Twitter Reacts Hilariously When Seldom-Spoken-Of Third Amendment Trends

America’s cynicism in the face of calamity is truly something to behold.

There has been plenty of talk about the First Amendment as of late, as Americans take to the streets in unprecedented numbers to protest racial inequality.

This is a nation who was promised that all men are created equal and that there would be liberty and justice for all, so the sentiment of these demonstrators is no surprise.  The right to say these things and speak truth to power is inalienable, and thanks to its Constitutional provenance, supersedes the curfews and “shelter in place” orders.

But the almighty First Amendment isn’t the only one of our Constitutional rights to get some time in the limelight this week, as the rarely-discussed Third Amendment takes a lap on social media.

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, says he’s hearing that Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser plans to evict at least 1,200 National Guard troops from city hotels after she clashed with President Trump over the handling of George Floyd unrest in the city.

If the reports from his sources are true, he won’t be happy, Lee told “Fox News @ Night.”

“I find this very strange,” Lee said. “They [the soldiers] came here at the request of their country and now, in the middle of it, in the middle of a deployment, in the middle of their fourth consecutive all-nighter, they’re being told they’re not welcome there. That is unpatriotic; that is unacceptable.”

This is where the Third Amendment comes into play.

No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

Twitter had a heyday with the news.

The legal validity of invoking the Third Amendment in this instance is murky, certainly, but only because this is a completely unprecedented situation.
