The Threat of Intolerance
How the First Amendment Can Keep the United States From Disintegrating
The radical Left (nearly indistinguishable from the modern Democrat party) preaches tolerance but practices the opposite. Their philosophy is a short and dangerous syllogism:
1. Anyone who disagrees with me is a fascist
2. It's ok to punch fascists
This is a recipe for disaster.
Hear David French explain how the First Amendment can protect us from the dark path the Left would put us on. The "safety valve" of free speech is indispensable to maintaining a tolerable level of civility that may otherwise be lost.
Mr. French is a National Review Institute Fellow, and a veteran of the Iraq war. He is one of the preeminent defenders of liberty in the United States, having argued First Amendment cases at the Supreme Court in which the boundaries of free speech and freedom of religion were at stake.
