SPEECH, PRESS, and the CONSTITUTION

Updated: Dec 23, 2020

Immediately after the first part on Religion of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, it provides freedom of speech and freedom of the press.


Here is the language in the Constitution:

"Congress shall make no law... abridging the freedom of speech,

The Congress (House of Representatives and Senate) can make no law to control or stop the

people's speech.

Or of the press;

The Congress (House of Representatives and Senate) can make no law to control or stop news media (newspapers, magazines, radio, TV, etc) from doing their work."


One of the fundamental rights we have as Americans is the ability/right to freedom of speech. If our speech is stopped for any reason by the government, we should fight to keep that right.


Section 230 - which gives social media platforms the right to control what people say or do on their platforms - is a law set out by the Congress (House of Representatives and Senate). This has given platforms such as Google, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and many others, the ability to censor our speech as Americans.


We are being censored for having an opinion that does not flow with the narratives approved by these tech giants. This, my friends, is a slap in the face to our Constitution and we should not allow our speech to be removed, censored, or blacklisted.


For those of us who are conservative, faith-filled, and constitutionalists, we have a target on our backs. Our speech is not allowed on certain platforms - and that was made so by the laws set forth by Congress. We should demand Section 230 be repealed immediately and these tech giants forced to give us the ability to respectfully share our viewpoints even if they are not the viewpoints they deem truthful.


If you feel you have been censored, or have been censored, you have a target on your back. Head over to our store and share your story with others.
