for the thread posters: who else here believes this is a huge first amendment issue?Well people here aren't down with Satanism and most cult stuff. So why would I think this is a first amendment safe haven? Ok I wouldn't call it the opposite of a free speech safe haven. But don't try to tell me people here are making free speech a top priority.
why would people be so up in arms, you ask? the confederate aspect to this is a VERY minor detail, as are how people perceive statues and memorials. not sure why you think thats a significant point. but this is where free speech starts unraveling-- when some people find things "offensive" and require them to be banned because they dont agree with it. this leads to hate speech laws, hate crimes, and then everything is hate speech and a hate crime.
all harmless speech is 100% protected. that is what is being tested right now.
