An Outrage! The Constitution is Being Destoryed!

Helen Glover, who is a host of a Rhode Island radio station, was on a tea party float in the Bristol Fourth of July Parade. Apparently they tea party float was kicked out of the parade because they had people out handing out pocket US Constitutions! Later they were told “Don’t even bother wasting the stamp for an application next year.” They were kicked out for life because they were handing out pocket constitutions. I hope that we as Americans can stand up to this injustice and show our government that we are stronger than them. America was rally together to restore our FREEDOM!

  1. found a link…..not nearly as communist as some might hope….

    “The Rhode Island Tea Party fanned protest throughout Rhode Island after Bristol parade organizers confiscated the group’s parade-day flyers and told the Tea Party it is not welcome back next year. Parade organizers say they simply enforced the rules that govern all parade participants — no distribution of materials from floats or marchers in the parade. They say the Tea Party float participants were told the rules ahead of time, were warned not to do it, but went ahead and did it anyway.
    Said parade chairwoman Judy Squires, “Their float was very well done, very tastefully done. We don’t have a problem with the Tea Party at all. The only issue is they were told not to distribute the flyers, and they violated the rules. We would have been upset with any float that did the same thing.”
    Ms. Squires said the rules exist entirely for the safety of everyone, marchers and spectators. She said it’s dangerous for marchers or float participants to distribute flyers, throw candy, or even hand out copies of the U.S. Constitution, because those actions invite spectators into the street with the moving vehicles. She cited a tragic accident last year in the Tampa Bay, Fla., area, when a 9-year-old boy became entangled in the wheel of a passing float and was killed at a parade.”

    • They were not by a long shot the only people handing out things at the parade. Many people still handed things out and did not get in trouble.

  2. jdalley,

    Irrelevant that others did it too. I am all about standing up for our Constitution and our rights, but don’t con us into jumping into the mess that this group made. Won’t help anyone.

    • I’m sorry but I disagree with you there. This is not a weird group. It is a group that supports the constitution, and we are being held to a double standard, but I see your point and understand it.
