It was disheartening to see 1,500 people gather at the Wisconsin State Capitol on Friday with a total lack of regard for the medical advice given so to keep people safe during this pandemic. It was disheartening to see these individuals not understand the science and the data that drives government to take actions such as Evers did with the closing down of businesses to stem the spread of the virus. It was disheartening to see these people have a disregard for the health and well-being of their fellow citizens at a time when bending the curve of this virus is in the best interest of all Wisconsinites.
But it was even more disheartening to see the malcontents and rabble that came out on the Capitol Square and mocked the common sense and decency of the majority of the people who reside in the state. They did that by demonstrating how little they think of their fellow citizens, who have stayed home and away from others to deny the virus the ability to travel. The protesters, without knowing it, also demonstrated how little they respect themselves. No one with any ounce of dignity or self-worth would act in the fashion as these photos demonstrate.
To bring a guillotine to the Wisconsin State Capitol and to scorn the work that the majority of the state’s residents have demonstrated by their adherence to the medical guidelines underscores the true character of the protesters, or should I say, the lack thereof.
