Obama vs. Fox News

Posted by: ST on October 17, 2008 at 3:18 pm


Maybe one day, if he’s elected president, he’ll consult with the Democratic Congress to find a way to make it very very difficult for Fox News to exist.

Sound nuts? Well, on the surface it sounds crazy, but considering what both he and other Democrats have done before to try to – by legal means – shut down or shout down the opposition, the idea really isn’t so “out there.”

Jeff Goldstein responds:

Clearly, Obama is sending a message here, and the implied threat is visible for all those willing to see it: Obama does not brook criticism; and those who slow down “progress” by forcing him to stop and answer to large segments of the population are an inconvenient threat that must be neutralized.

Is there really any doubt that an Obama administration — backed by a Democrat supermajority — would not rubber stamp high-minded sounding legislation that is, in effect, designed to do nothing more than turn the notion of free speech entirely on its head?

Nope, no doubt from this corner. None at all.

    Forget the Fairness Doctrine.
    We’ve socialized the economy, we’re about to elect a guy who might not be eligible to run.
    The election process has been hopelessly corrupted.
    They want to nationalize the oil industry and health care. and there are whispers about the government taking over your 401k.

    Logical next step. Nationalize the press, radio and and mount an assault on the web.

    This is turning into a coup.

    The Messiah wants to criminalize accusations of voter fraud.

    ‘Nuff said. This, ST, is why my thoughs have been so dark lately. Obama will turn America into Zimbabwe – a Third World hellhole run by a power-hungry maniac. Count on it.

    I just read that story M.D.

    How people cannot see the danger that this man poses is beyond me. We can only hope enough of the population realizes it in time before election day.

    His comments about Fox news, the medias completely unheard of attacks on Joe the Plumber, and his latest paranoid delusional rantings on something as important as voter fraud is stunning.

    Just because Obama is intelligent and has an amazing personality doesn’t make him prepared to run our country. His lefty illuminati politicians in DC think they’ve found some puppet to do their dirty work and the American people are falling for it.
