Sen. Baldwin Wants You to Know You Don’t Have a First Amendment


Sen. Tammy Baldwin, Democrat from Wisconsin and member of the leftist Congressional Progressive Caucus, said in an appearance on MSNBC that we don’t have First Amendment rights as individuals, only institutions and businesses have those rights.

She said this:

“Certainly the first amendment says that in institutions of faith that there is absolute power to, you know, to observe deeply held religious beliefs. But I don’t think it extends far beyond that. We’ve seen the set of arguments play out in issues such as access to contraception. Should it be the individual pharmacist whose religious beliefs guides whether a prescription is filled, or in this context, they’re talking about expanding this far beyond our churches and synagogues to businesses and individuals across this country. I think there are clear limits that have been set in other contexts and we ought to abide by those in this new context across America.”

They’re trying to extend the First Amendment to individuals!!! Leftists want a redo on the Constitution so they make it fit their ideology.

Thanks for your interpretation of the First Amendment Tammy but I’ll stick with the Founding Fathers’ version.

The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting …

We are clearly entitled to the free exercise of religion in the United States and it has been upheld by the Supreme Court.



      • No these are Marxists who got elected on populist lies in the state of Wisconsin and elsewhere I suppose. like Obama they are bent on America’;s destruction through all services use for disintegration of society. remember that Marxism believes you have to start from a ground level to rebuild their version of society and with them it never moves fro extreme poverty.

    • Part of the new left of Mr Chissomes crowd where it is ok to invade cionservative homes in the middle of the night and badger then day adftet day. A veritable INQUISITION against Republicans in general and Gov. Walker in in specific terms…………… THis is where the Democrat party has left the Constitution forever and must be eliminated period.

      • I think that’s a constitution a new amendment anyone who doesn’t believe in the Constitution should be put off on a rowboat no ors with the current heading towards where the Navy does gunnery practice witch mean good luck.

    • The Dummicrats, Welfare fraud, Obama phone, laziass voted her in, where do they get these people, from across the border, slums, and D.C. nitwits!

  1. We really need to or should start screening these people for mental illness before they take any office.

    • OH! I got the answer! We do mug shots, finger prints, NCIC background checks and a “Are You Smarter Than A Fifht Grader” aptitude test! That ought to weed out the “dumb and dumbet numbers of the leadership of this Country!

  2. As a Senator it would seem Ms Bldwin would know the provision for amending the Constitution is in the document itself. It is NOT by Executive edict or a comment from a Senator. It would be interesting to hear her comments on the 10th Amendment.

  3. Another liberal whack job opens her mouth and removes all doubt about whether she’s an idiot or not.

  4. Senator Baldwin should no better but she is trying to interpet the ist amd. to suit her purposes,. Un fourtunatly its the same admendment that gives her the right to free speech to say the stupid things that says.

  5. SCOTUS , has not ruled on a Senator’s right, to interpretation yet, infringement. “possible”, but none the less, they may welcome unsolicited interpretations, when fortune cookies are read.

  6. REALLY? Well Ms. Dummicrats, I don’t know what Constitution you took an Oath to uphold and protect, it must be the Obama Socialist Party and the United States of Obomanation! Get out of office before the men in White Coats take you back to the “home”! The day the 1st Amendment DOES NOT belong to all the people as in ” WE THE PEOPLE”, you and your cronie Democratic fiens will be in Concentration Camp called GITMO, remember that place? I do, I worked there once upon a time! And you are not going to like it there! Water boarding is NOT the same as surf boarding!

  7. Remember, a lot of people had to vote for this woman in order for her to get elected, so she isn’t the only one who needs more education. Voting rights should hinge on an IQ test… at her level, she nor her base could participate.

  8. I think she is stating individuals and businesses do not have this right.
    Give the paragraph above another reading.
    This person does not believe in freedom.
    She wants us to abide by her new context.
    How absurd, how totalitarian.
