In every generation, we must fight for our rights, or else they will be eliminated. This has never been more true than in our current political climate.
Since the election of Donald Trump, evil forces have worked overtime to suppress the freedoms of millions of Americans.
Judges have violated the authority of the president. Riots and unconstrained protests have jeopardized the safety and lives of people who just want to go about their day.
They have claimed it’s okay to “punch a Nazi” then claim any right winger to be a Nazi.
The idea of “hate speech” is being used to prevent people from expressing their opinion, be it online or in public.
It’s clear the modern left has more in common with 1984’s Big Brother than they do with JFK. They aim to subjugate American citizens to their will, the Bill of Rights be damned.
It’s already happening.
From Zero Hedge:
In a bill aimed at securing a “right to be forgotten,” introduced by Assemblyman David I. Weprin and (as Senate Bill 4561 by state Sen. Tony Avella), liberal New York politicians would require people to remove ‘inaccurate,’ ‘irrelevant,’ ‘inadequate’ or ‘excessive’ statements about others…
As The Washington Post’s Eugene Volokh rages, under this bill, newspapers, scholarly works, copies of books on Google Books and Amazon, online encyclopedias (Wikipedia and others)
— all would have to be censored whenever a judge and jury found (or the author expected them to find) that the speech was “no longer material to current public debate or discourse” (except when it was “related to convicted felonies” or “legal matters relating to violence” in which the subject played a “central and substantial” role).
Nor is there an exception for autobiographic material, whether in a book, on a blog or anywhere else. Nor is there an exception for political figures, prominent businesspeople and others.
Obviously such a bill will be immediately rejected, on the grounds that it clearly violates our First Amendment rights.
Such a gross attack on our fundamental freedoms cannot even be seriously considered and is a waste of law makers’ time and attention.
Should such a bill be passed in New York, be sure that it would be overruled by its own Superior Court, if not the U.S. Supreme Court.
But the fact that there are lawmakers — in the United States — putting forth such offensively un-American bills, is unacceptable.
This far-reaching bill would outlaw open and free speech in such a basic way, that no one will be free.
Weprin and Avella must be held accountable for pushing such an irresponsible bill. They should be removed from their seats come the next election.
