Or, How I Quit Living in Fear of Freedom of Speech, and Learned to Love Neo-Stalinism
I hope the events unfolding in Venezuela has been an awakening for people on how the Hard-Core Lefties think, and the cognitive dissonance they bathe in will lead to the horrors of tyranny every single time it is tried!
Hugo Chavez, who has been given dictatorial powers "only during the current emergency", and an extended term in office, has assumed the worship of the American Communists once only occupied by El Presidente Fidel Castro. And, like him, he will continue to find ways to remain in power far beyond his current term expires. Sort of like Darth Vader for earthlings without the twisted false messiah ending in Episode VI of Star Wars.
The Kids at Daily KKKos support and rationalize the gutting of Free Speech in Venezuela, and I promise you, they wish they could do the same thing here in America to Fox News (a breeding ground for the hated RINOS), Conservative Talk, and the Conservative Blogosphere via "Net Neutrality.'
An excerpt from a Buzzle article:
"anti-democratic coup mongering as well as sleazy soap operas," by those standards, three quarters (or more) of American Television, and virtually all of Hollywood should be at risk of being taken off the air! Most especially on the sleaze. The left have been coup-mongering, and the Democratic Duo of Pelosi & Reid backed off once they realized Americans will not stand for it. (80 million gun owners would soon correct that mistake!)
Radio Caracas Television - the country's "oldest and most popular" private channel - hosted an emotional farewell to viewers and depicted its imminent demise as a political watershed. "This marks a turn toward totalitarianism," said its director, Marcel Granier.
The government ridiculed the notion and said it was exercising its legal right not to renew the concession of a channel which had "polluted" the airwaves with anti-democratic coup-mongering as well as sleazy soap operas.
Here are some more articles on the brave souls fighting against tyranny in Venezuela, much like the Contras we helped two decades ago in Central America:
Never forget that socialism cannot survive when there is competition from other ideologies, and must sink to using violence to remove them. That is part of what the Fairness Doctrine is intended to set into play, to force successful conservative programs to loose part of their air-time to the socialists until a way can be found to remove them from the air.
The president says the new channel that took RCTV's place at midnight on Sunday (0400 GMT Monday) will better reflect the socialist revolution he has pledged to lead.
