“‘If the freedom of speech is taken away,’ said America’s first president George Washington, ‘then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.’
His view was shared by Thomas Jefferson, a fellow Founding Father and America’s third president, who declared: ‘Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.‘
These two men helped create the initial United States Constitution and subsequent Bill of Rights that included the First Amendment which was specifically designed to protect the very freedoms they were referring to.
That Amendment states: ‘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.’
They are arguably the most important words in the entire Constitution and have afforded Americans, and American journalists, the most powerful protection for their rights to freedom of speech and expression of any country in the world.
The First Amendment is one of the things I most admire about the United States, especially coming from a country like Britain where free speech for journalists like me is now heavily regulated.
But not everyone shares my admiration.
In fact, Prince Harry has just declared the First Amendment to be ‘bonkers.’
His extraordinary outburst came during an interview he conducted with actor Dax Shephard for the ‘Armchair Expert’ podcast, during which he also launched a shameful new attack on his family. …
The British public has grown increasingly angry at Harry’s behavior, as can be seen in recent polls showing support for him and his grasping wife plummeting to record negative depths.
And now the American public is turning on him too, incensed that he is belittling their right to free speech whilst reserving the right to spew off about anything he likes.
But I doubt he either comprehends the damage he is doing, or cares.
Like his equally shameless and hypocritical wife, all Harry seems to worry about is promoting himself and making as much money as he can from the royal status that he pretends to hate but loves to commercialize. …”
Do you remember how happy everyone was for him and how they went along with Harry’s marriage to this damaged gold digger out of fear of being called racist? The racists were proven right.
“The media went into a frenzy this weekend when the bonny Prince Harry gave a huge harrumph to the First Amendment.
On a show appropriately called the “Armchair Expert,” Harry declared the First Amendment “bonkers” and expressed frustration about how it protects the media in its “feeding frenzy” over his life. Harry’s criticism of the First Amendment can be dismissed as the unfamiliarity of a royal refugee. However, it is actually far more serious than that.
Harry and his American wife Meghan Markle have attacked media rights in England and succeeded under the laws of the United Kingdom. They are now joining a growing anti-free speech movement in the United States.
It was a surprise for many to hear Harry lash out at the First Amendment. After all, Harry and Meghan are so woke, they are virtual insomniacs. However, that is the point. The First Amendment no longer holds the inviolate position it once did with the left. …”
The mainstream Right was sounding off about this last night.
Piers Morgan, Sean Hannity and Ben Domenech are correct about Harry who has been seduced and whipped by his mulatto wife. He has betrayed his own family. He is a national embarrassment.
