(Madeleine Morgenstern) A Wisconsin state employees union president let loose about the Tea Party the day after Gov. Scott Walker won his recall election, referring to gatherings as a “tea bag” and saying its members are “a bunch of haters…that want to go back to the 50s. White man rule.”
According to video posted online, Gilbert Johnson of the American Federation of State, County, Municipal Employees Local 82 was speaking at an Occupy Milwaukee rally. He praised its members for being multiracial and instructed everyone present to “hug” the person next to them:
You never see this at a tea bag, man. What you have is a bunch of haters, people that tell lies, people that want to go back to the 50s. White man rule. White man only.
