Last August, the Obama White House sent up the moonbat signal, requesting its mindless minions to inform on their fellow citizens:
If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to email@example.com.
That didn’t work out very well (we think), but the Dems haven’t given up their effort to stamp out dissent. Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) explains:
Just when you thought it was safe to start expressing your right to free speech, Democrats in Congress are gearing up for a vote on a new piece of legislation to blatantly undermine the First Amendment.
He’s talking about the DISCLOSE Act (HR 5175), which resticts how some entities can exercise their free speech rights. But it’s the exemptions that tell the tale:
There is an exemption for some in the media sphere like newspapers, TV news, and the like. However, there is one driving force in today’s public debate that is NOT exempt.
Now, see if you can guess what “driving force” that would be (hint: it ain’t the NYT). Come on, you can do this. Give up? OK:
Bloggers will not have the same exemption provided to other media sources …
This is, of course, blatently unconstitutional. But that hasn’t been much of an impediment for the Democrats lately.
I guess it’ll be shot down in the courts, assuming it passes. But the mere attempt demonstrates that we need to get rid of these fascists as quickly as possible.
Come on, November!
