“Nessel, in partnership with Agustin Arbulu, director of the Michigan Department of Civil rights, say they will create a process to document incidents of hate and bias that don’t rise to the level of criminal or civil infractions… That could translate to speech or expressions of opinion that some may find offensive, but are protected by the First Amendment. Bias is protected by the Constitution until it infringes on the rights and freedoms of others, and hate is often in the eye of the beholder… Groups have been singled out as hateful by the SPLC for opposing gay marriage, abortion and immigration… The SPLC is extremely reckless in its selection of groups to include on the hit list.” – Nolan Finley, “AG Nessel puts civil liberties at risk” – Detroit News, March 9th, 2019.

“Sen. Harris and her party seek to remove more power from the people by disarming them. Students have been brainwashed into absurdly believing that law-abiding gun-owners are responsible for school shootings. Democrats are pushing to lower the voting age to 16 so kids will naively vote to repeal their parent’s Second Amendment right to bear arms.” – Lloyd Marcus, “The Democratic presidential contenders’ demeaning view of Americans” – American Thinker, March 23rd, 2019.

“Can the minister give me some assurance that we will go back to trusting the police officers to get on and do their job in the way that they know best without them fearing some kind of politically correct witch-hunt if they decide to stop and search someone that they think is worth stopping and searching… We must trust police officers to do the job, to keep us safe, because they know better than anybody in this House what needs to be done.” – Tory MP Philip Davies, quoted by Alex Evans in “Police aren’t stopping and searching people due to political correctness, warns MP” – Yorkshire Post, March 22nd, 2019.

“Faisal Ahmed was given the green light by elite teacher training program TeachFirst despite having ‘extreme difficulty with handwriting’, problems with reading and understanding ‘written tests’… Teach First recruits top graduates who are parachuted into schools while they study for a teaching qualification, with the organisation receiving millions in funding… The scandal emerged when Mr Ahmed, who is in his 30s, sued the school for constructive dismissal and disability discrimination after he quit in anger.” – Daily Mail, “Teacher at Catholic London secondary school is suspended after it’s discovered he can’t read or write” – April 7th, 2019.

“Having to feel so afraid to express our political views is outrageous. Democrats and fake news media have so twisted the meaning of MAGA and generated such hatred for Trump that citizens are afraid to publicly support the president of the United States. This is still America. Thugs who physically attack us for expressing our First Amendment right to free speech must be prosecuted… Antifa, Black Lives Matter and other Democrat domestic terrorists routinely beat up Trump supporters. Meanwhile, fake news media promotes their lie that the Tea Party is the violent movement… it requires courage to stand with Trump in his quest to bring America back from Democrats’ destruction.” – Lloyd Marcus, “It is outrageous that supporting Trump is dangerous” – Clash Daily, April 5th, 2019.
