"The Chronological Encylopedia of Discoveries in Space is no passionless compendium of information.

Fascists: The Democratic Party’s proposed constitutional amendment to limit free speech.

More than 40 Senate Democrats have signed on to a constitutional amendment proposed by Senator Tom Udall’s (D., N.M.) that would fundamentally alter the right to free speech. Republicans are attacking the proposal, which would “give Congress clear authority in the Constitution to regulate the campaign finance system,” even though it has absolutely no chance of becoming a reality.

Key quote at the end:

It’s a reflection of today’s Democratic disrespect for free speech that an attempt would even be made. There was a time, not too long ago, when free speech was a bipartisan commitment.

It is important to note that this amendment is not being proposed by the fringe of the Democratic Party, but is endorsed by more than two-thirds of the party’s members in the Senate. It is in the mainstream of the liberal community, a community that increasingly relishes the idea of squelching free speech and blacklisting individuals because of their opinions.

    We have come a long way from the idea that freedom of speech is so important that it must apply to the most objectionable things like masturbating in libraries and burning flags.

    We now live in a society where many people believe that “offensive” speech must be prohibited, even though that definition is being applied hypocritically. But our founders knew, as perhaps more people will again realize with time, that offensive speech must be protected, because if it is not, it becomes the path to tyranny — which is where we have arrived.

    Why would non offensive speech need protection?

    The Democratic Party should rename itself the Communist Party since they both believe in no freedom of speech! How many Communist countries have Democratic in their name when their repressive government is anything but democratic?
