Operation Burn Notice

25 November 2011

The good folks of Wisconsin are unhappy with their governor. Right after he was elected, Gov. Scott Walker took the unannounced action of introducing legislation to bust the state’s public employees unions.  Republican legislators had to break procedural rules to do it, but they passed the bill in an illegal, late night session.  As a result of Walker’s assault on the pro-labor tradition of Wisconsin,   there is presently a recall drive under way to remove Governor Walker from office.  And Governor Walker’s supporters are using a tactic to save him from the people’s ire that is so below the belt, so dirty and  so blatantly felonious that no one would do it but an arrogant sociopath who feels himself above every law and civilized standard of human conduct.

It’s not the dishonest rhetoric that we hear from the anti-recall forces.  And it isn’t their threats of violence against the families of the recall volunteers who collect signatures for their petitions.  No, it’s Operation Burn Notice.  OBN members pose as recall petition volunteers, and just like the real ones, they also collect signatures for Scott Walker’s recall.  But they do not submit their completed petition forms; they burn them.  Residents who sign legitimate recall petitions may never have them counted by the Government Accountability Board, because they had the misfortune of giving their signatures to Tea Party activists instead of to honest recall drive volunteers.  One man who was collecting recall signatures in front of Walmart told a local newspaper that he would not be turning them in.  He said there are about 1,000 OBN members like him.  They can be seen on Tea Party Facebook pages, talking about how many people they deceived and bragging about how much democracy they destroyed today.  Creeping fascism in America is no longer creeping.  It is smiling at you in front of Walmart, asking for your signature.

The ghosts of the Brownshirts rise from their hell and glow with pride.  Their ilk lives on in Operation Burn Notice.  And there is a whole year ahead until the 2012 election for the new Republican party to channel the Reich and further sharpen its foul tactics. The GOP has thrown down the gauntlet, and we see how it is going to be.

The official Facebook page of Operation Burn Notice is here (note: since this page was outed, OBN has moved its command and control to an unknown location):
