Re: “'A Work in Progress'

The ignorance of this all strikes at the Constitution. In Matal v. Tam, 137 S. Ct. 1744, 582 U.S. (Supreme Court 2017), the Supreme Court again emphasized long standing law: "Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express 'the thought that we hate.' Citing, United States v. Schwimmer, 279 U. S. 644, 655 (1929)." As much as one may find the speech and existence of neo-Nazi's, skinheads and white supremacists in our realm personally offensive, of which I am one that does find them offensive, I will defend their right to free speech and deplore any agency of the government that attempts to impinge on that Constitutionally protected freedom. When I see government employees, of which my daughter, Sofia Pereira, is one, taking steps to impinge on a Constitutional right, I am going to call it out. The Arcata "Not in Our Town" proclamation is the fancy way of saying, Constitutionally protected speech is not allowed in Arcata. Let the book burning begin.
