Morning moment U.S. Trying to Criminalize Free Speech June 2017
This is a shocking story I just came across from the gate stone Inst
It appears The United States Congress is quietly trying to reduce the first amendment for those of you who don’t what that is because yo don’t live in the US well it’s Part of the US constitution that I as a Canadian wished we had right now to stop our Communist dictator
Anyway on with this
and I have to say Lawyers hate this because it says what it is and no legal combo jumbo we have today
Life would be a lot more concise if they spoke and wrote laws in this manner today (but then there would NO need for them would there!)
I. 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.
Now it turns out the Congress has other ideas
This is just the headlines but I urge you and in particular ALL Americans listening to look at the full article which I put a link to on my website
The law already prohibits violence and threats of violence, and law enforcement authorities are supposed to prosecute those — intimidation, destruction, damage, vandalism, simple and aggravated assault. What “hate crimes” are not already covered by the law?
Why would the House of Representatives find it necessary to make such redundant statements, if not in order to redefine the concept of a hate crime? Perhaps by including “hate speech”? The current resolution includes most of the major ethnic and religious minorities in the United States so it will have a far better chance of passing, as it will more easily fool Representatives into thinking that the contents of the resolution are harmless.
Would it not be appropriate for the politicians sponsoring and voting for these resolutions, first of all, to find out what drives the organizations responsible for drafting them? The Investigative Project on Terrorism has authored a damning 88-page report about the Muslim Public Affairs Council. American politicians do not seem to have taken much interest in it.
