Wisconsin Democrat State Senator Comments on Crime: ‘F**k the Suburbs’

Wisconsin Democrat State Senator Comments on Crime: ‘F**k the Suburbs’

“F— the suburbs, because they don’t know a g–damn thing about how life is in the city”

A Democrat state senator from Wisconsin named LaTonya Johnson was recently commenting on the issue of crime when she said “f**k the suburbs,” going on to say that the suburbs have no idea what it’s like in the cities.

That’s not exactly true. Lots of people leave cities to live in the suburbs precisely because of issues like crime.

FOX News reported:

Wisconsin state senator says ‘f— the suburbs’ amid debate on crime spreading from cities

A debate over funding more policing caused Wisconsin state Sen. LaTonya Johnson to condemn suburban areas of her state, saying they know nothing of city life.

Politicians in Wisconsin have been debating a multi-year spending plan that covers topics ranging from politicized education to law enforcement. The Associated Press noted that the two-year budget would “cut income taxes across the board, increase funding for K-12 schools and cut the University of Wisconsin’s budget in a fight over diversity, equity and inclusion programming” and is “up for final approval in the Republican-controlled Legislature on Thursday.”

AP reporter Scott Bauer summarized that there had been a specific debate among the lawmakers about “crime in Milwaukee and concerns about it spreading from the city to the suburbs,” which sparked a fiery response from Johnson.

“F— the suburbs, because they don’t know a g–damn thing about how life is in the city,” she proclaimed on the senate floor.

So classy. So becoming of a state senator. Have our precious norms been restored yet?

The Wisconsin Law Journal has a suggestion for Ms. Johnson. Resign:

Editorial: LaTonya Johnson should resign from office, Wisconsin deserves better

The reality: Milwaukee’s suburbs are on the front line of city crime, just as any other city across the country. Wauwatosa, Shorewood, St. Francis are dealing with crime that spills over from Milwaukee. Glendale, Whitefish Bay, Mequon, Cudahy, Oak Creek, are no stranger to issues that spill over from Milwaukee either. The same is true in Chicago with crime spilling into Oak Park and Evanston, or Baltimore City where crime spills over into Baltimore County. This is the reality of the world we live in. We need leaders who will work together with local, county, state and federal officials to make our communities better.

In my opinion, State Sen. LaTonya Johnson is not fit for office and Wisconsin deserves someone who loves Wisconsin – all of Wisconsin – rural, urban and suburban.

Last night the Associated Press tweeted Sen. Johnson said, “F-ck the suburbs because they don’t know a goddam thing about life is in the city.”

What if a suburban senator said, “F-ck the city.” How would that play in Milwaukee?

Dialogues like this is not only counter-productive to the values of the senator’s constituents, but also is far out of alignment with the value of all Wisconsinites.

It’s a good thing for Johnson that she is a Democrat.

If a Republican said something like this, every journalist would be demanding comment from every other Republican, asking if they agree with her statement

Through her vile language she shows a deep contempt for the legislative body she was elected to and is sufficient for her expulsion.

    We most certainly understand cities, that is why we left. Work fair is in order, there is a lot of vacant land in cities, time to make these SOBs raise and preserve their own food. To enforce this handout food to those who work hard on a day-by-day basis, Slackers get bread and water. Maybe we can teach responsibility. Feed just the children at community centers

    You’re being overly generous. She’s acting like the street trash she is.

May I assume from her “F*** the suburbs” comment that she is releasing suburban residents from their tax obligations that go to support the inner cities?


Why not?

    How dare we object to funding high school girls from having a few babies and their check, then they spend years neglecting their children. They turn into monsters, and we get to pay again. I am very tired of this.

    Are Wisconsin cities positive or negative in terms of net tax flow?

    As in are they net contributors or sinkholes regarding taxpayer funds?.

“F*** Clarence Thomas;” “F*** the suburbs;” etc., etc.

The vile, infantile, vindictive, obnoxious and totalitarian Dumb-o-crats are incapable of engaging in civil discourse and comporting themselves in a manner that is conducive to democratic process. Threats, insults, violence and perpetual agitprop in service of a Balkanized society and fomenting tribal divisions are all that they know and propagate.

With each passing day, the Dumbs’ ugly, Maoist/Stalinist fanaticism and zealotry become more unabashed and belligerent. They are fanatics who are immune to laws, facts, rationality and comity.

I’ll also add that it’s perennially “Damned if you do; damned if you don’t,” with these race hustling, grievance-wallowing/mongering agitators “of color.”

These idiots complain when non-blacks move into a predominantly and/or historically black neighborhood, deeming that phenomenon to represent the alleged scourge of “gentrification” (which, to rational minds, seems more like “integration”). This complaining about “gentrification” being nothing more than blatant racism dressed up in a fig-leaf euphemism contrived by the Dumb-o-crats.

But, if non-blacks choose not to live in predominantly black neighborhoods (or, alternatively, move out of those neighborhoods) and seek safer neighborhoods featuring better quality-of-life, in the suburbs, the grievance is now characterized as alleged “white flight.”

So, these black agitators complain when non-blacks possess the temerity to live among them, and, they complain when non-blacks possess the temerity to not live among them.

    When whites left cities they lost most or all their equity, those poor city people picked up much of that equity just by being low life.

    “These idiots complain when non-blacks move into a predominantly and/or historically black neighborhood, deeming that phenomenon to represent the alleged scourge of “gentrification” (which, to rational minds, seems more like “integration”). ”

    First of all, those were white areas. Whites built the homes, the shops, the churches, the schools. So, no. The history is white.

    Second, I can boil their complaints down to one phrase: “(tsk…) Here comes the neighborhood!”

      Well, I was thinking about historically black neighborhoods such as Harlem, parts of Washington, D.C., Compton, Watts, etc. They may have been built by white people, originally, but, I think it’s fair to say that black folks have been living there for much of their history and those ‘hoods are fairly considered to be historically black neighborhoods.

When she says ‘f the suburbs’ presumably she knows enough to know that suburbs are contiguous geographical entities and as such are not capable of being f’d. So she means ‘f the people who live in the suburbs.’ (Including this correspondent.) A Declaration of War. Happens all the time — for decades now — we just blow it off. Affirmative Non-action. Ho-hum, another day, another bigoted, hate-filled racist spouting off… that she’s an elected representative implies that a lot of her constituents (Fuck the Wisconsin 17th District?) feel the same. Big problem we got here. Apparently we just go on pretending it doesn’t exist.

“. . . because they don’t know a g–damn thing about how life is in the city”

Actually they do. That’s why they’re in the suburbs.

Having lived in urban areas, and in suburbs, and now in a rural area . . . and having spent most of my career dealing with the residents of the criminal justice system; given that comment by Senator Johnson I have to listen seriously to what the theoretical suburban Senator said.

OK La Shonda, calm down.

Apparently you don’t know a GD thing about why people who live in the suburbs do so. It’s to get away from people like you, from crime and rodent infested neighborhoods, and to live better lives.

Even Joe Biden didn’t want raise his children in crime infested jungles.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to AF_Chief_Master_Sgt. | July 1, 2023 at 7:51 am

    It is not likely to happen in my lifetime. I sincerely hope someone replies to comments like hers in direct words. No candy-coating. No polysyllabic words that sound nicer than direct words.

    “Yes. We do it to escape from you people. Your vulgarity. Your loud talking in otherwise-quiet venues like restaurants because – like a Harley rider with loud pipes – you demand our attention.

    “In the suburbs, we do not have the trash you drop in the streets, graffiti, screeching tires during your “side show” events.

    “We like shops where we select the merchandise ourselves rather than a clerk being needed to unlock a cabinet.

    “Our children are not attacked on the school bus for the crime of not being a member of the Negro race.”

    Et cetera. You get the idea.

    I am sure to get downticks, at least some of which will be from pearl-clutchers who cannot stand the truth in clear words.

    As one who used to mouth the shibboleths of the leftists, I am at a point where plain-spoken talk is called for. In context with the SCOTUS decision regarding Affirmative Action, I say, “It’s not 1952 anymore. Earn the grades, get the high SAT scores, then go to college. No one is stopping you if you have the brains and the will.”

The reason suburbanites live in the suburbs is because they know precisely what the cities are like. Why would they choose to commute much longer distances otherwise?

There is currently a battle between Atlanta and one of its suburbs, Buckhead. Buckhead wants nothing to do with Atlanta, insofar as they have defunded the police, and extract a great deal of tax money from the residents of Buckhead, They want to incorporate themselves, and tell Atlanta to go pound sand. They are losing this fight unfortunately. They are engaging in this fight because they know precisely what the city is like, and they want nothing to do with it.

This is not just a few cranks with an axe to grind. This is almost a 100k people screaming that they do not want the MARTA light rail extended to their community because it will allow easy access for the Atlanta criminals to prey on the Buckhead residents. Leave us alone! Get the F@#$ out!

They know. They want no part of the cities.

    I think this was a similar situation: Vestavia Hills splitting from Birmingham. The difference is: they were successful in their endeavors.

    West Hills split from Canoga Park, but, within a few years, the differences disappeared.

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | July 1, 2023 at 8:32 am

      Not_A-Lawyer: you mentioned MARTA. For a very long time, the town of Millbrae in the SF bay area, fought tooth and nail to NOT have a BART station. BART serves Oakland, and they did not want knifings, shoplifting, flash mobs, rape, and other Oakland Delights just a BART ride away.

If LaTonya Johnson were secretly making a case for repeal of the 13th and 14th Amendments…what would she be doing and saying differently?

Revolutionary socialist rhetoric. Blaming “outside forces” for the inner city failures. Here we have obama wanting the destroy the suburbs and force homogenization… white (add Asian and upscale Latin)/black, poor/better off, criminal/victim. Busing transformed into housing. The solution is hard because it requires self-examination and a major cultural course correction away from the government dependent matriarchal society that has evolved in the Democratic controlled inner cities. The Rand study showed that black run cities care less for their minorities when it comes to education… and I would extend that. Thomas Sowell notes that the Northern black communities after the war were swamped by the freed “red neck” blacks of the South. SHe doesn’t even grasp this is inflicted by HER Party.

At least she is isn’t trying to hide her disdain for the Suburban folks. I always appreciate honesty and this Sen was nothing if not honest. Also politically stupid in a State like Wisconsin where GoP candidates still win Statewide. Not gonna help the d/prog BS messaging about ‘we ain’t like national d/prog in DC or those d/prog in Chicago’.

She is a Democrat. Drags everything down to her level. People, cities, institutions. It doesn’t matter..

Milwaukee just declared bankruptcy

The stupid state Republican legislature has sect to bail it out

Can’t make this sh!t up

I was raised in Milwaukee, prior to busing and sending all the good paying jobs overseas, it was a great town

Hence why shows such as Happy Days, Lavern and Shirley were always based in Milwaukee.

It was a conservative, blue collar town and it was great to grow up in. Around 67 it started to fall apart, at least it’s when we all noticed and it’s only gone downward

The HS I went to was rated #1 in the State, Washington, it had so many Jews going to it it was nicknamed Washingstein….
It had a jr Olympic sized swimming pool, only for the boys mind you, they had a a swim team and a diving team. We girls had a pool the size of a large bathtub. I didn’t even know we had a men’s swimming team till I dated a guy and found out what sexual discrimination was really all about.

Believe me, I had hints prior.

Now it’s a black ghetto, they completely destroyed the school, the beautiful neighborhoods with their large boulevards and parks.

It’s such a shame. My house I grew up in sold for $1, yes, one dollar amd then the neighborhood was torn down amd they put in a parking lot for Master Lock company.

It was a good neighborhood to grow up in, they destroyed it, came in like locust, people couldn’t get to the suburbs fast enough. The beautiful little homes looked like Dresden by the time the AA’s got through with it. Better it became a parking lot

    A lot of American cities were safe, clean, and great before bussing and the race riots.

    It’s such a shame. My house I grew up in sold for $1, yes, one dollar amd then the neighborhood was torn down amd they put in a parking lot for Master Lock company.

    No doubt that lot was built with tax abatements and other schemes placed on the backs of the taxpayers. Yet, I have not seen an American-made Master Lock product in years.

    I really hate that kind of thing. GM was bailed out with taxpayer money. Yes, it was paid back in full, but the thanks we got for “saving GM” is Korean Chevrolets, and Korean and CHINESE Buicks and Cadillacs.

Wonder how many Zuckerbucks went into her district.

stella dallas | June 30, 2023 at 11:22 pm

She’s a foul mouth vulgarian elected as a state senator. How did she ever get elected?

    Dolce Far Niente in reply to stella dallas. | July 1, 2023 at 12:15 am

    You merely need to look at the demographics of her district. Its no secret that her tribe always elects tribal members.

She’s a real charmer, and I bet she’s “wicked smart” too. (s)

Interestingly enough, when Hank Aaron played for the Milwaukee Braves, he lived in Shorewood, a Milwaukee suburb.
