Broward County Commission Faces Free Speech Dilemma

free speech

The Broward County Commission is headed towards a free speech dilemma.

An anti-Semitic wacko wants time on the Commission agenda to address them.

Joseph D. Gilberti claims that a whole range of political and business leaders are covering up a hidden river underground which will solve Florida’s water problems.

Gilberti also is a virulent anti-Semite and bona fide fruitcake based on his Twitter posts below.

He believes that Democratic state Rep. Katie Edwards of Plantation, along with serial entrepreneur Ron Bergeron, the Sun-Sentinel, Broward General Medical Center physicians, Gov. Rick Scott and others are involved in a scheme to hide his findings. Somehow the Boston bombings and 9/11 figure in all this.

Can the commission forbid him from addressing them just because his speech will be unpopular, offensive and just plain off-the-wall? Maybe yes or maybe no.  But Mayor Marty Kiar says the group can curb “impertinent” speech.
