Recently we saw the IRS under the Marxist/Progressive regime of Obama try to silence in any and every way they could those groups who supported the United States Constitution and freedom for all. These Marxists groups will prevent conservative speakers from speaking on college campuses and shout them down when the conservative speaker is allowed to speak. The Marxist/Progressives have tried to use the government to control the press and the radio and television airways with what they would refer to as fair policies.
Now we see the Marxists trying to silence a liberal leaning constitutional attorney from speaking about the lawlessness of Obama and his attempt to fundamentally transform the United States from a nation that has rule of law to a nation of arbitrary law; the same concept necessary for any dictator, like Lenin, Mao, Castro, Hitler, and Mussolini. The left is trying to silence Johnathan Turley, because he is and has openly denounced the lawlessness of Obama.
Many Marxists are displeased with liberal legal scholar Jonathan Turley’s decision to represent House Republicans in their lawsuit against Obama’s unilateral changes to Obamacare, and at least one of them wants to retaliate by silencing him.
When he signed a contract to represent the House in the case (United States House of Representatives v. Burwell), Turley agreed not to discuss the litigation with the media.
But that restriction does not go far enough for Rep. Robert Brady of Pennsylvania, ranking Marxist/Progressive on the House Administration Committee, who wants the George Washington University law professor barred from speaking out on issues of presidential executive authority for months or years to come.
“Would it not be better to prohibit Mr. Turley from making any media appearances in which he comments on the extent of the executive authority of the President in any context whatsoever during the pendency of this case?” Brady wrote in a letter sent Monday to Rep. Candice Miller, chairman of the House Administration Committee.
Brady then asked Miller if it might not be better “if Mr. Turley was prohibited from making statements, granting interviews or otherwise conferring with any member of the media or media organization for a period of years following the conclusion of this case.”
The hypocrisy of the left knows no limits.
