Security Goon Crushes Free Speech: ‘This Ain’t America No More’

In a damning indictment of how the First Amendment has been eviscerated, footage from a recent town hall event shows a school security officer threatening a protester with arrest for holding up an anti-Obama sign while declaring that America has ceased to exist, arguing that unflattering representations of our dear leader are illegal.

Despite the fact that there were numerous other signs being displayed at the health care event in Reston, Va., security officer Wesley Cheeks Jr. ordered the protester to pull down the placard, which featured the depiction of Obama as the Joker from Batman with the words “Organizing for National Socialist Health Care – The Final Solution”.

An argument ensued before the protester declared, “This used to be America,” to which the officer responded, “It ain’t no more, OK?”

Cheeks claimed that the protester couldn’t display his sign because it included an image of Obama. Like he’s some kind of religious deity, authority figures somehow think that it is illegal to display a likeness of our dear leader that is anything but flattering.
As anyone with a basic grasp of history understands, when the authorities start oppressing people merely for ridiculing those in power, dictatorship and tyranny soon follows.

“Sir, leave the picture down,” the officer said. “If you put the picture back up, you’ll be charged with trespassing.”

The officer also ascribes upon himself the power to interpret and invent laws, growling, “If I told you once to take it down and you put it back up, I can charge you with whatever I want to charge you with.”

Cheeks’ brazen contempt for the oath he swore to protect and defend the Constitution is laid bare as he openly trashes everything America stands for and claims that in his eyes the country and by extension the bill of rights itself no longer exists.

This should act as a wake up call to illustrate the shocking reversal of the role of police and security officers from peace officers to political enforcers for the corrupt state.

Officer Cheeks is a member of the Fairfax County Public Schools’ trained School Security Officer team (e mail them), who have refused to comment on the story until their office opens again -free-speech-this-ain%e2%80%99t-america-no-more/

Sounds to me like a few "Somebodies" need to take Mr. Cheeks out back and give him an in-depth lesson on freedom of expression. This guy had better be out of job by 3:00PM today!!!

Edited to add: That man and woman in the video... THEY are the very definition of "Worthless eaters"
How blindly stupid and ignorant of them. Didn't they kind of have that vacant "Jim Jones" look about them?

He's doing his job like everyone else.
My guess is his bosses told him to get rid of the sign carrying guy. He knows if he refuses he will possibly loose his job and not be able to feed his family.
