Oh, really?

Some of the responses:

Who wants to tell him he’s the meat processing plant of this quote?

Heh. Someone won the internets on Monday.

Enemy of free speech Eric Schmitt explains why he does it.

Again, which party is banning books, words, and black history??? #GOPLies

Which party is censoring books in schools and libraries? Which party is attempting to censor what courses can be taught in universities and how they can be taught. Hint, it’s Schmitt’s party. If the books haven’t yet been removed, check out Germany in the 1930s.

So… why don’t you and yours support freedom of speech, then?

Cool, when’s your next public town hall?

I agree with the Washington quote, Eric the Grifter. The irony is that the 1st Amendment also protects your right to lie to your constituents and you have been taking heavy advantage of that. BTW, today is Washington’s Birthday (federal holiday). Enjoy.

Says the party of book banning

Exactly what YOU are doing to #Missourians

Your party wants to ban books and limit what schools can teach.

You mean like banning books?


I wonder what Washington would think about y’all’s book bans.. Don’t you Eric?

And yet you want to ban books?

I can google quotes by Presidents too.

“Don’t believe everything you read on the Internet.” – Abraham Lincoln

Is that why you’re banning books and regulating public libraries?

“Guard against the impostures of pretended Patriotism”
—George Washington

Fox news put out lies as if it were news. They talked among themselves about how this is false but put it out as true anyway .

Telling known lies while acting as a news organization is not the First amendment .

And with freedom if speech comes responsibility. You have the freedom to speak but there are consequences for irresponsible words. @FoxNews is learning those consequences as we speak.

Is that why the GOP is banning books, defunding education, and trying to silence anyone who disagrees with your fascistic proclivities?

Weird for a book banner like you to be quoting people speaking directly against your actions.

Focus on that oath you took to upload our Constitution, not the promise you made to prostitute yourself in service of MAGA.

Too late.

You’re free to stop tweeting nonsense and actually do something. Clown
