Arapaho County Prepares for DNC Protestors

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 26, 2008

The law enforcement authorities in Denver, Colorado are being very proactive regarding the legions of anarchists, communists, progressives, and other freaks known as Democrats descend upon Denver in an attempt to “Recreate ’68“.

They have passed an ordinance that makes it unlawful for protesters to possess large sticks, whether they be metal or wooden, gas masks or projectile launchers.

ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. — No large sticks and no poles. Those are the rules approved Tuesday by the Arapahoe County Board of County Commissioners for protesters surrounding the Democratic National Convention.

“As we were planning for our efforts toward the DNC it became obvious to us that this was a public safety gap that needed to be filled,” said Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson.

# The ordinance makes it unlawful for anyone in unincorporated Arapahoe County who is involved in a demonstration, rally or picket line or similar public assembly to:

# possess any metal, hard plastic or wood object that is sharpened or that exceeds the allowed dimensions set forth in the ordinance (no longer than 2 feet)

# possess any type of projectile launcher
possess a gas mask

Demonstrators said they understand the need for safety, but believe this ordinance goes too far.

“A gas mask can never be used to hurt somebody, it is not an offensive thing,” said Glenn Spagnuolo with Recreate 68. “It can only be used to protect somebody from being injured.”

Commentary

I hope that these nuts are able to mount a large protest effort that will show regular Americans just how nutty the Democrat Party has become. I have also been monitoring some forums where delegates to the DNC are planning to mount Direct Actions inside the convention itself. This will be a convention to remember, and savor the nuttiness of the left.

Here is a video from the Communism Now Newscast about the planned DNC protest from this past April:
