Let me be frank: Today’s column will discuss a pending obscenity case. A woman in South Carolina is facing a jury trial for choosing to decorate her truck with an object that the local police chief believes is obscene. The mainstream media would have you believe that, because the decoration in question could be construed as representing a part of the human anatomy, this story is merely funny or weird.
However, I feel that obscenity laws are like the Federal government’s own proverbial gateway drugs: First it makes obscenity laws, then there is systemic censorship, then the Constitution is being rewritten to leave out the 1st Amendment altogether… and that’s the day we wake up in Oceania, having always been at war with Eastasia.
