Sioux County, Iowa — The location of what is called a “Pizza & Policy”event in Sioux County this Thursday evening has had to be moved, apparently at the request of the original venue.
A press release from the “Sioux County Conservatives” say the event, which features speaker Dr. Steve Kirby, has been moved from its original location of the Pizza Ranch, to the Sioux Center Library.
The press release accuses a group of what it calls, “far-left activists”, of putting together a campaign of people from out of the area to call and complain to the Pizza Ranch Corporation.
The release claims Pizza Ranch hadn’t verified claims that the activists reportedly made about the event’s speaker, but says Pizza Ranch didn’t want the negative attention that comes with hosting such an event.
The press release says the Sioux County Conservatives do not believe efforts to suppress free speech should succeed. As a result, the Pizza & Policy event will be held at 7:00 pm this Thursday, October 26th at the Sioux Center Library. They say pizza will be provided.

***Pizza & Policy moved to Sioux Center Library Oct. 26***
The location for Thursday’s Pizza & Policy event with Dr. Steve Kirby has been moved to the Sioux Center Library. An organized group of far-left activists put together a campaign of people from out of the area to call and complain to the Pizza Ranch Corporation.
The event will begin at 7 p.m. Pizza will be provided.
These Leftists made claims about the speaker, Dr. Kirby, to Pizza Ranch. Pizza Ranch said it has not verified those claims, but it didn’t want the negative attention that comes with hosting an event like this and did not have time to research it.
The Leftist tactics are a move straight out of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.” Clearly Sioux County Socialists, Indivisible Iowa and the individuals responsible were waiting until just before the event in hopes we would have to cancel.
We do not believe efforts to suppress free speech should succeed. Events happen in our area we disagree with, but we do not demand those events not be allowed to happen or threaten violence should they happen.
Clearly the unhinged Left does not want you to hear from Dr. Kirby. They are trying to stop Dr. Kirby from speaking about Islam just a week after celebrating their OC Pride weekend.
It is an interesting combination considering the punishment for homosexuals in some Islamic countries.
Dr. Kirby has a Ph.D in Foreign Affairs from Virginia. He’s an author, researcher and presenter. He will speak about Islam.
