No. That is not an actual quote. But it is a threat we are facing head on.
From Glenn Beck – “There is a piece of legislation making its way through both the House of Representatives and Senate that could have real implications for freedom of speech in the media and on the Internet. On Wednesday, Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) introduced a bill that seeks “to examine the prevalence of hate crime and hate speech on the Internet, television, and radio.” Meanwhile, Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) introduced a companion piece in the House.”
From the Senate – The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 – (S.2219)
From the House – The Hate Crime Reporting Act – (H.R. 3878)
Perhaps now is as good a time as any to throw in an article by Victor Davis Hanson from last week – The new Inquisition has begun – “We are in a new Inquisition. Self-appointed censors try to stamp out any idea or word that they don’t wish to be aired – in the pursuit of a new race, class, gender and environment orthodoxy.” And fairness. Can’t be leaving out fairness!
BEHOLD! The future….
Chinese blogger jailed under crackdown on ‘internet rumours’ –
Qin Zhihui, who was detained in official effort to gain greater control over social media, found guilty of ‘provoking troubles’
A Chinese court has jailed a blogger for three years, state media has reported – the first person to be sentenced in a government-led crackdown on so-called internet rumours.
Qin Zhihui, one of hundreds of bloggers reportedly detained in an official campaign to assert greater control over China’s popular social media, was found guilty of “slander” and “picking quarrels and provoking troubles”, state broadcaster CCTV said on Thursday.
China has said the crackdown launched last year is aimed at maintaining social order, but rights groups have accused Beijing of limiting freedom of speech online to protect the ruling Communist party.
This whole week has been one thing after another. They want our water, our land, our guns, our money, our voices – our very lives. Surely it is time to wake up now peoples.
