MADISON — Marathon County fancies itself as a diversity-embracing place.
That’s why the north-central Wisconsin county’s Board of Supervisors is hastily moving through a white-loathing “No Place for Hate” resolution.
The “open, inclusive and diverse” measure aims to ensure “everyone is welcome” within Marathon County, as long as the white residents understand that they are white supremacists.
“Marathon County acknowledges that white privilege and systemic racism exists across our nation and within our community, such that diversity is not sufficiently represented within our policies, practices, resource material, budgetary considerations” … the resolution, passed this week by the board’s executive committee, states.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, whites make up more than 90 percent of Marathon County’s 135,962 residents. Too much white privilege, it seems, for the county’s mostly white leaders.
But Marathon County will continue to “celebrate and embrace its rich multicultural heritage without the fear of intimidation or hate-motivated violence against its residents,” the resolution assures. It will make sure that its white residents accept the guilt for all of America’s woes since the first European explorers began popping in unannounced.
So therefore be it resolved that the supervisors of this woke Northwoods county condmemn “hate-based activity or conduct,” whatever diversity experts deem that to be, and that “every attempt shall be made to remedy such disparities,” whatever that may require taxpayers to fund.
You see, Marathon County’s commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity is such that it will “be reflected in county affairs at all levels: in the local government culture; in behavior and actions of individual staff members, in the actions and perspectives of the County Board of Supervisors, and in the ways in which all policies are developed, researched, and implemented, in order to best serve all residents of Marathon County.”
Whatever that means.
