It’s in a public park for cryin’ out loud. Stop calling it a protest sign and just call it one dam big picnic blanket.

No room for free speech in Denver.

That’s awesome! Are they going to fight the order to take it down? If not, why not?

Thanks for posting this. I’m glad we got the opportunity to see the lettering.

You can bet if it said KEEP ABORTION LEGAL, there would be nothing but silence.

"Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech"

There was a time when people valued that right. Actually, I suspect that the law enforcement officers who are enforcing the demand to remove the sign are sympathetic. I don't see any sense of urgency in the comments. From the article:

"They had not brought enough water and food. They came down to get water and food. There was a rumor that they went to lunch but it's not true. They are just taking a break," said Andrea Burns, the community relations manager with the Jefferson County Sheriff's office. "Our intention is to take it down as soon as possible, once they are re-hydrated," she said .... Currently, the park is working to have the group remove the sign as soon as possible.

It would be nice if "as soon as possible" turned out to be right after the convention wraps up. I approve of free speech, especially political speech, whether or not I happen to agree with the message.

It says DNC Destroys uNborn Children.

“set a new record for protest signs as measured by the Guinness Book of World Records”

Beats pogo stick pole vaulting I suppose.

Yesterday we had Alan Keyes, Jessie Lee Peterson and Rev Clenard
Childress of www.blackgenocide.org at MLK Park a block from
Denver’s new mega PP baby death camp.

Of course the media overlooked our Power in the Park rally,
but Michelle Malkin gave it nice coverage prior to the event.

Will post some photos in a bit.

If they do take it down without a fight I hope they do it with a lot of loud statements about freedom of speech and attacks on freedom of speech by the oppressive democrat party.
