The Right to Restrict Speech Deemed Offensive

The politically correct (PC) police have been raising havoc with the United States lately, trying to turn it into a socialist enclave where only approved speech is allowed.  Surprise, PC police!  There is no mention in the US Constitution of a right to restrict speech deemed to be offensive..   The US Constitution provides the following rights:

1.     Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibiting the free                       exercise therof.
        Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech or of the press.
        The right of the people peaceably to assemble.
        To petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

II.     The right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

III.    No soldier shall, in time of peace, be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner.

IV.  The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against                             unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated...

V.    Grand Jury for Capital crimes, witness against himself, nor deprived of life, liberty or property               without due process of law.

VI.   The right to a speedy and public trial.

VII.  Right of  trial by jury in common law.

VIII. Excessive bail or fines nor cruel and unusual punishment.

IX.   The enumeration in the Constitution if certain rights shall not be construed to deny or                             disparage others retained by the people.

X.    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the                     States, are reserved to the States respectively, to to the people.

The above are the personal rights enumerated in the Constitution.  Notice, that within these enumerated rights, there is no mention or abortion, privacy, being offended, nor special rights and treatment for "minority" races, sexual orientation, people who change sexes, special speech rights for certain groups only.  Now, there are other amendments that give these particular groups the same rights as as all other citizens, but not special rights.   Abortion, privacy, and special rights can, and have been, established by our unelected judicial system with librul judges for life, but the "right" to be offended by someones speech can not be established in that manner, because it was established by the first amendment.   The only way to restrict offensive speech is to repeal the first Amendment first. I know the socialists are trying to do that, but just for their opposition.   You see, Article IX does not say the libruls can't claim that being offended by other's speech is a non-enumerated right, but that doesn't make it so.   The first amendment that enables them to make that claim, also prohibits that claim from being recognized an a non-enumerated right.

As we have Armed Forces to protect and preserve the rights in the Constitution, someone must place their life and safety on the line to do that.  These rights might be endowed, but they are not free.  They must be protected.  If you want to make the "right" to not hear offensive speech effective, You must establish it with your fist, not in the courts or the abuse of the First Amendments freedom of the press.  If you think you have the right not to be offended by someone else's freedom of speech, than either get some earplugs or boxing glove.
