Baker Creek seed has caved into leftists terroristic threats, encouraging the repeat of such criminal tactics by the mentally unstable left. I think I am going to be buying all of my seeds from now on from Morgan County Seed.
Instead of cancelling the cowards at Baker Creeks should have just made an announcement of their concerns and suggested that people come armed. I would have been armed regardless….. I hope that you are one of those that is armed wherever you go. That is how the bad guys are stopped.

“People know that this organization basically has uninvited my father to speak because of political reasons,” he told the News-Leader. “You know, that will be known and seen. And I don’t blame them. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t blame them, and my father certainly wants to make it easy and peaceful for them to have their event and succeed in whatever it is that they want to do.”
He added, “The facts and the truth will show clearly what really happened, and that is they invited my father for his knowledge and experience in being able to grow rare seeds in a desert climate using very little water and (he) wanted to share that knowledge, and for political reasons they uninvited him.”

“That was actually our concern, yes,” she told the News-Leader midday Monday. “At first we thought (opposition to the announced Bundy visit) was just people talking on Facebook and so forth. But when it appeared to be an organized plan and threatening our vendors, we thought we have a responsibility to our festival-goers.”…. Read More
