Restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us. ~William O. Douglas, 1952

The First Amendment is under attack.

Senators Chuck Schumer and Lindsey Graham, leading members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, have attached an amendment to Senate Bill 987 that would give the Department of Justice power to determine who qualifies for protection as a journalist under the First Amendment. Apparently, the plain language of the Constitution is confusing to this tyrannical brain trust:

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.

This brazenly imperious move is the product of American citizens being so poorly educated on the Constitution that they have allowed a creeping tyranny for decades—of course autocrats and despots are emboldened at this point. Set aside the fact that the Constitution does not limit free speech to the press; it also clearly does not give government the authority to define who qualifies as“the press”—reporting is an act, not a membership in a government-sanctioned club.
