DeviantART Freedom of Speech sign now

DeviantART is a diverse artists' community. There are people of all cultures, religions, ethnicities and political views and nearly every day these views clash in a positive and informative manner. The whole point of DeviantART is to be a community where artists of diverse backgrounds can interact.

DeviantART recently has had a question of Freedom of Speech. Petitions have gone around in attempt to ban certain symbols and beliefs from this site. What people do not seem to realize is that as DeviantART is based in America it is also under American law, which clearly states in Amendment 1 of the Bill of Rights,

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

In support of this statement this petition has been created and hopefully with enough signatures we can continue to be an open-minded and free art community.

    The deviantArt community falls under the law of the United State. Therefor, justification for banning "holocaust denial" or nationalist symbols is as valid an argument as that no woman's photograph should be caught upon camera unless she is wearing a head
