a. Frankfurter defers to the judgment of the West VA legislature. The four previous times the Court dealt with the compulsory flag salute, the Court held it was not beyond the power of the states to enact such a salute.
b. He says the “Clear and Present Danger” test (and the First
Am., for that matter) does not even apply here because “saluting the
flag” is not a restraint on speech.
1. Dave says this is just wrong.
c. If the Jahova’s witnesses have a problem saluting flag, then
they can express their views in public, just like any other citizen.
