Thanks to 9th Circuit, Free Speech Denied to Americans

Screen Shot 2014-02-28 at 9.18.37 AMThe San Francisco liberals are celebrating a victory in striking down one of the provisions found in the First Amendment…Freedom of Speech. According to the 9th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals, schools have the power to ignore student’s right to free speech if they deem it a matter of safety.

The case stems from a situation which arose on Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican celebration. American-loving students elected to show their pride in America by wearing American Flag shirts to school on the 5th of May. School officials forced the students to turn the shirts inside out because they feared it could provoke racial violence.

So, just to be clear…your Freedom of Speech can be taken away if someone who is intolerant of your views threatens to harm you. I certainly hope this case makes its way to the Supreme Court and that these liberal loony toon judges in the great state of California are slapped down once again. Perhaps instead of striping American students of the free speech because they fear Mexican students will become violent…the school should instead ban the celebration of Cinco de Mayo because it represents a threat to good order and conduct?

I do believe this particular court has had more of its decisions overturned than any other Court of Appeals. Although, I understand the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals had the title for a short time. At some point, these judges need to be sanctioned for failing to properly interpret the US Constitution. It has come to be expected from California but that does not mean the rest of the nation should begin accepting it…expecting and accepting are vastly different.
