Let’s leave Crazy to the Left
Memorial Day weekend has come and gone and with it a brief outpouring of America the beautiful. Madison WI and the nation are now back to full on crazy. So far, the Left has a slight lead on my conservative right for bat-zip crazy.
Sharp-eyed readers will notice that this blogge has been updated throughout the day because the hits keep on coming. The latest:
Let the show trials begin!
“Community leaders write on windows at MMoCA
to acknowledge their roles in racism.”
Madison personalities, including former Mayor Paul Soglin, apologized for their racism with statements written on the windows of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. This unself-conscious mockery of wokery occurred Sunday 05-30-21.
“It was not until my third tenure that I got the city involved in addressing juvenile justice reform,” Soglin’s own response read. “It was a mistake to assume we should follow the statutory rules. It furthered the inherent racism in the system.”
Who knew Havana Paul was only a step removed from ol’ Jeff Davis?! Others abasing themselves in this exercise in race-shaming were UW-Madison’s deputy vice-chancellor for diversity & inclusion (it’s in her job description), long-time business owner Chuck Bauer, Madison Community Foundation CEO Bob Sorge, and Downtown Madison Inc. president Jason Ilstrup, The Capital Times exults.
The public can see this “art” display, called “AMENDS,” from June 19 to October 24. Or do something useful.
Tony runs up the Woke flag
Gov. Tony Evers has signed executive orders raising the gay pride flag and directing agencies to use gender-neutral language. Pronouns will be prohibited. Will veto bill prohibiting biological boys from wrestling girls in school sports. (Read & weep.) That’s just crazy!
We have revised the “Ruth is making us mental” blog to remind the Defund the Cops crazies that Madison police have long been in the forefront of addressing mental health issues. To the point where the National Alliance of Mentally Ill honored Mike Koval when he was Madison police chief.
What was up with the unclaimed property notices in the Memorial Day Wisconsin State Journal? Four full pages of small print but not in alphabetical order!? (!!!) When the State Treasurer ran the program (now it’s the Department of Revenue), the list was alphabetized for easy access. Some of the entities listed for not claiming their money strain credulity. The WI Insurance Commissioner has unclaimed property? Department of Health Services? Alliant Energy? Meriter Hospital? None are old Aunt Edna atop the Griswolds’ station wagon.
Today in Woke Crazy:
“When Alice Sparkly Kat, a queer Chinese Brooklyn-based astrologer, started studying the planets in the early 2010s, there were few books about astrology, let alone ones by people of color,” The Nation reveals. So the poor lost soul has written a book, Postcolonial Astrology: Reading The Planets Through Capital, Power, and Labor. ”
“Throughout their nuanced and intricate analysis, astrology becomes a way to break political and social norms: A look at the relationship of Mars and Venus complicates gendered power dynamics, while a study of the sun becomes a history of surveillance culture and the politics of who gets to be seen.”
Why not? One fake science deserves another.
The South will rise again!
Slaving secessionists kept alive the Lost Cause for a century or more. Some of our Facebook friends advocate the overthrow of the U.S. Congress to redress their own Lost Cause. Sidney Powell told a QAnon event on May 29 that Trump will be “reinstated” as president, with a “new inauguration.” Biden will have to “move out of the WH,” but Trump “won’t get credit for the time he has lost.”
Disgraced former military general Michael Flynn has refuted allegations that he said that a military coup should happen in the US, despite video of him doing so at the same event.
How addled must one be to believe such nonsense?
The Werkes does not purge. Politics being a game of addition, not subtraction, we want everyone to vote Blaska. But Ms. Wood and her ilk are doing Chuck Schumer’s work. William F. Buckley rescued conservatism from the racists and John Bircher “kooks.” Result: Ronald Reagan, who won TWO elections in landslides, not electoral college squeakers, and scored high-digit approval ratings while in office (unlike one of his recent successors).
Quit trying to out-crazy the Left. California now allows transgender-identified male state prison inmates to transfer into women’s prisons based on “individual preference”—no hormones, surgery or time spent living as the opposite sex required, the Wall Street Journal reports. Joe Biden wants that to go national. That’s just crazy!
Tomorrow, Tuesday June 2, is Masks Off Madison Day. This calls for a celebration, some kind of futile gesture, as the frat boys at Animal House demanded. Remember NOW’s public bra burnings? Wanna bet you’ll still see face masks on the bike paths?
Blaska’s Bottom Line: If you have any unclaimed property, donate to Blaska Policy Werkes at this address. Not accepting used face masks or allegedly stolen ballots.
