Tool of the Week: Satya the phony

Empower Wisconsin | April 27,  2020

MADISON — This week’s tool is truly gagworthy.

Madison Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway, whose social justice policies have put police in greater danger, is suddenly worried about their safety.

Her political heart is breaking.

In a letter, Rhodes-Conway expresses her gratitude for the “dedicated and selfless service” police officers, firefighters, and EMTs provide to the people of Madison — particularly during the pandemic.

Fine.

And then she gets icky.

“Today and tomorrow, our city will be an unwilling host to two completely stupid events, which I know you are prepared for,” Rhodes-Conway wrote, referring to Friday’s ReOpen Wisconsin rally against Gov. Tony Evers’ overreaching lockdown orders and Saturday’s annual UW student street kegger, the Mifflin Street Block Party. 

The mayor apologizes that “these protesters and partiers have little respect for you and their own health.” She wishes the city could do more to stop them from congregating and laments that the constitution trumps Evers’ social-distancing order.

“There is nothing we can do, of course, to stop a 1st Amendment demonstration on the Capitol grounds or elsewhere for that matter,” Rhodes-Conway wrote. She noted the city, the university, Public Health and police worked together to shut down the block party, but could only limit it in the end.

“Thank you for everything you do to keep our city safe, especially in the face of events like these,” the mayor wrote.

Now she’s effusive with praise. Since taking over last year, the far-left mayor has repeatedly alienated law enforcement — from refusing to fill dozens of desperately needed police positions to rushing to accuse Madison officers of brutality before the facts were in.

Kelly Powers, president of the Madison Professional Police Association, has said the union’s membership “collectively does not feel much of any support from the mayor.”

Maybe they’ll feel differently after they read the mayor’s email of sappy gratitude.

“An email feels entirely inadequate, but all the other ways I can think of to show my appreciation are contrary to the public health recommendations, so please just know how sincere my thanks are. And please take care of yourselves,” Satya the saccharine  wrote.

Is she suggesting a group hug?

Yikes. Makes you want to throw up in your mouth a little bit, doesn’t it?

For such self-serving ickiness and so much more, Madison Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway is our Tool of the Week.

  • Lol, Madison Police are stupid anyhow. If you watch the news how many times for you hear, “Madison Policr need your help”. Not to mention the Madison police DO NOTHING to help curb reoffenders who are released from prison and continue to commit crimes. Just look up the name Michael Winch. He served decades in prison over his life and when he’s released he continues to commit felony after felony. He’s still out in the street on probation. In fact this guy committed felonies before he reported to his probation agent for the first time after sentencing for a slew of felonies (all were dropped down except for one). Even after that he committed more felonies and is in the middle of a trial for one and he still hasn’t been revoked. That’s one example of many infractions by Madison police and the district attorney’s office that fails Madison over and over again.
