Trump's administration seems to think that there is only one amendment to the Constitution, the second. And while taking that amendment in a blindly literal way, they want to ignore the other amendments, especially the first. Freedom of religion? -- that's just for conservative Christians. Muslims need not apply. Freedom of the press? Sure! -- as long as you agree to ignore the lies of this President. Otherwise you get booted from White House briefings.
As a child I was always taught that shutting down a free press was the way of despotic countries -- the former Soviet Union, China and Cuba. They didn't allow criticism of the regime, while in America, we do. That's why Radio Free Europe got started. Founded in the year I was born, 1949, they were to reach countries "where the free flow of information is either banned by government authorities or not fully developed". Should Trump keep going in this direction, we will soon need a "Radio Free America."
What do YOU think about this trend?
