Obama Continues War On Free Speech

 

 

The Obama Administration has declared war on the First Amendment — free speech. Groups that try to educate Americans about the Constitution have been put through the IRS wringer. The Justice Department scoured the emails and tracked the whereabouts of a television news reporter. These are just a couple of cases in which the Obama Administration turned its back on the First Amendment, and its protection of freedom of speech and the free exercise of one’s deeply held beliefs.

Furthermore, a number of military members have recently disclosed an alarming rise in First Amendment violations against military chaplains and members.

For example, one service member received a severe reprimand from his commanding officer for respectfully expressing his faith’s religious position in a personal religious blog. An Air Force officer was told that he could not keep a Bible on his desk because it might offend someone. And, an Army training presentation labeled Evangelical Christianity as an example of religious extremism, equating it to such organizations as the KKK and al-Qaeda. “
