‘Sound of freedom’ gives Madison liberal a headache

Empower Wisconsin | Dec. 9 2019

By Adam Jarchow

Madison’s most liberal liberal, State Rep. Chris Taylor last week tweeted (pandered) that her visit to an Air Force Base in Arizona gave her a headache because it was “nauseatingly loud.” For most Americans the sound of a U.S.A. fighter jet is “the sound of freedom.” But to Taylor it’s nauseating and headache-inducing.

The U.S. Air Force is considering basing F-35 fighter jets at Madison-based Truax Field home. Taylor has been bloviating about her opposition to that potential for months, making big show “fact-finding” trips to Air National Guard bases in Vermont and Arizona. 

Did she really get a headache from the noise, or was that just the phantom pain of political pandering? We know this, before Taylor’s constituents forced her into her wacky opposition to the F-35, she previously complained in a now-deleted tweet that money was being diverted from Truax Field for a border wall.

For a liberal Madison state representative, the only thing worse than securing the border is securing the country with a fighter jet.

Democrats whine and complain that they aren’t in the majority because of “gerrymandering.” The real reason is because they oppose things like securing the border and supporting the military. From my experience, those positions don’t play well with voters outside of “the 77 square miles surrounded by reality” — AKA Madison.
