I’m not sure how, but I got on the e-mail list for “Conservative Outpost,” which is exactly what it sounds like. As an information junkie, I read it so I can understand all sides of the issues. Their latest missive was commentary from Drew McKissick (screenshot attached) titled “Advancing censorship with dead bodies.” I know what you’re thinking: It’s about Hosni Mubarak, right?
After all, the Egyptian military leader and president, is seeing his country go through a violent civil upheaval. Protesters are dying in clashes with riot police, internet and cell phone service is being shut off by the government and police are reportedly confiscating cameras from guests, including tourists, at the Hilton Hotel in Cairo.
Advancing censorship with dead bodies? Gotta be Mubarak, right?
No. It’s Obama and the Democrats. See, Obama didn’t speak up soon enough or forcefully enough when Conservatives were blamed for inspiring the shootings in Tucson with their violent rhetoric, and now some Democrats are questioning if it’s time to re-instate the Fairness Doctrine.
It’s not, and they won’t. Those calls, which do happen from time to time, have not amounted to anything in the past, and President Obama himself has previously spoken out against it.
So for those of you keeping score at home…In the past week or so we’ve had a Democrat on the floor of the House compare Republicans to Nazis and this guy, McKissick, accuse Democrats of “advancing censorship with dead bodies.” Now that’s what I call bi-partisanship!
