We’re going to spend the first hour of the program examining the war on freedom of speech and religion, where old rights are being displaced by news ones.

First, there has been a long-standing effort to muzzle individuals or groups who express serious concerns about radical Islam using lawsuits to do so. Brooke Goldstein is with the Lawfare Project (www.thelawfareproject.org) and co-author of “Lawfare, the War Against Free Speech.”
