Letters to the Editor

Letter: Freedom of speech

To the Editor:

In recent weeks, David Edelman, Gregg Yedwab and Rabbi Marc D. Rudolph have submitted letters to the editor and questioned why the Kendall County Record published letters from a gentleman they labelled a “conspiracy theorist.” Are they not aware of the Constitution of the United States?

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prevents the government from making laws which regulate an establishment of religion, prohibit the free exercise of religion, or abridge the freedom of speech, the freedom of the press, the right to peaceably assemble, or the right to petition the government for redress of grievances. It was adopted on Dec. 15, 1791, as one of the 10 amendments that constitute the Bill of Rights.

Mr. Edelman further states that the authors of the letters from "conspiracy theorists" offer no proof, no details, and cite no legitimate news source that stand by such claims. Where are his proofs, details, and legitimate news sources to support his claims?

By the way, the term “conspiracy theory” was created by the CIA after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Think about that.

As a patriotic citizen, I have taken the oath below and hope that other citizens of Kendall County will do the same.

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion. So help me God.
