Afton Limits Political Speech, No One Seems to Care

24 Jun

In a nod to Minnesota Nice, Afton has imposed a regulation limiting political parade groups to 15-persons.  While the regulation has no enforcement mechanism, it does seem to limit political speech. In a noble skirting of  the issue Betty McCullom’s office stated “We just abide by whatever the regulations are.  We just want to cooperate with whatever the community sets forth, so no, it’s not a problem.” Which I believe is a paraphrase of “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
