Freedom of speech? Who needs it? Sure, I’ll sign that petition. Anything for the cause.
There’s a video proving that people sign the darndest things, as Mark Dice, author of "The New World Order — Facts & Fiction," hung out on a San Diego street asking people to sign a petition to repeal the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. That’s the one that protects free speech. In case you’ve forgotten what the Amendment says, here it is verbatim:
Amendment 1 – Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791.
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.
You’ll see that a couple of the people approached for signatures knew enough to not sign, but far too many bought the lines about "new world order" and "repealing a very outdated, 230-year-old law."
Dice told a woman it was her "American duty to help us out," but she resisted his pleas to sign the document.
The petition states:
"The following names on this petition represent individuals who support repealing the First Amendment to the Constitution, preventing the government from infringing on the freedom of speech and the freedom of press isn’t needed in the 21st century and prevents the president from fulfilling the goals of the Bilderberg Group and the secret establishment who desire to solidify the new world order."
Dice tells some people to go online for more information, but the site he directs them to, Citizens Against the First Amendment (www.catfa.com), does not exist. (For the record, catfa.org and catfa.net don’t exist either.)
That some people signed the petition with enthusiasm is sad and amazing.
