    Intolerance: Those who say "it can't happen here" to the bully-boy tactics that prevent "hate speech" in Canada haven't been paying attention. It does happen here, the First Amendment notwithstanding. You don't have to love what Ann Coulter says, or the incendiary way she says it, to be on the side of the best-selling conservative author when it comes to the blatant discrimination she suffered north of the border this week. Left-wing demonstrators at the University of Ottawa made it impossible for Coulter to speak there Tuesday night. But the menacing crowd might have been small enough to handle had...

    (NEW YORK) - It isn't news nor is it slanted to say that FOX News has always been the propaganda arm of the Republican Party, willing to twist facts and even lie to promote the Republican agenda. But the election of President Obama in 2008 pushed FOX News into outright hate-mongering and incitement of violence, which is intolerable in a democracy. Tell FOX News advertisers to cancel their ads Here are some examples of intolerable hate speech and incitement to violence: 6/30/09 Glenn Beck agreed with guest who urged bin Laden to attack U.S. with nuclear weapons. 7/25/09 Neil Cavuto...

    BBC ^ | June 4 | BBC
    Several hundred civilians have been shot dead by the Chinese army during a bloody military operation to crush a democratic protest in Peking's (Beijing) Tiananmen Square. Tanks rumbled through the capital's streets late on 3 June as the army moved into the square from several directions, randomly firing on unarmed protesters. The injured were rushed to hospital on bicycle rickshaws by frantic residents shocked by the army's sudden and extreme response to the peaceful mass protest. Demonstrators, mainly students, had occupied the square for seven weeks, refusing to move until their demands for democratic reform were met. The protests began...

That's how things don't get done in this town." {snip} "One prong of the Great Unifier's plan is to isolate elected Republicans from their voters and supporters by making the argument about me and not about his plan.

    "We're here, we're queer, get used to it!" Dozens of lesbian activists at Smith College climbed in through windows and stormed the podium in a riot scene shortly after Ryan Sorba began a speech on his upcoming book, The Born Gay Hoax. The melee forced an end to the speech before a packed hall in the library on the Northhampton campus. Uniformed police officers and a plainclothes security guard were in the room but mostly just stood and watched. Rather than take action against the rioters, the officers and a university official walked to the podium and ordered Sorba to...

    House Speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) has pledged to take up a lobbying reform proposal that would impose new regulations on speech by grassroots organizations, while providing a loophole in the rules for large corporations and labor unions. The legislation would make changes to the legal definition of “grassroots lobbying” and require any organization that encourages 500 or more members of the general public to contact their elected representatives to file a report with detailed information about their organization to the government on a quarterly basis. The report would include identifying the organization’s expenditures, the issues focused on and the members...

    NEW YORK (CNN) -- The Rev. Al Sharpton said Wednesday he refused to accept an apology from actor Michael Richards, who spouted a racist rant at a comedy club last week. But Sharpton said he did agree to meet with Richards to try to start a process to address racism in America. "I [told Richards] you need to sit down and deal with this," Sharpton told CNN. "This is not about accepting an apology, this is about starting a process to really deal with the continual problem of racism in this country." (Watch Richards' meltdown on stage -- 1:39 )...
  • Proposition 89: Corporate contribution limits called ploy, fair

    Sacramento Bee ^ | 10/29/6 | Jim Sanders
    Dollar limits on free speech? Perhaps. A fiercely contested measure on the Nov. 7 ballot would make California the first state to restrict corporate spending on ballot measures, a practice that has been treated as free political speech for decades. Proposition 89 would ban corporations from spending more than $10,000 to support or oppose California ballot measures. A key legal question is whether corporate profits are fair game for such curbs because they stem from consumers who paid for a product or service, not a political cause. Opponents call Proposition 89 a blatant ploy by its sponsor, the California Nurses...

However, before she could get to the part that meant the most to her, Christ, her microphone went dead. Her speech was in no way endorsed by her school, however the school directly participated in censoring her free speech.

    A Contentious and Unforgettable Night at the Old GOP BallparkMonthly Republican district meetings are usually more staid than argumentative and more sedentary than physical. Tonight's GOP District 22 meeting was definitely one of the exceptions. I have heard that the Phoenix police have been called in to other GOP district meetings in the recent past. Normally, there are more laughs than raised voices in D22 meetings. District 22 basically encompasses the City of Gilbert, where we are only a month away from a Town Council run-off election between a classic conservative Republican -- incumbent Dave Peterson -- and a WISH...

They, along with their agents who threatened advertisers, sued shareholders, and ginned up false 'public outrage', and with the deafening SILENCE of the corrupt liberal media, succeeded in suppressing the free speech of decorated war veterans.

    Film-maker's funeral sparks violence From Anthony Browne in Amsterdam RELIGIOUS violence flared yesterday as thousands turned out to line the streets at the funeral of Theo van Gogh, the murdered film-maker and vocal critic of Islam. Two Dutch churches were attacked by arsonists, in seeming retaliation for earlier attacks on mosques, while an opinion poll showing that 40 per cent of Dutch people no longer considered Muslims welcome underlined a rapid deterioration of tolerance in the previously liberal Netherlands. Mr van Gogh, whose last film, Submission, criticised the treatment of women under Islam, was cremated in an upbeat ceremony broadcast...

This Republican office is closed Sunday. We reported it to 911 (state police, as the local police have limited hours and were not on duty). We also reported it to local Rep. Stephen Maitland's office (on an answering machine as they are not open), and reported it to the AP. As noted above in...
