Here is a video report from North Carolina about the Concord Mills Mall in Concord, which is a suburb of Charlotte. The mall has ordered a Conservative Kiosk to vacate the mall because they say the conservative bumper-stickers and other merchandise they sell is "inflammatory." A Letter to the Editor seemed to get the ball rolling on getting the Kiosk kicked out, but the mall apparently has lots of liberal merchandise selling freely throughout the mall. The reporter said they did some checking and found that the owner of the mall has been a frequent contributor to Democrat candidates, including President Barack Obama.
Another example of how the liberals support free speech. . . . . (Watch Video)

Can you say ‘boycott’?
Typical for North Carolina.
Is the owner of the mall the same one that forbid the ‘Tea Party’ in Atlanta on July 4th?
Maybe conservatives would be wise to quit spending their money in this mall.
I hope every Democrat owned business goes bust.
The guy who owns that mall is the same nasty bastard who owns Pentagon Fashion Centre. Two years ago they raised the parking fee there on the day after Thanksgiving, delivering a slap in the face to all Christmas shoppers. They have a huge parking garage, and it is usually half-empty. So none of this surprises me.
Dang it!! Now I have to find me another Bass Pro.
[Maybe if I just go to the Bass Pro and not the rest of the mall......]
The same according to
“Simon Malls is once again going after Americans who dare to use their Freedom of Speech in a non liberal way. You may have heard how Simon Malls shut down the 4th of July Tea Party in Atlanta Georgia...”
The owner is Mel Simon of Simon Malls.
He has been a generous contributor to Democratic causes and politicians, including Barack Obama.
This is pretty good...
From the Free Market Warrior himself:
It’s the mall owner’s right to choose what merchants can sell in his mall. That said, it’s also the right of every consumer to choose not to patronize his mall in response.
Why don’t you contact your local Bass Pro store and the corporate headquarters and let them know you will not be shopping there, due to the actions of their landlord, Simon.
I think the key is contacting, Simon’s tenant stores. If they find out they are losing business because of Simon’s political agenda, they will freak out.
I bought my Reagan poster from this guy.
The reporter is ridiculous. “Some of this stuff is pretty inflammatory...”
Does she hold up an example of ANYTHING inflammatory? No. “Impeach Obama” is not inflammatory. She needs to get over HER bias.
Yes this is the bunch that forced the canceling of the Atlanta Tea Party.
They own malls all over the country. In Pittsburgh they include the Ross Mall and South Hills Village.
Boycott them and write, call or email them to tell them why.
Simon malls have a sleazy mall gift card policy with monthly service fees and time limits on gift cards. I will personally go out of my way to avoid Simon malls at all costs.
The owners, btw, may simply recognize that the Democrats are more likely to retaliate than Republicans. Democrats’ “contributions” from the wealthy are often more a form of “protection” than a reflection of political sympathy. It’s why defense companies donate to Democrats.
If some jihadi group wanted to sell videos of fire-bombings that they perpetrated, or 9/11, or the train bombing in Spain, or in England, would the mall call that “inflammatory?”
Go here and insert your state’s name and it will give you a list to choose from. They have the phone number for the mall as well.
Any dim business that goes under gets no sympathy from me. The mall owner has say over tenants and customers have the choice to go elsewhere. Concord Mills is too far for me to hit, even on a weekend. Knowing this, I have a reason to never go there.
In NC, is it legal to deny a commercial or residential lease based on race, religion sexual orientation or political philosophy?
