We don’t see much of Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) on TV anymore and that’s largely due to the big dark cloud of controversy hanging over him right now.
According to various news reports, he’s under investigation for allegedly trafficking in underaged girls.
Given the vocal and effective nature of his conservatism, we wouldn’t be surprised at all if this turns out to be just more fake news bullshit.
But again, we don’t know. He has vehemently denied all allegations. And it could just be that the usual networks who booked him are taking a wait-and-see approach to this scandal.
Nevertheless, Gaetz isn’t laying low, per se.
He’s touring with fellow feisty Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia. And the two of them are conducting freedom town halls to remind Americans a) we’re not dead yet; b) our country is still intact; and c) we have an obligation to keep it that way.
Greene and Gaetz were at an America First rally last week in Dalton, Georgia, where the Florida Republican reminded everyone why the first two amendments to our Constitution are so important (and were put at the top of the list).

'Let us use the Constitution to strengthen our argument and our movement. We have a First Amendment right to speak and assemble, and we better use it. The internet's hall monitors out in Silicon Valley, they think they can suppress us, discourage us — maybe if you're just a little less patriotic, maybe if you just conform to their way of thinking a little more, you'll be allowed to participate in the digital world,' Gaetz said. 'Well, you know what? Silicon Valley can't cancel this movement or this rally or this congressman.'
'We have a Second Amendment in this country, and I think we have an obligation to use it. The Second Amendment – this is a little history lesson for all the fake news media. The Second Amendment is not about, it's not about hunting, it's not about recreation, it's not about sports,' continued Gaetz.
'The Second Amendment is about maintaining, within the citizenry, the ability to maintain an armed rebellion against the government if that becomes necessary. I hope it never does, but it sure is important to recognize the founding principles of this nation, and to make sure that they are fully understood,' Gaetz noted.
'Oh they hate that. That'll be the part that gets me kicked off YouTube, talking about our rights and our freedoms,' Gaetz joked.
Well, only partially joked. Of course, he’s right.
But he’s also right about why those two amendments are so vital to maintaining our freedoms.
First we talk about things, then, if need be, we take action to protect our freedoms.
