Defending Free Speech for Everybody...

What a concept.

Michelle Malkin, brings up the case of a 12 year-old Schenectady student who was banned by her local school district from wearing a red, white, and blue necklace and bracelet she had made in honor of her uncle serving in Iraq.

Malkin snarkily wonders “if the ACLU will volunteer to defend Raven's free-speech rights, as they have in at least one case involving a student who fought to wear an anti-Bush t-shirt to school?”

I know it fits Malkin’s agenda to imply that the ACLU only defends free speech rights when those victimized are expressing a “liberal” viewpoint, but, sadly for her, the facts are biased against her. You can check here, here, here, here, and here. There are others, too.

Interestingly, Ms. Malkin, the strong advocate of free speech, does not allow comments on her site.
