Time to get tough ‘on all the bulls**t that has destroyed our city.’
After defunding police by $120 million last year, and the resultant pooping and smash and grabbing, the mayor of San Francisco has come to Jesus.
“It’s time the reign of criminals who are destroying our city, it is time for it to come to an end,” Mayor London Breed said. “And it comes to an end when we take the steps to more aggressive with law enforcement. More aggressive with the changes in our policies and less tolerant of all the bullshit that has destroyed our city.”
What I’m proposing today and what I will be proposing in the future will make a lot of people uncomfortable and I don’t care,” she said. “At the end of the day the safety of the people of San Francisco is the most important thing to me. We are past the point where what we see is even remotely acceptable.”
Mayor Breed also supports the recall of three school board members who spent more time renaming schools than opening them to students. She also supports the recall of SF D.A. Chesa Boudin.
→ More good news! Even The Nation is forced to acknowledge that “Even in Blue states, Critical Race Theory panic is spreading … even in supposedly liberal bastions such as California.”
“Panic”? Leave it to progressives to patronize the citizenry.
→ Still MORE good news! Again in The Nation: “Europe’s War on Woke: Why elites across the Atlantic are freaking out about the concept of structural racism.”
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Conservatism is winning across the land. If we can win in San Francisco …
A positive sign. Could Madison be next? Me thinks not, but one can hope.

It is going to have to get a LOT worse here before most people will consider rousing themselves from their slumber.
SF CA has been practically destroyed in slo-mo for many years.
It’s amazing how a progressive can eventually turn into a teeth-baring, growling, raging law-and-order lions when they have to face the real life consequences of their ideology. Takes ’em long enough though.
We’ve got to get rid of alders like Bennett, Conklin, Currie, Furman, Foster, Cole, Heck, Evers, Martin, who CONTINUE to want to defund MPD because regressive Dane, BLM, Urban Triag, and Freedom Inc TELL THEM TO.
If we cut the head off of the snake, the problem disappears.

And who will wield the axe that beheads the snake? The progressive sheep so horrified at the prospect of being called racist that they jump eagerly through every hoop put in front of them by BLM. Freedom, Inc. and their ilk? The ones that comprise about 90% of Madison voters?

Well this should be a glimmer of hope. But after a very close aquitance of mine stationed at fort mccoy currently on active duty. Reports that over half that were evacuated are not vetted, came under false names, they have routinely found actual Taliban were brought into the u.s.a and the upper are just washing their hands and releasing into the country.
In these same reports, they have schools that were setup but repeatedly vandalized with extreme islamic mantras with spray paint. They repeatedly these folks not to drink from those marvelous fountains of water … toilets.
If u think there will not be ied attacks or worse coming in retribution for so many people killed by the u.s.a you are are delusional. Meanwhile washington purposely asleep at the wheel.
The violence we are seeing now will be in addition to these radicals that want nothing to do with our melting pot.
Can we win here in Madison WI? The “WOKE” response would be:
“We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in the Statehouse, we shall fight on the lakes and rivers, we shall fight with growing protests and growing chants in the air, we shall defend our Isthmus, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the lakefronts, we shall fight on the Beltline, we shall fight in the parks and in the streets, we shall fight in the public meetings; we shall never surrender.”
“When all is burnt to the ground, the “woke” will still be flicking their Bics.”

You forgot a phrase: “We shall fight in Whole Foods and in the local micro-breweries; we shall fight in the upscale high-rises on East Washington Avenue.”

AND, obviously the SCHOOLS !
You toss the word “woke” around like you really know what it means.
And you accuse us of not knowing what “woke” means like every other leftist on social media.
It’s a bit of a stretch to say that progressives are abandoning the woke movement just because one mayor on the lunatic fringe is backtracking on one issue (and without admitting that the “reign of criminals who are destroying [her] city” came about directly because of her harebrained efforts to demonize and disempower law enforcement). One apostate does not a counter-revolution make. And it took the organized looting of upscale shops in Union Square–as opposed to Walgreens in less affluent neighborhoods–to make her see the light. Even fanatical ideologues can sometimes see the advantages of a strategic retreat, but they’ll never give up on their grander goals of transforming this country in to a Marxist state. Defeating them in the next election cycle is a good first step, but the ultimate goal should be to destroy them root and branch long before Obama’s third term ends.

Agreed, san fran getting tough on crime is all talk and no action. So they can say see we tried it your way it failed
I don’t even give them that much credit. It’s about winning elections and maintaining power.
Just checked next door site. People from all over Dane County are still on the root cause bandwagon. It’s going to be awhile. Madison lefties are slow to learn.
It’s a religion with them. Don’t want to sound pessimistic, but I just don’t see Madison having an epiphany. Even if they do, they won’t admit it.
It would take a lot to change Madison at this point, and like Gary said above, who exactly will be leading that change?
Come to Jesus moment? Probably sees the writing on the wall for 2024 and realizes Progressives crime policies are a disaster.
Remember, we’re dealing with zealots & politicians here. From Defund the Police to this? Nah, they don’t have changes of heart quite that easily.
“If we can win in San Francisco can we win here in Madison?” Madison, the city that in order to appear relevant on the national scene, will outwoke the most liberal of American cities.
How do we win?
I would say neighbor to neighbor conversations would be the best.
Point out to your progressive neighbors that in the city of Chicago there have been some 826 murders so far this year. https://heyjackass.com/
Point out to them that just like Chicago, despite the progressive policies of our current county board, city council, school board and so on, these progressive polices have not reduced the amount of crime in our fair city just like they have not reduced crime in Chicago. That these progressive policies are the same progressive policies as mayor lightfoot in Chicago has adopted and one only has to look at the mess their in to see what progressivism has done for that city.
Ask them this question: Do you want to live in a SHIT HOLE?
Used to be that you could go to places like the Garfield Park neighborhood in Chicago and see the sites, experience the night life and stay in a hotel or B&B and not worry about your safety. The wife and I used to do it all the time when we were younger. Now, there is no way I would even go down there.
I used to live 45 minuets right outside the city of Chicago. I loved going down into the city to visit cousins, aunts and uncles on my moms side of the family. Wouldn’t go there now for all the tea in China.
Don’t want Madison to become the same place I left before I came here.
The writing is on the wall. This town is either going to clean up it’s act or become another Chicago. It is that simple.
Chicago? May as well be Mars. People with the luxury beliefs will not change until the shit hits the fan in their backyard. Chris Palmer was exhibit A:
Madison won’t change until the professors in the Monroe St. neighborhood are personally affected by the bullshit.
Somewhat encouraging, but I’ll believe it when I see it. I visit San Francisco often enough and I couldn’t believe how much it had degenerated in such a short time last time I went through. Some areas have been spared becoming a cesspool (so far), but they are fewer and farther between. Last time I was in the area, I chatted with a local couple (that I’m certain weren’t conservative voters) that had fled the city and even they were fed up with the politics there.

And a party that has become the equivalent of a radical fundamentalist religious cult with a leader making it a cult of personality. The penalty for challenging the cult leader? For apostasy? Shunning and attempts at severe penalties akin to excommunication.
