The problem with this particular misguided missive is that it incorrectly presumes that the 1st Amendment is not important to conservatives.

The point is to make Libs’ heads explode trying to figure out a response that isn’t self contradictory.

IOW, if not One, then why Two?

Not that it’s not important, but as with the 2nd conservatives would mostly register their MCD’s and pay the fees as they do now for their guns. As we know from the bleatings of liberals and the horrific acts some of them have done, we’d need to treble the number of jails to handle the overflow!

(MCD = Mass Communication Device) (Good one!)

The problem with this particular misguided missive is that it incorrectly presumes that the 1st Amendment is not important to conservatives.

Furthermore, it incorrectly presumes that the 1st Amendment is important to communists. Nothing can be farther from the truth. It was a crime to spread information in USSR and in China because information is the worst threat to dictators. I think I read somewhere that in USSR many typewriters and all copiers had to be registered with the state; running a printing press required a higher clearance than running a rifle range.

Communists would be perfectly happy if the whole Constitution is suppressed. Then the only laws remaining would be their own pocket laws, rules and regulations - and they can tailor those to the need. Of course only licensed journalists would be allowed to speak, and only licensed printing houses could print anything, anywhere. Internet firewalls are already in place abroad - and they are coming to the USA too.
