Shocking photos from Wisconsin protests [SLIDESHOW]

If you haven’t made it to this week’s Wisconsin political rallies, you’re sparing yourself from being surrounded by hate-filled messages, signs, posters, and vitriol.

Public-sector employee protests at Wisconsin’s capitol continued Friday over Gov. Scott Walker’s proposed budget-repair bill that would cut public employee union collective bargaining rights and have them contribute to pensions and health care. Hundreds of protesters chanted “kill the bill” as they waved around these posters.

Courtesy of blog Director Blue, here are some snapshots of the picketers’ most scathing and horrific signs, many of which call for “reloading” on Walker and liken him to Adolf Hilter and former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak.

  • Attack in response to government attacks?
  • These comparisons have become highly unoriginal.
  • Again with the Hilter references.
  • if you're going to make this kind of sign, you may as well spell out the expletive. Just sayin.'
  • Many would say this is unwarranted.
  • Excuse me, ma'am? Hitler and Walker were born 78 years apart. Hitler died before the birth of Walker. Next time, at least liken Walker to someone from his generation.
  • You forgot to add a question mark, bro.
  • Gross.
  • Don’t retreat, reload on Walker?
  • Well, if Justin Bieber says it...
  • ‘One down, one to go.’ How nice.
