In the United States, the First and Second Amendments in the Bill of Rights protect the exchange of ideas no matter their popularity, and the ownership of firearms. These two things are the most powerful weapons against totalitarianism and communism. It should come as no surprise then, that the Left would seek to restrict and diminish both of these rights, in any way they can.
Though the Left’s war on the latter is obvious to even the casual observer of policy, their war on free speech and the exchange of ideas is far more insidious. Through ownership of media and methods of the delivery of information, the Left attempts at every opportunity to frame “appropriate” opinions and quash dissent. If out of power, the Left will cry loudly how its rights are being trampled upon, in much the same way a coward who ambushes its victim and is then set upon with force suddenly reacts with righteous indignation, as if he were not the aggressor!
