Strange bedfellows: the ACLU, Neal Boortz & Cobb County police  Commentary by Steve Scroggins

The title for this column may strike you as a bizarre grouping, but recent events make the connection clear.

As I was reading a May 3 column by Mike S. Adams on the subject of campus "speech codes," I noted that Adams refers to a promise he made to radio talkshow host Neanderthal Neal Boortz.

Of course, Boortz is a champion of free speech, as long as we're talking about HIS speech and that of a few others he approves. All others, of course, are subject to his scorn, ridicule and sarcasm. If Boortz were a dictator rather than a radio bigmouth, one wonders whether he would eliminate all free speech except for himself.

I recognize that his whiney griping and railing is just a part of his radio persona and that he considers it his job to make people angry.

Perhaps I'm wrong about Boortz, and he would actually support free speech for others with whom he disagrees. Perhaps he just can't suggest such things for fear of sounding like a "liberal bedwetter." I just find it a contradiction that Boortz can rail about campus free speech for academia and wet-behind-the-ears students and then have a hissy about taxpaying Georgia citizens actually expressing political grievances to their elected representatives.

One form of free political speech that Boortz apparently dislikes is "flagging." Boortz has taken numerous verbal shots at "flaggers," using his own derisive term, "flaggots," with its clearly intended innuendo.

In return, Boortz has received a few retaliatory jabs for his primitive views on flaggers. Boortz and I agree on a number of subjects, such as the ridiculous and offensive nature of college campus "speech codes." These codes are intended to squelch certain "politically INcorrect" free speech in institutions where free speech is ostensibly revered. Clearly, we disagree with regard to our state flag and the citizen protests against the political theft of our honored symbol.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is an organization that ostensibly defends the "civil liberties" of Americans. The ACLU advances all manner of litigation to protect First Amendment rights, such as the rights of women to dance nude in bars, or the rights of pornographers to distribute obscene films and images and the rights of all citizens to have public properties free from any religious reference such as the Ten Commandments, prayers or Christmas nativity scenes. But for some bizarre reason, the ACLU cannot bring itself to defend the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans to own firearms. It takes some intellectual acrobatics to support one and deny the other. Inconsistency is the attribute that the ACLU and Neal Boortz share.

While Boortz champions his own free speech and that on college campuses, he can't bring himself to support free speech by Georgia citizens who seek redress of their grievances, such as those seeking the right to a fair vote on the Georgia state flag (one including the '56 flag).

Most recently, May 1st (the Marxist holiday known as "May Day") to be exact, police in Cobb County decided that free speech was no longer a right of Georgia citizens, at least not citizens with flags on public sidewalks in front of the Marriott Hotel in Cobb County. Cobb County, previously known to be "flagger friendly," abruptly changed its policy and police confiscated several flags and signs that were legally on public sidewalks which are part of public rights of way. As of Monday, the flags and signs have been returned to their rightful owners. There will be no formal apology (or federal charges) for this civil rights violation against the flaggers, but the return of the flags and signs is an admission that the flaggers were in the RIGHT. See the photos below.

From his hand gesture, this Marriot hotel manager shown above holds the flaggers in the same high regard as does Neal Boortz, only he's a little more eloquent than Boortz.

The ACLU and Boortz favor civil liberties for certain people whose ideas they deem worthy. The Cobb police apparently agreed with Boortz as of Saturday that "flaggers" are one of those kinds of people whose rights are not important because someone "important" finds their message disagreeable. Cobb police have since seen the error of their ways.

Boortz expresses hope on his website that by next year "these knuckledraggers will be extinct." Don't count on it, Neal. And don't join the Fools Brigade of Barnes and Perdue, who both predicted that flaggers would soon "fade away." Perdue has been flagged over 70 times since he signed the Perdue/Chamber flag into law (05/08/03). That's not counting other turncoats all over the state. While we're on this subject, Neal, there are many more flaggers than you think.

Mike Adams is right to protest college campus "speech codes." The same principles of free speech should also apply off the campus given that the Framers' intent was to protect political free speech. One wonders how Boortz can rail against free speech violations such as "speech codes" and then support the suppression of free speech by flaggers. How do you do that, Neal?

Somebody's gotta ask.

Boortz, the ACLU and the Cobb County police should carefully consider the words of Thomas Jefferson: "It behooves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to resist invasions of it in the case of others."
