Cruz: 42 Democrats Have Signed On To Repeal the First Amendment

Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) again criticized Democrats for attacking the First Amendment Tuesday on The Kelly File, saying “42 Democrats have signed on to repeal” the right to free speech.

“That is contrary to the most fundamental protections our democracy’s built on,” he said.

Cruz also skewered Democrats earlier Tuesday at the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“Forty-two Democrats have signed their name to a constitutional amendment that would give Congress the power to muzzle Planned Parenthood and the National Right to Life,” he said. “42 Democrats have signed their name to giving Congress the right to muzzle the Sierra Club, to muzzle the the National Rifle Association and the Brady Center on Handgun Violence. To muzzle Michael Moore and Dinesh D’Souza. To muzzle the Teamsters and the National Education Association. To muzzle the NAACP. To muzzle the Anti-Defamation League. To muzzle pastors and priests and rabbis who organize their parishioners to be involved in politics.”

Cruz added that he was proud there was a Twitter movement about not repealing the First Amendment beginning to spread.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
