British editorial tells Americans they need restraints on free speech

Simon Jenkins writing for the UK’s Guardian says “free speech can’t exist unchained.”

Hey Simon, your editorial shows that you have absolutely zero understanding of the 1st Amendment, what it stands for, and why we have it.  We fought a war with you to gain that right.  Our country’s Founding Fathers risked death for treason at the hand of your king.   Speaking out against the government is exactly the purpose of the 1st Amendment and its protections.  If you think what we have today is “vitriolic,” why don’t you spend some time reading what the Founding Fathers wrote about King George.
