Government has a Free Speech Right?

Over at the New Republic (Yes, I occasionally read TNR. Surprised?) Alan Wolfe
has an article excoriating the Supreme Court for really bad reasoning in a case involving one of our Natural Rights, free speech.

First off, I would put the 10 Commandments up against anything that another religion could come up with in terms of stating what our duties are to God and to one another. For those who are afraid the Lord would not be amused, I think he had plenty of time to work them out, and he might well say "bring on your seven aphorisms." Just sayin'.... But, to the point, neither corporations, nor governments can have rights. Individuals people have rights.

Yet more signs that things are unravelling.
