Judge Resigns Over Facebook Posts About Protesters Of Confederate Monuments In Charlottesville – Free Speech On The Line.

by Ruby Henley
Freedom of speech in America is on the line, as Judge James A. Hinkle had to resign due to his criticism  of protesters concerned about Confederate monuments in Charlottesville.  He made a simple post on Facebook, and he did not threaten anyone, as we are seeing so many from the Left doing.  In my opinion, this proves our free speech is endangered.
Judge James A. Hinkle offered his immediate resignation from his position as a part-time magistrate with the Gwinnett County Magistrate Court.  Hinkle’s Facebook post Saturday called protesters of Confederate monuments “snowflakes who have no concept of history.” He later called them “nut cases” and compared them to ISIS terrorists.
This really concerns me, as I have done the same thing.  I believe that this an example of what is to come.  Yes, I know he is a Judge; nonetheless, I believe if he were a Liberal, this comment would have gone unnoticed…Judge or not.  This Judge had served for 14 years.
 
The chief magistrate who suspended him made the following comments:  
“He is a lifelong public servant and former Marine. However, he has acknowledged that his statements on social media have disrupted the mission of this court, which is to provide justice for all. I have accepted Judge Hinkle’s resignation.”
“He is entitled to those. (personal opinions) While, thankfully, our Constitution protects the right of all citizens to express their opinions, judges are held to a more stringent standard by the Judicial Canons. Rule 1.2 (A) of the Georgia Code of Judicial Conduct, Promoting Public Confidence in the Judiciary,” Blum said.

Some say they cannot link to any yahoo finance articles.  I apologize if you cannot.
QUOTE:  Blum quoted this from the judicial canons: “Judges shall act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the independence, integrity, and impartiality of the judiciary.”
Blum said that, under the “heightened standard, the right of the public to a judiciary free from even the appearance of bias takes priority over any Judge’s necessarily limited right to individual expression while serving in that office.”
Hinkle has been a member of the State Bar of Georgia since 1969. His membership listing shows his J.D. from George Washington University. He lives in Grayson, where he was once mayor.END OF QUOTE
 
I believe that as a citizen of the United States under the Constitution this man was a citizen first and a Judge secondly.  I think he had every right to make this comment, as he was not threatening anyone.  He was only practicing his freedom of speech under the Constitution.  
However, many of us know our Constitution has been shredded.  
This Judge was not on the job when he made this statement. Does your employment manipulate your freedom of speech when you are on your “time off?”  
This infuriates me as it is just another assault on the Right by the Left.

  1. The frogs are not only IN the pot with the water slowly boiling, they’re turning the heat up, themselves…
    Swimming happily towards their own demise.

  2. Obama’s ancestors SOLD their Black “brothers” into slavery ….. after all HIS black ancestors were never slaves so were they capturing and selling his “brothers”? ………. Any complaints about slavery should be directed to your “brothers” (OBAMA’S ANCESTORS) back in Africa who dragged you out of the bush and SOLD YOU to the Jewish financed YANKEE Slavers. NOT to the 99% of Whites who had nothing to do with it. Even at the peak of American slavery, only a tiny percentage of American whites–about 1.5%–owned slaves.
    Reparations? Get them from your BROTHERS back in Africa who captured you and sold you to the Jewish slave traders…….. Like the OBAMAS
    Tearing down symbols of SLAVERY????? NEXT they will demand MYSTIC Seaport be closed because it has sailing ships and YANKEE sea captains ran the slave ships. OH! and all those “Tall Ships” celebrations are RACIST TOO..
    Wearing COTTON is a reminder of slavery ….. no Black should ever wear cotton ….. or eat watermelon or ribs.

  3. Tear down ALL the holocaust museums & Synagogues ……
    You must buy and read the Nation of Islam’s book, “The Secret Relationship Between Black and Jews”. It outlines how the jews funded, managed and ran the North and South American slave trade. Every comment is backed by facts – ironically, mostly ALL from jewish sources. You can watch brief videos on Minister Louis Farrakhan.
    https://youtu.be/Ut7I75Q_-zA a good summation
    Jews were behind the Transatlantic Slave Trade… The names of Jewish Slave Ships and their owners: The “Abigail -Caracoa” – Aaron Lopez, Moses Levy, Jacob Crown, Isaac Levy, Nathan Simpson – “The Nassau” – Moses Levy The “Four Sisters” – Moses Levy The “Anne” and The “Eliza” – Justus Bosch and John Abrams The “Prudent Betty” – Henry Cruger and Jacob Phoenix The “Hester” – Mordeci and David Gomez The “Elizabeth” – Mordecai and David Gomez The “Antigua” – Nathan Marston and Abram Lyell The “Betsy” – Wm. De Woolf The “Polly” – James De Woolf The “White Horse” – Jan De Sweevts the “Expedition” – John and Jacob Roosevelt the “Charlotte” – Moses and Sam Levy – “The Franks” Jacob Franks Moses and Sam Levy Jacob Rader Marcus – “All through the eighteenth century, into the early nineteenth, Jews in the North were to own black servants; in the South, the few plantations owned by Jews were tilled with slave labor. In 1820, over 75 percent of all -Jewish- families in Charleston, Richmond, and Savannah owned slaves, employed as domestic servants; almost 40 percent of all -Jewish- householders in the United States owned one slave or more. There were no protests against slavery as such by Jews in the South, where they were always outnumbered at least 100 to 1….But very few Jews anywhere in the United States protested against chattel slavery on moral grounds.” United States Jewry, 1776-1985 (Detroit: Wayne State University Press, 1989), p. 586.

  4. meanwhile, the left tv talking heads, elected officials, etc. calls everyone that doesn’t agree with them hitler, says everyone that voted for trump are racist and should die, etc etc etc..
    and NO ONE is asking them to resign! Is the hypocrisy not evident yet?

  5. People here in Kentucky are bein fired for what they say off the job NOT wearing employer identifying clothing. Free speech is DEAD!
    .
    I just listened to Hannity on the radio for about 20 minutes interviewing a Republican Representative, He sounded great for the entire tie till the end. Hannity pressed him for if Clinton did anything that could result in Crime charges and he heed and hawed. It was disgusting. With the Top Secrete emails compromised and the Clinton Crime Foundation he said squat! Disgusting. Also Hannity kept talking about Podesta’s emails and never ONCE did he ask or mention Spirit Cookin, Hot Dogs, Pizza and the line about dealing severely with the DNC leakers. They are ALL owned. Controlled Opposition!

  6. These statements about even the appearance of bias in a judge only seem to apply to conservatives. You can be as biased as you want if you are a liberal judge.
