The Criminalization of Political Activism on the Right

California’s raid on the pro-life activists who conducted a sting against Planned Parenthood for selling baby parts and the FEC attempt to crack down on an anti-Obama documentary both reflect the growing criminalization of political activism on the right.

Much like the imprisonment of Dinesh D’Souza after making a successful anti-Obama documentary or the jailing of the man behind the Innocence of Muslims movie, the common denominator is that government officials seek out a violation of some sort, often one that is not ordinarily enforced, let alone with this much resources and prosecutorial vigor, and then throw the book at the targets.
