Scott Walker Supporter Releases ‘Stand With Governor Walker’ Ballad

An apparent supporter of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has recorded a hymn of sorts to lift up the embattled Republican governor facing recall. Titled “Stand With Governor Walker,” the song features soaring melodies and balladic piano riffs.

Here are the lyrics for the refrain:

We will stand with Governor Walker.
Because he does what he says; not just a big fancy talker.
We will stand with Governor Walker.
We got to keep moving ahead, all the way, with Governor Walker.
Oh no we can’t go back again.
We got to keep moving ahead with Governor Walker.
Mr. Scott Walker, our Wisconsin Governor.

It appears the songwriter, Glen Shulfer, also released a similar tune during the heat of the Madison protests. And it doesn’t seem to be a parody or satire. That song, titled “Union Man,” criticizes the protesters rallying against Walker’s efforts to curtail collective bargaining for public unions in the state. In an interview with a local radio station, Shulfer recounts being heckled at the Capitol protests. Shulfer did not respond to TPM’s request for comment.

Listen to his newest song below:

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
