Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks about CNN legal analyst Jennifer Rodgers claims that the first amendment doesn’t protect lying, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announces a goal to strengthen the teaching of civics and American values in Texas schools, and Canada considers social media censorship with online hate speech legislation. Dave first discusses the Trump impeachment and the Trump legal team’s defense that his words preceding the storming the Capitol by Trump supporters are protected by the first amendment. CNN’s legal expert however seems to think that lying is not protected by the first amendment. Nationwide we have seen a struggle over US history with the 1619 project and the 1776 commission. Greg Abbott has decided to ensure that Texans understand the reasons for American exceptionalism and why Texas has been successful by increasing civics education in the classroom. Finally Lindsay Shepherd brings to our attention the possibility that free speech in Canada may become more restricted if it decides to legislate online speech to protect people from hate speech.
