Columbia Students Have Hardly a Clue Regarding Contents of First Amendment

Students at a prestigious university like Columbia will at least be familiar with the contents of the First Amendment — or maybe not.

Campus Reform visited the Upper West Side and discovered that the only thing more appalling than students’ lack of even basic knowledge of the Constitution is their lack of respect for it and for the liberty it enshrines:

The blathering over whether the First Amendment should apply to speech and the press even if some politically preferred minority decides to be offended by it indicates what these young fools are learning in their classes while they are not learning basics of American citizenship that grade school children would have been familiar with a century ago.

In case any Ivy Leaguers are curious, here’s the First Amendment:

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.

On a tip from Lyle.
