After learning the state Senate passed the collective bargaining portion of the budget repair bill without the 14 missing Democrats, the Capitol erupted Wednesday evening as protesters flooded the closed building against a court order.
The hearings where the Senate passed the bill lasted less than a half hour, prompting the building to officially close around 6:30 p.m. Protesters outside chanted in frustration, “Let us in.”
After about an hour and a half, protesters stormed the building’s entrances, forcing themselves past police blockades.
Protesters who remained in the building past the hearing’s conclusion ran the risk of being arrested for disorderly conduct because of a March 3 court order that declared people could not occupy the Capitol after hours.
Now this is funny stuff, because THIS is what liberals accused the Tea Party of being like. But, the Tea Party has never behaved like this. Liberals make all kinds of lying accusations against conservatives. But, when liberals don’t get their way, look who behaves violently. It’s very hypocritical and very funny! Bravo for Wisconsin Republicans who stuck to their guns!
