Read The Compelled Speech Doctrine: No American can be forced to admit he is a sex offender nor register as one. It’s the great silver bullet to slay the sex offender beast. Forcing an American to register “as a sex offender” is a violation of the First Amendment Compelled Speech Doctrine.

What it means:

Every child and his parents must be informed that they alone can give their child permission to admit he is a sex offender. Every person registered must be informed that he is not a sex offender unless he says so.

“But,” you say, “they are called sex offenders.” Exactly. Americans are not sex offenders, they are called sex offenders. If it does not carry the power of law (keep this point in mind), it is free speech and legal to call any and all Americans sex offenders.

“What?” Yes. The sex offender label was free speech long before the idiots in the USDOJ decided to allow Congress to use it in public policy. Read the book Lolita (1953). It used the sex offender label outside the government’s definition of a person convicted of a sex crime.

“So?” The government does not have a proprietary, exclusive right to define who is a sex offender nor in which context it is used in. It cannot control or limit new generations of who is a sex offender nor limit the context to a person convicted of a sex crime. I can imagine a pink elephant prosocial alien sex offender who can never be brought to trial and therefore can never be convicted. Can the gov stop me from writing a book or essay about my imaginary sex offender? Can it stop me from calling public employees sex offenders? Not while the government and it’s employees call Americans sex offenders.

No. Lolita has sold 50 million copies. It’s too late. The sex offender label is free speech. It’s the great paradox: We all can be called sex offenders but none of us can be forced to admit we are one!!! More on this later…

Now, the exception to free speech use of the sex offender label: Government and it’s employees.

“What?” OK, let me explain. The sex offender label is a sexual slur for an American convicted of a sex crime. Sex offender is what “nigger” was to the KKK and government and it’s employees in the early 1900’s. They all thought and believed they had a legal right to call colored people “niggers.” They were wrong.

Just as today’s government and it’s employees are wrong about calling and registering Americans as sex offenders. And it’s not just because calling an American a sex offender is offensive.

It’s much worse than that. Follow this sequence: Sex offender. Offensive. Sexually offensive. Sexually offensive behavior. Sexually offensive behavior? By government and it’s employees?

Yes. When sexual behavior by government officials and public employees is refused, especially when sexually offensive behavior is refused, continuing to compel the person to accept sexually offensive behavior is sexual harassment by the government and it’s employees.

Remember the Compelled Speech Doctrine? I refuse to accept Oregon State Police’s sexually offensive behavior in calling me a sex offender and forcing me to register”as a sex offender.” I put it in writing to cease and desist. They ignore my warning and continue to sexually harass me.

All I need is a good lawyer. That’s where I am now. Maybe you can find a top notch civil rights lawyer to free all of us with a massive class action suit. Maybe you can put together the online notification of all who are being sexually harassed that their child is not a sex offender:

KANASO. Kids are not a sex offender.

DINASO. Dad is not a sex offender.

BINASO. Brothers are not a sex offender.

SANASO. Sisters are not sex offenders.

FANASO. Families are not sex offenders.

Make your own online categories to attract families eager to know that their loved one is not a sex offender, that they are all being sociosexually offended and sociosexually humiliated and sexually harassed by the government and it’s employees.

I hope you find this news comforting. I refused to be indoctrinated with sex offender propaganda. It’s taken years to realize that I am in a non-consensual sexual relationship with my government and it’s employees. I don’t want a sexual relationship with them. I am going to stop it and hope you lead the way.

This is a copy of a recent letter. Please email me if you wish to discuss what I am doing in Oregon. There is a critical need to inform all of the families who are indoctrinated with sex offender propaganda. Once they realize that they are not sex offenders, they can refuse the government’s sexual behavior. This makes any further sexual contact sexual harassment by the State and it’s employees.

All it will take is a great constitutional legal team and sex offender registration is dead. No American can be forced to admit he is a sex offender. When the State continues it’s sexually offensive behavior after being legally warned, it is a violation of the Compelled Speech Doctrine of the First Amendment and sexual harassment.

Offender Sex Offender For All.
