New York City Declares Null And Void Another Part Of 1st Amendment


“…in questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the constitution.” Thomas Jefferson

New York City, where an American may be fined up to $250,000 per offense by the thought police for calling someone an ‘illegal alien’ when “motivated by hate”, bans the right to assembly.
“…while we greatly, greatly respect the right of people to protest, there should not be protests…” NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea. WHAT?

Uproar when Bill de Blasio, NYPD commissioner declare protests won’t be tolerated amid shutdown

Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea claimed this week that the First Amendment rights of free speech and assembly have to take a back seat to the executive orders issued in the efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19.

“You’re talking about some of the values we hold in the highest regard in this country and certainly in this city, the right for people to gather, the right to free speech and the right to protest,” the police commissioner said.

“But now comes the bad news,” Shea added. “We’re in a pandemic and executive orders have been issued, these are laws that have been passed down through executive order to keep people alive, while we greatly, greatly respect the right of people to protest, there should not be protests taking place in the middle of a pandemic by gathering outside and putting people at risk.”
