There are concerns that the political left in North American is trying to shout down any conservative views they don’t agree with.
In this video, CBN News looks at the political left’s efforts to stop free speech and punish conservative values in Europe. The goal is to intimidate any who disagree with their extremist views.
The video suggests the left has the same goal for North America.
A few months ago, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission floated a scheme that would see government
regulators … err researchers in news rooms around America. They would effectively monitor what news stories, reporters were working on.
But why is this even necessary? All they need to do is read newspapers or watch news programing to find out what the various media were working on and why would that even be necessary in a free country? Fortunately, that plan was shouted down.
In the U.S., Senator Edward J. Markey D-Mass and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y. introduced the Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 in early April. That bill would have federal
regulators … err researchers scouring the internet looking for what they consider hate speech.
For some, stating marriage should be between a man and woman is hate speech. Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich was recently forced to resign simply because six years earlier he contributed $1,000 to the Proposition 8 amendment in California that supported marriage as being between a man and a woman.
Since even liberals are denouncing this bill, it seems there is little chance of it passing.
But it should concern us that these ideas are even being considered in a democratic society.
I recently posted an article/video of a University of Connecticut professor trying to intimidate and stop Christian evangelists from speaking out against evolution on campus. That episode was so bad, the University felt it needed to release a statement:
“Everyone has the right to exercise free speech on our campuses. At the same time, we expect our faculty to act in a way that promotes civil discourse and to express themselves respectfully. The use of abusive language and the confrontation posture seen here are inconsistent with UConn’s values.”
Frightening times we are living in
