'Hillary's America' — Less Free Speech

Lewis Morris
She's still fighting the Citizens United case as a new movie exposes her.

. . . “ 'Hillary’s America,” which D'Souza co-wrote and co-directed along with Bruce Schooley, shares D'Souza’s research on the true origins of the Democrat Party and the rise of Hillary Clinton. Reviews from much of the mainstream press have been predictably scathing. Can’t have anyone taking the Left’s favorite politician to task, right? Of course, if Hillary had her way, this film probably wouldn’t even exist.
" 'You might recall that the Obama administration wanted to put a stake right through the heart of free political speech in 2009 with the Citizens United case. Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to convince the Supreme Court that the government had the power to suppress speech, ban books, or censor media that mentioned the name of a candidate for office during an election cycle. Can’t have an informed electorate, now can we?
"Ironically enough, the Citizens United case originated over a movie about Hillary Clinton that came out during her 2008 presidential campaign. Because the film was not a flattering portrait, the Left went after it claiming that it was an electioneering tool. The film survived, and the Supreme Court, in a narrow 5-4 ruling, came down on the side of free political speech. But the Left has been going after Citizens United ever since." . . .
