"We can't stand in a park with a yellow shirt on and talk to people about liberty?"

"Turn your phone off!"

May 31, 2014

Minnesotan gubernatorial candidate Chris Holbrook was exercising his 1st Amendment right on Thursday at Lake Calhoun park in Minnesota.

He was simply talking to people about liberty when he was approached by some true Minnesota jackboots destined to stomp out what little rights are left to Americans.

“You guys need to contact the park board and get a permit,” said the jackboot tyrant “You can’t promote, you can’t do any of that stuff without a permit.”

Apparently this power tripping cop's version of the Constitution that he swore an oath to, lacked the part about prohibiting any laws that abridge the freedom of speech.

Welcome to America ladies and gentlemen, when you talk to people in a park about freedom you go to jail for it. How can these thugs sleep at night?

It is however, quite heartening to see people running for office that do not just lay down and roll over.

Here is Chris Holbrook's official page if you'd like to thank him for filming cops and standing up to tyrants.
