Polack’s fear-mongering fake News

Empower Wisconsin | Oct. 29, 2020

MADISON — For as much scrutiny as the left-heavy mainstream media pay to the tweets of President Trump and conservatives, they don’t seem very interested in the junk Dem politicians’ are churning out on Twitter. 

Roger Polack, the Democrat running to represent Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District, tweeted a whopper on Wednesday morning. 

“More people in Kenosha County (pop 169K) died from #COVID19 yesterday than in the ENTIRETY of Germany (pop 83 mil),” Polack declared. 

He wasn’t anywhere near the truth.

While Wisconsin did post a record 64 deaths from COVID on Tuesday, according to the state Department of Health Services’ dashboard, Kenosha County recorded zero deaths. 

The nation of Germany posted 30 deaths on Tuesday, according to Johns Hopkins University COVID-19 tracker. 

It is interesting that Polack in his tweet highlighted the CDC site on Twitter, which encourages its readers to Know the facts. 

“We are not rounding the corner,” Polack snidely tweeted, referring to Trump’s comment while campaigning in western Wisconsin this week. “Vote like your life depends on it to send @bryansteil & @realdonaldtrump packing, because it does.”  

U.S. Rep. Bryan Steil’s (R-Janesville) campaign said his challenger is “using coronavirus for his own political gain and is spreading literal fake news instead of the facts and scaring innocent people in Southeast Wisconsin.”  

“It is a shame Polack is preying on the emotions of the most vulnerable in our community,” the campaign said. 

Since the mainstream won’t do it, Empower Wisconsin will: We award Polack 4 Zombies for his fear-mongering tweet.

Crueler than COVID: Forcing the sick and elderly to die alone

  • Q: How many of those alleged Wuhan Bio Weapon Lab Flu deaths actually emanated from the virus? How many involved (1) motorcycle accidents, (2) murders, or (3) other incidents, with the victim coincidentally testing positive for the antibody?
