29 Aug 2005 Jesse Jackson: First Amendment? What First Amendment?
Posted at 09:14h in Blog
In light of Pat Robertson’s publicly-expressed view that the U.S. government should “take… out” Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez, Jesse Jackson says the Federal Communications Commission should ban discussions of assassinating foreign leaders on U.S. “airwaves.”
Robertson’s comments, of course, were were on a broadcast of the “700 Club,” owned by a non-profit institution, not a broadcast network. In other words, the First Amendment applies.
So, Jackson, supposed civil rights leader, wants to violate our civil rights.
