It became apparent Monday that union thuggery is alive and well in the state of Wisconsin after the son of Gov. Scott Walker tweeted a photo showing union protesters massing outside the home where his grandparents are living.
Walker’s tough stance against unions has landed him in the national hot seat and with his presidential aspirations on his mind, unions are taking the fight to him – and his elderly parents.
Walker’s son Alex, posted this photo of the Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association gathered outside Walker’s parents’ home – despite the bitter cold.
The picture was noticed by many on Twitter.
They’re protesting out front of our home. Who lives there you might ask? My grandma & grandpa. Unbelievable. pic.twitter.com/j7PG9zM6RS

The political stunt looked to be a big backfire as people began to weigh in on the protest…
Yep, they stepped in it again. MT @flyoverangel Thank goodness they’re harrasing the elderly, that’ll make ppl super sympathetic. — Jim from Wisconsin™ (@wijim500) February 17, 2015
@The_Alex_Walker It takes a special kind of POS to do something like that. Looks like WI has no shortage of them. #Walker2016

Here’s a little piece of protesting 101 advice: Don’t pick on babies, puppies, or the elderly. But apparently the MTEA union branch didn’t get that memo.

In the end, it doesn’t matter what sparked the sudden union fury. Picking on the elderly is something you just don’t do.
Thanks to the latest union stunt, the Walkers received a lot of support and free publicity.
@The_Alex_Walker @teaparty321 Must be doing something right to draw that much attention from the Left! Keep on the good fight!
