Virginia’s Dem Governor Issues Order Banning Demonstrations At Charlottesville Robert E. Lee Monument

The Governor of Virginia has issued an executive order banning people from demonstrating at the Lee monument that was the subject of protests during the Charlottesville Unite the Right protest.

According to a statement from Terry McAuliffe, he is shutting down any demonstration at that monument “until new emergency regulations have been approved and implemented by the Virginia Department of General Services.”

The Governor is giving the Department of General Services three months just to come up with those regulations.

The Governor’s office has decided that demonstrations at the statue could lead to more civil unrest. McAuliffe directly cited the events from the failed “Unite the Right” gathering as reasons to stop people from holding demonstrations at that location. According to the statement from the Governor, there have been multiple requests to hold demonstrations there since Charlottesville but they’re not prepared to allow that.

Although it may seem logical to stop demonstrations at a location that just had a horrible instance of violence occur, the Governor’s definition of “demonstration” is pretty wide. With the new executive order you can’t even fly a flag at the Lee memorial in Richmond.

Terry McAuliffe called the events domestic terrorism and said they weren’t prepared to hold rallies there again:

“In spite of weeks of preparation, the city of Charlottesville was the target of an act of domestic terrorism that cost one woman her life, and had a helicopter accident lead to the deaths of two state troopers,” said Governor McAuliffe. “In the aftermath of this tragedy, several groups have requested permits to hold similar-styled events at the Lee Monument in Richmond. State and local officials need to get ahead of this problem, so that we have the proper legal protections in place to allow for peaceful demonstrations, but without putting citizens and property at risk. Let me be clear, this executive order has nothing to do with infringing upon first amendment rights. This is a temporary suspension, issued with the singular purpose of creating failsafe regulations to preserve the health and well-being of our citizens and ensuring that nothing like what occurred in Charlottesville happens again.”

Terry McAuliffe isn’t letting any demonstrations go on there until they can implement new emergency recommendations but those recommendations won’t be available for three months:

Governor McAuliffe will issue a related executive order convening a task force, headed by Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security Brian Moran to study the safety concerns that arose from the events of August 12th. The Department of General Services will craft their new emergency regulations based on the recommendations of this new task force, which will be issued within three months.

The executive order has a laundry list of things you can’t do there now which actually included holding flags:

No demonstrations shall be authorized at the Lee Monument in the absence of a permit issued by the Department of General Services.  The term “demonstrations” includes demonstrations, processions, picketing, speechmaking, marching, vigils, and all other like forms of conduct, that involve the communication or expression of views or grievances, engaged in by one or more persons, the conduct of which is reasonably likely to draw a crowd or onlookers.  This term includes the display of flags, banners, or other demonstratives designed to communicate a message.

Breitbart has called into question the First Amendment ramifications of McAuliffe’s move, suggesting it is a breach of constitutional rights.

“A 90-day ban on expression here violates the First Amendment,” the outlet quotes one constitutional law expert as stating. “This sort of restriction is subject to ‘strict scrutiny,’ under which the restriction is presumed unconstitutional, and the government must prove that is it narrowly tailored to achieve a compelling public interest. This EO should fail that test.”

“However,” the expert continued, “this is Virginia, which on appeal is in the Fourth Circuit. That court is now the most liberal appeals court in the nation, to the left of the often-maligned Ninth Circuit–ten liberals, two moderates, and only three conservatives. And there are no vacancies on the 15-member court, so it would probably take multiple consecutive terms of Republican presidents to take it back.”

INTERNET REACTS: Mike Cernovich Breaks Bombshell John Conyers Sex Abuse Story

Published

on

The internet is exploding at the sensational breaking news by Mike Cernovich about Democrat Rep. John Conyers’ repeated sexual abuse of female staffers and use of taxpayer funds for settlements related to that abuse.

Buzzfeed recognizes Mike Cernovich gave them the story, stating:

“Cernovich said he gave the documents to BuzzFeed News for vetting and further reporting, and because he said if he published them himself, Democrats and congressional leaders would “try to discredit the story by attacking the messenger.” He provided them without conditions. BuzzFeed News independently confirmed the authenticity of the documents with four people directly involved with the case, including the accuser.”

BuzzFeed’s article continues:

“Documents from the complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News include four signed affidavits, three of which are notarized, from former staff members who allege that Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing their hands sexually, and rubbing their legs and backs in public. Four people involved with the case verified the documents are authentic.”

Over on Twitter, reaction to the news of Cernovich’s involvement in the story has been swift and sometimes salty:

Vice, Newsweek Silent After Journalist Accused Of Robbing, Injuring A Woman At Cernovich Event

Published

on

Vice, Newsweek and The Guardian remain silent after a journalist claiming to work for the media outlets was accused of robbing a woman and injuring her in the process outside Mike Cernovich’s Columbia University event in New York on Monday evening.

As New York Daily News reports, police arrested 30-year-old Arvind Dilawar – who now faces robbery and possession of stolen property charges – outside the event after he allegedly ripped a cellphone out of a 34-year-old woman’s hands and ran off.

As Mike Cernovich reported earlier today via Twitter, that woman is believed to be a journalist who was covering the protest outside Mike Cernovich’s event.

As of earlier this afternoon, Dilawar’s website – which is currently password protected – lists him as a writer for The Guardian, Vice and Newsweek.

Those outlets have not responded to requests for comment from Cernovich Media related to the incident.

Specifically, Cernovich Media wanted to know how those outlets were handling the serious allegations aimed at Dilawar. The writer himself has also not responded to a request from Cernovich Media for comment.

The circumstances surrounding Dilawar’s alleged theft remain unclear but an account from at least one other journalist covering last night’s protest outside Columbia University indicates that alt-leftists were less than welcoming towards journalists.

The hostility appears to have been rooted in a fear of having their faces exposed to the public – probably not an unfounded fear considering the infamous tale of one Eric Clanton.

Despite attempts by the alt-left to disrupt Mike Cernovich’s event at Columbia yesterday, the Gorilla Mindset author’s speech went more or less smoothly. Catch the full speech below.
