The Free Speech Zone

run the fuck away
The American Conservative ran an article that I actually approved of. Hell, even the Pat Buchanan quote at the top is something I approve of.
The conservative movement has been hijacked and turned into a globalist, interventionist, open borders ideology, which is not the conservative movement I grew up with."
This isn't to say that Patty shouldn't eat shit and die, but that quote at least holds some truth.

Now, onto the "Free-Speech Zone". Most of us have probably heard of the president's blocking of protestors. When he visits places, they have to be shoved away, out of sight, and out of mind. Oh, thier allowed to protest. This is America, they have every right to protest. They just have to be contained is all. Limited area, can't have any more February 15th fiascos. Good, safe distance from the president, there are terrorists out there ya know.

And so in the twenty-first century, the biggest sweeping change in American government is that Free-Speech is something that can be contained in a "zone". That there are restrictions on our right to free speech, above and beyond libel, slander, and reckless behavior.

Mind you, the security excuse is a crock. People carrying pro-bush placards aren't quarantined. What? None of those "rag-head sand nigger terrorists" are going to carry a Bush sign? Upstanding white people won't attack the president? That must be it. Good to know that the president is safe then.

Let me point this out:
Amendment I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
, and use it to show that we the people of the US, have no leg to stand on when it comes to protest zones; not the way these bastards play.

What you say? It says that you can't abridge free speech or the right to assemble. And it does, but it specifically says that Congress can make no law to that end. No law is being used to give the SS the right to move protestors. They're doing it by force of power. Then again, nothing in the Constitution explicitly gives them that right either. And so, we can take refuge in these:
Amendment IX
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
