Will Chicago Media Cover Arson at Chicago Tea Party Patriot’s Christmas Party?

I’ll be looking at Friday’s Chicago newspapers to see if the political arson at the Chicago Tea Party Patriots at Dugan’s Irish Pub in Chicago last Friday night.

Thursday, the Chicago Bomb and Arson Department informed the Tea Party organization that

“four devices, which appeared to be roadside flares, were taped together and left lit and smoldering in the trash can of the men’s bathroom. On the lid of the toliet seat, written in red, it read:  F#CK THE CHICAGO TEA PARTY  “

The press release below from the group follows:

ARSON AT CHRISTMAS PARTY

*Come to the “We Will Not Be Silenced Do-Over Christmas & New Year Party”


We were the target of an arson Friday at our Christmas Party.

At approximately 8 p.m. smoke began to fill the rooms of Dugan’s Irish Pub where we hosting our Christmas Party.

The entire bar soon became engulfed with thick, heavy smoke and the bar was evacuated. Within moments the Chicago Fire and Police arrived and began to clear and secure the premises.

We were detained outside while firemen cleared the bar. After waiting an hour outside, with other dozens of other bar patrons, we were allowed back in to gather our belongings. The bar was covered in soot and patrons had great difficulty in breathing. Bar management had to close the bar for the night, thus losing revenue during the busy Christmas season.

Tuesday I received a phone call from detectives from the Chicago Bomb and Arson Department who informed me that four devices, which appeared to be roadside flares, were taped together and left lit and smoldering in the trash can of the men’s bathroom. On the lid of the toilet seat, written in red, it read:  F#CK THE CHICAGO TEA PARTY

Bomb and arson police have deemed this an arson and are now investigating.

To those who came to Friday’s party — THANK YOU!  To those who we missed because you came after the bar closed — THANK YOU AND I’M SORRY WE MISSED YOU!!  To those who were unable to make the party, here’s your 2nd chance!!

Because the devices were left in the bathroom it will be difficult to deduce who is the offender from videos and because nobody was killed or harmed (thankfully), fingerprints will not be processed for anywhere from six months to a year.  However, if an offender is found, they will be charged with a felony.


Incidentally, a “We Will Not Be Silenced Do-Over Christmas & New Year Party” will be held Friday, January 7th, at Dugan’s Irish Bar, 128 South Halsted Street in Chicago, 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Will Chicago Media Cover Arson at Chicago Tea Party Patriot’s Christmas Party? — 4 Comments

  1. I wouldn’t expect the Chicago lame-stream media to cover this because they are far left (editorially) and, I have no doubt, they tacitly approved. I wouldn’t be surprised if this story caused a round of “high-fives” among the reporters and editors.

    The fact is, that since 2000, the vast majority of politically oriented violence is committed by the left, against the right. From slashed tires in Milwaukee, to gun shots at, and break-ins and mob take-overs of, Republican offices around the country, to physical assaults of Republican officials (such as Governor Bobby Jindal’s press spokesperson in New Orleans), America’s left is violent and mean. And they are getting more violent.

    Ten years of violent, reckless language – including language used by our President (“hostage takers”, “enemies”, etc.) against Republicans and public, biting, mad-dog hatred of “the rich” has led to this.

    In Massachusetts, homes are being burned and messages of “$%^& the rich” are left behind. The fact that this is happening in a left-leaning, highly partisan, Democratic run city like Chicago, is not surprising.

    We on the right, didn’t start this. We didn’t spend 10 years hating George W. Bush. Nobody is openly writing plays or doing art work celebrating an assassination of Barack Obama, as the left did when Bush was president.

    This is a phenomena of the left, not the right.

    This week’s Florida school board shooter’s facebook page was filled with “hate the rich” screed. Death threats were made against Bristol Palin’ s life because she was on Dancing with the Stars. One liberal in Wisconsin was so deranged at the idea that Sarah Palin’s daughter was on DWTS, that he shot up his TV set.

    In 2008, the left assaulted Republican convention-goers attending their national convention, by dropping 50 lb bags of sand/cement on their buses as they went under underpasses. No such assaults were made at the Democrat convention, by the way.

    Liberals condone physical attacks against the right. That is why the Chicago news papers have/will spike this story. And until the opinion makers on the left tell their drones to stop the violence, and to stop the virulent language against their political opponents, and embrace civility in politics, this will go on until someone is murdered.

  2. There is no evidence of a police report. There is no evidence of a fire department report. Dugan’s claims nothing happened. Who’s lying here?

    Maybe now they will print a story.

  3. Come on j says…. one merely needs to scan the internet and see the numerous accounts of violence committed by right wing extremist. Extremist are extremist regardless of what side of the aisle they come from and we could go this for that all day long. All are forms a domestic terrorism and should never be tolerated. Agree?
