Quote of the day, Nov. 26

Dwight Macdonald, on pacifism

“Pacifism, to me, is primarily a way of actively struggling against injustice and inhumanity; My kind of pacifism may be called ‘non-violent resistance.'”

    FIRST AMENDMENT ATTACK UPON ARIZONA HARASSMENT STATUTE

    Scott Huminski v. City of Surprise, Arizona (13-7504)

    In a filing received by the U.S. Supreme Court, government is portrayed fervently defending a state criminal harassment statute that makes any speech contrary to the government’s goals a crime under. AZ Rev. Stat. § 13-2921 (criminal harassment)

    Speech that tends to “alarm, annoy or harass” anyone, including government officials and police, is a crime in Arizona. Silencing dissent is the hallmark of a police state.

    Petition for Writ of Certiorari here…

    No surprise that this statute exists in Arizona. Under the patently unconstitutionally vague and overbroad harassment statute, this Supreme Court litigation is a crime as is this article when read by a resident of Arizona, say … Sheriff Joe Arpaio. No doubt that the litigation and this article tends to “annoy” the Sheriff and like-minded residents of Arizona.
