Politics: The Police State
And you don't even have to be a police to enforce it. Of course, AssPress describes this as a story about a woman wearing a tee shirt that "promotes lesbianism." Lots of people we know would really like to find out how to "promote lesbianism." We ourselves believe that some are born lesbian, some achieve lesbianism, but nobody has lesbianism thrust upon them.In the event, Page Q is reporting that some woman goes to a Federal building to pick up a social security card for her son and a petty little tinpot tyrant employee of DHS (that's the Department of Homeland Security to youse) decides that her tee shirt is "inappropriate" and boots her out.
What did her tee shirt say, you might ask? Simply this: lesbian.com.
Now, the Supreme Court has held that tee shirt slogans represent a form of free speech entitled to the protections of the Constitution:
In Tinker v. Des Moines, the Court recognized the right of public school students to wear black armbands in protest of the Vietnam War. [...] Other examples of protected symbolic speech include works of art, T-shirt slogans, political buttons, music lyrics and theatrical performances.You know what that means, you DHS employees and contractors? It means that, even if she wore a tee that said "Dip me in honey and throw me to the lesbians," y'all are shit outa luck trying to boot her off federal property. Like any other citizen, she has the Constitutional right to free speech.
Damn, what's happened to this country, land of the free and home of the brave? Stumble It!
