It’s the Constitution, stupid!

Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, New York Times’ Paul Krugman, Senator Jay Rockefeller, Representative Robert Brady and a growing number of Progressives, are quick to condemn behavior that may be appalling to them, but is a God-given freedom guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

Dupnik and Krugman, of course, were quick to blame the Tucson tragedy on free speech offered by non-Progressives which they consider to be “hate speech.”  Rockefeller says his work would be easier if MSNBC and FOX News were to be shut down.  Brady, poor soul, says he does not want to limit free speech – he just wants it to be illegal to use symbols he doesn’t like.

New York Representative Carolyn McCarthy can’t let this crisis go to waste; she’s introducing new gun-control legislation in hopes of capturing support from the emotion surrounding the Tucson event.

The Constitution is not a document of convenience, to be ignored at will and displayed at election time.

What is it about the First Amendment that’s so hard to understand?  “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech….”  There is no exception for “hate speech” in the Constitution.  There is no definition of “hate speech” in the Constitution.  “Hate speech” is the construct of Progressives who need a way to control the flow of information that exposes the fallacies of their philosophy.

And now… the rest of the story. …..
