Americans who value free speech need to realize that the progressive left is doing everything it can to limit free expression. This move by Elizabeth Warren is just the latest example.

Elizabeth Warren Wants The SEC To Help Her Ban Free Speech
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) wants the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to prohibit organizations from “saying whatever they want about Washington policy debates,” according to a letter she sent to the agency on Thursday.
Warren sent a letter to SEC Chairwoman Mary Jo White calling for an investigation into alleged discrepancies between statements insurance executives made to their investors and complaints these same individuals made about the impact new government regulations would have on their businesses, The Wall Street Journal reports.
The new regulations stem from a Department of Labor rule change that will make it tougher for investment firms that handle retirement funds to operate.
In the letter, Warren alleges that she’s concerned discrepancies in their statements will harm investors. She even called out the individuals and their companies by name and asked for a “prompt and thorough” investigation into their statements, but stopped short of declaring that they violated federal laws.
“Corporate interests have become accustomed saying whatever they want about Washington policy debates, with little accountability when their predictions prove to be inaccurate,” she said in the letter.
Maybe she’s just tired of people pointing out her many lies.
The left’s contempt for free speech has reached a fevered pitch.
That needs to stop.
