An attack of Santayana

Wisconsinites Against the Fist posted Friday:

Today my favorite unhinged Madion blogger was making an endorsement for govenor. I am quoting this part of the post because it was the only part that mattered in the whole rant

“We must get back to the point where at the end of the day–whether we agree or not–we can grab a meal together or play a round of golf as friends. Too many stories of hostile Thanksgiving meals due to Walker pitting one group against the other must end.”

I find it odd he blames Scott Walker when it really comes down to the liberal left in this state and in this country being openly hostile. Actually the leadership of the party is guilty of encouraging this hostility. Until the left is able to come to terms with the reality that America wants responsible spending, wants job creations, want secure borders and expect accountability of our politicians, civility is going to be a thing of the past for a majority of them and the left will continue to encourage a hateful intolerant environment in America.

What the unnamed “unhinged Madison blogger” was really saying, of course, is (1) do what I want you to and (2) shut up. A majority of Wisconsin voters have been voting against that since 2012. That can come back if voters vote the wrong way Nov. 6. Recall that George Santayana observed that those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
