The GOP-appointed GPO better start answering PDQ.
No doubt discovered by reporters looking for a fresh immigration and citizenship angle, what might have been an oversight is being spun into a whole lot more.
The Government Printing Office produced a set of flash cards for aspiring citizens. No doubt a lot of native-born Americans might have some troubles with the questions. But there is a glaring omission on one of the cards:
Something is missing — like the Freedom of the Press.
“Yep, thatâ€™s your GOP, eliminating freedomâ€“one civil right at a time!!!!”
“The right is inalienable, (In the US at least) and to delete the reference foreshadows the mindset of this administration and all its efforts.”
This has yet to hit Google News and such, so it will be interesting to find out how quickly GPO can react, explain, or spin if necessary. If they don’t answer, the conspiracy meme will further entrench.
Oh… and I have e-mailed the press office to see what they might have to say about this matter. The clock is ticking.
