Scott walker supporters attack with profanity after bad liberal reporting

Hate and foul language was the response from University of Wisconsin-Madison students after the campus Republican group sent out an email calling for support of Gov. Scott Walker’s budget plans.

“F*ck Scott Walker.”

“Listen you c*nts, don’t email me this political bullshit.”

“You must have a big hairy pair of brass balls and a marginally functional brain to  be recruiting for Republicans on the UW campus right now.”

“Those are just a few of the vulgar, hate-filled responses the College Republicans at the University of Wisconsin-Madison received after sending a campuswide e-mail Monday asking students and scholars to keep an open mind about Gov. Scott Walker’s budget proposal,” noted College Fix.

College Republicans chair Courtney Mullen told The College Fix about the responses from the email blast which cost the group $100 (a fine). In total, there were roughly 200 responses, with almost all of them being incredibly negative, she said.

“Our goal wasn’t to offend people with this mass email,” Mullen told The College Fix. “Our purpose really was to open up dialogue around campus and show that there are other opinions than just the chancellor’s on this budget proposal. I’m disappointed that so many on this campus have shut down that opportunity.”

Jezebel misreported details in the budget and the impact on sexual assault reporting by students and this prompted a similar article by the Daily Beast – also misleading.

“…a spokesman for the University of Wisconsin came forward—over two weeks after the budget was released—to clarify: the University requested that Gov. Walker delete the requirements because efforts were redundant with their compliance of the Clery Act. Scott Walker’s camp assures that he’s committed to protecting victims,” wrote Jezebel in the correction.

USA Today published a story that clarified Walker’s position and the hyperbolic response by the schools…not necessarily cooling the language of some Walker critics it seems.
