Geert Wilders: Could not be a more perfect example of government silencing free speech under the wet, dirty towel of labels like ‘hate speech’ and ‘inciting hatred’. Let this be a warning to all as Sharia and Dhimmification inserts its ways into our community fabric under the guise of tolerance. Free speech! Period!

“In the Soviet Union, they used to have ‘show trials’. The victim was already doomed to death or gulag. The purpose was propaganda. In virtually all cases there was no truth whatsoever to the allegations, but Marxism is never about truth, it is about power. What was truly ironic about all this was that the secret state, the Comintern and the KGB actually did all the crimes of which the victims were accused and yet were innocent! The Soviets were the ones conspiring behind the scenes, intimidating, etc.
This knee-jerk reaction on the part of the White House betrays Marxist muscle memory. The SHOW TRIALS railroaded people by the dictum ‘Accuse the victim of what you’re doing’ and that’s exactly what they’re trying to do in these TOWN HALLS.”
Currently, we are upset over retaliatory name calling (isolation/marginalization attempt) and requested reporting of naysayers by party loyalist (four steps removed from a knock on the front door at night?) with good cause. We should be outraged not just because of the Dem’s hypocrisy and double standards but because of larger issue of standing on the edge of the greased slope to conformity, suppression of liberty, big etc. Shout down and flex. Obama called for an in your face to your neighbor response. I say flex those expressive muscles in anticipation of future confrontations. If you are so busy storing hard to find ammo, you should be more concerned with the in-between phases of power….your voice….let it sound! You are fighting the non-representative government AND the state sponsored media (ssm)
Right of Assembly & Free Speech: Was good for all manner of uncivil discourse and displays toward the Nazis, George Bush and Dick Cheney. All the truly organized demonstrations and agitated theater by the Left was ok. Now, according to Pelosi et al, all this is terrible. Pathetic double standards. Hold real Town meetings…not Obama’s phony, contrived meetings. Obama was nothing but an ‘organizer’. Perhaps this transference from the Dem’s is a true indication of how they have operated for years?
Google images re Bush or Obama and it gets pretty bad. But, the hatred of Bush far exceeds the creativity of visual contempt for Obama….and, the hypocrisy of the silent Dem’s through all the years of shout downs and demonstrations by truly organized thugs was is quite apparent. So, one big shoutdown back…sit down and listen and STFU!
I’d pronounce on the need for change. Change in the White House, where Reagan and his minions were carrying on their dirty deeds. Change in the Congress, compliant and corrupt. Change won’t come from the top, I would say. Change will come from a mobilized grass roots. That’s what I’ll do, I’ll organize black folks. At the grass roots. For change.

I thought I was done. Really I did. Obama won. Bush is almost gone. I was ready to sit back and enjoy the ride. Damn it to hell. The bitch is back. One day she’s standing in front of a dying turkey talking about how she needs to get back to the business of running Alaska and the next day she’s making plans to head on down to Georgia to campaign for that devil, Chambliss.
So Sean, Ann, Rush, Sarah et al. I am not asking for you to give up even a single limb for your country… just your tongue. We’ve heard enough of your crap. We’re ready to move on to better days and smarter people.
Read this blog site for Margaret and Helen, as well as the comments section. Humorous ranting at first, until one sees the unrecognized bias, hate and venom spewing forth from these lock step Obamabots. They have been silent for too long? Who has stopped them from remarking before with such anger and mutual support?
In countries where thought control evolved to unthinkable acts, it was the busy body gatekeepers that reported their neighbors and caused their departure in the middle of the night to re-education camps or worse. Seriously, do you believe these citizens would hesitate to report inappropriate comments? I think not. These are the bread and butter for fascist countries…the empowered snitch.
I don’t particularly care for most of the radio celebs these ladies rant against, but the lack of civility they feel empowered to display, the utter hatred suggests they are equally stuck in their own narrow world, that they so firmly believe belongs only to the Right. Perhaps we are all too stuck and polarized. Be that as it may, throw out the O is a Muslim with the Lefts 9-11 Truthers…wingnuts are wingnuts. Throw out the Harvard records, although it is fascinating how a non-achiever out of Occidental made the connects to Mansour and Percy to get into Harvard. Throw out the Columbia University lack of records. But, ladies, please one of you dozen of so ‘bots, please research William Ayers (an no, not the Barack was only 10 y/o pathetic refrain) and seriously study up on Chicago relationships. Then if by some chance you see some connections to unusual legislation say two years from now…that has Ayers’ fingerprints on it (behind the scenes, you have to look now) then please be diligent and responsible enough to question why this Leftist/Marxist has that kind of sway. Aside from that, these ladies should just chill and enjoy this glorious time in history when all is right with their world, tolerance and understanding reigns, when they so strongly support liberty and free speech and the dignity of all women. Yes, the times are good and their love for their fellow citizens shines through.

Real look at the double standards that exist in universities and the work place. A woman employed at an Ohio university expressed a private opinion in writing to an editorial re Gay rights being equal to the civil rights movement for Blacks and People with Disabilities. The woman was fired from the university for expressing a personal opinion based upon her religious beliefs. Her free speech rights were violated. Listen to the video, whether you agree with her rationale or not, consider the secular oppression looming and how the civil rights laws can be abused and diluted.

To roll back the increasing, dangerous encroachment of human rights bureaucrats in the realm of free speech, the former publisher of the Western Standard argued the general public’s – and many politicians’ – until-then benign impression of the commissions themselves first had to change.
The means to accomplish this, Ezra pointed out, was easy: Let people know exactly what the commissions were doing, in matters like his, the complaints laid against Maclean’s magazine for an article written by Mark Steyn, and other cases that showed the disquieting lengths these appointed government agents seemed prepared to go to infringe on one of democracy’s most fundamental rights.
As awareness grew, Ezra reasoned, as human rights commissions became more and more “denormalized” in the public eye, so too would grow the opportunity for real reform.
We are hop, skip and a jump from our neighbors to the North, Canada of course, and their experiences with commissions that monitor behavior of their citizens. This is so obvious an example of government sanctioned thought control lurking to ultimately cinch down on all aspects of your life (blogs like this, news, literature, education, discussions with your neighbor). What stops the creep of oversight once you empower commissions to regulate fellow citizens? The abuses already abound from well intentioned government entities such as law enforcement, tax agencies, health divisions. Can you imagine the self rightous on the Left regulating our spoken and written word?
Given the fears in the US over a ‘bible thumper’ imposing moral/ethics on the citizenry via Christian politicians, why does not the opposite register with the Left when seeing the slippery slope that Canada has so easily slid? The ‘benign impression’ referred to above suggests these encroachments happen low key, probably in response to some egregious discrimination, and then expand like some goo once water (Leftist rightousness) is added.
Beware and follow Canada’s ‘denormalization’. We can avoid such normalities if we, as citizens strive for civility and fight for liberty.

Theater Director Forced Out for Supporting California’s Prop 8
“Liberal tolerance has reared its ugly head once again, driving a good man out of show business when it was learned that his religious convictions caused him to support California’s Proposition 8, which protects marriage from politically motivated defilement:
Scott Eckern, the Sacramento theater director whose political donation in support of California’s Prop. 8 ban on same-sex marriage has become a lightning rod in the debate over gay rights, resigned today [Wednesday]. He said he wanted to protect the California Musical Theatre, his artistic home since 1984, from further controversy.
Word of Eckern’s $1,000 donation — publicly reported under state elections law — spread rapidly on the Internet late last week, and Eckern drew criticism from some prominent stage artists…
…who blew gaskets at the notion of anyone in theater not toeing the politically correct line, raising such a firestorm that he felt called upon to quit.
I am disappointed that my personal convictions have cost me the opportunity to do what I love the most.
In penance for his sin against the Church of Moonbattery, Eckert has agreed to donate $1,000 to the Human Rights Campaign, a homosexual advocacy group.”

Socialist Eugene Debs (Imprisoned for the “Hate Speech” of the Time); Will The Leftist Apologist See a Similar Trend within their Ranks in the Near Future?)
Abuse of free speech can arise at either end of the political spectrum as evidenced by this piece re Eugene Debs, a turn of the century US Socialist. Imprisoned for his anit-war stance and undoubtedly his anti-capitalism positions, it is enlightening to consider a similar position from the Left today. Will the same apologist for Eugene Debs recognize the move to silence the Right in the years ahead and take a stand for the persecuted and the prosecuted then? http://calitreview.com/776
“The greatest dangers to liberty,” wrote Justice Brandeis, “lurk in the insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well meaning but without understanding.”
“At that point, America might as well apply for honorary membership in the European Union. It will be a nation at odds with the spirit of its founding, and embarking on decline from which there are few escape routes. In 2012, the least we deserve is a choice between the collectivist assumptions of the Democrats, and a candidate who stands for individual liberty — for economic dynamism not the sclerotic “managed capitalism” of Germany; for the First Amendment, not Canadian-style government regulation of approved opinion; for self-reliance and the Second Amendment, not the security state in which Britons are second only to North Koreans in the number of times they’re photographed by government cameras in the course of going about their daily business. In Forbes this week, Claudia Rosett issued a stirring defense of individual liberty. That it should require a stirring defense at all is a melancholy reflection on this election season. Live free — or die from a thousand beguiling caresses of nanny-state sirens.” Mark Steyn

Slowly Floating the Notion (Fairness Doctrine > Hate Speech > Political Correctness > Then the Blogs)
Last week the Congressman from New Mexico floated the Fairness Doctrine. Now, the sleaze ball Schumer…only more overtly and disparagingly. So it starts. How to push back? How to resist? How to revolt? The will shills will be the usual gang from the Regressives offering up their trial balloons for affect and letting the prop arm msm do the preparation. Watch for these. We need to develop every Conservative (Republican or Democrat) to form a coalition for Liberty in order to thwart this assault.
