Skip to comments.NH Dems to Protest against Free Staters
Posted on 06/20/2004 11:12:44 PM PDT by Dada Orwell
Stung by early Free State Project success in the Live Free or Die State, NH Democrats have decided to protest outside an FSP-connected charity event. The "Liberty Dinner" on June 25 is meant to raise tuition money for lower-income students, enabling them to escape government schools and attend private ones. Among the speakers will be New Hampshire's popular libertarian-leaning governor, Craig Benson.
"The governor and the Free Staters share the same far-right agenda of gutting our state government and public institutions," writes protest organizer Chaz Proulx.
Free Staters seemed alternately surprised and flattered to encounter a protest from the Democrat Party at this early stage, particularly one ocurring at an otherwise innocuous charity event.
"Am I the only one who thinks protesting a fundraiser for schoolchildren is a bad idea?" responded one of them on an NH Dems message board.
Initially ruffled by the opposition, Free Staters soon noticed increases in donations and RSVP's for the fundraiser.
"They (the Democrats) probably made $2000 for us," writes Liberty Dinner organizer James Maynard.
Why weren't there any cameras there? Imagine the headline, "DEMS PROTEST MONEY FOR POOR KIDS!"
The demonization has begun.
