WATCH: College Officials Caught on Video Threatening to ARREST Conservatives Handing Out Constitutions

Photo Credit: ARCHIVES.GOVThe First Amendment, particularly the freedom of political speech, is under assault in our country.

Democrats in Congress are trying to amend the First Amendment and place limits campaign financing, which is recognized as free speech. Fortunately, they have met with resistance in the Senate.

The attack on free speech is mostly evident though in the new creation of so-called “First Amendment zones” or “designated free speech areas”, which are designed to contain and constrain legitimate protests and expressions of political dissent.

College and High School campuses have been just as bad, if not worse, in their efforts to control political speech. A high school recently confiscated American flags from students on the anniversary of 9/11, and the University of Wyoming has PREVENTED a student who is an Army veteran from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, as it might be “offensive” to some students.

This politically correct push to not offend anyone is actually offensive in and of itself. It is also the driving force behind the restrictive “speech codes” found on most liberal COLLEGE CAMPUSES these days. Such is the case at Penn State University, where students were prevented from handing out Constitutions on Constitution Day, according to Breitbart.
