On February 23, 2011, Scott Walker talked with who he thought was David Koch and provided the World with not only what a sucker he was but what he was up to in his attempts at trying to be a Republican Fox News Rock Star for attacking unions, teachers, the working class and whatever else that made him seem like a Ronnie Reagan wanna-be.
Ian Murphy, with the Daily Beast, had gotten Walker to admit to just how divisive, untruthful and conniving he was. There is a particularly interesting comment from Walker during the recording when asked about whether to plant troublemakers in the protesting crowds of local citizens:
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.
With Walker’s book (no title will be posted on this website) coming out in November, there turns out to be some odd statements written by his ghostwriter (Scott can always blame him) that have come into question:
Once Murphy posted audio of the call online and it was known to be a prank, Gov. Walker held a news conference on February 23rd, in which he addressed that portion of the call.
“We’ve had all sorts of ideas brought to us by staff, lawmakers, by people from all over the state. But as you heard on the tape we dismissed it and said it was not a good idea,” Gov. Walker said.
But according to an article that appeared in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel on Sunday, Gov. Walker tells a different version of the events in his new book
titled “Unintimidated: A Governor’s Story And A Nation’s Challenge.”
The Journal-Sentinel obtained an advance copy of the book and reports that Walker writes “we never – never – considered putting ‘troublemakers’ in the crowd to discredit the protesters.”
The Journal-Sentinel also reports that Walker writes he resisted taking the call, but did so because Koch’s firm owns Georgia Pacific Corp., which has mills in Green Bay. He accepted the call “after a week or more of insistent pleas” from his staff.
But Ian Murphy told the Journal-Sentinel that isn’t possible, because he made his initial call to Walker’s office around 11:30 a.m. and by 2 p.m. that day was talking to Walker.
“That’s so insane, the buck-passing,” Murphy told the Journal-Sentinel.
Walker and his staff are Blacklisters who use McCarthyistic tactics with the right-wing Recall signature database to somehow purify their contacts, their control of who attends prepared meetings and even engage in criminal activities to engage in trying to squash any kind of dissent. So of course, they would comfortably lie about when and why Walker took the “Koch phone call” to chestbeat about how “well it was going” as the Wisconsin Uprising was gathering momentum.
The new book, which is supposed to show how cool Walker is to those who remain ninformed about his failures as Governor, will ultimately be exposed as full of half truths and lies, which is essentially the Walker Brand as the truth comes out.
