(National Sentinel) First Amendment: The political Left in America has long sought to undermine our constitutional system and replace it with a more authoritarian model of government more akin to European-style socialism.
As reported by The Daily Caller, just over half of Virginians would limit free speech on college campuses so that little snowflake college students would not have to be exposed to any differences of opinion or situations where they might have to actually defend their own points of view:
“A very narrow majority” of the 806 adult Virginia residents polled said they think colleges and universities should emphasize “protecting everyone on campus from discrimination, even if it means there are negative consequences for voicing one’s opinions.”
Just 40 percent of the poll participants said colleges and universities should emphasize “allowing everyone on campus to have unlimited freedom of expression, even if it means some groups of people may face discrimination.”
Now mind you, one person’s “discrimination” is another person’s difference of opinion. Leftists have portrayed President Donald J. Trump’s travel ban from six terrorism-infested countries as a “discriminatory Muslim ban” when it is nothing of the sort, for example. And his upcoming decision to reverse President Obama’s very unconstitutional DACA program is going to be considered “racist” and “discriminatory” by the Left when again, it’s nothing of the kind.
It is genuinely shocking to see a majority — or even a very large plurality — of Virginians favor shutting down speech simply because they disagree with it.
What would our first president — Virginian and founding father George Washington — think about that?
