    Canada is probably one of the worst offenders, with their quake quasi-courts, that are nothing resembling 'courts' as much as 'religious toleration goon squads'. While they cannot, so far, execute anyone, they have no problem closing magazines, fining individuals and silencing them by edict. How long will 'free speech' last here, in the US? Not long:

    The Free World Bars Free Speech

    You can have all the free speech in the world, just as long as nobody hears you.

    Free speech is under assault. The latest wave is the PC police which is an arm of the liberals. If you spout the liberal line you got free speech. If you speak as a conservative you are condemned and attacked.

    American anti-Obama author arrested before Nairobi book launch

    American anti-Obama author arrested before Nairobi book launch | World news | The Guardian

    The Obama campaign has written radio stations in Pennsylvania and Ohio, pressing them to refuse to air an ad from the National Rifle Association.

    Ben Smith's Blog: Obama seeks to take down NRA ad - Politico.com

    the government of the state of Missouri has issued a report "informing" state police that people with third party bumper stickers on their cars or who believe the NAFTA superhighway is an attempt create a North American Union are subversive members of paramilitary militias and potential terrorists.

    American Thinker Blog: Missouri police given chilling instructions

    What has prompted all the furor is that several members of the Obama’s “truth squad” in Missouri are prosecutors or members of law enforcement. They include St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer and St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch. All are Democrats.

    Joyce and McCulloch are featured in a KMOV report by John Mills, in which both say their aim was to refute any false information spread about Obama.

    But when KMOV anchor Russell Kinsaul introduced the report, he said: “The Barack Obama campaign is asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign.”

    Americans concerned about the possible erosion of their civil liberties, including their first amendment right to freedom of speech, should get "in league with the Devil" (conservative columnist Joseph Farah) and join "the ACLU ... who ha tried to secularize America -- I point the finger in their face and say "you helped [9-11] happen." (Rev. Jerry Falwell)


    The ACLU is our nation's guardian of liberty, working daily in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.

    These rights include:

    Your First Amendment rights - freedom of speech, association and assembly; freedom of the press, and freedom of religion.
    Your right to equal protection under the law - protection against unlawful discrimination.
    Your right to due process - fair treatment by the government whenever the loss of your liberty or property is at stake.
    Your right to privacy - freedom from unwarranted government intrusion into your personal and private affairs.

    Harry,

    Could you give us a recent and prominent example of it, one from the liberal camp and one from the conservative camp?
