West Bend School District divided by politics - JSOnline


West Bend School District divided by politics - JSOnline


What's missing from this news story is that most of the acrimony in West Bend politics during the past 10 years can be laid at the door of a handful of people for whom the rule of law is an inconvenient truth blocking an agenda informed more by religious commitments than civil ones.

Joe Carlson, former school board president, and someone who knows more about business than the entire Common Sense Citizens cadre, nailed the real problem for West Bend:

"If you're a moderate Republican in West Bend, you're a liberal," Carlson said.


By the standard's of the Koch brothers devotees in the Common Sense Citizen Krewe, Barry Goldwater would have been considered a socialist.

"...an agenda informed more by religious commitments than civil ones."

You are denying a religious commitment to Darwin and the progressive political religion?

If you are truly an objective, scientific, observer about the battle over religious control of the West Bend School Board...why do you get so worked up?
