I read with shock an opinion piece by Herb Brock about SB 93, our bill to make it illegal to protest at funerals, memorial services, and funeral processions. Putting aside Brock's ignorance that hateful protests have been happening in Kentucky at the funerals of our fallen heroes, would this not be the right thing to do? We live in a time when people have been courted by the ACLU, People for the American Way, NOW, and other leftist groups to protest everywhere and anywhere in the most outlandish and hateful of ways. Remember them at President Reagan's funeral procession?
Those who use free speech to attack everything that is American would tell you that this is a "fundamental right," a cornerstone of our constitutional republic, only they would most likely use the false description of democracy to describe our government. The difference is that democracy is mob rule and a constitutional republican form of government is rule by law.
