Team Evers silent on COVID and protests

Empower Wisconsin | June 4, 2020

MADISON — In April, just days after Wisconsin’s spring election, state Department of Administration Secretary Joel Brennan fired off to his “team” of state employees an email attacking conservatives for allowing in-person voting to go on during the pandemic. 

Gov. Tony Evers’ big government chief was appalled that the conservative-led Wisconsin Supreme Court had ruled that it was unconstitutional for the power-grabbing governor to take away the right of voters to cast their ballots at the polls — even during a health crisis. To Brennan, the ruling forced Wisconsinites to “choose between voting and their health.” 

“I was embarrassed that we had failed as a State to do what was right to stop in-person voting that day …,” he wrote in his government employee pep talk. 

Apparently the blowhard bureaucrat isn’t as “embarrassed” by the thousands of protesters who have taken to the streets in recent days — many of them vandalizing, looting and burning neighborhoods in pursuit of the radical left’s idea of social justice. We’re not seeing much social distancing between the daily crowds of demonstrators. They are putting themselves and others at risk of a deadly disease, as they go about their business of assaulting police officers, innocent citizens and private and public property. 

But it’s crickets from the DOA chief on the demonstrators forcing a choice between anarchy and their health. 

As Empower Wisconsin noted Wednesday, Evers and his administration are quite comfortable with their double standards because they live by only one standard: The politics of the left. 

Evers and his team like to say the virus knows no border. Based on their silence, they apparently believe their radical allies are immune from COVID-19. They’re certainly immune from the administration’s criticism.
