Trump's Election Victory Protects the First Amendment
Jun 28, 2018
A major reason that President Trump's election victory is so important is that it has allowed Trump to protect free speech at the Supreme Court level (by choosing Supreme Court justices who will protect it, which Trump is doing).
Ben Shapiro's article below shows how horrifyingly close America is to the complete abolishment of the First Amendment. If Free Speech dies, American Freedom dies. The "Land of the Free" will be gone.
If that happens, tyranny will take its place. It may seem fine now, to people on one side of the political aisle. But remember, as time goes on, Tyranny Eats Its Own. Identity Politics is a snake that will eat its own children because it is based on the ever-changing "winds of offense." Today's hate-speech policeman will be tomorrow's criminal.
Here's Shapiro's excellent article:
