-By Warner Todd Huston We are seeing news of left-wingers' fascist attacks all across the country. With the resignation of Mozilla's CEO who only had his position for a week, to Dem. Senate Majority "leader" Harry Reid from the floor of the U.S. Senate attempting to destroy the Constitutional right of conservatives to donate to political causes to Obama verbally attacking individual Americans and using his IRS to destroy his enemies, we live in perilous times for freedom of speech. Without a doubt Obama's government is constantly whipping up hatred for anyone who disagrees with the liberal line. So, at 10PM Eastern on Saturday, April 5, Fox is airing FOX News Reporting: Enemies of the State to expound on this anti-free speech crusade being perpetrated by people and entities ranging from President Obama, Senate Democrat leader Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, to the NSA and the IRS and others on the left-wing of the American political sphere. The one-hour special will be hosted by FNC’s Jon Scott and will focus on Americans who have found themselves in the crosshairs of their own government. During the program, Scott will be joined by FNC senior national correspondent John Roberts and co-anchor of America’s News HQ Greg Jarrett to investigate four issues where private citizens found themselves in battles against the government...

-By Warner Todd Huston Judging by this whole Chick-Fil-A oppression program liberals are engaging in, it’s no wonder Jonah Goldberg had a hit with his recent book, Liberal Fascism.

-By Warner Todd Huston We are soon to be regaled by yet another movie from Hollyweird that likely misunderstands the difference between liberty (or freedom) and equality. This we might infer from the recently released advance plot synopsis for the upcoming movie Elysium from Director Neil Blomkamp, director of the surprise 2009 Sci Fi hit... Read more »
-By Warner Todd Huston Earlier today, *Aaron Worthing's illicitly imposed muzzle was lifted from him by a successful stay of foolish Judge Vaughey's "flagrantly unconstitutional prior restraint upon" upon Worthing's rights to free speech. And then? Well, then some criminal leftist SWATed him. For those unaware of the details of this story check out Dana Loesch's May 25 post here. But essentially, a convicted left-wing, domestic terrorist named Brett Kimberlin began a campaign to use nuisance lawsuits and vicious, false accusations to get Mr. Worthing sent to jail because Worthing had the temerity to expose him for the criminal he is.
Then, a dull witted, aged "judge" that has no clue what all these Internets stuff is all about, stepped on Mr. Worthing's rights to free speech with an illogically constituted injunction. When the stay of Vaughey's order summarily quashing Worthing's right to write blog posts about his ordeal was lifted, that gave back toWorthing his Constitutional right to talk about his situation...

Those of you that support... Read more »
