Defending the Constitution, First Amendment Edition

By now you have probably seen the photo of the midnight raid in which the maker of the film which is allegedly causing the “ruckus” in the Middle East was “politely” “requested” to “go downtown and answer a few questions”. The photo itself begs to be captioned, and this being the 21st century, voila, instant Quick Meme, entitled, “Defend the Constitution.”

All the captions pointedly call out the blatant disregard of the officials of our First Amendment rights (as far as I know, we don’t have any anti-blashpemy laws on the books… yet). But of all the images listed at the link, I think I found this one the most disturbing:

As you recall, the very next day after the Ambassador was murdered, President Obama jetted off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser. And these days, our leaders are spinning like crazy by insisting, in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary, that the Cairo and Libya uprisings were simply spontaneous outpourings of indignation against a ridiculously crappy 15-minute video trailer, which had been online and available for protesting for at least a month prior.

As I mentioned in a tweet yesterday, when there is gun violence, the Left blames guns and tries to quash the Second Amendment. This is simply the logical next step… An American diplomat is murdered, the Left blames a video and tries to quash the First Amendment.

Unrest in the Middle East, murdered Americans, attempts to trample our basic rights. This isn’t over yet.

    Hear! Hear! But it just isn’t the Left usurping the Constitution. It’s all of the “Gang of 535” in Washington, DC!

      DT, you’re right that the fault for this lies with both parties. However there is only one party in power right now, and it seems to be doing its level best to trash our Constitution, one breach at a time.

      • DT says:


        True. But even the Party who is out of power goes along with the usuping. Thus, they are both the SAME in govening against the Will of the People. They are the Political Crime Families working together against us – the People!

    When you really analyze both Parties, the main beef I have with them is their lack of integrity. Most people don’t vote because they see it plain as day.

    And yes. You and I can try to infuse integrity into the process by participating, but the “Establishment” who vets these candidates always forces us to compromise. Essentially, they let us down. I don’t know about you, but I just can’t go along with that.

    Mitt Romney has to be THE WORST Candidate the Republicans could have put forth to run against Obama. The man is the “poster child” for lacking integrity. And because of this, Obama will easily win this Election – which sucks! It will be John McCain 2008 all over again.

      That’s interesting, DT, because the more I read about Mitt Romney, the more I find to like about him.

      They say you can tell a lot about a man by how he behaves when nobody’s looking. Stacking up Romney and Obama side by side, one is a humble man who does good deeds because he feels incumbent upon himself to do so, and the other wouldn’t stop to greet a wounded soldier unless there were cameras recording it. I trust I don’t have to clarify which is which.

      I recommend you read this article to find out more about what kind of man our next President is: Mitt Romney, Friend In Need.

        Take a Step back from all that the Candidates say – and understand that what they’re saying is what they think you want to hear. Then, and only then, you’ll discover that it’s nothing but “Theater”.

        A Candidate’s Voting “Record” has meaning. It means that no matter what a Candidate “says” to get elected – the Voting Record is how he/she will govern.

        I keep saying it over and over. Romney and Obama are the SAME!
