Time to fact check Charlie Sykes.
Yes, we know that Sykes and his Right Wisconsin minions are on a Never Trump (AKA Always Hillary) mission.
I tuned in to Sykes' radio program this morning to hear his interview with Mike Pence. After, Sykes discussed Paul Ryan's primary race with Paul Nehlen. In the process, he bashed Drudge, Breitbart, Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, and others.
First, I wholeheartedly support Paul Ryan and will be happy when he wins tomorrow as he undoubtedly will.
Now, back to Sykes and his flat-out false statement about Breitbart.
Sykes was whining about figures in the national conservative media, including Breitbart.
Sykes said that they don't understand Wisconsin, that they "had absolutely zip to do with the Republican revolution in Wisconsin." He said they were "absolutely nowhere during the recall elections." He said they "never lifted a finger for Scott Walker."
That is BS.
Andrew Breitbart most definitely covered the struggle in Wisconsin in 2011. He came to Madison and spoke at rallies and did exposés on the Leftist protesters. Sarah Palin came to Madison in 2011. Certainly, Drudge posted links to stories about the war on Scott Walker.
From a previous post:
Here in Wisconsin, we all remember the insanity of early 2011. Breitbart was here, helping us fight to save our state.Bottom line: Sykes is wrong. PANTS ON FIRE wrong. The people he now maligns were a part of the Wisconsin Republican revolution.
When doctors in Madison were handing out fraudulent medical excuses to teachers and others skipping work to protest Gov. Scott Walker's reforms, Breitbart was there. He had no problem being diagnosed with "Walker pneumonia."
Here's Breitbart at a Tea Party rally in Madison, February 19, 2011:
He was passionate. He was fully committed to the cause. His enthusiasm and tenacity was inspiring. He was funny.
Here's video of Breitbart's remarks while introducing Sarah Palin at a Tea Party rally in Madison, April 16, 2011:
He was not afraid to call out the divisive, pro-union protesters there on the periphery of the gathering as lying, rude, disrespectful people. Breitbart told them to "go to hell." He defended the courageous Sarah Palin for her effectiveness in calling out the "community organizer-in-chief, Barack Obama."
And here's Andrew Breitbart's speech at CPAC, February 11, 2012:
One of my favorite lines: "Everything has changed, everything has changed in the last few years. Conservatives used to take it and we're not taking it anymore."
Breitbart was here, as were others. They brought national attention to our fight against the Leftists occupying Madison.
Sykes and his Right Wisconsin crew need to be careful. Their credibility is at risk. They are not allowed to rewrite history.
I'll offer specifics of the Sykes interview with Mike Pence later.
I couldn't wait to correct the falsehoods being spread by Sykes on WTMJ. His statements needed to be refuted immediately.
