Rush Limbaugh: What’s Really Happening in Baltimore
RUSH: In Baltimore we’ve got some great audio sound bites coming. The former state attorney, who used to do the job before Marilyn Mosby, went on CNN this morning about a quarter ’til 12, less than a half hour ago, and just made mincemeat out of Mosby and the entire process that has been used to arrive at charges for these cops.
The infobabe and the Ken doll anchor over at CNN were beside themselves, and they kept trying to trip this woman up. She would make an assertion — you’ll hear it coming up in a moment — “What do you mean?”
“Well, it’s like I just told you,” and then she repeated what she originally said.
“But, but, but, how can that be?”
“Look at what I just said.” And they feature her repeating it again. They finally dumped out of it because it wasn’t going well.
The new attorney general, Loretta Lynch, has gone to Baltimore to meet with the bereaved family of Freddie Gray. Do you know, by the way, in Ferguson there is a memorial right there in the middle of the street where the Gentle Giant — The false witness, the guy who lied about “hands up, don’t shoot,” the guy who lied to the grand jury who ought to be charged, he’s now suing. (laughing)
He’s suing the cop, and he’s suing the City of Ferguson. He lied about Gentle Giant being shot in the back with “hands up, don’t shoot” running away. If anything, he ought to be charged, he’s now suing. Anyway, this memorial in the center of the street where the Gentle Giant fell — sorry — attacked the cop and tried to get in the cop car. Some people are now making a move to get rid of the memorial. It’s literally in the middle of the street. Some people are calling it an eyesore. That’s not going over well. It’s impeding traffic and a number of things, and the whole idea of removing the memorial is not sitting well with some...(MORE)
Media Look to Criminalize ‘Hate Speech’ After Geller’s Mohammed Drawing Event
(Breitbart) – On Wednesday morning, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo broke out a heapin’ helpin’ of legal know-how, explaining to ignoramuses on Twitter that Pamela Geller’s event encouraging submissions of drawings of Mohammed amounted to “hate speech” apparently uncovered by the Constitution:
it doesn’t. hate speech is excluded from protection. dont just say you love the constitution…read it https://t.co/znZJ8cPvpX

When the Fordham Law graduate was asked what in the Constitution left “hate speech” excluded from protection, he cited the case of Chaplinsky v. State of New Hampshire(1942). Actually, he cited it over and over and over again on Twitter, apparently under the misimpression that if he kept repeating the word “Chaplinsky,” Beetlejuice would magically appear and alter the First Amendment’s text and meaning.
The Chaplinsky case, for the record, found that “fighting words” – direct insults to people personally – were not Constitutionally protected. That case is totally inapplicable to Pam Geller’s drawings of Mohammed; the Supreme Court has found that burning the flag, KKK cross burnings, KKK anti-Semitic marches, and Westboro Baptist church demonstrations at military funerals, among other offensive speech, are all protected by the First Amendment. Eventually, Cuomo was forced to concede that he didn’t know what he was talking about, and suggested that most “hate speech” was in fact covered by the First Amendment...(MORE)
