The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prevents the government from making laws which regulate an establishment of religion, prohibit the free exercise of religion, or abridge the freedom of speech, the freedom of the press, the right to peaceably assemble, or the right to petition the government for redress of grievances. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, as one of the ten amendments that constitute the Bill of Rights.
It is this amendment by which all others become functional.
Not only may the government not impose upon your right of free speech or peaceably assemble, the government may not even stop you in the act of stating your grievances directly to the government itself.
This amendment clearly defines the limits of the federal government in the region of religion, and basically the government has no jurisdiction whatsoever.
It does not grant radical groups the ability to carry out violence or threats of violence against others or the nation, but it protects all peaceful religious views and assembly.
This of course is the "grey area" that has become the bed of Jezebel where far-left leaning policy makers distort the definition of violence to rob you of your civil liberties.
Since it's passing the definition of violence was understood by all, as was a threat of violence as well. You could stand on a corner and yell at people at the top of your lungs anything and everything you wished to convey, as long as you committed nor threatened to commit violence.
Your message could be heard or ignored, and as hurtful as the content could possibly be, the government had no power to stop you. The Left was not satisfied with this clear definition that had been grandfathered into federal and local laws, and they introduced violence against "someone's feelings".
The anti-bullying movement started as seemingly harmless enough. Laws would be enacted to prevent classroom bullies from intimidating your children online or in the classroom. These laws gained public support, and the rest is history.
Today we actually have laws that prohibit one from calling illegal aliens by name in some states, they prefer to be called undocumented workers or immigrants.
To call them anything else it racist and hate speech, according to some law makers.
The gay community has their own standards, and to call them anything but a series of letters just seems too hateful for their taste as well.
Society has become so afraid to be labeled as a "Hate group" and suffer the consequences, that we allow Muslims to openly condemn us to Islamification and Sharia conquest while we are supposed to gleefully support them for using their free speech by limiting our own?
Minorities are compelled and supported to speak up and demonstrate under the amendment, while open threats of violence and sometimes altercations are widely overlooked. The self hating leftists see themselves as deserving of punishment, and to state otherwise is a sign of "radical white nationalism" to them.
This country was founded on Judaeo-Christian values, they are evident in the writings of our founding documents. It was these exact values that have held this country together and made it the strongest and just country that generations have fought to defend.
Yet today, quoting a passage from our common bible is seen as hateful?
Are leftist lawmakers so bold as to reprimand God for hate speech, and prohibit the quoting of his word?
To remove your liberties, the left needed to remove God from society, and they have been systematically doing so quietly under the disguise of "public education" for years.
This nation has produced a couple of generations of increasingly Godless young adults.
Our "God given rights" are being replaced with "Executive privileges" that can be regulated by the state.
Liberties in our great nation are now at stake.
Under the first amendment, we have a right to petition the government for redress of grievances. As American Patriots, we need to exercise that right.
