The Left Going After the First Amendment: Are We Done For?

First Amendment

Why do they think they can kill the First Amendment?

That story about California’s proposed legislation to ban “fake news”–by which they mean any reportage or commentary that they, the exalted rulers, don’t like–has inspired some gloomy thoughts among my friends. Because the leftid Bad Guys are acting like they have every expectation of getting away with it.

Why do they think they can kill the First Amendment?

Well, say some, they’ve just about completed the job of indoctrinating and radicalizing the young people of every Western country, and now all they have to do is wait for us old folks to die out–maybe even give us a little push in that direction. Keeping tabs on the colleges as we do, it’s hard to argue against that point. They really have done the job, and we have not only let them do it–we have bloody well paid them to do it!

I have a pessimistic nature; but I also have a duty to believe in God, and that the Judge of all the earth will do right. I cannot believe that God is prepared to hand over His whole creation to His enemies. Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against His anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and vex them in His sore displeasure… (Psalm 2:1-5)

You don’t want to be in their shoes when the Lord stops laughing.

That day is already marked on His calendar.
