When George Floyd died at the knee of a Minneapolis policeman, Wisconsin Governor Evers and Lt Governor Mandela Barnes put together a set of initiatives for police reform. It’s been a couple of months now and those vindictive Wisconsin Republican bastards can’t even , won’t even, discuss the police reform bills. They are being bastards because they can. This is not the first time they have rubbed Governor Evers’ nose in their poop and thrown him out the window.
So who is the butt head in the Republican Party doing this? Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke. Good old boy. He was chosen by Assembly Speaker Robin Vos to chair a task force to investigate “racial disparities, educational opportunities, public safety, and police policies and standards…” (Ho hum…Rome is about to burn but let me see what I can learn about this before I do anything…)
And Jim Steinke is promising to pay you in January (maybe) for
a hamburger your patience today. Wimpy knows how to work the system, doesn’t he?
In the mean time, while the very white Republicans in charge of the Assembly have decided that the riots in Kenosha fit their agenda of sowing racial hatred and disgust, Jim Steinke has accepted the task force mantle and has chosen NOT to name ANYONE to his taskforce. Oh, but he is ALMOST PROMISING there will be something next year. And you can almost take that rubber check to a failed bank.
I am not black but if I was and I heard this cr@p from Jim Steinke and that it had Robin Vos’ approval, I’d be pissed.
The Republican Party clearly wants to run on a law-and-order ticket so they must create flaws-and-disorder to do that. Now that isn’t an accusation. No. That is an observation. Is there another reason for not acting promptly when Seattle, Portland, and other cities have shown what doing nothing will result in?
And, of course, President Trump is coming for a beer summit, oops, sorry, that was a different President wasn’t it? No one knows why (eye-roll here) but Trump’s visit will have something to do with putting those thugs in Kenosha in their place.
