Free Speech Is So Important That A Jewish Lawyer Defended Neo-Nazis Rights | Sh@keymclovin – The Center of the Decentralized

On May 1, 1977 the Nationalist Socialist Party of America, neo-Nazis, wanted to hold a rally at city hall in Skokie Illinois in full Nazi regalia. The Nazis chose a town with a large Jewish population many of which were survivors of the Holocaust.

After banning the Nazis from rallying, a Jewish ACLU Attorney named David Goldberger defending the Nazis and their right to free speech said,“Your Honor, if this court issues a preliminary injunction in the case, enjoining the demonstration of Mr. Collin and the National Socialist Party of America, I fear that the Village of Skokie will be dancing in the grave of the First Amendment.”
