Doug Bruce's Pathetic "Protest Picnic" Fizzles, Fortunately

  • 18 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols
TABOR author Doug Bruce.

Westword’s Chase Woodruff warned us this was coming Friday–legendary anti-tax crusader, author of the 1992 Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR) amendment, and convicted felon tax cheat Doug Bruce’s plan to strike a blow for liberty yesterday in Colorado Springs’ Memorial Park:

Notorious conservative activist Douglas Bruce, architect of the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights and a former state lawmaker himself, has even announced that he will hold a “protest picnic” at the Fallen Firefighter Memorial in Colorado Springs on Sunday, March 29, issuing an “open invitation for Mayor [John] Suthers to come arrest me for peaceably assembling with my fellow Americans.” [Pols emphasis]

That’s right, freedom fighters, the author of Colorado Republicans’ most cherished law–so awesome that no other state in America has been dumb visionary enough to implement it–risked arrest yesterday by daring to hold a (potentially) illegal gathering, in order to show Gov. Jared Polis and the entire world that freedom matters more than some silly pandemic disease that [insert COVID-19 misinformation here].

But as Pam Zubeck of the Colorado Springs Independent informs us via the Twitters, arrests weren’t necessary:

Because Bruce’s “protest picnic” for God, country and coronavirus freedom drew a half-dozen people. Keeping their distance as you can see, despite their God-given right to swap droplets.

And that, on balance, has us feeling much better about our fellow Coloradans. Thank all but a very few of you.

    1. Perhaps the Ladies are off camera, in the kitchens fixing food?  Which conveniently allows them to exercise some good sense and stay home, away from other people.

    2. This Sunday picnic social event was arranged by Doug Bruce . . .

      . . . You’re kidding, right? Funny!

      (Maybe the mail-order dates (date?) got hung up in screening at the airport???

      And, Amazon delivery times are getting longer . . . )

  1. Hopefully, they will have many more people attending packed Easter services.
    After all, Jesus was a true American patriot who killed off the dinosaurs so we could use their pee to power our ICE automobiles.

  2. I don't see the intrepid jon caldara in the group – he was on-air over the weekend whinging and crying about house arrest, martial law and his rights to infect the public. I can't believe there are idiots out there still not taking this seriously.

  3. Which one is Bruce?

    By the way, the dick chose the fallen firefighters memorial. I'm retired Aurora FD and 45 of my active AFD brothers and sisters and cops have tested positive
