Protasiewicz Remains Silent on Multiple Allegations of Using Racial Slurs

From Wisconsin Right Now. It seems that Wisconsin’s Democrats are returning to their roots when their party championed the use of the “N” word. Spare me your lectures on bigotry… your silence says everything.

Two people who knew Janet Protasiewicz – her former stepson AND a long-time self-described liberal family friend of her ex-husband – told Wisconsin Right Now in recorded interviews that they heard Protasiewicz use racial slurs when she was a prosecutor in Children’s Court. Both men, Jonathan Ehr and Michael Madden, told Wisconsin Right Now that they personally heard Protasiewicz use the “N word” to refer to blacks.


Madden, Protasiewicz’s then stepson, said in a videotaped interview that she used the “N word” to refer to blacks who were involved in court cases while she served as a prosecutor in Milwaukee County Children’s Court, including the parents of black children and blacks accused of crimes.


We asked Protasiewicz’s campaign for comment at 10 p.m. on March 15. She has not responded. She has not denied using racial slurs despite being given an opportunity to do so.

    Liberals are racist. This is no surprise now.
    We have a very racist president.
    And Democrats were for slavery and against voter rights
    Come on Johnny, prove me wrong.

    The obvious political strategy here is to three-monkey this all the way to the end. If nobody hears about the accusations then there’s no reason to call attention to them with denials. WRN does good work, but doesn’t have much reach without at least a little help from the accomplice media and that’s not going to happen. The local NAACP has already dismissed the accusations as being too minor to warrant their attention. The same scenario with Dan Kelly as the offender would have surely generated a vastly dissimilar reaction. That might leave you wondering about the price of silence in these inflationary times.

    Sweet Janet has agreed to a debate early Tuesday afternoon. If she goes through with it we’ll know they’re feeling no heat whatsoever from the WRN reporting.

    Bothers me more that she’s a gold-digger mean drunk, frankly. And that she appears to be mentally unstable.

    But then, she’s a Lefty, so it all kinda fits.

    Liberal social media mob:
    She used the N word multiple times? KILL HER! String her up!!!
    Liberal media handlers:
    She is a Democrat so she has the right to use that word because she is not racist by liberal definition.
    Liberal mob:
    Nothing to see here? Okay…

    Been almost a week so far and the only mention I’ve seen anywhere in print is a very short article at WisPolitics. And that seems to have only appeared because Kelly commented on the issue. How long does it take to produce attack ads for both radio and television? The window is closing and she’s too slick to commit an unforced error here. Pubbies need to go ballistic with this and force Protasiewicz to respond before the early vote is done. They’ve been given a gift. Use it.

    Even if they do get ads out there, I don’t think they’re really going to matter. From my observations this election is about one or two issues (abortion, the 2020 election) and the vast majority of Wisconsinites don’t really care beyond that.

    We are long past D’s or R’s deciding who to vote for based on character.

    Sure there are a few independents this may sway, but not enough to move the needle.
