Dallas Police have banned free speech in Dealey Plaza for the 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK, threatening to fine people if they hand out fliers or display signs within a 75 feet radius of all major roads in the area.
Authorities claim the handing out of fliers or displaying of signs represents a violation of two city ordinances. Activists are of a different opinion, believing that the First Amendment trumps any such ordinance.
Mainstream media and other press outlets who will be regurgitating the official narrative behind the death of JFK are not subject to the same draconian measures and have been granted free access to Dealey Plaza. There isn’t even a “free speech zone” in which ordinary Americans can voice their opinion.
During a confrontation with Dallas Police last night, Alex Jones and assembled free speech activists were told they would be ticketed if they exercised their First Amendment. Protesters chanted, “hell no, we won’t go!” as police left the scene.
