Kookie, Kookie, can I borrow your flag?
A guilty white boy named Scott Gordon runs one of Madison’s seemingly innumerable alternative-Lefty publications called “Tone Madison.”
Like Brandi Grayson and the rest of the BLM progressives, he is rallying to save Madison’s Progressive Dane mayor from being recalled from office. He writes:
“Look out for “Recall Satya” yard signs soon, in front of the houses in your neighborhoods that are already decked out with kooky American flag shit.”
“Kooky American flag S * * *” ?
These boots are made for licking …
(And one of these days these boots are going to walk all over you!)
Recall supporters are “boot-licking rubes,” says Gordon of Tone Madison, “the kind who tried to counter-protest by covering up graffiti-covered plywood with “We Support Our Madison Police” signs.”
(Normally, we would link to his Tone piece, but there’s just too many vicious ad hominem attacks.) Tone Madison allows that:
“It’s true that protestors beat up a state senator who took video of rioters during a June 24 demonstration, though there are disputed accounts about his behavior and some were concerned about police or white supremacists using video to target retaliatory actions.”
The gray lab coasts here at the Werkes have observed that criminals engaged in vandalism, beatings, and fire bombings often do not wish to be recorded for fear of such “retaliatory actions” as arrest, prosecution, conviction, and punishment.
Mayor Satya Rhodes Conway has done her best to bash the police. She ordered them to stand down in the worst of the riots, apologized for recognizing their hard work in difficult circumstances, demanded the immediate release of the “peaceful” extortionist with the peaceful baseball bat and the peaceful bullhorn, celebrated the boarding up of State Street, is appointing a $200,000 police “monitor” with subpoena power, and appointed cop-hater Brenda Konkel to chair the Public Safety Review Committee.
Not enough for Madison’s hard left. Gordon in Tone Madison:
“People outside of Madison (or in Madison, but outside reality) think we have a local government overrun with radical leftists. If only! During the protests and the COVID-19 crisis, we’ve often seen better leadership from abolitionist, Black liberation, communist, anarchist, and socialist organizations …”
⇒ That Sire Gq (the alias for Marquon Clark) is some fiery leader!
Satya is a disappointment to Madison social justice warriors because she has not defunded the police “which is the best mechanism the Mayor and Common Council have for holding police accountable.” Instead,
“Rhodes-Conway exacerbated danger, largely by declaring a curfew that gave MPD easy grounds for escalating things from a few instances of looting to riots that turned downtown into a landscape of tear gas and burning dumpsters.”
“A few instances of looting”?! Make that 75 stores on State Street alone that were bashed, looted or both. But that is how Madison’s hard-left, University of Wisconsin-educated progressives think. Criminals are not to blame for looting and kristallnacht — police are. It’s the same pretzel logic that blames Donald Trump for 60-straight days of mayhem in Portland, Oregon.
