CPAC Walker: I Can Beat ISIS Since I Handled Union Protesters

The protests in Wisconsin during 2011 by all measures relative to their size, structure and general disposition were indisputably among the most peaceful protests in the USA over the past 50 years.

But watch Gov. Scott Walker compare his inability to engage with Wisconsin constituents during those protests as proof that he has the ability to engage the global threat posed by Islamic terrorists.

National Review!! Excerpt:
Secondly, it is insulting to the protesters, a group I take no pleasure in defending. The protesters in Wisconsin, so furiously angry over Walker’s reforms and disruptive to the procedures of passing laws, earned plenty of legitimate criticism. But they’re not ISIS. They’re not beheading innocent people. They’re Americans, and as much as we may find their ideas, worldview, and perspective spectacularly wrongheaded, they don’t deserve to be compared to murderous terrorists.

Strike-through edits are mine.
