Free Speech For Me, Not For Thee!

Source: christiannewswire
TEMECULA, Calif., Jan. 11 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Pro-Family Law Center, representing The Minuteman Project and Marvin Stewart, Director of Community Relations, filed a lawsuit today against Compton Community College and its Board of Trustees for alleged discriminatory acts based on protected First Amendment activity.

The complaint alleges that Compton Community College, through its Board of Trustees, denied The Minuteman Project equal access to the use of their school facilities based on the content of the speech intended to be engaged in by The Minuteman Project. According to the complaint, The Minuteman Project wanted to conduct a Town Hall Meeting before the November elections to discuss the public issue of illegal immigration and the significant impact it has on the City of Compton and the surrounding cities.

After properly submitting an application, used by the general public, for the use of Compton Community College's gym on July 3, 2006, Jamillah Moore, Interim Superintendent/President of Compton Community College, denied The Minuteman Project's application. The purported reason for the denial was that Compton Community College does not authorize nor permit the use of its facilities by specific special interest or advocacy groups, nor for the advancement of specific candidates for public office.

After the denial of The Minuteman Project's application, it was discovered that Compton Community College has granted the use of its facilities to various special interest and/or advocacy groups in the past.
So who were these special interest groups which the Minutemen were so much more horribler than?
According to various documents Compton Community College was required to disclose pursuant to The Minuteman Project's Public Records Act request, Compton Community College's facilities have been used by/for (1) The Farrakan Event, (2) The Multi-cultural Youth Peace Summit/Registration Drive, and (3) The Black Student Union and Muhammad's Mosque Peacemakers.
Heh! Hoist by their own petard. I love it.

I'll give the final word to noted Leftist thinker and Peace studies scholar Cynthia McKinney...
