Leave it to Evers: Tony’s Guarded plan for Rittenhouse verdict

MADISON —Gov. Tony Evers says he’s mobilized about 500 Wisconsin National Guard troops to be ready just in case things get rough in Kenosha following the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict.

Just think what might have been had Evers quickly sent enough Guard members to stop Kenosha from being ravaged by rioters in August 2020.

Perhaps there wouldn’t have been the need for a homicide trial more than 14 months later.

In a press release, Evers said his administration continues to be in “close contact with our partners at the local level to ensure the state provides support and resources to help keep the Kenosha community and greater area safe.”

If only the governor had been so committed to securing the city in the hours and days after a Kenosha police officer shot Jacob Blake, a black man who repeatedly resisted arrest and reached for a knife during a domestic incident.

Evers’ first order of business was to fire off an incendiary statement without having many of the facts. It was so bad, law enforcement officials asked him to stop because he was only making a horrible situation worse. It was like throwing gasoline on a fire.

After a first night of violence, when rioters looted and smashed their way through downtown Kenosha, Evers finally sent in the Guard — 125 members. It wasn’t nearly enough. It took him two days to declare a state of emergency. By that time, the Lake Michigan city was under siege. He doubled Guard presence to 250 on what turned into the third day of riots — the day Kyle Rittenhouse shot dead two rioters and injured another. Rittenhouse claims it was self-defence; prosecutors have charged him with murder. It wasn’t until three days after the riots began that Evers authorized 500 troops to deploy to the badly damaged city.

Early on,  Evers rejected federal law enforcement assistance from then-President Donald Trump in what clearly was an act of political pettiness.

“Our county is under attack. Our businesses are under attack. Our homes are under attack. Our local law enforcement agencies need additional support to help bring civility back to our community,” the Kenosha County Board of Supervisors wrote to the governor.

Has Evers’ learned from the violent consequences of his inaction? The Democrat’s show of “force” comes with his usual placating of the radical left.

“I urge folks who are otherwise not from the area to please respect the community by reconsidering any plans to travel there and encourage those who might choose to assemble and exercise their First Amendment rights to do so safely and peacefully,” he said in the statement.

What a weenie.

  • What a shame that neighbors and friends have to “ready to protect “ the people of Kenosha, in case someone or group of people may not like the decision a duly appointed jury will render. You are right the good governor is a “weenie”.

    Imagine if he and “du Mayor” did that in Madison, people’s business and property would have been safe. Again where was the weenie when things went south in Kenosha, an old well respected community? What is needed for these situations is water cannon law. Warn them and wet them. It cures many a situation early.
    Well I guess this good be an early re-election tool. If the citizens of this state elect this weenie again it will be open season.

    Wake up America- Take our Country Back and TEACH ALL OF THESE POLITICAL PEOPLE THAT THEY WORK FOR US NO MATTER WHAT PARTY THEY SAY THEY REPRESENT.
