Anti-Gov. Scott Walker protester has car horn muted: "Not free speech"

Corporations are people, but apparently car horns aren't, according to a Milwaukee County judge.

A man named Azael Brodhead drove by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's house every day for weeks and leaned on his car horn, flipped the bird from his sun roof, and shouted "Recall Walker!" He claimed it was his First Amendment right to be able to do that.

Then he got in trouble.

Via TheNorthwestern.com:

Last week, Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Mary Kuhnmuench found there was no precedent for horn-honking being constitutionally protected political speech.

He was fined $166.20.

The good news? He still drives by every day and shouts, "Recall Walker!" ... but his horn remains silent.

Honk if you love Azael Brodhead.

    There IS a line somewhere between protected political speech and public nuisance.

    Too bad he doesn't have a bullhorn to speak into and use to say recall walker.
