The child's law guardian, Ithaca-based attorney Jason Leifer, when asked about the ruling, said he believed the mother had moved into the residence only recently and was not sure if she was necessarily responsible for the rock. But he supported the court's reasoning.
"I think it's appropriate," he said.
City of Evil bump
You will think proper thoughts...or we will kill you.
I’ll go ahead and say it;
“...But if she had a BLM or Antifa or Rainbow or La Raza or Che Guevara or Wakanda flag on display,
no problemo! Right?
Dryden is a cute little crossroads town in very rural CNY and is not part of Ithaca.
Weird that someone should be making an issue about it there.
There are boatloads of BLM flags out that way
Agreed, but what mother is going to risk losing her kids to fight this? Especially in deep blue New York?
As Ithacites have ruined their own city and moved out into the surrounding areas the community has been taken over by democrats.
In fact, the attorney quoted in the article (Liefer) is the town supervisor (and a radical leftie).
Agreed, but like it or not, Family courts have wide discretion when it comes to appropriate environments for children subject to the court. Free speech doesnt necessarily mean the court agrees with a custody arrangement and what is ‘best for the child’. This is most likely a custody battle, and those tend to be ugly.
Just like everywhere else.
They ruin it and then move out so somewhere conservative because they like it and then ruin that as well.
I could see the attraction to Dryden. It’s beautiful down that way.
It was a feel-good day!
She better not replace it with a painted American flag.
I’ll bet the Antifa, BLM, rainbow, hammer and sickle flags are all permitted.
“Given that the child is of mixed race, it would seem apparent that the presence of the flag is not in the child's best interests, as the mother must encourage and teach the child to embrace her mixed race identity, rather than thrust her into a world that only makes sense through the tortured lens of cognitive dissonance,” Pritzker wrote.
“Further, and viewed pragmatically, the presence of the Confederate flag is a symbol inflaming the already strained relationship between the parties,” Pritzker continued. “As such, while recognizing that the First Amendment protects the mother's right to display the flag if it is not removed by June 1, 2021, its continued presence shall constitute a change in circumstances and Family Court shall factor this into any future best interests analysis.”
What a bunch of fascists! While we know you are protected under the 1st Amendment, the Gestapo will take your child to a government indoctrination camp! Heil Biden!
From the article:
“Given that the child is of mixed race, it would seem apparent that the presence of the flag is not in the child’s best interests...”.
wonder how woke she is now?
Get a Confederate Flag tattoo, secretly, on the kid’s butt, where the kid can’t see it.
Sit back and wait.
You are going to have to cut off that kid’s butt!!!
The Dims are trying really hard to make us forget that they were the ones that carried the confederate flag into battle.
