It happens every election time. Extreme lefties, in an effort to garner votes, suddenly, dramatically shift to the center or even further, especially on fiscal and crime issues.
Overnight they become consumed with deep concern about your pocketbooks. Instantly, they transform from a crook’s best friend to their worst nightmare.
Admit they’re liberals? Are you kidding! They’re ashamed to make such a concession, in large part for fear they’ll lose votes.
I saw this for a long time in Franklin when Lynn Adelman represented the city in the 28th state Senate district. Adelman was the liberal’s liberal. Never met a tax and spending increase he didn’t get orgasmic over. Took criminals out to lunch. Pinned medals on them.
Then came election time. He started handing out Blue Books and Wisconsin road maps like they were candy. Talked tough about taxes and violent criminals. The radical lefty got re-elected in a very conservative district, only to go back to his loony ways the very next day.
This page in the liberal playbook is playing out in Cudahy where two bloggers are vying for an Aldermanic seat.
One is Randy Hollenbeck, a proud, unabashed conservative, not afraid to openly and honestly divulge his political beliefs and convictions.
The other is liberal hack Zach Wisniewski who apparently is embarrassed by his political affiliation.
Reportedly Wisniewski has been knocking on doors and asking residents how they feel on issues BEFORE admitting his own views. In fact, he never reveals that he’s a liberal Democrat.
In a prepared battle plan, Wisniewski waits to hear what the resident says FIRST. Only then does he speak out, and it’s in agreement with whatever the potential voter says, even if Wisniewski secretly disagrees with whatever he just heard.
It’s a despicable tactic, but not surprising given the slimy tax and spend, union hack source.
Wisniewski could never admit the truth, that’s he’s a slug in the hip pocket of unions and special interests that have been devastating to property taxpayers. He’d get the door slammed in his two-faced puss.
If elected, Wisniewski would not work for the people he’s supposed to work for, the taxpayers. No, his alliance would be with bloated bureaucracies, unions, and special interests that drain property taxpayers. You can kiss any property tax relief goodbye no matter what garbage he’s been feeding you at the doors.
Wisniewski has also used his blog to spew hate speech in a mode that goes beyond ideological debate and like so many other liberal bloggers focuses on personally attacking others who don’t share his radical lefty views. I've been informed he's even taken down blogs to disguise his true politics. Statesmanlike, he is not. This is not the kind of individual most residents of Cudahy would want representing them.
Randy Hollenbeck is a proud, upfront conservative. You know honestly what you are getting. His allegiance will be to the taxpayers, that’s everyone in Cudahy, not just the placard-carrying, yelling, screaming unionistas and public employees.
My blog is now published on CudahyNOW. I’ve known Randy Hollenbeck and have followed his devoted, authentic interest in making Cudahy a better community. He is clearly the best choice in next Tuesday’s election.
