Tearing up the Contract

While I'm quoting John over at AMERICAblog... He also has the exactly correct analysis of the recent Republican takeover of PBS. This attack on independent press and free speech aligns perfectly with the federally-approved religious bigotry I noted yesterday. The Repos hate the First Amendment more than any other authority, because it encompasses so many different realms of life in which they want to dictate to us:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
