Anyone who wonders what America might have looked like with John Kerry as president, need only look to what he said today on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC.
Mr. Kerry was talking about yesterday’s stock market sell off when he said this;
“And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it’s exercising today. The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.
It doesn’t deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything is put into this tit-for-tat equal battle and America is losing any sense of what’s real, of who’s accountable, of who is not accountable, of who’s real, who isn’t, who’s serious, who isn’t?”
It would seem that Mr. Kerry is talking about the TEA movement and the TEA backed congressmen and women in the House Of Representatives. We can also assume that he is talking about the average citizens who support the TEA movement.
Mr. Kerry seems to have elected himself as the person who gets to decide which speech is correct and right, and which speech would never be heard. Now imagine a President Kerry if you will. One can imagine Pres. Kerry deciding to shut down the media all together if it dared to criticize him.
This is a clear demonstration of why elections matter. We can ill afford to allow elitist such as John Kerry to have any control over our freedom of speech. He should be removed from office in his next election run, but this is unlikely considering that Ted Kennedy kept his seat until his death?
Even the thought that we should be restricting the free expression of ideas is extremely dangerous to all of our freedoms. One can only wonder if this was a veiled threat or warning to the media. Could we be seeing legislation coming that would give a six member committee the power to decide on which speech is allowed and which would be banned? Couple this with the idea of forcing search engines to retain your searches on-line and we could be witnessing an attempt to suppress political opposition.
We may not have seen anything on this level since King George was sent packing.
