As part of my continuing effort to reach new audiences, I have a column at The Washington Times, A campaign to silence conservative speech:

For years, there has been a multipronged attempt to drive conservative speech from the public square.

These prongs include misuse of government powers to target conservatives, attempts to keep conservative voices from being heard on mass-media outlets, and redefinition of language in order to taint conservative speech as unacceptable.

That first prong, though, the misuse of government power, has become more prevalent during the Obama era with the targeting of conservatives and particularly Tea Party groups by the Internal Revenue Service serving as the most prominent example.

Head over to The Washington Times and read the whole thing.

And share it far and wide.
