One of the most worldly presidential candidates of all time, polling-at-two-percent Scott Walker, flexed his “foreign policy” muscles Monday by unveiling a brave new strategy to take down American working people.
Walker first unveiled his dueling labor-foreign policy chops at CPAC when he compared unions to ISIS, saying, “If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world.” He followed that successful endeavor with his claim that the “Soviet Union started treating [Ronald Reagan] more seriously” when Reagan ordered the firing of 11,000 air traffic controllers.
That earned Walker a “Pants on Fire” rating from PolitiFact, which took pains to note his ludicrous characterization of the firings as “one of the most important foreign policy decisions ‘made in our lifetime.'” And just last week, one of Walker’s foreign policy advisers suggested that though he lacks practical experience in diplomacy, Walker’s face-off with Wisconsin public employee unions gives him the credibility to execute a forceful foreign policy befitting a president.
As described by the Associated Press, Walker’s newly proposed “sweeping restrictions on organized labor” would “undo decades of law” protecting American working people. And a labor law professor at the University of Richmond described Walker’s proposal as a “draconian” plan that would “take the breath away from anyone who’s worked in labor relations for any length of time.”
Wowee — just wait until Putin hears about this one!
