Is There Anything About the Constitution Hillary Clinton Doesn’t Want to Change?
Hillary Clinton recently said that religious beliefs have to be changed for abortion.
Wherever you are on the issue of abortion, that statement should send chills down your spine because it goes to the heart of our constitutionally protected rights on faith.
As if that isn’t bad enough, Hillary is also going after free speech.
From today’s Wall Street Journal…
Hillary’s Constitutional Aversion to Criticism
Candidate Clinton signs on to the campaign to rewrite the First Amendment to limit political speech.
Progressivism’s ever-tightening grip on the Democratic Party is on full display in Hillary Clinton’s presidential platform. Starting with her kickoff speech in Iowa, and in subsequent venues across the country, she spoke of her campaign’s “four fights,” one of which is a constitutional amendment on campaign finance. This marks Mrs. Clinton as an adherent to one of the newest and most fervently held tenets of modern progressive teaching: Citizens United v. FEC is an evil that must be destroyed at any cost.
Yet it’s worth dwelling on that cost. Recent history demonstrates that the anti-Citizens United campaign quickly devolves into an assault on the First Amendment and a free and fair electoral system.
In a sense, it’s fitting that Mrs. Clinton supports efforts to overturn the Supreme Court’s 2010 ruling that dealt with the right to buy television ads for a movie that criticized her. The constitutional amendment she wants could return American elections to where they were in 2008, when her opponents and critics were often muzzled in the public square.
George Will recently pointed out how stunning this is…
I hope our listeners heard her that one of her four fundamental goals is to change the First Amendment to empower the political class to write legislation restricting the quantity, content and timing of political speech about the political class. I don’t think anyone has ever announced running for president that they wanted to change the Bill of Rights.
Here’s the video.
Let that sink in.
I’ll leave you with this parting thought…
