BIG SUPRISE HERE!

Zuccotti Park owners denied request for group to use park as protest against Ground Zero Mosque last year.

Obama’s occupiers can squat and publicly defecate in Zuccotti Park for two months, but NOT a protest against the Ground Zero Mosque?

According to the Wall Street Journal, The owner of Zuccotti Park which is Brookfield Properties denied a request by a group to use the park to protest against the planned new mosque near the World Trade Center last year.

The owner, Brookfield Properties, expressly prohibits tents, tarps and sleeping in the park—rules ignored by the protesters. It also has a history of denying use of the park for political activities, which is within its rights.

Last year the city and Brookfield Properties denied a request by a group to use the park to protest against the planned new mosque near the World Trade Center. A content-neutral approach, the cornerstone of First Amendment jurisprudence, should also have kept Occupy Wall Street out.

Brookfield Properties claims it does not condone "political activities" on their properties…

Again, I guess they just overlooked Obama’s occupiers. No words though in their rules about people pooping in their parks.
