Cult of Mayor John Dickert!

As you my know Dr Dean Bertram from Australia is visiting the State of Wisconsin as part of his tour of the States, I know Dr Bertram  well and he made it a point to call me to come on my Podcasts Indy Film Wisconsin and Go Go Girls vs the Nazis (see the teaser at  This film will be shot in Racine Spring 2013).

The god Dr made it a point to read this Blog, Racine Uncovered and others to get an idea of this City as I have written before.

Yesterday we talked again and well lets say it was a wild time, you see the good Dr studies Cults in fact got his PHD in that and……

After that phone call I am beginning to think that Mayor John Dickert is running a Cult!

Lets see

Extreme leadership, someone forceful enough to impose ideas that don’t pass muster in the light of day.  From the idea that Racine has no crime its all a perception. This idea is told and retold all the time

Information control, discouraging members from reading criticism about the group.

Good example is look at Dickert’s trolls who attack any who may say anything our fearless leader may not like. Another is the attacks on CAR 25 All outlets must be under his guidance.
Untoward secrecy doctrine should be knowable to outsiders
We love our closed doors in Racine and lack of returned phone calls. Why should we have a need to know should we simply not trust the Mayor of the City of Racine?
Other points
A cult needs to recruit and operate using deception.
Think NSP, why has the newspaper not covered it? Why did Bill “X” get is so much trouble what I understated as telling about issues in that program?
Why so much secrecy about Dickert’s deal with the City he sighed a letter saying if he was found to be acting as John Dickert not Mayor John Dicker he would pay his legal fees yest somehow that has not happened why?
How has the Journal Times been co-oped into the Cult?  My guess is that the legal bill issue alone be a very interesting topic to report on but I have read very little
The group displays excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader
We see this Mayor John Dicker is seen by his core group of followers as all knowing the source of all good things (or at least City contracts). If you in public criticize the Mayor you are evil and treated that way.
The group is preoccupied with making money.  off the tax payers, think NSP, think City Hall Bathrooms.  
Good news is that once Our cult leader is seen as just as some might say a poor excuse as a Mayor
the whole house of cards comes down.
What might you think?

    John Dickert is the “Harbinger of Doom”.

    In 2011 the City of Racine agreed to pay John Dickert’s personal private legal bills and other shifts in funding which resulted in funding for the Lifeguards at Quarry Lake Park being cut. That Spring, the first in decades in which Lifeguards weren’t present, a young man drown. This young man would be alive today – If the Lifeguards were there.

    “Bouma says lifeguards were eliminated this year due to budget cuts.”

    In 2012 John Dickert decided to eliminate Fire Station #5. Shortly thereafter, a terrible fire ensued in which a house was destroyed and 3 children killed – a fire which requiired the assistance of Fire Station #5 – which John Dickert is going to cut.

    “The deadly fire comes in the midst of a city budget season that’s featured a proposal from city administration to cut Racine Fire Department funding.”

    BEWARE! the Harbinger of Doom!

    • Yet the City can find 100K for Launch Box. 50K for the RCEDC to look for grants as perhaps more Black kids Burn.
      Do you think The Mayor wears White Sheets when he comes up with this stuff?
