Suppressing free speech

Posted by Larry on March 29th, 2005 filed in Rant

The Secret Service revealed that we were “ID’ed” when local Republican staffers saw a bumper sticker on the car we drove which said “No More Blood For Oil.” Evidently, the free speech expressed on one bumper sticker is cause enough to eject three citizens from a presidential event. (Similarly, someone was ejected from Bush’s Social Security privatization event in Arizona the same day simply for wearing a Democratic t-shirt.)

After allowing taxpayers to finance his privatization events (let’s call them what they really are after all,) and after using the White House communications apparatus to set them up, Bush is privatizing the ticket distribution and security staffing at his events to the Republican Party. The losers are not just taxpayers, but anyone who values the First Amendment. Under the banner of a “private event” the Republican Party is excluding citizens from seeing their president because of the lone sin of expressing the wrong idea on a bumper sticker or t-shirt. The question for Americans is – will we allow our freedom to be privatized?

    Has everyone forgotten all of the articles about “Nazi Germny” and the Bush Family.
    This whole “regiem” seem to stop at nothing to keep the truth from coming out.

    Why doesn’t he just put a swastika on his arm.

    All “slick Wille” did was screw women, not the nation, and certainly not congress. And yet, why am I a republican?
