  1. “It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies. “[T]he purpose of free speech is warped to protect global corporations and block rules that would promote democratic governance.”

    So, in other words, freedom of speech is for leftists only.

  2. Notice too how many leftists are enamored of repressive regimes like Cuba, North Korea, China and Venezuela. Maybe it’s because they secretly want to run things the same way here.

  3. I can see it now – ships just outside the 12-mile limit with high-power radio transmitters beaming Rush, et al, into what’s left of the U.S. Citizens Subjects will hide illegal AM and shortwave receivers from the British-style radio police (hired from the same pool of people the government has fanning out to police thrift shops and garage sales). To purchase batteries, you’ll have to show ID and sign a logbook.

    Some of us will listen to illicit, encrypted internet streams with passwords and changing IP address. We’ll have speakeasies where people will gather to listen to and discuss seditious radio broadcasts. What fun it will be.

    Those not interested in politics will delight in the wide availability of pr0n on broadcast television (First Amendment, you know) and shows like “Ow! My Balls!” (see Idiocracy).

    Mark Levin really will be broadcasting from an underground bunker.

  4. Then we have Maxine ¨the mouth¨Waters, expressing her admiration for Fidel Castro. What we are seeing, within our government, are commies coming out of the red closet. Last week, Chavez said it is easy to manipulate Barak Obama. Remember Trinity UCCC and Rev. Wright are not exactly patriotic. It was a couple of years ago that Senator Dodd urged President Uribe of Colombia to make peace with FARC and let them rule the territory they occupy. I can´t forget that Xavier Becerra told the L.A. Times in 1993 that he saw his role as an international observer of the elections in El Salvador not to protect democracy but the interests of the FMLN (their first as a political party). John Birch Society, where are you?
