Chicago Tea Party: Christmas Party ended in smoke and a bomb threat!

Last week the Chicago Tax Day Tea Party held a Christmas Party at Dugan’s Irish Pub, and there was a bomb threat.

Here’s their Facebook statement.

Last Friday we held our downtown Christmas Party at Dugan’s Irish Pub.

We had a great crowd and the bar was filled with Christmas cheer until smoke began to fill the entire venue.

At approximately 8 p.m. the Chicago Fire Department were called to the bar to put out what was a very smoked filled bar.

After waiting outside for nearly an hour, we were told that the bar was closed for the night and we were asked to gather our belongings.

There were four small dynamite looking devices found in the men’s bathroom, smoldering in the trash can.

The following evening I received a phone call from Chicago Police Department Bomb and Arson officials.

Written on the lid of one of the toilets were: F*CK THE TEA PARTY

Bomb and arson officials have deemed this incident an arson.

Luckily, nobody was hurt, however, the good people of Dugan’s lost an awful lot of money.

Police are investigating and we are not going away.

Look for us to have a ONE-MORE-TIME! MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW PARTY in Chicago’s Loop after the New Year!

To the dozens who came out to Dugan’s, I am so sorry for all this trouble. There are some very hateful people in this world and they will do whatever necessary to stop those who are fighting for freedom!

And we hope those who came out and those who were unable to make Friday’s event, join us after the New Year!!

Thank you for your faith and support! You are the heart and soul of the tea party movement; without you, socializm would rule!

God bless you and your families during this Christmas Season!

  2. WOW this brings back memories of the 2008 Presidential campaign…after getting off the Hillary campaign bus to head into the hotel for the VICTORY party we were chased down the hotel sidestreet by those carrying Obama CHANGE signs and guess what they were chanting F**k Hillary so these lunatics certainly get around and obviously get mad when they aren’t invited to THE PARTY…Thank God no one was hurt

    • Barbara, This is a smapling of what we have to look forward to in 2012. You are spot on- we went through it in 2008 because we were hillary supporters then as McCain/ Palin supporters and we saw them call out the troops in 2012 in Nevada too.
      But by 2012- with any luck the Tea party will have grown and will be ready for them.
      I know I will.
      i HAD NO IDEA WHAT CHICAGO STYLE pOLITICS LOOKED LIKE IN 08- i THOUGHT THAT ENDED WITH THE MAFIA- NOW i KNOW BETTER .
      bUT WE WILL OVERCOME WITH PEACEFUL MEANS.

      Ooops.

      • We women, who are Hillary supporters, had to endure a LOT of degrading comments that were sexually based from the Obama supporters. It was horrible on MySpace groups. Hopefully, the migration of social media outlets will not allow that type of sexual harassment.
