Enjoy your freedom of speech while it lasts, folks. You can pretty much rest assured if the Democrats maintain control of the White House and have majorities in the Senate and Congress that it will be all-out war on any form of dissent against the state.
The astonishing lack of respect for anyone who disagrees with these people is appalling.
The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee said Wednesday that he would “love” to see controversial conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh dropped from the Armed Forces Network.
Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) called Limbaugh’s show “offensive” and told CNN he has been “delighted” to see advertisers drop the program in the wake of [manufactured -- ed.] outrage over Limbaugh calling a Georgetown University law student a “slut” and a “prostitute.” Sandra Fluke, the student, had testified for House Democrats in favor of the White House’s contraception coverage mandate.
Several Democrats, along with many liberal groups, have called for Limbaugh’s sponsors to leave him and for Clear Channel Communications to drop his show.
“I would hope the people that run it see just how offensive this is and drop it on their own volition,” Levin told CNN. “I think that is probably an issue that should be left to the folks that run that network. … In other words, I’d love to see them drop it, but I don’t think I’d legislate it.”
But give it time, and he’ll try to do just that.
