News Lynwood Convention Center: “Watchmen is a Pro-Israel Group!”
posted by October 11 at 14:50 PMon
After reading David Schmader’s post, I sent an email to the Lynwood Convention Center with the subject “Would you invite the KKK to the Lynwood Convention Center?”
I just received this email from the general manager.
Dear Steven: Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts regarding the upcoming Watchman on the Walls conference coming to the Lynnwood Convention Center. While we appreciate your concerns regarding outside activities relating to this group, we are not in a position to deny their right to assemble in a public facility.
The Watchmen on the Walls have met recently in several locations in the Greater Puget Sound to include the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue and the Seattle Sheraton. In both instances, they drew no public attention in the form of protests or violence. In fact, you are the first person to inquire about this group.
Thank you again for sharing your thoughts and concerns. Please do not hesitate to call me directly if you have additional questions.
Eddie T.L. Tadlock

Which “Watchmen” group did you invite, Eddie? Are you sure you picked the right one? Absolutely positive?
One is a pro-hate anti-gay extremist group, the other is a Christian pro-Israel group.
I really hope you picked the one with the Klesmer music, Eddie. Otherwise, I’m going to have to protest.
Eddie acknowledged via email that he invited a “pro-hate group.” But also said the Lynwood Convention Center “does not condone activities of any organization that promotes hate.”
You really can’t have it both ways, Eddie.
