Public High School Enforces Sick New Ban So Outraged Students Call In The Feds

Published

on

A group on Texas High School cheerleaders have won a court case in the Texas Supreme Court to continue to display Bible verses on their banners.

Their 6-year saga began when in 2012 the school superintendent received a complaint from the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation and as a result, the school district ordered the team to stop displaying the Bible quotes immediately. So the cheerleaders took matters into their own hands and did what all of us Americans should be doing when our First Amendment right to free speech is being trampled on. They took the fight all the way to the Texas Supreme Court.

And they won. In January of 2016, the Texas Supreme Court unanimously voted in favor of the cheerleaders, but the battle didn’t end there. The liberal activists took the case all the way to the Liberal 9th circuit court of appeals, where in September of 2017, they actually backed the Texas Supreme Court’s decision. The normally far left wing liberal appeals court ruled the cheerleaders’ rights to display Bible quotes was “private speech” and because of this, it should continue without issue.

Here is more via The Dallas News:

“Texas cheerleaders can display Bible verses at high school football games, a state appeals court ruled Thursday.

The Ninth Court of Appeals sided with students from Kountze High School, who sued after the district barred Christian messages from cheer banners at football games. The cheerleaders’ choice to display Bible verses is protected as “private speech,” the appeals court ruled.

“We are pleased that once again religious liberty is vindicated and that cheerleaders across the state of Texas have the right to have religious messages on banners at high school football games,” Hiram Sasser, general counsel of the Plano-based conservative nonprofit law firm First Liberty, wrote in a news release. “No school district should be able to censor, ban, or claim ownership of the private religious speech of its students.”

Since their legal fight began in 2012, the Kountze cheerleaders have received widespread support from Texas’ top Republicans, including Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, Attorney General Ken Paxton and Gov. Greg Abbott.

The cheerleaders were previously defended by James Ho, whom President Donald Trump nominated to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday, and First Assistant Attorney General Jeff Mateer, who has come under fire after videos surfaced of him describing transgender children as evidence of “Satan’s plan” and warning that same-sex marriage would lead to polygamy and bestiality.

Mateer, who left First Liberty in 2016 to join the office of the attorney general, was also nominated to the federal bench this month.

The case dates back five years, when district officials banned cheerleaders in the southeast Texas school district from displaying banners with Christian themes. The move was made after the Freedom From Religion Foundation, a nonprofit that advocates for the separation of church and state, complained the banners resulted in a publicly-funded school district endorsing a specific religion.

District officials later decided to allow the banners, but retained the ability to control their content.

A district court judge sided with the cheerleaders in 2013. But the appeals court soon after said their lawsuit was moot due to the district’s policy change. Eventually, the case was kicked up to the Texas Supreme Court, which remanded it back to the appeals court last year.

The court’s ruling this week found that since cheerleading is not related to the “pedagogical concerns” of the district, the banners did not amount to “government speech.”

“Given the nature of the expressive activity — a hand-drawn, playful paper banner, displayed by cheerleaders engaged in an extra-curricular activity, only momentarily before the football team runs through the banner — it is highly unlikely that the banner would appear to those in attendance at the game to contain a message endorsed by the school,” the court wrote. “Kountze ISD has not raised substantial disruption of or material interference with school activities as a concern. Kountze ISD has not pleaded or offered any evidence of disruption or interference.

“Therefore, we conclude that the Cheerleaders’ speech expressed on the run-through banners is best characterized as the pure private speech of the students.”

Tom Brandt, attorney for Kountze ISD, told The Dallas Morning News that his clients had not yet determined their next steps in the case. The district could decide to appeal once again to the Texas Supreme Court.”

What these cheerleaders did should come as a lesson to all us freedom loving Americans. When the left attacks our Freedom of Speech we should never back down and cower. When we give in the left wins and let’s face it, when we on the right give in that’s the only way the left is able to win since their ideas pretty much stink and are wrong for America in every sense of the word.

These cheerleaders are heroes in every sense of the word and they have done more to support the Conservative cause than any party has done in ages. They stood up for all our freedoms and they won, even in the 9th circuit. That’s Historic!

Emmys Get Demolished For Disturbing Message They Sent Many People Missed!

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by The Daily Wire:

The 2018 Emmys went about how everyone expected: Lots of left-wing messaging, lots of self-congratulation, less entertainment, and fewer viewers. But what is a little unexpected is just how strong the blowback from even those who lean left has been.

Among the strong critics of the show is the Daily Beast’s Kevin Fallon, who wrote a blistering response to the “cringe-worthy, tone-deaf embarrassment” of an awards ceremony, which was particularly egregious in its “diversity” pandering.

In his brutal take on the Emmys “disaster,” Fallon mocked the Chairman of the Television Academy Hayma Washington coming on stage near the end of the show to declare, “Let’s give ourselves a hand!” for the theme of the night: “This, the 70th Annual Academy Awards, features the most diverse and inclusive group of nominees ever,” as Fallon puts it.

Fallon notes that Washington having “to literally cajole the crowd to applaud itself, a rarity for this industry—underscored everything woefully misguided about this Colin Jost and Michael Che-hosted outing, perhaps the worst-produced award show since James Franco and Anne Hathaway co-hosted the Oscars.”

The worst part, he explains, was that the show “treated its progress in nomination diversity as a finish line, expecting the telecast to function as a victory lap, cheering for a job well done when it should have fired a starting gun for the work just getting started.”

The disaster of a show started off with an attempt at a joke about naively believing that the diversity problem in Hollywood had been “solved.” Here’s how Deadline describes the start of the Emmys 70th production, which it said “really showed its age”:

Starting off with SNL‘s Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson and a dead-letter routine that diversity was thriving and discrimination was “solved” in Hollywood, the back on Monday Emmys was simply too much all Lorne all the time. Despite some dance moves from nominee Ricky Martin, the first of several inevitable references to the imploded Roseanne, more SNLers and a very brief appearance by EGOT winner John Legend, the kickoff indicated that tonight’s ceremony was clearly not ready for primetime – and that was before “Weekend Update” anchors Che and Jost hit the stage.

Turns out the true joke ended up being the idea that the entertainment elites actually care about the things they spend so much time, energy, and money virtue-signaling.

After Emmy Hosts Trashed Trump & Christians, Betty White Came Out With Awesome Surprise

Celebrities have entrenched themselves in the liberal left. They use their platform to trash President Trump, Christians and any other conservative movement that gets in their way.

But it wasn’t the hosts conservative bashing that was the highlight of the night. In fact, the most amazing part of the show didn’t happen until almost the end.

The night turned in a whole new direction when a 96-year old woman took the stage.

E-News wrote:

Betty White received a standing ovation Monday night at the 2018 Emmys before her speech that collectively melted hearts around the world.

Saturday Night Live’s Kate McKinnon and Alec Baldwin—both of whom are nominees for their roles on the show—introduced White as “the greatest of all time.”

McKinnon said, “There are very few people who were around then that are still working in television today, and we are lucky to be joined by one of them tonight.”

White has won eight Emmy awards and nominated 24 times, and, according to McKinnon, “at 96-years-old she still thinks about those Emmys she didn’t win. And she’s still bitter.”

In her speech, the Golden Girls star started it off with a joke. “I’m just going to quit while I’m ahead,” she laughed.

White told an anecdote about being called the “First Lady of Television” by a passerby, but that observer later told her daughter, “She’s that old, she was the first one, way, way back.”

She said, “Little did I dream then that I would be here. It’s incredible that I’m still in this business and you are still putting up with me.”

White continued with even more jokes in her speech. She said, “It’s incredible that you can stay in a career this long and still have people put up with you. I wish they did that at home.”

She concluded, “It’s such a blessed business to be in.”

Unsurprisingly, the Twitterverse came out in full support of the actress and her accomplishments.

“I will donate organs for Betty White,” one tweet said.

Another message called White “absolutely a national treasure.”

Congratulations on all your achievements, Betty!

Outside of Betty night and a few others, the show was trash. Viewership was the lowest it had ever been in the history of the program.

FoxNews reported:

Hollywood may have laughed when Emmys host Michael Che said the only white people who thank Jesus are “Republicans and ex-crackheads,” but Tinseltown’s latest middle finger to Middle America fell flat in flyover country, and may have contributed to the telecast’s all-time low viewership.

Co-host Michael Che left many viewers of the 70th Annual Emmy Awards upset during the opening monologue with his fellow “Saturday Night Live” star Colin Jost, explaining that his mother would not be watching the show on Monday night.

“She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough,” Che said. “That’s true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.”

The joke didn’t sit well with some viewers, who took to Twitter to complain. Not only that, the show’s ratings dropped 10 percent from last year’s already-dismal numbers, setting an all-time low, according to TheWrap.

While many viewers may have changed the channel after the opening monologue, jabs at average Americans were far from over and the Jesus gag became a running theme throughout the evening.

Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that “large swaths of the American public just want to be entertained” but instead were turned into “unwilling participants” in a political rally disguised as an awards show.

“Whether it’s the NFL or the Emmys, people desperately want a break from politics. It’s amazing to me at just how tone deaf Hollywood is,” Barron said.

In the end, the Emmy’s should be thankful Betty White was part of there program otherwise it would have been a total waste.
