Sophie Scholl was a young nonviolent university student, appealing only to the hearts and minds of fellow citizens to return to their conscience, to abhor evil and to reclaim Free Speech. It wasn't her choice to be tried in an idiotic and irrational kangaroo court, much less to be convicted and then immediately executed by guillotine. Nevertheless, she gave her life in defense of Freedom and Liberty. Sophie's last recorded words just before her execution were "How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to give themselves up individually to a righteous cause."Read more
Considering the renewed and intensified attacks on Free Speech, Citizens for Free Speech is doubling its efforts to defend and protect the First Amendment from annihilation.
Anyone who thinks there will be a return to normal in America will soon meet the ugly reality that the attacks on American sovereignty and Constitution have only just begun. The globalists who are now openly declaring war on America will not stop until we thoroughly and completely reject them.Read more
Patrick Wood published Blaylock On Vaccines: What You Need To Know For Informed Consent in Blog 2021-06-04 10:49:29 -0700
Informed Consent is a huge Free Speech issue because of massive censorship and denial of information that should be freely provided to all citizens.
Prior to taking any unapproved drug, you have the right to receive a broad and complete spectrum of information about the potential effects of those drugs on your body, in order for you to give “informed consent” or to refuse. Dr. Blaylock wrote this especially for this purpose.
For anyone contemplating vaccination for the COVID virus, this is the essential information that you will not receive from your doctor or health care professional. However, all of the information presented here is already in the public domain and readily available if you know where to look for it. Dr. Blaylock has that knowledge and is sharing it with you! - CFFS Editor
Patrick Wood published Free Speech Has Legal And Ethical Confines, Propaganda Does Not in Blog 2021-04-21 08:41:26 -0700
The non-profit organization that I founded in 2018, Citizens for Free Speech, is weary of the constant propaganda that all speech is protected by the First Amendment, no matter how vile, ignorant or deceptive it might be. It’s time to set the record straight and put some sanity back into the First Amendment and our exercise of those rights.Read more
Patrick Wood published Biden Administration Ramping Up For New Battle Over Net Neutrality in Blog 2021-03-29 13:27:29 -0700
Their appears to be a new initiative sweeping in with the Biden Administration. Namely, to take over the basic infrastructure of the Internet and to ramp up the intensity of censorship of any narrative other than their own. The faux warring between Congress and Big Tech obscures the fact that they are both on the same page, but Congress wants even more censorship.Read more
Patrick Wood published CFFS Condemns Cancel Culture after Law Professor Resigns over Compelled Speech in Press 2021-03-25 20:40:47 -0700
Mesa, AZ – Georgetown law professor David Batson sat in his chair and said nothing as his university colleague analyzed the performance of her students and lamented the lower ranking of some of her African-American students. As it turns out, remaining silent was his fatal mistake.Read more
It is very effective and important to distribute the Dr. Blaylock brochure, Face Masks Post Serious Risks to the Healthy. To date, members have passed out tens of thousands all over the nation, and we constantly get positive feedback from recipients on how much it has helped them. Keep a good supply of brochures on hand and do not hesitate to hand them out. Here are some ideas for you to keep in mind:
- When someone has their mask below their nose - They are half-way there to taking it off. This type of person is almost always a willing recipient of a brochure, and will often show it to others.
- When someone isn't wearing a mask at all - Give them a brochure and encourage them to join Citizens for Free Speech. They will often be thrilled to find some like-minded people.
- When you are out and about - Leave a brochure on the table, on the couch/chair in the waiting room, in a shopping cart, etc.
- When you see someone struggling with wearing a mask - People who are short of breath or have other medical conditions definitely need to have a brochure.
About the Citizen Ninja Summer Series
Citizen Ninja's are ordinary people who stand up to power to make a difference in their community. They don't wait for others to speak up. Instead, Citizen Ninjas step out of their comfort zone to nimbly challenge powerful entities that disenfranchise the public and reduce citizen's power.
This is a live online training for budding activists who want to make an impact in the community but don't know how to start or what to do to engage in local politics. It tells how to use the Citizen Ninja powers -- civic knowledge, self-restraint, self-assertion and self-reliance -- for maximum influence.
In the training you will learn how to:
- Conquer Fear
- Be Assertive
- Identify Your Audience
- Ask a Question
- Make a Statement
- Neutralize Your Opponent

The First Amendment is very clear:

The Great American Mask Rip Off (GAMRO)
GAMRO is a peaceful demonstration of CFFS members exercising their First Amendment rights by displaying motivational and educational signs on busy streets in their communities. Demonstration size is purposely small, with 12-18 people comprising a "squad" for each geographic location. The ideal shift time will be 2 hours of daylight, preferably in the afternoon and well before dusk. No nighttime activities should be scheduled.
Any CFFS Volunteer can decide to be a Squad Leader. A Leader will be responsible for soliciting and guiding the Squad members into action. These responsibilities will primarily include,
- Recruiting, screening and communicating with volunteers who will fill the Squad
- Securing and managing collateral such as signs and literature
- Posting Meetup information on the CFFS site where Squad members can RSVP for a given demonstration date
- Providing training and orientation for Squad members prior to a street event
- Providing situational awareness during the event to protect the event and members of the Squad.
GAMRO events will stick to public sidewalks, staying off of private property, while facing street traffic as people drive by. The message we display will be directed exclusively to passers-by.
Since the object of the Great American Mask Rip Off is to encourage un-masking, Squad members should not wear masks.
We do not wish to dispute with any business that serves the public, and will not enter any business premises for the purpose of protest. We do not wish to engage with law enforcement, nor otherwise draw attention to ourselves.
GAMRO events are not suitable for open carry of firearms. If a Squad member shows up while openly carrying a firearm (legal in most states, of course) and refuses stow the firearm out of sight, then the event should be immediately cancelled and disbanded. Legally allowed or permitted concealed carry is not a problem. The Squad Leader must be sure to advise all Squad members of our policies in advance of every event. Again, our mission is to reduce fear through education and motivation.
Sign graphics suitable for large-format sighs will be made available at no charge for all GAMRO events. Local Squad Leaders can download desired images and transmit to a local sign maker for production. Graphics are designed for a 24"x30" foam board and are very light weight to carry for two hours per event.
Some sign graphics that we are currently using in Phoenix are pictured below. We will be creating additional images and on request, some for your particular state.

Mesa, AZ – Unconstitutional requirements for consumers to wear face masks in privately-owned businesses that serve the public may be a thing of the past in Tennessee, if state legislators approve a newly introduced bill in the state house.

Patrick Wood published Scientism, Not Leftism, Underlies All Big-Tech Censorship in Blog 2021-02-09 14:49:43 -0700
There is a very dark religion at the base of both Technocracy and Transhumanism. That is Scientism. Once understood, the massive censorship at the hands of Big Tech starts to make perfect sense.
Scientism was first proposed by the French philosopher Henri De Saint-Simon (1760-1825). He wrote,
“A scientist, my dear friends, is a man who foresees; it is because science provides the means to predict that it is useful, and the scientists are superior to all other men.”Read more

Patrick Wood, Executive Director and founder of Citizens for Free Speech (CFFS) and a staunch critic of Silicon Valley’s ongoing assault on the First Amendment rights of millions of American Citizens, cheered the aggressive move by the Florida governor.Read more

Free speech is under ferocious attack by Big Tech social media platforms. This is generally viewed as an attack against conservatives on that basis alone. Consequently, the reverse side of that coin views Big Tech as left-wingers in cahoots with Democrat operatives, both of whom have ganged up to gain a political advantage.Read more
