Winter Park, FL kills Free Speech
Death is always a strange thing- the most somber of stages in the circle. What caused the death? Was it expected- or was it a tragic accident that stilled the dearly departed?
Here in Winter Park, Florida, there's no question what caused the death of our dearly departed Free Speech: it was none other than the Winter Park City Commission.
As the article discusses, there were a number of folks who chose to exercise their Constitutionally-guaranteed right of free speech a month or so ago. Funny thing, though- Winter Park has chosen to side with Jenna Tosh, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando rather versus that dusty ol' "U.S. Constitution" thing.
This is a decision that should shock the nation. Our Constitution's Bill of Rights was drafted with an intent to protect the opinions of the minorities and their freedom to express them- with the premise that the majority needs no such protection.
In this troubling move, the Winter Park City Commission has chosen to forfeit the Constitutional rights of many in order to satisfy the desires of an individual who sees those rights as just a tad bit inconvenient for her.
