“The city of Charlottesville has denied a special-event permit application for a Unite the Right anniversary rally and four others demonstrations next summer.
In an email sent shortly before 5 p.m. Monday, city spokeswoman Miriam Dickler said the city is denying the five different applications for events in and around Emancipation Park, where the white nationalist rally took place Aug. 12.
According to official notices signed by City Manager Maurice Jones, the city is denying the applications for Aug. 11 and 12, 2018, a weekend, due to public safety concerns. …”
As we now know, Charlottesville is the Berkeley of East Coast. It is the most shitlib town in all of Dixie and now it is even crazier than ever before.
The First Amendment is a dead letter there. We know for a fact that the Charlottesville Police can’t be trusted to protect either free speech or public safety. Bob Fenwick went so far as to say to Tim Heaphy the other night at the Charlottesville City Council meeting that the Alt-Right were “invaders” and that Antifa and Black Lives Matter were “protecting the city.” This is a place that acts like a foreign country with its own constitution, judicial system and foreign policy.
Should we even want to go back there? It is like trying to hold a rally in North Korea. We know that the media will go out of its way to bury the truth and present us in the worst possible light. We know that the Charlottesville City Council does not believe the US Constitution applies within the city limits. We know that the Charlottesville Police will deputize Antifa as their private militia. We know that the judicial system in Charlottesville is so thoroughly corrupt and unreliable that we will be selectively prosecuted for crimes while Antifa will be given a free hand to engage in violence.
What can we do about the situation? We can either settle our grievances with Charlottesville in state and federal court, which is going to happen anyway, or pressure the Justice Department to intervene. It has become the leftwing version of a sundown town. I suppose filing for the permit and having it denied is another way of proving that Charlottesville won’t allow free speech.
I don’t know. It is a long way until next summer. We will see what happens over the next few months with the lawsuits and our political prisoners who are still there.
Note: Charlottesville recently dropped the felony charge against DeAndre Harris. I’m about as fond of that place as our ancestors were of Lawrence, Kansas.
