It seems Republicans would not have approved of the Boston Tea PArty – but just 8 short years ago – came the tea party.

Oh I see. Only Republicans can protest………

Thomas Jefferson – “[And] what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?”

“Since the election of President Trump, Republican lawmakers in at least 18 states have introduced or voted on legislation to curb mass protests in what civil liberties experts are calling ‘an attack on protest rights throughout the states,’” the Washington Post reports.

  • “Some are introducing bills because they say they’re necessary to counter the actions of ‘paid’ or ‘professional’ protesters who set out to intimidate or disrupt, a common accusation that experts agree is largely overstated…’
  • ‘Others, like the sponsors of a bill in Minnesota, say the measures are necessary to protect public safety on highways’.
  • ‘Still other bills, in states like Oklahoma and South Dakota, are intended to discourage protesting related to oil pipelines.”

  1. I must ask what is wrong with this people? Do these folks represent the United States of America? Men and women have died for this right to protest.

    • Our Country was founded on revolution, protest, civil disobedience.
      Michael Steel, the former RNC chair said it best years ago – “They fear that which they can’t control”.
