Left Wing Radicals vs. Free Speech

A group of organized left wing radicals with no regard for free speech stopped a Donald Trump rally today the only way leftists know how. Through sheer force:

Trump protesters were blocking vehicles leading into Fountain Hills in advance of Donald Trump’s campaign stop Saturday morning.

Three protesters were arrested, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said.

"We had a little problem," Arpaio told the crowd gathered in Fountain Hills. "Demonstrators were trying to disrupt.Three of them are in jail. If they think they’re going to intimidate you the next president of the U.S., it’s not going to happen."

The protesters parked their cars in the middle of the road, unfurling banners reading "Dump Trump" and "Must Stop Trump," and chanting "Trump is hate." Traffic was backed up for miles, with drivers honking in fury.

Protesters were chanting, "Donald Trump, shut it down, Phoenix is the people's town."

It's one thing to disagree with Trump. Our free society provides every opportunity for people who disagree with a particular point of view to engage it in the marketplace of ideas. But the radical left can't be bothered with that. Because enforcing their orthodox PC beliefs is more important than the truth, their aim in nearly every situation is to make sure that speech they disagree with doesn't get a proper hearing. This isn't just juvenile, it's bad for society.

Why do these protesters not get jailed and charged for taking the rights of US Citizens away. The police should be able to clear the roadways. Bring the army. Keep the roads open. The people have rights!

Joe speaking of Left Wing Radicals your friend Debbie Campbell has joined the ilk of Left Wing Nuts that hate chicken farmers. She has joined a group called Concerned Citizens Against Industrial CAFOs. These are the wingnuts that have been fired up by that idiot Kathy Phillips who lost the law suit against the Hudson Farm and Perdue. I think since she got spanked by Jake Day, whose father is the head person at Perdue Farms she has now found her calling as a pay back.

We have had 5 brand new chicken houses with a retention pond behind them go up on the corner of Snowhill and Airport rd. Is this part of this as well? It's right over our water as well. Why are so many popping up? I fear it's to late to do anything as they are almost done

Debbie Campbell - Doesn't seem especially good for the city taxpayers who paid big bucks for the Robbins Ave lift station by Marley Manor. We were promised that it would be needed for future development. High intensity poultry operations and all that goes with it will probably put a damper on development that will create significant economic development. The county and city need to attract jobs that pay a good living wage and this isn't helpful.

Letter to the Editor:

Joe on the same lines as the concern with Debbie Campbell being radicalized with the chicken farming group that hates any type of growth we have an out of state agitator from North Carolina by the name of JC Watts(Craig) who hates Perdue Farms, the Integrator, because he tried to rat them out because he wasn't getting paid what he thought he deserved. That lazy clown was growing lame chickens that he couldn't sell to Perdue for good money and he went out business because of his back stabbing actions. He is living in North Carolina and stirring crap on the Eastern Shore via social media. To show what kind of idiot he is, this is what he posted.

Not sure if you guys are aware of this...but a win here would help tip the seems to me..what do you natives think?

Scott Mahler - I know Jim pretty well - friend of friends (and he married my wife and me last year). Good guy and on the city council currently. He knows a little about what's going on with the CAFOs here and our guys informed him (and the others) when they met with council. We have to beat Andy "Mr Big Chicken" Harris!

JC Watts - Isn't there someone in your group to run opposition?

Scott Mahler - Not at that level, JC. But I have a feeling what's going on here is going to spark people to run for county council. However, there's such a "good old boy" network around here that it's hard to break - not impossible, just hard. I know for me it's been an eye-opening experience about how power, money, and influence run everything, even at the local level.

Brian Knode - JC Watts Hope so. But when Gabby Marie, WET, and I presented last nite to the Dem Club, neither Jake or Jim showed up. Ernie Davis, council member did though.
