This is what I’m up against, folks

Social justice warrior issues warning to Blaska:

“Someone … should ask him not to ‘put his life on the line’ by running for school board. [that] his life is not worth putting in jeopardy.” 


Shadayra Kilfoy-Flores


Shadayra Kilfoy-Flores is a member of the anti-cop Community Response Team that has been hounding Police Chief Mike Koval for the last five years.  Amelia Royko Maurer is its leader. Kilfoy-Flores joined with Sharon Irwin in hauling the chief before the Police & Fire Commission. (The city wound up paying Koval’s legal bills.) CRT reflexively opposes additional police officers, the MidTown police station, and all things cop. Kilfoy-Flores and CRT mainstay Nino Rodriguez are regulars supporting Freedom Inc.’s disruption of Madison school board meetings.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Learn to spell, Shadayra. It’s Blaska.

      Teaching lefty political hacks to be factually accurate in their rhetoric is obviously not part of the Progressive think tank indoctrination. Progressives have been taught to just spew whatever nonsense they can dream up (it’s called trolling) regardless of facts and accuracy, some ignorant fools will believe it and that’s the only thing that counts to them. It’s all unethical ends justifies the means propaganda coming from morally bankrupt Progressives.

    Intimidation, violence, heckler’s veto, are implemented by Antifa, Freedom Inc. and Shadayra Kilfoy-Flores because all are literally afraid of differing opinions. These people must be terribly insecure about their ability to persuade or they would intellectually engage instead of resorting to Brownshirt tactics. These folks are creating some serious bad karma. Karma has no deadline.

    Mr. Balaska,
    Kilfoy-Flores fears you, frightened by the prospect of a single alternative perspective being heard/considered by the school board. She is obsessed with you Dave and her anxiety likely keeps her up at night. You be livin in her head rent-free.

    We are told to be meek by our leaders, but guess what we can’t be controlled by the status quo.
    Our kids our gente are here to stay, whey! Si I’ve been trolled even doxed! But I’m still alive and as they are, this culture war is difficult and I’m not going to stand by and watch My friend Shadayra Kilfoy-Flores be bullied by David Blaska A political blogger, whose friends made threats to her, after his post.

    She quoted him and then David framed it as if she was threatening him. David you have allowed this to happen on your website and branding. You will not silence women of color nor perpetuate violence against them. Con el poder de la Virgincita te mando a la chingada!

    Shadayra Kilfoy-Flores posted on The All-New Mitch Henck ShowThe All-New Mitch Henck Show
    You are every bit as pathetic as David Blaska, if not more so. You purposely lying about my words for undeserved attention for both you and David Blaska at the expense of MY personal safety. How ironic. I NEVER threatened David Blaska and I made it clear that I was quoting HIM. My mispelling of his name is NOT the issue here. It is you and he lying to insight fear and to cause people to be misled. You sir can be added to my formal police report for being reckless and willfully causing me to be harassed by LYING. In addition to a formal complaint, you can and will be sued for defaming MY name. Sincerely, Shadayra Kilfoy-Flores P.S. You might consider wearing a clean shirt while spreading your dirty lies.

    All this was about a post that Shadayra Kilfoy-Flores originally posted on Facebook that read…

    I think someone who cares about David Balaska, I’m sure there are a ton, should ask him not to “put his life on the line” by running for school board. Maybe his hero, Paula Fitzgerald, will convince him that his life is not worth putting in jeopardy.

    Yes believe it or not, those are all real Facebook quotes. Shadayra Kilfoy-Flores claims that these people are lying about her words, well Shandayra, there are YOUR words right there in black and white and and I’m calling YOU a liar right here and now; you never stated or implied who you were quoting – period – end of discussion. If you honestly think you properly attributed what was inside the quotation marks then you need to go back to one of those violence infested High Schools and learn what you should have learned the first time you were there, how to quote someone so people actually know what you mean, stating these things after-the-fact just doesn’t cut it, it’s all rationalizations trying to whitewash your threatening language.

    Shadayra and Araceli,
    You need to stop trying to justify that which is not justifiable. Shadayra your original post that started this was unethical, and regardless of your intent your post was easily perceived as being threatening, you were wrong for posting it. Araceli, you’re foolishly unethical trying to justify what Shadayra wrote. You two need to get your heads out of the darkness of the social justice warrior cult and walk into the light of reality. It’s my opinion that you two are both foolish idiots.

    Have a nice day.

  16. Shadayra Kilfoy-Flores words should be taken as a threat and calling the throngs of idiots to action and now she is trying to hide her illegal threats behind the classic it was just a joke or that’s not what I meant rationalizations. Intelligent people that use their cognisant abilities to actually comprehend the written word aren’t a stupid as Shadayra must think, I call bull shit on Shadayra’s claims that she didn’t threaten David Blaska.

    I don’t care one bit what anyone says, anything that appears to be a threat in any way shape or form should always be taken 100% seriously, and you can quote me on that. If someone had written the same thing about Shadayra she should justifiably take it a threatening.

    It’s my personal opinion that Shadayra doesn’t know what the golden rule is or she doesn’t think it applies to her, which is of course what any person that allows the nonsense of the social justice warrior cult to infect their brain would think.

    Shadayra Kilfoy-Flores wrote, “In addition to a formal complaint, you can and will be sued for defaming MY name.”

    Only ignorant fools issue idle threats like that one.

    Shadayra,
    A word of advice, take it or leave it. It’s not defamation to literally quote someone word-for-word and render your personal opinion about what was quoted. You literally started this whole thing with your literal threats and you were ignorant enough to put them in writing. If you’re actually stupid enough to file a defamation lawsuit then you better find yourself a profiteering unethical lawyer trying to profit on an unwinnable defamation case because no reputable lawyer would take your case and you don’t appear to be qualified to act as your own attorney, or are you one of those people that claim to be a lawyer in all but degree. I hope you and/or your idiotic supporters have have really deep pockets because you are going to have to dig, dig, dig.

    Shadayra the right thing for you to do is to is stop rationalizing your threats and make a very public apology to David Blaska. How about you be a real adult, humble yourself, and apologize to David Blaska on The All-New Mitch Henck Show and at the same time you can apologize to both Mitch and David for calling them pathetic and saying they are lying. This would go a long way to heal the damage that you yourself created.

    • Shadayra here is relevant information about how to properly apologize.

      The Apology Scale
      Here is the hierarchy of apologies, their function and their motivation, 1-10, from most admirable to despicable:

      1. An apology motivated by the realization that one’s past conduct was unjust, unfair, and wrong, constituting an unequivocal admission of wrongdoing as well as regret, remorse and contrition, as part of a sincere effort to make amends and seek forgiveness.

      2. An apology motivated by the realization that one’s legitimate and defensible action or words caused unanticipated, excessive, or unnecessary harm to a particular party or parties. The apology expresses a sincere regret that the harm occurred.

      3. An apology motivated by a desire to accept accountability for an event or occurrence that one may not have caused, but was responsible for in some way.

      4. A spontaneous apology intended to demonstrate compassion and sympathy for the victim or victims of the unavoidable consequences of a necessary action.

      5. A spontaneous apology designed to prevent future, preventable harm by expressing regret that a past action was necessary or that it occurred at all.

      6. A forced or compelled version of 1-4, when the individual (or organization) apologizing knows that an apology is appropriate but would have avoided making one if he or she could have gotten away with it.

      7. A forced or compelled version of 1-4, in which the individual (or organization) apologizing may not sincerely believe that an apology is appropriate, but chooses to show the victim or victims of the act inspiring it that the individual responsible is humbling himself and being forced to admit wrongdoing by the society, the culture, legal authority, or an organization or group that the individual’s actions reflect upon or represent .

      8. A forced apology for a rightful or legitimate act, in capitulation to bullying, fear, threats, desperation or other coercion.

      9. Deceitful apologies, in which the wording of the apology is crafted to appear apologetic when it is not (“if my words offended, I am sorry”). Another variation: apologizing for a tangential matter other than the act or words that warranted an apology.

      10. An insincere and dishonest apology designed to allow the wrongdoer to escape accountability cheaply, and to deceive his or her victims into forgiveness and trust, so they are vulnerable to future wrongdoing.

      Shadayra,
      Your apology goal should be #1 but I’d place bets and give odds that an apology from you about this fiasco that you started wouldn’t rise above #7.
