WATCH: Ivy League Students Try To Explain First Amendment

Campus Reform released a new video on Monday that showed how clueless many millennials on college campuses are about the protections guaranteed to them by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips traveled to Columbia University, an Ivy League school, and offered $20 to any person who could name all five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment.

Not one student was able to list the five freedoms, which are freedom of speech, religion, assembly, press, and petition.

While Phillips reported that many students were able to name one or two of the freedoms, many were seen on camera struggling to name even one.

Many of the students argued that once something becomes offensive it should no longer be protected by the First Amendment and that left-wing academics and random individual people should be the ones who decide where the line is regarding what constitutes offensive speech.

After Phillips tried to educate one female student about her rights, she responded: “This is all very tricky.”
