While Obama's loyal liberal student followers were willing to camp out all night in order to get a glimpse of their president when he spoke at the University of Texas last month, First Amendment rights were being violated just outside the doors.
Watch below as John Bush, director of Texans for Accountable Government, comes to protest Obama and engage in peaceful debate on public space, but is arrested and thrown in jail! If this isn't bad enough, John Bush had a press pass and was in a "free-speech zone!"
Bush, noted that he was not only redressing his grievances, but also exercising his freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and his right to peaceably assemble, all of which are enumerated within the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
“The whole idea of a ‘free-speech zone’ is repugnant to the First Amendment of the US Constitution. Americans must realize that the entire country is a free speech zone! I encourage everybody to learn their rights and to exercise them whenever possible. Stand strong in the face of adversity if you know you are doing no wrong. Together, we can make Austin the most free and prosperous city in the world!”
