Filmmaker Asks Yale Students to Repeal First Amendment — Watch Their ‘Unbelievable’ Responses

Several Yale University students were captured on camera by a documentary filmmaker happily signing a petition aimed at repeating the First Amendment.

The video shows media personality Ami Horowitz ask students on the Ivy League campus if they would willingly sign his anti-free speech petition.

“I think this is fantastic and I absolutely agree,” one student replied.

“Excellent,” echoed another.

“I totally agree with where you are at,” yet another said.

Horowitz said that in under an hour he was able to collect over 50 signatures from the Yale community. He told Fox News the reactions from students were an “unbelievable display of total stupidity.”

The petition from Horowitz comes amid a national debate over free speech and the idea of “safe spaces” on college campuses.
