Texas Cops Violate Woman’s First Amendment Rights Over Anti-Kavanaugh Yard Sign (IMAGE)
Police in Texas may be up for a lawsuit. Marion Stanford of Hamilton, Texas, had put a sign up protesting Brett Kavanaugh’s ascent to the highest court in the land after sexual assault allegations were leveled against him. She did it in a most interesting way: With a yard sign that had the GOP elephant with its trunk up a young girl’s dress. The cops called it, “pornography” and demanded she remove it. Here is a shot of the homemade sign. You can decide if you think this is “pornography” or not”:
Now, anyone who has watched pornography knows that this is a political message, not an obscene one. The message is clear: Sexual assault is A-OKAY with Republicans. That should come as no surprise; after all, they elected Donald Trump as president. This is a thrice-married serial adulterer who is also credibly accused of sexual assault by multiple women. They don’t give a damn about women.
According to Marion Stanford, she was threatened with arrest over the sign by the Hamilton, Texas police. She had three choices: remove the sign herself, let the cops have it, or get arrested. Of course, the cops say they did not threaten her with arrest. But, you know how that goes. Even the City Manager, Peter Kampfer, tried to justify this egregious violation of Ms. Stanford’s First Amendment rights:
“It’s a political sign, and a citizen here placed a yard sign that featured a political animal taking an inappropriate position with a young child.”
Yeah, just like the GOP supports the taking advantage of women and girls by privileged, aggressive, predatory men – just since they are fellow Republicans. We all know what this was. This isn’t pornography. It’s political messaging that these brutish, misogynistic goons don’t like. The truth hurts, doesn’t it?
If you don’t think your rights are under assault by right-wing tyranny, you aren’t paying attention. The GOP doesn’t care about justice, or democracy. Only power. Want to preserve the republic? VOTE BLUE.
