The Democrat Party is becoming increasingly hostile to the First Amendment in toto, because it stands in the way of so much of what they want to accomplish.
Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) says the 1st Amendment’s religious liberty protections don’t apply to individuals. On MSNBC last week, Wisconsin’s junior Senator claimed that the Constitution’s protection of the free exercise of religion extends only to religious institutions, and that individuals do not have a right to the free exercise of their own religion.
[The Judge in the Oregon Wedding Cake Fascist Case has imposed a gag order on the defendants,] He doesn’t want Christian sympathizers to buy cakes from them, and thereby diminish their state-ordered pain.
He is determined that the state of Oregon shall beggar them and they shall remain beggared — so they don’t get to talk about their principled refusal to bake cakes for gay weddings, nor solicit business on that basis.
This is, obviously, anti-American and vengefully Stalinist.
