Free Speech Activists to Gather at Lincoln Memorial on June 25

Published

on

There has been a battle for free speech happening across the country in cities from Boston to Berkeley — and now it is heading straight for the nation’s capital.

On June 25, free speech activists will gather at the Lincoln Memorial to protest against the violent attempts to suppress right wing voices. An array of speakers will be taking the mic at the event, including Kyle Chapman (better known as Based Stick Man), Tim Treadstone (better known as Baked Alaska), Jack Posobiec, Augustus Invictus, Kyle Prescott, Jason Kessler, Irma Hinojosa, and James Allsup.

“In light of the dramatic increase in anti-Free Speech sentiment, legislative activity, violence (e.g., terrorist actions by ‘AntiFA’), and law enforcement activity (e.g., the LEO stand-down orders in Berkeley, CA), we the Free Speech Movement are gathered here to reaffirm a commitment to the basic necessity of Freedom of Speech in civil society,” the Facebook page for the event reads.

Previously, free speech events in Berkeley have lead to the blood of activists on both sides spilling onto the streets, and have continued to escalate — as violent leftists riot to prevent right wing speakers from being able to express their views.

Augustus Invictus, an attorney, publisher, and former Libertarian candidate for the US Senate who is travelling from Orlando to speak at the rally told Big League that this event is important because “people in America are sick to death of the totalitarian agenda of the left.”

“We were all raised in this country to believe in the freedom of speech and association, the right to bear arms, and all the rest that comes along with the Bill of Rights,” Invictus said. “The leftist violence we have seen across the country has been an attempt to suppress those freedoms that are guaranteed by our founding documents, and those of us speaking at the event are the necessary – and at this point, welcome – retribution.”

The fact that the rally is being held at the Lincoln Memorial is an important statement in itself, independent Journalist, author, and free speech activist Jack Posobiec told Big League Politics.

Posobiec stated that “we are following in the steps of Martin Luther King.”

“The Lincoln Memorial is a legendary symbol of civil rights in America and that is why it is so important for us to hold our free speech rally there in the face of threats from the militant left and domestic terrorists AntiFa, to let them know that we will not be silenced and our First Amendment civil rights will be upheld,” Posobiec added.

Colton Merwin, a Baltimore resident who is organizing the rally, told Big League Politics that he “was inspired originally by the gatherings in Berkeley and the riots at Milo’s event as well as the Inauguration.”

“We believe in speech as the mode by which we are both empowered to express our beliefs, and as the crucial instrument that allows us to peacefully reconcile differences that arise within an ideologically diverse community,” Merwin wrote in the event description. “Without the freedom to exercise this right, individuals possess no means by which they can settle their differences through persuasion and compromise, leaving them with no recourse other than leveraging the power of the state or using extrajudicial force against their ideological opponents. No free society can long survive when there is no peaceful outlet for resolving differences.”

BLP asked Merwin if he thinks there will be problems with AntiFa, as we have seen violent clashes nearly every time that free speech activists gather — most recently in Portland on Sunday.

“I am 80% sure they will be protesting, their upset after those arrested on J20 have fueled a bit of an uproar. If they do come, the police are on our side so we will be for the most part safe,” Merwin said. He also noted that he met with the DC police and the permits office yesterday and got the permits confirmed.

Interestingly, DC AntiFa already has a protest planned for the 25th, but it is not currently set as a response to the free speech rally. Groups such as “Smash Racism DC” who put out a target list prior to the inaugural ‘DeploraBall’ at the National Press Club have been actively organizing a protest outside the police department over arrests during the riot on inauguration day.

The protest they are holding is being advertised as a “speakout against fascism and state repression at Washington DC Metro Police Headquarters on Sunday, June 25, at 12:00 PM.”

Ironically, the left’s event is also being listed as a “free speech” rally. Judging by DC AntiFa’s previous antics and attempts to prevent right wing groups and individuals from holding speeches or gathering, they are advocates for “free speech for me, but not for thee.”

“The right wing can have their sham ‘free speech’ rallies, but we know they are mobilizing to deny even the right to exist to those who don’t look like them. They can wave their flags, as if they have forgotten that their stars are stolen indigenous land and their stripes are the blood of the poor and the enslaved,” a statement by the event organizers reads. “We will rally at the headquarters of one of the worst suppressors and deniers of speech—the police.”

VIDEO: Indiana Teacher Claims She Was Fired for Exposing Left-Wing ‘Social Emotional Learning’ Scheme

This woman’s story is going viral.

Published

on

An Indiana teacher released a viral video this week giving riveting testimony about her dismissal from a public school because of her activism efforts against left-wing educational schemes.

“My name is Jennifer, and I am a public school teacher who is also the founder of Purple for Parents Indiana,” she said. “I started Purple for Parents here to expose the truth about Red for Ed, the NEA and the radical agenda behind it.”

She believes that the National Education Association (NEA) is involved in a scheme to not only elect Democrats, but also indoctrinate and brainwash young minds through a sneaky overhaul of the curriculum in public schools.

“One of these hot topic issues is a push to change school culture through social emotional learning programs,” she explained.

“My school is currently in the third year of its SEL program called ‘Leader in Me.’ It is used to educate what they call the whole child through language manipulation, role playing, and influence of morals and values. As a teacher and a parent, I find this program to be very disturbing because these things should be taught by parents,” she said.

Jennifer said she was fired last Friday from her school as a result of exposing this agenda, based on a Facebook post she made the previous Monday exposing the agenda. Jennifer said that the school claimed she was “making them look bad” and being “untruthful” with her post.

“I want everyone to know that everything that I said was the truth. I believe parents should be aware of what’s going on, and my concern is truly because I care about children and parental rights,” she said.

Jennifer’s main concern with the SEL program is that it is being administered without parental consent, and parents have no ability to opt their children out.

“After being fired for speaking the truth, I immediately realized I can no longer trust the school to care fairly for my daughter, and I immediately unenrolled her,” she said. “I am deeply worried about what is going on in the public schools, and the measures that they will take to silence the truth.”

Jennifer had to choke back tears in the video when recalling how she was fired without being able to say goodbye to the students she cared for so much.

“I am an extremely hard-worker who is always kind and professional. It hurts me that I had to leave without saying goodbye to my students, and I have no idea what reason they will give for my absence,” she said.

Jennifer urged people to share her video to help raise awareness of what is going on in the school system, as leftists become more bold in their exploitation of the youth.

Her entire video address can be seen here:

Educational experts refer to SEL programs as “government-sponsored personality manipulation” and note how they cannot be tested for effectiveness due to their total subjectivity.

While Education Secretary Betsy Devos claims that Common Core is dead, the underlying principles behind the standards remain firmly in place. Exposing the agenda can have serious consequences.
