Share Article

The Group "Angrytownhall" is holding live protests at libraries nationwide, and in downtown Los Angeles on 9/24/09. The "Flamer" movement" aims to protest socialized social services in America, beginning with fire stations. The group has added over 14,000 members in just one month on its Facebook group and is a rapidly growing political movement.

We've decided to bring awareness to the rampant socialism in America, starting with our nation's fire departments.

On Thursday, September 24, citizens from Los Angeles will join concerned citizens across the United States in opposition to ongoing taxes imposed by America's socialized fire services, and gather to promote individual liberty, privatization, and free market principles.

"So many people are engaged in everyday socialism without even knowing it. Our police, our Medicare, roads" said Angrytownhall President Troy Conrad. "We've decided to bring awareness to the rampant socialism in America, starting with our nation's fire departments." With over 14,000 members on its Facebook page, "1 Million Strong Against our Socialist Fire Departments," the "Flamer" movement is a 'grassroots organization' intent on keeping taxes low for the American people by privatizing of 100% of America's fire departments by 2011, then moving to other social services.

"We have too many people who are tired of paying for their neighbor's fire, when they've had no fire. We want our America back," observed Conrad. The protest is expected to draw thousands in Los Angeles, and tens of thousands nationwide. Los Angeles-based 'anti-socialism' protesters will rally in front of the Central Library in downtown Los Angeles at 3 p.m. Local residents are encouraged to attend to show their 'opposition' to socialized fire services. For instance:

  • A pilot light is a pre-existing condition. Why should neighbors be forced to pay for carelessness?
  • The USA hosts the best fire departments in the world, but that doesn't mean that just anyone (i.e. non-U.S. citizens) should be able to dial up and have fires put out, without first giving a valid credit card.
  • There may be a secret order to let houses more than 65 years old burn if on fire.
