Support Operation 1st Defenders – Help Us Defend Free Speech

Support Operation 1st Defenders – Help Us Defend Free Speech

Please help support our efforts to stop the increasingly violent attacks on Americans exercising their 1st Amendment rights. Our goal is to keep this peaceful FREE SPEECH RALLY peaceful.

If you can’t go the Patriots Day – Free Speech Rally in Berkeley on April 15, you can still help by sending a donation. 

We would like to help defray the expenses of our volunteers, if possible. We have brave military, police, veterans, and other patriots coming to help us. We need your donations to get them to where they need to be. We can’t carry out operations like this without your support. 

Those who are willing to put themselves in harm’s way to protect Americans from the violence meant to shut them up deserve your support. The radical left has Soros’ deep pockets to fund their violence. We have only you to help us protect rally attendees from that violence. We rely on the donations of everyday Americans like you. Every little bit helps.

We thank you for your support of the men who will have boots on the ground.

Note from Stewart:

I know many patriots across the country have given up on California. You need to remember that there are still millions of patriots there. They have not given up and they remember their oaths to the Constitution. That’s why we’re going. They have asked us for help, and we are honor bound to answer the call.

Examples of the erosion of our free speech rights

Our free speech rights are under attack in the United States. The word “free” means FREE, not restricted by someone else’s political agenda. Too many people lately are intolerant of any views other than their own. If they don’t like what’s being said, they not only don’t want to hear it, they don’t want anyone else to hear it either.

If those trying to infringe on free speech can’t stifle the undesired speech, they try to put the speaker in a “free speech zone” to limit the “offensive” free speech to this patch of dirt, or that patch of concrete.

At the Bundy Ranch in 2014, the Bureau of Land Management tried to herd patriotic Americans into a corral fenced with orange plastic. It didn’t work. What the BLM failed to realize is that this “First Amendment Area” sign would result in even more peaceful protesters coming to Bunkerville. Veterans saw this, packed their gear, and headed for the Bundy Ranch. The 1st Amendment is not an “area”.

U.C. Berkeley, in California, now has a reputation of intolerance towards any viewpoints other than those of the majority of university professors and students. If they don’t like a scheduled speaker, they will riot, assault, burn, and destroy. This is denial of free speech by violence.

Infringement of our right to free speech is also illustrated by this sign from the National Park Service:

At this university, it is potentially misdemeanor to hand someone a piece of paper?

This is the reality according to the Constitution:
