You know the Left is desperate when they start using the kids.
It’s time to revisit the follow-up petition filed by the National Hispanic Media Coalition in May, 2010 to the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). After reading the 25-page document with over 30 Soros-funded groups signing on, this little sentence caught my attention:
NHMC et al is extremely concerned with the negative impact of hate speech in media on society and particularly on children.
The various organizations listed as part of this blueprint to destroy free speech in America couldn’t care less about the little ones. The Marxist Free Press run by Robert W. McChesney of “tearing down capitalism brick-by-brick” fame is one; and then there’s the Center for Media Justice and the Media Justice League to name a few.
After they feign worry and concern about what the tikes will hear on Rush Limbaugh and see on NRB they predictably reveal their desire to dismantle the fourth estate, airwave-by-airwave, chip- by- chip. The petition, at any other time, during any other recent administration, might be a farcical document. But these groups are backed up by billions of dollars, radicals like Soros and Obama and a FCC Diversity Czar, Mark Lloyd, who thinks Venezuela’s crackdown on private media is utopia.
The authors tell the FCC that after investigating the “correlation between hate speech and hate crimes” in the “current media landscape” they will use the information to:
…specifically confront and educate hate distributors about the consequences of hate speech and encourage them to self-regulate….since NHMC filed the Petition in early 2009 hate, extremism and misinformation have been on the rise.
They then proceed to list actual incidents of hate crimes involving white supremacists and anti-Latino bigots. They conveniently exclude racist attacks against white people. But that’s because:
traditional media has become less diverse and less competitive…in this same atmosphere hate speech thrives as hate has developed as a profit-model for syndicated radio and cable television programs…on the Internet..speakers can hide in the cloak of anonymity.
As usual, by the end of the whole revealing mess the children are all but forgotten. But it’s definitely worth a serious read or re-read. Our right to speak freely is on the line and these people aren’t going away.
