RALEIGH The Wake County Republican Liberty Caucus is not a chartered organization within the Wake County Republican Party. They do not hold a position on our executive committee, nor does the Wake County Republican Party have any role in their choice of speakers.
However, the Wake County Republican Party defends the right of any group of citizens to meet in a public place to discuss ideas, policies, or philosophies without threat of boycott or retribution. The fact that the Wake County Republican Liberty Caucus was denied that right is alarming. Freedom of Speech is for everyone, not just those with popular views or with whom we agree. In fact, the First Amendment exists precisely because individuals must be free to express unpopular views that may be contrary to the viewpoint of the majority. The Proud Boys are protected by the same First Amendment that protects media outlets and any other private group or citizen who wants to speak up. We tread on dangerous ground when we start picking and choosing who is and who isn't protected by the First Amendment.
