Democrat Rep. Wants to Amend Constitution to Deny Free Speech (Video)
November 30, 2012
Democrats hate the idea that the First Amendment does not explicitly restrict the right of corporations to free speech. In order to address this perceived flaw, Rep. Hank Johnson, a Georgia Democrat, has proposed amending the Constitution.
In 2010, Rep. Johnson warned Guam would tip over and sink to the bottom of the ocean.
“We need a constitutional amendment to allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations,” said Johnson at the Annesbrooks HOA candidate Forum in Georgia in October (see video below).
“These corporations, along with the people they support, other millionaires who they’re putting into office, are stealing your government. They’re stealing the government and the U.S. Supreme Court was a big enabler with the Citizens United case,” he said.
