Town Moves To Ban Free Speech & Freedom of Assembly in Private Homes, Group Meetings

The following article has been republished with permission from The Intel Hub.

A small Arkansas town of 850 is attempting to ban groups from meeting to talk about the city without first getting permission from the city itself.

In a move reminiscent of Nazi Germany, the Gould, Arkansas City Council has moved to ban all groups from discussing the city, even in their own home!

Mayor Earnest Nas, in strong statements supporting the peoples constitutional rights, said he is willing to go to court to stop this plan.

“This is America and even though this is Gould, Arkansas, this is still part of America. And in America, you can’t just vote and violate peoples constitutional rights,” said Nash.

This ordinance would effectively ban citizens from talking about the city at the dinner table, boy scout meetings, and book clubs. In fact, the ordinance is so Orwellian that the interview that the local Fox affiliate did with the mayor would actually be considered illegal under the proposed city ordinance.

A prominent lawyer looked over the ordinance and immediately deemed it unconstitutional.

John DiPippa, Dean of the Law School at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, expressed disbelief when he first read the proposed law.

“The truth is the city of Gould doesn’t have the authority to tell anyone that they have no right to petition them, no right to speak and no right to exist in their city,” DiPippa told Fox16.

If the precedent is set in Gould, Arkansas it is only a matter of time before it is proposed in a town near you.

If the city council of this town actually believes that they can legally stop citizens from talking about city issues in the privacy of their own home they have another thing coming. This is America not Nazi Germany.

      And how will this “city council of the communist regime” going to enforce this pray tell?

      Is the city council going to come to my home with pitch forks and torches?

      • Lohkai

        Under such a law, no one could even campaign for a position in the city, not publicly and not even privately, so it would effectively destroy the entire democratic process. Duh.

      sounds like a bunch a crackpots living in gould ark. i wonder how they are planning to enforce this…

      • c

        Remember back just over a year, when our present white house administration was proposing similar things nationwide. They proposed that all Americans should report anyone who said anything negative about the administration or its’ actions. They wanted names of anyone who spoke out against ObamaCare or Cap and Trade. etc. This is the far left/socialism/communism at work. This is how they think. Don’t call them liberals. They are the antithises of liberal. They believe everyone should speak, think and act just like them and will use force if necessary to get that done.

      I can’t even believe that I’m reading this!
      How on earth could the bureaucrats enforce such a Stalinistic law?

    4. Bloodyfellow

      If Americans still had the guts as they did back in the day. Say to take the Saiga 12 or the AR-10 to to the meeting and say “excuse me officer but, I don’t thing I’m going to let your arrest me to day. So Fu*k of!!!” Backed by our family and large group heavily armed friends and neighbors. I really believe these liberal tards would stay under their f*%king rocks! as they should…I prefer their rocks to be their tombstones.

      Sounds like council needs replaced. Give the arrogant basta*ds a taste of unemployment.

        Unemployment hell!!! they need to take a dirt nap. Along with every other big government asshole be they Democrat, Republican socialist or liberal.

          Spot on!

          Also, all LEO’s are going to have to think long & hard about the decision they are all going to be faced with real soon: Do they follow clearly unconstitutional orders or do they tell their “superiors” to Obama off!

      • BJ

        they need and deserve more than just replaced, flogged in the public square and then imprisoned and fined sounds more appropriate

    8. cshellz

      hmm, I wonder if they will have their own private SWAT team to enforce this. If the department of Education gets one then why shouldn’t everybody? lmao 😉

    9. Fed Up

      What a pointless waste of time for these people to actually get together to come up with this level of ridiculousnes.

    10. Survivor in waiting

      The saddest thing about this whole article is that in the next election these council men and women will most likely be re-elected. Just because they have a nice smile and the know how to kiss babies, and the asses of the sheep that suckle at the government tit for their exsistance.

      But in the short term Im still investing in rope futures, bigtime. I think it has the possibility of a big payoff in the next few years. Better than oil, silver or even gold.

      The city council is definately scared, but you have’nt seen the horror in their eyes, yet. That comes when the whole economy around them collapses and the sheep down there will start demanding answers. Some with rope, torches, tar and feathers.

      Personal note: tar and feathers catch fire fairly quik when torches get too close to them.

      Step 1, Take said city counsel and put on plane.
      Step 2, Fly plane to Iran and drop city counsel there.
      Step 3, Fly back refuel plane and wait for more idiots to load on plane.

      A revolution starts with defiance, no matter the cost. The problem is that most people have been conditioned to respect the rule of law, even if it means their rights are being abused: You can only defile the Constitution so many times before enough people get fed up.
      Looks like every day someone is flicking the Zippo to light the fuse on the powder keg.

      • Gods Creation

        “The problem is that most people have been conditioned to respect the rule of law,”

        I believe the problem is that the people have been conditioned to accept corp regulations as the Law. The rule of law is fine, but that is not what is going on.

    13. Griz

      Most people don’t understand our constitution went by the wayside in the 30’s. Washington knows this, you can tell by their actions. It’s that the people were not told about it, but our congressman show everbody this is true everyday. Wakeup America!

    14. Twitteringtwitts

      Sounds like Gould, Ark.might be an experimental base for all kinds of orwellian plans. They usually try out these little social experiments first on little hick towns. Then they expand to more populated cities.

    15. Curtis

      And can you believe … there are cops who will actually enforce this.

      • Torque

        It’s nothing personal. They have a paycheck to earn and pay for baby’s new shoes and bills like the next guy. Besides, isn’t the saying; “if you donothing wrong, what so you have to hide?” fitting?

        Blech, feeling ill since actually posting that…

    16. sam

      wow, no mention of the race of the city council by the posters in this section compared with the overt racist talk over in the atlanta cheating scandal section. i guess when people whose skin is the same color as you do something that is completely wrong, it’s not worth mentioning their skin color.


      • Cyber_Samurai

        Skin color isn’t really worth mentioning anywhere unless it has something relevant to do with the issue at hand. The whole “race card” thing is just another divider of the people. And, forgive my racist-sounding rant, but black people fall for it nearly every time. There have been legitimate racial issues in the past, but, now, it’s being kept alive to keep the turmoil up. Who’s keeping it up? Blacks and elites. Think about it. Who do you see stirring the race pot? Black elites and the people following them. What white person really commits racially motivated injustices? White elites. It’s not your average joe on the street. Rarely, and then, usually because he’s had the race issue shoved down his throat ’til he’s sick of it. That’s how it is in the South right now. We don’t really care what color your skin is. You got a few backwoods hicks who still hold on to racial hatred, but for the most part, they are a tiny minority. Most whites get along fine with blacks. Often, the blacks are a little less trusting of whites, bu that’s because the black leaders (elites) keep fomenting the racial distrust.

        whew! sorry just sick of the race thang! Time to put it to rest!

        • sam

          good lord, you couldn’t have proven my point any better if you had actually tried.

      • Mr. Blutarsky

        Now that you bring it up Sam, there is a recurring theme here in article after article. Funny, I notice it in my hometown newspaper too. Again. I’m just stating FACTS.

        Get the racial chip off your shoulder. And instead of defending your brothers & sisters, why don’t you reach out & try to help them improve their lives & their situation?

        No free passes. This is the United States of America. Everyone has an opportunity to succeed.

        • sam

          i’m white. your thinly veiled bigoted “brothers and sisters” statement again belies your inability to look at a person and seen anything but their skin color. you apparently ASS-u-ME that if anyone calls out others’ racism then they must be black; as if no self-respecting white man would possibly go against his own kind.

    17. MadMarkie

      My very profound daddy always said; “Son, you’ll be OK in this lifetime as long as you remember this one very simple and fundamental fact of life.” “There’s more horse’s-asses in this world than there are horses!” “Don’t matter what color the horse is either.”

      He spent a portion of his life as an Infantry Company Commander engaged in combat. From those days he said; “There ain’t no color in a foxhole; no black and no white.” “There’s just men, actually, usually mostly no more than boys, some good and some bad, all scared and praying to live through the night and once again see the next morning’s sunrise.” “But I never saw any racial shit there in a foxhole.”

      All this racial crap is the ‘game’ that the elites and TPTB have literal ‘wet-dreams’ thinking about. The one where we, the poor/lower middle class citizens of the United States, are playing THEIR ‘game’ with one another based upon the color of our skin. If they can get us fighting amongst ourselves and killing each other because of differences in our skin pigmentation ………. then they are able to save the time, effort and expense of having to kill us themselves.

      Please don’t underestimate the intelligence of the elites. They have been playing us off, one against the other, very successfully, for longer than any of us have been alive.

      Let’s all please annoy the hell out of TPTB and NOT play their ‘game’.

      God Bless & the best to you and your families.

      • greaseman

        You are very right in what you say. Unfortunately, the ruling elites need to play everyone against each other to keep the pot stirred. Unless you’re rich, you’re going down, right along with the rest of society. Some, because of preps might make it through, but the elites are depending on the masses to kill off each other to save them the trouble. If enough people wake up, there might be a chance to get those greedy bastards, and make them pay. We’ll see.

    18. SSPXER

      So, they send out a probe in an obscure shithole of a town to test the reaction, hoping to fly under the radar.

      Well, we caught them!

      The method is the same agit prop used to normalize pot, homo-marriage and sodomites generally, abortion, and every other depravity.

      But it gives us a long-term glimpse of what is being planned.

      • sam

        dude, this ain’t some test-flight by the big boys, this is small town authoritarianism. same as white citizens’ councils.

        you fail to see the similarity between speech, pot, and sex, then you fail libertarianism 101. all three are similar in that it doesn’t matter what the government thinks about them because they are none of the governments’ business. they are all beyond the natural right of control of any government. the government should not control what comes out of ones’ mouth, what goes into ones’ body, or what one does with their body.

        but again, you are an example of another douchebag who wears american flag clothing and spouts off about freedom, but fails to see that their actions encourage the destruction of civil liberties and tyranny in general. the only civil liberties you care about are your own.

          I didn’t take your test pill sam. We didn’t ask, so don’t tell.

    19. Greg Zotta

      The First Amendment states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” It is a RIGHT, affirmed in the Constitution that we have freedom of speech and the right to peaceably assemble. It is not given to us by some Government bureaucrat. It specifically was meant to protect POLITICAL speech. Who are these FOOLS/Statists to propose such an ordinance. Maybe a recall petition is in order. If not then hopefully, the Citizens of that town will fire the FOOLS in the next election.
