Fighting racism with a gun, a sledgehammer, and some Jack

The ballad of Jordan King, BLM hero

If Jordan King had a sledgehammer, he’d hammer in the morning.
He’d hammer in the evening, all over the Square. 
He’d hammer out statues, he’d hammer out police memorials.
He’d hammer out windows during the ‘mostly peaceful ‘protests
All over this town.

And after doing all that hammering, Jordan A. King (apparently) likes to get hammered.

Fair amount of table pounding that King (no relation to Martin Luther King Jr.) was released on a signature bond after Wednesday’s (08-26-2020) initial court appearance. This is the 25-year-old who took a sledgehammer (alleged, alleged, alleged) to the Memorial for Law Enforcement Officers killed in the line of duty, located on the State Capitol grounds.

⇒ Readers are invited to pause here for a moment of silent contemplation. Perhaps, even, take a knee.

Cops killed in the line of duty? Yes: 89 last year alone. (FBI stats here.) Which may explain why cops get jittery when a detainee attempts to reach for something in their cars. Only the Republican National Convention acknowledged that Blue Lives also Matter. The convention featured Ann Dorn, widow of the slain retired St. Louis police captain [a Black man], recounting her late husband’s life and death at the hands of a looter. (Watch here.)

Jordan A. King is also implicated in busting the glass at Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes’s office in the Capitol, which only proves that The Man is still the enemy no matter how Black or woke he gets. Damage to the Law Enforcement memorial is estimated anywhere between $15,000 and $50,000. Damage to the Capitol around $6,500. According to the WI State Journal, King was also seen on video smashing $20,000 worth of windows at a West Mifflin Street restaurant. (Has anyone told the inflammable Althea Bernstein that almost all of Downtown Madison is on camera?)

Not a flight risk?

Police say King fled across the Capitol lawn and changed his clothes in an attempt to evade arrest. Now you know why the well dressed social justice warrior’s wardrobe is not complete  without a well stocked backpack. Jordan A. King’s backpack held:

  • One handgun of unspecified make or caliber
  • 40 rounds of ammo AND
  • two bottles of whiskey!

The brass knuckles, on the other hand, he keeps in his pocket. Throw in some charcoal lighter fluid, box of matches, some bandages, carton of milk to ward off the pepper spray, and you’re ready to do some serious social justice!

King is charged with two counts felony criminal damage to property and illegal concealed weapon, a misdemeanor. (No license required for concealed carry a bottle of whisky.) Jordan A. King is a Freedom Fighter to Madison’s progressive/anarchist Left.

Jordan King, hero

Ismael Ozanne for the revolving door

For the record, it was court commissioner Jason Hanson who set bail conditions. But more to the point, the State of Wisconsin was represented by Dane County District Attorney Ismael R. Ozanne. Not a low-ranking deputy, as would be typical for these initial appearances, but the head guy himself. Prosecutors ask for bail. The defense attorneys counters by arguing for the lowest amount they can get away with. We do not know if Ozanne asked for a high bail and was out-argued by the defense attorney or if commissioner Hanson is on board with sledgehammering our cultural icons. Nor do we know the brand of whiskey favored by BLM/Antifa/BernieBois. We suspect it is union shop, locally sourced, organic, and fair trade whiskey. In fairness, there were some conditions placed on soldier King:

  1. Stay off State Street, Langdon Street, and Capitol Square.
  2. Possess no “dangerous” weapons.

Blaska’s Bottom LineNo court strictures on the man’s whiskey. The man has to salve his conscience any way he can.

Does the combination of gun and whiskey make Jordan King
Mostly Peaceful or Mostly Dangerous?
What do YOU think?

    Has Mayor SRC asked for this FIERY but largely peaceful Black Liberationist‘s preliminary hearing to be fast-tracked so that guaranteed…um…results Restorative Justice may be invoked?

    Yet more evidence of the frauduent distinction made by the media and progressives in general between “peaceful” BLM protesters and the criminal vandals, looters, rioters and garden-variety thugs that have made a habit of trashing downtown Madison.

    Jordan King is not to be confused with the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., who willingly suffered to advance the cause of black people. Jordan King ran across the Capitol grounds to try to avoid Dane County Jail. Rev. King wrote “Letter from the Birmingham Jail.”

    To paraphrase a noted political quote: “Jordan King, we know about the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., and you’re no Martin Luther King, Jr.”

    Don’t Forget about Josh Kaul and his team of sycophants. I want to thank the NBA, NHL and MLB for postponing games so the entire country could focus on incredible testimonies of the Republican Convention and then turn the channel to to literally and figuratively fiery peaceful protestors.

    I am sorry it is time to put a sundown curfew for these peaceful protests. LOL

    To Jordan King:
    Young man, if you are really for peace, why do you need to smash windows?
    Why do you need to deface property?
    Why do you need to carry a gun?
    Did Dr. King ever advocate smashing windows or defacing property?
    Did Dr. King ever carry a gun to any of his marches?
    What did Jesus say about using the sword?
    As the Bible says: “And behold, one of those who accompanied Jesus put his hand to his sword, drew it, and struck the high priest’s servant, cutting off his ear.
    Then Jesus said to him, “Put your sword back into its sheath, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword.””

    Be careful young man, for next time you come across a gun, you may find the gun pointed at you.
