Renewed calls for restoration of the 'fairness doctrine' & the LibTard chorus chanting the mantra of 'civility' followed the recent Arizona Massacre as flowers follow a spring rain. Blood is the natural fertilizer of idiotic demands for tyranny.The heinous act was not solicited, prompted or suggested by 'extremists' shouting 'hate filled' rants on talk radio. It was not related to the recent political campaign season. It was the independent act of a lone gunman acting out his own fantasy. Local law enforcement had several opportunities to prevent the slaughter. Now they cover their incompetence & misfeasance by falsely assigning blame to others who had nothing to do with the affair. Remember Shrub's 'new tone in Washington' ? It was a single flute drowned out by dozens of braying jackasses. 'Chimpy McBush', 'Bush lied and thousands died' etc. There were a book and a movie about assassinating Shrub, both celebrated by the left. Then there was Dan Rather's infamous attack with spurious documents. Does anyone remember a famous actor ranting about wanting to stone Congressman Henry Hyde to death? Where was the outpouring of outrage over that blood thirsty rant? There was note, because this issue is all one sided. Hannity, Levin & Limbaugh spent several days replaying sound bytes of outrageous statements by president Obama and his cronies. Those sound bytes fall on deaf ears.
The LibTards are determined to squelch opposition voices. They don't want tone control or volume control, they want content control. Their demand is 180° out of phase with the First Amendment. Political speech must be protected speech because representative government requires the adversary process of debate. If they can't get their way in the legislature or the courts, they will turn to regulation by fiat. Thus we have the FCC's recent 'net neutrality' ruling. Ostensibly about preventing internet service providers from throttling competitor's content, it is really about content control and raising revenue. Incrementally, little by little, they will expand the rules to regulate content. At the same time they will impose fees to 'cover the cost' of enforcing the rules.
