We Can’t Dance If We Wan’t To

Dancing is now not only a crime in certain parts of the country but you’re subject to being body slammed and held down by your throat even if you’re not actively resisting. What ever happened to freedom of expression?
First Amendment:
The relevant portion of the First Amendment, passed in 1791, reads “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble….”
Symbolic Speech:
The expression of ideas which involves only action and not words is considered “symbolic” speech and, while covered under the First Amendment, is treated somewhat differently than are other forms of expression.
Thank God some citizens did not take this lying down, and rallied together for a protest.
It’s inspiring to see people not lay down and take a bogus law and peacefully protest something without violence.
