In a further sign that large factions of the “Democratic” Party are enemies of democracy, the Charlotte Observer reports that the Democratic National Committee is asking the site of the 2012 Democratic Convention to ban camping in order to avoid Occupy-inspired protests:
o prepare for the Democratic National Convention, the city of Charlotte is considering an ordinance that would prohibit camping on all city property, which could stifle the ongoing Occupy Charlotte protest.
In addition, the ordinance would prohibit the possession of “noxious” substances, along with items such as pipes, chains or padlocks if their intended use would be to block a street, sidewalk or building entrance.
The proposal comes as some cities are trying to evict “Occupy” protesters, including Oakland, Calif., where a protester was injured this week when police dispersed a crowd. In addition, Charlotte and Tampa, the host city for the Republican National Convention, are studying how to manage expected crowds and protests for next year’s conventions.
The DNC and many Democratic mayors and Governors around the country are working hard to convince the progressive base, especially activist young people, to stay home come election day 2012. They may just succeed.
