We know the Marxist/Progressives do not so want. We have seen direct assaults on freedom of political speech by the Internal Revenue Service. These direct assaults are being defended by Obama and the rest of the Marxist/Progressives. Now we have a political figure, Governor Rick Perry, indicted for taking political action. We have not heard one word about this egregious action from Obama or Holder.
Other people have spoken out and at the same time point to the dangers these types of actions impose on our very freedom. Yes, Marx said it would take despotic action to transform society. This is what Alan Dershowitz said.
The indictment of Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry over abuse of powers is reminiscent of the way that political dissent was handled in the Soviet Union, legal scholar and Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV's "America's Forum."
Dershowitz, who make clear he would never vote for Rick Perry, said the governor's indictment was driven by politics and is representative of "what happens in totalitarian societies." He said disagreement with Perry's actions is "not the basis of what a criminal charge should be," adding that Americans have the ability to "vote against him" if they don't like his actions.
"The two statutes under which he was indicted are reminiscent of the old Soviet Union, you know, abuse of authority," Dershowitz said Monday. "The idea of indicting him because he threatened to veto spending unless a district attorney who was caught drinking and driving resigned, that's not anything for a criminal indictment. That's a political issue."
All Freedom Loving Americans must rise up and make their voices heard against these abuses on our freedom.
