On Diane Hendricks, Scott Walker, And Willie Lynch
It seems not a day goes by in which Scott Walker and the divisive GOP isn’t caught doing or saying something. Last week was no different with the release of a video–one which comes from before the massive protests that swept the nation. The video shows, a new Governor Scott Walker meeting with billionaire Diane Hendricks. Hendricks is a widow and billionaire, the 138th wealthiest person in America according to Forbes. It was with Diane, Walkers largest in state donor, that the Governor was most comfortable. Walker has a history of being most truthful with his billionaire donors. Some may recall the infamous David Koch call in which radio host and blogger Ian Murphy called Walker pretending to be David Koch. The result was a whole slew of secrets being exposed including the fact that Walker consider planting paid troublemakers in the crowd of protesters. With Hendricks, owner of ABC Supply, Walker admitted his strategy. When asked if Wisconsin would become a red state, a “right to work” state, Walker responds by explaining SB 11, or the “Budget Repair Bill” that sparked the massive protests. Then he goes on to say his strategy is–and I quote, “Divide and Conquer”.
Hendricks, an apparent fascist herself seems to like this strategy. The strategy, however, goes much deeper. Divide and conquer was the strategy Willie Lynch offered to slave owners to keep their slaves in line. There are many comparisons between Willie Lynch and the GOP regime that has taken over our country. But no clearer is a comparison drawn than when Scott Walker explains his plans of tearing apart our state mercilessly with “divide and conquer.” Before everyone goes off calling me a wing nut, take a moment to ponder these quotes, written by Willie himself.
“…I HAVE OUTLINED A NUMBER OF DIFFERENCES AMONG THE SLAVES; AND I TAKE THESE DIFFERENCES AND MAKE THEM BIGGER. I USE FEAR, DISTRUST AND ENVY FOR CONTROL PURPOSES…
… I shall assure you that DISTRUST IS STRONGER THAN TRUST AND ENVY STRONGER THAN ADULATION, RESPECT OR ADMIRATION. The Black slaves after receiving this indoctrination shall carry on and will become self-refueling and self-generating for HUNDREDS of years, maybe THOUSANDS. Don’t forget, you must pitch the OLD black male vs. the YOUNG black male, and the YOUNG black male against the OLD black male. You must use the DARK skin slaves vs. the LIGHT skin slaves, and the LIGHT skin slaves vs. the DARK skin slaves. You must use the FEMALE vs. the MALE, and the MALE vs. the FEMALE. You must also have white servants and overseers [who] distrust all Blacks…
…But it is NECESSARY THAT YOUR SLAVES TRUST AND DEPEND ON US. THEY MUST LOVE, RESPECT AND TRUST ONLY US…”
And that just covers the introduction. Scott Walker is the new Willie Lynch. Only this time it isn’t slaves, it’s the working class and this time they don’t want us to trust and depend on owners, yet corporations. Hendricks herself has been quoted saying ““Taxing job creators is a sure way to stop the engine of economic growth. We need to get out of the way of the small business owner — and big business owners — and allow them to do what government can only dream of doing: creating jobs and thereby creating wealth..” By Scott Walker telling her the way to get what she wants, a corporate run state in which everyone just accepts what corporations do and learn to depend on them, he is showing his vast knowledge of the Willie Lynch letter. Switch a few words and it will describe the GOP’s plan to take over our country to a tea. Thankfully we won’t take it. We will continue fighting.
One day longer! One day stronger!
