ban-free-speech-protester-540x444

In a historic and unprecedented event the Senate Judiciary committee held its hearing on the resolution for the proposed amendment of our First Amendment on Tuesday, June 3, 2014. This amendment has been proposed by Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM). This amendment would give Congress unlimited, unconditional power to restrict political speech and activity. To voice ANY concern about your government would become illegal. You would be a criminal under this new amendment if you open your mouth.

These signs have  already been erected everywhere.

first-amendment  This is total BS we have the right in America to speak our mind anywhere – No permit required   freespeech1 Sen. Harry Reid(D-NV) complained about corporations and special interests and “dark money” “meddling” in congressional races. Sen. Reid obviously doesn’t like the right Americans have to voice their opinions about him and his policies. Minority leader Mitch McConnell(R-KY) referred to the initial principles of the First Amendment and the rudimentary importance of protecting our freedoms regarding political speech. A First Amendment lawyer, Floyd Abrams, also spoke to the importance of protecting the fundamental rights of our already established first amendment. Mr. Abrams is well known for his historic victory in the case NY Times Co. v Sullivan. He also verbalized his opinion saying the purpose of this proposed amendment is without doubt “limiting speech intended to affect elections.” Mr. Abrams discerned that titling the amendment-“Restore Democracy to the American People” is derived from a false notion that democracy has already been lost. He added, “the notion that democracy would be advanced-saved, “restored”-by limiting speech is nothing but a perversion of the English language.” obama-first-amendment Present were Democratic witnesses in favor of the amendment who were already besetting over the Koch brothers. A NC State Senator was also obsessed making peculiar claims about assumed Koch-financed efforts to enact a voter ID law “suppressing” the votes of racial minorities. Republican senators including Charles Grassley(R-IA) and Ted Cruz(R-TX) spoke making stimulating statements about the importance of preserving our Bill of Rights. Democrats were almost humorous in respect to the fact that they couldn’t even hold a hearing relating to our First Amendment without infusing their talking points about “voter I D” and “vote suppression.” The Republican senator statements are well worth watching and can be seen by clicking here and here. censorship There are 41 Democratic senators who are in favor of and cosponsoring this proposed amendment. (click senators below to view who voted for this nonsense) There was a sign posted near all the attendees waiting to get in and be seated that listed all things not allowed in the hearing room. Listed on it was: NO flash photography, filming, standing, shouting or applause, food or drink, signs or large bags. Boxes full of petitions that support Udall’s censorship amendment were loaded onto a large cart and it was being pushed down the hallway by six or seven individuals. The boxes had bodaciously positioned labels with the names of liberal advocacy groups and political action committees on them. With protest signs held high the individuals proceeded to enter the hearing room. A Democratic committee staffer supervising the entry ignored the violation of posted rules even after a vocalized observance of such violations by an attendee. She (staffer) just looked away. About 30 reporters and photographers awaiting entry started taking pictures of the group pushing the cart as it was trundled to the front of the hearing room. Before sitting down several of the advocacy group representatives posed for a picture while holding their signs up high. A Capitol police woman standing by the entrance also remain studious to the fact liberal protesters were violating the posted rules.

If There is An Amendment To First Amendment To Muzzle You

protest It was Chairman Patrick Leahy(D-VT) committee’s staff that allowed the protesters and their signs to come in early and help stage-manage protests held prior to the start of the hearing. Which was clearly for the benefit of the photographers in the room. As evident by the absence of the staffers and Capitol police’s actions to eject the Code Pink demonstrators from the room in any timely fashion. After the cameras were turned on, Chairman Leahy did warn attendees about NOT waving signs or protesting. After the warning one protester was removed. Stupid

It sure seems like Democratic senators want and support this proposed amendment. Here are the Senators that are cosponsoring such an abomination.
