The Milwaukee County district attorney who released Waukesha mass murderer Darrell Brooks is a strong believer in the ruthless use of police power to lock people up.

But only if they’re Republican. 

John Chisolm may be a new name to most Americans after he freed Brooks on just $1000 bail aftr his arrest for attempting to murder a woman with his car, which he then used to kill at least six more people.

But he’s been known in Wisconsin for years as the unhinged liberal activist who praises the work of George Soros and spent millions on a witchhunt against Republican governor Scott Walker, until the state Supreme Court shut it down for being baseless and partisan.

“Milwaukee’s District Attorney John Chisholm, one of a number of DAs around the country whose campaigns Mr. Soros has helped bankroll, has worked for the last 15 years to change the city’s approach to incarceration,” The Washington Times Kelly Sadler writes. 

“In 2018, he tweeted how Milwaukee was making a commitment not to keep individuals held on cash bail in jail. When the pandemic hit, Milwaukee’s “woke” Community Justice Council recommended criminals needed to be let out of jail immediately. The city obliged, reducing its jail population by about 40%.”

“Mr. Chisholm has also used his Twitter feed to cheer-on other Soros-endorsed district attorneys around the country, including San Francisco’s Chesa Boudin,” Sadler adds.

But when it comes to conservatives, Chisolm believe in ruthlessly using police power to suppress political opponents, including the use of paramilitary raids.

George Will, writing in 2014, called it “the nastiest political tactic of the year.

Will writes, in part:

The early-morning paramilitary-style raids on citizens’ homes were conducted by law enforcement officers, sometimes wearing bulletproof vests and lugging battering rams, pounding on doors and issuing threats. Spouses were separated as the police seized computers, including those of children still in pajamas. Clothes drawers, including the children’s, were ransacked, cellphones were confiscated and the citizens were told that it would be a crime to tell anyone of the raids.

Some raids were precursors of, others were parts of, the nastiest episode of this unlovely political season, an episode that has occurred in an unlikely place. This attempted criminalization of politics to silence people occupying just one portion of the political spectrum has happened in Wisconsin, which often has conducted robust political arguments with Midwestern civility…

…(Wisconsin) has been embarrassed by Milwaukee County’s Democratic district attorney, John Chisholm. He has used Wisconsin’s uniquely odious “John Doe” process to launch sweeping and virtually unsupervised investigations while imposing gag orders to prevent investigated people from defending themselves or rebutting politically motivated leaks.

According to several published reports, Chisholm told subordinates that his wife, a teachers union shop steward at her school, is anguished by her detestation of Walker’s restrictions on government employee unions, so Chisholm considers it his duty to help defeat Walker….

…On Oct. 14, much too late in the campaign season to rescue the political-participation rights of conservative groups, a federal judge affirmed what Chisholm surely has known all along: Since a U.S. Supreme Court ruling 38 years ago, the only coordination that is forbidden is between candidates and independent groups that go beyond issue advocacy to “express advocacy” — explicitly advocating the election or defeat of a particular candidate.

But Chisholm’s aim — to have a chilling effect on conservative speech — has been achieved by bombarding Walker supporters with raids and subpoenas…

Like their Soviet brothers, liberals like Chisholm love the police and prisons, but believe they should only be used to silence political opponents.

They are synonymous in their evil, repressiveness. Nazi in English translates to Nationalist SOCIALISTS Party. The USSR Translates to Union of the Soviet Socialist Republic, AS we note the same common denominator=Socialism. And they are all designed to enslave and repress and destroy God and individualism or freedom or liberty.

The fascists and communists share much in common. Fascism is where the state forces private companies to carry out the state’s agenda. Under socialism, the state owns major parts of the economy, such as the power, healthcare, and transportation industries, Under communism, the states owns all property.

Liberalism leads to fascism and finally communism. It’s goal is the control of all people as commodities or units of production.

Correct. There is little difference between Fascists and Communists. The distinction has been hidden by decades of MSM disinformation.

It gets too far into the weeds to argue that two totalitarian systems have any particular fundamental differences. Who cares whether a government actually owns the means of production, or it simply controls that means as if it owns it? Either people are free to live as they wish, receive the rewards of their labors, and express their point of view, or they are not. To distinguish fascism from communism, or even to state that they have “much in common”, I would point out with due respect, is only to buffer the fact that these systems enslave, impoverish, marginalize, and execute people, and they are both the antithesis of freedom, well being, and general human happiness. Just regard them as the same, as coercive political systems that rule mercilessly and murderously over people, because there is no important difference between them. The smaller details of exactly how they accomplish their evil purposes, and just how much difference in methodology is needed before a different name needs to be used, amount to extremely little.

That is absolutely correct. The vast majority do not know the actual definition of fascism. When protesters call Conservatives (particularly Republicans) fascists, they are announcing their ignorance to the entire world, at least to the educated segment of the population.

alfie is the product of the poor public education system that focuses more on teaching Marxism, socialism, and CRT than on teaching the difference between communism and Catholicism. Commie’s don’t believe in religion, unless it’s climate change or COVID. Anything with God is out of the question for commies.

Doesn’t matter – many of the Catholic Church teachings are false, whether or not they are tainted with poor political views. And YES, I was a practicing Catholic for decades until God opened my eyes to truth vs false teachings.

I don’t see any “hate”. I think most rational people think the Catholic Church has a lot to answer for. It’s essentially a cult/scam that preys on stupidity and ignorance and has done immense damage globally. From encouraging the overpopulation crisis to keeping people locked into medieval dogma that isn’t fit for a modern society, to the massive rampant pedophilia, and the unbridled exploitation of the poor.

I would say for shame, but they will just say “That’s what confession is for. I give it to god.” Right? Another self-serving farce of a ritual to avoid having to accept accountability or responsibility. Just go to confession and all is well. Get a pedophile to absolve you and its all better.

So yah, there’s a lot wrong with the entire thing.
