Roberts is awarded the Treasury Department’s Meritorious Service Award for “his outstanding contributions to the formulation of United States economic policy.
Roberts states that: "Free speech is becoming associated with facism, because what free speech does is that it allows you to say something that challenges the ruling ideology. And they don't want to be challenged. So, to protect the ideology from challenge, they call the people telling the truth for facists. That's the way it works and that's what political correctness boils down to."
"The neo-cons don't care if their position is based on objective truth, anything that challenges it is wrong and evil. And the favorite word for that is facism. So now, all kinds of people, whistle blowers, truth tellers all are told they are facists."
"We have in the US a number of former CIA officials who have turned whistle blowers and tell what is really going on, and they are called names. Instead of saying, "look how brave they are, they have taken all these risks", you're told "no, you cannot listen to him".
Some of them in public meetings have actually been beaten up. They asked the wrong question, and get beaten by police and dragged off.
This happened to Ray McGovern, who was a CIA official who for years gave the morning briefing to the President. He turned whistle blower, he was at a meeting where Hillary was speaking, he asked a wrong question, was beaten up and dragged out. This reminds me of the Third Reich. This is what happened to people in Germany in the 1930's who thought you could still debate things."
