Big Democrat Donors Bluffed to Close Tea Party Protest

I wrote recently about how Democratic Party donors used their influence to shut down the Atlanta Tea Party after reading conservative blogs, including an entry on Confederate Yankee where I warned that if the ever-encroaching government did not reign in ever-expansing intrusions into personal liberties, they may one day face their own Lexington Green.

We now know that the group responsible for shutting down the protest did so by apparently lying about their authority in order to get the protest cancelled. The Simon Property Group had no legal claim, and seems to have bluffed the actual property owner into canceling the event.

Democrats spent much of the Bush Presidency warning of an impending fascist state, and now seem to be doing everything in their power to create one of their own, where even peaceable dissent is to be quashed if at all possible.

Happy Independence Day.

There is an old low budget 70s flick called Billy Jack. It was full of lefty ideology, not the least of which was a strong push for gun control. However one line from that movie has stuck in my mind and remained close to my heart even as I made the long journey from the left-center to the Right:

"The same forces which make peaceful evolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."

Nice trick. It only works once though.

I have already informed the local Simon Mall ( Brea Mall, Brea Ca) that I will not be shopping there anymore.

Typically, whatever you hear liberals bitchin' about is EXACTLY what they'll do as soon as they have the opportunity.

Two Questions:

1. Did The Simon Property Group also contribute heavily to Republican Party causes?

2. What role did the government play, if any, in prohibiting this "tea part"?
