An Assault on Free Speech


“All this means that the people of any country have the right, and should have the power by constitutional action, by free unfettered elections, with secret ballot, to choose or change the character or form of government under which they dwell; that freedom of speech and thought should reign; that courts of justice, independent of the executive, unbiased by any party, should administer laws which have received the broad assent of large majorities or are consecrated by time and custom. Here are the title deeds of freedom which should lie in every cottage home. Here is the message of the British and American peoples to mankind. Let us preach what we practise - let us practise what we preach.”
- Sir Winston Churchill, March 5, 1946

Britain - birthplace of Magna Carta, the Bill of Rights, the Habeas Corpus, trial by jury, the English common law, and a blogger named Lionheart.

Lionheart is to be arrested by British authorities for making his case, speaking his mind, exercising his God-given right of free speech. But they haven’t silenced him yet. Here’s your chance to hear him for yourself! Our good friends at Political Vindication Radio - where freedom of speech and thought do reign - will interview Lionheart LIVE Thursday, January 17 at 6 pm Pacific/Friday, January 18 at 2am in the UK. Call in at 646-652-4598 and exercise your right of free speech to support Lionheart’s exercising his.

Remember – even you Lefties – if they get him now, it'll be the bloody rest of us tomorrow!

Cheers,

Charlie

Hello again Churchill's Parrot - You are absolutely correct to be alarmed by these events. And as you pointed out, it's the foolish libs who will suffer too.

Sometimes trying to keep civilization from self-destructing is a task perhaps even too great for Hercules. But us poor pamphleteers must keep trying. And of course we must keep supporting each other's efforts. And this my dear Churchill's Parrot is something, I have noticed, you do quite often and quite well. And I thank you for it.

Your friend,
Roger G.

My Dear Mr. Gardner,

Your reference to us as "pamphleteers" thrills me to no end! For it was they - perhaps as much as the heroic soldiers - who rested American liberty from the clutches of tyranny (ableit British). I would be very proud to be counted among that lot in the eyes of history, as should you.

Your gracious and insightful commentary is always welcome here my friend.

Cheers,

Charlie
