Madison Protester Threatens Kleefisch, Hopes Colon Cancer Kills her – *Explicit Language*
Outside the Capitol in Madison, Wisconsin today, I asked anti-Walker protesters what career advice they have for Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch after “we throw her out of this building.” A certain response was unassailably chilling.
Christian Hartsock: So what’s your career advice for Kleefisch after we throw her out?
Protester: Run, get the f— out of the state.
Hartsock: Why, what’s going to happen?
Protester: We’re coming after her anyways, so it doesn’t freaking matter anyways, win or lose.
Hartsock: What are we going to do with her?
Protester: I don’t know, hopefully the colon cancer will take her before we get her.
Hartsock: There you go, there you go. And if it doesn’t?
Protester: Just get the f— out of the state.
The polling on the governor’s race between Scott Walker and Tom Barrett is close, but the numbers between Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and her opponent, Mahlon Mitchell are even closer.
In fairness, some one the left have noted that Kleefisch’s advocacy on colo-rectal cancer issues since her diagnosis in 2010, which has been critical to increasing awareness of the disease. According to the liberal Cap Times: “We certainly have our differences with Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch. But we recognize that she has stepped up as an outspoken advocate for colon-cancer survivors — and for Wisconsinites who might be at risk.”
We patiently await the decriers of the “war on women” to condemn this brand of rhetoric emanating from their own rank and file — though we understand that may warrant extra patience.
