“America is about to be Wisconsinized…”
Historian and author Paul Buhle (It Started in Wisconsin) links the 2011 Wisconsin Uprising and subsequent forcible implementation of Governor Scott Walker’s radical Republican agenda to our current national nightmare in his review of Divided We Fall at Portside.org. America, Buhle says, is about to be “Wisconsinized.”
For more of Paul Buhle, check out the anthology of essays, It Started in Wisconsin, that he edited together with his wife Mary Jo. Several essays in the volume are by people featured in our movie, such as labor organizer Charity Schmidt, former editor of The Progressive Magazine and current executive director of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign Matt Rothschild, and CEO of Workers Independent News Frank Emspak.
