Free Speech...protecting the Right

Postby Crux » 2011 Jan 12 07:34

...or will there be some other WAY the State-ists will use the regulatory power of the Federal Government to squelch political opposition speech?

Here's two short clips: .54 seconds and .16 seconds.

First the news... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBD3yDEPGqA&NR=1 ...the spokesman http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nLdk-Kn ... re=related

...and gives us a good 3:09 show. Vitriolic? Human? Perceptive? Fair? Right? Wrong? Be a Free Choice Adult.

Enjoy and good night.

Know about this Fella? A 1:19 reminder... Eric Holder knows about him... ...Violent rhetoric, and"hate speech" by loud-speaker, if you will. Check it out! Nutty but protected... Now, as for the Voter Intimidation by these two GEMS at a polling place in Philidelphia, that clear-cut Civil Rights Violation of The Voting Rights Act in Philidelphia which was ready for Federal Prosecution, was DROPPED by Obama early on in his term...

...it's ugly, and protected... 3:15 Fascinating the ugly politically correct SLURS black leftists hurl at black LEFTISTS, or CONSERVATIVE. Obama the "Magic Negro" was an article written by a black journalist at the L.A. Times. It is quite a good read...

...and demagogic hypocrisy...Clyburn (D) 1:26 Could we expect any less from THIS champion of the "FAAAIRNESSS" doctrine?

Hosted by, MSNBC (main stream news & bias central) :pompom: and CHRIS MATHEWS!! :thumbup:

...CONSERVATIVE talk radio. Is this just :12 seconds of fear mongering from some the Right? Is the Left ACTUALLY the champion of suppressing political speech?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riADKp4GG7g

...and we must not silence "the other side" Mister Clinton... (:34) ...even if we wanted to Sir. A little hyperbolic partisan rhetoric is red meat for the State-ists on the Left though! :salut:

(for 1:14)...on the "Fairness doctrine" and government censoring free political speech...Schumer D. NY

Chuck Schumer is a paragon of the Left, and RIGHT up the elitist-top-down Progressive stripe... ...which rhythms with tripe.

[color=#800000]
These are my words. Many have said far better, and far more beautiful...

Protecting Free Speech as an Individual Right, and the recognition that UnPopular, or OFFensive speech is FUNdamental to our Republic, and is our "God given" and HARD WON privilege, and responsibility...every day in every generation.
The protection of Political Speech should be an equal-opportunity occupation of all Americans.

It is a foundation of our Free Democratic form of Governance. There are those who would seek to use the power of Government to QUELL the voices of their opposition, be they in print, in the street, over the radio, or on the internet... I believe this is the tactic of totalitarianism, oppression, and tyranny.

People will always react, and cry out against those they differ with, in the name of decency, outrage, fairness, logic, civility, or principle, as is their RIGHT. Sometimes those that disagree, will demean, marginalize, or label. So be it... They might fiercely and vocally debate. They will exercise their RIGHT to disagree and SPEAK their "truth to power", or "take on" their opposition...or verbally "target" their detractors with Martial Metaphors. They will use sarcasm, or facts, or fallacy.

None the less, fiery political speech always was, and still is, an American Tradition. Debate, disagreement, dissent and demonstration are not the purview of any Party, but a right of The People, at the very CORE of what Our Country is about.
Are there BETTER ways to communicate? Always... Might you win someone over, or "kill them with kindness"? Surely...

The 1st amendment was NEVER intended to protect POPULAR speech...or strictly POLITE conversation.

FYI:
The Fairness Doctrine was based on a simple notion. The government licenses broadcasters to serve in "the public interest, convenience and necessity." The Doctrine didn't ban any speech. It simply stated that if broadcasters editorialized themselves, they should give equal time to opposing viewpoints. Given that the airwaves, unlike cable systems and printing presses, belong to the public, it wasn't a bad idea.

What fun to listen to . :gun2: ...silliness.

...or about Bush... 1:20 :blob1: ...from the Green Czar hizzelf!!

AND the "FAAAIRRNESSS" doctrine...and arbiter of what is "racist"? ...of what is offensive speech?

Surely he jests... No. He is a hypocrite, Leftist rabble-rouser and a Reverend of sorts, and has certainly said MANY "things".

"Explain himself publicly"?

Limbaugh does that EVERY day and you betcha, there are PLENTY of MONITORS, public and private, listening to EVERY word...


Sounds good but broadcasters EDITORIALIZE all the time. The FCC should protect the private use of the airwaves. The FCC and the Government should Protect Speech, a Simple Notion.
The FCC through the FD, at THE VERY least, would play Speech Police.
The FD was and WOULD be a TOOL used ideologically to suppress oppositional political speech.
The FD is NOT needed.
There are "standards". The FCC enforces them. Enjoy! 2:07

The agenda, or platform, or desire of the Left as espoused and believed is not mere "imagination" on my part. My opinion is not what I have demonstrated.

RELATIVE unattainably of State-ist or Progressive intent, does not make me somehow wrong, and is not a red herring.

Look. You are mistaken my friend. Blind to what my short list of influential REPRESENTATIVES believe...and seek.
A fairness doctrine outright or in practicality.

I AGREE it is not needed, but apparently the Left's Establishment doesn't. You get angry because I point it out? You RIP me because I am correct? Why do you overlook the Left's desire, and deny it? You say the left would not allow such violations...

Are you so unaware of the constant struggle to oppose the voices of censorship ONLY when you hear them from the RIGHT? Pathetic.

I have made 4 points...

Postby Crux » 2011 Jan 12 13:02

...generally. Essentially...

1. That free offensive controversial even fiery political opposition speech should be protected in it's public forms by The People, Their government and Laws.
2. That this speech, be it Martial Metaphor, loud, disagreeable, or wrong is the purview of ALL people and parties.
3. That there is a gross and selective outrage and condemnation that the Left OFTEN engages in.
4. That the State-ist and largely Leftist Progressive voice seems to have a pension for censoring political opposition speech.

You have failed to acknowledge these salient points here and in LIFE. Sad...

You are being silly if you do NOT respect the Dem voices in my list who SUPPORT the "fairness" doctrine of censorship.

Have you watched the short vids provided? I doubt it. Some are perhaps too troubling. I find some of them troubling too. Are you all bent at the HYPOCRISY that is pointed out, because you REALLY only see "hypocrisy of the right".

Look. Don't be so obtuse is all. Here is a blast from the 90's... http://www.heritage.org/research/report ... g-but-fair As to what legislation or rules, I would include the Feds foray however well intentioned into net neutrality as one. We will see what else comes along.

Efforts recently? "“Fairness Doctrine.” HR 1105 (Roll Call 92). The Senate defeated an amendment that would bar the use of federal funds to re-instate the “fairness doctrine,” which required broadcasters to give equal time to different viewpoints, thus discouraging broadcasters from airing successful conservative talk shows. ACU opposes this attempt at restricting political speech, but the amendment failed March 10, 2009 by a vote of 47-50".

From http://www.heritage.org/research/commen ... ctrine-rip "The battle over the Fairness Doctrine ended last week when the House of Representatives voted 309-115 against allowing the Federal Communications Commission to re-impose the regulation on broadcasters. The vote almost certainly means that the long-dead rule will not be revived anytime soon. That's good news. But the celebrations should be tempered: the real battle over media regulation is still to come, and won't involve the words "Fairness Doctrine.""


And from http://www.tvweek.com/news/2009/02/sena ... nstati.php "The amendment to block the FCC from acting was one of several amendments added to the D.C. bill before it was passed by the Senate on a 61-to-37 vote". AND "The ban on the FCC reinstating the doctrine was proposed by Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C. and the amendment passed 87 to 11". Now Durban and you say this is a bloody shirt, or a red herring, but I have too little faith in either....

Again, do you not see the Dem voices in my list who SUPPORT the "fairness" doctrine of censorship to be a risk?

By the way I was well aware of Clyburn's desire recently...

I don't know about Neck, but I read through all your postings and videos and pretty much agree with Neck.
It is all other people's opinion of what Democrats intend, that is apart from several one-worders captured by O'Reilly's notorious ambush interviewers and edited to skew reality into something that fits O'Reilly's strange view of the world.

I cannot agree that there is any significant support in any quarter for suppressing free speech on radio and television. Nobody appears yet to have filed formal proposed legislation or regulations to that effect. The only things I have heard advocating suppression of free speech, even advocating assassination, are Republican voices calling for the official silencing of the journalist Julian Assange of WikiLeaks who has been neither charged with nor convicted of any crime.

Your reaching back to 18 years to a 1993 proposal that went nowhere borders on hilarity. There is nothing during the Obama administration whatsoever. You guys love to make a mountain out of, well, nothing at all.

Your citation of the Republican led move by the Senate in 2009 to ban actions that nobody wanted to take anyway is truly hilarious. These guys passed a bill in the Senate banning something that nobody wanted to do ... your classic red herring. I'm guessing even the ban went nowhere either, for lack of House support but concede that I haven't checked it.

Speaking of free speech, I hear that now someone wants to rewrite Mark Twain's book to what was that word now. sanatise it so the n word is taken out. Isn't that aginst some moral code or something. I gotta believe someone is going out to lunch on this one.
Only in America could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be thought of as
"extremists
