NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – A state lawmaker from Knoxville said Wednesday that ISIS should be allowed to recruit at the University of Tennessee and other state universities during discussion about a bill protecting free speech on college campuses.
The bill, called the “Tennessee Student Free Speech Protection Act,” is sponsored by Rep. Martin Daniel (R-Knoxville) and would require the governing boards of Tennessee higher education institutions to adopt a policy on freedom of speech and expression. Martin said during a subcommittee meeting that he believed students’ free speech had been diminished due to unfair policies. Martin’s response came after a question from Rep. John DeBerry Jr. (D-Memphis) challenging whether all speech should be considered free. “Should someone be able to stand in the marketplace, or in the town square at the University of Tennessee, University of Memphis, Murfreesboro, Cookeville, Austin Peay, and recruit for ISIS?” asked DeBerry. “Yes, so long as it doesn’t disrupt the proceedings on that campus. Yes sir. They can recruit people for any other organization or any other cause. I think it’s just part of being exposed to differing viewpoints,” said Daniel. DeBerry argued that the world has changed in recent years. “There are young people who are not ready yet. They’re half-baked, half-cooked, who are recruited to work against their own parents, their own nation, and I would be concerned as a parent and as a citizen,” DeBerry said. “Free speech is one thing. Being stupid is another.” The bill was taken off notice following the exchange. Martin had pushed for the bill to be sent to summer study. // // // // // //

This is an example of polymorphous perversion and also exploitation of a minor. Even if a case is not pursued, it still needs to be known publicly, just like the high-level officials at DOD and NSA caught with child porn on their computers. People in Port Angeles washington are accused of making child porn; Port Angeles is an international port city, so you can cross from canada and have a weekend dalliancel they couldn’t figure out why the Bush’s came here.
This lawmaker should be removed from office immediately. He’s too ignorant.
I am the ex-girlfriend of the accuser above. His name was Sean, he killed himself, although they won’t tell you that here. Sean was sexually molested most of his life by William Hutton, along with several other young boys in Madison, CT, where we all lived at the time. I know names & am positive of all these facts, so much that I would be willing to testify in court.
