Free Speech Zone: Government Kills First Amendment in Nevada Builds Cage for Protestors

Back in 2012 we reported on a bill signed by President Obama, H.R. 347, which gave the federal government the ability to ignore the constitution, suspend free speech, and setup so-called FREE SPEECH ZONES. While most Americans completely ignored what was going on, choosing instead to focus on what celebrity was sleeping with whom this week, the feds moved to use their newly found power to kill your right to petition the government and your right to assemble.

Since 2012, the feds have used this legislation to set up “Free Speech Zones” during a number of high-profile events including President Obama’s inauguration. Anyone caught trying to exercise their first amendment rights outside of these so-called free speech zones could be arrested and face felony charges – punishable by up to a year in jail.

In the latest abuse of power, which again has gone completely unnoticed and unreported by the mainstream media, the Federal government has suspended free speech near Bunkerville, Nevada to hide their illegal actions as they raid a local ranchers land.

First Amendment Area in Nevada

Yesterday, we reported on the story of Cliven Bundy, a local Nevada Rancher whose land is now surrounded by government snipers because he refused to pay the BLM fees to use his own land. As a result of the standoff, some local Nevadans started to make their way towards the Bundy ranch to support Bundy and make their voices heard. Unfortunately, that became impossible as the Federal Government blocked access to the Gold Butte area near Bunkerville.

Even more appalling, is the fact that they suspended free speech in the area, and actually fenced off an area miles away from town that they called a “FIRST AMENDMENT ZONE.” Yes, you heard that right. Your government actually suspended free speech and then penned off an area where they intended to corral American Citizens who wanted to exercise their first amendment rights.

I want you to take a good look at this picture again. Notice that they have these signs printed and ready to go. This is not a onetime deal; this government has declared the Constitution dead and has replaced your First Amendment rights with a Free Speech Cage. At any time and in any place they can declare your rights to be invalid, and nobody seems to care.

      oh by the way… I’ve read H.R.437.. I don’t think this classifies as a matter of national significance, so they are in violation of the 1st amendment and have no real legal ground to stand on to even create the sanctioned off area or force people to go away.

      however, there is the government business and official functions, so as long as they don’t stand in the way, you can yell as much as you want as close as you want.. provided it does not directly interfere with the government function of armed robbery.

      As an old Army buddy, who teaches History, has told me several times; Americans are basically isolationists. This means they are only concerned on what goes on in their lives: job, recreation, sports, and so forth. Anything else, they tune out. So far as I know, the story mentioned hasn’t been on the national media yet.

    I don’t have a TV, I gave it away five years ago as I thought that all that reality show crap was not worth the money. Now after the government has quietly passed the laws to rule us as they wish we should all just bend over and kiss our asses goodbye. We ain’t in Kansas no more Toto.

    Found on Wikipedia …. seems these zones have been around a long time.

    “Critics suggest that such zones are “Orwellian”, and that authorities use them in a heavy-handed manner to censor protesters by putting them literally out of sight of the mass media, hence the public, as well as visiting dignitaries.

    “Free speech zones (also known as First Amendment zones, free speech cages, and protest zones) are areas set aside in public places for political activists to exercise their right of free speech in the United States. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution states that “Congress shall make no law… abridging… the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” The existence of free speech zones is based on U.S. court decisions stipulating that the government may regulate the time, place, and manner—but not content—of expression. A free speech zone is more restrictive than an exclusion zone.”

    What’s really funny is all this stuff you guys are whining about (heavily armed cops, free speech zones, etc.) were all in use during the anti-globalization protests, WTO protests, Anti-Nuclear Protests, G-7/8 protests, Occupy Wall Street Protests, etc. But where was all your outrage? Right, because it was a bunch of hippies and no-good pinko leftists. Well, now its your turn. Good luck because you are going to need it. When you guys are tired of picking up the pieces of your dead buddies off the ground, all your leadership convicted of bogus charges rotting in jail, your membership thoroughly infiltrated by FBI agents, your phone records and conversations recorded, and, this is the best part, the discovery years later how many of your “friends” were actually on the FBI payroll. Guys, look up COINTEL-PRO (this for example:http://vault.fbi.gov/cointel-pro)and see what you up against. It will not end well. Any thoughts to the contrary is sheer fantasy and a pipe dream.

      As far as I am aware, the radio station I listen to spoke of this sectioning off before any Occupy stuff happened and the reporters were more in the ex-Conservative camp. From my perspective, it seems that the Conservatives I know, want less government and have been running that ticket for awhile. They tend to be the solid middle class workers who are being overtaxed without being represented and because of that, they are trying to return to the original Constitution and a government that is not into everyone’s private lives. It seems that Liberals fit into two categories, ultra rich and very poor. It seems that the poor envy the rich, vote in their guy who will tax away for social programs that do not actually fix the problems for those in need, and then the ultra rich using loopholes, heavily tax the middle class to support their agendas. Now does this picture differ from yours?
