Tool of the Week: DNC thinks its Milwaukee party is ‘essential’

Empower Wisconsin | March 30, 2020

MADISON — COVID-19 has knocked out a lot of large-scale events and pastimes. 

The NBA, the NHL, the start of the Major League Baseball season. 

Music festivals have been shut down or postponed, including Milwaukee’s annual Summerfest, now rescheduled for September. Broadway is silent, and the 2020 Summer Olympic Games have been pushed back to next year.

Gone, too, are the more personal events — Easter egg hunts, graduations, spring weddings. 

The coronavirus pandemic has locked us in at home and shut down everything not deemed “essential.” 

Apparently the Democratic National Committee thinks its political convention in July is essential. 

As the Milwaukee Business Journal noted late last week, the Democratic National Convention Committee continues planning as if the “four-day extravaganza will happen in downtown Milwaukee July 13-16.” 

While Democrats insist they are “exploring a range of contingency options,” they just can’t quit the idea of their coronation for their presidential nominee (Joe Biden?) and their costly show (Kabuki theater) of unity. 

Such hope — or is it delusion? — continues despite the fact that bookings for hotels, bars, restaurants and other hospitality spaces have stalled.

Biden told CNN the show must go on. 

“I think we ought to be able to conduct our democratic processes as well as deal with this issue, but look, that decision will be made on the state of the nation at that moment,” Biden said. 

It’s hard to have a party with 50,000 people when the state’s governor and top Democrat orders citizens to stay at home and remain at least 6 feet apart from each other. 

Hopefully life gets back to normal soon. But with so many events canceled in the name of public safety, with the grieving not even able to hold a traditional funeral or bury their dead with more than nine loved ones gathered at the gravesite, what kind of tool thinks a political party bash is essential?

The DNC. 

For such thinking, the DNC is Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.

  • You are very mistaken, The real clown in the White House was Bozo from 2008 /2016!

    His criminality in the Russia investigation trying to overthrow a President will surface for all to see. He knew about all of it! His entire reign was corrupt , but he was able to cover it up because his DOJ/FBI/CIA were all corrupt as you will see also.

  • Just like you republicans to jump the gun and run your mouths. I feel quite confident that should this coronavirus continue the democrats will postpone or cancel the convention.
    If the republicans were to be holding a convention for their party I would bet money that it would go as planned.
    That clown in the White House would probably declare the virus over so they could hold their party.
