The following passage is reportedly being posted in the “Overpasses for America” FaceBook groups. It evidently threatens dissident state leads and others with a lawsuit. The state leads resigned recently over mishandling of donations by Neighbors. You can read the posts on this blog concerning the affair at this link:
The people that fed you the line of lies, smears, and openly acted to defame my character are going to be in for a rude surprise. Once I have the information necessary, I will be filing a lawsuit against them for damages they have done to Overpasses. So you can stay with the group who started this whole national phenomena, Overpasses, or you can believe the people who set themselves to destroy this movement. Patriots never surrender, never retreat, and treat people like that with disdain, disgust and contempt. Traitor is a word far too kind for those that have sought to destroy this movement. They have FAILED, and Overpasses will carry on without such treacherous people lurking in our midst.
(attributed to James Neighbors, Overpasses for America lead)
HISTORICAL SIDENOTE: James Neighbors did not actually start the movement single-handedly. There were two groups in Southern California, who had been doing such impeach Obama Overpass rallies since Inauguration Day, January 2013, several months before Neighbors appeared on the scene. These groups were “Stop Obama Now – San Diego” and “We the People, California’s Crusader” (Orange County). Neighbors copied our techniques and used the publicity generated by one of the demos in Carlsbad on June 8, 2013 to take the protests national. The demo had generated considerable controversy due to the adverse report of a local news website that the protest had caused a ten-mile “traffic snarl.”
Neighbors helped promote the movement, but he is not actually the originator of it and does not have exclusive ownership rights to it, as he likes to lead people to believe. Free choice and competition is still good for everyone and is the American Way, not monopoly and total control by one person via threats and intimidation of others. Oppressive control and intimidation is actually what we are fighting against.
Please support all of the groups that are doing impeach-Obama overpass protests, including the new groups and especially your local groups. You can find a current list of impeach-Obama protest groups here:
Joining multiple groups ensures competition and survival of the movement, not the destruction of it.
