I’m Dreaming of an Uncensored Christmas

Annie Peterson | Civil Patriot 

This Christmas, instead of wishing for that latest, greatest iPhone or tablet, perhaps we should be asking for something that will last for generations to come—the right to freely speak our minds in the public square without fear of censorship or reproach. It is our constitutional right, after all. 

When our forefathers adopted the First Amendment to the Constitution in 1791 they couldn’t see into the future. They could never have fathomed a world so intimately connected by the Internet. And they certainly couldn’t have imagined a situation where one could post hastily written words to a social media platform and blast them out across the globe in mere seconds. 

Though they couldn’t envision any of those things, our forefathers could predict one thing: free speech was (and is) worth preserving and protecting. This is clear in the wording of the First Amendment to the Constitution: 

“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.”

Take a look at the line related to freedom of speech. There we learn that no laws (rules) are to be made “abridging” (curtailing, reducing, restricting) our freedom of speech. 

Consider for a moment,  what Big Tech is doing to conservatives. They’re making arbitrary “rules” to restrict what we say. And they’re doing it all while enjoying special immunity under Section 230 (federal legislation passed more than 20 years ago to protect media companies from being sued for content on their site). Because they are enjoying legislative privileges, it can be reasoned that they are working in tandem with Congress to silence us. This, of course, is in direct violation to the First Amendment and it’s something we cannot sit idly by and watch. Our very government is working to silence us. 

They might as well say, “Shut up and go home,

conservatives. We’ve pressed the mute button.” 

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night. 

Our founding fathers would be rolling over in their graves! Two of them, (George Mason and James Madison) were credited with the authorship of the Bill of Rights. Can you imagine what they would think, if they could slip through a portal in time and land in 21st Century America? Instead of giving us pats on the back for all of our modern marvels, would they, instead, weep over how far we’ve drifted from the Constitution? If they took the time to figure out platforms like YouTube and Twitter, would they recoil in horror at the revelation that our rights were being stolen?  

This Christmas, let’s ask for the spirit of Mason and Madison to permeate our hearts. Their concept of unabridged speech is one we all need to adopt and enjoy. May we never forget the original intent of the First Amendment. If we do, our children and grandchildren—and all who call themselves conservative—may well lose their voices forever.

  1. AT THIS TIME OF CHRISTMAS I FIND IT SAD THAT THIS IS BEING SAID AND WRITTEN. WE HAVE REACHED A NEXUS WHERE THE DECISION IS NOT TO THINK OF THE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION IT IS HOW DO WE FIGHT FOR IT. SOMETHING WE NEVER HAD TO DO BEFORE AND SOMETHING WE HAVE ALL TAKEN FOR GRANTED. THE COUNTRY IS IN TURMOIL AND ON THE VERGE OF COLLAPSE AND NOBODY SEEMS TO KNOW WHAT TO DO. INSTEAD OF OUT CRY AND INDIGNATION WE SEE WHIMPERS OF RESISTANCE. WHEN POLITICIANS STAND UP AGAINST THE TYRANNY THEY ARE USUALLY ALONE. WE NEED TO COME TOGETHER IN A WAY WE NEVER HAVE BEFORE. WE NEED BLACK AND WHITE, JEW AND GENTILE, CHRISTIAN AND MUSLUM, TO DROP THEIR PETTY DIFFERENCES AND COME TOGETHER AGAIN, LIKE WE NEVER HAVE BEFORE. WE ARE ALL BEING PLAYED AGAINST EACH OTHER BY MASTERS OF THE GAME. NEVER BEFORE HAVE WE FACED AN ADVERSARY SO POWERFUL, SO INFLUENTIAL, WITH SUCH UNLIMITED RESOURCES AND AS OF YET, SO INVISIBLE. WE HAVE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON, THEY KNOW HOW TO FIGHT THEM AND THEY KNOW WHO THEY ARE. THE EX-MILITARY PEOPLE SHOULD RECOGNIZE OUR OWN TACTICS THAT ARE BEING USED AGAINST US. WE NOW NEED THOSE PEOPLE TO STEP UP, SPEAK OUT AND LEAD. WE NEED TO KNOW WHO THEY ARE, WHERE THEY LIVE AND HOW TO COUNTER THEM AND WE NEED TO KNOW IT NOW. I SIT HERE WRITING THIS KNOWING THOSE PEOPLE EXIST MAYBE GENERAL FLYNN OR GENERAL MCINERNEY I PRAY YOU STEP FORWARD AND LEAD US THIS USELESS AND FUTILE FEELING INSIDE THE COUNTRY AND OURSELVES IS KILLING ME, I WOULD RATHER DIE FIGHTING THAN SITTING. GOD BLESS, PROTECT AND GUIDE US ALL AND LORD SEND SOME ONE TO SAVE THIS BLESSED COUNTRY.
