GOP congressman not backing down after calling Madison a “communist community”

Congressman Sean Duffy

MADISON— A Republican congressman who derided Wisconsin’s capital city as a communist haven is not backing down from his comments even as those in the city that prides itself as being “77 square miles surrounded by reality” take offense.

Rep. Sean Duffy of Wausau called Madison a “communist community” in a recent Fox News interview and blasted the ongoing presidential recount. Duffy said: “It’s a sad state of affairs for these Democrats who don’t believe in democracy and freedom and free elections.”

The comments drew a rebuke from Democratic U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan who on Wednesday, December 7th called for an apology.

Duffy responded on Twitter by saying “the PC crowd is humorless. For those offended by my ‘communist’ comment, I’ll send a therapy dog to your ‘safe place’ of choice in Madison.”

    All Duffy did was say it loud enough what the rest of us have been saying for Years, 77 miles surrounded by reality is not a badge of honor it is telling you ignorant idiots that you are out of touch with the rest of the State.

      I’m OK with being “out of touch” with the rest of the state. I lived in West Central and Eastern Wisconsin for 31 years which is about 31 years too long. My wife is from the Northern part of the state which is about as close to Appalachia as you can get without actually being there. In my experience, the people in other parts of the state tend to be small minded, racist, and ignorant. Growing up, I often heard comments about Jews and N’s and Chinks..etc. The irony is that these comments came mainly from people that had never met one. The one openly gay guy in my High School was beaten to death in his mid 20’s. In college, an African-American man was beaten to the point of having permanent brain damage in a parking lot behind one of the bars in Eau Claire after he left the bar to avoid a fight.

      I’ve lived in Madison for the last 20 years and I love it here. Madison has been ranked consistently as one of the Top 100 Best Places in America to live. So you call people from Madison whatever you want, but you keep your “reality”.in your small small town.

        I grew up in Wisconsin Rapids, lived in Oshkosh and then 35 years in Madison. I marched on State St. when you could still drive cars on it. Worked at CWC and then Mendota. There is no question that the city is extreme left. The only correct ideas are the lefts ideas. Another city that rewards kids that come in last. Move kids thru the school system even when they cannot do the work. Waste money on boondoggles { is the Mural still there?]. Want a real horror story, move to Eugene OR.

        Really Mitch? You suggest that you are “enlightened” yet you speak of “Appalachia” like you actually know about it. Either you don’t and are ignorant, or you do and your just as bad as what you protest against which would make you a hypocrite! Is your wife aware of how you feel about her heritage? I suspect not… Madison may be a great place to live. That doesn’t make it’s politics appropriate or just. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if I lived in Wisconsin, I would be ashamed that the Green Party feels your state incompetent, and the National DNC/Hillary Clinton take you for granted. It’s your world boss!

    Duffy is a scream! Duffy for Senator in 2018!! The Leftists call people Nazis, Fascists, racists to name a few and that is perfectly normal and acceptable to them. By how dare he call them Commies!

    Congressman Duffy needs to take a a course in PolySci. This country isn’t a democracy. It was for a very short period until the Electoral College was established and changed the rules making it a republic and precluding ‘free’ elections. Free elections implies one vote for everyone and every vote counts and whomever receives the most wins.

      Sounds like you are still hoping that magic bag of hillary votes are going to be delivered by Santa so you can force the rest of us to live in your commie utopia. Well suck it!!! you lost and the American Voters have spoken, we will not be the slaves of big government

        I don’t bow down to small minds that grew up in small towns, I was born and raised in Milwaukee, now known as killwaukee because the communists from Madison poisoned the State with all your high taxes to pay for more sheep

  • Bob Persons

    Do you guys listen to yourselves? Have you ever talked to people in Madison? I live here. I’m not a communist. I don’t know a single communist. How old are you? Do you know any communists? When Duffy disdains citizens he’s never met, he should not be in a position of power over them.
