Gingrich: Limit and Restrict "Free Speech"

Gingrich wants to limit and restrict our Freedom Speech. Newt Gingrich mostly wants is to the limit the freedom of speech online.

Gingrich stated this in 2006, "My view is that either before we lose a city, or if we are truly stupid after we lose a city, we will adopt rules of engagement that we use every technology we can find to break up their capacity to use the Internet, to break up their capacity to use free speech, and to go after people who want to kill us, to stop them from recruiting people before they get to reach out and convince young people to destroy their lives while destroying us."

This just shows that Newt Gingrich is no different than Barrack Obama; as Newt Gingrich would agree with Barrack Obama that we should have assassinated Anwar al-Awlaki.

Anwar al-Awlaki is the best example as he only used his First Amendment in another country, but he used his freedom of speech on the internet and therefore was eliminated with his 16 year old son.

Anwar al-Awlaki and his 16 year old son are the first American Citizens confirmed to be assassinated by the U.S. Government.

But as Newt Gingrich and Barrack Obama want restrictions on speech and look at the Supreme Court case, Schenck v. United States (1919) and take Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.'s quote as saying; "The most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a man falsely shouting fire in a theater and causing a panic."

But Holmes is wrong, the federal government has no right to make laws against free speech; the theater in this quote would be the ones to restrict the speech.

It should be that every theater would have rules and regulations; this would make it so that if you want to see a movie in a theater, that you would see you can't scream false accusations to cause a panic.

There should never be limits on free speech through the government, only by you applying to give them up freely. This is different than School Systems and the TSA, because you have no other choice to pick from and you are forced to go to school and forced to go through the TSA.
