It's liberals verus ultraliberals at the Democratic National Convention
Don’t try packing a jar of urine around in the city of Denver these days. It’s no longer legal if you’re carrying the container for nefarious purposes. The Denver City Council has adopted this as a new ordinance.
Why, you might ask, should this sort of problem come to the attention of so august a body?
Simple answer: The Democratic National Convention.
This ordinance also applies to feces and other “noxious substances” and is spurred by reports that protesters have been known to use bombs and other containers full of such substances to hurl at police.
Whether this group includes actual delegates or not remains to be seen, but news reports indicated a city councilman had information that an entire house was being used to store these substances.
What makes this so funny is that the groups who are threatening to protest the convention are from the same side of the political spectrum as the Democratic National Committee but are mad because the DNC isn’t moving fast enough in their direction. Yet.
One of the leaders of a protest group called Re-create 68 was quoted in the Rocky Mountain News as saying that the ordinance was intended to “smear protesters.”
