The government takeover succeeded — in Madison WI

Intimidation worked here!

The consensus reaction to Wednesday’s assault on the nation’s Capitol (01-06-21) was: Where were the police? In Madison, they were told to stand down.

Moderate Republican Peggy Noonan urges: “We lower the boom. No civilized country can accept or allow … the violent assault on the U.S. Capitol. This was an attack on democracy itself. … Throw the book at them … throw it hard.”

⇒ In Madison, the insurgents would be given a GPS ankle bracelet and released on their own recognizance. Hailed as heroes of the Revolution.

Nancy Pelosi is angry. Capitol Police put too few boots on the ground. Not enough body armor, face shields, truncheons, or pepper spray.

⇒ Madison WI is considering banning pepper spray.

The feds are arresting Trump’s goon squad using facial recognition technology.

Already banned in Madison WI.

The social justice warrior putsch

Mitt Romney said, “What happened here was an insurrection.” Then what would you call what happened in Madison WI last summer (2020)?

We argue that Madison government HAS been overthrown. More gradually, but just the same. It has been intimidated into releasing repeat offenders on recognizance bond. The mayor and other Progressive Dane types demanded the release that that BLM extortionist with the baseball bat and bullhorn. (“Free Yeshua!”)

BLM says Hello. On Gloria Reyes’ front lawn Where her children play with their toys. On her front lawn!

Madison expelled police school  resource officers from our troubled public high schools after social justice warriors mau-maued the school board president at her home late one evening. Result: Running, high-speed gun shoot outs. An epidemic of stolen cars. Madison experienced 250 shots fired incidents (compared to 144 in 2019), but the more alarming statistic (not mentioned in the attached story) is the number of shell casings recovered by police (nearly 1100 compared to 473 for 2019.

⇒ Official Madison’s response: Putting convicted criminals, drug addicts, and enact racial quotas to second guess every beat cop’s split-second decision.

Freedom Inc. shut down the school board’s 2019 statutory budget meeting. The Madison school board fled into the nigh. Blaska among other citizens filed a complaint.

⇒  Our district attorney’s response: No prosecution. 

The city county building, the seat of local government, is fire bombed in June 2020. A gay Democrat(ic) legislator is beaten — as is a Black man trying to navigate the isthmus on his way to visit a relative in the hospital.  Statues of abolitionists and suffragettes are pulled down. (Police just recovered Colonel Heg’s head.) Kristallnacht on blocks and blocks of boarded up Downtown Madison? 

⇒ Police are told to stand down.

“It’s disgraceful what has occurred,” former police chief Mike Koval commented at the time. “The essential services of a mayor is to secure the safety of all its constituents and she is woefully deficient in that regard .. we have enabled chaos to be the the new ruler of the day. … (the Police) are literally hamstrung.”

State Rep. Barb Ward Dittrich, R-Oconomowoc: “On June 5 I led my colleagues in writing to Gov. Evers urging him to protect our State Capitol and its surrounding monuments. He never replied. Now Lady Forward lays toppled by protesters in the middle of Mifflin St. Enough!”

The birds still tweet

Trump’s social media accounts have been shut down. (The man may consider that more consequential than impeachment.) Blaska is taking considerable incoming fire calling for Trump’s resignation. But we are still something of a free speech enclave — as Hong Kong once was in a sea of Communism. If what amounts to a public utility — Twitter and Facebook — can censor its users, the Werkes has its own Cancel Culture enemies list.  

“Stop murdering black people and your glass will be safe.” That’s not Sen. Ron Johnson asking for an elections study commission. That is Freedom Inc.’s M Adams last summer in Madison WI  threatening violence if her agenda is not enacted. The lady still walks free.

Can we ban BLM? Bianca Gomez of Freedom Inc.? The Party for Socialism and Freedom? They’ve been advertising riots, organizing cook-outs on the Beltline at rush hour, late-night raids on the private homes of school board members, and window smashing on State Street. We’ve more candidates for cloture if you want them.

Ald. Mad Max Prestigiacomo urges Madison to F-bomb S * * * up in an upcoming riot, advertising on social media.

⇒ He still tweets. As a member of the Madison Common Council.

    Twitter dumping trump is not a free speech issue, here is their statement:

    After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.

    In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action. Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly. It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open.

    However, we made it clear going back years that these accounts are not above our rules entirely and cannot use Twitter to incite violence, among other things. We will continue to be transparent around our policies and their enforcement.

    Perhaps for the first time in his life he’s being punished for breaking the rules he said he’d comply with.

    richard,

    Look, the election was stolen from us. We know that to be true. Donald Trump is not the reason why we are mad. The fact that the election was stolen is. If Donald Trump had stolen the election I would be just as mad. In my mind, that is something you cannot wrap your mind around.

    On another note: I predict that Joe Biden will not be the President for more than two years and two days. I give him to January 22nd of 2023 to be the President before Kamala declares him mentally incompetent and takes over the Presidency. And why is that day particularly important? Why that would be the day 50 years later in history that the Roe decision was made. On that day in 1973 the United States Supreme Court put the ideas expressed in the Declaration of Independence in a paper shredder and ground it up into bits. Ideas like: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

    For everyone with any brain at all knows that you cannot have Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness without LIFE!

    God will of course, in His own time, see to the punishment of a people that forget that we are made in HIS image.

        In some cases “stolen votes” can be a subjective term. Let me explain. There are some that argue that only a person included in a group, can best represent that group. For example, they would argue a female best represents females, a beet farmer best speaks for beet farmers, and a ne’er do well engineer best serves the ne’er do well engineer community. That being said, those dog-faced pony soldiers that have complained about Special Voting Deputies “stealing” votes for Biden from the 50-75% of the residents of group homes that have no idea what’s going on should stop and think. In the end, with Joe’s fine cognitive ability, what better representative could the mentally handicapped have? Likewise those sticklers for the Law have pointed out that those who falsely claimed indefinite confinement should have their fraudulently cast votes left uncounted, but with Biden’s upstanding moral character, who better to represent the legally challenged and fraudulent?

        Russia hacked our election and gave votes to Trump.

        Boring competency of Old Joe? Thank you for that but it’ll cost you. I think the Biden family netted serious millions of dollars for Hunter’s expertise in the Ukrainian oil industry and his genius at investing the Chinese millions of dollars. Does Old Joe deny it?
        This is one more clear cut example of Dems accusing others of their own sins.
        Your silliest belief is that Old Joe is competent. Got an example?
        Lemme see, he voted against the liberation of Kuwait, for the invasion of Iraq, against the Surge that won it militarily and for the withdrawal that gave it to ISIS. Its uncanny.
