You all have probably heard about this story by now but, let me comment. The summary is-
Lorrie Heasley thought it would be 'fun' to board a Southwest Airlines plane wearing this shirt--->
While on her flight, she was asked to cover her shirt which she did [by apparently pulling an airline blanket over her]. During the flight, the cover fell off and the flight crew apparently received some complaints so, they asked her to change shirts or change flights.
"I didn't feel that I should have to change my shirt, because we live in the United States, and it's freedom of speech and it was based on the move 'The Fockers', and I didn't think it should have offended anyone." was her quote to CH4 KRNV.
Southwest rules allow the airline to deny boarding to any passenger whose clothing is offensive. But American Civil Liberties Union officials say Heasley's T-shirt is "protected" political speech under the Constitution.
Needless to say, Ms. Heasley (and the ACLU) apparently have no clue as to what the Freedom of Speech section of the 1st Amendment says or means. They don't realize that it is to protect people from BEING ARRESTED and DOES NOT give people the right to say anything they want with consquences.
Let me say that again for the slow-people and the ACLU- THE FIRST AMENDMENT PROTECTS PEOPLE FROM GOVERNMENT ARREST AND/OR CRIMINAL PROSECUTION, IT DOES NOT PREVENT NON-GOVERNMENT ENTITIES FROM REFUSING SERVICE TO YOU (you frickin morons!).
Southwest Airlines told Heasley she could take a different flight home if she changed her shirt. She refused and opted to rent a car and drive home.
"I most likely wont be flying Southwest Airlines again after this." Ms. Heasley said.
GOOD! I'll take your place on them (because I won't have to read obscenities on idiot's shirts!)
