The Democrats’ ‘Fighting dirty’ is losing voters
The Capital Times is desperate to smear nurse and working mother Leah Vukmir as a “dishonest … career politician” because the Republican candidate for Senate is hitting incumbent Tammy Baldwin where it hurts: her starring role in the Act 10 intifada of 2011. (“Working mother demeaned.”)
The weeks-long takeover of the Wisconsin state capitol seven years ago by well compensated government employees and their paymasters in the Democrat(ic) party resonates with voters today as they marvel at the Left’s nationwide hissy fit over the Kavanaugh appointment.
Storming the Supreme Court building, disrupting the U.S. Senate chamber during the roll call vote Saturday, occupying Senate office buildings, and harassing elected officials — sound familiar, Wisconsin? Vukmir reminds:
What we’re seeing today with the Kavanaugh nomination are the same intimidation schemes those on the left implements whenever their ideas don’t win at the ballot box.
The Kavanaugh irruption caps two years of pussy hats, Antifa thuggery, street blockades, and other Resistance tomfoolery. All a turn-off to voters in the middle.
In today’s Wall Street Journal, Daniel Henninger marvels at Donald Trump’s “luck in attracting self-destructive opponents.” The Democrats’ last presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton, told CNN:
I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.
(As her husband Bill once said after a sexual conquest, “better put ice on that.”) Barack Obama’s first attorney general also sounds, well, similarly desperate.
Michele [Obama] always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No no! When they go low, we kick them.
U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-LA, responded,
At a time when Republicans are being shot, stabbed, doxxed, beaten, mailed powder, run out of restaurants, and sent death threats, Hillary Clinton urges Democrats to be even more uncivil. What an irresponsible statement. Every Democrat should denounce. pic.twitter.com/TdEmISWnzM
Time to fight dirty
The Capital Times cannot denounce what it encourages. It is forced to defend the Act 10 shenanigans because it was a co-conspirator. Associate editor John Nichols held the bullhorn (borrowed from the Socialist Workers Party) for Tammy as she exhorted the protestors in the Capitol rotunda. That’s when he wasn’t rousing the rabble in his own voice or on the printed page.
It is true that nobody died or was injured in the Act 10 protests. (Did Leah say different?) Let us also stipulate that:
- The overnight, weeks-long occupation of the Capitol was illegal.
- Madison teachers illegally walked off the job, shutting down school for a full week.
- Democrats in the state senate skedaddled to Illinois rather than do their jobs in Madison.
These were glory days of Segway Boy, Thistle padlocking herself to a Capitol stairway bannister, and Pink Dress Guy tossing a beer into the face of a legislator. (Oh, the memories!) Recall (if you’ll pardon the expression) that protestors:
- Harassed Sen. Glenn Grothman.
- Shut down the M&I Bank on the Square.
- Disrupted a Special Olympics award ceremony.
- Shouted obscenities at Sarah Palin and the teenage girl who spoke at a counter rally.
- Threatened to dress out Gov. Walker’s wife “like a deer.”
No wonder President Obama kept his distance!
You may remember the Vukmir ad recounting her own death threats, a handgun for self-defense near at hand. YOU try getting death threats.
- All of which re-elected Scott Walker. Twice.
- All of which elected an even more-Republican legislature. Twice.
- All of which gave Donald Trump the state’s first electoral votes given a Republican since 1984.
Civility is so … Republican
The Capital Times is heavily invested in the politics of confrontation and disruption, the raised fist, heckler’s veto, and illegal occupation. Even the shutdown of the overwhelmingly liberal Dane County Board last November drew no rebuke from “Your Progressive Voice.” Its identity politics heroes from Progressive Dane, Black Lives Matter, and the International Socialists harass parents at school board meetings, play the race card, believe all women (except Paula Jones) — even Tawana Brawley.
Two days after Independence Day, the editor emeritus of The Capital Times published a column that approved harassing opposing viewpoints.
“Change-makers know civility isn’t all it’s cracked up to be,” editor emeritus Dave Zweifel wrote about the Hard Left’s new playbook Time to Fight Dirty.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Now that the Madison madness has gone nationwide, voters are appalled and Resistance apologists are (wait for it!) desperate!
“The Kavanaugh irruption caps two years of pussy hats, Antifa thuggery, street blockades, and other Resistance tomfoolery. All a turn-off to voters in the middle.”
Tomfoolery = silliness · clowning · pranks · buffoonery · horseplay · mischief · foolishness · stupidity · shenanigans · monkey tricks.
The radical Left takes their tomfoolery a shade too seriously.
FBI director Wray admitted today in a senate hearing that the WH purposely limited their investigation.

Lefty to call him a sell-out, an Uncle Tom, a House N****r, and far worse in 5…4…3…
Ah Lefty; so MUCH hypocrisy, so little time!
I love how they claim that NOW they’re going to fight dirty. As if they have been wearing kid gloves all these years.
Oh please listen to Mad Maxine and impeach the president.
Ah, the halcyon days of yore; Lefties singalonging off tune in The Key Of Me (H/T @Norwood44) at the State Capitol.
I nicknamed them The Rotundas for obvious reasons.
I tired to find that hilarious picture of the fat blob of a Union guy stretched out sleeping on a bench in the Capitol Building; anyone else?
Protesting coddled privilege is energy sapping, especially for spongy, corpulent endomorphs not given to such exertion.
Huh, catching Z’s while others pick up the slack.
Union Proud/Union Strong! He must’ve thought he was at work.
In all fairness, despite being a sack of garbage, Holder’s comments have been spun pretty hard. However, ever since the Trump candidacy we’ve seen a Democrats and their friends in the media entirely happy with political violence as long as it’s their side dishing it out. Remember when crowds of lefties attacking Trump rally attendees became “Trump rallies cause violence.”? Remember when violent mobs beat and pepper sprayed people seeing a conservative speaking in Berkeley while rioting through the town and it was framed as no big deal? Now imagine a right wing mob attacking attendees at a Bernie rally, or kicking the crap out of pussy hat marchers; the hysteria would be never ending.
The left is normalizing political violence. Since the media are their allies, there is no downside for them. When they decided they were going use violence to suppress free speech in Charolettesville and, shocker, it devolved into violence, they were able spin it into a noble cause. The reality is they have established a precedent that they can control access to the public square through violence. I know everyone gets squeamish about Charolettesville because “OMG Nazis!”, but have you noticed that everyone is a Nazi, fascist, or white-supremacist these days?
Political violence never ends well. Perhaps they can reflect upon this while lining up for humanitarian rations in a Canadian refugee camp.
Dear Eric Holder, how many feet have you got? Me too.
When WE go low? Remember how the first Obama term was so abysmal they had to resort to ‘Mitt Romney is a felonious tax cheat who wars on women, wants to abolish abortion, doesn’t mind the death of his employees spouses while so hating his dogs he put one on the roof of his car……’
It is pretty amusing that anyone on this site, including the squire, would complain about the lack civility of the left/progressives/liberals. And all the while chanting, “lock her up”, or wondering why protests are allowed. To quote one of your team captains, ” so MUCH hypocrisy, so little time!”.
Sheesh! If yer equating ” ‘lock her up’, or wondering why protests are allowed” to the violent, orchestrated “I WILL LITERALLY PAY SOMEONE TO KILL TRUMP” crap Lefty’s pulling, youse need to get yer empty, bald head examined!!!
”Below is a compilation of 89 times someone encouraged the murder of Donald Trump or said they’d do it themselves on Twitter for the month of March.”
That’s March of 2106!!! 2 1/2 freakin’ years ago!
Your people, your party, your flailing EPIC FAIL ideology!
OWN YOU’S USELESS SELVES, LEFTIES!!!
Ah Lefty; so MUCH despair, so little time!
March 2106. 21/2 years ago. So you believe it’s now 2108. Is it time that someone takes your car keys away?
What an imbecile thinks was posted:
“21/2>/b> years ago.” (bold mine)
What WAS posted:
“2 1/2 freakin’ years ago! (bold mine)
Is there someone that can read for @richard lesiak, he’s very STOOPID and lacks that ability himself!
YOU POSTED MARCH OF 2106. CAPS ARE MINE. READ YOUR OWN POST. AND DON’T CALL ME OR ANYONE ELSE ON THIS BLOG THAT THEY ARE STUPID! SINCE YOU CAN’T EVEN SPELL IT.
”AND DON’T CALL ME OR ANYONE ELSE ON THIS BLOG THAT THEY ARE STUPID!”
There’s really no other appropriate reference for anyone with such poor sentence structuring and abysmal word usage.
Oy! And if that were yer only linguistic shortcoming.
IN ADDITION, the Humble Squire has to correct youse how many times, along with The Gotch, on proper contraction (or lack thereof)?
Stupid is reserved for those who come by it naturally. Youse take it to an entirely different level and are, thus, truly deserving of a…um…special category all yer own.
One youse confirm every time youse post.
21/2>/b>(q-z) + (B+S)=3,000,000,000 Walker’s state surplus x mileage + good weather.
watching trump sitting in the oval office silently listening to K. West rant, rave, swear, etc. was hilarious. Then talk about civility. Blaska loves to put up that photo of Waters. Put up a few of a trump rally. The press is the enemy, I’ll pay your legal bills if you beat up that guy. On and on. Then bitch that the Dems aren’t being polite.
Wrong, as usual.
The MOST hilarious part was Lefty taking the low road…AGAIN (must be the only one they know) and calling a Black man that leaves the Lefty raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaacist Plantation and thinks for himself a “Token Negroe” that “can’t read,” and is mentally infirm.
The democrat Party takes a page from their historically Go-To playbook position of raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaacism, riiiiiight back to their mainstays of the Klan and Jim Crow.
Herschel Walker, reportedly Black himself, wasn’t pleased:
Herschel Walker calls for CNN to fire Don Lemon over ‘racist’ Kanye West criticism
Ranting, raving and cussin’ in front of the president for 10 min. while trump sat there like a dumbass. That was funny.
So chanting is uncivil? Or only when it’s directed at the left? “Hey, hey/ Ho ho/ Kavanaugh has got to go.” Uncivil? No, a stirring example of women’s empowerment. “Ah, Lefty. So MUCH hypocrisy, so little time.”
Don’t think Lazy Ack has watched any Trump rallies. If so, he would be scared for Dems with the amount of people who show up everywhere he goes. And there are always overflow crowds. Erie PA not down south, mind you. Where is this enthusiasm on the Dem side? Bill and Hillary’s book tour???
Where is Blue Wave Baldwin? Where is one affirmative reason to vote Democrat?
Is that a rhetorical question.
Faux News even gave up broadcasting them. After every one of them they have to spin some tale to cover his lies. It’s all fake; just like the pic’s of the bigliest crowds in history when he was sworn in.
“Faux News even gave up broadcasting them.”
THIS from the Mensan Brain Trustee that told us that the ABA had yanked their endorsement of Justice Kavanaugh.
@richard lesiak, how’d that turn out for ya again? I don’t recall…
they did, but the corrupt gop pushed him through. 50-48. RBG was 96-3. and she can bench-press more than gotch too.
Scott Wagner, GOP candidate for PA governor, addressing his opponent Gov. Tom Wolf, ” .. because I’m going to stomp all over your face with golf spikes”. From Fox News.
So much hypocrisy, soooo little time.
What no answer to OB’s post about a repuklican stomping faces? And you ask why? Why you didn’t hear about it? Because the State Dept. sent a letter to Grassley in sept. and he sat on it until just now. That’s why. The State Dept doesn’t make those announcements. Dig into the two brain cells you have left and you’ll remember that in 2016 she was investigated, stood up to 11 hours of questions and Harold Gowdey filed no charges. Your question should be why Grassley didn’t release the letter when he received it. He asked for it in the first place. Smoke-screen?????
Poor @richard lesiak, sad @richard lesiak, eminently ButtHurt @richard lesiak;
“the State Dept. sent a letter to Grassley in sept. and he sat on it until just now.”
September 21st to be exact, during which time the honorable Senator Grassley was busy confirming the epically qualified Justice Kavanaugh against Lefty’s feebly futile 11th hour BS FEST.
So yer huffin’-n-puffin’ yer concave chest saying that something not divulged for three weeks is “sitting on it?”
If so, what does that make DiFi SITTING ON Felony Fibbin’ Ford’s letter for THREE FREAKIN’ MONTHS? Do the math, that’s FOUR TIMES LONGER.
That means widdle @richard lesiak should be four times as mad, otherwise he looks like a real real foolish hypocrite!
“DiFi” didn’t release anything because Ford asked her not too. Grassley sat on this info for one of two reasons. Trying to deflect what a political hack he is, or he is a lazy senile old man who forgot he had it. Besides that; SO WHAT! They have no more use for the clearances. Poor gootchie, sad gootchie, butt head gootchie. Half the people in trump’s WH can’t get security clearances because they are a bunch of corrupt liars. When I saw that toilet clip I thought of Vukmir. The voters aren’t as STOOOOOOOPPPPPIIIDDDD as you. They are not going to elect someone who only works for the NRA and is on a short leash from ALEC. Ahhhh; the gop. I love the smell of fear of indictments in the morning. Don’t You? Am I right?
” ‘DiFi’ didn’t release anything because Ford asked her not too.”
Yet it got leaked, AGAINST_HER_WISHES, because, like, you know, sacrifices have to made to bolster a LOSING ideology and the democrat Party that embraces it.
“I love the smell of fear of indictments in the morning.”
You got THAT right, just as soon as the fast-approaching investigation of the pitiable DiFi and her shyster charges wraps up.
Think that’ll get her cryin’…<b?AGAIN…like Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer?
Make sure youse watch the ad for our Thrice-Elected Governor Scott Walker before youse watch the video.
Ah Lefty; so MUCH desperation, so little time!
