The major media was stunned as the cameras picked up protestors in Madison, Wisconsin yesterday carrying signs and shouting, "Allah is great! Allah is great!" It seemed the world had gone crazy!

A commentator at MSNBC blurted into his microphone, "Not here! Not in the heartland! Not in Madison, Wisconsin!"

As viewers nationwide reacted in disgust and started to turn on the protesting school teachers, policemen, fireman, and other state employees, the major networks suddenly stopped the coverage. A bewildered public wondered why Fox News and conservative talk radio continued the story line as the top news of the day. An enterprising reporter from MSNBC cracked the mystery. It was all a hoax!

The protesters in Wisconsin were not natives of the state or this country but former secret police from the Mubarak regime in Egypt and had been hired by the Koch brothers and Fox News to discredit the protests.

Most in the news media were bewildered by the fact the Koch's and Fox News thought they could get away with such a stunt.

A spokesman from Fox stated: "I guess us, if anybody, knows who our viewers are! We stand by our story and the effort to transform our country into a caliphate! No question about it, the Boogeyman has arrived. It is time to use our second amendment rights!" Glenn Beck said on his morning show, "They're here! They're here! Get to your cellars!"

As Governor Scott Walker prepared to call out the National Guard with the possible use of tear gas, mace, clubs, and live ammunition if necessary on the citizens of this heartland state, a member of SEIU cornered one of the protesters and asked if he was a citizen of the United States.

"No, no way," the protester said in broken English. "Hired for job. Big money! Important people! Maybe stay here. Can you tell me something?"

"What?," said the union steward.

"Which way, McDonalds and Wal-Mart?"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
