I agree! Obama is a Communist
Today the Town Criers completed their 104th engagement of the public on St. George Street in the historic district of St. Augustine, Florida. The Town Criers are a committee of the Saint Augustine Tea Party. [See “A look at Town Crier’s history” in this publication August 26, 2013]. The Town Criers reintroduced a sign which states, “Obama is a Communist”. [From May 2012 through the election in November 2012 a similar sign was presented to the public which received widespread support.] Today, “I agree” could be heard from one end of the street to the other. At times the public would break out with applause as shown in the picture above. “The public fully understands who Obama is. The establishment politicians and the media refuse to acknowledge the truth,” a Town Crier said.

This marvelous woman, pictured on the left with her son-in-law, got up out of her wheelchair to protest the communist in the White House. She is holding up the World War II Victory sign. She asked if she could be photographed with both signs. She confided that it made her feel proud to be able to stand up and resist.
Old Town Trolley Tours Employee Hostile to Town Crier Activities
The Old Town Trolley Tours employee, pictured in slideshow, has resented the Town Crier presence for some time. Back in June 2012, shortly after the Criers started carrying the “Obama is a Communist” sign, he challenged the Committee’s right to engage the public by claiming that City permits were required. The Town Criers politely reminded him of the First Amendment. The Criers report that they are mindful of the rights of business and shop owners and never force themselves where they are not wanted. As a result there have not been any incidents with the City of St. Augustine or the St. Augustine Police Department.
Last week, this Trolley Tours individual tried to minimize the Crier’s effort, as they approached the area with their signs, by shouting out that people are only laughing at them. As Providence would have it, a large group of people responded to his comment with, “Were not laughing.”
This week, after taking pictures, he challenged the Town Criers with the question, “Will your article be criticism or one with ideas in it?” A Tea Party spokesman responded to this reporter, “Ideas for a progressive are the “cult like” proposals that match their Marxist agenda. Criticism for them is the hearing of the truth. Like Obama, Communism is all about lies and distortions. No sane man accepts tyranny willingly.”
