This is how conservatives think. They will report something from a climate scientist as fraudulent without offering proof and when accused of lying themselves they say they are protected by the First Amendment. Abortion rights advocates are trying to get billboards with false statements about abortions ruled unlawful. Abortion right advocates say their 'false' statements are protected by the First Amendment. You make bald face false statements about your opponent but that is also protected by the First Amendment.
Isn't that amazing seeing how the conservatives are always telling us they are about the truth and here they are protecting their lies through the First Amendment.
