Hillary Clinton has a plan for overturning the First Amendment once elected. She said – correctly – that Citizens United was an attack on her. She will work to have it reversed though it will nullify the First Amendment. At least no one will be able to insult her – that’s the important thing. This is what they do in Third World and Socialist nations.
“I really respect the important point of getting money out of politics. Remember, Citizens United was an attack on me, so I take it very personally and even before Senator Sanders got into the campaign way back in April of last year, I said we are going to reverse Citizens United and if we can’t get the Supreme Court to do what I think would be the right decision, then I will lead a constitutional amendment [sic].”
Citizens United was in part about a movie critical of her that she wanted banned. The movie was Hillary the Movie.
The Supreme Court decision said the federal government couldn’t constitutionally bar the movie from being shown, regardless of whether an election campaign was in progress.
If she gets rid of Citizens United, it will allow the federal government to make it illegal to speak ill of politicians like Hillary.
The Congress tried to pass legislation to overturn Citizens United and Senator Cruz was called a liar for telling the truth — that it would remove protections for free speech in the First Amendment.
Congress has no problem giving away their powers and ours. They will do anything to preserve their elite positions.
