Little 'Tweak,' Big Chill: How Feds Isolate Free Speech

Little 'Tweak,' Big Chill: How Feds Isolate Free Speech | Sunshine State News:

What upsets anti-war protesters should concern conservative activists like tea party groups, as well. If government can haul off Occupy Wall Street rabble, it can just as easily crack down on tea party rallies, too.
Anna Trujillo, a Republican running against Deutch, decried what she calls the creation of "no free-speech zones." 
"It's ridiculous to be taking away our rights to free speech in the public square. The Secret Service shouldn't have the power to repress speech as long as it is a peaceful demonstration," said Trujillo, who added that she is "not a libertarian."
The only dissenting votes against the Rooney-Deutch "tweak" of Section 1752 came from three tea party-backed Republicans -- Reps. Ron Paul of Texas, Paul Broun of Georgia and Justin Amash of Michigan.
