Madison Activists Protest at DA’s Home

Radical leftists eat their own.

Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne is highlighting his identity as a Black man and his family’s roots in the Civil Rights Movement after protesters came to his house for the second time in a month Saturday, this time demanding that charges be dropped against two Black men and calling Ozanne a racist.

Ozanne said Sunday that scores of protesters with speakers, generators and a bullhorn showed up around 7:30 p.m. Saturday and stayed for about six hours blasting music, shouting profanity, chanting slogans, and calling him and even his family a racist — all in the name of pressuring Ozanne to drop charges against Kelsey Nelson and Gregg James.

Nelson, 30, is charged in the looting of Goodman’s Jewelers during the first night of protests in Madison on May 30 over the death George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody five days earlier. James, 23, is one of three men accused of making threats at a State Street bar in June.


A flier distributed at the “Black Out Block Party” Saturday does not name the group sponsoring it, but was instead aimed at letting Ozanne’s neighbors know he’s the DA and urging them to call his office to demand that charges against Nelson and James be dropped. It’s similar to a call to action put out on July 3 by Sawyer Johnson, a leader in the Madison chapter of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, that identifies Nelson, James and two others recently arrested as “Black revolutionary activists.”


Johnson responded to requests for comment via Facebook on Sunday night with derogatory memes.

Get this…

With activists questioning the cash bail system or claiming people are being held in jail simply because they can’t make small bond amounts, Ozanne said, “we release about 82% of people on signature bonds.”

    This is what is left of the “Tolerant” left.  If you do anything the mob doesn’t like, your racist and attacked as such.   It’s just a small part of Liberal Privilege.

    it seems like an “all you can eat buffet”.

    Liberals are awful.

    And yet they are harmless protestors according to jjf.
    These thugs could protest by the courthouse, police or sheriff’s dept but they choose to intimidate and harass at people’s homes.
    Nothing but thugs. Especially the thugs the thugs want released.

  4. jjf

    Mar, do you do this sort of thing just to attract attention?

  5. Mar

    What part is wrong, jjf?

  6. jjf

    Well, there’s Jason’s confusion of “queue” and “cue.”

    And then there’s your invocation and psychic interpretation of what I must be thinking about this post – that I hadn’t commented on.  100% pure attention seeking behavior.

    I’m thinking of a number.  What is it?

  7. Jason

    Both work in this context foust, I don’t expect you to understand that.


    BTW, I’d focus on parsing semantics too, with videos like this coming out and turning your statements about innocent and peaceful protesting into shit sammiches.  Videos like these are trending little man.


  8. jjf

    Weird, they didn’t show the wounds on the protesters.

  9. Mar

    You think its time to put down the meth pipe, jjf?

  10. jjf

    Well thank you, Mar, for using my chosen name here, and not thinking that doxxing is civil behavior.

  11. Jason

    Simple Johnny, but impossible for your addled mind to grasp… there weren’t any protesters in that video.

  12. Jason

    Linking to some random and biased twitter feed, best of the best as we have come to expect from you idiot.   We all see just how deep your partisanship is.

  13. Mar

    Right, jjf, that “expert” knows exactly what was going on.
    I could say that the injury was caused by a demonstrator who tried to give the cop oral sex and missed.
    It has as much accuracy as your post.
    Now you ate getting into Lying Pat territory.
    Still waiting for an intelligent post from you.
