"Recall Polis" Dead-Enders Take Decidedly Creepy Turn

  • 13 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

CBS4 Denver reported Monday:

A group of people protested outside of a restaurant in Lyons after the state seized its liquor and suspended its license to serve it over the weekend. The Colorado Department of Revenue says the Lyons Den Restaurant and Taphouse continued to operate with indoor dining despite several warnings and Level Red restrictions.

On Friday, the restaurant posted to its Facebook page saying it will not give up and “won’t be bullied.”

The owner says the Monday protest is meant to be peaceful.

Over at the still-30,000 strong Recall Polis 2020 Facebook group, the Lyons Den protest was warmly received:

But in the comments, the tenor of the conversation escalated into something pretty frightening, well beyond what we’ve seen even within this excitable private forum:

From there, things got a little more specific:

And then the conversation in this discussion thread turned more recently to a protest set to take place at the Colorado Capitol Saturday:

Based on the fact that such explicitly threatening content is not being moderated by the owners of this private Facebook group, we have to assume that the Recall Polis 2020 “organization” (whatever sorry form that may take) either agrees with these sentiments or do not object to them enough to remove them–despite the fact that it could expose them to legal liability. As for any protest set to occur in Denver Saturday, here’s another opportunity to be grateful for the fact that unlike most of the state, open carrying of firearms is illegal there.

Knowledge is power: and although we don’t relish reprinting this kind of disturbing content, there’s an argument that being honest about the deteriorating psychological state of our state’s hard-right fringe is urgently necessary for public safety reasons. Every Republican voice in Colorado–especially those calling for “civil disobedience” against COVID-19 public health orders–has an obligation to condemn these threats against Gov. Jared Polis without delay.

It has got to stop, folks. The never-ending “recall campaign” may be laughable, but these threats are no laughing matter.

  1. If State Police knock on their door with guns drawn like they do in Florida, these conspirators will all universally sing how it was just a joke.  No joke.

  2. “dead enders take decidedly creepy turn……”

    What turn? These wackos have been creepy from the very beginning. And yes, CSP should be paying visits to the “mouths that roar” with their threats.

    Don’t like Polis’ policies? The chance to do something about that comes in November, 2022.

    1. Their fundamental problem is that the majority of voters actually like having health insurance and fiscally responsible representation.  What are you going to do when people you need to convince want solutions instead of conspiracies?  One obvious solution would be to develop policies that have a chance to work for a broad number of groups.  How quaint.

    2. If you believe the recall people, the opportunity to do something about that comes every 60 days when the guys with the Budweiser boxes announce that they are holding off on submitting their petitions.

      Send money to the perpetual recall committee. Or better yet, sign up for monthly automatic donations.

  3. When I went to school, "illegal" meant something different than "I disagree with this."  Anyone have recommendations for an up to date on-line dictionary I should consult before trying to talk or write to members of this group?

    Since the group is obviously in favor of "legal" action, I'm certain they have gotten their permit for use of the Capitol, right?

    And finally, the weather on Saturday is expected to be

    Mostly Cloudy, 28 F (feels like 23 F) with a 23 % chance of precipitation.

    Any guess about how many will come out for the "Huge Trump Rally" at our state Capitol building?

    1. A couple hundred , I’d guess. Not including those paid to attend like provocateurs, police, and journalists. ( and security for the journalists). All the smart lefties will be staying away. 
       

      Hopefully not the machine gun nest guy, who was never charged with endangering the public. 
      Nor the ex-cop who wants to “bring BLM protesters to God”. 

      1. I'm hearing that Soros is bankrolling the paid provocateurs so that they will act insane so the organizers can play the victims.  Any shenanigans by this group will be disavowed as organized by the left if there are any bad optics.
