Day #28 in the coronavirus lock-down;
Just another day in the Madison WI re-education camp
A neighbor in nearby Meadowood reports that over the past weekend his metal yard sign was stolen. It read:
“Open Wisconsin NOW, Tony”
At least his sign did not read “Fix It Again, Tony,” which would have been an obvious affront to the Werkes’ staff FIAT 500C. In any event, someone did not agree with our neighbor’s sentiment. In true Madison fashion, the sign was expropriated, lest its subversive message corrupt young minds on furlough from the Madison public schools’ stolen driver’s-ed program. (Anyone want to be our superintendent? Anyone?) Our Meadowood Neighbor reports:
In the last week, I have put up different messages, such as “Help Farmers, Buy Milk”, and on Easter Sunday “Where Is Your Hope Today”. But I guess any message that might suggest any hint of opposition to our Governor was just too much for some people in this city. I have had campaign signs stolen from my yard in the past. They were for Republicans, so I guess I deserved it, right?
Dying for profit!
Yes, you did deserve it, Neighbor! Be thankful you did not get a chemical swastika burned into your lawn!
Meadowood Neighbor’s plaint roused Madison’s liberal-progressive-socialists to raise their pitchforks. “Sad that someone would steal your sign,” responded one neighbor (via the NextDoor social media site), but maybe they were just worried that ignorant public expressions of this sort would cost lives.”
Mr. Trent Tulpo of Greentree gave voice to that other virus incubating in Madison, that of intolerant virtue-signaling: “You want people to die for profit apparently.” (All those barkeeps and wait staff jones-ing for their dirty profits!)
Phillip Gessert of Orchard Ridge piled on: “It’s actually good that these signs got stolen.”
Jace Nichols of Meadowood issued this veiled threat: “Post your actual address and I’ll deliver something even better than that sign right to your doorstep.”
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Why do images of severed horse heads come to mind? Tommy guns produced from under trench coats? We wanted to respond, “That’s fine. We’ll be waiting!” but for once, we exercised self-restraint. (Not that we’ll make that mistake again.)
