These are Americans exercising their right to free speech, according to progressives and the media:
The Ferguson and the St. Louis County police departments, the MO Highway Patrol, the MO governor, virtually all the authorities in MO, as well as Barack Obama and Eric Holder, went out of their way to call these mobs “peaceful protesters” and to school law enforcement officers to take care not to infringe upon the First Amendment rights of these “protesters.”
These are more Americans exercising their right to free speech, according to progressives and the media:
The “Black Brunch Movement” consists of groups of black activists, joined in some cases by progressive activists of any color, descending upon restaurants that are frequented mostly by white people on Sunday mornings, when the whites are trying to enjoy a peaceful brunch after Sunday services. Note that these people are being targeted solely because of their race and possibly their religious practices. The goal of these “peaceful protesters” is to make the whites “uncomfortable.” To do so, the activists, as a mob, invade (trespass in) the restaurants, stand around and over the white patrons, sometimes sitting at their tables, in order to yell at, intimidate, disrupt, and harass white people as they try to enjoy brunch. Imagine if white activists for any cause–it doesn’t matter–deliberately targeted black patrons at restaurants–say at Sweetie Pies, for example–with the sole admitted purpose being to make black folks “uncomfortable.” Free speech?
Here’s a photo of the front of a t-shirt worn by a white American college student who recently tried to exercise his right to free speech:
The young man wanted to board an airplane wearing, under a jacket, a shirt that reads: “Broad f**king city” (whatever that means). He was instructed by a (black) airplane employee that he must wear his jacket at all times or else turn his shirt inside out. He refused, so he was not allowed to board the plane in, of all places where free speech supposedly should be valued, St. Louis, MO.
So this young white man apparently has no right to free speech or expression. His shirt was “offensive,” the powers that be said. But looting, arson, shouting epithets at the police, throwing rocks and bottles at the police, accosting peaceful diners while they’re trying to enjoy their food–all that is NOT offensive and is merely an exercise in “free speech,” if done by blacks! What’s the diff?
