Fighting Back Against the Left’s Suppression: AFA’s November Conference
On November 5th the American Freedom Alliance hosted a conference, “Crushing Free Speech: How the Left Silences Dissent and What We Can Do About It.” The conference was hosted as part of our response to being included on the SPLC “Hate List” and the room was packed with people concerned about the various ways in which our free speech – and by extension, our freedoms – are being curtailed.
The key is this: If the media did its job, if our schools did theirs, if google, facebook and twitter were objective, if universitites had as open minds as they claim to have, if the Left generally were as “tolerant” as they crow about being, then this conference wouldn’t have been necessary. But each of these speakers spoke of areas where our institutions, ones we rely on, are failing us. Not only are our voices silenced, but the scope of suppression is increasing and the tactics are ranging from insidious to outright violent.
For all those reasons, we held this conference. And for the same reasons, we rely on YOU to help share these videos and ensure that the truth about the dangers from the Left’s tactics are known. Knowledge is power – share the knowledge, share the power.
The following is the programme of the day. Each speaker’s videos can be found at the links. Please watch, share, spread the word.
