In other words

"Beyond the Podium, Part 1." In a new series of short video blogs, Governor Scott Walker talks about what inspired him to get into public service. #Walker16 #VIdeoBlog #GOP #Election16 by scottwalker

If you pay too much attention to disease, you actually create it! Or something:

WASHINGTON — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) says the proper way to address racial issues in America is by concentrating on what brings people together rather than focusing on “racial discord.” Doing the latter, the presidential candidate argued Sunday, could risk generating even more unrest.

Walker was campaigning outside a restaurant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, when a reporter asked him about the anniversary of the death of teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and what it portends for race relations in South Carolina. The governor answered that Americans should emulate the families of the victims of the Charleston church shooting.

“One, I think in general if anyone focuses on racial discord we’re going to get more,” Walker said in a video posted by Democratic opposition research firm American Bridge. “If we focus on unity we’re going to get more of that. The families of the massacre in Charleston showed us the way.”

“Even days after the horrific shooting, the emotion they showed, the willingness to try and bring Charleston, this state, this country together. I think it’s a prime example if we focus on things that unite us, ways to share the American dream,” he said.

Coincidentally, this gives him the perfect rational for refusing to discuss police violence!

  1. Goes well with the 17th Century level of knowledge Rethugs apply to everything. Repukes: bravely marching America into the past.

  2. For Republicans, those ‘1,000 points of light’ were the lighted bamboo slivers under the fingernails of the 99.9%.

  3. “I think it’s a prime example if we focus on things that unite us, ways to share the American dream.”

    This is not even a sentence.
    I think that Scotty should have stayed in college rather than dropping out. Back in the days when he was college-age, Wisconsin had an excellent public higher education system.

  4. Yeah, you fucking nutcake. Let’s just have more gun violence in churches, schools, parks, movie theatres and wherever the fuck we go so all the devastated families of the victims can get together, hold hands, and sing America The Beautiful. Now, that would surely solve the race issues and bring the country together. Right?
