Do Today’s College Students Know What The 1st Amendment Really Is?

Is hate speech free speech

I watched the following video this morning posted by campusreform.org. I was ‘hit’ by the reality of the extent that our indoctrinated young people do not know or understand our Constitution and our rights as Americans.

This reality does not bode well for our future. Why?

Because you might say that the Constitution is ‘just’ a piece of paper. If it is not read, understood, accepted and enforced by ‘the people’, then it’s only worth the paper that it’s printed on, so to speak.

When the apparent majority do not know the Constitution (in this case the First Amendment) it becomes easy to sway or bend their beliefs.

An eventual result (which we are experiencing today) is the gradual loss of freedoms. The slowly boiled frog doesn’t know any better, right?

The dark forces against personal freedom are (and have been) leveraging this to their advantage as they ‘progress’ with their socialist/marxist agendas. We’re witnessing it happen right in front of our eyes.

We are now seeing politicians openly displaying their true socialist/marxist colors. They’re not ‘afraid’ of hiding it anymore. They must feel that they’ve sufficiently indoctrinated and gathered enough of the sheeple to support their ideals (which is apparent when you look at the younger generations today).

“Campus Reform Media Director Cabot Phillips went to Columbia University to see what young people knew about the First Amendment and what they thought the line was between hate speech and free speech.”

Watch this video:

 
It is quite apparently true that a majority (vast majority?) of ‘younger people’ believe that one’s right to free speech is limited up to the point that speech makes them uncomfortable. Therefore if the words they’re hearing are upsetting in some way, their rights are somehow being violated.

When asked who decides on what that point or that line is? They can’t answer clearly… (although they’re probably thinking ‘the government’).

“Hate Speech” is now part of their vocabulary and is believed to be an exception to ‘freedom of speech’. I clearly remember when the mainstream began using that term. They all started parroting it. It has permeated college campuses across the country.

When asked what “it” is, they each have their own perception about what “it” is. Generally it is when a string of words are put together that make them feel uncomfortable or very uncomfortable. And they believe “it” should not be allowed.

Side note: ‘Back in the day’, when someone said something that made you feel uncomfortable, we were often told to ‘grow a thicker skin’. In other words, “suck it up”. That’s life… And by dealing with one’s own perceived discomforts would eventually lead towards a stronger human being.

Because so many people now believe that “hate speech” really exists (and should not be allowed), ‘they’ (those dark forces) are now seeking to regulate “it”, to punish “it”. We are seeing that with the Tech Giants as they squelch the voices of “the right”, which they’re calling “hate speech”.

The First Amendment

FREEDOM OF:

RELIGION
SPEECH
PRESS
ASSEMBLY
PETITION

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Note: I do not see any hate speech exception in there anywhere…

Note: Do you have your own copy of the Constitution? (Check it out)

 

Is Hate Speech Free Speech?

Justice Samuel Alito:

The idea that the government may restrict speech expressing ideas that offend … strikes at the heart of the First Amendment. Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express “the thought that we hate.”

 
SUMMARY
We’re in trouble here folks…
