WARNING: This blogge has a hair trigger!
Count on CNN to turn low-lifes into civil rights heroes, especially if they have been shot by police who are defending the community. Actual headline:
Exclusive: Jacob Blake speaks out a year later.
‘I have not survived until something has changed’
It’s an exclusive! Something must change so that Jacob Blake can survive! CNN transcribes the thoughts of this conscience of a nation:
Blake is cynical about the progress made in policing, community, and the general hatred over the past year in the aftermath of Breonna Taylor and Floyd killings along with his own shooting.
This piece of progressive propaganda even name checks Derrick Chauvin! Never mind that the Kenosha officer who shot Blake was exonerated.
St. Jacob of Kenosha
“But he’s not without hope,” CNN chirps of the martyred Blake. Only deep into the lengthy piece does CNN relate that Blake was going for his knife. Even later does it reveal that Blake had been charged with domestic violence and sexual assault. It does not disclose against whom but public records tell us it was the very mother who called police about the car Blake was stealing. With their children in it! According to the Kenosha County District Attorney’s report, she feared Blake “was going to take her vehicle and crash it.”
→ Charges pending against Jacob Blake at time of his shooting, including sexual assault.
→ Tony Evers still badmouths police one year after Jacob Blake riots.
How progressives derail public safety
A snippet from the NextDoor social media site until the progressives ban me once again:
Bonnie (2 days ago): They thought they were dropping their daughters off at a safe place (safer than where the live, in the heart of Chicago), and then on day 2 their daughter witnesses someone get shot from the window of her apartment.
Peter L-W (2 days ago): importing problems from “Chicago” is often a by-word used by white people for more black folks coming to Madison.
See how poor Madison progressive Peter L-W was triggered! A neighborhood discussion of public safety (at Elver Park earlier this August 2021 with Police Chief Shon Barnes and a rep from the mayor’s office) will do that to our snowflake acquaintances. Another neighbor noted on NextDoor a similar mass meeting several years ago at a west side church when Soglin was mayor. That meeting followed yet another held at Maria Goretti Church when Dave Cieslewicz was mayor.
We’re now on our third mayor and our third police chief and black kids are being gunned down by drive-by shooters.
The Dane County Board has another conservative!
Among its 37 members! As such can keep Dave Ripp company. WKOW TV-27 reports that Supv. Jeff Weigand proposes to stop the county’s indoor mask mandate until elected officials, like the county board, can weigh in, rather than cede authority to unelected bureaucrats.
Weigand was elected as a write-in on August 10 to fill a vacancy in district just east of Sun Prairie. He is a former wing commander for the 115th Fighter Wing. He campaigned on supporting law enforcement! He also wants to keep schools open for in-person instruction.Pulling the trigger
Legal brain Jonathan Turley says Brandeis University won’t post the usual list of verboten words because “trigger warning” is, itself, triggering!
In addition to “trigger warning,” other violent terminology is listed, including “killing it,” “whipped into shape,” and “take a shot at it.” Rather than use expressions like “killing two birds with one stone,” the school’s Prevention, Advocacy and Resource Center (PARC) suggests “feeding two birds with one seed.”
Blaska’s Bottom Line: In Madison WI, jail inmates are “residents.” It’s the rest of us who are inmates. Jacob Blake would be surviving better if he obeyed the law. Time to ask the Peters and Karens of Madison what they’re doing to stop the drive-by shootings and home invasions.
