GOP Milwaukee field office vandalized

Empower Wisconsin | Feb. 20,  2020

Is this what Election Year 2020 is going to look like in Wisconsin?

The new Milwaukee field office for the Republican Party of Wisconsin was vandalized late Tuesday night.

Someone splattered paint over the windows, according to photos taken by staff members. White slashes streak the glass, covering up campaign signs for Supreme Court Justice Daniel Kelly and Black Voices for Trump. Black paint obscures much of the window where a Trump-Pence sign hangs, and the word “Scum” was painted on the office’s back door.

GOP officials say they have filed a report with Milwaukee Police. They say there were two election night parties being held at venues across the street from the field office — one for Sen. Lena Taylor, a Milwaukee Democrat who advanced in Tuesday night’s mayoral primary election, and Rep. David Crowley (D-Milwaukee) who was one of two top finishers in the Milwaukee County primary.

Republican Party officials say all was operating smoothly at the Milwaukee office until Tuesday night’s property damage. 

“This level of intolerance from the left won’t change our commitment to reaching voters in every community with our message,” said Andrew Hitt, chairman of the Wisconsin GOP in a statement. “These intimidation tactics will not stop us from telling our positive story of Republican reform in the city of Milwaukee, and we look forward to continuing to engage in the community.”

There is concern about further intolerance against Republicans in a heated election year and as the Democratic Party prepares for its national convention this summer in Milwaukee. 

Last month, Kyle Jurek, a field organizer for Bernie Sanders, told Project Veritas, “Cities (will) burn” if President Trump is re-elected.  

“Be ready to be in Milwaukee for the DNC convention. We’re going to make 1978 [1968] look like a f***ing Girl Scout f***ing cookout,” Jurek said in the video. “The cops are going to be the ones that are getting f***ing beaten in Milwaukee.”

    The barbarians are at the gates. These offices need passive, discreet cameras transmitting wirelessly to off-site storage, then filing charges with pictures and lawsuits against perpetrators. Hit them in the wallet and in the courts. In Milwaukee and Madison legal action may not work so take it higher. And these vandals may have crossed state lines making it federal.

    I was seven-years old and living outside Chicago in 1968. Take these people at their word! They mean business. Bernie Sanders is a Marxist-Communist! This is not what our country is about. Every conservative, thinking Democrat and Independent needs to vote November 3rd. Our future as a free country is on the table! Don’t let the non-informed voter and these violent thugs win. We won the Cold War around 1990, let’s not lose it in the 2020s and beyond. Cooler heads must prevail.
