Yesterday marked the four year anniversary of our victory at the U.S. Supreme Court, and miraculously the world is still spinning on its axis. You wouldn’t know this, however, if you were simply relying on blogs on the left for your news and information. Four years later, they simply can’t get over the fact that we were right and WE WON.

Mother Jones even provided a handy chart that showed when people had the right to exercise free speech in the political process, they actually used that right! And the Russian propagandist channel, RT America, also took time to show us the same thing: when people have a right, they exercise it!

As I reflected this weekend about this milestone, I continue to be thankful that the Supreme Court got this one right. I am also continually disgusted by those who actively seek to squash the First Amendment rights of the American people. They are still threatened by the very fact that you have more of a voice, and will continue to wring their hands and outright lie about the decision itself. Thankfully, it doesn’t change what happened four years ago: we stood for the First Amendment, and we were victorious.
