Silence is Not an Option

Quite so, silence is not an option, especially when our own governments are suppressing the facts of the Islamic invasion and prosecuting those who try to alert the populace.

ESWBoston2013-1“Death Can Be Silent – The Present State of Free Speech in the U.S., Europe and Beyond”

Ahavath Torah Congregation, Boston, June 17, 2013

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am here tonight to discuss the ominous and growing threat to free speech in the Europe, the United States, and the rest of the Western world.

I’ve never been to a synagogue before — although I have visited many mosques! I’m humbled to stand here before you. Thank you, Rabbi, for inviting me and giving the me the opportunity to exercise my freedom of speech.

He and I have a connection: his paternal grandmother was an Austrian, and if his English weren’t so good, we would be able to get by in Yiddish and German.

I’ve just recently learned that the audience for my talk may be larger than I had previously thought. In addition to the listeners gathered here in Stoughton, my words may be recorded by NSA and digitally stored in a huge database — all part of the struggle against “terror” and “violent extremism”. Since this congregation is a non-profit organization, the IRS may also be listening in, just to make sure that what I say here is compatible with your tax-exempt status.

If my words ever happen to be passed on through the social media, the person who posts them may be subject to criminal penalties. Yes, that’s why U.S. Attorney Bill Killian went to Manchester, Tennessee a couple of weeks ago: to discuss using federal civil rights laws to punish those who make critical remarks about Islam.

Such is the current sorry condition of free speech the United States of America.

If it’s that bad here, what must conditions be like elsewhere? This nation used to be a beacon of liberty, the shining city on a hill that inspired the entire world — what has happened to it?

I can tell you from my own experience that Europe has slid even farther down the slippery slope to tyranny.

We, too, live under constant surveillance by our own governments.
