"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."
How much more clearer do you need it!
The first 5 words say it all! "Congress shall pass no law". For most of that 231 years the US people and their leadership did not need anymore "protection" and understood what these words meant and lived by them.
It is only in the last 1/2 century of more that one political movement, knowing that the majority of Americans are not going to buy what they are selling has engaged in a campaign of censorship and disinformation!
In the 1950s, "there are no communists infiltrating our country and Sen. McCarthy is just a paranoid fool" That statement is now proven to be abjectly false and those people questioned by Sen. McCarthy were in fact either communists or Soviet agents!
In the 1970's, "we will run out of oil and gas by the end of the century!" The so called peak oil crisis. Spread by the Carter Administration and this caused untold damage to the US economy and peoples lives. This was proven false by the early 1980s.
In the 1990s, "the world in going to end because of carbon dioxide emission from energy production. i.e. Global Warming" Another falsehood that is being spread worldwide. This was so discredited in the early 2000's that they had to change the name to Climate Change because their "theories" consistently never materialized. They have been caught "faking" the numbers several times yet they call these revelations of their own doing "Climate Denial disinformation".
In the 2010's - 2020's, "The Trump Campaign colluded with Russia!" Spread by all of Social Media and the establishment media. We now know that this was a deliberate disinformation operation funded and implemented by one (Democrat) political party against another (Republican political party) and President. In 2022 evidence is revealed of the son of the Democrat candidate was engaged in a massive operation of influence peddling for money that involved his then Vice President father and current Democrat nominee. Yet the establishment Media and Social Media suppressed the story calling it Russian disinformation. Which we now know was a lie!
You can bury your head in the sand all you want but if the Left is successful suppressing and then removing their opposition, then they will have the freedom to do things that "you" don't like and then you will not have the right to speak out against them.
Remember the old saying. "When they came for the Jews, I said nothing..."
