It was back in Chicago that I found out that the EWTN Family Celebration in Worcester was going to take place at the very same time as our Stacy McCain event. This was an event I would have to cover but I perceived it would be a good event for Stacy to cover as well as faithful catholic women with large families would be a great contrast to the various feminists that Stacy would see. Additionally I was supposed to meet with the head of the Catholic Marketing Network over another matter and we arranged to meet at the location.

As I had to fulfill my Sunday mass obligation I figured it was a better idea to hit the mass presided over by the Bishop rather since anyone I wanted to interview at the event would be unavailable during mass.

So by 9 AM we were on the road and after an uneventful trip down proceeded to the DCU center.

As we were checking in I quickly found why so many of the people who had shown an interest in going to Stacy McCain’s event had missed it, those who might have missed the pro-life rally in Fitchburg at the same time as ours were all volunteering for EWTN, including a good chunk of the WQPH volunteer pool.  After grabbing a quick shot of the Knights of Columbus 4th degree who were assembling to process at mass headed upstairs where we discovered to my shock that our station while just 25 minutes to the north didn’t have a booth.

On the plus side I found that both Elena Rodriguez and Dorothy Radlicz who I had interviewed in Chicago remembered me fondly and Dorothy particularly had been impressed by the various interviews that I had conducted.  This would turn out to be rather critical for both Stacy and I before the end of the day.

Stacy had no interest in Mass so he stayed upstairs setting up as I, leaving the laptops at our table across from the Religious catalog area, headed downstairs cameras in hand.  Bishop McManus was the primary celebrant and it made for an unusual dynamic.  Unless mass is celebrated at a Bishop’s home Cathedral, or you are at a conference of Catholic Bishops or a high ranking Cardinal or the Pope visiting the local Bishop presiding over a mass is a big deal as it doesn’t happen often, but even rarer that a Bishops visit was seeing in person behind the altar were eight priests from EWTN that the assembled faithful regularly welcome into their homes or on their car radios. Additionally with EWTN present there was a fair amount of praying in Latin with the Gloria in excelsis Deo (glory to God), Angus Dei (Lamb of God), and even the Pater Noster (Our Father) all in Latin.

But the story here that I really wanted Stacy to see wasn’t the mass or even the reaction to the crowd seeing these priests, it was the large families with multiple kids. Having discovered that the family sitting behind me in mass had 10 children and seeing these families I grabbed Stacy, cutting short my meeting with Mr. Napelton, to try and get an interview with them. There was a group of four families outside of mass that between them had 22 children which is more than the all the authors of the feminist books in Stacy’s carry on luggage combined. Unfortunately for me and for him all while they would talk to us (one commented how her large family was not so much a rejection of feminism as an embrace of the graces and blessing granted by God through her family) not a one was willing to go on camera or have their names recorded. This was a huge disappointment but we of course respected their decision.

At this point it was time to start grabbing interviews, As this story is about Stacy’s visit I’ll save most of them for a separate post dedicated to the subject leaving only this one with the National Catholic Register to give you a taste.

So what was Stacy doing while I was dashing around? It turns out not much. It seems there was no internet at the location so he was stranded and with the families unwilling to go on the record or even consent to a picture there was very little for him to report however this is where Dorothy’s interest in my work would pay dividends again. She made it a point to introduce me to Molly Finn host of Close to home on WCCA TV Worcester. I in turn introduced her to Stacy McCain which was to become the most significant event of the day.

So while I was grabbing interviews with Marcus Grodi, Jack Williams and even EWTN CEO Michael Warsaw Stacy remained speaking with Mrs Finn who was completely fascinated with him and his arguments on feminism and by the time we left the DCU center we had an appointment to be at the WCCA studios for Stacy McCain to tape an appearance on her show to discuss his book and feminism.

That scheduled TV appearance took a lot of the sting out of losing several hours of net time so after introducing Stacy to Fr Pacwa (not an easy task as the lines to see him were huge) and making she he had a copy of both Stacy’s book and mine appearance we headed off.

Stacy wanted to visit Clark University and that was our next stop. we strolled along the campus seeing posters pushing socialism

and this plaque of Robbert Goddard that solicited comment from Stacy

It was sometime around this point that I mentioned to Stacy that Clark was only one of 10 colleges in Worcester and we started hitting them, from Worcester State College to Quinsigamond Community College which being a two year community college had nobody around of campus on the weekend to WPI where 7 years prior Stacy and I covered Bill Clinton’s failed attempt to carry Martha Coakley over the finish line against Scott Brown starting the Tea Party movement’s national winning streak.

At each stop except Quinsigamond Stacy went out and explored the campus diving in to see what was going on, grabbing student newspapers when possible and checking out their “diversity” and woman’s studies departments as possible. While I joined in at Clark I dozed off at Worcester State and found the parking so far away from the college proper simply dropped Stacy off and again dozed until he came back.

At this point it was getting late so we headed back to Fitchburg where Stacy repeated this process with my almamater Fitchburg State University (Fitchburg State college when I attended). When his explorations were done we headed home. There was a lot to write, I had a podcast to try to finish (which wouldn’t be done until the next day) and we had to prepare for our final full day which would mean a trip to Worcester for Stacy’s TV appearance and a long drive to UMass Amherst to the west.

Once we confirmed that Stacy’s scheduled TV appearance in Leominster was kaput he informed me that the college republicans that he had been in contact with wanted to have him visit the college for 5:30 or so.Stacy and I headed toward cambridge.

Rather than take the long drive into Harvard Square as my dad used did to take me Million Year Picnic back when I was thirteen in the days when Harvard Square was the western most stop on the Boston Subway  We headed to Alewife station parked on the the 4th floor grabbed our red line tickets and grabbed a seat on the subway heading to Harvard Station and the square and college that it led to.

When we emerged into the daylight and crossed over to the gate, we found ourselves smack in the middle of a protest

There was a circle of several hundred people who surrounded a few folks taking turns with a bullhorn denouncing dropping DACA. We had gotten there early for our meeting but late for the start of the protest so we checked out the signs and the crowd and campus police that looked on with the same half amused resignation as people at the most exclusive school in the world talked about oppression.

We watched for a while, saw the various signs (invariably anti trump) then left for our meeting location (missing the human chain and subsequent arrests).

We found the hall where we were supposed to meet and happily stumbled on a presentation by professor Robert George. of Princeton.

As Stacy went out to find the fellow we were looking for I sat in on his presentation. His talk concerning culture and the humanities was a great pleasure and his observation that in the end those Harvard Students in the room were not just the top 1% but the top .0001% of all time in human history was a fact that seems to be lost when students in higher education find themselves triggered.

At this point Stacy had met our guide President of the Harvard College Republicans Kent Haeffner

As one might guess Kent was an impressive young fellow and while he spoke of some of the oddities of the liberal atmosphere as illustrated by this Woman Studies syllabus as read by Stacy McCain

He vigorously defended Harvard as an institution both in terms of the educational environment but for it’s ability to inspire symbolized by one particular gate with the inscription as you come in “Enter to grow in wisdom” and as you pass out “Depart to serve better your country and your kind.”

after a rather pleasant lunch (mentioned by Stacy here) we returned to the quad for a long interview

The camera failed during the last question so Stacy repeated it

It turned out he had been on campus during the Black Mass business so I also interviewed him on the subject

He was also kind enough to show me the Chinese restaurant where in the end the black mass was held (I was liberal with the Holy water on the building area) and then showed me to St. Paul’s the catholic chapel where the Eucharist Procession and adoration had taken place.

By now his time was getting short so we escorted us back to the Mexican Restaurant where we had lunched so we could wait for the young lady who we would speak to next, a passer by was kind enough to take a shot for us.

A few minutes later we were joined by Emily Hall who was both an officer of the college republicans but a member of the Network of Enlightened Women. Kent left us in her capable hands.

Capable frankly is too weak an adjective for this young lady. She spoke of being a pro-life Catholic woman on campus and how, like Kent she had grown stronger in the crucible of education and pushback while demonstrating very publicly that the woman of Harvard University were not monolithic in their beliefs. She also sat for and interview with Stacy

And myself.

at this point is was getting pretty late so Stacy and I escorted her back toward her dorm talking more about the environment and her plans for the future on the way.

As we headed back to the car and drove home Stacy spoke to his wife concerning his impressions of Harvard and the fine young people we had met it was evident that whatever idiocy might take place on campus either via protest or within the Woman’s Studies department it was clear that he had been provided with ample proof that Harvard was more than capable of allowing a well grounded conservative with the courage of their convictions and a good work ethic to grow into an even stronger conservative ready to in the words of the gate serve better their country and their kind. and by the end of the day it was evident that the Kansas City Chiefs had not been the only folks to change a narrative in Massachusetts that day. These two tweets said it all.

If you told me that it was even slightly possible for Robert Stacy McCain to make that statement aloud one week ago I, like Wombat would not have believed it.

Stacy McCain Revere MA Sept 6th 2017
Revere Ma 12:36 PM

Despite downpours and lightning and the disapproval of the Daily Caller Mirror blog Robert Stacy McCain strode out of the Southwest Airlines arrival terminal just before Noon on Wednesday bags in tow and fedora proudly on his head to begin the first of seven days in Massachusetts.

Stacy being Stacy we immediately headed for the nearest McDonalds Ray Kroc memorial media center so he could unpack his laptop check his email and get a quick post up for the faithful waiting to see what he had in store for them and get a post up for the faithful folk who support shoe leather reporting so they can get the facts as they are vs as they’re spun.

He had already provided a sneak peek this morning of what to expect to those who are devotees of Gonzo journalism:

Packing up the car and driving seems to me the much more relaxing way to travel, because if you get behind schedule you just drive faster, and I enjoy driving fast. Our nation’s law enforcement establishment tends to take a different view of the matter, and the joy of doing 90 mph is tempered by the need to avoid detection. But I digress . . .

Harvard University is all upset about President Trump’s threat to end DACA, because there are about 65 illegal aliens at Harvard — the illegal elite, as it were. Harvard is America’s leading anti-American university. They love foreigners and hate anybody who was actually born here, unless maybe you’re gay or something. Yet it seems Harvard has accidentally admitted a few Republican students, and I got an email from one of them Tuesday night, offering to guide me across campus.

A greater clue to what is in store was in his carry on bag which I had expected to be stuffed with copies of his book but were instead filled with books of a different sort:

Hidden within was A veritable cornucopia of Feminist thought, written by feminist writers and assigned by Feminist professors in woman’s studies programs accross the nation. Books that young college student paying upwards of $60,000 a year for an education were taught from and in some cases required to buy.

This willingness to read what feminist authors actually write and what feminist professors actually teach, and the courage to quote those words in print as they are rather than how professional feminists choose to portray them had a lot to do with his banning from Twitter because if there is one thing that a totalitarian movement can’t abide is the unvarnished truth offered to counter propaganda.

This knowledge of what Feminism actually says in it’s own words is the driving force behind the “Sex Trouble” project and Stacy’s presentation of what he has discovered along these lines will be the topic of his presentation Sept 9th in Leominster Massachusetts at the event Buffet Books and Blather at the Tang Dynasty Restaurant 638 North Main Street Rte 12 Leominster (exit 31 B off of Route 2) which will be the highlight of his Massachusetts Trip.

For those of you who ant to learn about feminism as it is rather than as it’s portrayed and save $5 on the at the door price, Prebuy tickets are still available here It’s a great chance to get a signed copy of Stacy’s book, not to mention enjoying an excellent buffet and our round table discussion of the issues of the week featuring Stacy, the good folks from Granite Grok and the Worcester Tea Party, Dianne Ploss late of the 2016 Trump campaign and now head of of Act for America Boston and my humble self.

It promises to be a good time for all and given Stacy’s proclivity to seek out stories, likely the best chance for the faithful fan of Gonzo Shoe Leather Journalism and Robert Stacy McCain in particular catch him for at least a little while as he makes the rounds.

I’ll tell you one thing, it’s certainly not going to be a boring week.

This tweet from governor Cuomo of NY:

is unintentionally hilarious for two reasons.

#1 You can’t make NYers obey the law, that’s illegal!

Cuomo is basically attacking Donald Trump for the supreme crime of forcing people in New York to obey the law as written and how does he say he’s going to stop him, by going to the courts and arguing that it’s against the law to make people obey the law.

This begs the obvious question. If Mr Cuomo believes it’s OK for people in NY to disobey and ignore the law if they don’t like it, does that mean that it’s ok for Donald Trump and the administration to disobey and ignore any court ruling against him on this issue?

#2  NY won’t demonize diversity, except for diversity of Opinion!

Was it not just three years ago the Governor Cuomo was stating emphatically that if you are pro-life or pro-gun you aren’t welcome in NY?

The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate! Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.

As I wrote at the time:

Since we pro-life types are not welcome in NY anymore it might behoove us to use some kind of identification so that state officials can mark us undesirables if we enter or pass through the state. I understand the symbol to the right was quite popular not a very long time ago for that very purpose.juden

It’s also my understanding that people wearing such a mark were prevented from owning and or possessing firearms by the state, which was of course for their own good as such people could not be trusted with dangerous weapons, particularly people as extreme as they who opposed the sane and reasonable policies of the state that only wanted what was best for them.

Which leads to obvious question two  How will Governor Cuomo assure his friends on the left that his defense of those 42,000 will not include defending any pro-life or pro-2nd amendment positions.  Or does he automatically assume that all of these 42,000 have the same political, religious and 2nd amendment positions that he does?

Cuomo is a joke that New York has willingly played on itself.

The greatest unreported achievement of President Trump is that he’s knocked income inequality — the most divisive, yet silliest, issue in recent years — off the radar screen.

Spurred on by the thuggish Occupy mob, the predecessor of today’s even more thuggish Antifa gang, income inequality became the main obsession of Democrats and other elements of the Left in recent years. Throughout the 2016 campaign, the double “i” words were on all leftish lips. But then Trump became White House-bound, and “income inequality” vanished from the public forum even quicker than “The era of Big Government is over.”

You can’t blame the Dems for ginning up a brouhaha over income inequality. It’s the perfect weapon to wield when class warfare’s your game and dividing the country’s your aim.

The most important thing to know about income inequality is that it was never about helping the unfortunate poor. Most people mired in poverty are far too busy trying to simply survive to join protest movements. The spearhead of this egalitarian drive was forged from people of privilege whose social level was stages above the mere middle class.

But, to be fair, the allies egging on the hordes against the 1 percent did have their grievances. Their rage was stoked by frustration — they’d never have that plush Manhattan apartment, Ivy League cred for their spawn or vacations in the south of France on an annual household income of only $250,000.

It just plain wasn’t fair that corporate CEOs, hedge fund managers and investment bankers could afford such trifles, while folks earning a quarter-million bucks a year who considered themselves middle-class stalwarts were shut out of the good life.

Similar outrage was evident each step down the line, as people who were financially well off howled over the status of those who had just bit more (and obviously didn’t serve it).

Complaining about income inequality was a game anyone could play except maybe Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and Warren Buffett. It united the Democrats like no other issue.

The protesters who claimed to represent the 99 percent of American society constantly accused the 1 percent of greed. In actuality, the activists were guilty of envy, which is considered one of the Seven Deadly Sins because it can corrode the soul itself.

The foolishness of getting angry over someone else’s wealth came home to me as I was mowing my lawn in the summer of 1996. I was minding my own business when my neighbor motioned me over to the fence. After I turned off my mower, he launched into a 15-minute diatribe about Michael Jordan’s new contract.

It was, indeed, a monster of a deal that boosted His Airness’ salary from $3.85 million to an unprecedented $30 million — giving him more money than the combined salaries of entire NBA teams. I listened politely and nodded occasionally but wondered why he was so mad. After all, not a penny of Jordan’s pay was coming out of our pockets. Then it hit me: He was a Democrat.

When I got back my mowing, I couldn’t help but chuckle. My neighbor and his wife were both teachers whose combined pay was three times my annual salary — yet he was the one blowing his stack over a stranger’s good fortune.

Yes, income inequality, as an issue, has left the building, primarily because Democrats and the media are too busy raising a clamor over Trump, Russia and Melania’s stiletto heels. But while it’s gone, don’t expect a farewell tour.

It all boils down to envy, and that’s always in style for some people.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

The Declaration of Independence 1776

I really dislike having to write this post but we’ve reached a point where our culture and society have decayed for far that unfortunately this is necessary.

The Following things / groups are Bad

Neo Nazis/Nazism:  Nazism (National Socialism) is bad because its philosophy restricts freedom, oppresses people, considered them subservient to the state,  and justifies violence and murder against those who disagree with it.  Nazis themselves are bad because they espoused and carried out said violence, murder and oppression.    Modern Neo-Nazis despite their insignificant numbers in American, are in one respect even worse than actual Nazis because they still espouse the Nazi philosophy even after it had been demonstrated that said philosophy when tried leads to mass murder, massive oppression and one of the most destructive wars in the history of the world.

Communism/Communists:  Communists (another branch of socialism) is bad because it advocate a philosophy that restricts freedom of the individual, considers them subservient to the state and justifies oppression and murder against foes (and even friends) by defining them as “counter revolution enemies of the state”.  The worst thing about modern western Communists and their defenders, particularly in academia and media of which there are surprisingly many,  is they continue to support and defend this philosophy even though its implementation as demonstrated in country after country, has led to the mass murder of people in numbers that make the Nazi’s look like a bunch of pikers and that’s not even considering those imprisoned for political reasons and oppressed in other ways.

Klu Klux Klan/White Supremacists:  the KKK is bad because it advances a philosophy that elevates people based on race over others based on race rather than actions or merit.  They furthermore co-ops Christian symbolism which specifically states the equality of all people before God for the advancement of this goal.  Furthermore the KKK is bad because they have a recorded history of targeted terrorism and violence and dispensing extrajudicial “justice” and murder to enforce this philosophy.  While the modern Neo-Nazis modern Klansmen/white supremacists are a relatively insignificant number of people, they are also guilty of embracing a philosophy that has already been demonstrated as being evil and immoral and contrary to rights and freedom.

ANTIFA:  ANTIFA is bad because while they claim to be anti-fascists they are in fact violent fascists who advocate and practice violence, intimidation and vandalism to restrict the rights of people to peaceably assemble and exercise their rights as individuals and they also make common cause with Communists above when their targets dovetail.  Furthermore they do this even if said people or groups have followed all the legal requirements to peacefully assemble and target the police when they are used to.  Finally they calumny any voter or group that supports the current administration lumping them in with Nazis and White supremacists to justify violence against them as moral and just.  The fact that neither the media or the professional left chooses condemn them either due to fear or the fact that they target voters that they dislike doesn’t make them any less bad.

Political Violence:  Political violence is bad because it is used to restrict the speech and actions of individuals and groups for the sake of intimidation and control.  Said violence, even if directed against groups that are bad or committed by groups one has common cause with is unacceptable because it eliminates the free exchange of ideas and causes people to self censor out of fear of said violence.   Nor does the directing of such violence toward property rather than individuals make it any less acceptable or justifiable.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  A condemnation of political violence is not the same as precluding self-defense when targeted by said violence.

The following thing is good

The First Amendment:  The first amendment is good because it guarantees people the right to freely speak, assemble, worship in the way they see fit and to freely report and comment on events.  It provides the maximum amount of freedom to not only live and think the way they see fit but to freely comment and discuss events and opinions concerning not only philosophy but the actions of local state and federal government in the public square.  While it allows the freedom to advance fringe philosophies even if they are bad (see above) it freely allows such speech to be countered by more speech both publicly.  It is one of the cornerstones of the freest society in history and the envy of people around the world.

So the basic rundown

Nazis BAD!
Communists BAD!
KKK/White Supremacists BAD!
ANTIFA BAD!
Political Violence BAD!
Free Speech and First Amendment Rights GOOD!

For any American this list should be a no brainer and it can be summed up in a single image.

Now in fairness as an american you, of course, have the right to disagree with this list and critique it. In accordance with my own rights I submit and suggest if you are unable to agree with this entire list without hesitation, you should be excluded from any list of decent Americans.

Or put simply, if you can’t call Nazis,Communists, the KKK and ANTIFA out the problem isn’t America or anyone else, it’s you.

We’ve talked about how the events on the Boston Common justified some folks on the left and a few days later we named the Honorable Mentions in the Contest of being the big winner from events on the Boston Common.

Now the time has come to name the biggest single winner from the events of last weekend: Donald J. Trump.

To some of you this might seem counter intuitive. Since Charlottsville the entire MSM has fully embraced their new “Donald Trump/Nazi/KKK” meme to the point where you have to make real effort to find the word “Russia” in any kind of coverage anymore.

Furthermore in Boston for a week we’ve heard about a Nazi/Klan rally about to happen in Boston and once the event took place the media fully embraced the tale of tens of thousands of ordinary citizens assembling without violence united to counter the Nazis and their hero Donald J Trump.

Unfortunately for the MSM there were two problems with their uncritical assessment of the events of Boston. First of all the conspicuous lack of Nazis to protest.

IF ONE LINE captured the essence of Saturday’s Boston Common rally and counter-protest, it was a quote halfway through Mark Arsenault’s Page 1 story in the Boston Globe:

“‘Excuse me,’ one man in the counter-protest innocently asked a Globe reporter. ‘Where are the white supremacists?'”

That was the day in a nutshell. Participants in the “Boston Free Speech Rally” had been demonized as a troupe of neo-Nazis prepared to reprise the horror that had erupted in Charlottesville. They turned out to be a couple dozen courteous people linked by little more than a commitment to — surprise! — free speech.

And then there were the actions of some of the protesters particularly the ANTIFA folks which while downplayed by the national and local media were highlighted by Boston Police Tweets like this

and this:

and covered like my own and others showing ANTIFA thugs being, well Antifa thugs

And a few days later in Arizona, they were going after police again:

A group of anti-Trump demonstrators used gas canisters, rocks and bottles to assault police Tuesday night and create havoc at what officials said was mostly a peaceful protest in Phoenix.

Video captured by a local reporter also shows a smoking object being thrown at police while hundreds of officers attempted to keep order at a rally after President Trump’s speech at the Phoenix Convention Center had ended.

Targeting police might be popular with the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democrat party, but swing voters who don’t like their car windows smashed or their small business vandalized might not be all that anxious to vote for a party whose foot soldiers are masked and whose violence the media is defending them and calling em peace activists.

And even if you accept that the violence was from a comparatively small part of the crowd in Boston, the chants calling the USA racist and fascists were not.

Yeah that will get you those votes you need to flip back swing states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin or Iowa.

And while you aren’t seeing the MSM play any of those chants trust me, videos like that one are being shared all over facebook and the fact that they can be seen on facebook and not on ABC/NBC/CBS/MSNBC or CNN will simply confirm the President’s charge that the MSM have been conveyors of fake news all along.

The events of Boston and Phoenix might make folks in blue states and a media obsessed with statues and millionaire footballs players without seven figure paychecks feel good about themselves

But the reality is those events are walking talking Trump 2020 ads that are going to coin votes for him in every swing state that the left has to win back if they are going to beat him next time around.

Now of course it’s possible that Donald Trump might decide that as much fun as it is to bait the left and the Establishment GOP he’d much rather go back to his old life.

But if he decides to run for re-election, in my opinion, the events of Boston and Phoenix have already done the job.

Useful idiots indeed.

When I spoke at the Friday Morning Group a few weeks ago I was preceded by Dianna Ploss formerly of the Trump Campaign now the new head of the Boston Chapter of Act For America

She was talking about her Sept 9th event that unfortunately was going to conflict with my Stacy McCain in Leominster, I say was because that event is a casualty of Boston.

ACT for America is canceling its America First Rallies, previously scheduled for Saturday, September 9, “out of an abundance of caution” due “to the recent violence in America and in Europe.” The national security organization will instead replace the 67 rallies organized across 36 states with an online “Day of ACTion.”
In a press release, exclusively given to Breitbart News, event organizers say the reason for making the difficult decision “is to contribute to the de-escalation of rising tension and violence in America while pursuing the organization’s goal of a safe and secure America.”

This was the real goal of the tactics of ANTIFA and the media, to silence and marginalize effective opposition voices. That this has happened is a national disgrace.

On the bright side, if you are a member of ACT Boston and are looking for something to do Saturday Sept 9th might I suggest you click here to join us for Stacy McCain event in Leominster, I would be proud to have you join us. You can get your tickets here.

A busy day for DaTechGuy today

In a few minutes I leave to go to the studios of WLMW 90.7 FM to join old friend John Weston on The Right Group from 4-6 PM

We’ll be talking my coverage of events on the Boston Common, my new Radio show Your Prayer Intentions saturdays at noon on WQPH 89.3 , My Book Hail Mary the Perfect Protestant (And Catholic) Prayer and the Stacy McCain event coming to Leominster Ma Sept 9th (get your tickets here).

From there we head straight to Worcester where I will speak at tonight’s Worcester tea Party about the same events at Eller’s restaurant.

Hope you can join us either in person or on the radio today.

If you’re looking for people to blame for the events in Charlottesville, you can add liberals to the list, particularly those in the ACLU and the U.S. Supreme Court.

The ability to march in Charlottesville comes directly as a result of a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 1977, with the ACLU arguing for neo-Nazis to march in Skokie, Illinois, where many Holocaust survivors lived.

In the case, National Socialist Party of America v. Village of Skokie, 432 U.S. 43 (1977), the ACLU got the liberal bloc of the court to determine that the use of the swastika was a symbolic form of free speech entitled to First Amendment protection. The court also ruled that the neo-Nazis, under the right of assembly in the First Amendment, could march through the predominantly Jewish city near Chicago.

As a reporter for Newsweek, I covered the Skokie story and found myself puzzled about the events back then. Today, as I teach media law, I still am rather puzzled why the neo-Nazis in Chicago and Charlottesville were allowed to protest. Here is some background on those events: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/commentary/ct-neo-nazi-skokie-march-flashback-perspec-0312-20170310-story.html

On its website, the ACLU lauds its stance as “taking a stand for free speech.” Moreover, the organization notes: “The notoriety of the case caused some ACLU members to resign, but to many others, the case has come to represent the ACLU’s unwavering commitment to principle. In fact, many of the laws the ACLU cited to defend the group’s right to free speech and assembly were the same laws it had invoked during the Civil Rights era when Southern cities tried to shut down civil rights marches with similar claims about the violence and disruption the protests would cause.”

The ACLU says now that it will not defend people’s freedom of speech and right to assemble if they carry guns. I guess the Second Amendment doesn’t count anymore.

Nevertheless, here’s some of what is protected under the First Amendment:

–People can burn a flag.
–Burn a cross.
–Say “f***” in public but not on the radio.
–Curse a police officer.
–Use hate speech.
–Show sexual intercourse on HBO and the Internet but not on ABC.
–Call Marines homosexuals during a funeral as long as you are on a public sidewalk.

Many members of the liberal bloc on the U.S. Supreme Court supported these protections, while some, if not all, of the conservative bloc did not.

The argument usually follows the notion of the marketplace of ideas—a theory put forward by John Stuart Mills that all ideas should be allowed to be expressed because only those with the most validity will triumph. Furthermore, an arbiter of what constitutes improper speech might exclude disagreeable opinions.

Somehow, I think the founders may have had other ideas about what should constitute freedom of speech and right to “peaceably” assemble. The founders generally agreed that freedom of religion was the most important characteristic of the First Amendment, but there was a split when it came to other parts.

As the Heritage Foundation notes in its extensive background on the U.S. Constitution:

[John] Marshall and other Federalists argued that the freedom of the press must necessarily be limited, because “government cannot be…secured, if by falsehood and malicious slander, it is to be deprived of the confidence and affection of the people.” Not so, reasoned [James] Madison and other Republicans: even speech that creates “a contempt, a disrepute, or hatred [of the government] among the people” should be tolerated because the only way of determining whether such contempt is justified is “by a free examination [of the government’s actions], and a free communication among the people thereon.” It was as if half the country read the constitutional guarantee one way, and the other half, the other way.

The founding generation undoubtedly believed deeply in the freedom of speech and of the press, but then, as now, these general terms were understood quite differently by different people. Many people did not think about their precise meanings until a concrete controversy arose; and when a controversy did arise, the analysis was often influenced by people’s political interests as much as by their honest constitutional understanding.

When people argue that President Trump should be blamed for the actions of neo-Nazis, just tell them to read about Skokie and thank the liberals for providing the ability for wingnuts to speak and to assemble.
