(GoRealNewsNow.com) – BREAKING NEWS NOW: In a move that has outraged social conservatives and millions of Americans, a federal judge has ruled that banning drag shows is unconstitutional.
Specifically, according to The Hill in “Federal judge rules Tennessee restrictions on drag shows unconstitutional“:
“A federal judge ruled on Friday that a Tennessee law banning drag shows in public or in places where children could view them is unconstitutional, finding that it violates freedom of speech protections.
“U.S. District Judge Thomas Parker said in his ruling that the law, which Gov. Bill Lee (R) signed in March, is both ‘unconstitutionally vague and substantially overbroad.’“ [emphasis added]
Adding context, The Hill reports:
“[The judge] ruled that the state has a compelling interest in protecting the physical and psychological well-being of minors, but the law is not the least restrictive nor most narrowly tailored way that it could accomplish this without violating free speech.
“The Tennessee law was the first in the country to directly target drag shows. First-time violators of the law could have faced a $2,500 fine and up to a year in prison.” [emphasis added]
