5 Minute Mind – Freedom of (not from) Speech
This is a writing sprint. Please excuse spelling and grammatical errors.
A lot of talk here in the states abouilt ol amedment 1. No need to rehash it fully, but you’re unfamiliar with what is going on soon to be ousted Donald Trump and many of his supported feel their first amendment rights, freedom of speech, are being trampled on.
I will paste the amendment below after the timer expires. What I felt like saying here though is no one hass stoped him or his followers from saying what they want. What their true argument is, wven when they don’t come out and say it, is they want to be able to say what they want to say but not be responsible for it.
Its not just Trumpo followers, rather many people from many different walks of life, who feel the first amednment enshrines them with a constitutional armor to protect them from conseqwuences for what they say. Hate toi burst their bubble, but it doesn’t work that way. Also, the first amendment protects you from the government trampling on that right, now a
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.
