State of Wisconsin Archives: on Foreign Policy


Scott Walker: Terrorists are cowards who are afraid of freedom

Last week, innocent people were targeted in France by terrorists [killing staff of Charlie Hebdo, a political news magazine which had run cartoons mocking Mohammed]. These cowards are not symbols of confidence. They are overwhelmed by fear. They are afraid of freedom.

They are afraid of those who have the freedom of the press. They are afraid of freedom of speech. They are afraid of freedom of religion. Tonight, we must stand together--Democrat and Republican--and denounce those who wish to threaten freedom anywhere in this world. We need to proclaim that an attack against freedom-loving people anywhere is an attack against us all. And we will not allow it. When we take a stand, we will make it easier to work for freedom and prosperity--right here in Wisconsin.

Candidate John Schiess says the last time he ran for US Senate was 28 years ago. "And my platform hasn't changed--get rid of federal reserve system and department of education and get rid of the communist United Nations, it's a trojan horse on our soil," said Schiess.
