The Democrat Party has quickly moved toward the fringes of American politics.
Ideas thought to be too radical are now being openly pushed into the mainstream.
And now, one jaw-dropping poll has revealed why Joe Biden is waging war on freedom of speech.
The Democrats and their media allies have become openly hostile towards free speech and the Constitution in general.
Far-left writer and political commentator Elie Mystal went on The View and called the Constitution “trash.”
Harvard law professor Ryan D. Doerfler and Yale law professor Samuel Moyn co-wrote a New York Times op-ed titled: “The Constitution Is Broken and Should Not Be Reclaimed.”
In the piece, the “progressive” law professors argued that “struggling over the Constitution has proved a dead end. The real need is not to reclaim the Constitution, as many would have it, but instead to reclaim America from constitutionalism…In so doing, Congress would be pretty openly defying the Constitution to get to a more democratic order — and for that reason would need to insulate the law from judicial review.”
In order to save democracy, the left must destroy democracy.
This has become the ethos of the new Democrat Party.
Hardcore leftists are systematically taking over the party through monopoly control of education.
And a RealClear Opinion Research (RCOR) poll showed how the Democrats have shockingly abandoned the principles of the Constitution.
The RCOR poll illustrated that a “bare majority of Democrats (53%) say speech should be legal under any circumstances, while 47% say it should be legal ‘only under certain circumstances.’”
Comparatively, Republicans and Independents believe in free speech at a rate of 74% and 61%, respectively.
The RCOR poll showed that roughly “one-third of Democratic voters (34%) say Americans have ‘too much freedom.’ This compared to 14.6% of Republicans. Republicans were most likely to say Americans have too little freedom (46%), while only 22% of Democrats feel that way. Independents were in the middle in both categories.”
So nearly one-third of the Democrat Party believes that American freedoms need to be rolled back.
Only 31% of Democrat respondents strongly agreed with the statement: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
That’s a far cry from the old-school liberals who defended the freedom of speech of all Americans, even if they disagreed with what they had to say.
The poll also showed that 75% “of Democrats believe government has a responsibility to limit ‘hateful’ social media posts,” which might be the most troubling result of all.
Social media has become the de facto public square, so if people are unable to speak freely there, then their free speech rights have been greatly curtailed.
Nobody is in favor of harassment, but the term “hateful” can and will be broadly applied.
For instance, stating that there are only two genders would be considered “hateful” by radical leftists.
The left are pulling the Democrat Party toward the fringes, and this poll explains how they are doing it.
