Government Bans Tea Party From Celebrating U.S. Constitution

The reason behind the growing number of blatant anti-constitution/bill of rights/tea party attacks by the government, should be as plain as the nose on your face. If the public can’t see where this is going, the fat lady has sung, and there really is nothing left that can save us.

Well, one thing is for sure, those engaging in willful ignorance, will reap what they sow. How is it that other countries are able to recognize tyranny in government when our citizens are not? Talk to the average person and you will hear vehement denials that the evil perpetrated by tyrannical governments, (too many to mention in the last century), could possibly happen here. Why? Who are these stupid, lazy, uneducated people who believe they can sit on their butts and not have to worry about an out of control government and a United Nations that’s hell bent on world domination and depopulation? Well, I guess they’re stupid, lazy, uneducated people, who are too comfortable to look beyond their own circumstances. Because it’s all right there if you will just open your eyes. These are the same folks who will tell you that they don’t wish to have their mushy little brains bothered by such unpleasantness. Who the hell ever told these people that life is all about fun and games anyway?

Only in America has denial become such a prescient state of mind that no truth can affect it, no light can penetrate it and no reason (or proof!) can argue with it. It reminds me of the scene in the Matrix where Morpheus says to Neo; “I’m trying to free your mind Neo. But I can only show you the door. You have to walk through it”. It’s not enough to give people the information, they have to leave their denial at the door and believe. Then and only then can they take the necessary steps to get our country back.

Constitution Day rally deemed “too political” by Ohio Township trustees

Local government representatives in an Ohio town have taken it upon themselves to prohibit a Tea Party celebration of the US Constitution, prompting a lawsuit over restrictions on First Amendment rights.

Members of the Andover Tea Party in Ohio have been informed that they cannot hold a public rally in the Town’s central square on Constitution Day (September 17) because of the group’s “political affiliation”.

The decision was taken by the Township’s trustees, and members of the Tea Party group were informed by letter that they would not be able to use the square for speakers and performances of patriotic songs.

Township officials informed the residents that speech at the Constitution Day rally could be of a “political nature,” and thus inappropriate for the public square, writes the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law, a nonpartisan, non profit law group that has filed a complaint and temporary restraining order against Andover Township (Ashtabula County) in U.S. District Court in Cleveland.

In the complaint, 1851 Center Executive Director Maurice Thompson writes, “It cannot be contested or doubted that the speech in which Plaintiffs seek to engage–honoring and discussing the fundamental law of this nation, i.e., the Constitution–is at the core of the speech protected by the First Amendment. And no venue could further reinforce such message as doing so in the center and heart of the community.”

“In this case, the communicative nature of Plaintiffs’ proposed activities, as well as the selection of the venue for such speech, is indisputably protected by the First Amendment.” Thompson adds.

A copy of the complaint and temporary restraining order are available here and here.

“The government’s action in this case, ironically, demonstrates the need for greater public understanding of Constitutional rights,” Thompson added in a written statement. “One way to do that is through commemoration of Constitution Day.”

In an interview with CNS News, Thompson elaborated on the case:

“The first thing that you note is the extreme irony of the unconstitutional prohibition of the commemoration of the Constitution.”

“[A]nd the second thing that’s notable is either the extreme arrogance or ignorance of many local government officials. There’s so much focus on federal government, yet some of the worst actors are at the ground level,” Thompson said.

A ruling is expected to be made on the case in the next 24 hours.
