Democratic Congressman Lieu: ‘I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech’

December 12, 2018

  There is an old definition in politics which goes something like this: a gaffe is when a politician accidentally tells the truth. Today California Representative Ted Lieu had a bit of a gaffe of his own when he basically admitted that he would love to be able to regulate free speech if it was not for that little piece of paper we call the Constitution. Here is more:

 I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech. The First Amendment prevents me from doing so, and that’s simply a function of the First Amendment

  He does go on to say that over the long run it is probably a bad idea for the government to regulate free speech but sorry Teddy boy, you let the cat out of the bag. The truth is that many Democrats feel the same way and in fact over the years they have been stealthily successful at regulating free speech. They just call it being politically correct…

    If this statement surprises ANYONE, they should pull their head out of their @** and realize Marxism is alive and well at the university as well as the “new left” democrats. It is all spelled out, clearly in Wells “1984”. Wake up and smell the “reeducation camps”

    Changing the definition of words is a ‘way’ to manipulate thinking or forcing PC language – Police over free speech.
