Is England's crackdown on free speech a forewarning for America?

Arrests for thought violations in England could be foreboding for the US. An article by Jonathan Turley tells of a truly Orwellian government.

If our current government thought they could get away with it then yea. I think it’s possible they would try.

They are trying.

They're already stifling speech so it can't be heard or even expressed in many environments.

There are already calls for criminalizing speech that doesn't conform to the globalist narrative.

Actual criminalization is just one more small step that I expect to see very soon.

Of course. Authoritarians always crack down on free speech:

FBI Faces Subpoenas After Twitter Files Exposing Social Media Ties: House Republican
“80 @FBI agents were colluding with Twitter to police content and moderate Americans’ speech? Sounds like Communist China to me,” Rep. Greg Steube (R-Fla.) wrote on Twitter on Dec. 16, in response to Taibbi’s revelation. “Investigations are coming!”
