Madison’s Cancel Culture is fast actin’!
A guy named Doug Hyant announced he’s running for Madison alder yesterday (09-03-2020), barely one day after Tuesday/Wednesday’s marathon Common Council meeting.
What makes this development extra juicy is that Hyant, it appears, was the one who fed reporters for The Capital Times and WI State Journal about the alleged C-wording of a tireless cop hater (Shadara Kilfoy-Flores) who testified in the wee hours of Wednesday morning (09-03-2020). Hyant, for the benefit of reporters Emily Hamer of the WI State Journal and Abigail Becker of The Capital Times, identified the speaker of the dreaded C-word as Ald. Paul Skidmore. Who is Hyant running against? Paul Skidmore.
Hyant’s Tweet of the relevant portion of the nine-hour Common Council meeting — in the wee hours Wednesday — contains the infamous C-word. But it’s hard to make out and darned if anyone can tell whose voice it is. Paul vows it was not him and I believe it. It is also not unknown that Zoom can be hacked.
What’s more, Hyant tweeted his suppositions to reporters at 2:55 that Wednesday morning — almost simultaneous with the alleged obscenity! That’s fast work. At 4:07 Ald. Rebecca Kemble tweets back her appreciation.
But 14 Common Council members are sure who they want it to be: Ald. Paul Skidmore and they will hound him to Baskerville and beyond. (See “The C-word stands for conspiracy.”)
Skidmore’s challenger is ready to “dismantle systemic racism.” Which, in Madison, translates to handcuffing the police. He’s already got State Rep. Lisa Subeck as a treasurer. Doug Hyant is no babe in the woods. He was executive director of the Assembly Democratic Campaign Committee. Now he is chief of staff to the Democrat’s Assembly caucus director.
Hyant has the support of UW professor of Gender & Women’s Studies Sami Schalk — a big supporter of Progressive Dane/Cops Out of Schools school board members Ananda Mirilli and Ali Muldrow.

There have been several reports of Zoom-bombing …There’s one that mired with racial slurs a UCLA class on the history of the racial and cultural roots of Mexico. Another one disrupted an Arizona State University class on storytelling with pornographic videos. In Singapore, the ministry of education decided to ban Zoom for home-based teaching after hackers hijacked classes with explicit imagery.
