The First Amendment states that “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.”
As of the 2005–2007 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, White Americans made up 52.7% of Little Rock’s population; of which 49.4% were non-Hispanic Whites, down from 74.1% in 1970. In the ten years since, the White percentage of Little Rock has declined by a further five percent, and decreases daily. The city is currently undergoing a crisis of violent crime, edging up on fifty homicides so far this year: over twice last year’s startling murder rate. Almost all of the perpetrators of these crimes have been black or Hispanic.
Anti-White Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola, pandering to his nonWhite constituents and the Jews who influence and control the media and establishment, is now partnering with the Jewish ADL to limit the first amendment rights of Arkansans as a whole to exercise their first amendment protected freedom of speech and the right to assemble.
…”The fact that these hate groups have gotten so vocal and so public is disturbing,” Stodola said, “and I think that’s why it is very important for people like myself to speak out loudly against that.”
Stodola signed an agreement, put together by the Anti-Defamation League and the United States Conference of Mayors, to combat any form of hate in America.”
“If we have to restrict people to certain areas, we will do that,” he explained. “Certainly they have a right to demonstrate, they have a right to speak, but as long as we’re not affecting the content, we can regulate time, place, and manner and we will do that to the best of our ability to make sure that we keep the public safe.
Billy Roper, the leader of the ShieldWall Network which often holds political protests and rallies throughout Arkansas, including in Little Rock, took action against the Mayor’s assault on the first amendment by immediately contacting the American Civil Liberties Union. Following a phone call to their Little Rock office voicing his concerns, Roper filed a formal request with the Arkansas ACLU, which states in part “Please publicly state that arbitrarily limiting the time, place, and duration of legal and peaceful protests is unConstitutional, and ask the Mayor to remove his signature from the anti-first amendment agreement, or qualify it by clarifying that he will not attempt to limit peaceful exercise of the first amendment in this underhanded way.”
The ACLU has not yet announced whether they will file an injunction in court against the Mayor over his stated intention, or his signing of the ADL directive.
