Free Speech? Not If You Disagree With Obama: three recent incidents of punishment for public disagreement

The Obama administration has minimized the threat of Islamic terrorism while elevating the threat potential from “right-wing extremism.”
As WND reported in April 2009, a DHS intelligence and analysis assessment classified “right-wing extremists” as a terrorist threat, identifying as especially dangerous military veterans who have fought in foreign wars and are “disgruntled” about the country’s direction...
Last month, WND reported Marine veteran Brandon Raub, 27, was arrested by a swarm of FBI and Secret Service agents and forcibly detained in a psychiatric ward for comments he had posted on Facebook that expressed dissatisfaction with the U.S. government.
A member of the U.S. Army Band who said he was reprimanded for having anti-Obama bumper stickers on his personal car, serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at a party and reading books written by conservative authors like Sean Hannity is now facing Article 15 charges – which cropped up shortly after he went public with his complaints.
WND has received an unclassified NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) that warns airmen not to look at news stories related to the data-mining scandal
