You thought I was kidding yesterday about the Dems demanding to approve signs and literature at their convention this weekend. Here is the policy:
"All flyers must be approved by (unnamed) DPW staff...before being distributed on convention hall chairs. All flyers that are distributed without approval (from unnamed and unelected staff) will be subject to a fine. The DPW reserves the right to make final decisions regarding flyer approval."
Same policy for signs. Now, when the unnamed staff "reserves the right", may I ask who gave them the right to reserve? Have they lost their minds? Frankly, I'll bet fewer than 5 percent of you know who the chair of the party is and none of you know who the staff director, who will act as censor-in-chief, is or how she was selected.
Fighting Bob Fest, by contrast, welcomes all comers and all signs, literature, video tape and banners.
The DPW is not all about censorhsip. Read this: "This convention is going to be incredibly fun-filled and energetic." They might have added, "DPW will tell you when to express enthusiam and energy. Those who do not follow orders are suspected of Green leanings and will be removed from the hall."
Where is my old party?
