Civil Liberties

Civil Liberties

Buglecall supports the protection of our civil liberties under the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We have a particular focus on the First Amendment which embodies the liberty of free expression through speech and the media, freedom of religious belief and practice, freedom of political belief,  and the right for peaceful assembly to appeal to the government to modify policies and eradicate injustices.

We support the Second Amendment which protects our right to keep and bear arms and the Fourth Amendment which prevents the government from unreasonable search and seizure of our individual property.

While we acknowledge the equal protection clause under the 14th amendment which provides access to free public elementary and secondary school education for all US citizens and legal residents, we are also proponents of school choice which grants parents the ability to select the best educational option for their children including traditional public, public charter, parochial, private or home school.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Steps Down. His Replacement Has History Of Anti-White Racism And Will ‘Focus Less’ On Free Speech

Wow, Jack is out. After starting Twitter on July 15, 2006, the bohemian, absent CEO, is leaving, being replaced by an SJW anti-white board member. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is stepping down as the chief of the social media company, effective immediately. Parag Agrawal, Twitter’s chief technology officer, will take over the helm, the company said Monday. “I’ve decided to leave Twitter because I believe the company is ready to move on from its founders,” Dorsey said in a statement, though he didn’t provide any additional detail on why he decided to resign.” With Dorsey’s announcement the spotlight moved onto Parag, and what we are finding makes us miss Jack already.

But yikes. pic.twitter.com/EOycoPbTTz — House Judiciary GOP (@JudiciaryGOP) November 29, 2021 Agrawal said in an interview with the MIT Technology Review last year, while he was CTO of the company, that free speech was no longer a focus for the company. “Our role is not to be bound by the First Amendment, but our role is to serve a healthy public conversation and our moves are reflective of things that we believe lead to a healthier public conversation,” said Agrawal. On Sunday night, Dorsey sent out a tweet with the message “I love Twitter.” In an email sent to employees and shared on Twitter, Dorsey said he has worked hard to make sure the company can break away from its founders. “There aren’t many companies that get to this level,” Dorsey wrote. “And there aren’t many founders that choose their company over their own ego. I know we’ll prove this was the right move.” not sure anyone has heard but, I resigned from Twitter pic.twitter.com/G5tUkSSxkl — jack⚡️ (@jack) November 29, 2021 Twitter shares jumped on the news, rising as

Disney caters to China censorship: Removes ‘Simpsons’ episode mocking Chinese censorship from Hong Kong

Disney has catered to Chinese Communist Party censorship, removing an episode of The Simpsons from its streaming service Disney+ in Hong Kong because the episode contains a joke about Chinese censorship of the Tiananmen Square Massacre, according to The Hollywood Reporter on Sunday. In episode 12 of season 16, entitled “Goo Goo Gai Pan,” Homer Simpson takes his family to China, where they visit Tiananmen Square. While in the area, the family discovers a placard that states: “On this site, in 1989, nothing happened,” mocking China’s ongoing efforts to cover up the Chinese government’s deadly attack on protesters. China’s censorship creeps everywhere.

Violators could face up to three
