This guy has more balls than 99.9% of the “tough guys” I know.
The Dallas Morning News:
The last time we spoke with Chris Polone, owner of Fort Worth music venue The Rail Club Live, he was preparing for a July 4 Tea Party Protest concert in defiance of Gov. Greg Abbott’s order to shut down Texas bars as a measure to curb the spread of coronavirus. That event got his liquor license suspended, and the shutdown order is still in place.
Polone, however, is now organizing Freedom Fest in alliance with other bars and venues across the state that will open their doors illegally for concerts on Saturday, July 25.
They claim it’s illegal even though his event is billed as a political protest and alcohol is not being sold. In other words, the corporate press is simply lying.
When Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission officers gave him the option of shutting the event down or losing his liquor license on July 4, Polone — who was broadcasting on Facebook Live — got on stage, ranted, and tore up the paperwork. Then he went outside, lit up a cigarette, and said his lawyers were ready to sue the state of Texas.
This man is a legend. Total Americana.
Basically, this man was staging a protest against Greg Abbott making up laws based on a secret forumla for virus erratication, the specifics of which plan he refuses to reveal. Now he’s going after Abbott in a pincer attack using both lawfare and guerrilla dance parties.
Hilariously, Chris is also quoted in the story making fun of Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price saying “She eats like a coyote, apparently” after failing to confront her in a restaurant because she left so quickly.
Polone then makes the argument that is in the back of everybody’s mind, but because of social pressure backed by “experts,” nobody feels it’s worth to argue about: Why are some businesses allowed to remain open and others must close? You’re never going to be able to convince a conscious human being that there is a deadly pandemic while both Wal Mart and America’s borders remain open.
Now is the time for patriots to unite. We have a chance now in the Texas Republican Party to expand our reach and capture both working class people and people who oppose this global virus regime.
So Chris, if you’re out there king, we’re with you.
We invite you to join us.
