Ami Horowitz Enlists Yale Students to Sign Petition to Repeal the First Amendment

Yale University, one of the nation's most prestigious schools, member of the Ivy League, founded to be a beacon of "Lux et Veritas," and alma mater of five U.S. Presidents, 19 U.S. Supreme Court Justices, hundreds of members of Congress, and several foreign heads of state, lately finds itself a big, warm, fuzzy nest for the ignorant and self-referentially inconsistent.

In less than an hour, satirist Ami Horowitz is able to recruit 50 Yale students to sign a petition seeking to repeal the First Amendment. In case you need a little refresher, the First Amendment 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."

Yes, that's right. Fifty Yalies just signed a petition to repeal their right to petition. Maybe their new motto could be "Tuta Custodia," except that's in Latin, which is elitist and rude.

If you're in the mood for a cringe-inducing horror show, watch "Ami on the Street: Do We Really Need the 1st Amendment?" highlighting Horowitz's encounters with these "enlightened" minds as they sign their rights away, sincerely thanking Horowitz for the opportunity to do so.


  1. New liberal first amendment "The right of the people to not be offended shall not be infringed".

  2. I think the founders of Yale are going to turn in their graves, since it was founded as a divinity school. These students are turning against those who established this place for them to study.
