Walker Campaign Kickoff Event on Sat April 26

at the Wauwatosa Victory Center at 2825 N. Mayfair Road. Suite 107

The event begins at 9:30am for some instruction and then we will be going out and doing targeted door knocks for about an hour to an hour and a half. Then we will return to the office for debriefing and snacks.

It is going to very simple for everyone, even if you have never done this before. We are sending out people in teams, pairing the new people with veterans. There are a few short questions to ask to identify potential Walker supporters.

Please let us know you are coming so we can put teams together. Call James Finley, Field Office Director, at 608-333-5589 or Bill Berdan at 414-507-9443.

Milwaukee’s Black Conservative Coalition

Black Conservative Coalition

It’s the rock in the water and we’re looking forward to ripple effect.  A few phone calls and emails and we start with 10.  Ten conservatives wanting to effect the lives of Milwaukee residents in a positive way.

No more being satisfied with #10 worst run city in America. No more being #8 in the 25 worst cities to be young.  No more accepting a  50% black unemployment rate in the City of Milwaukee.

No more hiding thinking you’re the only conservative in a sea of progressive liberalism.

After Told He’s Racist, UWM Student Rejects Further Diversity ‘Training’

Jason Morgan, a University of Wisconsin-Madison student earning his doctorate there, has told his supervisor he objects to the school’s mandated diversity training for teaching assistants (TAs) because leaders of the first session he attended essentially called him – and the whole class – racist.

The letter, sent by email Sept. 22, states all new TAs in the university’s history department are required to attend one orientation session, two training sessions, and two diversity sessions. Morgan, in his letter, called the first of the two diversity sessions, held Friday, “an avalanche of insinuations, outright accusations, and suffocating political indoctrination (or, as some of the worksheets revealingly put it, ‘re-education’) entirely unbecoming a university of our stature.”
