AMAC Supports Bill to Protect Free Speech

Missouri Senator Josh Hawley

AMAC’s mission is centered on free speech and believes that it should be vigorously defended. Senator Hawley’s bill would dismantle the Department of Homeland Security’s so-called Disinformation Governance Board.

The Honorable Josh Hawley
Senator from Missouri
115 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510

Dear Senator Hawley,

On behalf of over 2.2 million members of the Association of Mature American Citizens – AMAC including nearly 54,000 Missouri residents, I write to offer our support for S. 4135, the “Dissolving the Disinformation Governance Board Act.”

Free speech is a fundamental American right and as such should be zealously and vigorously defended. Our first, and most important amendment to the Constitution states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

We have arrived at a time in our nation’s history when elements of our very own government are threatening the free speech of its citizens. This is not a partisan issue but one that should be supported by all Americans; if one group loses the ability to speak freely, it is a slippery slope to a time when more and more are silenced, unable to freely voice opinions and beliefs. Finally, without freedom of speech, we cannot have the honest discourse required to be able to peaceably resolve problems.

It is vital you continue your work to uncover the elements within the government that seek not only to police free speech through overt methods such as the Disinformation Governance Board, but also through other shadowy and covert methods as exposed by an online investigative report published by The Intercept in October.

Thank you, Senator Hawley, for your work on behalf of free speech, including the “Dissolving the Disinformation Governance Board Act”. This legislation is an important step in protecting speech for all Americans regardless of political affiliation, and AMAC is pleased to offer our full support for S. 4135.

Sincerely,
Bob Carlstrom
President

Not sure about this, but is it right that Alex Jones put out false info that claimed Sandy Hook shootings were a hoax. This harmed a lot of parents that had already suffered deep tragedy. Trial this year had Jones admitting that he was not telling the truth at the time. Somehow, a person must be stopped in doing the false damage that he chose to create. Conspiracy theories are in question ?

The Biden Doctrine, Take the American peoples Guns and Shut Them up. Americans have no right to think for themselves we in BIG GOVERNMENT are the only ones that should be thinking and making decisions. Then we can take everyone’s 401Ks and split them up with whom we see fit!
