Anyone who still believes that the O-totalitarians are not trying to use the Federal Communication Commission to censor free political speech on the Internet is dangerously gullible. Only Republican control of the House of Representatives prevents it. Localism is Big Nanny’s latest euphemism for censorship. The FCC proposed among other items that broadcast stations create community advisory boards, require staff to be on site whenever a station was on the air and provide reports. They are promoting this scheme under the guise of protecting children from pornographic predators. FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell said this about censoring Internet content.
The government would be compiling data as to what kind of content you were airing and whether the government thought that was appropriate content," McDowell said. This claim’s despicable arrogance directly reflects White House sentiments. They plan to use their prejudices to determine appropriate Internet content.
It could be political speech…we don't know where the government is headed. Sentient beings know localism’s direction is totalitarian takeover. Speech articulates thoughts and feelings; censoring speech also censors thought. Speechcrime is Thoughtcrime.
They plan to employ standard-issue Corruptocrat incrementalism; first, they contrive a shred of justification for censoring a part of Internet content. Once done, they will goose-step their way to totalitarian control of the Web to censor dissent before the next election. First, the FCC will require pre-approval—for online media and individual contributors—prior to publication on the Internet.
This will necessitate a national online ID. Next, the commission will appoint community advisory boards in all major metropolitan areas to regulate information dissemination. Content advisers will bowdlerize all information unflattering to the current regime. The FCC will close ISPs that fail to comply.
Corrupt regimes throughout history and across the globe have used regulation and taxation to control thought by controlling speech. The O-totalitarians are continuing the legacies of Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot. In late June, the FCC released research recommendations for overhauling and updating the agency’s regulatory approach to print, broadcast, cable and the Internet. This is largely a scheme to redistribute resources to their welfare constituents, although they lack the regulatory authority to do this.
traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
A more apt description of progressive O-bumites has never been uttered. They have wrecked the economy; they have turned education into brain washing; they control the mainstream media; the judiciary unilaterally repeals inconvenient legislation. Everyone who cares about our children’s and grandchildren’s futures should heed this clarion call.
May your gods be with you.
