Conservative Bloggers (and free speech) Under Attack From the Left...

Liberty -vs- Tyranny



Recent attempts by presumably {nefarious} left wingers to silence conservative thought/views have allegedly turned criminal. Because of the criminal nature of their activities it is proper for federal law enforcement to investigate these activities and punish violators appropriately under the law.

The right to free political speech is guaranteed under our Constitution (the Bill of Rights), while there exists no right to suppress any political viewpoint. I am fully aware this freedom is specific to the citizen's right to express dissenting political opinion against their government, equally, if not more important is that the constitution prevents the government from suppressing dissenting views.

In the current volatile environment, with some progressives allegedly engaging in criminal activity to silence conservative thought every liberty minded American, be they liberal or conservative must renounce such behavior and support efforts to get the Justice Department to investigate and put a stop to the alleged activities.

American Center for Law and Justice - SWAT-ing and other intimidation tactics to silence conservative viewpoints are quickly becoming a favorite tool of the radical left.

Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) has recognized this growing problem and is calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate the SWAT-ting cases to see if federal laws have been violated. In a letter to the Attorney General, Sen. Chambliss wrote:

Any potentially criminal action that incites fear, seeks to silence a dissenting opinion, and collaterally wastes the resources of law enforcement should be given close scrutiny at all levels. . . . Regardless of any potential political differences that may exist, threats and intimidation have no place in our national political discourse.

The ACLJ has a long history of successfully defending free speech, and we look forward to defeating this latest attempt to threaten and intimidate conservatives into silence. {Read More}

Attorney General Holder has an opportunity to send a powerful message through relentless action to stop this apparently growing trend to muffle and ultimately shutdown political speech not supported by certain groups. It is criminal, it is un American, and it must stop. NOW!

  1. The rabid left will only get angrier, more dishonest and more violent as the campaign season wears on. They are intellectually and morally bankrupt, with no redeeming qualities to run on.

    It would be entertaining to watch if the times were not so serious.

    1. What is most interesting is the very same can be said of the "rabid right."

    1. What is your definition of "rabid", or perhaps the better question would be ... what is your understanding of the definition of "rabid?"

      I ask so we may be on the same page as to the understanding of terminology before I answer your question.

  3. my understanding of the word is irrelevant, Les. I was just asking because it appears from your comment that you know of some groups on the right that are comparable to those groups on the left as described by Silverfiddle and i was just curious as to who they were.

    1. Well then I will simply say, in a very general sense, anyone who attempts to curtail liberty and and or free speech either through activities discussed in the post, or through legislation.

  4. ok, Les, i guess i was just revealing my ignorance by asking the question because i have never heard of anyone from the right who was attempting to curtail speech through activities as discussed in the post or activities similar to them. and i was just hoping that you could tell me so i could research it

    An example? I read to the end expecting to find one, but did not. I don't know how you can make such allegations and then provide zero proof that this is happening.

As this site encourages free speech and expression any and all honest political commentary is acceptable. Comments with cursing or vulgar language will not be posted.

Effective 8/12/13 Anonymous commenting has been disabled. This unfortunate action was made necessary due to the volume of Anonymous comments that are either off topic or serve only to disrupt honest discourse..

I apologizes for any inconvenience this necessary action may cause the honest Anonymous who would comment here, respect proper decorum and leave comments of value. However, The multitude of trollish attack comments from both the left and right has necessitated this action.

Thank you for your understanding... The management.
