Militants vow further action.
State Street and the Capitol Square endured a second night of violence Sunday night (05-31-2020) in which 15 were arrested. Not even Sun Prairie was spared!
Three of Madison’s most militant, anti-police groups plan to meet at noon today (06-01-2020) at Madison police headquarters, 211 S. Carroll Street. Those organizations are Bianca Gomez’ Freedom, Inc., which has shut down the Madison school board, Brandi Grayson’s Urban Triage Inc., and the Party for Socialism and Liberation.
‘Our organizations will not denounce any Black person’s display of grief and/or rage. All actions against racist state violence are justified.’
The three groups issued a statement that seems to justify the vandalism, burning and looting that occurred the past two nights on Madison. It reads, in part:
“We … will continue to demand: defund the police, reparations for all Black people, release all incarcerated Black people from jail, get cops out of schools, and community control over the police.
“Five years ago, when we protested for Tony Robinson, these same acts were not considered peaceful. We marched, we chanted, and we stood on the Capitol steps. We chained ourselves to the doors of the jail, in demonstration of our rage, of our hurt, and our pain. We were called thugs and violent antagonizers — leading to the arrest of several Black leaders and demonstrators.
“Now, the anti-black media, elected officials, and some community leaders are using the events of last night to divide our community; to criminalize Black youth while holding us as the example of a “peaceful” protest. This is indicative of the insidious nature of white supremacist patriarchal capitalism. … this is one of the many ways white supremacist patriarchal capitalism is perpetuated by progressive liberal cities like Madison, WI …
“Peace comes when we end poverty and capitalism. Peace comes when we end violence of ALL forms against Black women, girls, boys, men and LGBTQ+ folx. Peace comes when our children can be academically fulfilled. Peace comes when cops are out of schools. Peace comes when the jails are empty. … Peace comes when white supremacist patriarchal capitalism is no more. …
“Our organizations will not denounce any Black person’s display of grief and/or rage. All actions against racist state violence are justified and we will not minimize these contributions to liberation.“
Blaska’s Bottom Line: The notion that conservative Trump supporters are stoking the chaos is a typical Marxist disinformation tactic.
Where did you get that statement from the three groups, is there a link?
Never mind, I found it on Facebook.
It’s my opinion that any person(s) regardless of their race or social status or sexual orientation or chosen gender that openly states that “peace comes when the jails are empty” is a brainwashed social justice warrior moron; that ludicrous statement alone is so signature significant that it’s likely that it came from someone that is clinically deranged and that deranged person has sucked gullible people into a cult like following of sheeple.
”Who is stoking YOUR chaos?”
The mobs of miscreant POS thug wannabes.
Their empty heads are fertile ground in which the Handlers may plant the seeds of EPIC STOOPIDITY.
In the Cannon Fodder service of this crushing MORONITY, one of these monumentally imbecilic dip$#!ts is going to break the wrong person’s window and receive experience, immediately and at once, that will never darken nor grow; The Gotch will not feel one whit of compassion.
Amused at the blurbs on Madison cleaning up after the rioting/looting. “This is the real Madison”, or sentiments to that effect. Yes, allow the city to burn to the ground, let Goodman’s – who’ve done no shortage of good things for the community – be trashed, etc., etc. Then smugly toss the remains of your city into the trash.

Bravo Indigo November Golf Oscar, Paul!
Exactly The Gotch household’s take. The Goodman Brothers (whom the lovely and long suffering Mrs. Gotch dealt with professionally) charitable contributions to the 77 Square Miles Surrounded By A Sea Of Reality are second to none.
Madison shrugging its shoulders and essentially flipping them off isn’t all that surprising; supreme arrogance on steroids!

If this group wants the jails closed. I guess they are ok with: domestic abuse (Ms. Grayson has on occasion called the police because her boyfriend was beating her up), drunk drivers, child molesters, drug dealers, murders, and car jackers. Shall I go on?
39++ of gentrification and redevelopment of downtown Madison is going to hell real quick. With that the tax base.
The BLM and others can bellyache all they want but it’s the taxes that fund the government and subsequently themselves.
Any idea if shops and restaurants with BLM placards were saved?

“Shall I go on?”
Please do, Ed, especially the travails of the hypocrites!
My theory for not wanting the police is so they can extort their own community (such a liberal word: community). It’s a simple power grab.
I suspect the vast majority of people have no issue with the police. The ones that do, don’t when they need the police. When someone runs into their car, breaks into their residence, attacks them, etc…
Similar to lawyers. You are them until you need one.
“”Peace comes when we end poverty and capitalism.”
In the history of the world, more stupid words have never been spoken.
There is one, and only one, cure for poverty. That would be wealth. There is NO OTHER REMEDY for poverty. None. You might think that since that is a fact, all the social justice warriors who want nothing more than to eliminate poverty everywhere, would be absolutely obsessed with how wealth is created. Instead, they are completely uncurious. Oh, they’re all over the idea that wealth EXISTS. They’ve got some great ideas about how to redistribute it. They even purport to know who has it all; billionaires. (It used to be “millionaires and billionaires,” but that was before Bernie and Obama joined the ranks of millionaires. Now only billionaires have wealth.)
But where did it come from? Not a clue. Maybe it was just always there, and they just happened to find it! Yeah, sort of like how Balboa “discovered” the Pacific Ocean. or Columbus discovered America.
If you do not understand that capitalism has lifted virtually the entire population of Earth out of the grinding poverty that has been mankind’s default switch for as long as he has existed, then you are excused from this conversation. You have nothing of substance to offer, particularly about how to combat poverty. And what you call poverty today, describes the lifestyle that Kings and Emperors WISHED they could have had 300 years ago.
I think “The Gotch” should run for mayor.

Looting? No, but your judgement may come under fire…
