Daily Bread for 2.22.22: The Answer to the Nativists in Whitewater Comes from… Kenya

Good morning.

Tuesday in Whitewater will be icy with a high of 31.  Sunrise is 6:39 AM and sunset 5:36 PM for 10h 56m 26s of daytime.  The moon is a waning gibbous with 64.4% of its visible disk illuminated.

Whitewater’s Finance Committee meets at 4:30 PM.

On this day in 1922, ice storms wreak havoc in Wisconsin:

Unprecedented freezing rain and snow assaulted the Midwest February 21-23, 1922. In Wisconsin the central and southern parts of the state were most severely affected, with the counties between Lake Winnebago and Lake Michigan south to Racine being hardest hit. Ice coated trees and power lines, bringing them down and cutting off electricity, telephone and telegraph services. Cities were isolated, roads were impassible, rivers rose, streets and basements flooded, and train service stopped or slowed. Near Little Chute a passenger train went off the rails, injuring several crew members. Appleton housed 150 stranded traveling salesmen, near Plymouth a sheet of river ice 35 feet long and nearly three feet thick washed onto the riverbank, while in Sheboygan police rescued a flock of chickens and ducks from their flooded coop and a sick woman from her flooded home. Icy streets caused numerous automobile accidents, but the only reported deaths were a team of horses in Appleton that was electrocuted by a fallen power line.

 In this beautiful city there are some who wrongly advance a nativist vision for Whitewater, for Wisconsin, and for America.  This ilk espouses an American version of a Blood and Soil policy (Blut und Boden) for this country. There has never been, and never will be, a person among this faction who is not wrong in principle and disgusting in action.

An answer to this faction can be found in the remarks of Kenya’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Martin Kimani:
