If You Limit ANY Free Speech, This is What You Get

Via The Daily Bell

The law originally targetted the KKK. Now it has been used to arrest people protesting against white supremacists.

And that is why free speech is so important.

Plenty of people would love to see new laws to stop white supremacists from exercising their–albeit offensive–free speech.

But as this 1951 law demonstrates, the law as it is intended is not always how it is applied.

Faced with hundreds of demonstrators rallying against a crowd of neo-Nazis in Newnan, local and state authorities turned to a little-known Georgia law adopted in 1951 to combat the Ku Klux Klan.

The law, which makes it illegal to wear a mask at most public events, was cited in several of the arrests of counterdemonstrators who joined a protest Saturday against white supremacists.

And the irony was not lost upon the organizers of the counterdemonstration, who were fuming Sunday that a law aimed at weakening white supremacists was used to arrest protesters who opposed a neo-Nazi rally.

There are so many problems with this law. Why are masks not protected forms of expression? What about hats, hoods, and sunglasses? At what point do those fit the definition of a mask?

Ironically, police routinely wear gas masks and face-covering riot helmets at these kinds of events. Apparently, the law doesn’t apply to them. But that is fitting since most laws don’t apply to the people who enforce them.

Have you ever threatened to shoot someone with a rifle because they had a mask on? Me neither. Police are a different breed.

A video posted on social media by freelance journalist Daniel Shular appeared to show authorities scuffling with counterdemonstrators. Authorities demanded that the counterprotesters remove their masks, and the footage showed an officer raising his rifle at demonstrators.

This is another good reminder that police will enforce any law handed down on high from politicians–even dead politicians who passed the law in 1951. The only actual violence at the rally was committed by police, in the name of the law.

But free speech, the very first amendment in the blueprint for this country’s government, is not so important to law enforcement. Police have no problem throwing people to the ground, handcuffing them, using pepper spray, billy clubs, and aiming deadly weapons at peaceful protesters because they wear a piece of cloth obscuring their faces.

And any other anti-free speech laws will be enforced with equal vigor.

Hate speech. Offensive displays. Fake news. Laws aimed at combatting these will absolutely limit free speech. Maybe, maybe, at first they will only be used against the neo-Nazis and the white supremacists, just like this anti-mask law was at first only used against the KKK.

But it is only a matter of time until innocent people find themselves in the crosshairs of these freedom crushing laws.

State law bans the wearing of masks, hoods or other devices that conceal a person’s identity if they’re on public property or on private property where the owner has not consented. It includes exceptions for holidays, theatrical productions, civil emergencies and sporting events.

The laws have been adopted by about a dozen states, most aimed at weakening the KKK in the middle of the 20th century. The Georgia Supreme Court in 1990 upheld the state’s ban after a Klansman donned a hood on the Lawrenceville Square, citing his First Amendment rights.

The law has mostly been used to target KKK demonstrations, though it has also been employed before to arrest demonstrators who are objecting to white power groups. At a 2016 rally, the law was used to arrest eight demonstrators protesting a white supremacist rally at Stone Mountain Park.

This is just one of many laws in the arsenal of the police state. There are enough laws that you can be arrested for basically anything. It gives an official appearance to entirely arbitrary policing. You can be arrested on any officer’s whim, and then he will be able to find an excuse.

Other counter-protesters were arrested for “resisting arrest,” a classic joke of a charge. How can you be charged with only resisting arrest? It means there was no reason for them to be arresting you, and only once they illegally tried to arrest you did you commit a crime.

If common law reigned supreme, where attacking someone is always wrong, these police would not have the protection of the state to shield their violent actions.

A blot of ink on a 70-year-old piece of paper would not protect these cops from charges that they threw people to the ground without provocation, that they chained and kidnapped people, that they aimed loaded guns at people who had done nothing aggressive or threatening.

Make no mistake, ANY anti-free speech law will be used against innocent, non-violent, peaceful people. And the American police state will enforce those laws on its victims with glee.

Exactly Blue Steel, and it's exactly why Sir Oswald Mosley had to have his BlackShirts.

The only reason for both was because the rabid jew supremacist reds (communist/bolsheviks) were not allowing free speech of the native peoples and would catch, ambush & kill their victims in alleys, side streets etc. They used razor blades, clubs of all types, guns- they were the antifa or red mobs and made up of mostly all jews.

AB, read the content of the article, related? well yeah, duh. 

It drives you jew supremacists insane to be exposed for what you really are.

Your statement is a monstrous lie, as usual for a jew supremacist.

Out of a list of thirty consecutive threads I have maybe posted different items to 5-6 threads, maybe. But truth means nothing to rabid jew supremacist liars.

Antifa is protesting white supremacists?

They are thugs, painting good Americans with a scarlet letter, repeating it over and over, to make it "true".

There are probably thirty laws they could arrest them for, but no, they're going to use the stupidest law possible.

It's like a guy walks in to steal cigarettes, kills the cashier, then gets arrested for theft.....  assholes!

 

Racketeering, often associated with organized crime, is the act of offering of a dishonest service (a "racket") to solve a problem that wouldn't otherwise exist without the enterprise offering the service

Isn't this exactly what the US government spends most of it's time doing?  There are 35 crimes listed in the Rico act, and the Government is committing most all of them.

Monotheism is Not our native religion.

The Semites have allowed their God to murder his wife, Ashera and He has thus become an Abomination.

Well that works when you trust the government to be benign. Do you expect to go to an anti-IRS rally and not run a higher risk of an audit?  How about a protest against abusive police tactics?  Are you certain that your name won't pop up for special treatment? Want to carry a sign saying you will shoot any cop coming to confiscate your weapons?  Don't think the state will put a flag on you?

The important thing to remember is that when the inflation that the U.S. has been exporting for decades via the petrodollar-supported trade deficit and government deficit comes back home, these police and the military will be the only people in the U.S. who will be paid.

Don't worry AB, your jew supremacists buddies will suddenly bring on their (devastating to the masses) deflation magic so they can once again buy at pennies on the dollar, thus using their ill gotten usury gains to rip the fleeced masses once again. Then they will start their reflating robbery machine up again, rinse & repeat until the jew supremacists control all. Hope your proud of your buddies.

And when in their self created deflationary environment one of their darling gangster banks or derivative monstrosities defaults they will gladly put on the jewey diamon whine to Congress for their tax free bailout, of course put on the backs of the tax paying masses- and you & your jew supremacist buddies will once again sit back and say "we had a good day"

It's all cowards wearing masks nowadays.  The cops should have their faces visible. They have transparent riot shields they can wear.  No more anonymous pig thuggery, no more masked protestors.

If you're doing what's right, you can show your face.

Funny how its only illegal to extol the supremacy of whites and pro white philosophies but not other ethnicities, tribes, philosophies etc. in countries founded and made great by whites, in languages invented buy whites, using media engineered and developed by whites over infrastructure whites built.

I wonder (((who))) is behind this?

The police do not care what the laws says.

It is irrelevant to their jobs.

I am not being sarcastic, courts all over have found that police officers are not required to be lawyers.

In fact, back before the invention of the police officer, we had peace officers. Sheriffs often still are peace officers. Their job is to maintain the peace and to serve court warrants.

The whole go out and find the crime is a relatively modern invention.

Bullshit.

Provocative protesters hide behind masks to hide their identity to prevent prosecution. The did it in Phoenix. The did it in Portland. They did it at Berkley. They tried to do it in Newnan but the law against masks prevented any serious violence.

Some jackass in a mask was seen taking photos of our town buildings and the people inside. People in the offices felt threatened and intimidated. Several people now have masks of their own handy and will break the legs of the next "mask wearing protester" and leave him behind the building. We'll see how far mask wearing goes after that.

It either works both ways or it doesn't work at all.

Greetings,

I've been an antifa anarchist most of my adult life and I am disgusted with these current Soros sponsored pretenders.  First, if we ever decided to go violent then we would first attack the Left as we hate nothing more than Socialism.  You know, that whole National Socialist German Workers Party thing.  

People that believe in voluntary association despise Socialism and the Left.  Seriously, how many anarcho-capitalists were there at this rally?  I'm guessing zero.

Congratulations for exposing the hoax. Antifa is from anti-fascist. Fascism, like National Socialism, are movements of the "left" not the "right". These phony antifa useful idiots pose as being on the "left". If they are "left" of Fascism and National Socialism, they are Communists. I use quotation marks, because left and right are outdated terms. The correct terms are globalist/internationalist and nationalist.

Clearly, you are a Capitalist. I suspect that you do not see that Capitalism and Communism are the two sides of the same coin. Both are international in scope and both seek to concentrate wealth in the hands of the few who are allowed into the club. In Capitalism's case, it is the private central bankster's club. In Communism's case, it is those allowed to be part of the Commune, which is the club for those who control the system.

Real Nationalism is a form of tribalism and by extension, Socialism. While individuals are important, everything is done for the benefit of the nation/tribe, before considering outsiders. Greek city states operated in this manner.

The premise of the article is a typical false narrative of the internationalist crowd. Antifa never has permits for their demonstrations. Therefore, they are in breach of local ordinances, technically a crime. There are laws prohibiting the use of a disguise in the commission of a crime. The use of the pejorative "White supremacist" is a must. Supremacists believe they are not only superior in all respects to others, but must have total control over them. I have yet to meet any White Supremacist.

The anti-mask law in GA makes wearing a mask a misdemeanor violation. Virginia has a similar law, but here it is a felony with a 5 year prison term. I'd like to see some Antifa clowns get busted in VA for wearing a mask, but I know they won't wear a mask where they could get 5 years for doing so.
