51% of Americans believe First Amendment should be rewritten

This is scary. But not surprising.

The rights and freedoms previous generations fought for are under attack (think Second Amendment). They always will be by progressives who want to silence those who disagree with them. That’s the only way they can apparently win an argument.

And that’s the only way to ensure that feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelings are not hurt.

The Campaign for Free Speech released results of a recent poll that show the following:

51% of Americans think the First Amendment is outdated and should be rewritten. The First Amendment protects your right to free speech, free assembly, and freedom of religion, among other things.

48% believe “hate speech” should be illegal. (“Hate speech” is not defined—we left it up to the individual participant.) Of those, about half think the punishment for “hate speech” should include possible jail time, while the rest think it should just be a ticket and a fine.

80% don’t actually know what the First Amendment really protects. Those polled believed this statement is true: “The First Amendment allows anyone to say their opinion no matter what, and they are protected by law from any consequences of saying those thoughts or opinions.”

Go here for their full survey results.

80 percent don’t know what the first amendement protects. Obviously the survey participants weren’t MENSA members. Knowledge of the Bill of Rights is pretty fundamental. The masses apparently are ignorant of it along with most everything else. I wonder how they would react to Voltaire proclaiming, I disapprove of what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it. Actually he probably didn’t say that, it was more likely attributable to one of his biographers. That’s just as well because today he’d be arrested for hate speech. As would Jesus Christ

I totally disagree. ALL MUST remain as is, that’s the way our Forefathers designed it and we must honor their will for us. Nothing, but nothing is to be changed. Hate speech was introduced to separate and conquer. I respect others opinions and if disagreed I pickup and move on not as a loser but knowing I am able to rise above with my convictions intact.

This is interesting on many levels. Growing up believing in the “Red White and blue and Freedom” i would say these ppl are brain dead. Realizing now that our dear founders where all free Masonic satanists, Madison was controlled and owned by Lord Rothschild, and reading the Protocols I wonder if it all was a big joke.

Do these 51% unAmericans realize it’s the First Amendment that enables them to tell pollsters they want the First Amendment to be rewritten?

Since 80 percent of them weren’t aware that the 1st amendment protects freedom of expression the answer is no. That bit of irony is way, way over their empty heads. We must assume that at least some of these people vote, and that’s truly frightening

I would challenge this poll, but after a loved one left his college after one semester as a history major, I have been shocked by what he encountered. He was shunned for trying to stick to the subject of history instead of giving in to relentless unrelated indoctrination. What’s more, he was verbally attacked and insulted by his wealthy and privileged classmates for the unforgivable offense being a white male who would not indulge in obligatory self-loathing. Most of our liberal arts colleges have become engines of leftist indoctrination at this moment in history. So it’s not so much of… Read more »

My son experienced the same thing at University. He left as well.
