    In accordance with a ten year plan of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to implement United Nations’ Resolution 16:18 which criminalizes all criticism of Islam worldwide, the U.S. House of Representatives issued H. Res. 569 condemning violence, bigotry, and "hateful rhetoric" toward Muslims in the United States. This proposal comes on the heels of Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s post San Bernardino promise to prosecute anyone guilty of anti-Muslim speech. It is clear that Ms. Lynch is firing a canon at a fly. According to FBI’s annual Uniform Crime Report, there were 1014 hate crime incidents motivated by religious bias...

    The administration of the prestigious University of Chicago has drawn a line in the sand on one of higher education's hottest topics: whether what some students see as protection from hate speech trumps the traditional right to free speech. In a letter to incoming students, Dean of Students Jay Ellison cast the university's stance as a matter of "academic freedom." The letter has been circulated widely. "We do not support so-called 'trigger warnings,' we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation of intellectual 'safe spaces' where individuals can retreat...

    In todays public policy arena, winning ideas rarely are decided by sound logic, accurate facts, or even by the most votes. Instead, content filters and algorithms, meticulously engineered by social media companies like Facebook and Twitter, intentionally steer public debate in the direction of their owners personal politics; and, not coincidentally, toward the politics of their liberal friends in Washington and Sacramento.For starters, consider Facebook the Big Daddy of social media. There have been numerous reports of Facebooks algorithm taking down popular pages of pro-gun organizations. But even this example of the new censorship pales when viewed in the...

    When Obama vowed to use his pen and phone to circumvent Congress and impose his will on America, he was actually telling the truth for once. In the latest example of lawless decrees coming from the executive branch, the Obama administration is taking aim at gunsmiths and free speech. Basically, if a recent regulation disguised as "guidance" is not stopped, gunsmithing an American tradition stretching back centuries that was crucial in the War for Independence will be effectively made illegal, experts say. Another controversial element of the decree would purport to unconstitutionally criminalize many forms of gun-related speech...

Instead, it is an anti-white anti-free speech mob. Evidence of my contention isnt very hard to gather. In fact, you have to have your head buried pretty deep in the ground in order to miss it. Consider the following examples: -In August of 2015, Black Lives Matter protestors overtook a Bernie Sanders event in Seattle.

Yet, as Kimberley Strassel argues and details through first-hand accounts, both campaign finance are disclosure reform have been hijacked as weapons against free speech and free association, becoming one of the most powerful tools of those intent on silencing their political opposition.

This is no truer than those screaming children at our universities along with their liberal professors screaming for muscle or those threatening riots if a particular candidate is elected President of the United States.

If you say the word "brownie" out loud, you might hurt the feelings of a person with brown skin. And that's bad. That's why we have the police. On June 16, police were called to an unlikely scene: an end-of-the-year class party at the William P. Tatem Elementary School in Collingswood. A third grader had made a comment about the brownies being served to the class. After another student exclaimed...

Perdue said his church has been advertising on transit benches in the city for the past three years, using various Jesus-related campaigns. Two years ago benches said "Celebrate Jesus," last year benches said "Experience Jesus," and now benches say "Jesus is Lord."

    Free speech? What free speech. You were asking for it. Its the ultimate blame the victim line, and its been used in an attempt to excuse everything from theft, to Rape, to Murder. If you didnt leave it out, it wouldnt have been taken. If you didnt insult that guy, he wouldnt have punched you. If you didnt dress all pretty the rapist wouldnt have pounced. Now, Sam Liccardo - the Hillary-supporting mayor of sanctuary city San Jose - is employing that argument in an effort to absolve violent rioters of wrongdoing.

    Excerpted from The Daily Caller: Controversy has followed commentator Milo Yiannopoulos on his Most Dangerous Faggot tour, and his Thursday appearance at the University of California, Irvine is proving to be no exception. UC-Irvine College Republicans are planning to distribute 100 infant pacifiers at a school-sanctioned safe zone training event taking place just hours before the Yiannopoulos event, UC-Irvine College Republicans said in a press release. The Gerber Baby pacifiers will include an attached label with the caption, I survived! Milo tour 2016. UC-Irvine Republican Club president, Ariana Rowlands told the Orange County Register she fears for her fellow students...

    Apparently this never got posted here because of the limitations of probation, so here you go: So...here we are...18 years. Mostly good. Clintons a Liar, Dr Raouls costumes, AppyPappy's daughter singing the National Anthem, Kristinns wonderful reporting. The repugnant lies of Classy Green Eyed Blonde and DeepInTheHurtgenForest. The surreal cryptic posts of quidam. The lib trolls like Eschoir. The March for Justice? Heady times. They really were. Fighting against a President who had the gall to look us in the eye and lie to us. But the last 9 months? Absolutely unrecognizable. A lot of great FReepers run off. And...

    State Rep. Anthony Kern said he handed out materials as part of a church group on the Glendale Community College campus for several years without any trouble. But one year, all of a sudden they came up with this free speech zone which was way away from the people, the Republican told the Arizona Capitol Times. That inspired Kern to introduce House Bill 2615, which broadens campus free speech zones to the entire public college campus as opposed to designated areas. It provides students the right to exercise their First Amendment rights without concerns about the time, place and manner...

    Colleges are supposed to be laboratories for ideas where debates are encouraged and a diverse set of viewpoints are welcome. Today, only liberalism is allowed and our students are not being educated, but indoctrinated It happened again this week at DePaul University in Chicago, IL. Another conservative speaker was harassed by liberal activists. In this case, Breitbart contributor Milo Yiannopoulos was not allowed to finish his presentation to a group of students. He was bullied and threatened and his speech was literally shut down by a group of Black Lives Matter activists. In fact, one of the free speech haters...

    The explicit aim of the Istanbul Process -- currently backed by the Obama administration -- is to make it an international crime to criticize Islam. A Muslim fundamentalist group is organizing a conference focused on turning Austria and other European countries into Islamic states. The "Caliphate Conference 2012" will be held on March 10 in the Austrian town of Vsendorf, situated just south of Vienna. The main theme of the event will be "The Caliphate: The State Model of the Future." The conference is being organized by Hizb ut-Tahrir [Party of Liberation], a pan-Islamic extremist group that seeks to establish...

    Well, it happened again. Except this time, it was even worse. Last night our old friend Milo Yiannopoulos had his speech at DePaul University disrupted by a couple delicate flowers. I myself spoke at DePaul back around 2007, and even then there was a threat of protest, after a leftist professor (who had zero publications of significance, youll be astonished to learn) wrote a column in the student newspaper accusing me of being a white supremacist which in non-hysterical language simply meant I was to the right of Bob Dole. I was ready for them, believe me, but none...

    Its a classic example of hell-bound good intentions. Im not going to go as far as George Carlinbutt I will say that this whole mess started when progressives started to idolize children. First we had childproof caps, child restraints, child car seats and helmets for everything. It grew into grief counselors at school initially on an ad hoc basis to deal with the unexpected death of a schoolmate because their kids parents couldnt be expected to handle that, due to their own grief. Butt once the school budgets expanded to include full time on-staff counselors it became de rigueur...

    My former attorneys at the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) recently filed a lawsuit they never should have had to file. In the suit, they are representing a Christian student group at North Carolina State University (NCSU). At issue is an NCSU policy requiring a permit for any kind of student speech or communication anywhere on campus. This policy is a direct affront to the First Amendment, which is the only permit needed to speak on a public university campus. The policy itself is outrageous. To make matters worse, NCSU only selectively enforces the policy as they did against the plaintiffs,...
