Yes, there’s going to be a protest this weekend about the opening of a porn shop in Old Town Manassas. No, it will not, as some irresponsible people out there have claimed, involve a boycott of businesses in Old Town during the Fall Jubilee.
On Saturday at noon, in front of City Hall, residents are going to have a protest the city government allowing a “Sexually Oriented Business” to open in Old Town and the decision by the business owner to choose Old Town out of all the localities in Northern Virginia as a place to sell sex toys and adult DVDs. To show their objections about this as well, a number of local businesses have chosen to hang a sign in their window for one hour to demonstrate their concerns.
Yes, this is Old Town. Other than the behavior of radical race separatists aligned with illegal aliens, civic action tends to be pretty mild-mannered here. Of course, that’s not quite the picture you get from the local porn-everywhere-anytime lobby, which has gone into full panic mode:
It has come to our attention that the merchants of Old Town Manassas are being asked by the anti-KK zealots to close up shop for 1 hour during the middle of Fall Festival, between 12:00 and 1:00 pm. Are they nuts? Fall Festival and the other events held in the City are to promote fun, highlight the city, and bring in folks to spend money in the City of Manassas. Localities all over America do this and each place tries to add its own unique touch to an event; something that makes the festival special. What kind of a self-serving, narcissistic, self person would ask merchants in this economic crunch to turn away potential business for an hour? Why? Are they going to pay each merchant their lost revenue? Are they going to replace the BPOL tax loss for the City? Are they going to replace the sales tax to the state? Are they going to pay the salaries of the worker bees who might get put on unpaid ‘break’ for an hour? Do these people think that the average shopper coming from outside Old Town Manassas gives a fig about KK Temptations, which by the way, isn’t even open for business yet? The Moonhowlings roving reporters will be taking note of which businesses were bullied into closing. We will publish those names. Our readers and contributors may handle the situation as they feel best. One has to ask what on earth these people are trying to do to the City. This proposed behavior is illogical. What people boycott themselves? The object of the boycott won’t even be open for business. Knowledge is power. This boycott is all about bullying and power. Some of us will not allow ourselves to be bullied. Elena Moon-howler
Call me an anti-KK zealot if you’d like, but that’s seriously got to be better than getting bunched in with them rather than a group of people trying to twist what’s going on here into such hysterical rubbish. Just how do you “accidentally” confuse business owners — who have already spoken out about this issue — voluntarily displaying a sign in their window for one hour on a Saturday with “self-serving, narcissistic, self persons” (whatever the heck that’s supposed to be) bullying them to close down? Holy defenestration Batman, they’re actually putting signs in their windows for a whole hour! It’s the Old Town Taliban! Run for your life, before they make you not gay!!!
All those leftover moonfruit addicts would be well served to just pick up and move to Maryland, where they can enjoy the company of similarly-minded jackwagons who can’t wait to live in some progressive worker’s paradise. This just gets dumber and dumber, and at some point it’s just got to get embarrassing. Seriously, after whining that we’re not adequately welcoming to porn shops in Old Town Manassas, do you really think there’s anyone with patience left for this kind of claptrap?
