BLM disrupts, shuts down Burlington school board meeting

Empower Wisconsin | Nov. 12, 2020

By M.D. Kittle 

MADISON —Black Lives Matter protesters disrupted and ultimately shut down another public meeting this week, this time the Burlington Area School Board. 

Local law enforcement officers were called in to break up the disorderly end of the meeting, which included a heated discussion on proposed “antiracism” and Black Lives Matter-driven curriculum. 

When the board attempted to move onto other business on Monday night’s agenda, radical leftists, including BLM members from outside the district, began chanting their slogans: Do You Hear Us! No Justice No Peace! And Shut it Down! — which they proceeded to do. 

They got in the faces of curriculum opponents and board members, screaming and demanding members take up their demands. One protester yelled at a board member, accusing him of being “very disrespectful” for taking notes during the meeting, as a young man sat and spun around on a table in the Burlington High School Library. Others jumped up on chairs and waved their fists.  

As board members tried to escape the hatred aimed at them, the room filled with obscenities. The “mostly peaceful” protesters directed much of their wrath at any one who had the audacity to claim that “All Lives Matter.” 

When deputies finally restored order and escorted the demonstrators out of the building, one protester appeared to threaten a law enforcement official, warning, “Don’t put your hands on me. It will be a bad day!” 

Another yelled, “F _ _ _ing sheriffs. Y’all don’t belong here!” 

Another said, “We’ll be right the F_ _ _ outside. Don’t worry.” 

A Burlington resident who attended the meeting told conservative talk show host Vicki McKenna that board members, police, school staff and community members were threatened with violence and intimidation by “outside agitators along with folks who live in this community.” 

“I personally was called … (the N-word), ‘racist piece of sh_ _,’  ‘fu_ _ you and your blue lives,’ just to name a few,” said the resident, who is white. “(I was) Spit on, one individual tried to trip me as I was having a civil dialogue about the 1st Amendment.”

There reportedly were no arrests.

  • Some years back I worked with people with a place up north. They did not like how those municipalities did things so they would go to the local board meetings. They were not allowed to speak as they were not residents of that municipality, only local residents could speak. If you are not a resident of the municipality you have no right to speak unless you’re are invited to speak.

  • Time to stand up. These are scum thugs not from your neighborhood. Just like when I was in school, we kicked these bullies asses and they wet away. They prey on your fear. And the cops need to grow a pair and protect and serve good people not animals like these. Union Gov employee pimps like the teacher who should be terminated and in uniform and a badge that don’t protect.

  • Time to take off the kid gloves – “The criminal code defines assault in two ways. The first instance in which an assault can occur is when a person intentionally applies force either directly or indirectly to another person without their consent. Examples of this kind of assault include punching, pushing, slapping, kicking, or even spitting.” When you threaten to or perform an act of physical violence, the victim can file assault or battery charges against you.

  • most, if not all, of the protestors (paid) are not Burlington or even Racine Cnty residents. If Burlington, school bd and law enforcement continue to ‘soft glove’ these disruptions it will only continue and increase. No tax paying Burlington resident should stand for this type of discord, threats, or harassment, and put immediate stop to it. Accommodating their demands will not solve or stop these disruptions. Only law & order will.

  • Do these “protesters” think parents would want their children in schools which bend to their demands? Vile mouths and disgusting behavior -own it Gov. Evers these are your people. Liberals and “progressives.” Making “progress”
    destroying our culture.
