Tool of the Week: ‘Not smart’ Janet

Madison — Liberal politicians think they know what’s best for you. They think you’re too stupid to know better.

Just ask Senate Minority Leader Janet Bewley.

The Mason Democrat thinks what most elitist Democrats think but usually don’t say.

Bewley said it.

Last week at a at a Wisconsin Counties Association Roundtable, Bewley shared a story about communities in her northern Wisconsin district that couldn’t afford to operate an ambulance service.

“It’s a mandated service and they can’t do it. They’re heart sick and begging for help,” she said.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) asked if the communities had taken the matter to referendum. Bewley said not yet, but it wouldn’t much matter. The “voters will turn it down, then they’re going to be in the same position they’re in right now,” she said.

Okay, but …

“So, if the voters turned it down, doesn’t it mean they don’t support what you’re advocating for?” Vos asked.

“No, it means they’re not smart,” Bewley sharply responded.

And there it was. The truth. Bewley said out loud what she and her liberal political colleagues generally keep to themselves.

And then she said more.

She summed up the left’s elitist attitude on governance, saying the state should step in when local residents err in their judgment. In short, the state helps those who don’t have the good sense to help themselves.

“Sometimes we have to do things to allow them the ability, we, as a state, have to do things that are part of the state’s responsibilities that should not always be linked to one group… If they can’t provide it, don’t we have some collective responsibility to help those communities that depend on volunteer emergency services?” Bewley stammered.

Rarely are liberal politicians so direct about their elitist, big government beliefs.

Politically, Bewley’s little moment of truth was “not smart.”

But her exposed sentiments earn her high dubious honors as Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
