From the NY Times:
The Supreme Court on Monday struck down on First Amendment grounds a California law that barred the sale of violent video games to children. The 7-to-2 decision was the latest in a series of rulings protecting free speech, joining ones on funeral protests, videos showing cruelty to animals and political speech by corporations.
- Content of video games? Yup – that’s speech.
- Homophobic turds holding up signs outside of funerals of people they have no personal connection to? Yup – that’s speech.
- Animal torture videos? Yup – that’s speech (though hopefully all such videos will be used as evidence in animal cruelty prosecutions.)
- Giving corporations the green light to buy government? Nope – that’s fascism, courtesy of the already-bought-and-paid-for Justices Scalia, Thomas, Roberts and Alito.
As for who actually believes in free speech?
Justice Thomas said the Constitution did not protect minors’ free speech rights
Typical conservative christianist. Children have all imaginable rights….
until they’re born.
Clarence Thomas is a perjurer and the epitome of judicial dishonesty. It is time for him to go.
