Gov. Walker Urged To Use ‘False Flag’ Operation During Union Protests
Sinister minds were in over-drive during the chaotic weeks when collective bargaining rights were on the chopping block at the Wisconsin State Capitol.
While there were wild speculations about the lengths Republicans would go to make the public sympathetic to their cause, no one could have predicted that an idea relating to violence would be sent to Governor Walker from a deputy prosecutor in Indiana. A fellow Republican, it should be noted.
The email came to Gov. Scott Walker from the personal account of a deputy prosecutor and Republican activist in Indiana.
After praise for Walker, the email — sent Feb. 19, during union demonstrations against Walker’s budget repair bill — then took a darker turn. It suggested that the situation in Wisconsin presented “a good opportunity for what’s called a ‘false flag’ operation.”
“If you could employ an associate who pretends to be sympathetic to the unions’ cause to physically attack you (or even use a firearm against you), you could discredit the unions,” the email said.
“Currently, the media is painting the union protest as a democratic uprising and failing to mention the role of the DNC and umbrella union organizations in the protest. Employing a false flag operation would assist in undercutting any support that the media may be creating in favor of the unions. God bless, Carlos F. Lam.”
