Songwriter and musician Scott Walker has died. He was 76 years old. While the music world mourns, some on the left couldn’t help themselves when they wished his namesake, former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, had passed away instead.
Not surprisingly, they took to Twitter to see if they could outdo each other with their comments. Walker Derangement Syndrome was on full display:
Can’t believe God killed the wrong Scott Walker https://t.co/ixWt9VhnKI

Anyway the wrong Scott Walker died, it should’ve been that treacherous asshole Wisconsinite who has literally confessed to eating ham sandwiches every day his entire life & only existed in public life to make other people suffer.

If they rewrote Twin Peaks to have Mr. C be the hero and Dougy the villain, that’s the difference between Scott Walker the musician and Scott Walker the politician. The wrong one died. Listen to 3, 4, Climate of Hunter, and/or The Drift. Incredible music. RIP https://t.co/fYD1hKR1bZ
