Union supporters and liberal noisemakers hoisted middle fingers and drowned out her supporters during her talk at a tea party rally at the State Capitol in Madison, Wis., on Saturday.
The anti-Palin crowd seemed to make up the majority of the estimated 6,500 attendees of the event in the liberal college town, according to CBS News
and Human Events.
Palin praised those in the crowd who had faced "death threats and thug tactics" in their support of Wis. Gov. Scott Walker's bill to end collective bargaining for state workers. "You held your ground, your governor did the right thing, and you won," she said.
The former union employee and potential 2012 presidential contender defended Walker’s actions: "He's not trying to hurt union members. Hey, folks, he's trying to save your jobs and your pensions!"
