STEPHANOPOULOS: The conversation is now global

No it's not. The Constitution is not "global".

It still applies, and that means...who cares what the madmen think. Let them riot.

The amendment reads, "The Congress shall make no law...", not listing the rights of the people. The clause is restrictive of Government, not the people.

Justice Breyer, you are a Godless, lost soul. In no way do you have ANY right to incorporate the values of the world, almost all of which conflict with the values of the Bible, into our body of law or even into our thinking. If we do, we become like the world and will be governed and live as they do. This will lead to totalitarian government and constant violent conflict in society over disagreements. To even open your mouth and suggest such a thing is so far beyond words it escapes description. It clearly shows the complete deficiency in your upbringing and moral training.

The blogger rightly notes that Breyer's "answer" was really no answer at all to Stephanopoulos's question.

That's the thing about professors in government and politics.

They love to deliver little speeches that only confuse things.

Breyer wanted to promote an abstract idea that may or may not have much to do with how the court might decide a specific case.

I can burn a flag or any book in the U.S.A. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Islam cannot tolerate Freedom of Speech. Why? Because there is no Free Will in Islam — Muhammed said so. There is no debate over the Qur’an or any of the other Muslim texts, unlike exists in Judaism and Christianity.

Islam’s major tenets violate the U.S.Constitution. It should be outlawed in this country.

Breyer went on to say determining “what the theater is” would be accomplished by cases being brought.

I’m telling you, folks, the next step these guys are going to take is to strangle free communication. The want control of the internet so bad they can taste it. I think after yesterday it might have been bumped several places up the list.

If there’s any lesson to be drawn from this it’s that Liberalism in particular and Authority in general always caters to the loud, the obnoxious, the lawyered-up and the potentially violent.

They’ll happily throw YOU in jail for protesting the Islamists, cause they know YOU will go quietly while the Islamists and their allies might riot and break things and will certainly scream at and threaten them from the dock.

This is already routine in the U.K. and Old Europe where Islamist (and other radicals) are allowed to rampage freely and any ordinary folks who dare to counter-protest are rounded up and thrown in the pokey.

Sorry folks, but turning the other cheek only lets them brand you on BOTH buns.

If the theater IS on fire you have a duty to shout ‘fire.’

Did Justice Breyer Say There Is No Right To Burn Korans In First Amendment?

No, I think he said something about free speech is not yelling fire inside a crowded koran...which is burning.

“...the process of globalization was changing our understanding of the law.”

Nothing short of treason! Screw globalization! We have a Constitution!!

The U.S. Constitution guarantees lifetime appointments for Supreme Court justices. Not so in other countries, however. Let us cite foreign precedent and rid ourselves of this traitor!

“Sorry, Justice Breyer, in Slavdonia they shoot Supreme Court justices who declare themselves to be morons. Any last requests?”
