Liberals have fought to criminalize conservative political beliefs since Barack Obama took office.

The Obama regime kicked this off with the Department of Homeland Security listing gun owners, veterans, pro-lifers, and Ron Paul supporters as potential domestic terrorists.

Then Obama’s IRS targeted Tea Party groups in order to intimidate them to back out of the political arena.

And we just learned that the Harris County district attorney in Texas ordered a raid on the home of a pro-life activist who uncovered Planned Parenthood chopping up babies and selling them for spare parts.

The latest example of the left criminalizing political opposition comes from New Jersey.

A man in West Long Branch has been threatened with fines and jail time for flying a Donald Trump flag in his yard.

New Jersey 101.5 reports:

“Joe Hornick was ticketed by a police officer after officials received a complaint about a flag in his yard flying in support of the Republican presidential candidate.

A borough ordinance prohibits any signs being posted more than 30 days before an election.

Hornick, in a post on the West Long Branch Residents page on Facebook, contends that his flag is no different than a for-sale sign or a flag in support of an organization.

 Borough Clerk Lori Cole told New Jersey 101.5 that “our borough attorney determined that a flag is considered a political sign.”

But Jeanne LoCicero, deputy legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey, said the ordinance on its face sounds like it is unconstitutional.

 “Political signs cannot be time limited,” said LoCicero, whose group had successfully won similar cases against Wyckoff, Hawthorne and Franklin Lakes over ordinances that limited the amount of time a sign remains on private property.

 “Political signs are a form of political speech and residents are allowed to engage in that all year long.”

 Hornick faces a fine between $100 and $2,000, 90 days in prison, or both.

All for exercising his First Amendment right to freedom of speech.

Liberals have turned their attention to attacking and silencing Donald Trump supporters as his campaign inches closer to securing the Republican nomination.

Black Lives Matter activists incited a racially charged riot in Illinois, forcing Trump to cancel his rally.

And a Students for Trump meeting at Portland State was disrupted when violent and profane social justice warriors stormed the event.

You can watch the video below – but be warned – the unhinged liberals hurl profanity at a rapid fire pace.

But the left wouldn’t be attacking Trump if his political platform wasn’t so successful.

Trump’s “telling it like it is” pitch endangers the left’s politically correct stranglehold on our culture, and as their desperation intensifies, you can be sure the threats toward conservatives and Trump supporters will escalate.
