Feinstein: First Amendment is a Special Privilege, Not a Right!

September 18, 2013 @

California Senator Dianne Feinstein has proposed an amendment to the Media Shield Law that would ignore the protection afforded by the First Amendment and would limit the law’s protection only to “real reporters,” not bloggers and other upstart alternative media types.

    Didn’t the good Senator take and oath to protect and defend the Constitution? The number of places Democrats have violated the Constitution is endless. The change suggested attempts to void the very reason for the amendment. If she is successful the next thing that will happen is if you write a letter to the editor suggesting The Senate and the Administration are ruthless in the pursuit of invalidating the Constitution will without a doubt land you in JAIL awaiting a trial you can’t afford while Democrats elected to office sit behind a wall that allows them to say whatever on the floor of the Congress and this has been extended by our Supreme Court to where ever their little heart desires. They aren’t a privileged class though they assume they are at your and my expense.

    Senator Feinstein must obviously have become senile since studying the First Amendment because there is no way that it is a special privilege except in her own mind. She is not a journalist, so therefore she shouldn’t be spouting her opinion based on her opinion. Yet we are supposed to take her misguided word for it? It’s a very good thing that the Bible was written eons ago or it couldn’t be promulgated today. The good people of her state must not be listening to her blather, but if they are, she needs to go. Her reasoning is practically treason, but we’ve come to expect no less. She’s just as bad on the Second Amendment. If it were up to her, the only guns would be in the hands of criminals who find it easy to get guns and we’d be at their mercy. We certainly couldn’t expect help from the police.

    It’s called “The Bill of Rights”, not “The Bill of Privileges”. And her media is called “Pravda”, the state sponsored media that helps to support her cause. There’s a reason Joseph Stalin called people like her supporters “useful idiots”; you can exploit them easily because they are conformists and ignorant, not thinking individuals.

    Feinstein is nothing but a beady eyed idiot. California has some of the dumbest females in Washington and she ranks up with Pelosi, Boxer, and Waters.
