A dim-witted congress-critter on the left side of the aisle is at it again…this time he has another brilliant idea he’s proposed for all to see. Seems he thinks we need to amend the constitution to allow ‘Control of Speech!’…that’s right folks, the enemy within never stops when it comes to their never-ending mind control. There was a time not that long ago that I would have scoffed at this…not so much anymore. The O-Team would do anything possible to shut down dissenting opinions…let alone even spoken. This all boils down to what the Supreme Court ruled regarding ‘Citizens United.’ The left side of the aisle is going to fight this anyway possible, this time they decided to use Hank Johnson for their venue to do just that…you can be sure there will be others to join on down the road before it’s over.
Here’s the report…this is via CBS Atlanta:
ATLANTA (CBS Atlanta) – A Democratic representative is calling for an amendment to the United States Constitution that would allow for some legislative restriction of freedom of speech.
“We need a constitutional amendment that would allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations,” Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) was quoted as saying by CNS News.
He reportedly made these comments while speaking at the Annesbrooks HOA candidate Forum held last month.
In a video obtained by the website, Johnson asserts that “corporations control … patterns of thinking.”
“They control the media. They control the messages that you get,” he added. “And these folks … are setting up a scenario where they’re privatizing every aspect of our lives as we know it. So, wake up! Wake up! Let’s look at what’s happening.”
Corporations and unions are protected under the First Amendment of the Constitution because of the ruling in “Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission,” which found that a state law prohibiting corporations from making political campaign contributions using their treasury funds was unconstitutional.
The ruling additionally stated that the spending was a form of political speech that is protected by the First Amendment, according to the official blog of the Supreme Court of the United States.
“These corporations, along with the people they support, other millionaires who they’re putting into office, are stealing your government,” Johnson was quoted as saying by CNS News. “They’re stealing the government and the U.S. Supreme Court was a big enabler with the Citizens United case.”
