Well, it’s Wisconsin spring elections season and that means voters will choose from a whole slate of non-partisan local government races like city councils and school boards. Sure, non-partisan sounds good, but, as the last few years have taught us, there is no such thing as a non-partisan race. This has never been more true than it is today.
Over the years, the left pushed for ‘non-partisan’ local races in order to have a place to hide and stalk their ideological prey. Then they slowly came out of the weeds leaving once purple cities like Wauwatosa, for example, with hyper-leftist social justice warrior majorities on the City Council and on the School Board.
As Wauwatosa has been seeing firsthand over the years, it only takes one vociferous hyper-partisan social justice warrior to push leftist ideology, under the guise of ‘good intentions’ and leave the rest of our elected officials either fully supporting or quietly cowering in fear of being ‘canceled.’ Of course, I am referring to a former disgraced alderman Heather Kuhl.
In just a short few months on the city council, Wauwatosa saw several extreme WOKE proposals. Things like making Wauwatosa a sanctuary city, making the ‘equity’ committee a sanctioned committee, or demonizing the Wauwatosa police chief and officers. Of course, she hid her extremist ideology behind fluffy names like calling her sanctuary city proposal a ‘safe city’ proposal. How WOKE of her.
Even though she resigned in shame, she was not alone. In Wauwatosa, extremists not only occupy many council seats, but they also occupy the ENTIRE school board except for one seat. Wauwatosa schools have seen elements of extremist ideology like critical race theory (CRT) and the radical ‘Trans’ agenda creeping into the curriculum for years. Of course, they are not calling it CRT; they are using fluffy words like ‘equity’ and ‘inclusion.’ Wauwatosa is still purple, but their local government is DEEP BLUE.
Sadly, Wauwatosa is NOT alone. This is everywhere, Menomonee Falls, Brookfield, Waukesha, EVERYWHERE.
Wisconsin Spring Elections
Now, back to the Wisconsin spring elections. How are extreme local government officials even elected? Well, as I said before, they hide behind the ‘non-partisan’ label. Clearly, they do not campaign on their ‘wokeness,’ they act like they are just ‘concerned’ citizens just looking to serve while hiding who they really were.
However, liberal incumbents throughout the state know their days in office may be numbered because of an absolute groundswell of people saying they have had enough of the extremist ideology in local government and our schools.
As we have seen with the massive overreach by the fringes over the past few years, they are desperate to pass anything they can while they struggle to keep their stranglehold on power.
What does all this mean?
It means there are droves of extremist left-wing liberals who are seeking to head this off by running for office to prevent a continued tsunami of ordinary people from winning ‘their’ seats.
What concerns me is not that they are running; surely it’s their right. The concern is that they will successfully hide behind the ‘non-partisan’ label and keep our city councils and school boards under their totalitarian grip, or regain the boards they lost.
As I said, people like this get elected because voters are not making informed decisions. Sure, the candidates seem nice enough, until they get elected. Then, they bite!
My goal here is not to tell you who to vote for but to help you make an informed decision.
You see, a conservative is proud because conservative ideas are common-sense ideas. Liberals, on the other hand, hide what they believe because they know that most people would disagree with them if they were honest.
The backlash against leftist ideology in recent months is living proof of this.
Over the next several days, you will get that knock on the door. And when the ‘nice’ person on the other side tells you that they are running for office and would like your vote, ask them about their party or ideology. Trust me on this.
A conservative will usually tell you proudly: They are conservative; of course this depends on where you live. In some places, Conservatives are fearful of the fierce cancel culture out there. On the flip side, a liberal will ALWAYS divert the conversation and tell you that they are ‘non-partisan,’ and it’s a ‘non-partisan’ race.
So, when you hear the word ‘non-partisan,’ they are likely that extremist wolf in sheep’s clothing and, as we have seen, their bite will hurt us all.
