A chilling reminder of what and who we are really up against

Sometimes in the daily grind of politics it is easy to forget who we are really up against in the progressive movement. This is an excerpt from Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s new book coming called Unintimidated: A Governor’s Story and a Nation’s Challenge:
THE BLAZE – “[A]s I prepared to go out to the conference room for my daily press briefing, Dave came into my office and shut the door,” Walker recalls, according to a book excerpt published online.
“Sir, I don’t show you most of these, but I thought you ought to see this one,” the officer said.
The letter was addressed to Walker’s wife, Tonette. It read:
Has Wisconsin ever had a governor assassinated? Scotts heading that way. Or maybe one of your sons getting killed would hurt him more. I want him to feel the pain. I already follow them when they went to school in Wauwatosa, so it won’t be too hard to find them in Mad. Town. Big change from that house by [BLANK] Ave. to what you got now. Just let him know that it’s not right to [EXPLETIVE] over all those people. Or maybe I could find one of the Tarantinos [Tonette’s parents] back here.
Walker eventually told his wife about the threats — but only after some time had passed.
Erwin worked tirelessly to ensure Walker’s safety, the book notes. And it wasn’t just for him: Walker’s entire family was apparently being stalked.
“Governor, I’ve been at this awhile, and when the hairs stand up on the back of my neck, you have to be concerned,” the former Marine told Walker. “They know where you go to church; they’ve been to your church. They’re following your children and tracking your children. They know where your children go to school, what time they have class, what time they get out of class.”
“They know when they had football practice. They know where your wife works, they know that she was at the grocery store at this time, they know that she went to visit her father at his residence,” he said.
The size of Walker’s security detail was eventually increased and troopers had to be assigned to monitor his children at school.
If you think that’s bad, go read how protesters tried to prevent Gov. Walker from leaving a manufacturing facility he had spoken at, to the point of battering and shaking the police car he was riding in. It’s very enlightening and a good reminder of who we are really dealing with on the left.http://therightscoop.com/a-chilling-reminder-of-what-we-are-really-up-against/
