Vos, the Racist?

Apparently the fool who (illegally?) recorded a phone convo between 'Tricky Tony' Evers, Robin Vos, and Scott Fitzgerald then leaked the existence of the call to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's reporters.

Putting aside the breach of trust and the "who's really in charge" questions, it seems that the leaker wanted to hang Robin Vos on some silly "racism" charge.

So The Narrative is launched.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos blamed the culture of immigrant populations for a coronavirus outbreak in Racine County, according to a secret recording of his meeting last month with Gov. Tony Evers.

“I know the reason at least in my region is because of a large immigrant population where it’s just a difference in culture where people are living much closer and working much closer,” the Rochester Republican said of an outbreak in Racine County. ...

OK?  Now for some High Dudgeon!!

...The Rochester Republican's comments prompted Latino groups to call for Vos' resignation....

All the usual suspects plus a few immediately exploded their heads.

Unfortunately for them, Vos is correct.

...Vos spokeswoman Kit Beyer noted health experts at Duke University have said there is a higher incidence of coronavirus infections in the Latino community because many of them are essential workers or live with multiple generations. 

Cases in the county spiked at the end of May and have been falling since then. When Vos made his comment, cases were on the upswing....

That 'multiple generations' thing also applied in Italy and had similar results. 

If you read all the comments from the Grievance-Monetization crowd (yes, Ms. Neumann-Ortiz, that is you), you'll notice a hair-on-fire response which is far greater than called for by Vos' rather sanguine remarks.

Is that all they got??  A girly-girl hissy fit?  Really?
