The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum kicked out a dozen Catholic high school students and their chaperones for wearing beanies inscribed with pro-life messages.
Just to be clear, these were not outrageous messages. This was one of those hats that groups wear so they can spot one another in a crowd. It’s a safety thing. Us pro-lifers don’t like losing children. We be crazy like that.
On Jan. 20, students and chaperones from Our Lady of the Rosary School based out of Greenville, South Carolina, traveled to Washington, D.C., for the annual National March for Life. The group members were all wearing matching blue beanies with the words “Rosary PRO-LIFE.”
The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), representing the parents of some of the students involved, alleged that the museum staff mocked the students, hurled expletives and claimed the museum was a “neutral zone” where political or religious messages were not allowed.
This is clearly an infringement of free speech. But the left only wants speech it approves of.
To be clear, you might recall the story where a man was kicked out of the Mall of America for wearing a “Jesus Saves” t-shirt. They said it offended some people.
If hate speech is defined as violence and they decide what hate speech is, then they make the rules as to what can be said and who can say it. And there will be NO Jesus talk! Do you understand?
Jesus is the new secondhand smoke. Feel free to partake of the Jesus on your own but don’t spread it in public.

The Smithsonian, a taxpayer-funded institution which enjoys a stipend of millions of dollars annually from the Federal Government, denied the Constitutional right of free speech to American Catholic school students – and discriminated against them by targeting them and singling them out for exclusion. Sounds like a mighty case for the courts. I hope the parents of the school children look up Nick Sandmann’s lawyer.
