Here is another C-word:
Censure Ald. Prestigiacomo for inciting violence!
The head groundskeeper at Blaska Policy Werkes has known Paul Skidmore well for the past decade or so. Not once has the alderman been heard to utter a “damn” or a “hell.” On her WIBA 1310 AM radio program Vicki McKenna said that was her experience with this gentle man, as well.
So it is unlikely that Paul would utter the dreaded gender-based C-word, which he is accused of using to describe a particularly vexatious social justice warrior in the wee hours of a way-too-long Common Council meeting this week (09-02-2020).
This would be what is known as a “kerfuffle” except that the Progressive Dane political party is weaponizing what should be little more than background noise in order to bring down the one consistent defender of the police in elected Madison government these past few years. Yeah, it’s political. They want to police-proof Madison city government.
Fourteen of the Council’s 20 alders are demanding — Get This! — forensic analysis of the recording of the on-line Zoom meeting! It’s Watergate! Strap on the headphones!
We use Zoom here at the Werkes. The Hollywood Squares, tic-tac-toe panel lights up the square of whomever is speaking. Ald. Skidmore did not light up. Ald. Skidmore denies it most — we were going to write “vociferously” except that Paul does not vociferate. We’ll write “ardently.” Paul also happens to be a sincere Christian.
The head groundskeeper at the Werkes, we’ve long believed, has a touch of Tourette syndrome. (XX ♠ξ ℘!!) But not Paul. That hasn’t stopped [UPDATE: it’s now up to 14] alders from pillorying Ald. Skidmore by name — with no evidence, only supposition.
Those 14 include eight of the nine in the Progressive Dane contingent — Rebecca Kemble, Patrick Heck, Mike Verveer, Marsha Rummel, Tag Evers, Grant Foster, Christian Albouras, and Mad Max Prestigiacomo plus frequent fliers Shiva Bidar, Arvina Martin, Syed Abbas, Lindsay Lemmer, Donna Moreland, and Keith Furman.
We must find the C-word culprit for “reconciliation with the community,” the 13 write. Which is rich.
Where is the accountability for Ald. Prestigiacomo? On his personal Facebook page this young whelp promotes the continued destruction of Madison. Presto posted the poster declaring “Do Whatever You Want” and “F-bomb S*** Up!”
Could MY community have a little reconciliation? This is the same city government that is paying for F-bombing the plywood covering shuttered up businesses throughout Downtown Madison.
The Werkes encourages Alds. Skidmore, Henak, Harrington-McKinney, Carter, Tierney, Baldeh — the splendid seven who did not sign — to put forward a motion to censure Ald. Prestigiacomo and call the roll!
Yes, Progressive Madison, words have meaning. This city government under Mayor Satya (Progressive Dane) has been pillorying police since Day One, defending depictions of our sworn police officers as pigs, demanding the worst of the rioters be released back into the streets, putting the cop haters at Freedom Inc. in judgment of the police. You have softened the ground for the destruction of Madison.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: How much more moral cover can our elected leaders give the smash and grabbers, how much more can they pillory the police, without bearing some of the blame?

What do you want to bet this won’t be a cause for more riots?
An Antifa sympathizer who was said to be a suspect in the fatal shooting of a Patriot Prayer supporter in Portland, Ore., last month was reportedly killed Thursday night as authorities moved in to arrest him. Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, died outside Seattle during an operation by a federal fugitive task force, The New York Times reported.
Reinoehl’s death was also confirmed by a senior Justice Department official, according to The Associated Press. The suspect was shot by law enforcement after drawing a gun on officers, according to Fox News.
