Governor Scott Walker addresses union protests and evolutionPosted by Lawrence Lease on February 18, 2015
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker appeared on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File” on Tuesday addressing the recent union protests that took place outside his parents home earlier in the week calling it a personal attack.
More than 100 education union members were protesting Walker’s budget proposal, which according to the Union members would hurt public schools and universities. They descended on the home, which is owned by Governor Walker and chanted slogans but remained calm throughout the protest.
On Tuesday, he said in the end the protest backfires in the end and that “Taking it to someone’s home, particularly with elderly parents, that takes it too far.”
On Tuesday, he also addressed his critics who attack him for not graduating college. One of his major critics is former DNC chairman Howard Dean, who chided that if Walker ran for office, he would be the first “executive” in generations to not hold a college degree. Walker fought back saying he would rather have a fighter who has proven he can take on big government and win. Walker addressed his recent controversy in London, in which he refused to answer questions regarding evolution. “I think God created the earth,” he told Kelly, but added, “I think science and my faith aren’t incompatible.”
The protest took place in Wauwatosa earlier in the week.
