Daily Signal: ‘No other’ freedom as ‘widely and intensely attacked’ as free speech


Free speech under President Obama’s presidency has faced unprecedented setbacks, especially when considering IRS targeting of Americans for their political beliefs.

The Daily Signal has the commentary:

The Constitution has long been subject to attacks from individuals hostile to its guarantees of freedom, economic opportunity, and limited government, but in recent days no other provision has been as widely and intensely attacked as the First Amendment…

The First Amendment has also been caught in the crosshairs of a battle between the IRS and various conservative organizations. As a result of the IRS inappropriately targeting conservative organizations because of their “disfavored viewpoints,” they were subjected to long delays, investigations, and intrusive and unjustified interrogations about their opinions, views, members, and practices.

As a federal appeals court recently said, the IRS “utterly failed” to apply “the tax law with integrity and fairness.” Instead, its behavior was a “blatant violation of the First Amendment.”

The IRS under President Obama’s corrupt IRS commissioner refuses to be guided by the rule of law and denies the basic American right to free speech. Click here to help Tea Party Patriots encourage lawmakers to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen!
