Tucker Carlson examines the massive suppression of free speech that has developed during the Trump administration. He asks viewers if they feel more free now than when they voted for Trump two years ago. He chronicles the many assaults against free speech for conservatives – and they are shocking when considered all together. Beliefs conventionally described as conservative just five years ago now are described as ‘terrorism.’ Meanwhile, actual terror by the left goes unpunished, and Carlson give an equally shocking sampling of those occurrences as well. Carlson concludes that it is the duty of the government to uphold the rights of all citizens and that Trump needs to do more than just talk about such things and use his constitutional authority to start doing it. [Note that Carlson is talking about constitutional measures based on existing laws, not the declaration of martial law, which some so-called conservatives now are advocating.] -GEG
Tucker Carlson asked Trump voters Wednesday to assess whether or not they feel more confident to express their beliefs since the president was elected.
Carlson said that whether or not President Trump is able to build a wall or effect infrastructure legislation, how the president handles the attempted suppression of free speech may be more important.
He said that conventionally conservative beliefs in the years leading up to Trump’s election are now described as “terrorism,” while actual terror by the left seems to go unnoticed.
Among other examples, he noted a former community college professor who in 2017 allegedly hit Trump supporters with a bike lock during a “free the speech” rally.
Charges were dropped against the professor, Eric Clanton, although he was initially charged with a felony.
Carlson then asked viewers to imagine how former President Barack Obama would have responded if similar incidents happened to his voters while he was in office.
“You think Obama would have done something about that? Hell yes. … You would never get away with threatening an Obama voter for supporting Obama,” he said.

As long as people fail to see a difference between their country and their leaders, as long as they think that men become saints and heroes merely by being elected or appointed to public office, we shall have to endure widespread approval of comments like this.
Robert Mueller suggested to Congress that they have a potential obstruction case, which creates an opening for Congress to Impeach the President anyway. The burden may now be on the President to prove he is innocent.
Thai authorities filed a complaint accusing the couple of breaching a section of the country’s criminal code that relates to threatening the sovereignty of a state, and erosion of a state’s independence – these charges carry a death penalty!
According to a poll recorded in 2016, a stunning 67% of Republican voters thought mass immigration was a critical threat, but only 16% of GOP leaders agreed that it was a serious problem. Politicians serve their donors instead of their constituents, which has led to bad US immigration policies and open borders.

The Supreme ruled that mandatory union dues for people who work in the public sector violate workers’ right to free speech, as it compels them to subsidize speech and political action that they may strongly oppose. Unions will be left to convince workers to join and pay dues voluntarily. Thomas Jefferson said, “To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
