Highly Overrated?

Maybe Ginx (along with Frozen Brain) agrees.

Rahm fits right in with FCC "Diversity" Officer Mark Lloyd: "It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies."

Lloyd is a treasure trove of anti-First Amendment words and ideas. In 2007 while a Senior Fellow at the George Soros-funded, John Podesta-run Center for American Progress, he co-authored (with equally anti-free speech outfit Free Press) the ridiculous "report" entitled The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio.

The Left, having given up on reinstating the so-called "Fairness" Doctrine, have since sought alternate routes to arrive at the same censorious destination. This "report" is their road map, using FCC broadcast regulations "localism" and "diversity" to effect the same outcome - the silencing of conservative and Christian talk radio.-WH Chief of Staff Emanuel's Joke - 'The First Amendment...It's Highly Overrated' - and its Proper Context


  1. I'm flattered, but it's not my fault you don't see the difference between public disturbances and free speech.

    Other examples: If I came on your blog and commented, you would be respecting my free speech. If I came on your blog and organized a DoS attack, that would have nothing to do with speech.

    If a company's CEO or a union leader talks to a politician, that is free speech. If they donate millions of dollars on behalf of their organization, that's government corruption.

  2. Sorry, Ginx, but you're the one who focused on the Fred Phelps gang.

    Frozen Brain in the comments on your blog made it clear that "We actually do punish people who use public positions to preach hate."

    As usual, you equivocate in order to confuse, or you're just very confused yourself.

    From "Canadians do not have the degree of freedom of speech as persons in the United States enjoy. Legislation in Canada follows the British tradition, as do laws in Australia, New Zealand and some other former colonies. In particular, with a few exceptions, citizens are not allowed to incite or promote hatred, or advocate or promote genocide against certain specified groups."
