It is clear we are well on our way down a slippery slope if we can’t agree, as Americans, that the violence at the U.S. Capitol was wrong and should be publicly denounced. Yet that is the case in the Wisconsin capitol, where this week the Wisconsin Senate failed to pass a resolution condemning the death and violence in Washington. They didn’t get a chance to pass such a bill, because Republican leadership would not allow the resolution to be brought to the floor for a vote. The resolution would have acknowledged that Joe Biden won the election and condemn the deadly riot along with President Trump’s claims of a stolen election. But it was deemed to be not of relevance to the Senate. Not relevant? To the same Senate that finds it relevant to name official state rocks and official state tartans? Failing to condemn what has happened in Washington is no better than encouraging it. When our nation’s capitol is under attack, when feces is smeared on the walls of the Capitol, when a police officer is murdered, all in an effort to undo a duly certified election, we should all be alarmed. And we should at every opportunity proclaim loudly that such actions were wrong. Perhaps it is the Wisconsin Senate that lacks relevance here.
