HR 288 and the repeal of Freedom of Speech in America
No one can write upon the subject of the repeal of the First Amendment Right to Freedom of Speech any more thoroughly or eloquently than Baron Bodissey at the Gates of Vienna in his most recent post Free to say what?. In "Free to say what?" the Baron includes the wording of HR 288 which turns the book Animal Farm on its ear; reduces our genuine efforts at "civil rights" into mockery; and spits on the grave and the efforts of Martin Luther King Jr. when he worked for the rights of "equal opportunity." CAIR has co-opted Dr. King's efforts and has turned all Muslims into victims. CAIR, working with John Conyers and his fellow travelers has been busy softening up Americans so that, as a nation, we are nearly powerless to protect our nation's freedoms, the US Constitution, not to mention the litany of other things being shredded such as the notion of a "sovereign" nation. HR 288 must be defeated. We thought the McCain-Fiengold Campaign Reform attack on our freedom of expression (during political seasons) would be struck down by the Men-in-Black but it was upheld. Are you willing to risk your freedom of speech upon the will of 9 souls in black robes? Read the Baron's post, read HR 288, and defeat it. While I can still say it, let me mention that the Islamists want to dominate the world. The institutionalization of "hate speech" laws and the inability to further discuss openly and freely the issues of our day will be the straw that broke America. Political correctness - laughable on its face, but damning in its implementation - has set the stage. Speak out and speak freely while you can. Islamists and radical imams can burn the American flag in the streets of New York City; hatred can be preached from the mosques; Jewish ladies can be attacked and killed/injured by a fanatical Muslim on his way home from a Friday night at a mosque in Seattle. Protect the freedom of speech we all have. We must be free to discuss openly the plans and schemes of those who wish to silence us and to institute Sharia Law. Please, do not allow John Conyers, the CAIR front-man, get away with destroying our most precious freedom.
