Progressive Hoax? Fake Tax Day Tea Party Flyer with KKK Symbols Distributed in California
According to You Tube:
"Chico's Tea Party is reacting to flyers posted around Butte County that mockingly promote a Tax Day rally in Downtown Chico next week. Tea Party member B.K. Brooks tells KPAY "I think whoever's behind it is trying to stir up violence against us with misinformation." Brooks will discuss the flier and event tomorrow with the KPAY Morning News and More."
According to the Chico Tea Party website:
"HATEFUL FLYERS THAT FRAUDULENTLY IDENTIFY CHICO TEA PARTY PATRIOTS AND BUTTE COUNTRY REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN POSTED AROUND CHICO ABOUT OUR UPCOMING RALLY. THESE FLYERS WERE NOT CREATED OR POSTED BY OUR GROUP. THIS CLEARLY IS A BLATANT EFFORT TO SILENCE OUR PEACEFUL VOICES AND TO PUT OUR GROUP IN A NEGATIVE LIGHT! CURRENTLY WE STILL PLAN ON HOLDING OUR RALLY TO PROVIDE CITIZENS WHO EMBRACE FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND TOLERANCE OF DISSENTING VIEWS THE OPPORTUNITY TO EDUCATE THE PUBLIC REGARDING OUR CORE VALUES OF CONSTITUTIONALLY LIMITED GOVERNMENT, FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY, AND FREE MARKETS."
