Im disgusted. Im embarrassed. My heart is broken for the America that weve lost.
This morning, I woke up at 3am. I proudly announced on Fox and Friends First that Law Enforcement Today was proudly joining a number of other groups in taking part in the largest Back the Blue event in America.
Acclaimed keynote speaker Paul Butler and I were going to be the joint Masters of Ceremonies. We had rock and roll legend Ted Nugent flying in for the National Anthem accompanied by Congressman Clay Higgins, the keynote speaker.
The first wave in the attack came from Facebook. After 6300 people RSVPd to the event, the page was taken down by the social media giant.
It didnt come as a surprise. Im the same guy that just got a lifetime ban from LinkedIn last month for sharing an article about a guy who tried to kill two cops. We are sort of use to it.
But what happened today? Today it became evident just how legitimate the war on law enforcement is.
Congressman Clay Higgins and Ted Nugent are not allowed to attend the event and that apparently comes directly from Governor Cuomos office.
Within hours of announcing that theyd be at the rally, Democrats throughout New York demanded the event be shut down. It was the typical liberal playbook everyone that doesnt tow the line is a racist, sexist, xenophobe, Islamaphobe, etc.
That didnt work. Because the last we checked, its America. We have yet to see anyone shut down Al Sharpton from speaking at an event, or the self-proclaimed Marxists affiliated with Black Lives Matter.
So they tried a new approach. The state police detail ensuring the security of Congressman Higgins and Ted Nugent were told they werent allowed to offer protection.
Their careers were threatened. Then their families were threatened.
So we came up with a new plan. We had dozens of Blue Knights who were going to provide safe passage.
And thats when the governor apparently pulled the ultimate trump card. He instructed the health department to ensure that upon landing in the state, Congressman Higgins and Ted Nugent would either be turned around and sent back or forced into a mandatory 14 day quarantine.
Nassau County Executive Laura Curran, a politician facing ethical issues, took to social media on Thursday to call Nugent a racist. She quickly came under attack on social media.
On Friday night, in a desperate attempt to save face, she blamed the pandemic.
After being reminded of New York States quarantine orders and Nassau Countys protest protocols, Ted Nugent will no longer be attending tomorrows march in Eisenhower Park. Congressman Clay Higgins is also being advised of New York States quarantine Executive Order.
She went on to suggest it was about safety despite precautions taken by event organizers to ensure proper social distancing.
Nassau county will continue to protect our residents right to safe, peaceful protest as is guaranteed under the First Amendment of our Constitution. However, we wont tolerate blatant violations of the Governors quarantine order for travelers from high-risk states.
Funny we have yet to see any enforcement of said orders at riots or Black Lives Matter protests.
In executing their move, the department essentially accomplished their ultimate goal of pitting pro-law groups against each other when we should be fighting against those who seek to divide us.
Law Enforcement Today got in this fight and behind this rally along with groups such as Brothers Before Others and Advocacy for LEOs to show our love, support and appreciate for police officers. We will not be castrated by politicians looking to flex their muscles by destroying the heart and soul of law enforcement and supporters.
Accordingly, our organization and many others are stepping back from the event and will instead be doing our own live stream Saturday.
To our brothers and sisters who still choose to attend the event (safely and social-distanced), we support you. We love you. We cherish you. And this is how we honor you
by fighting for you.
Cuomo and Fredo his son are Fascists.
Pick a different state, like Texas or Florida.
Surround Cuomos house and fire fireworks at it for the next week.
Better yet, drag him out of office and tar and feather him.
He is an abomination and a rogue agent and NOT honoring the IS Constitution. In short - hes a terrorist and should be treated as such.
See my tag line.
Find a red state that will work with you.
Cuomo did say that Conservatives are not wanted in NY.
Stunning and brave.
If it isn’t obvious that the resurgent lockdowns are political only, what will it take?
Don’t surrender just figure out a work around.
I personally attended a huge heartwarming Back the Blue event today in NC
It was awesome!
His son? What century are you living in?
Florida? The same Florida that just cancelled the RNC convention?
So why didn’t this thing go forward without Nugent and the keynote speakers??
so, covid19 is now being used to subvert constitutional rights.
i suppose i could be surprised, but these days it would take a lot to surprise me.
extrapolating, it will get much more ugly before it gets any better...
They need to do better than this.
Oh - where did it occur in NC? Glad you could attend!
How many times does it have to be said? Its not about a virus. Its about control. Quarantine as a last resort. Who couldve think?
I hate these people with a freaking passion
