” Greg Vied is a 17 year-old Puerto Rican high school student on a quest for his first amendment rights, but he’s doing it by strapping a big red and blue Confederate Battle Flag that says “redneck” to his blue pickup truck.
Vied also has the words “redneck Cadillac” written on the back of the truck, and on the front side of the truck it says “hate me yet?”
Vied said he’s had the flag up on his truck since he got it back in January, but it’s only caused a problem for him at school over the past week.
You see, Vied originally got suspended, but then the school got a letter from the ACLU advocating that they should uphold Vied’s first amendments rights, and so the suspension ended.
“ They said that it was offending some people, but they didn’t tell me who it was offending or how many people were offended and I told them that I still wasn’t gonna take it down. It was my first amendment right to have the flag up and I was gonna keep it up until I graduate,” Vied explained.
Greg’s mom, Lisa Martinez, confirms that this is not a case of bigotry.
“ We’re not bigoted at all in this house. I’m gay. His sister’s gay. I’m Puerto Rican,” she said.”
If the First Amendment doesn’t protect “offensive” speech then it protects nothing . Bravo to this young man who , as a child of Puerto Rican descent , makes a much tougher target to demonize by the forces of the PC thought police . Good luck to him .
” Islamic law is to be effectively enshrined in the British legal system for the first time under guidelines for solicitors on drawing up “Sharia compliant” wills.
Under ground-breaking guidance, produced by The Law Society, High Street solicitors will be able to write Islamic wills that deny women an equal share of inheritances and exclude unbelievers altogether.
The documents, which would be recognized by Britain’s courts, will also prevent children born out of wedlock – and even those who have been adopted – from being counted as legitimate heirs.
Anyone married in a church, or in a civil ceremony, could be excluded from succession under Sharia principles, which recognize only Muslim weddings for inheritance purposes.
Some lawyers, however, described the guidance as “astonishing”, while campaigners warned it represented a major step on the road to a “parallel legal system” for Britain’s Muslim communities.”
Here is the real war on women , brought to you by the self-righteous fools on the Left … coming soon to an American state near you .
” Baroness Cox, a cross-bench peer leading a Parliamentary campaign to protect women from religiously sanctioned discrimination, including from unofficial Sharia courts in Britain, said it was a “deeply disturbing” development and pledged to raise it with ministers.
“This violates everything that we stand for,” she said. “It would make the Suffragettes turn in their graves.”
The Telegraph has more on this insanity … the civilizational suicide accelerates … What’s next ? Stonings ? Where will the progression stop ?
” A Homeland Security initiative to put fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border could discriminate against minorities, according to an Obama-appointed federal judge who’s ruled that the congressionally-approved project may have a “disparate impact on lower-income minority communities.”
This of course means that protecting the porous—and increasingly violent—southern border is politically incorrect. At least that’s what the public college professor at the center of the case is working to prove and this month she got help from a sympathetic federal judge. Denise Gilman, a clinical professor at the taxpayer-funded University of Texas-Austin, is researching the “human rights impact” of erecting a barrier to protect the U.S. from terrorists, illegal immigrants, drug traffickers and other serious threats.
The professor sued in federal court arguing that the public interest in how the fence will impact landowners outweighed any privacy concerns. The data will allow the public to analyze whether the government is treating property owners equally and fairly or whether the wall is being built in such a way that it disadvantages “minority property owners,” according to the professor. It will also help the public understand the actual dimensions of the wall and decisions related to where it’s placed.
Judge Beryl Howell, appointed to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia by President Obama in 2010, agreed that the public interest is significant. Her 37-page ruling also seems to indicate that she bought the discrimination argument. “Revealing the identities of landowners in the wall’s planned construction site may shed light on the impact on indigenous communities, the disparate impact on lower-income minority communities, and the practices of private contractors,” Howell wrote.”

CPAC 2014 – Dr. Ben Carson, Professor Emeritus and Author

” Benjamin “Ben” Carson, Sr., Neurosurgeon, Professor Emeritus at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, author of “America the Beautiful”, and the 2008 recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush, speaks at CPAC 2014 on March 8, 2014.

” The Washington Redskins issued a scathing response to two lawmakers Monday after they called for the team to change its controversial name.
Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., and Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., told NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in a letter that the league is on the “wrong side of history” in allowing the Redskins to keep their name, which some see as a slur.
“ It is, in fact, an insult to Native Americans,” Cantwell and Cole wrote.
But the team fired back in a statement, saying that Cantwell – who chairs the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs – has better things to do with her time.
“ Senator Cantwell should be aware that there are many challenges facing Native Americans, including an extremely cold winter with high energy bills, high unemployment, life threatening health problems, inadequate education and many other issues more pressing than the name of a football team which has received strong support from Native Americans,” the statement said. “Surely, with all the issues Congress is supposed to work on such as the economy, jobs, war and health care, the Senator must have more important things to do,” the statement said.”
It’s no wonder our government is so screwed up when we have politicians that can’t even do the jobs that they are paid for now presuming to speak for the tribes of North America even though only nine percent of “native American’s” find the name Redskins offensive .
They obviously have too much time on their hands and need to be sent home to learn something of the real world problems that haunt their constituents , problems that are apparently invisible from the Ivory tower of Capital Hill .
” I’m watching the Super Bowl, looks like good defense (Seattle) is trouncing good offense (Denver) when a Coca Cola commercial came on and it started rather patriotically with the words of “America the Beautiful.”
Then the words went from English to languages I didn’t recognize. Now, I know the politically correct thing is to foster multiculturalism — working really well in Europe — but we should remember the words spoken by President Teddy Roosevelt;
Every immigrant who comes here should be required within five years to learn English or leave the country.”
In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American. If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isn’t doing his part as an American.
There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile.
We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, and American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding house; and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
If you were offended by Coca Cola’s disrespect for “America the Beautiful” and their multiculti/PC attempt at “Balkanizing” American society let them know how you feel . Col West has more .
Swiss Member Of Parliament Oskar Freysinger Has Had Enough
Published on Dec 9, 2013
” Oskar Freysinger, a member of the Swiss Parliament gave a passionate speech filled with truth that no politician in Washington, DC has yet to give from the floor of Congress. He calls out Islam for what it is: A dogma that is gnawing away at the pillars of our system of laws, wherever it is granted the space to do so.

” The U.S. Army War College , which molds future field generals, has begun discussing whether it should remove its portraits of Confederate generals — including those of Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.
Nestled in rural Pennsylvania on the 500-acre Carlisle Barracks, the war college is conducting an inventory of all its paintings and photographs with an eye for rehanging them in historical themes to tell a particular Army story.
During the inventory, an unidentified official — not the commandant, Maj. Gen. Anthony A. Cucolo III — asked the administration why the college honors two generals who fought against the United States, college spokeswoman Carol Kerr said.
“ I do know at least one person has questioned why we would honor individuals who were enemies of the United States Army,” Ms. Kerr said. “There will be a dialogue when we develop the idea of what do we want the hallway to represent.” “

” In the name of diversity and multiculturalism, Western governments will gladly edge towards extinction as long as they’re seen as “tolerant” among dim-witted constituencies.

” The National Football League has been infested with political correctness, and the league has decided that a punchy and poignant ad promoting self-defense just doesn’t make the cut.
The National Football League can no longer be trusted to be apolitical; whether it’s Bob Costas’ ignorant rants at halftime games or the month-long, unnecessary pink regalia, or the incessant babbling about
hazingbullying or treating us to baseless chatter about ineffective gun control – the radicals have hijacked the league with the intention of ruining it.
Mission accomplished: the manly, competitive game of football is increasingly shunned and the sport’s youth participation is plummeting. A nation full of whiny weaklings – that’s the left’s utopia.”
Don’t forget the NFL’s cooperation with the Obama administration in trying to sell Obamacare . Our “leaders” in that cesspit we call Washington have managed to corrupt and co-opt virtually all of the entertainment industries in the pursuit of the Statist agenda .
Remember who supports liberty and individual responsibility and who supports Statism when it comes time to spend your hard-earned entertainment dollars . It used to be that all we had to worry about was Hollywood but now even the sports franchises are being infected with the rot of political cronyism .
” The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.
So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol? Is the proverbial top bass banning the flag? Is President Obama? “” The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries.

For the uninitiated here are some links to the storied history of the Navy Jack , a history that is irrevocably entwined with the history of our country itself and beautifully reflects the “radicalism” of the Founders and our great nation .
” What is the meaning of life? The answer is worth $24,953, at least according to the National Endowment for the Humanities, a taxpayer-funded federal agency that is providing an educational grant to study the question.
“What is the good life and how do I live it?” Well, for $25,000 in tax dollars, NEH has tasked someone with finding out.
Sessions has personally taken a closer look at the NEH grant program and now has “questions” about some of the awards that have been granted, including one for $24,999 to determine, “What is a monster?
Here are a few more examples of recent educational program grants:
— Why are we interested in the past? $24,803
— Why are people bad? $23,390
— What is belief? $24,526
— Why do humans write? $24,774
The NEH spends about $150 million annually, though Republicans recently proposed slashing its budget by half.”
We can save the taxpayers $25k . The State is the monster . Plain and simple .
” In the latest example of small-mindedness plaguing our educational system, schools around the country are attempting to ban costumes and candy on what is surely one of most kids’ favorite days of the year. The excuses range from vague concerns about “safety” to specific worries about food allergies to—get this—fears of breaching the wall of separation between church and state.
But whatever the motivation, the end result is the same as what Charlie Brown used to get every time he went trick-or-treating: a big old rock in the candy bag. What sort of lesson are we teaching our kids when we ban even a tiny, sugar-coated break in their daily grind (or, even worse, substitute a generic, Wicker Man-style “Fall Festival” for Halloween)? Mostly that we are a society that is so scared of its own shadow that we can’t even enjoy ourselves anymore. We live in fear of what might be called the killjoy’s veto, where any complaint is enough to destroy even the least objectionable fun.”
” The University of Mississippi will now force all students who attended a play about murdered gay student Matthew Shepard to go to a re-education session because a few unidentified audience members disrupted the performance by voicing anti-gay slurs and laughing at the wrong times, reports The Commercial Appeal.
The Ole Miss administration had charged a six-person Bias Incident Response Team with determining exactly which students (or non-students) disrupted a university theater production of “The Laramie Project,” a play based on reaction to the 1998 torture and murder of Shepard, a student who attended the University of Wyoming.”
Muslim Sensitivity Training In South Park
” The inclusion of women in infantry training is part of the Marine Corps’ extensive research process stemming from the Defense Department’s historic decision earlier this year to repeal its Direct Combat Exclusion Rule, enacted in 1994. The move opened about 237,000 jobs to women across all of the services, including nearly 54,000 jobs in the Marine Corps. While some troops see it as a step toward equal rights, others contend it will weaken the military’s combat units.”
“A student at Sonoma State University was ordered to remove her cross necklace because a school supervisor thought other students would find it offensive. The case has been surrounded by so much controversy, that one school official even said it is an example of “political correctness [that] got out of hand.”
Student Audrey Jarvis, 19, said she was forced to seek a “religious accommodation” to be able to wear the cross. She and her lawyer have demanded an apology from Sonoma State.
Hiram Sasser, a lawyer with the Liberty Institute, is representing Jarvis. “It’s amazing in this day of diversity and tolerance on university campuses that a university official would engage in this type of obvious religious discrimination,” he said.
“It’s unfortunate there are university officials out there who think that it’s okay to tell Christians to hide their faith – but would cringe if somebody said the same thing about hiding someone’s pride in whatever political or cultural affiliation they may have,” Sasser said.”
