HOLOCAUST FACE MASKS
MAKE A STATEMENT. INSPIRE INDIVIDUAL THOUGHT.
The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution reads, “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech.” The word “speech” has long been understood to include more than verbalization. This amendment also protects the right to wear or display controversial symbols as part of the general principle that, as the Supreme Court said in 1957, “Every citizen shall have the right to engage in political expression and association." Further, although the First Amendment on its face bars only acts of Congress, it has been applied to the acts of state legislatures because the 14th Amendment, enacted in 1866, says that “no state shall” deprive any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law.
Our goal here was to protest tyranny. Not mask wearing. Unfortunately and understandably, many had emotional reactions to the original designs and the concept behind them was not considered. The reaction to demand that people should not be able to express their opinion that tyranny is afoot, is troublesome. This reaction is especially troublesome when it is made by those who claim to have the strongest associations with one of the most tyrannical events in human history. We must allow people to express themselves freely. We must allow people to make their own associations freely. When we begin forcing interpretations unto others, we are no better than the propogandists that wish control our perceptions of reality. We join them in corrupting truth.
We have removed items with the most complaints, and our other items will remain available until we close the website August 11.
