Craven Cops Slapped Down – Rare Win for USA Free Speech!


Just now reading of some refreshingly sensible judges in America, a majority on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, who last week overturned a shameful appeasement court’s betrayal of free speech.

The case arose after a swarm of sectarian savages launched a vicious attack against a handful of Christian evangelists at Dearborn, Michigan’s Arab Festival. We have noticed Dearborn’s Dark Age hoodlums before. It Can’t Happen Here? Michigan or West Java? 

The brutes clearly imagined that because they were at an Arab Festival, they could use the violence perpetrated against religious dissent in many Arab lands.

Shockingly the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office endorsed the jihadist thugs’ intolerance. Kinda makes it harder for me when I criticise cops in Indonesia for not quelling IslamoNazi intimidation.

Michiganistan! 

 The so-called ‘law-enforcement’ apparatchiks in Dearborn should of course have used all necessary force to subdue the scum and defend Americans’ free speech.

Instead they grovelled cravenly and threatened to arrest the innocent Christians if they didn’t knuckle under and give up their right to assert their beliefs.

But the American Freedom Law Centre stepped in, to champion the victims of Islamist intolerance..Sixth Circuit: County Officials Violated Constitutional Rights of Christians by Siding with a Violent Muslim Mob | American Freedom Law Center

Those gutless County Keystone Cops have now been well and truly slapped down. Here’s part of the ruling.

Maintenance of the peace should not be achieved at the expense of the free speech.  The freedom to espouse sincerely held religious, political, or philosophical beliefs, especially in the face of hostile opposition, is too important to our democratic institution for it to be abridged simply due to the hostility of reactionary listeners who may be offended by a speaker’s message.  

civilised man v savage a good motto, clearly abhorrent to Wayne County

If the mere possibility of violence were allowed to dictate whether our views, when spoken aloud, are safeguarded by the Constitution, surely the myriad views that animate our discourse would be reduced to the standardization of ideas by the dominant political or community groups.  

Democracy cannot survive such a deplorable result.The Sixth Circuit ruled that the County and the two Deputy Chief defendants were liable for violating the Christians’ First Amendment rights to free speech and the free exercise of religion and for depriving the Christians of the equal protection of the law.
