The White Hoodies Are Out! KKK holding march in Stephenville (Erath County) Texas

7 March 2007 at 4:02:06 PM

I've been reading about this for the last week or so but didn't write about it because who wanted to draw MORE attention to some wackos? I'm sure the KKK is coming because of that offensive Martin Luther King party held by some Tarleton students last month.  But there's an interesting free speech and right to assemble issue in this article from the Stephenville paper.

A group called "Stephenville Citizens for Peace" wants to hold a counter-demonstration downtown by the courthouse, and they're running into some flak from the local government. First, the people wanting to have it had to submit a rental application for the Cowboy Walk of Fame... which is a SIDEWALK. Before hearing back on that, the city told them they also have to ask for the street to be closed. Despite telling them they'd hear back by Monday evening, they never called the organizers back. THEN, the next day, the police chief told them they couldn't even HAVE the rally downtown, but had to be at least 2 blocks away (reminiscent of so-called *free speech* zones, isn't it?)

Carrasco and Gelski said they were “stunned” to learn of Halsell’s plan to keep them from protesting across the street from the KKK.

“It would be helpful if someone from the city would inform us of these plans,” Carrasco said. “As applicants, why were we not informed of this?”

Gelski said she rented the Cowboy Walk of Fame because she felt “it was a safe distance from the courthouse, but close enough that we could still make an impact.”

“I’m really disappointed by all of this,” Gelski said. “All we want to do is exercise our First Amendment rights.”
