I don't pretend to know what Alex Jones is thinking since I stopped listening to him in 2007, but hear me out for a sec.
The legislative and executive branches wrote and passed the law into US CODE that gives corporations 14th amendment rights of equal protection, and
thus 1st amendment rights.
U.S. Code Title 1, Chapter 1, Subsection 1
In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, unless the context indicates otherwise— the words "person" and “whoever”
include corporations, companies, associations, firms, partnerships, societies, and joint stock companies, as well as individuals
Amendment 14 to the United States Constitution: Section 1.
No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive
any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the
equal protection of the laws.
Simple, really. Get rid of USC Title 1, Chap 1, SS 1. But this has not been the focus of the debate, has it?
The focus has been to denounce the supreme court for not setting the precedent beyond their constitutional power by revoking free speech rights that
the congress and the executive signed into law. Americans need to be weary of that kind of precedent.
So ask yourself this: Has this debate been about renouncing corporate person-hood (which would be absolutely simple to accomplish since only a
presidential signature is required to nullify it) OR has it been about weakening the very foundation of free speech, about attacking the first
This is actually a brilliant strategy. Give corporations 14th amendment rights using USC knowing the people would eventually disapprove; When the call
comes to get rid of it, the debate is steered towards weakening the Constitution (which grants actual rights) and not the USC that grants color of law
rights to corporations. It is Problem-reaction-solution, and since that seems to be the modus operandi these days, that alone should make people
