The Pacific Northwest Beclowns Itself

"No free speech for you, h8rs!"

Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler has called on the federal government to revoke an already-issued permit for what he believes is an “alt-right” protest scheduled to take place in the city on Sunday

The protest will take place on federal property which is why the feds are involved in the permit process.

Mayor Butthurt is all concerned and shit:

“My concern is they’re coming here to peddle a message of hatred and bigotry,” Wheeler said Monday during a news conference. “They have a First Amendment right to speak, but hate speech is not protected.”

So this idiot is a student in the Howard Dean Law School Where You Get To Make Shit Up.

The organizer has told the mayor to go pee up a rope, that he plans to go ahead with the protest as scheduled.

Surprisingly, the ACLU is on the side of the "alt-right" protesters:

“The government cannot revoke or deny a permit based on the viewpoint of the demonstrators. Period,” the organization wrote on Monday.

Meanwhile, check out this shouty video of shouty students at Evergreen State having a temper tantrum.

Somebody videoed the temper tantrum, and it went viral, and so now the shouty students are all butthurt:

“We demand that the video created for Day of Absence and Day of Presence that was stolen by white supremacists and edited to expose and ridicule the students and staff be taken down by the administration by this Friday.”

Uh, kids? You don't need white supremacist film editors to help you look bad. Just sayin'.

Thanks to JJ Sefton's morning news dump for the shouty link.
