Stop Congress from Limiting Free Speech
    #2410582 - 03/09/04 11:49 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

From: Matt Howes, National Internet Organizer, ACLU
To: ACLU Action Network Members
Date: March 9, 2004

Despite the uproar around the federal marriage amendment, the Senate is
holding a hearing this week on another proposed amendment to the U.S.
Constitution ?- one that would change the First Amendment for the first
time ever.

The proposed amendment would ban the desecration of the American flag,
and in doing so desecrate what the flag represents, and what millions
of Americans have died to defend.

As Senator John Glenn has said, those "who died following that banner,
did not give up their lives for a red, white and blue piece of cloth.
It would be a hollow victory indeed if we preserved the symbol of our
freedoms by chipping away at those fundamental freedoms themselves."

Take Action! Urge your Senators to oppose the Flag Desecration

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
I have little doubt that this awful idea will fail, but lent my voice to the aclu on this issue anyway.

The First Amedment has already been invalidated by campaign finance reform.

plus how many examples of free sp(R?)eech rights violations do you need from the bush administration and the political governing bodies alike?
