In campaign stops around the country, security personnel and even local police have been given instructions to keep certain people out of campaign gatherings. Press, opposition organizations and people on black lists are forcefully blocked or physically removed from rallies and meetings.
This is a dangerous practice in a nation that cherishes freedom. In a country where the right to say whatever you want and associate with people you wish, efforts by security and police to bar certain people should be discouraged and even stopped.
Just because a candidate or officeholder doesn’t like his adversaries, that does not mean those politicians should be able to make up the rules as they go.
Permitting this practice is a step closer to a police state.
America should not be a place where people who hold a rally for freedom are allowed to stomp on the freedoms of others.
