Dems Call Cops To Stop Declaration Of Independence Recitation

By Greg L | 4 July 2012 | Manassas City | 45 Comments

If you want to understand Democrats, it helps to see them in action.  Yes, it’s rather like delving into abnormal psychology, an intellectual exercise perhaps engaged in either out of morbid curiosity or driven by a desire to help these poor souls recover some appreciation of reality in the hope they can eventually live fruitful, productive lives.  If your motivation is, like mine, the latter, you will observe some behavior that is quite difficult to comprehend as you do this.

A case in point: Democrats cannot tolerate hearing the Declaration of Independence read aloud.  The sound of it jars their delicate intellectual sensibilities much as you might react to hearing someone proudly recite the Communist Manifesto on a day like this, Independence Day.  The list of complaints our founding fathers leveled against King George bear a striking resemblance to the behavior of our federal government during the past few years, and the notion that our inalienable rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness are granted by God is simply abominable in their eyes.  That this document is actually the intellectual foundation for our republic is a mortal blow to any humanist-socialist mindset.

So what would a group like the Manassas Tea Party do, given this glaring cognitive disability on the part of their political adversaries?  They’d resolve to recite the Declaration of Independence during the Independence Day festivities in Manassas, and why not do it reasonably near the booth the Democrats are operating?  Heck, it might be the first time many of these folks have ever heard it, and it just might do some good.  What a fine idea.

Well, it might provide an opportunity to do that good if the Manassas Democrats weren’t so offended by the exercise of a recitation of the Declaration of Independence on Independence Day that they called the police to have these people removed.  Really.  Oh my Gaia, they’re reciting aloud the Declaration of Independence on July 4th at a public event, let’s call the cops!  Yep, that’s Democrats for you.  The chairman of the Manassas City Democrats even went so far as to say that this incident would cause three additional voters who witnessed it to cast their ballot for President Obama in November.

Never mind that the whole purpose of this day is to celebrate the Continental Congress approving that very document in 1776.  Never mind that the whole political system they’re trying to participate in is based on that very document.  Never mind that all their candidates claim that they understand and appreciate this very document.  To them it is intolerable, as it contains concepts entirely foreign to them, and inconsistent with their beliefs.  It leaves them no choice but to demand that the police power of the government be employed to protect them from having to hear it recited.

My suggestion to readers is that to help these poor folks recover from this massive cognitive disconnect with our nation, we make sure they have plenty of opportunities to hear the Declaration of Independence when it is lawful to recite it in their presence.  Any time Democrats are in a public place, they should have the opportunity to start understanding this document by having it frequently read to them.  Perhaps, with frequent and effective dosages, these poor, misguided people can be cured of their addiction to statism and finally enjoy all the benefits of liberty and freedom that this document guarantees us.

It’s for their benefit, and we shall do this because we love them.

UPDATE: Deep in the comments section is this first-hand account from one of the activists reading the Declaration of Independence:

I was one of the three who had the police called on them. And I can tell you from first hand experience that the reading was not directed at the democratic tent. It was being held on the curb facing out into the street, directed at the people passing by. It was a member of the Democratic party who came out of his tent and approached us, saying that we looked like “Nazi Soldiers.” Now call me crazy, but I believe comparing three young men to Nazi Soldiers just for reading the Declaration of Independence on the 4th of July is downright offensive to most people.

As far as the police, they just approached us (as we were well down the block and walking away at this point) and told us to leave them alone. The responding officer informed us that this was a family event and didn’t want any trouble. He said that people were there to have fun and not hear our “Rhetoric.” We tried explaining that there is no rhetoric in reading the Declaration of Independence verbatim. After a brief conversation the officer must have picked up on the fact that we were just three people not causing any trouble (contrary to what they heard from the Democratic tent I’m sure…) and we parted without anyone getting in trouble.

    Greg’s characterization of liberals is, naturally, untrue and corresponds to no real-life person. I doubt he’d appreciate my view of teabaggers, and I’m sure, given his record of intolerance for opposing viewpoints, he’ll just delete the following.

    My guess is that this didn’t happen at all like the way Greg describes it. My guess is that the teabaggers were being their usual obnoxious selves and that’s what the folks objected to. First of all, there’s the hygiene issue. Your average teabagger is pretty stinky. Of course, you’d smell bad too if you spent the entire day with your obese body crammed into a Medicare-paid-for Hoveround scooter (except for the time it takes you to put together a badly spelled sign saying “GUMMINT HAND OFF MY MEDIKARE”).

    Then there’s the fact that since ‘baggers hate and fear learning and education (witness the Texas GOP platform once the teabaggers got done with it that opposed teaching critical thinking skills in school), listening to them attempt to read the Declaration must have been really painful. There’s a lot of two-syllable or more words in there! It probably takes them five minutes to slowly sound out each sentence. Also, they probably keep pronouncing the long s as an f (”becomes necefsary for one people to disfolve”).

    Remember that episode of Star Trek, where the cave people revere the Constitution and refer to it as the “Weduh Peebo” because they can’t read or understand it? Teabagger are just like that, they revere the Declaration and Constitution, but their understanding of it is basically nil.

    I’d call the police if a bunch of mouth-breathing, racist, numbskulls showed up next to me in Confederate drag mumbling through the Declaration too.

    Jim Young - I’m currently reading a couple of fine books regarding the Revolution and the lessons of history. The first is “The radicalism of the American Revolution” by Gordon S. Wood. Currently on page 215, chapter 12. I’m also reading Chernow’s biography on Alexander Hamilton (left it at work to read at lunch). I’m also reading Simon Schama’s “A History of Britain: At the Edge of the World 3500 B.C. - 1603 A.D. At page 173,”Aliens and Natives” chapter discussing Henry III. You conservatards really need to do something beside watch Fox News.

    Yes, we are all Americans with different opinions at times. But, the foundation of our House should always be protected or we will fall as a nation. Read Ameritopia, by Mark Levin. It is a great history lesson that teaches the foundations of our constitution and country.

    I read with the group in Manassas on Wednesday. It was tough because I am African American and the looks I got that day from other A. Americans as I stood with a mostly white group was tough to endure. But, my freedom was paid for by the blood, sweat and flowing tears of many back americans. I celebrate that freedom and the freedom that was fought for by all Americans no matter their color. I am free to think for myself, choose where I stand.

    I would like Mini to please come to a Tea Party Meeting, that is if you can get around all of our scooters. Maybe what you are smelling is the stinky media. Once again, the media has painted a picture for you and it is so not true. The Tea Party Rally last year I attended was amazing. As I looked around the crowd I saw my daughter’s dance teacher, the cashier at the supermarket, some people I recognized from church. These people were white, black, young, & old . They were people who lived and worked and my community.

    Mini
    Actually I think Greg’s characterization of liberals is pretty accurate as you’ve so eloquently proven. Instead of offering any kind of intelligent argument or counter point, you go right into a string of insults and liberal stereotypical generalizations of what the tea party is. Maybe you should take more time to understand what we are about, and less time watching Star Trek. Its a freedom thing.

    Not only are you wrong about the tea party, and the people that support it, but you are wrong in your guess about what really happened. I should know, I was one of the three people that made the reading in front of the Democratic tent. Greg has most of it right, but what he really didn’t detail was the treatment we received. We were not rude, belligerent, nor obstructive, but as soon as we began reading the Declaration of Independence, we were verbally assaulted by the chairman at the tent. He called me a hippy, and my good friend, who is also a Marine, a nazi soldier… for reading the Declaration of Independence. And I’ll tell you mini, we read it well and we read it proud.

    The cop was doing his job, responding to a complaint, but after a short discussion, realized the complaint was baseless, and we went on our way.

    I only have one regret…well, two: that I have but one life to give for my country, and that I didn’t have my camera on at that moment.

    id imagine anytime a conversation dissolves into name calling, our ‘founding fathers’ would be embarrassed. period. although their debates, disagreements, & conversations were filled with emotion, they also were filled with intelligence. there is this theory of “dumbing down of america” & i wonder if its actually happened to both political parties.
    i dont get the divisive nature of today’s political conversations. i hear the ranting & raving about the founding fathers & the constitution, yet their ideas of freedom & independence are disrepected when a differing view or idea is met with simpleton ridicule.

    im a liberal -
    i dont stink, well..maybe i do - after i work a long day & lately it’s been hot. its been really hot.
    im not on welfare, like paying less taxes, run my own small business, & fed up with politics.
    i distrust the govt. i think people in power do shady things everyday.
    i believe reagan sold weapons to the iranians to fund wars against democratically elected central american govt’s AND
    clinton sold us out to the chinese & now, they hold a nice chunk of our “debt” & we cant be proud of anything labeled “made in america” cause we dont make anything. we buy all of our crap from a communist country. yes - communist.

    time for a change. yes…i know. that pesky word “change”.
    so obama used it first but who cares?
    we should change.
    we should be better to each other.
    we should listen & respect our fellow citizen’s ideas & opinions without browbeating.

    And just maybe, like our founding fathers, we will propel this republic to a better, smarter, & kinder place to live.

    Mini must have spent too much time in the heat and is confused. He obviously was at a OWS rally, where people really did spend days and days outside without showers, etc. Where people really did crap on police cars, rape, etc. At OWS rallies people attack the police and vandalize. At Tea Party rallies, people conduct themselves with respect and pride. There is no need for the police to show up in case things get out of hand, because they never do with the Tea Party. How many Tea Party rally attendees have been arrested around the Country compared to how many OWS attendees. That’s all that needs to be said when comparing the right and the left in this Country.

    Oh ya, how many mothers attending Tea Party rallies put their own child on a rail line to stop a train?

    Still, the bottom line here is that some members of the local tea party protested by reading the Declaration in front of a Democratic party headquarters tent on the 4th of July and, instead of joining them, the Democrates called the police. It would have been better if they - the Democrates - had separately stepped out and then read the Constitution to the tea party folks. But alas, I cannot imagine that they have a copy of either document nor do they care for what either document says.

    While I was one of those reading the Declaration of Independence, it was obvious there were some proud people in the audience and some ‘annoyed’ people. I was not even aware that the police had been called. Having now learned of it, it reminds me of the time I spent in the Soviet Union: whenever someone did not like what you did, they called the KGB. Typical, tyrannical, socialist-mentality behavior.

    Characteristically, the only time ‘lefties’ support the police is when they can use the police force as a tool of government oppression. Otherwise, they defecate on police cars, as the Occupy Wall Street groups — around the entire country — demonstrated. That’s when they’re not busy destroying buildings, breaking glass, burning cars, raping their female colleagues, stealing lap-tops from their sleeping cohorts, and then complaining about police brutality when they’re arrested. (I agree: Mini must have attended an OWS rally and could’t read the signs….)

    It’s a shame how these people distort the truth. That’s why they object so strongly to indisputable facts, particularly written documents like the Declaration of Independence. That’s why our persistence is essential. As Orwell said, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”

    And, whether or not you have read Obama’s early-in-life divine autobiography which is a compilation of self-aggrandizing deceits… by now everyone should realize what Mark Levin said about this Marxist would-be dictator three years ago: “Obama is a serial liar.” Apparently, well-spoken deceit is the only talent he has (and even that requires a teleprompter). Lamentably, his followers seem to regard this contemptible characteristic as some form of virtue which they cultivate. And, if you expose their lies, they’ll ‘call the cops’ …KGB. Lenin would be proud.

    No tactic is off the table when dealing with the “Democrat” - code word for tool of the democratic socialist.

    Giddy at the prospect of yet another term under the “dictatorship of the proletariat”, they are prone to respond to any threat with the gusto of a hound dog in heat.

    They are of course, unknowingly or not, fulfulling the objectives of friends of the current administration over at socialist international.

    The Political Perspective of the
    Democratic Socialists of America

    Section 5: The Role of Electoral Politics

    “Democratic socialists reject an either-or approach to electoral coalition building, focused solely on anew party or on realignment within the Democratic Party.”

    ” Much of progressive, independent political action will continue to occur in Democratic Party primaries in support of candidates who represent a broad progressive coalition. In such instances, democratic socialists will support coalitional campaigns based on labor, women, people of color and other potentially anti-corporate elements.

    Electoral tactics are only a means for democratic socialists; the building of a powerful anti-corporate coalition is the end. Where third party or non-partisan candidates mobilize such coalitions, democratic socialists will build such organizations and candidacies.”

    I believe a little clarification might be necessary. The recitation of the Declaration of Independence occurred multiple times at different festivity locations on the 4th. The recitation involving the Dems was only one of the them. The last recitation, at around 8:30 PM, which some of you participated in, was after the Dems incident which was earlier in the afternoon.

    I so enjoy the BVBL blog! PWC residents and beyond have an excellent forum with the added advantage of news that the “Press” ignores. The Left wanders in and does what the Left always does, sling their stupidity, distort facts, and just outright lies. In their twisted reality - they consider this truth - but most of the Left should be heavily medicated for their own sake. The rest of the population expresses their common sense, their commitment to the Constitution, and yes, that old fashion word that every generation must discover, patriotism.

    Clearly, there should be more public efforts to remind Americans who we are as Americans - particularly as the 6 November national election approaches.

    On 17 September 2012, Constitution Day will be celebrated . . . by some. The entire week will be Constitition Week. Patriotic Americans, no doubt mostly Conservatives, should consider ways to celebrate this event. In addition, they should encourage our local school system to undertake a dynamic program for Constitition Week and turn around the annual failures of educating students about the fundemental law of America.

    As for the lawlessness of the Left (look for massive voter fraud in November) and their outrageous spewing of toxic lies, these fools are alienating legal residents who may just vote in November.

    Just a thought for future encounters with the loony Left in Prince William County. . . Always have a means of video recording since these deranged leftists will always offer a show.

    A video of the Left “in action” is worth the effort and will convince many more independents why they must dismiss leftwing ravings for what they are.

    Besides . . . . when the Left “acts out,” they are really entertaining to the sane.

    And as for Gordon S. Wood, “TRD,” it is little surprise that you would find merit in the work of an historian who “is the favorite historian of America’s liberal establishment,” whose “virtues” lie chiefly in that they provide “a hammer with which to bash American individualism and capitalism.”
