Evers panders while Wisconsin burns

Empower Wisconsin | June 3, 2020

By M.D. Kittle 

MADISON — As rioters tear down city streets and shoot and kill cops amid protests for “social justice,” Gov. Tony Evers is calling on the Legislature to quickly pass legislation that would generally outlaw the use of deadly force by law enforcement officers.

In a four-minute, monotone monologue on one-sided racism and white privilege, the Democrat said nothing of the violence and destruction ravaging American communities at the hands of rioters and criminals who have joined the protests against police brutality. Evers spoke of the national grieving over the death of George Floyd, a black man, who died after being subdued by a Minneapolis police officer in a most brutal way. 

“His (Floyd’s) life matters. His family deserves justice. And he should still be alive today,” the governor said, while sitting on a comfortable leather couch in his office, during the video message. 

Indeed. Floyd’s life does matter. His family does deserve justice. He should be alive today. 

So should 53-year-old Patrick Underwood, the federal Protective Service officer murdered during Friday night’s protests in Oakland, Calif. A second officer was also injured in the shooting and was in critical condition Tuesday, the FBI said. 

Evers said nothing of those law enforcement officers, their families, their lives. 

Why would he. The Madison liberal has preached identity politics since before he began his campaign for governor. 

He did push Assembly Bill 1012, legislation he insists will “reform our use of force policies by preserving life and minimizing the use of force.” 

While most agree there is work to be done in stopping police brutality and holding bad cops accountable, Evers and his far-left friends have indicted the vast majority of good police officers everywhere who are doing their best to keep the peace in very violent times. Much of that violence is directed at them, as Evers panders to the wholesale hate crowd.  

“These past few days, millions have gathered together to memorialize George Floyd, to demand change and accountability and to call on this country to keep its promise of justice, fairness and equity,” Evers said, omitting that what also has been memorialzed in the minds of many Americans is the lawlessness and disorder fed by the radical left. 

As Evers challenged his fellow Badger Staters to be “willing to be uncomfortable” in dealing with what he sees as the systemic racism that continues to afflict America, arguably the whitest governor in Wisconsin history took no responsibility for the racial injustice. And make no mistake about it, this liberal governor is keen on tearing down Wisconsin from the inside in pursuit of his version of “equity” and “justice.”   

“We must be willing to face it with clear eyes and open hearts, realizing the folks who look like me have been part of creating, exacerbating, and benefitting from the systems that we must now turn to dismantle,” Evers said. 

Not Evers. The folks that “look like him.”
