Pro-Homosexual Tyranny: Quashing Free Speech, Too

Pro-Homosexual Tyranny: Quashing Free Speech, Too

In the People’s Republic of Oregon, it wasn’t enough for homosexual tyrants and their “useful idiots” in government to run a Christian family out of business. It wasn’t even enough to fine them $135,000 for exercising their religious freedom. It still wasn’t even enough for homosexual tyrants to deny them the opportunity to receive financial assistance from those who support them.

Orwellian Newspeak and the Death of Free Speech

Orwellian Newspeak and the Death of Free Speech

How do you change the way people think? You start by changing the words they use. In totalitarian regimes—a.k.a. police states—where conformity and compliance are enforced at the end of a loaded gun, the government dictates what words can and cannot be used.

Obama’s Latest First Amendment Assault

Obama’s Latest First Amendment Assault

The Obama Administration and their cohorts launched a double-barreled assault on the First Amendment this week. Perhaps jealous of their speech regulator counterparts, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) held a hearing to begin the discussion of how they can regulate political speech on the Internet. Here’s a newsflash to the FEC — you cannot.

Thomas More Society Defends Pro-Life Displays of Gruesome Images

Liberals are masters of hypocrisy, and when it comes to freedom of speech, they valiantly embrace the old double standard. They’ll bring lawsuits till the cows come home to defend some pervert’s “right” to distribute pornography or other offensive materials to the public or to engage in displays of nudity and obscenity on public streets, even though children may be present, but they’ll fight like maniacs against public displays of pro-life messages and disturbing images of aborted babies, because—they claim—children might see them and be upset.

More than 1,000 Pastors to Challenge Unconstitutional IRS Regs

More than 1,000 Pastors to Challenge Unconstitutional IRS Regs

The number of pastors registered to participate in Alliance Defending Freedom’s fifth annual Pulpit Freedom Sunday has exceeded 1,000, nearly doubling last year’s participation. Registration continues until Oct. 7, so the number continues to rise. “Pastors should decide what they preach from the pulpit, not the IRS,” said Senior Legal Counsel Erik Stanley. “It’s outrageous for pastors and churches to be threatened or punished by the government for applying biblical teachings to all areas of life, including candidates and elections.”

WSJ Indirectly Indicts South Dakota RINOs

WSJ Indirectly Indicts South Dakota RINOs

A lot of the RINOs here in South Dakota (including some that never use their name when leaving their liberal comments here and there) have been squawking about various individuals and groups who have been exposing the liberal votes and actions of RINOs in South Dakota government who masquerade as Republicans. A recent Wall Street Journal article discusses how homosexual activists use government regulation of “free” speech to punish and intimidate people for opposing their agenda, and it sheds some important light on the “Republican Civil War” going on in South Dakota.

Can the Islamic Faith Tolerate Criticism?

The violent response to an anti-Muslim movie has cast the subject of religious tolerance into the limelight. Is Islam a religion that can tolerate criticism? Can Muslims bear up gracefully when their religion is insulted? As I wrote last week, when it comes to Islam as practiced and understood in much of the Middle East, the short answer to these questions appears to be “no.”

Obama Won’t Rule Out Prosecuting Criticism of Islam

Islamic extremists have for some time been trying through the UN to criminalize criticism of Islam. The Obama Administration is, predictably, completely onboard with giving Islam protected status (while the Administration continues its war on Christianity). It is therefore not surprising that Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez refuses to assure us that the government won’t seek to criminalize free speech against Islam.

U.S. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Martine E. Dempsey speaking in 2011

General Schofield’s Definition of Discipline

General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, recently criticized former military members for expressing their political opinion. I am ultra-surprised that now General Martin Dempsey wants to join the call to curtail the US Constitution’s guarantee of free speech. Dempsey’s comments were especially surprising, given the politicization to which the Obama Administration has subjected the military, and even encouraged among active duty military personnel.

Follow the Money…To Environmental Extremists

Follow the Money…To Environmental Extremists

Environmentalists are always predictably outraged at the money spent by energy companies in politics, claiming the philistine big oil interest is buying and bullying its way into a political advantage. But if liberals claim that this big oil money is buying political outcomes and muzzling environmentalists with an average of $12.5 million a year, how much political clout do they think $100 million dollars a year from their own coffers will buy?
