Americans Can’t Name First Amendment Rights

by Dan Joseph |  |  published on August 1, 2015

The First Amendment is the foundation on which our entire nation was built. Without it, America as we know it would cease to exist. So, you would think that Americans would be able to name at least a few of the basic rights guaranteed by the most important section of the Bill of Rights.

Well, think again!

In our latest video, MRCTV proves that many Americans have an incredibly limited knowledge of the First Amendment – and some people actually don’t have any. But, here’s the kicker: the people we interviewed were coming out of the National Archive Building in Washington DC.

    I really hope they handed out a copy of the bill of rights be proactive

  • The Dumbing Down of America thru Common Core, backed by the Democratic Party. Only reason the Kenyan Queen, Hussein, won both elections were because the majority of Americans are stupid and only voted for skin color and freebies, not content of character. Many were fooled by the Con Man, Obama, because he is a good Liar and many opened their eyes to the truth and refused to support him in 2012, but the ones who still supported him only proved they are the dumbest, most pathetic people in our Wonderful Nation! The USA is still a #1 Nation, we just need to get rid of the 3rd World Trash leading us on the path of destruction.

      Well howdy Nitwit!! Good to see you back here. I kind of missed all your deep insights and friendly chat.

      Hey Nitwit, do you know anything about Common Core? The standards were published in June of 2010, and most of the states adopted them after that. So they’ve only been in existence for barely 5 years. Rush has been spewing his idiocy for, what, 20 years now? And Fair and Balanced FOX “News” has been making the American people their guinea pigs in the dumbing down of news and the power of nice looking legs and some revealing cleavage for about 15 years now.

      So you tell me which has had the greater effect on the adult population and their ignorance of the Constitution and general news and facts?

      • Seems like your some kind of pervert that follows me, are you a queer or just another nigger fecal maggot like your idiol, Barry the Queer?

        • I Seigel

          Still feeling a little guilty about that summer camp with the Boy Scouts all those many years ago? Let it go, Nitwhit. It’s ok. Embrace your TRUE inner self. You’re among friends.

          • How old are you, 14, no older than 21 is my guess, from the ignorant posts. Still a very immature child with the wisdom of a gnat. Will pray that you become a Man one day and get out of your Twat stage.

          • I Seigel

            Well, I asked you about Common Core, and I’ve asked you about other subjects in other topics, and you’ve always chosen to call me names rather than answer. So you tell me who’s behaving like an immature child.

    This is why the feds need to take over education, all these people went through the school system before common core. It proves that local school boards aren’t working and our education system needs fixed.

  • Robert L. Rice

    We (the USA) has the DUMBEST college graduates,and the teachers,are nothing to write home about either,Jesse Waters,on FOX TV,Really finds out how stupid the graduates are,,,,

  • Dave In Arizona

    The failed liberal / progressive eduction system rarely teaches this.

  • USMCret

    This delema is what the education dept of the feds are doing to AMERICAN YOUTH dumbing them down and they’re not being taught civics like it was taught when I was a high school student and this is the problem as most grauuates are ignorant of what govt is all about.

  • savage24

    With the help of the Liberal/Progressive Movement, America under the 1st Amendment has not existed for a very long time. If it wasn’t for the 2nd Amendment we would already be subjects instead of citizens. Remember the Constitution is meaningless without the Declaration of Independence, and that is why this movement has been trying to separate them for years. God Bless America, and down with tyranny.

  • Cody Baker

    I call it the “Shock Wave”…… Obama knew when he was elected and how long it will take to meet his goal. People were blind to his goals he had set when he reached the White House

  • TexRancher

    Part of the communist doctrine: Take over the education of our youth followed by health and food…..Look back at the acts of Stalin. Oh, can’t find his history? You’ll find it in the list of executive orders signed by Kenya Boy!

    • I Seigel

      Yo Tex! You must be kidding, right? This isn’t part of the “communist doctrine”, as you call it. Michel, in his post here, is right – it IS the “dumbing down of America”. But it’s not part of any “communist doctrine”. The dumbing down is happening right there in Texas, supported by your state government and your Board of Education. Eliminating or limiting civics classes, and any instruction involving controversial thoughts or that might pose a challenge to parental teaching. Look it up – it’s happening RIGHT NOW in Texas. And in Kansas, and probably in lots of other states and counties. Boards of Education insisting on rewrites to schoolbooks, cutting funds, etc. And Texas leads the way. Rah Rah.

  • Michel

    It’s called the dumbing down of America.

  • Luke

    A public gov’t school is not teaching America, it teaches that john marrying jim is the way.

    • raffaelecafagna

      In public schools they teach about : Mr. Hershey the chocolate man and Mary Kay the make up lady . Nothing about the History of our Nation.

    • joespenthouse

      Luke, what makes it even worse Jim is the teacher and that sick homo go’s and uses the kids bathroom, what is he really doing? We all know damn well what the homo pervert is doing. We need God in every part of our lives, and we have to stand up for those who can’t defend themselves, I don’t want some flaming fruitcake teaching my Kids, do you.

      • Rhonda Hunt

        joespenthouse Joe do you really mean what you say about needing God in every part of your life,or are you just saying that thinking he’s not listening,you are aware that if we are found to be sinners Yahweh will not hear our prayers John 9:31,Proverbs 28:9,Psalms 66:18,sin is the transgression of the laws 1 John 3:4,unless we repent turn to Yahweh and keep his Commandments (I am Speaking only of his People)then we can not win this battle against the forces of Darkness,the Bible tells us we can not stand before our enemies if there is sin in the camp,and that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal,but mighty through God for the destruction of strongholds which are undisciplined thought patterns and mindsets and anything that does not line up with scripture,preachers have been telling Christians for a very long time that they do not need to obey the Commandments to be saved which is true,we are save by grace through faith,but we are sanctified,converted,transformed and made Holy by Yahweh’s law Psalms 19:7,Yeshua said that if we were not willing to forsake all and follow him then we could not be his disciple,so if we really intend to change the world it will come at a high price to us,we can no longer afford to follow religion and tradition any longer,it has failed completely and will continue to do so,the choice is ours,just calling ourselve Christians will not get the job done,we have to get scriptural and be doers of his laws and not hearers only.—-Jim Hunt
