Ed Shultz said that he was "shocked and stunned" over the recall election results, upon learning that Scott Walker won the heated race in Wisconsin. He is not alone in his anger and disappointment, but the message is loud and clear, losing is not acceptable.
Shultz is a great example of someone who cannot simply concede, his ridiculous monologue lamented Walker's win and blamed the results on campaign funding. At another point during the day he crazily said, "Scott Walker could very well be indicted in the coming days." As an article on The Blaze reports, the big donors spent about the same on each candidate, the big difference in funding came from individual donors.
"To say that I'm shocked and stunned is pretty much an understatement. But I also think Â— that as a real warning to Americans Â— that money is now infiltrated into our political system like we have never seen before. And the ruling by Citizens United is now a real message to every American."
Throughout the battle to recall Scott Walker, supporters have been posting death threats on Twitter and having multiple protests with some signs that cannot be posted here.
The recall was sparked not by illegal activity on Governor Scott Walker's part, but simply by a conflict in ideology. Unfortunately for some, they cannot accept that their beliefs are not shared by all. It is a simple difference in principle. Scott Walker was the winner; because many in Wisconsin believe that he has lived up to his promises and has done good things for the state. Instead of getting angry and even demanding his death, perhaps those on the other side of the fence can resolve to work with Walker and support him going forward. At the very least, they should ask for civility and denounce the death threats!
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was slapped after conceding to Gov. Scott Walker in the Wisconsin recall election. The reporter who shot the video, Terry Sater, said that the supporter was upset that Barrett called the Scott Walker to concede before all of the votes were counted. Unfortunately for Barrett, he had to concede the election and then get slapped to add insult to injury. Did she learn how to accept loss with dignity from the union thugs?
Mayor Tom Barrett does not deserve to get slapped; Governor Scott Walker does not deserve death threats. Ed Shultz only adds fuel to the fire when he says that the election was about money.
