(TNS) The Communists and Marxists who run the Democrat Party and the lamestream media have been effective in their campaign to destroy two fundamental tenets of our republic: The right to say whatever the fuck you want, so long as you’re not threatening anyone, and the right to publish anything that isn’t libelous or defamatory.

When our founders wrote the Constitution, the very first things they sought to protect were speech, the press, religion, expression, and the right to petition the government for redress.
That wasn’t an accident. The founders were rebelling against an English crown that limited all of those things; colonists were not permitted to speak and express themselves freely, publish news and information that was critical of government, engage in any and all forms of religion, and, especially, petition the Crown for a redress of grievances.
The Second Amendment, by the way, was next because the “right to keep and bear arms” was not aimed at protecting deer hunting and target shooting, but self-defense and defense against a tyrannical government. But we digress.
Today, increasingly, speech is under assault. The asswipe Commies on the Left — in politics, academia, and, yes, the media as well — seek to limit expression and speech they don’t agree with.
So they have been working to propagandize a generation of snowflakes into believing they should support limitations on speech and the publication of anything they don’t want to see or hear.
The Free Beacon reports:
A majority of Americans believe the First Amendment should be rewritten and are willing to crack down on free speech, as well as the press, according to a new poll.
More than 60 percent of Americans agree on restricting speech in some way, while a slim majority, 51 percent, want to see the First Amendment rewritten to “reflect the cultural norms of today.” The Campaign for Free Speech, which conducted the survey, said the results “indicate free speech is under more threat than previously believed.”
“The findings are frankly extraordinary,” executive director Bob Lystad told the Washington Free Beacon. “Our free speech rights and our free press rights have evolved well over 200 years, and people now seem to be rethinking them.”
Of the 1,004 respondents, young people were the most likely to support curbing free expression and punishing those who engage in “hate speech.” Nearly 60 percent of Millennials—respondents between the ages of 21 and 38—agreed that the Constitution “goes too far in allowing hate speech in modern America” and should be rewritten, compared to 48 percent of Gen Xers and 47 percent of Baby Boomers. A majority of Millennials also supported laws that would make “hate speech” a crime—of those supporters, 54 percent said violators should face jail time.
American hostility to the First Amendment did not stop at speech. Many would also like to see a crackdown on the free press. Nearly 60 percent of respondents agreed that the “government should be able to take action against newspapers and TV stations that publish content that is biased, inflammatory, or false.” Of those respondents, 46 percent supported possible jail time.
This comes after a pair of University of Connecticut students were arrested for shouting racial slurs. Yeah, they’re dumbasses, sure. But they were libeling anyone, slandering anyone, or threatening anyone. So that shit is protected speech, even if it hurts some feelings.
Make no mistake, children, this is how slaves are made. This is the face of tyranny.
It’s time to double down on ‘Merica and say “fuck you” to the tyrannical sons of bitches who would return our republic to the days before its founding, when powerful men and women decided what we all could and could not say or write and not write (you know, like this web site).
