This week in Madison, Wisconsin a group of Special Olympians was honored by Gov. Scott Walker. It was to be a big deal for this wonderful athletes. They had Bucky Badger there for pictures, they had a pep band playing, and, unfortunately, they had Zombies from the United Council of University of Wisconsin Students who were protesting Gov. Walker.
Political protest is one thing, ruining an event for the mentally and developmentally challenged is another. It goes beyond the pale. What the hell are they learning in the classroom that would convince them that this sort of behavior is acceptable?
James Taranto in the Wall Street Journal sums it up well.
It’s not uncommon for political protesters to act like bullies, but it takes a special uncouthness to bully Special Olympians. It would be like holding an angry antiwar protest at the funeral of a fallen soldier–which, come to think of it, is just what the so-called Westboro Baptist Church does.
How obnoxious are the zombies of Wisconsin? So obnoxious that that they could use lessons in civility from the Westboro Baptist Church.
Remember, when dealing with the Living Dead or Zombies, it is head shots only.
