The Democrats just love attacking the right to freedom of speech and freedom of expression, don’t they?
Over the last four years, during the era of President Donald Trump, the left and the Democrats would constantly attempt to police language used by ordinary Republicans, office-holding Republicans, and even the President of the United States.
Now, with the Democrats in control of all three branches of government, they finally have their chance to limit freedom of speech and chuck the 1st Amendment out the window.
This is exactly what President Joe Biden has started to do, having signed a memo this week to ban the terms ‘Wuhan Virus’ and ‘China Virus’ from being used by federal employees and from federal documents in their subsequent agencies.
Why this is important?
With the stroke of a pen, the President of the United States is now able to dictate the language used by employees throughout the country’s federal agencies, and, to be honest, in a stand-alone issue, this wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.
However, the release of these memos sets out a very dangerous precedent under the Biden Administration; that the branch of the presidency is allowed to add restrictions to the right of freedom of speech without consequence, as long as they tie it up in a neat little bow by blaming somebody else.
That’s exactly what President Biden has done here.
The memos released this week place the blame on the Trump Administration for the increase of violence against the Asian-American community, after he coined the term ‘China Virus’ at the start of 2020, accusing him of racism.
Yet the term is not racist in the slightest.
China is a place, not an ethnicity; Asian-Americans are not Chinese and the fact that the left cannot understand that is bewildering.
The simple fact is that President Biden has no answer to the large swell of crimes currently being committed against the Asian-American community, it is happening under his watch so he needs to shift the blame away from back to the former President who hasn’t been in the public spotlight for over four months.
The precedent now being set by the President is a dangerous one, because what’s to prevent him or any other President’s in the future from signing memos or orders that limit what speech can be used in certain settings.
Today, it’s federal offices, tomorrow, it’s schools.
The President is infringing on 1st Amendment rights, all because he is unable to solve the unprecedented number of crises’ currently occurring under his lazy eye.
