On the ninth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that brought down the World Trade Center buildings in New York City, Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Walker saw fit to tweet about a union rally being held at the Milwaukee County Courthouse yesterday:
On the anniversary of the date that terrorists hijacked four planes and killed thousands of people by crashing those planes into the Twin Towers in New York, the Pentagon in Washington DC, and a field in rural Pennsylvania, it strikes me as more than a little outrageous that someone of Scott Walker’s stature would throw around the word “hijack” so casually just to score some cheap political points because of his hatred for labor unions.
I’d call on Scott Walker to apologize for his use of the word “hijack” on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, but I know better than to expect Scott Walker to apologize for anything he says or does. Regardless of whether he apologizes or not, Walker’s language in referring to labor unions is simply uncalled for, and it says a lot about Walker.
capper has his own take on this.
