The Left’s cancel culture visits Orchard Ridge

aka North Korea south!

Like dandelions in spring, lawns on my southwest side Madison WI neighborhood are littered with Biden/Harris yard signs. Many share space with those “Science Is Real” claims and the multi-lingual “Everyone is Welcome even if you lied to get here” sentiments.

Except for the one neighbor with his Trump/Pence sign. Which lasted for maybe two days before the bare wire rendered mute testimony to Madison’s cancel culture. The homeowner then posted another sign high up on a utility pole which, by the time the Werkes surveillance team saw it, had been spray painted over.

This morning 10-20-20 we came across his third attempt at free speech: an ink-jet printed poster with the simple message: “Stop the looting, shooting, and carnage! Vote Trump!” Within a half-hour, it, too, had been spray painted over.

Whereupon the heads groundskeeper hereabouts posted his own sign under the censored sign. It reads:


Message for the

Gutless Wonder

who keeps vandalizing my neighbor’s 
Trump for President signs 

These are not my signs (although, having been a ‘Never Trump’ Republican four years ago, I’m voting for the man this time). Which is why I am not vandalizing all the Biden/Harris signs you see in this neighborhood. They are entitled to their opinion. It’s in the First Amendment. You can put up your own sign. I may not agree with it but I won’t destroy it because I believe in free speech and respect other people’s property, unlike you. 

Now, you anonymous coward, 

take your spray can back down to boarded-up State Street
where your self-righteous cancel culture will be most welcome.

I am David Blaska and I approve this message. I am asking my neighbors to keep an eye out for you. Be sure to wash your hands.


Blaska’s Bottom LineIf I ever find the culprit, s/he’ll be wearing black spray paint at the cop shop. (BTW: the squiggly image in the photograph of my sign is a worm.)

Why do Leftists feel so entitled?

    A few months ago, a neighbor posted a BLM sign on the front-edge, and corner of their property (situated a blk away from traffic lights) a major traffic conduit /gateway to my neighborhood. I wrote them a signed letter asking them if it occured to them that the placement of the sign was bespeaking a “support” for this ORGINIZATION (founded by SELF-professed Marxists) .from the entire neighborhood , and that this was a bit presumptiuous, and maybe not well-thought-out. I got no response (I included my address, e-mail, and phone #) BUT they did move their sign closer to their front-door. Mature , grown-up behaviour is alien to some, but more radically lacking in all of these “benevolent” “virtuous” “B n’ H” “Folks” , and they should be calling out this crap of someone vandalizing THEIR NEIGHBORS property, but “No” , too many people prefer Fiction, and their “narratives”.

    Cold blooded murder by fascists, of citizens exercising their constitutional rights. You mean like the TV station security guard in Denver? Or maybe you’re talking about the Antifa murderer in Portland who executed a Trump supporter. No, I think you’re talking about the black man in Milwaukee with the Trump sign in his shop window who was gunned down. Still unsolved by the way, but I’m sure that doesn’t bother anybody because, you know, Trump supporter, he deserved it.

    It has to be one of those because Kyle Rittenhouse is going to walk out the door in a CLEAR CUT case of self defense. Of course that will likely drive Alfie to take to the streets to riot, loot and burn again. Your overuse of the term fascist is rather telling. Psychologists would call that projecting.

        Gg Mo, you do know your history, (props). Antifa are not fascists, mainly because they are not nationalistic at all, much less ultra-nationalists. The tactics, though, of Fascism and Cheka (and Antifa) to control their people, and destroy their enemies, are nearly identical. I, for one, greatly enjoy the idea of throwing the “fascist” label back into the face of Antifa at every opportunity. I earlier lobbied for a German font on a sign, (it just looks cool, and unlike Cyrillic, it can be read), German fonts and fascist labels are aimed at Antifa’s tactics, not strict ideology.

    IMO, one death by the repression of any government is one too many. That said, GgMo, why stop at 170 million? Why not round it off to 300 or 400 million while you’re at at? Yes, you seem to read a lot of history, but, with all due respect, I’m not seeing a whole lot of ability to synthesize what you are reading into an accurate accounting of history.

    Your 170 million figure is total BS on the face of it, and I’ll leave it to others to hash this out if they want. Peace.
