MADISON — Not content with ruining his own local economy, power-grabbing Dane County Executive Joe Parisi last week called on state leaders to ruin what’s left of Wisconsin.
The obtuse liberal, of course, is part of the dream team — including Madison left wing nut Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway and the authoritarian local health department — that has effectively kept much of the county locked down weeks after the Wisconsin Supreme Court declared invalid the Evers administration’s stay-at-home order. Parisi and pals have begrudgingly opened up small swaths of business and social life in the county, but they’ll be damned if they’ll follow any conservative court’s ruling.
The county executive last week told WISC-TV that he wants the state to come up with a new plan to confront the virus that continues to spread in Wisconsin since the state Supreme Court’s ruling. He and the mainstream media (also toolrific) pushed the fear button again Friday, noting that COVID-19 cases were up substantially, as were deaths. They failed to note, or buried, the fact that testing is at record levels, which is bound to find commensurate cases.
Parisi moaned that there’s “no backup plan.”
“We have guidelines in place in Dane County and we’re doing our very best to protect citizens of Dane County, but this virus knows no boundaries and we’re concerned about the folks in Dane County as well as folks across the state,” he said.
You know what else knows no boundaries? The power lust of Parisi and his parasitic liberal pals who just can’t quit government control of citizens’ lives.
For that, Joe Parisi is Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
