Wisconsin brewery owner Kirk Bangstad has had enough of Wisconsin school boards catering to the partisan, astro turfed assault by Trumper parents who are fighting mask mandates and other measures aimed at curbing COVID-19 and its Delta variant. Bangstad created the Minocqua Brewing Company Super PAC to take on school boards who are not following CDC guidelines for school children. From the PAC's statement:
"The Minocqua Brewing Company Super PAC has just embarked on the boldest project we’ve ever taken on—suing every school board in Wisconsin that doesn’t follow CDC guidelines to protect the spread of Covid in schools. [snip]
Wisconsin communities have exploded with the Delta variant because many school districts have dropped all forms of Covid mitigation that were in place last year due to the shrieking hordes of Tucker Carlson-watching zombies separated from their cerebrums and driven only by their lizard brains.
ALL ORGANIZATIONS whose mission is to help kids, teachers, and communities SHOULD BE organizing against this if they aren’t already." (our emphasis)
The statement also contains full-throated appeals for other progressive organizations to take up the fight against "Tucker Carlson-watching zombies" who are endangering school children in order to build a political movement for 2022 and beyond. Some suggested actions from the PAC:
"Organize a recall of the anti-masking nut jobs in your school boards—if they can do it, we can too.
Sign up to volunteer for your county Democratic Party organizations.
If you lead your county Democratic Party organizations, don’t stare at your belly buttons and have lame meetings--start doing important things like phone banking to convince the silent majority that they need to wake up, and strategize on how to take back your school boards, town boards, and county boards.
And finally, make some god-damned NOISE at school board meetings—force the media to SEE YOU TOO, not just the slack-jawed domestic terrorists whose minds have been overtaken by conservative AM radio." (our emphasis)
We need more Kirk Bangstads in our communities, putting their efforts and resources on the line to fight the "nut-jobs" who are ruining the health of our children and our public schools.
