Declaration of Independence, from US History:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

Signing the Declaration amounted to signing your own death warrant. Why? From Dictionary:

[D]ivine right of kings definition

The doctrine that kings and queens have a God-given right to rule and that rebellion against them is a sin. This belief was common through the seventeenth century

So the social justice warriors, or special snowflakes, don’t want the power of free citizens, they demand the divine power of kings, from Reason:

“There’s nothing outrageous about stamping out bigoted speech,” read the subhed of Slate writer Osita Nwanevu’s piece responding to the Murray episode. The election of Donald Trump to the presidency has, in Nwanevu’s view, dealt a blow to the idea that “those with the best command of facts and reason… will emerge victorious.” The implication: the entire project of using reasoned debate to overcome harmful ideas in place of brute force might therefore be worth abandoning. How the worthy cause of halting Trump’s anti-cosmopolitan agenda could possibly be served by a further retreat from liberal values is left unexplained by the author.

King George III deemed it a hanging offense to question his so-called divine right to rule. Likewise bigoted social justice warriors at Claremont declare their supposed god-given right to declare what speech is acceptable and which is not. None dare call it freedom.  I having none of it.  Are you?
