Filmmaker Ami Horowitz visited Yale University to interview students about free speech.
“I decided to take this campus free speech debate to its logical conclusion,” said Horowitz, who asked students if they’d sign a petition calling for an outright repeal of the First Amendment. “The result was this unbelievable display of total stupidity.”
A solid majority of students signed the petition and several expressed their gratitude and approval for the anti-first amendment efforts.
“I think it’s really awesome that you’re out here,” said one student.
"I think this is fantastic," says another.
Yet another says "Excellent, I love it" of the petition.
Horowitz collected over 50 signatures in under one hour calling for the repeal of the First Amendment.
The First Amendment reads: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."
What's the problem with that?
