Well, I Don’t Know About That – America’s First Amendment – The Jim Jefferies Show – Comedy Central


IN CELEBRATION OF FOURTH OF JULY, NPR TWEETED THE ENTIRE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. AND THE WHOLE BUNCH OF PEOPLE RESPONDED BY DECLARING THEIR INDEPENDENCE FROM INTELLIGENCE.>>TRUMP SUPPORTERS DIDN’T RECOGNIZE THE WORDS FROM ONE OF NATION’S FOUNDING DOCUMENTS. THEY THOUGHT NPR WAS PROMOTING PROPAGANDA AND INCITING VIOLENCE. ONE PERSON TWEETED, SO NPR IS CALLING FOR REVOLUTION, INTERESTING WAY TO CONDONE THE VIOLENCE WHILE TRYING TO SOUND PATRIOTIC. >>YES. THE VOTING PATRIOTS GETTING RILED UP BECAUSE THEY DON’T RECOGNIZE THEIR OWN COUNTRY’S FOUNDING DOCUMENT. LIKE GETTING MAD BECAUSE YOUR GIRLFRIEND SAID YOUR NAME IN BED. JIM! WHO THE [ BLEEP ]’S JIM? OH, I THOUGHT YOU WERE. WELL, I AM! BUT THERE’S A LOT OF JIMS! IT’S OKAY, IT’S OKAY. THE GREAT THING ABOUT THIS COUNTRY IS YOU’RE ALLOWED TO SAY STUPID THINGS. IT’S WRITTEN RIGHT INTO THE CONSTITUTION. AMERICA’S OTHER MOST MISUNDERSTOOD DOCUMENTS. AMERICANS LOVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH BUT THE TRUTH IS THE FIRST AMENDMENT IS A LOT LIKE A VAGINA. IT’S BEAUTIFUL AND COMPLICATED AND ANGRY GUYS ON THE INTERNET HAVE NO IDEA HOW IT WORKS. AND SOME WOMEN TOO. IF YOU HAVEN’T HAD AN ORGASM BY AGE 40, MAYBE YOU SHOULD TAKE SOME RESPONSIBILITY. TAKE A LOOK AT THE FIRST AMENDMENT IN A SEGMENT WE CALL “WELL, I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THAT.” TO BEGIN WITH, THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO BELIEVE THE FIRST AMENDMENT ALLOWS THEM TO SPREAD HATE SPEECH. WELL, I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THAT. OH, NO, NO. APPARENTLY THAT IS TRUE. THE SUPREME COURT HAS A LONG HISTORY OF RULING IN FAVOR OF ASSHOLES. IN 1969 THEY CLDEFENDED A KLAN MEMBER’S RIGHT TO RULE IN FAVOR OF TEENAGERS WHO BURNED A CROSS ON A BLACK FAMILY’S LONG. AND THE RIGHT TO PROTEST SOLDIERS’ FUNERALS WITH ANTI-GAY SIGNS. LOOK HOW HAPPY SHE IS. NOW THERE’S A LADY WHO KNOWS HOW TO ENJOY HER FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS. WHAT I’M TRYING TO SAY IS THE FIRST AMENDMENT MEANS YOU CAN SAY WHATEVER YOU WANT. BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT OTHER PEOPLE HAVE TO LIKE IT. LAST MONTH A PROFESSOR AT THE UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE WAS FIRED FOR SHARING HER OPINIONS ABOUT OTTO WARMBIER, THE AMERICAN STUDENT WHO DIED AFTER BEING IMPRISONED IN NORTH KOREA. >>>PROFESSOR DETWILER SAYS WARMBIER, THE STUDENT WHO DIED AFTER BEING HELD CAPTIVE IN NORTH KOREA, “GOT EXACTLY WHAT HE DESERVED.” UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE, A PRIVATE INSTITUTION BUT RECEIVES PUBLIC FUNDING, THE FACT THAT THAT PERSON WAS FIRED MAY HAVE A LAWSUIT BECAUSE OF THE VIOLATION OF FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS. >>WELL, I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THAT. FREEDOM OF SPEECH DOES NOT MEAN FREEDOM FROM CONSEQUENCE, IT JUST MEANS THAT YOU CAN’T BE IMPRISONED OR BEATEN INTO A COMA BY THE GOVERNMENT FOR MOCKING A KID WHO WAS IN PRISON AND BEATEN INTO A COMA BY THE GOVERNMENT. COMPANIES ARE CERTAINLY ALLOWED TO FIRE PEOPLE FOR WHAT THEY SAY. IF YOU’RE OKAY WITH THAT GUY LOSING HIS BOOK DEAL, YOU HAVE TO ADMIT IT’S FAIR FOR SOMEONE TO BE FIRED FOR A TWEET. BEING A BIGOT OR MAKING A POOR JOKE ARE EQUALLY FIREABLE OFFENSES. SO IF YOU’RE GOING TO MAKE A BAD JOKE AT THE OFFICE, GET YOUR MONEY’S WORTH. MAKE IT AS RACIST AS POSSIBLE. THE FIRST AMENDMENT LENDS ITSELF TO A LOT OF AMBIGUOUS SITUATIONS LIKE THESE. THE SUPREME COURT RECENTLY GRANTED A TRADEMARK TO AN ASIAN-AMERICAN ROCK BAND ALLOWING THEM TO USE THE NAME “THE SLANTS SDWROOCHLT.” THE RULING IS ALSO SEEN AS VICTORY FOR OTHER CONTROVERSIAL TRADEMARKS LIKE THE WASHINGTON REDSKINS. THE DIFFERENCE IS THE SLANTS ARE ASIAN. THE REDSKINS AREN’T NATIVE AMERICAN. NOBODY SAYS, HAVE YOU MET OUR NEW RUNNING BACK, RUNNING BACK? HOW DOES HE GET HIS HELMET ON? THIS SEEMS SUCH AN IMPRACTICAL BIT OF HEAD WEAR, I DON’T KNOW. NOW THE COURT IS ABOUT TO HEAR A CASE IN INVOLVING AMERICA’S FAVORITE FREE SPEECH MASCOT THE HOMOPHOBIC WEDDING CAKE GUY. >>ANOTHER MAJOR CASE THE SUPREME COURT WILL CONSIDER NEXT TERM IS WHETHER A DENVER BAKER BROKE THE LAW BY REFUSING TO SELL A WEDDING CAKE TO A GAY COUPLE BECAUSE OF HIS RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. THE OWNER CLAIMS COMPELLING HIM TO MAKE CAKES FOR SAME-SEX COUPLES VIOLATES HIS FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS TO FREE SPEECH.>>WELL, I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THAT. WHY IS IT ALWAYS PEOPLE WHO WORK IN THE WEDDING INDUSTRY THAT DON’T WANT TO SERVE GAY CUSTOMERS? LIKE YOU’RE A FLORIST OR YOU MAKE CAKES. GAY PEOPLE LOVE THOSE THINGS. HERE’S THE JOBS YOU SHOULDN’T DO. DON’T AN CHOREOGRAPHER. DON’T BE A JUDGE ON “RuPAUL’S DRAG RACE,” IT’S NOT FOR YOU. OH, YOU’RE WORRIED TO SELL CAKES TO SAME-SEX COUPLES. WHAT’S NEXT? A SEX SHOP THAT WON’T SELL TO THE GAYS? I GOT INTO THIS BUSINESS TO STOP SODOMY ONCE AND FOR ALL! BY PLUGGING ALL THE BUTTS UP! OF COURSE I BELIEVE THAT THE FIRST AMENDMENT MUST BE PROTECTED. BUT FREEDOM OF SPEECH COMES WITH THE EQUALLY IMPORTANT RESPONSIBILITY TO KNOW WHEN TO SHUT THE [ BLEEP ] UP. THE FIRST AMENDMENT MEANS YOU CAN SAY WHATEVER YOU WANT. IT DOESN’T GUARANTEE THAT I HAVE TO LISTEN TO YOU. YOU CAN CALL ME A [ BLEEP ], I’LL CALL YOU A [ BLEEP ]. YOU DON’T HAVE TO COME TO MY HOUSE, I DON’T HAVE TO COME TO YOUR HOUSE. YOU CAN [ BLEEP ], [ BLEEP ], AND THAT’S THE KIND OF FREEDOM WE SHOULD CELEBRATE IN THIS COUNTRY EVERY DAY. ENOUGH OF THIS FOURTH OF JULY. SO LOOK AT ME. [ BLEEP ] OFF, AMERICA! AND I’M ALLOWED TO SAY THAT. AND THANKFUL I AM.

    Allowed except where bleeped by law. Or by the spineless of someone along the path of this video being posted. Did Comedy Central censor it originally? Is that the funny icing of irony on this wedding cake of freedom?

  • tbrogoit02

    Damn ya Jim! You made me go learn something. I checked out the Otto story in full and I gotta say, the teacher was being a bit of a bitch. Dude was arrested and sentenced to 15 years hard labor for removing a picture. He deserved to get in trouble, sure. Shit, make him serve time. But to say he deserved to die for this? That teacher can get bent… And I'm allowed to say that.

    Most Americans have this idea of Freedom of Speech which is largely different from the rest of the world. Take Germany for example, some Chinese tourists have been detained for making Nazi salute in front of the Holocaust monument. If they were in America, they would have not ended up in jail as some would argue that they were just expressing their opinions.
    I am not saying that Americans are pro Nazis. But way too many people have got away under the camouflage of 1st amendment right, like so many have gotten away under the 2nd Amendment. American is one of the countries where racial tensions is really high, however people who make racist comments do not always bear the consequence. In South Africa, people would be going to jail for some of the comments that some Americans made.

    The point is, there is never absolute freedom of anything, and honestly, only humble and intelligent people truly value freedom as it comes with consequences and it comes from sacrifice.
    American government has a long long way to go to actually catch up with the rest of the world and fill up those loop holes in its “beloved” constitution

  • Wayne Phillips

    Jim is right just because you have freedom of speach does not give people the right to act like arse holes though some think that's exactly what it means

  • fsfbart

    Jim you sellout!!! Having fun editing and cutting up video's to make your opponents say whatever you want them to say?

  • Jimmie Lee Patterson

    Anthony Scalia and the conservatives ruled in favor that this teenager was allowed to burn a cross on black family's property because it protected his 1st amendment rights. I've continue to tell MAGA hat wearers when they accuse liberals of being hypocrites cuz we preach tolerance. There claim is that libs intolerant of their opinions. I say we're intolerant of your intolerance. We're supposed to tolerate a kid burning a cross on a black family's property?

  • Christopher Chilton-Smith

    Im always baffled by the cognitive dissonance of people who know we should get along and treat each other well but hate "pc" culture.

    Cooperation for mutual benefit is the foundation of any nation, if you aren't willing to make an effort to be respectful, polite and inoffensive then how do you expect others to work with you?

  • BEAT LA

    It's really hard to sound offensive in an Australian accent. The accent itself just naturally comes across as optimistic and laid back for some reason. Oh Jim Jeffries, love that cunt!!! Keep up the great work.

  • Bryan Taylor

    Republicans do the same thing with their Buybulls. They don't have a clue of what's inside that little book of horrors.

  • nobull shiit

    I've been a fan of Jim Jefferies for a long time and I've always watched the videos in addition to all of his comedy but I only subscribed just a moment ago. He's one of the small lights in this recent overwhelming darkness of racism, misogyny, elitism, authoritarianism, and fascism that I ( in what limited ways, to what limited audiences were available to me) have warned about and have been resisting since this surreal, acid soaked, 60's B-Movie that's somehow bern standing in for reality with the rise of Drumpf and his ilk in the United States and across the world.

  • good morning

    Donald Trump is truly, unequivocally, a massive, stinking pile of shit oozing across the face of America while his pig-faced, born again, red neck, white trash followers gobble up this excrement like it was ice cream.

  • Christopher Spanos

    It's a national disgrace how ignorant so many Americans are, which only highlights the urgency of vastly improving the education system. Even worse, instead of being ashamed of their ignorance and wanting to improve themselves, these people are proud of being ignorant and have nothing but disdain and distrust for those who are educated, especially scientists. If given the chance they'd replicate what Pol Pot did in Cambodia with a vengeance, rounding up and slaughtering as many educated people as possible plus those (regardless of color) with any type of foreign accent and of course anyone with darker skin.

  • John Dough

    What's more sad than someone who's not funny at all?
    Someone who was funny years ago… lost his touch… and is now shamefully still claiming hes comically talented.
    You're completely worthless.

  • Justice For All

    Of course Chump supporters thought it was propaganda. You're talking about the ignorant, low IQ trash in our country. Products of in breeding. You can't expect much more from that trash.

  • John Hurley

    Yea i think jim plays puppet to higher execs but he had to really rally the troops to say cunt in comedy clubs.

  • thorified

    Oh how original vulgar and making fun of dumb conservatives. How is that intellectual insight of Russian collusion working for you. Trash youtube and stopped before this trash ended. Hip dipsh*t

  • Suzanne Rios

    Jim they're all dumb as a can of paint, that's your average, Trump supporter. Not one is smarter than a fifth grader, pathetic!!!???

  • Mac Daddy

    Trumps cult of Red Hat hypochristians, racist, mouth breathing, hate filled perfect display of ignorance are just proving what we all know…. a box of dog shit has more sense and wisdom than most of them.

  • Matthew Phlaum

    By Jim's idiotic logic, a member of the KKK could have a black cake designer make a burning cross cake or a "F— N—-ers" cake. This shit cuts both ways.

  • Wesley Smith

    It's Jim Jeffries, the so called comedian who asks his guest a question then totally cuts out their answer and replaces replaces it with a totally different one. Lying lard ass piece of liberal shit dosent know when to shut the fuck up.

  • loganwgriffith

    Uneducated comes on both sides of the political spectrum. Most of you commenting about Trump supporters not knowing the 1st Amendment don't know it either. Nowhere is there a "separation of church and state" clause. Do you know what the 1st says about religion? "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"
    If a city or state wants to establish an official religion, they are not prohibited. They cannot base anything off of this though, so it would be entirely symbolic, not in keeping with the intent of the Constitution, and honestly unAmerican.
    You probably also assume the 2nd Amendment is about hunting, or that it only covers single shot muskets too.
    "Well I don't know about that"

  • Jeremy Snead

    This dude is a dumb ass. Freedom of speach I is freedom. Placong in legislated punishment on expression allow the select to punish the less furtunate. This dude is a complete dumbass and should educate himself.

  • xlXlMuRd3rCEOlXlx

    This is stupid anyone notice that the Twitter name was blurred! But let’s take their word for it why would lie! Lol I don’t know any conservatives who don’t know what that document is f this guy #WALKAWAY

  • Ayan Ray Baruah

    Doesn't this prove that Americans actually do not care about the Constitution but about the fact that they can "protest" to protect it…???? Just like the "Right to bear arms", you don't actually care about safety, its all about going and watching things go Boom and Bang Bang and in the words of Kevin Hart, "Pichow Pichow"

  • loodlebop

    If having a belief means that you can discriminate against others then why not do whatever you want and claim it's part of your belief? Also aren't people protected by the discrimination of other people's beliefs by that same law?

  • Flux Cluster

    Jimmy, oh Jimmy me lad. Just making sure you realise we haven't forgotten the Avi Yemeni "interview" where you tried to link a man to a shooting, THAT HADNT EVEN HAPPENED AT THE TIME OF THE INTERVIEW and attempted to smear his name in the pursuit of furthering your bonkers left-wing insanity. You, mate, are a liar and one big let down. Well done. Well done.

  • Uncle Creepy

    HILARIOUS COMIC, I JUST HOPE YOU ARE FAIR IN SHOWING IDIOTS OF BOTH SIDES IF YOU DON'T YOU LOSE 50% OF SHEEPLE. THOUGHTS ON GANGRENE NEW DEAL? 😁

  • Asa Coe

    Quote it, "Trump and his supporters are More dangerous than a Catholic priest at a Cub scout meeting on epstein's island."

  • Leslie Sheridan

    TOM STEYER IS BEYOND GREED AND BELIEVABLE! Billionaire and would-be Presidential candidate is running ads online, (YouTube,) asking for donations!! WTF?!!! THIS IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE GREEDY 1%ERS – THEY WON'T USE THEIR OWN FUNDS BUT WANT TO SUCK IT OUT OF US! ABSOLUTELY SHAMEFUL!

  • Jackson man

    This vile disgusting crap Jefferies is the biggest hypocrite going jim your just a vile disgusting liar and fraud plus ive heard your a pedophile

  • Ray Tillman

    I want the freedom to hear the words Jim says, and not a stupid bleep. Its the same as putting black rectangles over bare nipples and pubic hair, its so 1950 ish. Surley we have grown up enough as a world to leave that prudish behavior behind, After all everyone knows what the bleeps mean and what the black rectangles are covering. But i do not object to a warning that swear words might be used, so that younger viewers can be protected, although from my experience they have to be very young to not know all the swear words better than i do.

  • Tucking Friggered

    No, you should not be able to be fired for saying something while not at work. It undermines free speech. It can be used to target people of different political views.

  • cableaddict

    THE FIRST AMENDMENT DOES NOT SPECIFICALLY PROTECT YOUR RIGHT TO SAY ANYTHING YOU WANT. 
    – only your basic right to speak.  
    You can't incite others to riot, or to commit a crime. You can't slander someone. You can't "yell fire in a crowded theater." etc. – And Sean Hannity cannot lie to people every day, with the intent of getting them to vote against thier own best interests. That asshole should be in prison for several lifetimes.

  • Geoffrey Edwards

    America: we have freedom and rights yeah. The freedom and right to do what the fuck we're told or there's consequences. They got a place for us. County jails, prisons and morgues……..

  • 111sienna

    it's like having a guest from afar coming to live in your house then starts telling your how everything you attained is wrong and his way is best. If the guest doesn't like your world then they should leave and go back to theirs.

  • Thomas Stecyk

    Jim, did you not say that you had no idea what your countries constitution says at all? Is seem to remember some thing said to that affect…
