Tool of the Week: Ali ‘Cops are Nazis’ Muldrew

MADISON — Here’s how bat guano crazy it’s gotten in Madison. Madison School Board member Ali Muldrow compared law enforcement to Nazis and the Dane County Juvenile Detention Center to a concentration camp.  

“I think that (it’s) important to talk about what it is like for students who are arrested at school and end up in the Dane County Jail. We would not talk about the role of the Nazis and act as if the experiences people had in concentration camps is a separate issue.” 

Ms. Muldrow, a first-term school board member who opposes police officers in Madison’s crime-infested schools, has done the unthinkable. She’s ticked off some of the most left-wing liberals in this uberwoke progressive city. 

School Board President Gloria Reyes told the Wisconsin State Journal the Holocaust comparisons were “very far-fetched.” Reyes previously served as deputy mayor in recently ousted Mayor Paul Soglin’s administration. Soglin once gave the key to Madison to communist tyrant Fidel Castro. You don’t get much more woke than that. 

Reyes also once worked in law enforcement. She seems to know what scorched earth social justice warriors don’t: that it doesn’t make sense to blame police for serving and protecting.

Probably not surprising that Muldrow isn’t making a lot of friends among Madison’s men and women in blue. “It is unfortunate at a time when agencies like MPD are bending over backward to increase trust and to enter into meaningful dialogues that will advance collaboration and mutual respect, that a member of our School Board would be inclined to use defamatory rhetoric to make a point,” Police Chief Mike Koval said in a statement. 

In the wake of widespread criticism, Muldrow walked back her comments and issued the standard CMA apology. Koval wasn’t sold on Muldrow’s sincerity. 

You can imagine how well Muldrow’s Facebook rant sat with the Jewish community. Even liberals sympathetic to the broader social justice cause failed to see the connection. Alan Klugman, interim executive director of the Jewish Federation of Madison told the State Journal that, while he sympathizes with incarcerated young people, he had “difficulty equating what they go through with Nazi Germany.”

In late November, the liberal Capital Times acknowledged in a cover story, “Dane County has a juvenile crime problem and few tools to solve it.”

The truth is, Dane County has too many tools working against public safety and common sense. Many of them elect public servants like Madison School Board Member Ali Muldrow — who earns the dubious distinction of being named Empower Wisconsin’s first Tool of the Week.
