A disturbing video from the 10th anniversary of 9/11 shows a man being arrested for simply speaking out on the streets of New York City. Not speaking inside the tightly controlled pit where only those with media credentials were permitted for the event, but in the neighboring blocks of downtown Manhattan on public streets.
While some in the crowd tried to hush the man who was speaking loudly, but calmly, “When will we be allowed to know the truth about 9/11?,” a “rookie cop” decided to arrest him instead. Apparently he determined that free speech protected under the 1st amendment didn’t apply and that a ‘public disturbance’ had taken place. However, police merely held back an angry man shouting in his face ‘You’re not f***** welcome’ who was far more disruptive, while isolating and cuffing the outspoken truther.
Clearly, free speech is meant to protect unpopular speech, not just statements that the crowd approves of.
We Are Change founder and perennial activist Luke Rudkowski discussed his outrage at the incident today during an appearance on the Alex Jones Show, illustrating the larger blackout on messages contrary to the official story during the anniversary events. Bag searches took place while several blocks were barricaded to public. Rudkowski further reported that those wearing 9/11 truth shirts were turned away from the ground zero area and groups of first responders, who’d planned to demonstrate, were not allowed to gather together. Whatever your position on 9/11, this is just wrong.
