A former Colorado high school student is waging an ongoing battle with the US government and organized Jewry in court.

In what is the first real test of the Supreme Court’s spring ruling in B.L. v. Mahanoy, which declared that public school students have First Amendment rights when they are off campus, an individual identified as C.G. is appealing the dismissal of his lawsuit challenging his expulsion from Cherry Creek High School over a joke he made about Jewish people.

According to the facts in the case, C.G. went to a thrift store on an evening in 2019. While trying on WWII military caps, he wrote to Snapchat “Me and the boys bout to exterminate the Jews.” The post was made off school property.

A Jewish student saw the post and had their parents report it to the police, the Israeli lobbyists at the Anti-Defamation League, Rabbi Richard Rheins, and school district officials. The post, even after being deleted, was circulated widely throughout the Jewish community, which whipped them up into a hysteria and prompted a witch hunt.

This led to C.G. being investigated by the police for the “hate speech,” but they concluded that no law was broken.

School administrators initially only suspended C.G. for a few days, but the ADL then got involved and got to decide on how to punish the student following the incident. Despite C.G. being highly apologetic and the ADL’s Scott Levin admitting that the post was just a joke, the Jewish District Director had C.G. expelled from the school anyway.

C.G.’s First Amendment reasoning in the case is cut and dry, but Colorado District Court Judge R. Brooke Jackson refused to even allow C.G.’s plight to be heard in court and promptly dismissed his case.

Now, with a Supreme Court ruling in tow C.G. will be appealing his case, which under current circumstances may cause federal judges who oppose free speech difficulty in refusing to at least grant him a hearing.

Legal experts believe that his case is bulletproof, though a court could still refuse to grand his appeal and possibly force a legal battle back to the Supreme Court to hear whether the First Amendment protects criticism, satire, or jokes about Jews. In 2021 America, the law is very clear on paper, but increasingly not respected in day to day life.

    The joke is funny because there was NEVER an extermination of jews. The Holohoax is going to be the end of jews, simply due to its obvious and continuous lies. More people understand the lie now than in my previous 60 years of life.

  2. Why should we even begin to care whether or not less than a percent of the population feel offended? 99% of people in this world are not even remotely related to these people,so why would we extend to them such preferential treatment? If anything, learning about Jews being given special privileges makes me hate them only more. There is a reason why the world hates Jews everywhere and throughout all history.

    This case is a test of the ADL’s power within the Jewish power structure as well as a test of the extent of Jewish control of America.

    If this guy wins, the velvet-glove Jews prevail over the iron-fist Jews. Greenblatt is controversial even among Jews because of his extremist intolerance of any hint of goyish resentment.

    For very good reason, some of the wiser Jews in America and Europe realize that a “Whitelash” may result from turning all the control knobs to 11.

    The one thing that stops most people from doing something bad is the thought that it has never been done before.

    Few people want to be the first bad guy doing “that thing” but once “that thing” has been done once then plenty will vye to be the first really successful bad guy doing “that thing”.

    Hitler himself was supposed to have said that the Turks got away with the Armenian genocide so we can get away with a genocide as well. Knowing that history is written by the people who hang heroes that is probably a propaganda statement but propaganda or not it shows how people the world over actually think.

    Pushing a story and never allowing anyone to point out and question the many obvious contradictions in that story without being jailed or losing their jobs or homes is like playing with fire, setting yourself up with a self-created sword of Damocles over your head for someone else to come along and enact more successfully this time around. Some people call it Karma but I call it the human need to be punished for a lie, people go out of their way to confess the lie by doubling down so that it will all backfire on them.

    Not all people are like this but those that believe in a God of retribution and hate generally are. They want their God Satan to hit them to show he loves them but in reality he couldn’t give two hoots whether they live or die. Parents shouldn’t have favourite children but we all do and the favourite is never the self-obsessed bully who thinks the family revolves around them just because they have managed to grab the biggest sticks to beat the others with.

  14. The student who raised a stink about the flippant Snapchat post was just following the guidelines of the IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) definition of anti-semitism.

    As predicted by one of the authors, Kenneth Stern, the IHRA definition of anti-semitism is so broad that it is easily weaponized to suppress or limit free speech.

    “Antisemitism is hatred toward Jews because they are Jews and is directed toward the Jewish religion and Jews individually or collectively. More recently, antisemitism has been manifested in the demonization of the State of Israel.”

    Under the IHRA proposed rules, freedom of speech is subordinate to anti-semitism laws. This is being pushed on all Western countries, trying to take us back to the days of blasphemy laws, but only to protect Jews.

  15. Some weak “joke”. The crudest holocaust joke I ever heard was from a Jewish guy I once know. He was born in 1942 and was not circumcised coz his dad believed the ridiculous fantasy that Hitler planned to conquer the world. Worst thing about the little weasel was that he’d whip it out at a moment’s notice to prove the story was true, much to the chagrin of his prudish girlfriend. As for his joke, well it had to do with ovens, because in the 1950s the legend was about burning people alive; the gas chamber version didn’t come into general usage until the Six Day War in 1967

    Frank was a serial rapist who “graduated” to murder with the murder of Mary Phagan. Young girl employees would come to Frank’s office for their pay; Frank would try to “give them something”. He was known for preying on young girls. When Mary wouldn’t give Frank what he wanted, he murdered her. He tried to blame the murder on a black man (which was easily done at the time) but was unsuccessful in doing so.

    Briefer answer: You have no evidence to back up your assertion.

    [MORE]

    Why not retract instead of adding a cloud of irrelevant detail? Or better, offer evidence that he raped females other than Miss Phagan. How about one other? Is not the truth bad enough? Some anti-ADL people commonly lie/twist about details in the case, even in prominent articles. Instead of researching and taking good notes, they let laziness prevail as long as it makes Leo Frank look as bad as possible.

    Few historical details this way or that could torch the ADL so well as simply posting that humanoid rat Greenblatt’s pic everywhere.

    IMO, a respecter of truth re Leo Frank would stop short of declaring him absolutely a murderer/rapist at all. Spent many hours researching the case and reading trial transcripts, and didn’t find incontrovertible evidence supporting the common belief. I don’t doubt he raped and killed Phagan, but can’t assert without reservation that he did. Don’t necessarily oppose the killing of someone who merely behaved as weaselly as Frank re a murder/rape on his watch. I’d be honest about what I was doing though.

    the IHRA definition of anti-semitism is so broad that it is easily weaponized to suppress or limit free speech.

    I don’t think you’d need to apply a broad definition of anti-semitism to find a comment “we’re off to exterminate Jews” anti-semitic. The issue here is not whether students have a right to free speech off-campus (I think they definitely do), but whether a statement “we’re off to exterminate X” is covered by the right to free speech, which as you probably know is not absolute.

    Would you be cool with black students posting “we’re off to exterminate whites”? Would you still think that was just an innocent joke and they should face no consequences for it? Personally I would be somewhat upset.

  23. It was a stupid and cruel jibe, but forgiveness and turning the other cheek are not in the Judaic lexicon. Just unfathomable hatred and rage.

  24. @Oscar Peterson

    SOME Jews are, indeed, repulsive, but painting a whole group in such a manner is stupid, and plays right into the repulsive Jews’ hands. Why do you think that they are so incredibly aggressive and hate-crazed? To draw a similar response from others, and perpetuate the cycle of hatred on which they thrive. Turn the other cheek, as long as you can, as a rebellious Jew once advocated.

  25. @Exile

    The question that one must ask hyper-aggressive Jews like Greenblatt, is ‘Why do you act this way?’. And the answer is, ‘Because I can’. Many, if not most Jews, are not as viciously aggressive as the Greenblatts, but it takes just a few such creatures to create an ocean of hatred, in which they happily swim, like piranhas.

    Laurent Guyenot’s “From Yahweh to Zion” goes into this at length particularly in the later chapters.

    The Jewish/Zionist identity and worldview is uniquely toxic and very few Jews even try much less succeed in breaking out of the “cry out as you strike” mentality.

    The fact that Jews externalize so much of their angst – Jews especially Ashkenazi are noted for both high neuroticism and aggression, a unique blend of “worrier warrior” – makes their special pathologies our problem.

    The jews have a club they can use called antisemitism. What is the equivalent word for christians, budhists, atheists, etc? It would appear they have one up on the rest of the world.

    Free speech, by definition, is absolute. If it isn’t absolute, then it isn’t free speech. That the laws have been twisted to trample free speech while calling it free speech means we live in a society that is repressive and consists of a population that is incapable of simple logic.

    Everyone should be able to say whatever it is they want as long as it’s true. Screaming fire in a crowded theater is perfectly acceptable as long as the place is on fire. Calling people names may be distasteful, but there should be no prohibition to that in law. Stating an opinion, is just an opinion and harms nothing. Acting out already has laws against physically harming persons or property.

    It’s the folks that want to punish people for speaking their minds that are the problem.

    Jews are the biggest hypocrites in the world. Always talking about the imaginary 6 million killed and yet not one word about the 20+million they have killed both in Russia and in Germany. The bolsheviks were over 90% jews and they killed millions and they want to continue killing more. They are the true mass murderers of society. They don’t only murder millions they murder complete societies. Watch Europa The Last Battle tpo see how hypocritical they really are. Hope the kid wins his suit and the judge tells the ADL to go pound sand.

    Free speech, by definition, is absolute.

    By what definition, though? Certainly not the legal one. You can disagree with the limits law puts on free speech but it is what it is, unless you change it.

    Calling people names may be distasteful, but there should be no prohibition to that in law. Stating an opinion, is just an opinion and harms nothing.

    I agree. What they posted was neither. though – they were not calling anyone names and they didn’t state their opinion. They made a statement that they are about to murder a group of people. As a “joke”… I don’t see the funny side here. Maybe I just lack the sense of humour, but I repeat, if blacks made that joke about me, my response would be probably more along the lines of “let’s nip this in the bud – it is not in my interest to allow darkies to hatch and propagate such ideas, even in jest”.

    If you can honestly say that you wouldn’t feel this way then I admire your dedication to principle. I’m not THAT dedicated, or else I’m just honest enough to admit that I’d be more likely to protect my self-interest than to protect a principle.

    I thought I made it perfectly clear that one need only use common sense and a minimum of logic to conclude that free speech is only free if there are no conditions. As soon as there is any condition, whatsoever, it becomes something less than free speech.

    Hate speech, BTW, is outright bullshit. It was invented to be able to place a new label on what has happened since man invented language, only now the SJW’s claim it’s akin to being stabbed and shot and run over in 1st gear and then reverse.

    People say lots of stupid stuff, like they’re going to kill somebody. It’s done all the time and nothing actually happens 99.9999% of the time. You’re getting concerned over the .0001% of the time that some loony actually makes good on the boast. Do you seriously want the gov’t involved 100% of the time for idle bullshit? Don’t we have enough of those assholes running around now with their nose in our business?

    I see this in the same light as name calling and is why I used that term. I didn’t think anyone else saw it differently, but now I understand you do. I don’t know why you do, but you apparently do.

    To me, you are overreacting to a fart and have convinced yourself that someone fired a gun at you and the bullet missed you by a hair. Calm down, crawl out from under the bed and live life. I fully expect some pampered jew to use even a minimal slight to think the Israeli military should be called in for an air strike, but then that’s what they do and is why they have the reputation they have. Stop it.

    I thought I made it perfectly clear that one need only use common sense and a minimum of logic to conclude that free speech is only free if there are no conditions.

    I beg to differ; my common sense and logic lead me to conclude that there are ALWAYS conditions! For example, let’s say someone decides to do a nice thing for their neighbours and bake some cookies. They bake a tray and put it out on their front lawn with a sign: FREE COOKIES! Well, they are free alright, but there is a limit to how many there are – they baked one tray, but that doesn’t mean they are going to continue baking more, indefinitely. In any case, there is a limit of your digestive system because there’s only so many you can eat. “Free” is not the same as “unlimited”.

    What’s more, there is also the unstated limit: you should not eat all the cookies – leave some for other neighbours, or they will think you’re a selfish prick and that might work against you one day.

    People say lots of stupid stuff, like they’re going to kill somebody. It’s done all the time and nothing actually happens 99.9999% of the time. You’re getting concerned over the .0001% of the time that some loony actually makes good on the boast.

    I’m not worried these particular students were going to follow up on their post; it’s more that making posts like that normalises the idea, not by itself, of course, but as a part of a larger pattern. That’s what I mean when I say them making such posts against me would not be in my interest.

    And look: of course, I’m exaggerating for the purpose of making a point. I don’t think they should be expelled and ruined for life over one stupid post, I would be content if they got put over the knee and spanked a few times.

    I’m proud to be included in such illustrious company, though I’m sorry you don’t like my folksy cookie tales. Let me try another way:

    Free speech is an extension of individual freedom in general, can we agree on that?

    But freedom of an individual is never absolute; it is limited because it does not include the freedom to harm others.

    This extends to speech then; there is distinction between speech that is offensive and speech that is actually harmful. Plotting to commit a crime with your accomplice for example is not ‘free speech’, if it led to actual crime being committed.

    Right to free speech is not absolute then.

    I have read the complete court transcripts and other details of the Leo Frank criminal prosecution. Leo Frank was known for abusing his female employees.
    As a manager of the company Frank quite often accosted young girls just because he could. Except for Mary Phagan, Frank always got away with it. In those days, jobs were hard to come by, there were no protections against sexual harassment and company managers quite often took advantage of their employees as they possessed the power. As a result, female employees who were abused kept their mouths shut as they did not want to lose their jobs.
    An ugly jew such as Frank would not be able to get women to even look at him, (besides an ugly jewess) hence he used his power as a manager to get what he wanted. Leo Frank was a poster boy for celibacy.
    I stand by my statements. Leo Frank’s necktie party was true justice.
