The April 2017 featured article is based on a speech that Kimberley Strassel gave at Hillsdale College in April. You can read The Left’s War on Free Speech online at imprimis.hillsdale.edu/lefts-war-free-speech/
In light of the displays of anarchy on city streets, and also on College and University campuses — and in light of the training and conditioning of students in public schools — and the conditioning being done by most of the main-stream media, with the goal: to hate the United States of America and shut up anyone who disagrees — this article is timely.
Here are two samples from the article:

“my main point today is that we’ve experienced over the past eight years a profound shift in our political culture, a shift that has resulted in a significant portion of our body politic holding a five-year-old’s view of free speech. What makes this shift notable is that unlike most changes in politics, you can trace it back to one day: January 21, 2010, the day the Supreme Court issued its Citizens United ruling and restored free speech rights to millions of Americans.”
