What if you planned a protest, but there was no issue to highlight? It happened to several left leaning groups on Wednesday as the members took to protesting in front of Bill Posey’s office at the Viera government center.
Several Brevard activist groups, including United Third Reich…er… Bridge, Speak Out Brevard and the county’s Democratic Party, had scheduled the Wednesday protest, but by the time they got to the party their key issue was gone! The president had already issued an executive order and a federal court had issued a ruling that illegal immigrant families be reunited within 30 days.
So, what did our merry band of protesters do? They protested anyway. By the way, Bill Posey co-sponsored legislation to require families in those circumstances be reunited the week before the protest…so why were they protesting him?
You may want to ask Sanjay Patel, Posey’s Democratic opponent in November. He was there…and this was more campaign stunt than anything meaningful!
