Permits were not obtained for using the Downtown Courthouse plaza today in Greensboro. The event has shifted to a large parking lot at a furniture store in an ethnic portion of the town and the newspaper is reporting that there store owner has not agreed to the parking lot's use.
From the local online paper:
"There was apparently some confusion Tuesday as to the location of the Minuteman rally. After failing to secure permits for a rally at Phill G. McDonald governmental plaza, the group contacted Guilford County Republican Party Chairman Marcus Kindley for help securing a site downtown.
Kindley and Arthur said they had discussed holding the rally at American Furniture Warehouse on High Point Road. But the store's owner said he'd never heard of the group and hasn't authorized the event."
This Greensboro ralley is one big SNAFU. The public demonstration permits were not obtained and the secondary location has been rejected.
I called the store on High Point Road. Per the store manager, there will be no rally in his parking lot. Police will be present to tell folks to leave if they are not shopping at the store.
It's happening. I tell you man. Coast to coast. From the grassroots up. It is going to take a lot of appeasers and compromisers and phony conservatives down. It is happening. This steam rollin' train is beginning to really ramp up now.
