Havre Democrats Orchestrate Boycott of Havre Business over 8 Inch Campaign Position Paper
Well shes Baaack! and apparently Ms Friede and the local Democrat power structure have poor memories because we have received reports that she is now threatening another local business owner with a similar boycott because of his support of pro-life candidate Wendy Warburton.
Yesterday Ms Friede, who by the way has been expunged as the Democrat Party Chairwoman, threatened the owner of the Zoo Health Club with another of her “organized” boycotts because the owner had the audacity to display a Warburton for House District 34 campaign sign in the window of his business located in the mall. Zoo Health Club owner, Bob Horne posted the small 8 inch by 11 paper poster of Warburton because he liked her pro-life stand and her stance on moral issues in the past legislative session. Ms Friede was said to have threatened to cancel her membership and take others with her if the minuscule poster wasn’t removed at once. It has been reported that she has since been going to other mall merchants trying to get them to join her in demanding that the offending sign be removed. We also understand that a similar poster is displayed in the New Wine Christian Bookstore but has yet to be seen by any of the Democrat hierarchy.
I guess we were mistaken when we dared think that the term “free election” meant that a voter could support whomever they desired but this reminds me of the stories of the Democrat organized KKK rallies to discourage blacks from voting for Republicans during the reconstruction period after the civil war or in fact from even voting at all. Is this what we have become in good old backwoods Havre Montana?
On the bright side it would seem that any of the Republican candidates this year wouldn’t have to work to hard at getting elected if this is the type of election tactics the Democrat party leaders are advocating.
I would guess that anyone wanting to show support for Mr. Horne and the Zoo Health Club by starting a membership in his club would be offered some sort of “boycott special” rate while this boycott is in effect. Tell them you saw it in the Corrector!
