Concerning "sexual assault", the Obama Administration, without consent, declared that from now on, even offensive speech can be considered sexual assault. Until May 9, sexual harassment had to be "objectively offensive", using the standard of a "reasonable person." The Administration removed those requirements. Now, according to the DOE and DOJ, you can be found guilty of sexual harassment if you SAY anything that offends someone else.
It seems the Obama Administration has decided arbitrarily to insert a new "Constitutional Right" where it does not exist - a right to not be offended.
Well, Mr Obama, Holder and the rest of you liberal tyrants - YOU and YOUR actions OFFEND ME! So maybe you should STOP offending me.
Frankly, there is, and never can be a "right to not be offended", simply because everything on the planet offends someone, somewhere. Atheists offend religious people - should we make it a crime to be an atheist? That sculpture of the Madonna covered in elephant dung offends many - should the sculptor go to prison?
This is a direct attack on the First Amendment right to free speech. Liberals seem to like free speech only when it is speech they approve of. By definition, that is the opposite of free speech.
So, according to the Obama Administration, if you ask someone for a date and they are offended by your request, you are guilty of sexual harassment.
Such restrictions on "offensive" speech attempts in the past have been rejected by the courts, simply because, as stated earlier, anyone can consider anything "offensive."
The DOE and DOJ do not want to adhere to the decision of the Supreme Court (davis v. Monroe County Board of Education, 1999) that determined the definition of harassment is "a targeted pattern of serious onlgoing discriminatory behavior". Instead, the Obama Administration, true to their practice of tyranny, have decided that harassment can be any innocent remark.
People of America, it is time to stop the dictatorial, illegal actions coming out of Washington and out of agencies run by unelected officials. It's time to kick these bums to the curb and take our country back. After all, this is supposed to be the "land of the free", but we will lose that if we do not again become "home of the brave." Stand up and be counted!
