Democrats Aided by Soros Want To Silence Opposition!

Liberal totalitarianism
InsightMag.Com......... for complete article

Democrats are attempting to muzzle conservative talk radio: they are assaulting free speech. Like the communists in the former Soviet Union, America’s liberals seek to crush dissent by consolidating control over the media—especially talk radio, which has emerged as the dominant medium for conservative opinion.

Allies close to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are promoting legislation, which if passed, will take off the air prominent conservative radio hosts such as Michael Savage, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly—along with thousands of smaller conservative broadcasters.

The bill, entitled the "Media Ownership Reform Act," is sponsored by Rep. Maurice Hinchey, a leftist Democrat from New York. The legislation aims to revive the so-called “Fairness Doctrine” of the 1940’s: “all views” are to be given equal time on radio. In particular, the Federal Communications Commission would have the power to oversee and change radio and television content. The goal is to tilt the ideological balance of power away from the right on the nation’s air waves.

The real force behind the effort to censor conservative talk radio is the progressive–philanthropist, George Soros. The radical leftist billionaire has made no secret of his hatred for conservatives.

He says President Bush has transformed America into a militaristic, “fascist” empire. Moreover, Soros champions many of liberalism’s chic causes: abortion on demand, legalization of drugs, homosexual marriage, euthanasia, unlimited Third World immigration, open borders, and one-world government anchored in the United Nations. He advocates all the issues that are anathema to popular radio talk-show hosts like Savage, Limbaugh and Hannity. Hence, he wants these commentators to be exiled to the political wilderness.

At a recent National Conference for Media Reform, sponsored by Free Press, a Massachusetts-based group heavily subsidized by Soros, Hinchey laid bare his plan to silence conservative voices on television and radio. The anti-war McGovernite attacked Savage, Limbaugh and other conservative radio hosts, saying they were “responsible” for leading the U.S. into the Iraq war, as well as for preparing the ground for future military invasions of Iran and Syria. According to Hinchey, these men pose a “threat” to American national security. Hence, under his bill, they would be fired.

"All of that stuff will end," Hinchey said.

In the Senate, the legislation is being supported by Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. A self-styled “social democrat,” Sanders is forming a media caucus with the explicit goal of ending conservative hegemony on talk radio.

Wild Thing's comment.........

The bill, known as the “Media Ownership Reform Act” first introduced in July of 2005 by Congressman Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) is also being co-sponsored by fellow National Socialists:

If passed I would think this legislation will return to bite the ‘Rats and their America-hating affiliates right on the tail - because it means that all of the left-wing programs on PBS, NPR, etc., will be required BY LAW to provide conservative balance. The only problem is the alphabet networks, the major newspapers, the weekly rag-mags, NPR, PBS, etc. will never admit they’re totally left wing.

Any liberal stupid enough to demand equal time with El Rushbo will not only have their ass handed to them, they might end up becoming an apostate to the liberal cause. Of course the preferred result is to see this communist-inspired legislation from a communistic member of Congress strangled in it’s crib.

Co-sponsors of this bill (Traitors to the 1st Amendment all):

Peter A. DeFazio (D-OR)
Bob Filner (D-CA)
Alcee L. Hastings (D-FL)
Marcy Kaptur (D-OH)
Barbara Lee (D-CA)
Jim McDermott (D-WA)
James P. Moran (D-VA)
Major R. Owens (D-NY)
Bernard Sanders (I-VT)
Janice Schakowsky (D-IL)
Louise McIntosh Slaughter (D-NY)
Hilda A. Solis (D-CA)
Fortney (Pete) Stark (D-CA)
Maxine Waters (D-CA)
Diane E. Watson (D-CA)
Lynn C. Woolsey (D-CA)

Do they really NOT know the difference between being a democrat and a socialist?
This is STILL a free country, so Soros will just have to put up with our voice, too.

Hi Lynn! I'm encouraged to read you are against the fairness doctrine. I work with the national association of broadcasters and history has shown that this type of government intervention actually has the unintended consequence of suppressing alternative views.

The Washington Times wrote a great article on the subject:

There are liberals who preach the need for "diversity of views" in calling for the return of the Fairness Doctrine because they bridle at the high ratings of Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and other conservative broadcasters who currently have more public favor than the comparatively fewer liberal commentators. But these liberals ignore why we have the First Amendment. As Oliver Wendell Holmes emphasized: "If there is any principle of the Constitution that more imperatively calls for attachment than any other it is the principle of free thought -- not the thought that we hate."

Socialist and Democrat are synonymous, they enjoy overwhelming media bias, Soros is only ensuring totalitarian control of the media, to include the Internet, Cable and Satellite. Only the elite ruling Marxists will have a modicum of free speech or they will be reformed just like Stalin reformed his opposition. Look at what trumped up charges have done for Scooter Libby, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage or Don Imus, You don't find them on FM, only AM or Satellite radio and they are very sparse or...gone.

This shows that in the free market place of ideas, the Liberals have trouble competing. Their Air America, even with monetary backing, could not draw an audience. So they now want to do the undisguised socialist thing, regulate by government.

The abuse of the First Amendment leads to strengthening the Second Amendment.

Proof positive, when they can't compete in the arena of ideas, the Socialists try to shut-up the people who disagree with them.

This was shown in this past election, the Dumbasses ... er. democrats who won their election all ran as conservatives.

They know they can't win if they really admitted who they are, so they lie to the voters, and get elected as conservatives, which they are not.

Now they are faced with a real dilemma, they have to resubmit a budget for funding the troops and the war. They will have to pay for it without any strings attached. Their base is going to freak out.

The real Harm, over this game playing by the demos is, to the country and the troops lives are at stake because the demos want to destroy a President and they don't care what the cost is or who gets hurt in the process.

Free speech is one thing, but undermining your country and your countries military is quite another issue. They constantly talk all the evidence they have on the President and the grounds they have for his impeachment.

Well how about the evidence we have on the democrats trying to subvert this country, now that is grounds for impeachment. Starting with Harry 'the Cadaver' Reed, P'lousy and cetera.

That picture of reminds me of "Dr. Strangelove" as portrayed by Peter Sellers.

Lynn I agree we are NOT going to be quiet for them, no way.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 3, 2007 11:37 PM

Jack exactly your so right.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 3, 2007 11:38 PM

Tom your right, they just cannot compete at all.
Maybe they can pay people to listen like they pay people to protest.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 3, 2007 11:40 PM

Mark great comment and so true.
I have zero tolerance for them and want them to know it. It is one thing to tick me off with their behavior, it is another thing when their behavior effects our troops and it certainly does and that I will never ever forgive them for.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 3, 2007 11:43 PM

Nick oh my gosh it does, your right.
