When Liberals attack

Empower Wisconsin | April 24, 2020

By M.D. Kittle  

MADISON — Some Wisconsin liberals are so hellbent on defending Gov. Tony Evers and his abusive lockdown orders that they’ve taken up spying on opponents and turning them in. 

A leftwing online publication bankrolled by a network of progressive donors seems happy to assist in informing on citizens. 

A Milwaukee-area man who attended last weekend’s “We Want Our Freedom Back” rally in Brookfield says a reporter from the publication contacted him and asked why he was at the demonstration. The reporter then emailed the man’s supervisors and asked whether they had a “comment about an employee going to these rallies against public health orders…”

The man, who works in public housing, now worries that his job may be in jeopardy. 

He spoke to Empower Wisconsin on condition of anonymity, because he fears for his job. Empower Wisconsin also is not identifying the publication, to protect the source’s identity. 

In the email, obtained by Empower Wisconsin, the reporter asks whether the public buildings where the man works have had “confirmed cases of COVID-19.”  The activist journalist was apparently under the assumption that the properties were senior homes, but they are low-income apartments for tenants of various ages. 

The employee said he spoke to the reporter and answered all of his questions. 

“I told him that I wasn’t at the rally for any disrespect, I wasn’t there for a political stance. I was there for the fact that Wisconsin needs to open,” he said. “I have friends losing their businesses. People who have been working their entire lives to get where they are at and it’s just washed away. It breaks my heart.” 

He said he wants to stand up for people who have lost their jobs in pandemic.

Now he’s afraid he’ll lose his position, despite the fact that he has a “spotless” work record. 

“We would be devastated,” he said. It’s not just the paycheck, it’s the insurance for a family of seven. 

As Empower Wisconsin reported earlier this week, left-wingers have picked up the pace on doxing their political and philosophical opponents. 

Well-known Wisconsin conservative grassroots leader Matt Batzel posted photos on his Facebook page praising the rally in Brookfield. His page quickly exploded with left-wing rage.

Batzel, executive director of American Majority, a national nonprofit organization that trains conservative activists and political candidates, said he’s never seen the kind of vitriol and bile that greeted him on his social network account. His attackers called up the university where he works as a part-time lecturer and tried to get him fired. Then, they threatened physical harm. 

“Anyone want to waste a bullet. Target leg wound,” Deb Nelson wrote to the online mob.  

Liberal political candidates have gotten in on the act, too. Mason Becker, Democratic candidate for the 33rd Assembly District seat held by Rep. Cody Horlacher (R-Mukwonago), fired off a tweet advocating doxing those who attended the rally. 

“These 600 people deserve to have their names and addresses published if this happens. Their families, their employers, neighbors, co-workers etc. need to know,” Becker wrote. He later deleted the tweet, but an observant Twitter user took a screenshot.
