US First Amendment Challanged by Political Correctness

chuck1

USA  Bill of Rights Amendment I:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievance

One of the things that makes America strong is our Bill of Rights. Freedom of Speech, the Right to Bear Arms, the protection against Illegal Search and Seizures, these rights among others make our country united and free from dictatorship. But how free are we when hypocrisy chimes in? Hypocrisy from organized groups who challenge our Freedom of Speech constantly because what we might say could offend them or hurt their precious feelings. They still get to say whatever they want to, and Get Away With It! We’re not allowed to challenge their beliefs or remarks? So much for Freedom of Speech.

What this website tries to do, or what I try to do, is release information to the best of my knowledge about my personal UFO/Paranormal related investigations. My comments, my opinions, my theories are all protected by our First Amendment which includes the Freedom of Speech. Without this protection I wouldn’t be able to inform my readers about all the interesting things that are happening in our own backyard. Watch your back, because there are things happening in your own back yard too!

My Freedom of Speech when talking and writing about my investigations is constantly challenged by skeptics, de-bukners, and religious fanatics. The skeptics can’t understand, the de-bunkers won’t understand, and the religious fanatics just call you a liar and say you’ll burn in Hell for what you say or believe. But if that’s not enough to deal with, I also have to deal with over-exaggerated Political Correctness crap popping up from time to time.

Wikipedia:Political correctness (adjectivally, politically correct; both forms commonly abbreviated to PC) is a term that refers to language, ideas, or policies that address perceived or actual discrimination against or alienation of politically, socially or economically disadvantaged groups. The term usually implies that these social considerations are excessive or of a purely “political” nature. These groups most prominently include those defined by gender, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation and disability.

If I make a comment that the Grey Aliens are not religious and don’t know or don’t care about a God or a Son of God named Jesus, then I would probably offend a lot of people. The truth is, we don’t know and any story about the Greys being religious or even Christian is a product of an interpretation by an abductee which is generally based on their own personal up-bringing. We really won’t know until we ask them.

What if the Greys are homosexuals or bi-sexual? I’ve never heard of a female Grey, we just assume they’re all males or clones that may or may not have gentiles. Still, we can’t rule out the unknown, once again we won’t know until we ask them. If I say all Greys are males, then I’m a sexist. If I say all Greys are the product of cloning and have no souls, then I might be considered anti-religious. If I say the Greys genitals are larger than mine, then I’m just lying, either way, I would be offending someone or some organization.

The problem with Political Correctness is in fact a direct violation of our Freedom of Speech. Many organizations, lawyers and politicians have drawn a very fine line between the two, simply to benefit their own beliefs or strengthen their pocket books. What they don’t realize or care to realize is, “They are the discriminators”. They’re discriminating others from voicing their opinions based on personal or religious values. There’s a big difference between saying, “I don’t like people who wear black leather jackets” to “People who wear black leather jackets should be shot”. The first is voicing an opinion based on Freedom of Speech, the second is obviously being Politically In-Correct and against the law. The fact is, any Harley rider will protect themselves from discrimination or harm, but every Harley rider I know will also protect the right of Freedom of Speech.

There is no fine line between Freedom of Speech and being Politically Correct. If one organization refers to themselves as “bikers”, then other people should be able to refer to them as “bikers” as well. They are practicing their Freedom of Speech by calling themselves bikers, we are practicing our freedom of speech by calling them bikers too! They shouldn’t be allowed to come back and cry “discrimination” because we called them bikers and say we’re the ones who are Politically Incorrect. Do you see where I’m going with this?

I believe extraterrestrials are visiting this planet. I will say anything I want to justify my beliefs. If I offend anyone, I don’t really care. They’re my beliefs, my opinions and I’m practicing my First Amendment Rights. If anyone is offended by what I say, then Don’t Listen to Me, Don’t Visit My Website, and Don’t Come To My Lectures. You are not the center of this world let alone this universe and you are not God, so quit trying to force your beliefs or your organizations beliefs, down everyone’s throats. Eventually it will back-lash on you and you’ll have no one to blame but yourselves.

(FYI) I personally don’t agree with Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson’s recent remarks, but….. I’ll be the first to protect his First Amendment right to express his beliefs, If I didn’t, then I wouldn’t be following the path set by our forefathers.

UFO Journal Issue: “UFO Investigator”

Vol. II, No. 12, September-October 1964
(National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena,
Washington, D.C.) (ufodocarchive.org)

The issue contains the articles, “ ‘UFO Evidence’ Response Mounts,” “IMPRESSIVE EVIDENCE IN N.J. LANDING CASE,” “The Big Job Is Still Ahead,” “SCIENTIST SUPPORTS UFO INQUIRY,” “Socorro Analysis,” “UFO SIGHTING WAVE PERSISTS,” “NEW YORK & MONTANA FLURRIES” and “Close-Range Sightings Near Boston”:


Quote from the article, “The Big Job Is Still Ahead”:
“Since the AF cannot disprove our documented proof of UFO reality and censorship, it is again trying to discredit NICAP. The following official reply to questions about the NICAP Report shows how the AF UFO spokesman, Maj. Maston M. Jacks, avoids discussing our documented evidence:

‘The AF feels that to attach undue significance to the UFO phenomena would only encourage private UFO organizations and provide grist for their claims and contentions.’

Major Jacks’ letter (copy at NICAP) also shows how the AF is trying to hide the powerful, unsolved AF cases cited by NICAP:

‘The unidentified reports,’ states the AF spokesman, ‘remain active until they are identified and at that time they are removed from the unknown category.’ ”

“Black Ops Conspiracy” Video

Derrel Sims and Steven Jones find a radioactive circle at Bradshaw Ranch in Sedona, Arizona.

Okay, it’s been a couple of days now, and I have to get something off my chest. This goes out to my teammate Mike Bara. Buddy, were you really making fun of me and Steven for our [insert mocking voice] “radioactive circle”?

I do have a few super powers, but making the Geiger counter go off in a circular pattern, well, that’s not one of them. While you were busy talking Maureen out of trespassing on government land, Steven and I were turning up evidence of high strangeness. Just sayin’!  Your shades look pretty cool in the publicity photos, though! [GRINS]

Derrel explains “black ops” to co-star Steven Jones on “Uncovering Aliens: Black Ops Conspiracy,” Animal Planet

Okay, now to the fun stuff: Special thanks to whomever uploaded a video of the Uncovering Aliens sneak peak of the episode “Black Ops Conspiracy.” Many folks I know only stream, so this is their chance to see the team in action. Here’s the YouTube link

The post “Black Ops Conspiracy” Video appeared first on Derrel Sims.
