People Are Beginning to Push Back

Push back on Governors and other politicians who want to trample their civil rights, that is. As several people have noted, the ACLU has been strangely quiet on a lot of these cases.

First up, Kentucky. Lawsuit alleges Gov. Beshear infringed on protesters’ First Amendment rights.

A federal lawsuit filed on behalf of four protesters alleges that Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear violated First Amendment rights over restrictions to keep protesters at a distance during daily COVID-19 briefings.

North Carolina: ‘We’re concerned that our First Amendment rights are being trampled underfoot’ | Winston-Salem pastor files lawsuit against Governor Cooper.

The lawsuit alleges the Governor’s executive orders preventing gatherings of more than ten people violate the Constitution.

In media news… ‘Protected by the First Amendment’: Media consortiums back Fox News amid coronavirus coverage lawsuit.

It seems a bunch of Karens have decided that Fox News opinion personalities are not entitled to First Amendment protection of their opinions. Not when broadcast on cable television. And while the ACLU can’t be reached for comment, two groups that support journalists, The Internet & Television Association and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, have stepped up to defend Fox.

As usual, the Babylon Bee has perhaps the best take on the issue. ‘I Can’t Believe Christians Think It’s Safe To Go Back To Church,’ Says Woman In Line At Walmart.

I found these stories, and many more, when I went looking for more info on the Mississippi Church burning.
