“You Are Fined One Credit for Violation of the Verbal Morality Statute”
This move has drawn outrage from Constitutional scholars, Libertarians, and activists throughout the blogosphere, and so it should.
For those that say, “if the town voted yes and is ok with it, then it should be fine,” there’s just one thing Middleborough forgot about…
Judge Andrew Napolitano weighed in on the law, saying it’s not legal.
Several years ago after Judge Napolitano left the bench, he helped dismiss a case against a basketball coach who cursed at a reporter. The judge explained that the court ruled that the curse word was an “intensifier; it is part of our language, and it can be used with impunity in public.” He suggested that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court rules the same way the first time someone is fined for swearing.
Adam Kokesh aka Adam vs The Man, American veteran, activist and talk radio host is organizing a “Free FUCKING Speech Demonstration in Middleborough, MA” on June 25th, 2012.
Middleborough, Massachusetts recently instituted a ban on cursing in public areas, imposing a $20 fine on anyone caught guilty of such an offense. This is obviously FUCKING BULLSHIT, and unconstitutional as well! So ADAM VS THE MAN is putting the call out for a large civil disobedience protest on Monday, June 25th from 12:30-1:00pm. Bring your bullhorn and foulest vocabulary to the Town Hall at 10 Nickerson Avenue, Middleborough MA 02346 and engage in the most profane conversation possible with your fellow liberty lovers. Let’s show these uptight assholes what freedom of fucking speech is all about!
