The Bloomington City Council didn’t care when Tari attacked Judy Stearns over and over.
They barely cared when Tari attacked numerous citizens, including me.
It’s a different story when Tari attacks the Council!
At the end of last night’s meeting Tari commented he was upset the five alderman sent their demand to cancel the Welcoming Ordinance meeting to the media. The five obviously knew sending anything to Tari is a waste of time, so they went over his head.
Karen Schmidt called him out for his comments about the 5 council members in front of a social justice conference at ISU. He evidently told the crowd the 5 were “popping champagne corks” to celebrate defeating the ordinance. Joni Painter and David Sage joined her assault on Tari, the council divide is now complete. Mboka Mwilambwe attempted to be a voice of reason, I doubt Schmidt, Sage, and Painter were in the mood for reconciliation.
Tari’s exchange with David Sage shows his character. He refused to say he made those comments or deny it. Tari finally admitted he doesn’t remember what he said. Sage went on to praise Karen Schmidt and empathize with her because she is the one being targeted by groups wanting illegals protected. He proclaimed the Council can not be the victim of bullies.
There was temporary respite when Jamie Mathy acted shocked by the outpouring of donations for the fire victims. His words mirror the national media who are always surprised to find out who real Americans are when a disaster strikes. The discussion then returned to the welcoming ordinance.
Alderman Bray was on the phone with more comments, of course Tari had to respond. Amelia Buragas commented after a motion to adjourn was made about transparent discussions. Karen Schmidt suggested a joint meeting with Normal, the issue should be dead but activists won’t let it die. A guy stated during public comment that he wanted the ordinance even though it doesn’t change anything. See his comments at 9:55.
If the welcoming ordnance changes nothing, the Bloomington Council is wasting time on the irrelevant. It does embolden law breakers though, just like the citizens police review board emboldened hatred for the police.

update: employee was fired
The illegal alien supporters won’t be happy with an ordinance. Next they will demand illegals be allowed to vote in local elections. That’s what progressive activists do – push, shove, intimidate and never stop trying to turn government against people who just want laws enforced. Tari promotes policies to divide the population. he has officially divided the Council.
The video proves this Council is now totally dysfunctional. Nothing will change under Tari Renner is gone. Just hit play, you might want to make some popcorn first for the show.
