I could ask that question this way; do you favor individual liberty and freedom, or do you favor tyrannical government? A republic supports individual liberty and freedom. In our Constitutional Republic, the United States Constitution is the Supreme Ruler of the Land. The Constitution over rules a law passed by congress and signed by the executive, it over rules an executive order or a regulation from the executive branch, it over rules a judicial opinion, even of the Supreme Court, and it over rules the majority of any body.
Our founders rejected democracy because as they explained, it is a dictatorship where the majority of some ruling body can take rights from any group it desires. Democracy always leads to tyranny. Lenin explained that democracy is indispensable to socialism and socialism is the gateway to communism. Communism is the ultimate of tyranny because it controls every aspect of society.
The Democrat party has become the Communist Party of the United States. It is their desire to transform the United States to a democracy, so socialism and communism become a reality in our country.
From John Whitehead, “In totalitarian regimes—a.k.a. police states—where conformity and compliance are enforced at the end of a loaded gun, the government dictates what words can and cannot be used. In countries where the police state hides behind a benevolent mask and disguises itself as tolerance, the citizens censor themselves, policing their words and thoughts to conform to the dictates of the mass mind.”
Tyrants employe censorship, control of the media, and criminalize speech they oppose. So the United States would remain a free nation, the First Amendment was made a part of the Bill of Rights and added to the Constitution, which in our Constitutional Republic is the Supreme Ruler of the Land. The First Amendment: “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.”
Our freedom of speech cannot be abridged. That would mean that freedom of speech is absolute. Congress is the only branch of government that has the authority to make a law and according to the Supreme Ruler of the Land, but to abridge our freedom of speech is totally of limits even to congress.
In their quest to transform the United States into a communist nation, the Democrat party pays no heed to the Constitution, in fact they have at times openly said the Constitution should be rejected. Woodrow Wilson said that our traditional understanding of the U.S. Constitution should give way to what he considered the new realities of modern government.
The Democrats have introduced an anti-freedom, anti-free speech, anti-First Amendment, and anti-American bill aimed at fighting “white supremacy” by attaching criminal charges to certain forms of hate speech. Its purpose is “to prevent and prosecute white supremacy inspired hate crime and conspiracy to commit white supremacy inspired hate crime.”
The conspiracy addition means people who use hate speech online could face criminal charges under the legislation even if they don’t act on their threats. That includes a person who publishes “material advancing white supremacy, white supremacist ideology, antagonism based on ‘replacement theory,’ or hate speech that vilifies or is otherwise directed against any non-white person or group.”
The text of the bill specifically lists social media platforms as one area where hate speech could result in criminal consequences — if that hate speech motivates another person to go out and commit a racist crime against others. Terms such as hate speech, or white supremacy are not defined.
This bill proposes would be what was seen in nations like the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Communist China, Communist Albania, Communist Cuba, and on and on. The Democrats are very comfortable with this bill and want it to become law.
Under our republic, it could not become a law. In a democracy it could if the “majority” approves it. Do you favor Republic or Democracy?
