Leftists Shut Down Atlanta's July 4 Tea Party
A property owner, who just happens to be a money source for a variety of Leftist/Statist politicians and causes, has used his influence to shut down Atlanta's July 4 Tea Party. The symbolism is thick. Independence Day is the perfect day for peaceful protesters to let their voices be heard now that "creeping socialism" has become "sprinting Marxism." But, the actions of Melvin Simon and his organization demonstrate that the Left will do all it can to silence debate. I have little doubt that across the country Leftist totalitarians are looking for loopholes to prevent another round of public demonstrations by proud Patriots.
