Yes, Obama’s Economic Policies Really Were That Bad.

Throughout our history, free speech has been cherished in the United States of America. Thankfully, we have the First Amendment which mandates that “Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech.” It not only protects this right, but also the free press and other precious liberties such as the right to exercise religious beliefs, assemble, and “petition the Government for the redress of grievances.”

Years - Assault - Speech - College - Campuses

Unfortunately, in recent years, there has been an assault on free speech. On many college campuses, conservative speakers are not welcome. Often, when a conservative is invited, progressive groups attempt to persuade the administration to cancel the speech.

This paucity of conservative speakers can also be found at college graduation ceremonies. Commencement addresses are the highest profile speech that can be given on any college campus. Unfortunately, students and parents are usually only exposed to a speaker who is an avowed liberal, progressive or socialist.

A study of college commencement addresses was conducted byYoung America’s Foundation in 2018. The results were unsettling, but not surprising. It discovered that liberals exceeded conservatives by an astounding 12-1 margin. These invitees reflected the values of college professors and administrators, who are overwhelmingly liberal.

Sadly, the ongoing censorship of conservatism is not limited to college campuses. It is especially apparent every day in our media environment. The mainstream news media has been dominated by liberals for decades. So, positive news about conservative policies or politicians is regularly censored. The disturbing situation was documented in a recentMedia Research Center study. It showed that during a three-month period in 2018, approximately 92% of the news coverage of President Trump on the three major broadcast networks was negative.
