Dem candidate Emily Siegrist’s uncivil ‘civility’ 


Empower Wisconsin | Oct. 26, 2020

MADISON —Emily Siegrist, candidate for the 24th Assembly District, promises to be the poster child for civility and bipartisanship if voters elect her to the Wisconsin Legislature.

In the era of Donald Trump and his controversial tweets, vows of civility are intended to resonate with suburban women in conservative strongholds like Waukesha County where Siegrist is challenging incumbent Republican Rep. Dan Knodl.

So what does Emily Siegrist’s Twitter account reveal about her commitment to civility?

A lot.

A review of Siegrist’s Twitter activity finds that she has “liked” more than two dozen of the most vile and vulgar tweets found on the social network.

Siegrist fancied a tweet celebrating a decal on a truck declaring, “F_ _ _” Trump And F_ _ _ You for Voting For Him.”

In February 2019, she liked a video of a woman jogging past a Trump fundraiser in Fox Point chanting, “Rapist racist misogynistic Nazi.” Classy.

In fact, the candidate who believes she has corned the market on civility has put her stamp of approval on a lot of tweets likening the president of the United States and other Republican politicians to fascists, Nazis, dictators and the Taliban.

Siegrist also endorsed tweets that refer to Wisconsin Republicans as d–ks, d—ches and pieces of sh–t. She liked tweets calling U.S. Senators Ted Cruz and Susan Collins the c-word and “a dumb f _ _ _ing biatch” respectively.

After her failed run against Knodl in November 2018 Siegrist claimed that she “ran on bringing civility and kindness” to Wisconsin politics.

“I ran on bringing civility and kindness along with working across the aisle,” Siegrist said. “@SpeakerVos, @Wisgop, and @DanKnodlforWI are what’s wrong with politics. It isn’t about the people of Wisconsin anymore. #2020.”

Emily Siegrist should civilly and kindly explain why she liked a tweet deriding conservatives with this riddle: “What has 998 legs, 163 teeth, and 3 brain cells.? The front row of a trump rally.”

Perhaps civility is in the eye of the beholder.
