Wisconsin Town Bans Anti-Obama Protest

A Wisconsin town has banned the display of signs on a pedestrian overpass calling for President Obama’s impeachment, saying the signs could distract motorists, but Tea Party activists say the ban is an infringement on free speech.

The protests, which occurred above an interstate highway in the town of Campbell, Wisconsin, are part of the nationwide “Overpasses for Impeachment” movement that has staged hundreds of rallies across the nation since June. The town’s action suggests a possible route for Democrats to combat the movement. Calls for Obama’s impeachment, even among elected representatives, have grown since the summer.

The Campbell town board has made two ordinance changes that “basically bar anyone from displaying ‘signs, flags, banners, pennants, streamers, balloons or any other similar item’ within 100 feet of the bridge,” according to the La Crosse Tribune.

“The issue of them distracting people … in my opinion, constituted a safety risk,” said Town of Campbell Chairman Scott Johnson.

According to the Tribune:

French Island resident Tony Curtis, who calls himself an independent who will join “a cause I believe in,” scoffed at the rationale the bridge gathering put anyone at risk.

“They’re hiding behind safety as an excuse,” Curtis said . . .

While Campbell officials have said the group can pick another spot in the town, the pedestrian bridge offered the maximum exposure for their anti-government message, Curtis said.

The local Tea Party group has threatened to sue the town. An attempt to bypass the regulation by having protesters each where a shirt with a letter spelling out “IMPEACH” was also broken up by a policeman. Have a look.

Even and attempt to display the American flag on the overpass resulted in a $132 citation.

  1. This is how fascism works, people. Soon, we will be encouraged to take to the streets one night and break out the windows of insurance company offices. They’ll call it something fancy like ‘The Night of Broken Glass’.

    Oh wait . . .

  2. The biggest danger to motorists on the interstate is someone standing on an overpass throwing rocks or other objects down on the interstate. But this overpass is completely surrounded by chain link. Putting a banner up there would be no more dangerous that the big yellow Days Inn sign shown in the photo below the overpass.
    Someone should contact the City Council and ask if it’s okay to put a “We Love Obama” banner up on that day.

  3. Well, it’s happened before. We remember the 2008 case in Missouri where federal goons tried to get the anti-Obama signs (pre-election) taken down and the people associated with the signs prosecuted. And, of course, there’s this case from the state of Washington where the federal government tried to have the anti-Obama signs removed by threatening to deny funds for Washington interstate highways.

    Oh, yeah, this Obama character is a piece of work, alright.

  4. The proximity is closer to Minnesota than Illinois.

    Per Wiki: “La Crosse is a Democratic stronghold in local, state and national politics. Both the City of La Crosse and La Crosse County have voted Democratic in every presidential election since 1988.[24] In the 2008 presidential election, Barack Obama won 69% of the City of La Crosse and 61% of La Crosse County.”

  5. Wait, why didn’t the town pass these ordinances when the Demo’s were using the overpasses for the ‘Recall Walker” campaign?? How come the SEIU workers from out of state weren’t arrested/fined??

  6. George –

    I think you will find WI is very diverse in it’s political & voting background. Around the larger cities there are the “Blues” and then the rest of the state shows a large voice of Red and Indies. This is true throughout other states in the Midwest. They border the City of LaCrosse.

    Anyway, there are other parts of the state (Northern) that are allot more fun to visit and live :-). Besides, remember we elected and confirmed via recall Gov Walker ;-) .

    and Former Cheesehead – good stats. beat me too it!

  7. so much for freedom of speech. As long as your bowing to the king all is well but let it be known America is being ripped off and destroyed by its own government and your in trouble. Americans are not allowed freedom of speech anymore.

  8. It’s VERY easy to recall a Town Supervisor. The number of signatures required is small and the elected positions on town boards aren’t highly-paid full time positions. Do it!

  9. I say move the protest in front of these council peoples houses and meeting places. That’ll teach them to step on the constitution.
