Good News: Federal Appeals Court Upholds Freedom of Speech by Invalidating Dearborn’s Sharia Compliant Ban on Christians

As we have previously documented HERE and HERE, Dearbornistan has a long track record of arresting Christians for the heinous crime of merely talking about their faith during Islamic gatherings.

Since Muzzies, the local police, and the corrupt politicians in Dearbornistan have little respect for the U.S. Constitution, this Federal Appeals Court ruling will have more of an impact upon them.  However, we won’t know for sure until the middle of June when the next Arab festival is to be held in Dearbornistan. I have it on good authority that several Christian groups plan to flood the event and test the waters.

Stay tuned…

Court throws out Dearborn leaflet ban
City violated man’s free-speech rights at festival, ruling says

Detroit— A federal appeals court Thursday invalidated a leafleting ban in Dearborn, ruling the city violated a man’s free-speech rights when he was blocked from trying to convert Muslims to Christianity.

The 2-1 decision by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sends the case back to federal court in Detroit, where the city and Police Chief Ronald Haddad could be held liable for damages.

George Saieg, a Christian Arab-American from California, sued Dearborn for being prevented in 2009 from handing out literature at the annual Arab International Festival on Warren Avenue. The festival will be held again June 17-19.

The appeals court said the city’s ban is not reasonable and that the city and Haddad violated Saieg’s First Amendment right to freedom of speech.

In a statement, Mayor John B. O’Reilly, Jr. said: “Since the festival chose to keep the sidewalks open for other business not related to the festival, the court ruled that the sidewalks had to be available for the material distribution,” he said.

“It is a narrow opinion, and one we will abide by.”

    Since the muzzies also propigate islam and jihad at that festival why cant non muslims propigate thier own religions and ideology without arrest, harrasment and other acts that are used by moslems in thier home countries.

    After all Dearborn is part of the USA and if moslems and thier allies can freely disribute thier ideals so can non muslims.

    Otherwise shut down the festival.

    We need an evaluation of all the great stuff the muslims have brought to America such as the tsa and strip searches at the airport, a guvmint that spies on average ordinary people, etc etc. We have other groups of immigrants to compare muslims with and we should do it. Remember, muslims have not been here very long, perhaps 35/40 years but the damage they have caused is unprecedented. Muslims are responsible for the country we have today and islam dominates our foreign policy to the point of dereliction towards all other foreign policy issues. Of course their political helpers have been more than willing to ruin our country by bringing in large numbers of treacherous treasonous muslims while at the same time funding the international jihad. In a sane world these pols would be ion a terrorist watch list instead of your gramma or young niece.

    I recall very vividly a comment on video by security at one of those festivals, “Your freedom of speech means nothing here.”

    I guess US Constitutional law means nothing to a certain segment of muslims – chiefly those who wish to see it replaced with sharia while American kaffirs are taken as slaves.

      We can learn a lot about where we are heading from across the pond. Gates of Vienna, Our Muslim Troubles. First of a series and compelling. The third installment is posted today.

      The Wilder’s inquisition is another good and ongoing example of westerners trying to cater to muslim sensibilities. Tolerance of the intolerant, insanity.
