Censorship is Coming

Did you read this? Police Raid Blogger’s Home

The blog was about “bad” Phoenix cops and reported any dirt that came up about the police force. Strangely, a search warrant was issued for the blogger’s home. He claims the police targeted him because of his blog. The facts seem to support the blogger’s claim.

This brings up a more fundamental question about free speech and what’s coming in the future. The Democrats are already pushing the Fairness Doctrine once again to try and shut down conservative talk radio. The same standard is unlikely to be enforced against “fair” networks like MSNBC, however. This attempt to muzzle conservative free speech is a scary trend and one that even the most die-hard liberal should be concerned about.

The day is coming when blogs like mine, where I criticize the president’s policies, will be monitored and perhaps even shut down by the government. You think it could never happen in America? I think you’re deluding yourself.

Obama is primarily concerned with his ratings, above all else. It’s evident from the spin and marketing that’s constantly being done on his behalf. A couple of weeks ago he had a press conference. He answered 5 questions. Every single person he took a question from turned out to be a plant from the administration. He’s terrified to look bad on camera, so he’s manipulating everything he can.

A president who’s concerned with ratings will do anything and stop at nothing to control the public perception. Shutting down conservative speech will be packaged as “silencing hate speech” and “bringing fairness to media.”

Fear any president who says we are “bitter Christians clinging to guns and religion.” A lot of America clings to guns and religion, but where I’m from, we call that the First and Second Amendments. I won’t quote the full speech because it makes him sound even worse than the tidbit I DID quote. (Interesting facts HERE)

Fascism always starts the same way. First control social welfare programs and expand them, then control industry, then take away guns, then restrict religion. I’d say we’re well along the path.

Free speech is an essential component of a free society. Guns are an essential part of a free society because they are necessary to overthrow a tyrannical government. That was the founders’ intent when they included the 2nd Amendment. That’s why it was important for guns to be in the hands of private citizens.

I just hope that we can wake up before Obama takes America down the toilet. We’re already circling the drain.

    I think you’re diluting yourself. – I think you mean to say I think you’re deluding yourself. Otherwise…good stuff.

    I was listening to, of all things, NPR yesterday and apparently there is a pretty significant ammunition shortage. Ever since Obama was elected to office people have been buying up weapons and ammo at unpresidented levels up 30 – 50% (I think) with people literally buying a “life-time” supply of ammunition in the event that the current administration enacts harsher restrictions on gun/ammunition ownership.

    I’m scared either way. I don’t like the idea of the government ignoring the constitution and restricting citizens from protecting themselves, but I’m also not a fan of what necessarily happens when the populace is over armed.

    Can’t we all just get along… now where can I get me a .45?
