Democrat Senator Proclaims That First Amendment Does Not Apply to Individuals

Disingenuous authoritarians will sometimes pretend that the Second Amendment does not honor an individual right to bear arms, but only a group right — that is, only well-regulated militias have a right to bear arms. Why stop at the Second Amendment? Publicly homosexual Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) wants to use the same fallacy to destroy what’s left of the First:

Baldwin said she thinks that business owners, like those that own a bakery, should not be allowed to turn down serving homosexuals gay wedding cakes because of religious beliefs because businesses like that are not considered institutions of faith.

“Certainly the first amendment says that in institutions of faith that there is absolute power to, you know, to observe deeply held religious beliefs. 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.”

In other words: maybe a church has a First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion, but that doesn’t mean you do.

Individual liberty is the bedrock principle upon which this nation was founded, and the reason it grew to be strong. Liberal utopia cannot be achieved until it has been eradicated.

If progressives were more patient, they wouldn’t bother gutting the First Amendment. After another generation of liberal control of education, no one will know what it says anyway. Already only 19% know that the First Amendment secures our right to freedom of religion.

Tammy-Baldwin-pervert
Not good news for individual liberty.

On tips from Bill T, Wilberforce, and DinaRehn.

    Why do they even mention the Constitution anymore. It was written by rich old white racists 1000 years ago and therefore the whole thing needs to be trashed and replaced by something more up to date that reflects modern “society” and all of its wonderful diversity. I’m just waiting for a Leftist bigwig to say exactly those words-should be about any day now.

    Isn’t that funny? You would think that a homosexual would understand the importance of individual freedom better than anyone. How does she think her gay rights movement got started without individual freedom of speech?
    What an ingrate.

    Being gay isn’t her essential orientation. She’s a leftist, i.e., a totalitarian. In this light, her stance isn’t surprising.

    The overwhelming majority of Americans are either too stupid to understand this or too cowardly to stand against it. If that were not true, totalitarian progressive fascists like Tammy would never get elected.

    Make no mistake, her homosexuality is her admission ticket to the inner circle but her fascistic ideals is why the party supports her.

    Jimmy Carter: ‘Jesus would approve gay marriage’

    Jesus would approve of same-sex marriage, former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday.

    “I believe Jesus would approve gay marriage, but that’s just my own personal belief,” the Democrat said in an interview on HuffPost Live.

    “I think Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone else, and I don’t see that gay marriage damages anyone else,” he added.

    Supporters have hailed the Supreme Court’s June 26 decision to strike down state bans on same-sex marriage and legalize it across the country, while opponents have blasted the 5-4 decision as judicial overreach.

    Carter, 90, has stepped out for several interviews to promote his new book, which was published Tuesday.

    Then you need to be prepared to fight because totalitarian fascists will not permit dissent.

    You may have seen me post this before:

    I will not comply,
    I will not obey their laws,
    I will not fund their agenda,
    I will not recognize their authority,
    I will not surrender.

    Before you choose this path, be prepared for combat. Equip, arm and train, the fight is upon you.

    When there is no power or gas to heat a home or food to buy in stores, Moonbats like her are certain to perish first. They have had things done for them by others for so long they cannot wipe their own ass let alone survive rough times. I relish the day they come. There will be no TV or internet to show the demise of the liberal ruling class But history has shown us that they will not survive. And it’s never pretty.

    It’s interesting that liberals can find the individual right to same sex marriage in the 14th Amendment, (that no justice on prior to this year found), but can’t find the individual right to exercise religious freedom or can’t find the individual right to bear arms in the 2nd Amendment..And don’t realize that the first ten amendments to The Constitution are called The Bill of Rights and not The Collective Bill of Rights…

    We could put a stop to all this nonsense simply by going to a Muslim Bakery and demanding that they agree to make us a gay wedding cake with a picture of Mohamed on it.
    Next we should go to a Muslim Grocery store and demand that they sell us pork chops and a case of beer.
    Then we should flag down a Muslim taxi driver and demand that he drives us with our beer, pork chops and Islamic-Gay Wedding cake to a gay bar to celebrate.
    Finally, when the Muslims refuse to comply, we should launch law suits against the taxi cab company, the bakery, and the Halal Grocery Store, and wait for a Judge to declare that the Muslims have a right to refuse our demands on the grounds of religious freedom.

    Bingo, a new precedent will be established that will allow businesses and individuals to refuse services on religious grounds.

    52% of the actual voters which were only 57.5% of the eligible voters. Meaning that only about 26% of the electorate voted this asshole into office. That is around 95M people or less than 30% of the population. Statistically about 49% of them are male and 20% of that number is over 50 leaving a potential force of 36M minus any that are disabled or over 300lbs. At least 15% will fall into that category so at most they have a force of 30M

    Only real question is, how many of that 30M are willing to give their lives for the Progressive Fascist cause.
