Political parasite Parisi looks to consolidate power

Empower Wisconsin | Oct. 8, 2020

By M.D. Kittle 

MADISON — After gushingly praising Gov. Tony Evers’ latest business-killing health order, Dane County Executive Joe “the parasite” Parisi is trying to bring his oppressive style of governance to his neighbors.

The liberal commandant of Stalag Dane County sent a “Dear Fellow County Official” email Tuesday to his government brethren in surrounding southcentral and southwest Wisconsin counties. He wants to gauge their “interest in forming a regional collaborative to explore ways we can together mitigate the impacts of this pandemic.” 

A COVID-fighting confederacy of power-grabbing dunces, if you will, aimed at controlling an uncontrollable virus that the vast majority of its victims recover from. It would be led, of course, by Parisi, the leader of the most restrictive county in the state. This governing genius and his overreaching health officials all but closed down businesses and schools and still have surging rates of COVID-19. 

“Where there’s a will to confront this virus, these orders are effective and I’d like to start a dialogue with your county about the merits of pursuing similar public health orders that are tailored to the needs of your community,” Parisi wrote to officials in Columbia, Crawford, Dodge, Grant, Green, Iowa, Jefferson, Juneau, Lafayette, Rock, Sauk, and Vernon counties. 

Parisi’s Super Friends email went out not long after Evers announced his latest liberty-killing order cutting capacity in public places to 25 percent. His edict, which goes into effect this morning at 8 a.m. and remains in place through Nov. 6, does what Dane County’s strict health ordinance has done for the past few months. 

“In his announcement of a new state order today, Governor Evers recognized the need for local units of government to work at a regional level on approaches best for our communities. With every indication this pandemic may persist over the course of the next year, now is the time for us to come together and act,” Parisi said. 

State Sen. Steve Nass (R-Whitewater) on Wednesday urged local officials “not to take the approach pushed by Dane County.” 

“We need local governments to work cooperatively with their citizens and not take the dictatorial-style employed by Dane County,” Nass wrote in an email to county board officials. “Forcing your residents to resist local government edicts or launch legal challenges will only make the situation worse in the long term.”

Nass asserts Parisi is trying to create a “de facto” regional government to “establish potentially illegal regulations on individuals and businesses.”

“Dane County is attempting to export its heavy-handed governing style to neighboring counties without the input of citizens in each of your counties,” the senator wrote. 

Evers’ emergency orders issued since the May Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling struck down his ability to extend such health declarations without the Legislature’s consent are being challenged in court. That includes his statewide mask mandate. As Nass notes, the Wisconsin Supreme Court has issued an injunction against the public health staff in Dane County in a lawsuit challenging a health order closing schools to in-class education. 

Parisi says this is no time to play politics. Of course the political parasite who has preached the gospel of fear and crisis during the pandemic voiced no concerns about the perils of COVID-19 when left-wing elections officials in Dane County’s capital brought out thousands of people for the recent vote harvesting “Democracy in the Park.”
