Now everyone is breaking windows!
Who is Brandi Grayson? She is Urban Triage, one of scores of social justice boutiques that close down busy thoroughfares at taxpayer expense. Taxpayers are paying her to start BLM chapters in Madison’s public schools.
Ms. Grayson led the Derail the Jail campaign five years ago (Seems to be working; jail still not built) and Justice for Tony Robinson before that. Brandi is Defund the Police and Cops Out of Schools, and Reparations. But wait, there’s more. She demands: “Release all incarcerated Black people from jail!” Even this guy?
Brandi Grayson is also a candidate for alder in the 14th District on Madison’s south side. She is running against Ald. Sheri Carter, who is also Black but not the right kind of Black. The problem? Ald. Carter isn’t a racist.
Who are Brandi Grayson’s heroes?
One of them is the guy that stole the head of a statue of Civil War slavery abolitionist Hans Christian Heg during the BLM days of rage last summer. Police caught the guy and (mirabile dictu!) prosecutors charged him. VOILA! Brandi Grayson and Madison’s hard Left have a new hero/martyr to go along with knife-wielding Jacob Blake and the guy wielding a baseball bat and bullhorn who extorted downtown businesses or face BLM destruction.
In arresting the head hunter, “police are doing exactly what they were created to do: hunt down Black bodies that cause too much trouble.”
Brandi tries for moral equivalence by alleging (against all evidence) that the White insurrectionists at the nation’s Capitol 01-06-21 are being given a free pass.
After the kristallnacht on State Street at the end of May 2020, Brandi exulted: “We had a great protest. Now white folks are downtown breaking windows!” She and Freedom Inc. and the revolutionary socialists raised bail for the looters.
Spoiling for a fight
Capitol police and the FBI are warning everyone to stay away from the Wisconsin Capitol up to Wednesday’s 01-20-21 Presidential inauguration in D.C. As Pavlov might predict, Grayson’s Urban Triage will show up on Monday 01-18-21. along with Progressive Dane, Allies for Black Lives, Bernie’s Socialists, and Madison’s paramilitary * Wobblies (“IWW General Defense Committee local 100.”) Purpose: to oppose “the fascist presence in our local community and across the country.”
* From their website: As a revolutionary, the Industrial Workers of the World aims to use any and all tactics that will get the results sought with the least expenditure of time and energy. The tactics used are determined solely by the power of the organization to make good in their use. The question of “right” and “wrong” does not concern us.
Mark these words: Brandi Grayson will win the endorsement of Progressive Dane and — judging by the worshipful press given her — The Capital Times, too. Just like Alds. Mad Max Prestigiacomo (“F-bomb S * * * up!”) and Rebecca Kemble did.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: In our more peevish moments, we say Madison deserves them.
