Here's some more of that "new civility" we've been hearing about

So, it's not really about the kids, after all... Shocking.

Protesters crowded the street outside Messmer Preparatory School in Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood as Governor Walker visited the school Friday to read to children.

The protests came just hours after someone vandalized the school ahead of the Governor's visit.

"Some of these folks super glued our front doors at the prep school," said Br. Bob Smith, OFM, the president of Messmer Catholic Schools, about the school on the corner of North Fratney and East Burleigh Streets.

He told Newsradio 620 WTMJ that a woman was walking in front of the school Thursday, asking people to protest.

According to Br. Smith, one protester said " 'Get ready for a riot,' because they were going to disrupt the visit."

Br. Smith said that, in his opinion, the Republican governor's visit to read to students there on Friday was not about political overtones connected to protests that have been happening all year in the state regarding the rollback of collective bargaining rights for many public workers.

"People ought to start acting like adults," said Br. Smith.

"You've got little kids who have no clue what you're even talking about, and you make something political when it isn't, that's just flat-out wrong."

Fat chance, Brother Bob, because living in the petulant state of pre-adolescent leftist whinery means never having to grow up.

Dig this video of what went down at Messmer a couple of days ago from the Maciver Institute:

Make no mistake, this is about school choice. It is about the Governor. And as I said to a lady yesterday, "Look, this is a democracy. There was an election that the state voted. The Governor won. It's over. There will be another election - vote again. But stop acting like children. Because, think of the example you've set for all of the kids who are watching this not just here but all over this state."

Brother Bob insults the good nature and behavior of his school's kids by in any way shape or form likening them to the goons outside the school but the point is noted.

It is also noted the ethic make-up of the students there at the school which of course means that not only are the protesters a bunch of counter-productive hypocrites when it comes to education, they are evidentally racists as well.
