Kleefisch: “Are we ready? Knives out?”
MADISON, Wis. – Tomorrow is the anniversary of the January 6th insurrection, but Rebecca Kleefisch isn’t slowing down her divisive campaign rhetoric. Kleefisch has called for building an “army” of “paid fighters” and “mercenaries,” as well as asking supporters if they were “ready to throw some hands” and had their “knives out.”
This kind of inflammatory speech is a hallmark of Radical Rebecca’s brand of politics. When she’s not calling for people to throw hands, she’s agreeing that survivors of sexual assault should turn “lemons to lemonade” or endorsing divisive policies like limiting voting rights and allowing the state legislature to overturn elections. It’s clear: Rebecca Kleefisch is too radical for Wisconsin.
“Radical Rebecca Kleefisch’s violent rhetoric has no place in Wisconsin,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Communications Director Iris Riis. “Kleefisch will say or do anything to rile up the radical right and get elected, even if it means embracing the type of destructive politics that resulted in an attack on our Capitol last year. Wisconsinites want a governor that embraces unity and respect for one another — words that aren’t in Kleefisch’s vocabulary — and they will soundly reject her radical agenda in 2022.”
