John Whitehead, the head of The Rutherford Institute and author of A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, recently warned that things that people say may well be considered too “dangerous” by the current tyrannical supreme Court of the united States.
According to One News Now:
An organization fighting for individual rights says the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear a case involving students’ right to wear American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo is an ominous sign.
On Cinco de Mayo in 2010, three Oak Hill High School students in California were told by school officials they couldn’t wear patriotic T-shirts because Hispanic students might be offended. John Whitehead of The Rutherford Institute says the justices didn’t even give a reason for their refusal to hear the case.
In Whitehead’s opinion, today’s Supreme Court isn’t a civil libertarian court – which he views as indicative of a dangerous trend.
Whitehead, who has practiced law for 40 years said, “As I’m looking at the court decisions across the country in the lower courts and the Supreme Court, pretty soon anything that might offend somebody – and you can put quotes around that word ‘might’ – is going to be taboo. So free speech, as we’ve known it, I think is almost dead if this court continues the way it’s going.”
“They uphold any action by public schools [and] basically any action by the government,” Whitehead added. “So … if you want civil liberties protections. you better get in the courts, you better fight – and the next time some of these judges come up for the Supreme Court, let’s get a judge on there who understands the Constitution.”
Whitehead has filed a lawsuit on behalf of student against the school district and their parents (Dariano v. Morgan Hill).
John Whitehead was also involved in another famous First Amendment case regarding US Marine Brandon Raub. Raub’s civil rights were violated after he posted statements venting his frustration with the federal government on his Facebook page. Following being kidnapped and taken for psychiatric evaluation without charges against him, Raub sat down with Whitehead for an interview in which he stated, “I’m scared for my country.”
The fact that free speech is under assault in this country tells us that we have strayed from our founding and Marxists are, in fact, in high levels of government to control what we say and wear. And as a warning, the so-called “hate crimes” laws are nothing more than a means of trying to control how we think.
