Can’t anyone run a civil meeting in this town?

Blaska is asking all 20 members of the Madison Common Council and Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway the following:
 

Can you keep order at your own meeting?

Freedom Inc

Blaska being harassed at a school board meeting

The Policy Werkes e-mailed this to our elected city leaders yesterday (06-27-19) and copied the news media. We’ll update if anyone bothers to answer: 

Will the City of Madison assure its citizens that they may attend and speak freely at the Tuesday, July 2 meeting of the Madison Common Council without fear of intimidation or harassment? 

It is at this meeting that the School Resource Officer contract is to be scheduled as an agenda item.

Several organized groups have disrupted government meetings over the issue of policing, including the November 2018 Dane County Board and the October 2018 budget meeting of the Madison Board of Education. I had signed up to speak at the latter meeting; I never got a chance. Protestors shut down the meeting.

You may have read the WI State Journal article “Freedom Inc. challenges liberal Madison with in-your-face approach to racial justice.” 

Supporters, including a “youth squad,” have made a point of shutting down School Board meetings, shouting down and getting in the faces of speakers with alternate viewpoints, calling those who disagree with them racists, repeatedly interrupting Dane County and city of Madison meetings, and generally refusing to abide by what they disdainfully refer to as “respectability politics.”

It is worth noting that the photograph accompanying the article shows myself in the background, clearly being harassed. Freedom Inc. will tell you they were trying to prevent me from video recording “juveniles.” The speaker is Bianca Gomez, an adult employee of Freedom Inc.

At one such Madison school board committee meeting last July, protestors grabbed a smartphone from a district mother and smashed it to the floor. The next day, Police Chief Koval had this to say over the WIBA AM1310 airwaves:

“If you saw some of the dynamic that unfolded, what you saw was a choreographed and orchestrated show of force. It is daunting, it is meant to intimidate, it is meant to marginalize and for those who otherwise want to express some civic opinion that is counter to [the terrorists] own, you are literally leaving the hallway in fear

Specifically, are you going to allow:

• Speakers to exceed the 3-minute time limit?

• Spectators to catcall and snap their fingers while other citizens speak?

• Protestors to chant slogans and unfurl banners?

• Unelected persons to occupy council member seats?

 

Blaska’s Bottom LineThis is a matter of free speech, public safety, and community engagement. Are you going to provide a safe space for all viewpoints, where everyone can exercise their First Amendment free-speech right or will you kowtow to the noisy few? Will you publicize your intention to maintain order so that Madison citizens need not fear attending the July 2 meeting? 

 

Phil Hands freedom inc

Phil Hands’ courageous cartoon calling out Freedom Inc.’s reign of intimidation and harassment. Boy is he catching hell on social media from the social justice warriors!

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Repeat these immortal words of Vice President Mike Pence while presiding over the Senate confirmation vote of Justice Kavanaugh: “The sergeant at arms will restore order. The sergeant at arms will restore order. The sergeant at arms will restore order.”

    With the 77 Square Miles Surrounded By A Sea Of Reality positively awash in guilt inundated White Lefties, what’s the over-under on Hands being labeled a RACIST for depicting an unflattering rear view of a porcine, X-Chromosomal Unit POC?

    Not only that, but it kinda looks like career Lefty race-hustling Bianca Gomez was his…um…inspiration, doesn’t it?

      At least we have a sense of guilt. Unlike the right-wingers who deny little kids a toothbrush, a blanket and decent food then get on TV and laugh it off. 750 dollars a day per kid? What are the private contractors going to do with that large quantity of high quality money they are getting? Maybe add a multi-level deck on their mansion?

        Matter-a-fact, Lefty’s so freakin’ stupid they use pictureS (plural) from the Hopey Changey illegal immigrant child cagings and blame them on The Donald!

          “Obama was NOT doing the same thing.”

          Uh, actually he was, but one must dwell in a fact-based reality to acknowledge that.

          A comment from another blog I frequent:
          The modern migrant crisis was boosted by President Obama when he and his staff made several foolish public statements to the effect that children at our border shouldn’t or wouldn’t be turned away. In 2014 this caused the first wave of unaccompanied kids to be bused to the border, overwhelming the agencies with the job of processing them. The Left championed the caravan, ignored the nightmare of kids in cages, sex slaves slipping through the cracks of enforcement, and general chaos at the border because they didn’t want to “politicize” the situation (read: Obama was president and his piss-poor management of the situation shouldn’t be pinned on him.) As soon as Trump assumed the White House, it was time to politicize the situation, as much as possible.

          The success of the 2014 humanitarian disaster enriched and enabled the coyotes and traffickers, who lie to ignorant people in these countries, promising them the moon in exchange for everything they own, the profits from their future employment/benefit checks, and eventually, once they’re thousands of miles from home and completely under the coyotes’ control, the bodies of their wives and children, but that’s usually saved as a surprise hidden fee. They tell them that they have jobs lined up for them, that it’s easy to reach America, that various (Leftist-inundated) American institutions are on their side and will take care of them, etc. THAT IS WHAT IS DRIVING THIS CRISIS. (bolds/caps mine)

          Now tell us how Hopey Changey deported more illegals than the Bush Administration; I could use the laugh after I smack it over the center field fence.

          Why could I use the laugh? Because you hysterically parroting the unquestionin’ glassy eyin’ lock-steppin’ slobber that your handlers spoon feed you is positively cringe-inducing!

          The Obama policy was to detain unaccompanied children till they were placed. No families were separated. That started with trump and his stooge sessions. Repeating false info from some RWNJ blog which you refuse to name amounts to nothing more than another strike out for youse.

    Gosh, Madison’ reps sure are a bunch of powder puffs, but at least they’re woke weaklings.
    Better to be woke and not challenge the horde than effectively govern and insure citizens the right to voice their opinion. That is the new regressive Lefty Democrat.
    What an embarrassment.

    Read for comprehension fool. My comment was about how the Orange Master could take most dems half his age because they’re such weaklings and undoubtedly that includes our resident limp wrist donut maker. Now make your self useful and cook me up a dozen cake donuts.
