The following article, ICYMI: Germany’s Angela Merkel: We Must Take Away Free Speech or We Can’t Be Free (Watch), was first published on Flag And Cross.
Angela Merkel is largely (if not entirely) to blame for Germany’s mass migration problem. Like many (if not most) far-left European leaders, Merkel believes that ultra-liberal values are what helps a country succeed.
Obviously, she’s wrong. She probably knows she’s wrong. Even liberals know they are wrong. But that’s not what matters. What matters is that Merkel and her ilk retain power.
Check out the German leader’s take on “free speech”…
Watch till the end. Angela Merkel says: we have to take away your freedom of speech, or else society won’t be free.

California Democrat Congressman Ted Lieu loves to hear himself talk. He needs the attention.
Lieu made headlines not long ago for walking out of a Congressional moment of silence for victims of a mass shooting.
So, that’s the type of man he is.
Lieu took the time to appear on CNN and said he’d “love to be able to regulate the content of speech.”
Fox News is target number one.
I agree there are serious issues, but the speech issues are protected by the First Amendment. Would I like to regulate Fox News? Yes, but I can't because the First Amendment stops me. And that's ultimately a good thing in the long run.

From Free Beacon:
Rep. Ted Lieu (D., Calif.) said he would “love to be able to regulate the content of speech” during an interview Wednesday, noting he was prevented from doing that by the First Amendment.
Lieu got attention a day earlier when Google CEO Sundar Pichai testified at a House Judiciary Committee hearing, assailing conservative claims of the tech giant’s bias against them by reading positive and negative stories about Republican Reps. Steve Scalise (La.) and Steve King (Iowa), the latter of whom has repeatedly courted controversy with racially charged remarks.
