MADISON — Joe the Tyrant Parisi, Dane County’s socialist executive, isn’t merely satisfied with confining his fellow citizens in a COVID isolation camp — he wants to import his style of oppression to his neighbors.
As Empower Wisconsin reported last week, Parisi sent an email invite to a dozen of Dane’s surrounding counties asking if there was “interest in forming a regional collaborative to explore ways we can together mitigate the impacts of this pandemic.”
But Parisi isn’t just looking for partnerships and collaborations. He wants local governments in places like Jefferson County (where citizens stood up against overreaching health orders) to get on board with the Public Health Madison & Dane County plan.
This is the same county that has been choking to death its businesses for months. It was cutting restaurant capacity to 25 percent before Gov. Tony Evers made it cool with his latest restrictive order And the county’s COVID case metrics are so lofty that it would virtually take an eradication on the scale of small pox to let Dane County’s people go.
Parisi’s confederacy of dunces would be led by the leader whose county’s health officials all but closed down businesses and schools and still have surging rates of COVID-19.
He’s all about the “crisis,” and insists his kind of liberty-stripping leadership will get rising virus numbers under control.
“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.
What the fear-mongering county executive can’t save his county, or any county, from is the fear he and his liberal pals are pushing.
Joe Parisi is a tool for the crisis narrative.
