When Exactly Does the First Amendment Apply?

If there is one thing (but there are actually many) that Democrats have exposed about themselves through these riots it’s that they are using COVID-19 as a political pawn.

For the last few months Democrats have shouted that by going to church even with masks and social distancing COVID cases will spike, but then when hundreds of people protest without masks or social distancing the virus isn’t an issue and how dare anyone get mad at someone to exercise their First Amendment right. They seem to forget that religion is part of the First Amendment.

The First Amendment clearly states,

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.

United States Constitution First Amendment

The government has no authority to prohibit people from going to church and there is a vast difference between peaceably assembling and violent destructive riots. In the event of riots, the government does have the authority to intervene.

The latest cry for concern has been about in person voting. But why is there a difference between standing in line to vote and standing in line at the grocery store? Simply, there isn’t. It is known that in person voting is the most reliable form of voting and there is a difference between mail in voting and absentee ballots. Mail in voting has proved countless times to be untrustworthy. Dozens of people across the country have shared that they’ve received ballots in the mail for deceased relatives or for people who no longer live at that address.

If people can protest (with or without masks) then why can’t people vote in person with COVID safety precautions in place like masks, social distancing, and increasing the number of days to vote?

So when exactly does the First Amendment apply? For Democrats only when it benefits them. That is a dangerous road to walk on, one that Americans aren’t willing to explore.

It seems that Democrats know that Americans want Donald Trump to finish what he started and that terrifies them. It terrifies them because now they are even further from destroying the nation they so cunningly say they love. Well, actions speak louder than words and Americans have been watching. We’ve had enough and we are going to take our country back on November 3. Trump 2020!
