Earth 420

By Jeff Simpson

For the Comic book geeks out there, you know that the way that the Marvel Universe has used to explain anomalies in the timelines of trying to keep so many stories going, is by using alternate realities. The vast majority of their stories take place in EARTH 616. It is their way of having continuity amongst their stories. When they want to tell stories that have no basis in their current reality they use alternate universes.

Well our friends on the right have joined in and created their own version of reality, which can only be described as Earth - 420.

This from Scott Walker's new ghostwritten book (H/T Barbara With):

  “As we prepared to leave, the state troopers saw that the protesters had physically blocked the entrance we had used to come onto the property. So they turned the squad car around and headed toward the other exit. We watched in disbelief as the throng of people rushed toward the second exit to block our path,” writes Walker, a potential 2016 presidential candidate.
“As we tried to pull out, they surrounded the car and began beating on the windows and rocking the vehicle. Just as we extricated ourselves from their grip, a truck pulled up and blocked our path, playing a game of chicken with the troopers. They turned the lights and sirens on warning them to get out of the way. Eventually he backed up, and we sped off,” he continued.

Now some think he might be referring to an event he held in Hudson, WI:


I have also heard he might be referring to a protest at Devil's Lake:


Does it really matter where it didnt happen?  The point is it did not happen.   Every protest at the time was the same, big crowd across the street, lots of chanting, camaraderie, and laughing, yell Shame as he leaves and go home until Walker comes back to your neighborhood.    

Scott Walker has been desperately trying to repaint the picture of the incredibly peaceful protests as being violent and ugly.   It will not work.

The reality is the vast majority of  violence and ugliness came from the right.  Who will ever forget this gem?

Murphy: Bring a baseball bat. That’s what I’ddo.
Walker: I have one in my office; you’d be happy with that. I got a Slugger with my name on it.

Murphy: Right, right. Well, we’ll back you any way we can. But, uh, what we were thinking about the crowds was, uh, was planting some troublemakers.
Walker: You know, the, well, the only problem with that — because we thought about that. The problem — the, my only gut reaction to that is right now the lawmakers I’ve talked to have just completely had it with them, the public is not really fond of this. The teachers union did some polling of focus groups, I think, and found out that the public turned on ’em the minute they closed school down for a couple days. The guys we’ve got left are largely from out of state, and I keep dismissing it in all my press conferences saying, ‘Eh, they’re mostly from out of state.’ My only fear would be is if there was a ruckus caused is that that would scare the public into thinking maybe the governor has gotta settle to avoid all these problems. You know, whereas, I’ve said, ‘Hey, you know, we can handle this, people can protest. This is Madison, you know, full of the ’60s liberals. Let ’em protest.’ It’s not gonna affect us. And as long as we go back to our homes and the majority of the people are telling us we’re doing the right thing, let ’em protest all they want. Um, so that’s my gut reaction, is that I think it’s actually good if they’re constant, they’re noisy, but they’re quiet, nothing happens, ’cause sooner or later the media stops finding ’em interesting.

Or the first time he explained his whole Governing strategy and philosophy on video:

  For all the talk of the Tea Party causing a civil war within the Republican Party, the attempted recall of Governor Scott Walker revealed a real ugly side to Wisconsin’s left. That ugliness has consequences.   

Apparently Wiggy looked in the mirror for the first time, but do not look for his blogging to improve from the lies and hate that he has made his trademark.   

However, the people in Wisconsin are waking up to what horrible people the republican party has elected and keeps in leadership roles and remember what life was like in Wisconsin before their vitriol and ignorance ruled the day!  
They found someone in Scott Walker who would cash in and prey on that hatred.  The people have had enough and need to show up next year and help escort this division right out the door.   
ICYWW:   Who would be the Super hero in Earth 420? Do we really need to ask?



  1. I won't cheapen myself nor enrich that idiot by purchasing his book. But I wonder if this book is filled with as much crap as it appears ..this night be the smoking gun that takes him down. Wouldn't it be ironic if his demise resulted from his own bloated ego rather than any outside party.

  2. I sent an email to Politifact, asking them to research this story. The question to ask Walker is why nothing was done at this criminal uprising. Ask the clown why someone physically attacking the governor's vehicle would have no charges filed against them. Why the press didn't cover this story. He wants to position himself as this great hero who chose not to punish his enemies. What is next, someone shot him but he was the bigger man and shrugged it off?
    No arrests? No charges? No news story? No truth!!!!!

  3. 'Untimidated' should really refer to everyone who stood out and gathered recall signatures amid all of the hate that the RW spewed. Continuously.
