Graeme Phillip Harris has been indicted on a trumped-up civil rights charge for tying a noose onto a statue of a negro at a Mississippi campus. No matter how distasteful some may find the act, it has long been argued that such acts fall into the category of "freedom of expression". This evokes memories of flag burning, or a crucifix floating in urine in a certain NYC museum. So black rappers can sell millions of copies of record albums which scream "kill Whitey", and those albums get airplay over and over on the FCC-regulated airwaves. Or black movie stars like Jamie Foxx can gloat about killing White people on national television, and all of that is okay. Or black academics such as Kamau Kambon can stand televised on C-Span and assert that all White people should be exterminated, and that is okay. It is all "free speech". According to this latest government ploy, we can cite case after case of overt conspiracies to violate the "Civil Rights" of Whites by professing open desires to kill them. Yet they are all "free speech", and the noose-tying incident is not? It is clear that the Obama government has found a back door to prosecuting "thought crimes" by abusing current Civil Rights laws.
We hope to offer an expanded commentary on this incident in the very near future.
In September of 2015 Graeme Phillip Harris was sentenced to 6 months in prison and 12 months probabtion.
In March of 2016 Austin Reed Edenfield was sentenced to 12 months probation for assisting Harris.
This is an astounding transgression against the right to free expression, which evidently is only a right reserved for Leftists.
