In the years I have been following politics in Wisconsin, I have never seen the Democratic Party of Wisconsin go to a new, classless low. I was a proud volunteer of the Milwaukee Tea Party who could of have watched the Badgers on TV beat Wofford last Saturday, but I volunteered to make the event a success for Americans for Prosperity.
There is no place in Wisconsin’s policy debate for any political leader in any party to label people who have serious questions on the state of affairs in Madison to label them as members of the KKK. Over the past week, Mike Tate the recently elected Chairman of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin has embarrassed his state and his party with his juvenile and vulgar statements towards Milwaukee Tea Party attendees and taxpayers who are growing skeptical of the Democrat agenda. This was evident in a campaign fundraising e-mail to party supporters. What is more appalling is that Lt. Governor Barbara Lawton who is running for Governor is supporting Mike Tate’s vulgar behavior. Former Congressman and Oklahoma football legend J.C. Watts said this quote well on Democrats when they lose on the issues: “when Democrats can’t win on the issues they will call you a racist or bigot or they will sue you.”
The voters and taxpayers of Wisconsin right now are seeing the true audacity of the Democrat Party of Wisconsin. The audacity of their policies destroying Wisconsin common sense and Wisconsin values. It is the conduct of Mike Tate that people will remember at the polls next year. People in Wisconsin next year at the ballot box will remember this statement:
“These are extremist elements pulling together, distinct vocal minorities that frankly don’t believe in this country. They don’t want to see more people have access to quality affordable health care; they don’t want clean air and water. They fundamentally don’t understand how the American government, economy and capitalism work.” -Democrat Party of Wisconsin Chairman Mike Tate
I appluad Republican Party of Wisconsin Chairman Reince Preibus to demand an apology from the Democrats for their vulgar conduct. As taxpayers are becoming more skeptical of the Democrat agenda we need to make sure that they debate the issue and not resort to using the race card. There is no place for a race card to be used in politics and if Chairman Tate continues to go down the low road he should for the good of his state and his party to resign.
