Americans Becoming Alarmed over Assault on Free Speech

From Bob Unruh at WorldNetDaily:

A majority of Americans are alarmed over attempts by the White House

to stifle dissent or suppress free speech, according to a new poll that asked about a series of issues ranging from President Obama's attempt to cut Fox News out of an interview opportunity to his advocacy for "hate crimes" legislation that could hinder Christian pastors' sermons.

"Independents, Hispanics and small business owners are among the key voting blocs that disagree with the president's moves to curtail free speech," the summary of the poll results said.
