The Moonbat Contingent Speaks Up

Harsh title? Well, those folks who took to the streets this weekend to protest the second anniversary of the Iraq war are certainly entitled -- after all it's their First Amendment free speech right. Right? Up to a point, absolutely.
However, over the past few years we've been frankly amazed at how many people have utterly no idea -- other than a weak, diluted, populist "it's a free country" understanding of what the First Amendment speech clause protects, what it means, and what "rights" it provides against governmental action. More commonly you'll find people saying "I have a right to say such & such", or "XYZ is being punishing for speaking out", or crying "censorship!" when the underlying issue has no bearing on areas the first amendment covers.

As a result, we hope to do a very preliminary "first amendment" primer compilation here soon, in an effort to educate those New Yorkers who the public school system has failed.
