“Tales From The Memory Hole” Episode 3, US Civil Rights Commission Removes Bush-Unfriendly Reports From Website.

 

The Republican controlled US Commission on Civil Rights has completely watered downed or eliminated much of the information we read or download from their website.
The current commissioners, who have very little experience or past dealings in the civil rights arena but were appointed by the current presidential administration, have shown that they intend to rubber stamp out anything that does not support the party’s agenda and ideology of valid civil rights information to disseminate to the public.

The following items were removed from their website, but the Memory Hole, a freedom of information clearing house, has requested, received and reposted the following items of interest:
