No doubt our 'enlightened, tolerant and progressive' friends will cheer as this end-run around the first amendment s implemented. We'll all still be equal, just some will be more equal than others.

The End of Free Speech
By Brad O'Leary

As popular opposition to the reinstitution of the so-called "Fairness Doctrine" mounts, Barack Obama and the Democrat-dominated Congress will end-run critics with legislation that will curb dissent on talk radio through the imposition of "localism" rules and community watchdog boards across America, charges a new book by a former NBC Westwood One talk-show host.

In Shut Up, America! The End of Free Speech, author Brad O'Leary says the plan amounts to the development of party-approved "commissar committees" to censor the kind of lively and free-wheeling debate America has known since the scrapping of the so-called "Fairness Doctrine" by President Reagan's Federal Communications Commission in 1987.

(O'Leary points out there were only 75 radio talk shows in America during the last year of the "Fairness Doctrine" rules. Today, there are more than 3,000.)

By demanding radio stations answer to local community watchdog boards to ensure programming is "balanced," "fair," "diverse," "tolerant" and "serving the public interest locally," O'Leary says the rules and legislation being planned will once again make talk radio accountable to politicians, political activists and bureaucrats at the FCC.

"Under the rubric of 'broadcast localism,' it is clear the commission is proposing no less than a sweeping takeover by Washington bureaucrats of broadcast media," wrote Rep. John Boehner, House minority leader, in a letter to FCC Chairman Kevin Martin as far back as last June. "The proposals and recommendations for commission action contained in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking amount to the stealth enactment of the Fairness Doctrine, a policy designated to squelch the free speech and free expression of specifically targeted audiences."

Those regulations would "reinstitute advisory boards to regulate broadcast content and revive a host of other rules the commission dropped more than 20 years ago," explained Boehner.

In this groundbreaking new book, Brad O'Leary, author of the critically acclaimed The Audacity of Deceit: Barack Obama's War on American Values, shines the light on a dark mission of the left, shutting down conservative voices on the radio -- and, in the process, eviscerating the First Amendment.

Are you upset that there won't be an outlet for your
rambling racist programmes or remarks?

This is America, comrade. We enjoy freedom of speech here - or will for a while longer. Can I assume you are among the "enlightened, tolerant and progressive" I mentioned?

You and the rest of the Stalin Youth, tolerate nothing and no one but those with whom you agree. I'm proving that in spades (so to speak) right now.

Attempting to shout down the truth only amplifies the truth itself. The democrats learned that with the opposition to the fairness doctrine hence the stealth, end-run described above. Some of our 'best and brightest'here might take note of that fact.

Well Jelly Roll, the truth is your girlfriends are trying to get some time at the makeup mirror and you just keep hogging the whole thing. Put down the mascara and move away from the mirror and give the girls a chance. By the way black and red does not do a thing for you.

You're a one tricky pony, Smokey. You and Woodsweller both. As long as it keeps you happy, I'm cool with it.

You prove nothing beyond being the owner of a small, closed mind with a nasty side.

If Hallmark had a right-wing greeting card division, you could be a successful writer for them. It could be called Conclusory Platitudes.
