|All the emotions I felt on January 6 came flooding back after watching clips of these officers vividly describe getting bludgeoned by metal objects, fearing for their families while they thought they’d be killed with their own guns, and their disgust for the lawmakers who now claim the violence that happened to them didn’t actually happen.|
Blue lives matter? Apparently not if those blue lives don’t fit into a narrative meant to manipulate Americans into choosing authoritarianism over democracy.
So on this day, in honor of the heroes that protected America who are being sabotaged by the ungrateful Trump Cult in Congress, I’m going to re-dedicate the Minocqua Brewing Company to make traitors Ron Johnson and Tom Tiffany pay dearly at the ballot box in 2022, and to do whatever we can to create a more progressive environment in our neck of the woods to never elect guys like them again.
The Minocqua Brewing Company Super PAC has filed our first report to the FEC, and in that report we will announce that we’ve raised over $221,000 in six months and the average contribution has been $32.
Read that again. The average contribution that raised over $221K has been $32. If that doesn’t make you feel good then you might be made out of stone:)
The report will also show that we’ve spent over $130K of your money on billboards, radio ads, phone calls, and podcasts to shine a light on the lies that the Trump Cult are telling voters in Northern Wisconsin, our state, and the rest of the country.
Yeah, it’s a lot of money, but unfortunately our local media in Northern Wisconsin is weak and too many of our neighbors digest a steady stream of Fox News and insane conspiracy theories online. Until Congress passes an updated Fairness Doctrine to prevent nefarious media companies from spreading misinformation, we need money to broadcast the truth in media deserts like Northern Wisconsin. And as I’ve said time and time again, making Northern Wisconsin more progressive is key to keeping Wisconsin, one of only 9 swing states in the country that affect the outcome of our presidential elections, blue.
But spending money to counteract terrible local media is not enough. We need progressives to organize and RUN FOR OFFICE in the Northern Wisconsin counties that have been neglected by progressives for too long.
