With Donald Trump’s mounting legal dilemmas over the past year, there’s quite a bit of speculation regarding whether the former president’s alleged efforts as outlined in his latest indictment fall under First Amendment protected speech.

As many are already aware, former President Trump was hit with his third felony indictment on August 1st, with the latest charges being the second filing to come from the Biden Administration’s Justice Department.

The four-count indictment alleges Trump had committed in the wake of the outcome of the 2020 election Conspiracy to Defraud the United States, Conspiracy to Obstruct an Official Proceeding, Obstruction and Attempt to Obstruct an Official proceeding, and Conspiracy Against Rights.

But what seemingly all of these charges rely on are alleged conversations Trump had with his then-legal counsel as well as purported conversations he either directly had or were conducted under his express permission with various campaign staff.

In a sense, the Justice Department’s case hinges on a hodge-podge of novel legal theory regrading what is or isn’t protected political speech, regardless of whether or not Trump genuinely believed the election was stolen from him in 2020.

As Jonathan Turley noted in an opinion piece featured in The Hill, “In order to secure convictions for this, Special Counsel Jack Smith would need to bulldoze through not just the First Amendment but also existing case law holding that even false statements are protected.”

With all this hubbub surrounding what may or may not be protected speech uttered by prominent politicians, it seems rather timely to examine the state of political speech that was rife during the Trump presidency.

One needn’t dive too far into the memory banks of years past to recall the numerous times critics of the former administration manufactured untrue narratives and lobbed absurd criticisms – but one aspect that was rather unique during the Trump administration was the active calls for violence and/or riots uttered by Democratic politicians and their media cohorts who carried water for them.

In a video uploaded by The Liberty Daily on August 9th, a montage is shared that encapsulates the vitriolic, and at times dangerous, rhetoric spouted from Democratic politicians and their media acolytes, with various personalities calling for violence against then-President Trump and cheering on riots and unrest that permeated 2020.

The montage showcases a who’s who of Trump critics, with characters such as Joe Biden bragging about how if he and Trump were in high school together, he would’ve beaten him up behind the bleachers, Chris Cuomo questioning why more people weren’t rioting in 2020, and Robert DeNiro boasting about how he’d like to punch Trump in the face.

I'm not sure why this would surprise anyone, they started the Civil War and have really never left their roots for creating hate.

Now blue cities are out of control with violence and murders. Like Washington DC wanting to call in the NATIONAL GUARD!
