Democrat attempt at censorship fails

George W. Bush is Hitler incarnate. Our Constitution is evaporating and The Republicans are turning the country into a police state...

Or so Democrats would have you believe. Yet, for some reason, it's these Democrats who have been trying to use the government to censor their political opponents. The latest attempt has come with the Democratic party trying to block The Sinclair Broadcast Group's plan to run the program, "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal," two weeks before the Nov. 2 election. Thankfully, they have failed. The FCC is not going to intervene. (Needless to say, my VCR will be running when that baby comes on).

Freedom of speech won this round. But will it win the next round? What happens if the next FCC chairman is more sympathetic to Democratic causes? This example, (as if you needed any more), illustrates how much Liberals hate freedom when it applies to anybody but themselves. Republicans made no attempt to use the government to silence Michael Moore or moveon.org. The Conservative defense to the Moonbat Movement has been to debunk their saliva-spewing, purple-faced, quivering-with-anger, foaming-at-the-mouth ravings with facts, and then publicize them via talk radio and blog sites like this. The Democrat response has been to hope for mainstream media silence, then smear the attackers, then try to censor.
