Here’s a hint: it was the 9th Circuit.
Honest question: would they have said the same thing to Colin Kaepernick? Or the Browns?
Do you forfeit your private rights as a citizen just by reason of being an employee?
It seems that Bernie Sanders is not the only one who thinks so.
Isn’t that exactly the OPPOSITE of the argument everyone is making right now about Kaepernick and the Browns? That they retain their personal rights, whether they wear a uniform or not?
So what makes public servants different?
Oh right. The dishonest reading of a private letter by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptists.
So which is it? Are his Private letters written by the Finger of God, and to be treated as the Law of the Land? Or is he a disreputable bastard we are all supposed to hate because he’s an old, dead, white dude who owned slaves?
Because you can’t REALLY have it both ways. Anyway, here’s what the Ninth Circus had to say about it.
“When Kennedy kneeled and prayed on the fifty-yard line immediately after games while in view of students and parents, he spoke as a public employee, not as a private citizen, and his speech therefore was constitutionally unprotected,” the 9th Circuit wrote.
Kennedy, who served as an assistant coach at Bremerton High School from 2008-2015, was ordered to refrain from bowing his head, taking a knee or doing anything that could be perceived as praying on public school property.
To be fair – it’s not like Coach Kennedy was conducting a Billy Graham Crusade at midfield. He would simply take a knee, bow his head, thank God for a good game and 30 seconds later – he went about his business.
Maybe they could explain this?
No really, take as long as you need. We’ll wait.
Here’s hoping he’ll take it up past the Nith Circuit, to a credible court.
Which reminds me… some talk radio guys have talked about how past presidents have dealt with rogue courts.
Maybe it’s time to finally look at ways put an end to the partisan Bullsh-t of that stacked court.
And have some judges that don’t fail at nearly every lesson in this book.
