Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

The Fairness Doctrine


On The Fairness Doctrine

There are several articles written and published that serious minded people need to read and heed. There are politicos that would like nothing better than to have a free reign at power and control over “We The People”, and the power of our votes and our voices. Most of the proponents of that philosophy, an unconstitutional one at that, are members of the Democratic Party. SO much for the self-proclaimed “heralders” of The People. One may conclude that the squelchers of Freedom of Speech are looking after their own political careers and if they can silence their opposition, the more secure they will be. Naturally, people that agree with them will be allowed to be as vocal as they so desire.

Free speech is under attack.

As Democrats in Congress eagerly line up to legislate what you hear on the radio it begs the question: what’s next? Newspapers? There’s no end in sight to their power grab.

Democrats like Al Franken have tried to compete with the liberal talk radio Air America; yet they failed miserably and the network collapsed into bankruptcy.

And why did they fail? Because people chose not to listen. In this country’s Free Market system radio stations succeed and fail based on their content. If people do not like the content of the program, they turn it off. Our marketplace guarantees your freedom to choose what you want to listen to; and that freedom is what doomed liberal talk radio to collapse.

Realizing that their ideas couldn’t compete in the Free Market, Democrats schemed for ways to crush conservative talk radio’s success.

Their answer? The so-called “Fairness Doctrine.”

Revival of the “Fairness Doctrine” would have the chilling effect of censoring conservative talk radio by requiring radio stations to air liberal content. Air liberal content or your station license will be revoked.

It’s unfortunate that Democrats are willing to trample on our First Amendment rights for political gain.

What part of Congress shall make no law doesn’t Hillary Clinton and Al Franken understand?

At the Fairness Doctrine Watch blog, linked to The Truth Laid Bear, established by NZ Bear, also instrumental in the highly successful Victory Caucus, there is a wealth of information in regards to the Democrat Party’s Unfairness Doctrine…

Monday Morning Roundup

Lee Butler, writing at OpinionEditorials.com:

“Democrats hate talk radio because once opened up to the market for a free exchange of ideas and viewpoints, talk radio flourished with Conservative thought and commentators, while liberals were left scratching their heads in wonderment and stewing in their own anger for losing control of that medium.

One of the main bastions of liberalism is the repression and domination of rational and diverse thought. They talk regularly about the importance of diversity, but it’s not true diversity they seek.

In their world diversity only exists in a manner directed entirely by liberals. For them, the only rational thought is one steeped in liberalism and the expression of only those thoughts should be allowed to exist in their own manufactured Utopia.”

TownHall.com is chock full o’ Fairness Doctrine opinion this week. First, Russell Shubin:

“What happened upon the dissolution of the Fairness Doctrine was an opening up and a leveling of the playing field. The center-right found an opportunity to express itself through a medium that could still reach the masses: talk radio. Rush Limbaugh’s demonstrable ability to entertain while engaging the issues of the day made such programming profitable (for station operators, syndicators and, yes, Rush too) while still being informative. Whatever your opinion of the staid voices of National Public Radio, it shouldn’t surprise us that deregulation increased the talent pool and drew out broadcasters that can draw an audience.”

And be sure to also check out Harry Jackson and Paul Greenberg.

There is a video at this blog as well and I have placed it in my VODPOD above. It is Mitch McConnell Mitch-Slapping the Democrats again.

Scroll through the tags on my blog and you will find a tag labeled “Fairness Doctrine“. Click, read and learn. Including this post, you will find 17 entries and there are more to come…bank on it.

Over at the Cost Of Democrats, there is another wealth of information made readily available to the serious minded. Trolls go there as well but they haven’t the mental stamina to keep up.

The Captain’s Quarters has “A Colloquy On the Fairness Doctrine“. A CSPAN video can be viewed here in which the smiling Democrats are seen introducing the bill to silence the majority of Americans.

Newsbusters has a take on the socialist democrats as they weasel their way into the everyday lives of “We The People”.

If you had any question concerning how much the left wants the reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine in order to kill conservative talk radio, you got your answer on the floor of the Senate Friday.Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minnesota) offered an amendment to the Defense Authorization bill that would prohibit the Federal Communications Commission from reinstituting this archaic edict.

As NewsBusters reported on June 30, such an amendment overwhelmingly passed in the House a few weeks ago by the tally of 309 to 115.

Unfortunately, Senate Democrats didn’t even want to debate this issue, and, instead, lead by Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Illinois), objected.

For those interested, an unofficial transcript of Coleman and Durbin’s exchange – which marvelously depicts the differences in how liberals and conservatives view the Fairness Doctrine – follows (video available here):

The Democratic Party is pushing us Patriots closer and closer to another Boston Tea Party. IAW the Constitution, that is our right.

There is another video in my VODPOD Labeled Kennedy to Hillary-Big Business payback that you will want to see and take to your own blogs.

  1. Fairness Doctrine is Orwellian Doublespeak for :
    1) I’m a Democrajihadiim and I can’t keep up.

    2) I’m a Democrajihadiim and I need government intervention to have my views heard.

  2. Hightower, Cuomo, Gore, Daschel, Franken and others tried and failed. That’s the market. Let the listeners choose the personality, content and production values that satisfy their needs.

    The blatant attempt to squelch conservative comment is both morally and constitutionally wrong. Men of reason and good will must condemn it.

  3. True statement. However, where will we find any “men of reason” in DC?

  4. Garfish – I’m a bit confused by your usage of names. IE: democrajihadiim. Are you saying that if one is a democrat then he/she is automatically a jihadist?

  5. draoul troll…nice try but you know better. Very typical coming from you, a self-admitted Jihadi troll and a self-confessed communist.

    Moron.

  6. to: raoul the trollian jihadiim
    don’t be so obtuse. Democrajiadiim are those who, like you, want a full defeat in Iraq to allow the Socialists in Office (Demublicans/RepubliKrats) to go further with the Socialsit agenda.

    You raoul are most likely a mole for the jihadiim, and should be purged from the earth by a military tribunal like the nasty little zit you act like. squeezed until your head pops.

    And actually I know a few Democrats who I like, they just don’t happen to be Democrajihadiim. oddly they both detest Shrillary and Obamaramalamadingdong.

  7. And like I’ve said a million times before – produce the proof liar. Just because one hates this despicable government it does not imply the person is a commie or jihadist or whatever other silly tag people like you use to hide behind so you don’t face the truth.

    And, talking about the truth – what do you think about the latest intel report? It says Al Queda is stronger now than ever before and MORE capable of coming here now. It flies in the face of ‘fight them over there so they don’t come over here’. Any profound comments Mr. Patriot or are you going to just delete my comments again? LOL

    Your boy bush must be proud of his fellow Texan – you. You hide and run just like he does from facts.

    Moderator Snooper: As the troll so desires, here is the proof that IT admitted to being a Jihadi Troll

    Moderator’s Verbiage: And there we have it. The troll has admitted to being a Jihadi Troll.

    Oh really? And when did that occur? Since you delete everything we on the Left write because it smacks of the truth, how can anyone believe a lying sack of fecal matter like you? All I gotta say, for the last time is fuck you, fuck the troops and fuck this illegal government. All of you are a sorry bunch of losers who wouldn’t know what the word ‘patriotism’ is if you fell over it. But that is no different than your lack of knowledge concerning God. You mix Him up with the lying piece of crap, Bush, all of the time.

    Cheerio losers – I’ll stop by in a while to see what you’re whining about next. ha ha ha..

    Moderator’s verbiage: ZERO!! Read your OWN words you pathetic Jihadi Troll. Check out #6, moron. LOL!! What a jerk! You the Chief Coward of all trolldom. Congrats asshole!! LOL!!

    Just for you, moron: Jihadi trolls wish they had what we have

  13. Troll 2 wants to know why ITS off-topic posts get erased.

    IT claims these comments have nothing to do with the topic.

    The comments started out that way but which troll tried to veer off?

    Troll 1 did.

    Well done and thanks for the proof.

    Troll 2…drop dead and join Reid’s disapproval pukes.

  14. There are some very well intentioned people who vote for Democrats no matter what. And they actually believe that Big Brother/Big Sis should “control” what the people hear on the radio and read in the newspaper.

    Comment by Mick | August 16, 2007 | Reply

  15. Anyone whose intentions are good, by voting for ‘crats exclusively, demonstrates a lack of intelligence, judgment and information all of which are required to cast a worthy ballot.

    Those so described are morons at best and should not be allowed to vote.
