WATCH! Walker Supporter Shouted Down, Arrested After Union Thugs Try To Silence Him

Posted on June 5, 2012


Wisconsin (The Gaslamp Post) – It takes balls to stand alone in the lion’s den.  That’s exactly what a former Marine and ex-fire fighter did four days ago in Milwaukee, when he attended a pro-Barret rally, with one simple question.

David Willoughby, who refused to give his name to the press because of union backlash and retaliation he faced when he left a Florida fire fighter’s union, showed up with a sign which simply said, “Support Walker, not union thugs”.  As one could imagine, his presence drew alot of fire from the majority of pro-union activists and supporters.

Here he tries to fend off attacks from all sides.

He was verbally harassed and called names, and then eventually arrested.

The short video clip demonstrates the kind of verbal abuse he endured.

The man has been smeared in the mainstream media as being a kind of rabble-rouser and troublemaker.  Other outlets painted him up as argumentative and disruptive.

Here the cops grab him and used any reason to man-handle him.

Willoughby had only one question that would seem legitimate, given the nature of the rally and the position for which candidate Barret was running.

“How are you going to create jobs in Wisconsin?”

Police took Willoughby into custody after a speech by former President Bill Clinton, to the amusement of the Barret supporters.  One supporter yelled “Take him away!” as police placed him in a cruiser.  Another supporter is reported to have yelled, “I’ll take him out!” from somewhere in the crowd.

“I have no idea why I’m being handcuffed,” he told a group of reporters who had followed him. “They won’t tell anybody what I did wrong. What rally specifically do I get to peacefully protest?”
