Free Speech Disappearing For Conservatives and Christians
The momentum of the slippery slope to demolish our inherent rights protected by the first amendment are picking up speed. Back in January of 2014 federal prosecutors threw the book at author and documentary filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza for exaggerated campaign finance law violations. In September 2014 D’Souza was sentenced to five years probation, eight months in a halfway house, a $30,000 fine, community service, and mandatory therapy. Even the liberal Harvard law Professor Alan Dershowitz said the felony sentencing smacked of selective prosecution.
Why? It just so happened that D’Souza had made a highly successful documentary critiquing President Barack Obama. Unfortunately, D’Souza’s admission of guilt set the precedent for a new found attack on the First Amendment. The liberals had tasted blood and they wanted more.
