Look Who Suddenly Supports Labor Now That Scabs Are Messing With Football (Hint: It Is Scott Walker)

News

Oh LOOK who is suddenly on the side of organized labor, now that a bunch of scab refs are messing with his precious football? (Hint: it is Scott Walker, the union-busting asshole of a governor from Wisconsin.)


For those of you who do not follow football, the NFL has been using scab referees for the past three weeks after contract negotiations with the refs’ union broke down. The league wants to replace refs' defined-benefit pensions with riskier (and stingier) 401(k)s. The referees, however, argue that the NFL hauls in $9 billion per year and can afford to provide the pension plans that the refs have enjoyed since the 1970s.

Then, on Monday night, the Green Bay Packers (who, as the name suggests, are from Green Bay, Wisconsin) lost to the Seattle Seahawks after these scab referees made a questionable call that was later found to be unsupported by video evidence. [Editrix's note: "Found to unsupported by evidence" is Kris E. Benson's way of saying "was the worst call since that one in the Raiders playoff game that said dude's touchdown was incomplete after he landed on his back in the endzone with the ball on his chest." Yeah, you remember that call.]

Governor Walker’s response, of course, was to applaud the NFL for engaging in cost-cutting measures and sensible, bipartisan solutions to our shared challenges. NO, just kidding, he took to Twitter to demand that the NFL bring back the “real refs.”

Scott Walker Twitter

After Governor Walker’s own union-busting law went into effect, union workers were replaced with prison labor. But that’s different; THOSE unions were representing a bunch of broads who teach our nation’s children; THESE unions have something to do with football.

Oh and also, Scott Walker says that this has nothing to do with unions, just with refs (who, by the way, are amateurs and scabs) making bad calls. And this is how people like Scott Walker resolve a little problem known as "cognitive dissonance."

Today we are having a Very Serious Conversation about how liberals are very uncivil and mean and terrible and vulgar, because a restaurant in Virginia very nicely asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders to GTFO, due to how she is an atrocious liar who works for a fascist. (The restaurant comped the cheese plates that had already been served.) Meanwhile the president is threatening 79-year-old black congresswomen on Twitter and ripping babies away from their parents and just generally being a fascist. BOTH SIDES DO IT, ISN'T THAT RIGHT, VERY SERIOUS PUNDITS?

Point is, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is doing her first White House press briefing in a week, assuming she doesn't wuss out like she always does. Will she lie? Will she cry? Will she be a sack of shit like she always is? Most importantly, has she managed to find a meal since she was kicked out of the Red Hen? We certainly hope she's managed to find a Chick-fil-A or something, as we wouldn't want Our Sarah to be forced to give a press briefing while hangry.

Let's liveblog and see what a foul asshole SHS feels like being today:

Last week, Nicole Arteaga of Peoria, Arizona received the devastating news from her doctor that her baby's development had stopped and that pregnancy would end in a miscarriage. Given the option of either a D&C or prescription medication, she chose to go with the prescription. Then, like all normal people do when they get a prescription, she went to a pharmacy to have it filled.

Unfortunately for her, Brian Hrenuic -- the pharmacist at the Walgreens she went to -- refused to give her that prescription, because he opposed it on "moral grounds."
