First Amendment Rights

Will the Department of Justice attempt to criminalize speech against Islam? Please watch the short video below the fold (hat tip to Infidel Bloggers Alliance).


The applicable portion of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution:
Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press...

  1. I put nothing past members of our Congress. They will subvert the Constitution without a moments hesitation if it suits their quest for gaining and/or maintaining political power.

  2. This has been a long time coming. Many here do not realize (I know you do, AOW) just how "radical" our free speech rights look to the rest of the world. Sadly, we are an outlier, even within Western Democracy.

    This is the next fight, because statist progressives do not like free speech, and doubly so because they have become the patsies of the passive-aggressive radical Muslim lobby.

  3. I couldn't say it better than Silverfiddle. Our right to free speech will come under constant attack.

  4. A Judge just re-instated the unlawful detention of us without due process otherwise known as NDAA. We can be locked up forever.

  5. I like 'em a lot more than the average fringe right winger, Silver.

    Now why don't you go give Ed Meese's ghost a big kiss.

  6. Silverfiddle -- "...statist progressives do not like free speech..."

    Unless it's their own.

  7. The progressive mindset abhors free speech, and this is why there are loons trolling the blogosphere telling writers to STFU, shouting RACIST each and every time they don’t like the message, or even holding their ears while hollering LALALALALALALALA. So here is the Justice Department of the United States who refuses to answer a question about suppressing the right of free speech. Why is that person not impeached for his violation of the Fourteenth Amendment?

    Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

    The man from DOJ is an enemy of the Constitution and should be removed from office pursuant to the law, above.

  8. "Hate Speech" prohibition has always been the Left's sine qua non. The pc police LOVE their jobs.

  9. don't forget the censorship of free expression started with criminalizing antisemitism

    we should never forget that some people are more equal than others

  10. Well, I'm all for hate speech. I hate Islam and illegal aliens and Barack Obama and his monkey-faced wife Michelle and I enjoy saying so. They'll have to pry my hate speech from my cold, dead fingers, so to speak. Hatefully.

    The Socialists would have us become a nation of frightened whisperers, controlled by Big Brother, and looking at the steadily rising rate of obesity as an indicator, they appear to be winning.

  11. Meanwhile, the Justice Department relies heavily on "Media Matters" to help suppress the speech of conservatives.

    You just have to scratch your head.

  12. Only Mooselimbs are protected from my hate speech ... and I have a lot.

  13. Silverfiddle, reflect on Odie's level of enlightenment and remember that it was less than 60 years ago when the virulent anti-Catholicism was wrapping up.

    They Protestant elite didn't believe you could integrate and now you join the oppressors.

    Look at the progress we've made.

  14. I’m guessing the only reason Ducky doesn’t check himself into a mental health clinic is that he’s afraid they won’t let him leave again until he’s completed many years of shock therapy.

  15. @ Ducky: ...and now you join the oppressors.

  16. When you look at what Obama appointees, like Sunstein and Lloyd have said, this doesn't come as surprise. Dissent must be banned, and free speech is a thorn in their side.

  17. In spite of all of the festering taking place extraneously, the biggest threats to this Nation come from within. Our, so called, Department of Justice is but one example!

    ReplyDelete
  18. What are you questioning Silver?

    You join those who tar all Muslims with a very,very broad brush ignoring the history of so many religious and ethnic groups before them.
    But Muslims have been pretty successful economically in America and the social assimilation follows economic success. No need to be as ignorant as Odie.

  19. We are watching the growth of forces described in Relevations.

    No one likes to believe the endtimes will occur in their lifetime.

    But how can there be any doubt we are watching the beginning of the persecution of Christians worldwide?

  21. I see the future where interpreting the Constitution will be done by Liberal/Progressives placed on the courts. We all know how they will rule. We see it every day.

  22. In a way you're lucky it's an election year, judging by the groveling, ass-kissing and general cowardice coming from the white house over the muslim riots; I'm pretty sure obama would have junked your free speech rights long ago to appease his muslim brethren.

    Please America, don't give him your vote, he will take all your rights along with it if you do.

  23. It is a criminal offense to not obey The Constitution.

  24. Lady Liberty-- Then what's Obimbo and 15/16ths of his administration and the rest of the Communists (aka Democrats) doing out, walking the streets?!

  26. Today we see them, but as with any passing dictatorship, sooner or later they will be gone.
    Much like infestations when the lights are turned on.
    Be at Peace, Son of the Republic, you know as well as I ,
    that Americans will only put up with this guff for so long. I am not aware of that tipping point, but I feel it may be near. Be of Good Cheer! The Right Always Triumphs!

  27. Dear Blogginator, although these do indeed appear to BE those End Times, we should not wear it as a time of trepidation and fear. We KNOW the outcome! Come Hell AND High Water- WE PERSEVERE. And, I might add, we ALSO OVERCOME, often as a natural consequence of Spirit and Backbone!

  28. Lady Liberty,
    You mentioned like infestations when the lights are turned on.

    The key now is to prevent as much damage as possible from the infestation!

    And to stand against evil -- as we are commanded.
