All Woke Up: What goes around …

Empower Wisconsin | Feb. 11,  2020 

MADISON — It could be a case of just “desserts.” 

Just Bakery, a nonprofit vocational program of Madison-area Urban Ministry, is upset that the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce won’t retain the dessert maker’s sweet services. 

An official from the bakery contends the chamber won’t hire the nonprofit because it’s opposed to a plan to base F-35 fighter jets at Madison’s Truax Field, according to the Isthmus. The chamber has long been a champion of expanding the Air Force’s footprint in Madison. 

The argument from Just Bakery — and what the tone of the article implies — is that it’s not fair for the business group to decline to purchase $4,000 worth of brownies for its April get-together because of a difference of opinion. 

Conservatives felt the same way about the left’s boycott campaigns of businesses that supported former Republican Gov. Scott Walker and/or his policies. Public unions and their members pushed for boycotts on a variety of businesses, including the former M&I Bank and Kwik Trip. Organized labor set up a “Boycott Scott Walker Contributors” page on Facebook. It had tens of thousands of “likes.” 

And you’ll recall that members of the Wisconsin State Employees Union, AFSCME Council 24, “urged” businesses to hang signs in their windows in support of unions. 

“Failure to do so will leave us no choice but (to) do a public boycott of your business,” AFSCME officials stated in a threat letter. 

Business owners experienced their share of disruptions during Act 10 by Big Labor backers who thought such boycotts were more than fair.
