Palin on Team Alito



Text  



In response to the Supreme Court decision determining that the Westboro Baptist Church’s hateful protests at a fallen Marine’s funeral were protected by the First Amendment, Sarah Palin tweeted this message:

Common sense & decency absent as wacko “church” allowed hate msgs spewed@ soldiers’ funerals but we can’t invoke God’s name in public square

 Justice Samuel Alito, the only dissenter, wrote that the First Amendment did not protect those who “intentionally inflict severe emotional injury on private persons at a time of intense emotional sensitivity by launching vicious verbal attacks that make no contribution to public debate.”
