Trump administration wants to put a price on freedom of speech.

December 10, 2018

The Trump administration is none too happy about the right to speak and assemble peaceably — and, particularly, to protest — as we saw when the president found fault with the hundreds of thousands of women —and men — who marched on the National Mall following his election, not to mention the scientists who demonstrated in defense of science some months later.

Protests are likely to continue and intensify in the days ahead what with the release of the National Climate Assessment report and the intransigent resistance to acknowledging human factors in climate change by the Trump administration. That’s without considering the likely ending, soon, of the Robert Mueller investigation into Russia meddling with our election and what may occur in the wake of its findings.
