"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
While debating the DISCLOSE Act last night on the Senate floor, New York Senator Chuck Schumer called for restrictions on the First Amendment, citing other laws and regulations already in place in the United States that do so.
“I believe there ought to be limits because the First Amendment is not absolute. No amendment is absolute. . . . . . And certain limits on First Amendment rights that if left unfettered, destroy the equality — any semblance of equality in our democracy — of course would be allowed by the Constitution. And the new theorists on the Supreme Court who don’t believe that, I am not sure where their motivation comes from, but they are just so wrong. They are just so wrong.” read the entire article: here
Leave it to the buffoonish side of the political isle to yearn for the suppression ‘free speech’. These are the same people who came up with the (so called) ‘Fairness Doctrine’, which had little relationship to ‘fairness’ and all affiliation with silencing Conservative speech. Any speech which is not Democrat approved and sanctioned.
I have mild interest in Supreme Court rulings. Especially when they oppose the Constitution. We all know the politically- bigoted Liberal mind, grows to extremes while sitting on the all powerful Supreme Court. For example, there is no ‘right to privacy’, which allowed Democrats to make abortion legal. Just as there is nothing in the Constitution allowing government to mandate Obamacare nor the suppression of free POLITICAL speech. And let’s be clear (something Democrats find repugnant), that’s what Liberals want to suppress.
Democrat buffoonery like Chuck “U” Schumer, would love to suddenly declare he found the ‘shut up Conservatives’ clause within the Constitution. He’d have men in black suites and AK-47’s showing up at Rush Limbaugh work place, to immediately enforce his newly “deemed” law. He’d have Fox News Channel shut down before Brian Kilmeade had his second donut.
Democrats are in a continual ‘itch’ to suppress free speech. It burns their ears to hear anything opposing view liberal views. They call it “offensive” and “hate speech” and have it endless repeated by the news media. At least when words are uttered by Conservative or Republicans. Just as they find their own, incredulously dishonest speech emanating from Democrats, as “enlightening”, and “fair”.
More than likely little Chucky has a bill in his desk draw just waiting for another Democrat controlled Congress to pass or ‘deem’ passed (Nancy Pelosi’s wet dream) that would silence Conservatives under penalty of law, imprisonment, death . . . or all three.
I don’t give a flying gulag about these pompous, blathering Democrats personal opinions on our Constitutional rights to free political speech. It’s not theirs to contort and distort into another power grab to punish Americans. It’s LAW. Part of our Constitution.
The first Amendment says in part, ” Government shall make no law….” There are many times, I think the Founders should have stopped with that. They certainly understood the oppressive hand of government forcibly silencing their speech. And thus they came up with the American Revolutionary War and Declaration of Independence. These things cannot be taken lightly.
