For the record: Barack – “We’re gonna punish our enemies” – Obama spent his entire national career pivoting from complaining about meanness and tribalism to practicing it. After building his occupation of the White House around tribal politics, cynical lies, and dividing Americans, he’s back to pretending to deplore it. ~ Daniel Greenfield, FrontPageMag
To which Elon Musk has lately outed himself as a “free speech absolutist”, making “Obwana” perhaps, a little jealous of a guy who everyone agrees is cooler than he is.
The real narcissistic problem with “Obwana” is that he’s a stupid lazy fascist who won’t even think about putting in the hard work necessary in attempting to repeal the 1st (not to mention 2nd) amendment. And of course such an effort would be doomed to failure at the state level, with fascists simply not putting up with that. So instead, he calls for illegally violating the 1st (not to mention 2nd) amendment, simply because otherwise stupid lazy fascists will be subjected to having to let other people exercise their constitutional rights – and fascists will kill you first. Or something!
“Obwana” remember, weaponized the IRS against his opponents (including yours truly) and if his name had been Nixon he would’ve been prosecuted if not impeached. But there you go.
The provision in Amendment 1 for United States citizens to assemble peaceably appears innocuous. But is it really harmless to give sodomites, infanticide advocates, and Satanists the right to assemble peacefully? If you’re a proponent of the Constitution and a defender of Amendment 1, you must also champion the rights of such criminals and anti-Christians to assemble and promote their wicked agendas. Don’t you?
Homosexuals and infant assassins claim freedom of speech and the right to assemble to combat Christians who speak out or assemble against these heinous people and their brazen debauchery. By labeling what Christians do as hate crimes, these immoral people are able to employ Amendment 1 against Christians speaking and/or assembling against these atrocities. Fact.
To cut to the chase, Robert Spencer, FrontPageMag: ‘Barack Obama Comes Out Against the First Amendment’ …
Once again, the authoritarian heart of the Left is revealed.
One would think that a former president of the United States would be a staunch defender of the First Amendment. When it comes to Barack Obama, however, you’d think wrong. Obama spoke Wednesday at an event sponsored by The Atlantic and the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics, “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy.” In the course of a long and rambling discussion with The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, Obama called for government control over the Internet in order to stem the “demand for crazy” that was spreading what he called “disinformation.” As Leftists always do, Obama claimed that this “disinformation” was threatening “our democracy,” that is, the Left’s political and cultural hegemony.
Obama first insisted, with his characteristic near-incoherence: “I am close to a First Amendment absolutist. I believe in the idea of not just free speech, but also that you deal with bad speech with good speech, that you engage, um, that, that, that, that the exceptions to that are very narrow, um, and, and, and, y’know, particularly, uh, among this cohort of folks in college, and I’ve talked to my daughters about this, um, y’know, I don’t want us to be such a society of manners that, like, we can’t, we feel like our feelings are hurt and we can’t hear something that, uh, somebody says, and, and, and we wilt. Uh, I think, uh, I want us all as citizens to be in the habit of being able to hear stuff that we disagree with and be able to answer with our words.” His First Amendment absolutism, however, only went so far.
After a good bit more rambling, Obama got around to asserting that in order to limit the spread of what he called “toxic information,” it would be “reasonable for us as a society to have a debate, and then to put in place a combination of regulatory measures and, uh, industry norms, uh, that leave intact the opportunity for these platforms to make money, but say to them that, there, there, there’s certain practices that we are not, that we don’t think are good for our society and we’re gonna discourage.” There goes the First Amendment. [-]
[+] … If the government had regulatory measures in place controlling “disinformation,” we might still not know about Hunter’s laptop, or the 10% he set aside for “The Big Guy” from his influence-peddling, or how the COVID virus originated, or about a host of other issues. Nowadays the guardians of acceptable opinion are flagging as “disinformation” any assertions that men are men and women are women and that one cannot turn into the other. How is that going to look once a bit of sanity returns to society?
Obama, the self-proclaimed near-absolutist on free speech should know all this and should have explained it to Goldberg. Instead, he once again revealed the authoritarian heart of the establishment Left. [end]

Without the parameters of the Bible’s moral law, the First Amendment has proven to be a toxic brew. For example, Amendment 1 condemns the prohibition of speech, whether spoken or written. Does the Bible provide for free speech or does it limit speech? What about freedom of speech and freedom of the press as it concerns Yahweh Himself. Mmmm?
Does God grant us freedom to curse Him or blaspheme His name? GOD forbid!
On the other hand, freedom of speech and freedom of the press is used to provide protection for those who promote false religions, in utero infanticide, sodomy, drug abuse, violence, obscenities, and other abominations condemned by Yahweh.
The hateful narcissist aka OBO#44. Help us Lord for the Godly man ceaseth!
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – Warrior-president Donald John Trump – MAGA! KAG!
