(RightIsRight.co) – No American or law enforcement agency should ever take lightly realistic threats of harm against the President of the United States or any elected official from the president down to public officials serving in communities all across this great nation.
At the same time, the United States of America is a constitutional republic. The United States Constitution, along with its amendments, was written to protect the citizens of this country from the government.
The Framers of the Constitution and specifically the authors of the Bill of Rights (the first ten amendments to the Constitution) enumerated the right to freedom of speech in the First Amendment with deliberate intent. They made that foundational right first among equals when crafting the Bill of Rights.
The relevant portion of the First Amendment reads, “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech.”
And, as every student of the Constitution knows, that right is there to specifically protect the right of Americans to express their thoughts about the government and its officials, even if some consider those expressions to be ugly and profane.
That brings us to what a reporter for NBC News by the name of Ken Dilanian did yesterday when, as reported by The Federalist, Dilanian learned about “gun dealers printing the phrase “Let’s go, Brandon,” a euphemism for “F-ck Joe Biden,” on merchandise, with the labels “[email protected]!” “Joe!” and “Biden!” in place of the typical “safe,” “fire,” and “auto” modes.”
What did Dilanian, a liberal mainstream media reporter, if ever there was one, do? He called the United States Secret Service.
What did the Secret Service do? Well, as best as anyone can determine, it did exactly what it should do, nothing.
According to Dilanian, the Secret Service “had no comment.”
Which, in keeping with the First Amendment, is precisely the correct response to Dilanian and NBC News’ hysterical action.
As long as no explicit threat is made against President Joe Biden, Americans are free to say, chant, or print most anything they so please – just as liberals and socialists did to former President Donald J. Trump when he was in office.
