It’s become way too obvious, the duplicity, the hypocrisy, the remonstrations against those who firmly support the First Amendment. If you haven’t noticed, the left has started an all-out war against free speech and the 1st Amendment. It’s because they need to do whatever they can to continue to chip away and eventually repeal the 1st Amendment as well as other aspects of the United States Constitution. Freedom of Speech is on the chopping block, it would seem, thanks to liberals and the left.
This is the reason for the attacks on the 2nd Amendment as well. It is also why the call for a national police force is taking place, which will defeat the 10th Amendment if put into effect.
People need to understand the overriding reason these individual amendments or parts of the Constitution come under attack and no amount of rational discussion with leftists will make any difference. They are not open to reason or logic. They have an agenda. The agenda is to create a new society in America, one that is not built or nor dependent upon the documents that created this country. In fact, those very documents are keeping the elite from moving America to a full-blown socialist state.
Right now, the discussions surrounds the shooting of two radicalized Muslims in Garland, TX. Their reaction to the art contest sponsored by Pamela Geller brought about their own deaths. They deliberately chose to pick up rifles and went to the event with the intent to shoot to kill people involved in the event. While wounding one security guard, they themselves were quickly killed by vigilant police officers from Garland, TX.
Anti-Free Speech proponents are quick to blame Pamela Geller for sponsoring such an event that brought about the tragedy. As I’ve mentioned before (and so has David Risselada), the truth of the matter is that this is an attempt to blame the victims, rather than the perpetrators.
You can see Ms. Callimachi’s tweet and my response to it. The reality is that it is a liberal’s dream to “set aside free speech.” It’s what they deign to do because it helps destroy the Constitution.
Yet, these same people have supported the “art” project called “Piss Christ” because of the 1st Amendment. I didn’t hear Callimachi (or any other liberal) ask the same question when “Piss Christ” was put on display. No one said, “Free speech aside, why would anyone do something as provocative as creating a piece of art called “Piss Christ”?
It didn’t happen. Why? Because the same goal that makes people want to give a wide berth to Islam is the same goal that allows and encourages attacks on Christians and Christianity. The goal is the destruction of the more conservative aspects of the United States.
As Risselada mentioned in his article – A Relentless Assault Against the First Amendment – even the UN is getting involved in wanting negativisms against Islam to be made criminal. While they SAY that this will apply to all religions, we know that it will MAINLY (and pretty much ONLY) apply to Islam. The reality is that the attack is relentless against Christians and Christianity. If the UN’s wishes become law, it would ultimately mean that Christians would not be able to preach or teach about Islam in a way that shows that Islam is a false religion. This is already the case with respect to the area of homosexuality as well as Islam in places like the UK and Canada.
But those countries do not have a 1st Amendment that guarantees a person the right to express themselves. Do I have the right to yell “Fire!” in a crowded building? Actually, yes, I do? If I yell it and it causes a stampede where people are harmed, could I be arrested? Yes, I can.
Richard Fowler, a guest on Megyn Kelly’s show, said (my paraphrase), free speech doesn’t mean I have the right to walk into a black church and yell the “N” word. Yes, it does. If I’m stupid enough to do that, the Constitution will back me up. I find it fascinating that the example of a black CHURCH was used. The guest’s implication was that if I go into a black church and yell the “N” word, and I get the crap beat out of me for doing so, that’s on me.
No, it’s really not. Again, that is the left’s mentality of blaming the victim. He is ultimately stating that if I go into a black church, yell the “N” word, and blacks in that CHURCH attack me for it, physically, verbally, or both, well, it’s not THEIR fault, is it? I SAID something, protected under the 1st Amendment. They beat on me physically, so THEY broke the law by laying their hands on me. But Megyn’s guest would have me believe that even though my speech is protected under the 1st Amendment (he says in this case, it isn’t), because I said something that angered someone, they would have the expected “right” to pummel me into the ground because of it. At a CHURCH, no less! Watch it yourself below.
Do people have a right to peacefully protest what she did? Of course they do, but they do NOT have the right to take up arms and attempt to kill those involved in that event, no more than a Christian would have the “right” to kill the artist who created “Piss Christ”!
Imagine what would happen if some “Christian” went off and killed someone because they were offended at a piece of art. Would these SAME people who are condemning Pamela Geller NOW be condemning the artist who created such a “provocative” piece of artwork or would they be condemning the “Christian”?
Do I even need to answer that question? The truth is glaringly obvious, but leftists like Richard Fowler would find a way to explain things so that they wouldn’t be seen as hypocritical. It would be a major fail.
To Bill O’Reilly, Greta Van Sustern, Donald Trump, and all the other so-called conservatives who condemn Pamela Geller’s actions, they need to stop and rethink their position. If they themselves would not do what Geller did, that’s fine. For them to condemn Geller, they are ostensibly giving a pass to the Islamists who took rifle in hand and attempted to MURDER people associated with the event.
I don’t agree that what Geller did was the smartest thing to do, but THAT has NO bearing on her 1st Amendment rights at all. Radicalized Muslims need no excuse to kill people. They already believe they have it. Whether it’s America’s support of Israel or simply the fact that there are “infidels” (non-Muslims) living alongside them, Muslims who kill do so because they are loyal to the tenets of Islam. They fully believe that ALL infidels should be killed.
Even IF we removed the 1st Amendment, that would not stop the killings. Muslims like the two in Garland, TX, fully believe they have a mandate from Allah. That mandate is to kill or be killed. Either way, they believe they win.
This is the type of madness that exists in the mindset of these particular Muslims. You cannot reason with them. You cannot have a discussion with them. You cannot force them to act like civilized people. It is their way or the highway.
Even completely eradicating the 1st Amendment would make NO difference where ISIS or any other radicalized Islamic group is concerned. Liberals and leftists are merely playing into the hands of Islam by agreeing with them that people should be limited in what they say. This is in spite of the fact that it will not make one bit of difference.
Again though, the goal is not to make a difference where Muslims are concerned. The goal is to OVERRIDE the Constitution of the United States of America. That is the end game.
We need to be aware of this and call leftists out on it. If nothing else, they will be seen as they are – hypocrites to the nth degree.
