SWAT Raids For Censorship

From George Will’s column:

The early-morning paramilitary-style raids on citizens’ homes were conducted by law enforcement officers, sometimes wearing bulletproof vests and lugging battering rams, pounding on doors and issuing threats. Spouses were separated as the police seized computers, including those of children still in pajamas. Clothes drawers, including the children’s, were ransacked, cellphones were confiscated and the citizens were told that it would be a crime to tell anyone of the raids.

To bust out the paramilitary-style raids, law enforcement must have been dealing with violent criminals, or domestic abusers, or maybe terrorists? Try Wisconsin conservative activists. And who authorized the raid?

According to several published reports, Chisholm told subordinates that his wife, a teachers union shop steward at her school, is anguished by her detestation of Walker’s restrictions on government employee unions, so Chisholm considers it his duty to help defeat Walker.

“Chisholm” is Milwaukee County’s Democratic DA John Chisholm. “Walker” is Governor Scott Walker.

Note to anti-Citizens United activists: violent police raids are the natural means to justify your ends. Is this the America you really support? Because this could easily happen to you someday.
