Skip to comments.Wisconsin Gas Station Menaced for Selling to Republicans

A Sheboygan gas station owner is baffled after a mystery caller tells a clerk it's a bad idea to do business with a Sheboygan-area state senator.
It started Tuesday when a woman called Dick Hiers's Northeast Standard gas station after she thought she saw Senator Joe Leibham there. Her call was caught on the answering machine.
"I think that this whole thing has to end. It has to stop," said Hiers.
Hiers never thought his little gas station in the heart of Sheboygan would be the stage of political controversy. Then again, his week has been full of surprises.
"I was working back here and the answering machine went off, and I was a little surprised by that, and when I heard the message here, I was even a little more surprised."
The answering machine here in the back of the store was left on from the night before and was recording the entire conversation.
Caller: "Can you verify that was Senator Leibham at the gas station this morning?"
Gas station clerk: "Senator Leibham?"
Caller: "Yes. Do you guys support him?"
Clerk: "I have nothing to say about that, I am not politically involved."
Caller: "Alright, well you can tell Dick he's not good for business, I'll tell you that."
Shocked over the 26-second conversation, Hiers quickly traced the call -- only to get surprise number two.
"And it turned out to be coming from the Sheboygan area district school office," he said.
"Obviously our school district equipment and the facilities are for the purposes of school," Superintendent Joseph Sheehan responded. "Any type of phone call leaving any types of threats or condoning any type of intimidation is strictly prohibited."
The superintendent, who was out of the area Friday, said the district's taken what it calls "appropriate disciplinary action."
The woman is a district employee but school officials say that 8:15 call was made before she was on the clock.
As for Dick Hiers, he is still wants answers, saying this week full of surprises is a sign things have gone too far.
It turns out it wasn't the senator but his brother at the gas station.
Senator Leibham, who was not available for comment, has filed an open records request with the school district. The district says it's working on the request.
There will be civil war.
A raise and promotion?
And why should that matter? It is still school property, and she was at work. If it had happened 2 hrs later, could the school claim she was on her morning break?
I thought Wisconsin school district offices were used by the unions as staging areas for their “work.” Why would this surprise anyone?
In Michigan they’re screaming that we’re going to treat them worse than pedophiles and we’ll start shooting them next. LOL
Now - like real-world mafia goons - they're down to threatening gas station guys who do business with their imagined adversaries. From a public school phone of all things.
Incredible, but rich.
Wisconsin has been a been great for revealing the true colors of the union/teacher/lefty establishment. It's also been great for causing them to lose their minds.
Just another concerned Democrat constituent
trying to prevent a Republican lawmaker from
purchasing overpriced fuel.......
Naturally the din from all the denunciations by state dhimmicratic types along with the union bosses was thunderous, right?
We can only hope....
>>>There will be civil war.
Already is. It’s just not a hot war. Yet.
On the clock? Since when do teachers clock in? I thought they were on salary.
By the superintendent's comment, it is clear that "appropriate disciplinary action" means "do nothing".
Ever consider that this is part of Obama's plan? How better for the NWO'ers and the international socialists to invite "international peacekeepers" into the country to monitor elections and keep the peace?
The Russians, Chinese, Libyans, Saudis and Pakistanis and other members of the UN human rights council would love to intervene.
Proof that the left are really hard core communists thugs. These degenerates are beyond being call Americans.
“Superintendent Joseph Sheehan responded. “Any type of phone call leaving any types of threats or condoning any type of intimidation is strictly prohibited.”
Then the employee should have been fired. Not be clocked in is NOT a defense.
Is it okay for teachers to screw their students on the superintendent’s desk, as long as they are on break or haven’t clocked in?
How long do you figure until the shooting war breaks out? I’m guessing it will be the day after the Tea Party gets blamed for some Reichstag event committed by union operatives.
“>>>There will be civil war.
Already is. Its just not a hot war. Yet.”
And yet the majority of parents...even conservatives...will place their own children into the care of these people under the “idea” that they are being educated.
If all of us that call ourselves Christian or conservative would remove our children from the public schools we could collapse the whole system...but we don’t. This is what confuses me...why not collapse the system?
The educational system in this country, at all levels, is a union stronghold, a leftist’s haven, and a grand factory for creating more leftists. If we ever want to get a handle on this country’s destruction, it has to start with the schools.
And the union will defend her with what amounts to Wisconsin tax dollars. Hell of a note, if you ask me.
>>>This is what confuses me...why not collapse the system?
Re-take the system via school boards, and state legislatures everywhere and do what Wisconsin did.
And the school board thing is a serious place to start - school boards approve contracts. And curriculums. The left has been incrementally taking over the state established school systems for 40+ years. And yeah, taking kids out of public schools is a good way to make a point... or get a state legislature to allow open enrollment, and give parents school choice in public schools.
Risky...but it may be the only solution. The question is who is in charge if "we" win?
Nice little gas station ya got here...
it’d be a shame if anytin’ was to happen to it...
Caller: “Can you verify that was Senator Leibham at the gas station this morning?”
Gas station clerk: “Senator Leibham?”
Caller: “Alright, well you can tell Dick he’s not good for business, I’ll tell you that.”
Shocked over the 26-second conversation, [gas station owner] Hiers quickly traced the call — only to get surprise number two.
“And it turned out to be coming from the Sheboygan area district school office,” he said.
The SECOND move would be to capture Washington D.C. (and all the parasitic jackasses within there, too).
Then, it's a battle between those who work for what they have, and those that depend on the Gubmint to TAKE IT AND HAND IT OUT TO THEM FOR THEIR VOTES.
A complete do-over, going back to STRICTLY what the U.S. Constitution says, is what we need.
Roll out the red carpet for them, I say. We'll never get a chance to deal with them decisively if they don't come *here*.
“Caller: “Alright, well you can tell Dick he’s not good for business, I’ll tell you that.” “
Aren’t phone threats a criminal offense in WI?
“The left has been incrementally taking over the state established school systems for 40+ years”
While it is 40+ years, a more accurate statement would be 100+ years. There are several places that a person could learn about the formation of our current public education system. I would suggest the book, “Clergy in the Classroom” by David A. Noebel. It presents several quotes from the founders of public education going back to 1897 spelling out what the plan was and is...everything is going as planned.
“And yeah, taking kids out of public schools is a good way to make a point...”
The idea is not to make a point, but to do what is best for the child. How many more generations are we willing to offer to the other side while we “try” to improve the system by school boards, open enrollment, school choice, etc.?
My answer is...”NONE of my children”
It’s all so crazy.
“These degenerates are beyond being call Americans.”
We should round ‘em up and send them to Cuberia where they can live out their lives in utopian equality.
It truly is.
“There will be civil war.”
...and they will lose. We got the guns and we got the numbers.
Bad news for Dems as this is all over Green Bay news. At least one union tool state senator is set to go to recall election - Dave Hansen.
The difference is, we’re fighting back. That’s the real story.
I have 8 grandkids. The oldest will be 5 in June. Not one of my kids are sending them to government schools. They are looking at all the options, and government schools isn’t on their list. My kids are in their mid to late 20’s. More and more parents are opting out of the ‘norm’. The schools are dying. Good. Privatize the whole lot of them.
My eldest lives in Sheboygan.
There is a homeschooling network in the state that isn’t affiliated with any group. They’re not on the internet. The families pool their resources, take turns schooling different subjects, and is totally against the ‘law’. It’s completely by ‘invite’ only. They’re doing it anyway.
(sorry we forgot to include you in the press release)
I know from personal experience that UW-Madison has been preaching liberal socialism for at least the past 40 years. Like the “ends justify the means” behavior that has been on display over Walker’s budget reforms....
High five and a slap on the back.
Hope is for dopes.
I know several homeschooling families in Sheboygan and the surrounding area. Homeschooling has been growing well in that area of Wisconsin for several years.
The funny thing is that it wasn’t even Joe Liebham that this woman saw.
It was his brother. He’s got eight other brothers and they all look and dress in the same manner.
There’s an open records request to find out who the woman is.
This is part of the reason I am so firm in my conviction that as parents we need to do better by our children when it comes to education. If we allow the garbage to be poured into them...sometimes starting as young as four...then why are we surprised when we get garbage out of them.
As conservatives we talk of personal responsibility...I would think that that should extend to education.
Thank you for you post.
It is over 100+ years. It started before John Dewey but Dewey is the main criminal behind this takeover.
“Public unions and their bosses have long outlived themselves. However, just because the LEFT are reckless doesn’t mean people on FR should be reckless”
Agreed, no need at this time to talk of a shooting war. What we are involved in right now is a culture war. And if those of use that are Christian and conservative would stop sending our children to the liberals to be “educated” we would be winning the culture war. We need to make the better choice for the sake of our children and for the sake of our country.
