple their union rights."

Today correspondent John Yang explained, "They are angry over proposed budget cuts, which include a plan to end collective bargaining rights for many state workers."

None of the networks discussed signs deriding, "Scott Walker = Adolf Hitler." They didn't focus on a poster with a target over Walker's head, demanding, "Reload: Repeal Walker."

More of these signs can be found here.

To see how the networks trumpeted alleged incidents of violence and racism by the Tea Party, go here.

Isn't it amazing how some will cry foul and then sit on their hands when "their team" is actually the ones playing foul!

A lot of that has to do with our "Activist in Chief" being on board with all of this.

Yes, the Activist has been hard at work with reasurring his Unions brothers. I don't know how he has time to run a country or take care of the economy.....oh wait....he is not....Soros and the left media are trying to do that along with the Unions and Google.  lol

 Yep. The violent rhetoric and Nazi symbolism conveniently gets ignored. Where's the civility?

 Yep. And Soros is complaining that Obama isn't doing enough now. http://www.newsmax.com/InsideCover/george-soros-obama-agenda/2011/02/18/id/386694 . But we're not supposed to believe that Soros has a say in our government. FTR, comparing the Tea Party protests with the teachers in WI., is crazy. (Not you OP) These are TEACHERS out there screaming like idiots, a few signs I've seen misspelled, saying they're doing it for the children. While the children are out of school not learning a damn thing except seeing their teachers screaming like fools. Nice role models....NOT. I wonder if the kids will be able to make up the time for this crap or if they will all fail.
