Madison WI marches in lockstep to identity politics

Just ask a guilty white Madison liberal to apologize.
They will before asking “what for?”

A fiery meteor is headed for Earth. The Washington Post headlines, “Sources say world to end; Congress to recess.” The Wall Street Journal: “World to End; Stock Market Plunges.” USA Today: “IT’S OVER! (No weather map today).” New York Times: “World to end; women and minorities hardest hit.”

A foolish Madison liberal named Beth Harper unwittingly recycled that old joke in her letter in the current Isthmus weekly newspaper:

Every time Dave Cieslewicz complains about “identity politics,” I wonder what political topics he thinks are NOT affected by one’s race, gender, sexual orientation, ability status, or other important aspects of identity. Economics? Environment? Public safety? Tell that to … communities of color who are disproportionately hurt by air pollution and toxic waste.

Huh? More air pollution in Meadowood than in Orchard Ridge? No garbage pick-up on Badger Road? Fast forward to an arresting essay on the front page of Sunday’s New York Times opinion section. Author Kwame Anthony Appiah gives dispensation to the worried liberal trapped in the congealing amber of identity politics.

Not every opinion needs to be underwritten by your race or gender or other social identity.“Go Ahead, Speak For Yourself.

Kwame Anthony Appiah is a professor of philosophy who is coming out with a book The Lies That Bind: Rethinking Identity. He writes:

The very word “identity” points toward the trouble: It comes from the Latin idem, meaning “the same.” Because members of a given identity group have experiences that depend on a host of other social factors, they’re not the same.

Here’s Chris Rock, talking about his life in an affluent New Jersey suburb: “As a black man, I’m against the cops, but as a man with property, well, I need the cops. If someone steals something, I can’t call the Crips!”

 

All White People are alike

The school to stupidity pipeline

Our Madison school board is living the lie of identity politics. Because a noisy group billing itself as the Freedom Inc. Youth Squad claims that police in schools creates something called the “school to prison pipeline” the guilty white liberals dominating the ad hoc committee on EROs kowtows to the race shaming. 

Does Freedom Inc. speak for all minority families? Not even for the Urban League or the NAACP.  Where is the ad hoc committee’s empirical evidence that students of color are being disciplined for chewing gym in the hallway while white students are given a free pass to beat on minorities? That evidence does not exist.

Or the Gay Pride Parade disinviting the cops. For the identity politician, every day is the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, or the Stonewall Riots in Greenwich Village, or Diary of a Mad Housewife.

“Our community is facing complex, unprecedented times, where power is a fleeting commodity for our most vulnerable members, especially queer and transgender persons of color,” OutReach board president Michael Ruiz said. …

“Those whose voices are silenced due to gender and sexual orientation, as well as the intersections of race, class, ethnicity, gender, ability, immigration status, age, and lack of institutional power, need us to amplify their voices,” Ruiz continued.

Disinviting the cops is going to amplify voices? He doesn’t think there are any women, LBGTs, or racial minorities on the cop squad?

Appoint a token conservative, be amazed!

Back to Cieslewicz. He is one of the very few Democrats who has taken on identity politics (while, lamentably, holding his tongue on cops in schools).  The former mayor writes:

The essence of being a liberal is to be open to different ideas and perspectives — ironically, even conservative ones. So, I would like to see at least one strong, articulate classic conservative in the [mayoral] race. Someone who would make a principled and impassioned case for smaller government, less regulation and more personal freedom.

ExplodingHeadSmallSo would we, not that such a dream candidate could get elected in The Emerald City. But Dave C. was mayor for two terms; don’t recall him appointing any conservatives to the myriad citizen commissions that clutter city government. 

We know because your intrepid Squire donated $1 to Mayor Dave’s re-election campaign with the expected quid pro quo that this David would be appointed to something juicy. Our $1 bribe (“more where that came from”) was refunded in the return mail.

In any case, we’ve added “appoint philosophical diversity” to The Policy Werkes’ recommendations to the Task Force on Government Structure.  Don’t worry, they won’t prevail but shouldn’t policy makers at least be exposed to a different viewpoint? An opinion the majority here in The Emerald City likely has never heard expressed? 

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Can you think of anything more racist than assuming that all black/Asians/hispanics/whites/disabled/LBGT think alike?

    Were it not for Identity Politics Lefty, a one trick gelding in a barn no one cleans, wouldn’t have any politics at all.

    Look no further than the nearly bankrupt DNC 17 victimhoodie groups.

    (bolds mine throughout)
    The latest iteration (Chair Tommy Perez) of the Brain Trust of a cascading failure better known as the nearly bankrupt DNC waxes hysterically philosophical: “the party needs to go to the suburbs, the exurbs and rural America, and talk to people.”

    Yet this same party: “Scroll down the Democrats’ home page and you’ll find a dull party platform with 93 bullet points and a list of links entitled ‘People.’ Each link leads to a subgroup: Women. Hispanics. LGBT people. ‘Ethnic Americans.’ There are 17 different groups, and a different message tailored for each.”

    My best sense tells me these tailored messages can be boiled down to demographic specific more More MORE high quality/quantity free s#!t.

    That’s a lotta groups, am I right? Think that 17 includes the White working class, or donut makers?

    Me either, but marvelously consistent, am I right?

    One of the myriad lessons Lefty refuses to learn? You’s don’t get equal rights until you’s give up you’s special rights

      Fortunately, the white working class isn’t as dumb as Dems think. They know perfectly well they were abandoned for decades while Dems fawned over every minority group under the sun (including several they invented themselves) while morphing into the party of arrogant coastal elites.

    I’m old enough to remember when a cop could be fired on the spot for being gay (or just rumored to be so). Obviously this means nothing to the arrogant, morally bankrupt hypocrites at OutReach, who loudly proclaim their devotion to “inclusivity” while cheerfully excluding anyone they deem unworthy. (I wonder whether they would allow a group called ‘Gays for Trump’ to join in their little love-fest–something tells me no. Presumably any cop who chooses to march in the Pride Parade is either gay or gay-friendly. How exactly do they pose a threat to other marchers? It was reported in the WI SJ that armed, uniformed police will be stationed along the parade route to provide security and crowd control. I suggest these officers call in sick on that day and let’s see how safe the sanctimonious little pricks at OutReach feel then.

          Good one! Just like milk comes from the store, Soglin’s only qu’ils mangent de la brioche idea of Supper Club is as a Capital Brewery lager offering.

          I’d LUV to see Hizzoner’s pompous smile get wiped from his smug puss when he walked into the Kimball Inn or the Bell Chalet in Hurley expecting them to be as welcoming as Stalzy’s, the Old Fashioned, or the Great Dane.

          Hurley’s Iron Horse Inn & the Full Moon Saloon, or the Saxon Pub in lovely downtown Saxon? Fuggeddaboudit!!

          He claims the rest of the state OWES Madison, am I right? Ask him to travel north of Hwy 64 or Hwy 29, heck Hwy 10 or Hwy 54 even, and see what they have to say.

    By the power invested in the Squire by the Treaty of Locarno and a steady Diet of Worms I have arbitrarily and indiscriminately taken a weed cutter to the overgrown thicket of comments on this blogge. To the prohibition on vile language and ad hominem attacks we now ban tit for tat, so are you, and you’re another.

    One fun Twitter tidbit from last night’s election (hat tip @_hollister_99)
    Republicans turned out a HIGHER % of voters than they did in 2014, and even more so than Democrats

    -Republicans share of the vote went up from 43.5% to 45.6% since 2014, while Democrats *decreased* from 56.5% to 53.7%

      that was 2014. the Star Tribune wrote; voter turnout highest since’02. but; 456,007 gop votes for gov. vs 537,840 Dem votes in an 8 way race. Leads one to assume that the Dems were more engaged in this race.

        ” Leads one to assume that the Dems were more engaged in this race.”

        Have they…um…smoothed-n-adjusted for the Cemetery Vote and all the IL “volunteer motor voters” that Scottie Foval bussed in, and that Lefty has been bussing in for over half a century?

        The talented, albeit big-mouthed, former DNC employee Foval:

        (bolds/caps mine throuout)
        “It’s a very easy thing for Republicans to say they’re bussing people in. Well you know what? We’ve been bussing people in to deal with you f***in’ @$$holes for fifty years and WE’RE NOT GOING TO STOP NOW. WE’RE JUST GOING TO FIND A DIFFERENT WAY TO DO IT.

        “I think backwards from how they would prosecute if they could, and then try to build out the method to avoid that,” (Foval) says about organizing voter fraud by bringing people from state to state to vote illegally. “Let’s just say, in theory, if a major investigation came up of major vote fraud that way, how would they prove it? And who would they charge? Are they going to charge each individual with voter fraud? Or are they going to go after the facilitator for conspiracy, which they could prove? It’s one thing if all these people drive up in their personal cars. If there’s a bus involved, that changes the dynamic… You can prove conspiracy if there’s a bus, but if there are cars, it is much harder to prove.”

        Voter fraud? there ain’t no stinkin’ voter fraud!

          Soooo, Americans United for Change and Democracy Partners summarily fired his sorry @$$ for “deceptively edited videos”?

          Got it!

          Another selectively edited, I mean, verbatim quote from Scottie (a local boy!): “It doesn’t matter what the friggin’ legal and ethics people say, we need to win this motherfucker.”

          Taken out of context?

          I give you credit for having a modicum of synaptic connectivity, but this isn’t like yer heroines Stormy-n-Omarosa claiming to have something.

          These are verbatim quotes he spake while he was being recorded…as in, they’re ON TAPEFULL STOP!!

          Watch the video (starts ~ 40 seconds) and then report back to us that you don’t believe yer lyin’ eyes OR yer lyin’ ears.

          Ah Lefty; so MUCH hypocrisy, so little time!
