Harrisonburg is at it again, guys.
The municipality that houses JMU and recently cracked down on fraternities with a bullshit, un-Constitutional order to remove Greek letters from houses has decided to go full Stalin and initiate the most heinous of all the diabolical tools of tyrants: a freaking noise ordinance.
Here’s the text of the hearing notice for the new noise restrictions from the city of Harrisonburg:
The Harrisonburg City Council will hold a public hearing on August 23, 2016 at 7:00 p.m., or as soon as the agenda permits, in the City Council Chambers located at 409 South Main Street, Harrisonburg, Virginia, to solicit public comments concerning the following:
Amending and re-enacting Section 15-3-2(b) of the Noise Ordinance, to add a definition for mass outdoor social gathering; to amend and re-enact Section 15-3-2(c)(7) to apply the Harrisonburg Noise Ordinance at all times to outdoor gathering’s of ten (10) or more people
10. Fucking. People. That’s the size of a barbecue. Harrisonburg is making outdoor barbecues illegal. That’s the most un-American thing I’ve ever heard.
JMU students, you need to stand up to this tyranny. Mob this hearing, bring your flags and tank tops. Bring a grill or two. Be loud enough that they can’t enact their noise complaint ordinance. Let the voice of democracy be projected with sound-amplifying equipment and a squad in excess of 100 attendees.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing..
