    After hearing news the other day that the Obama administration had appointed a new position to monitor and push back against negative online press we thought some liberals in DC might think it wasn't enough. So we sent Joe Schoffstall out to see just how far liberals would go to silence conservative speech. Joe went around Georgetown in DC with a petition to "Ban Conservative Hate Sites" that said this:

    "The undersigned hereby adamantly demand that the United States government shut down right wing hate sites. The hate speech propagated by sites like the Drudge Report, Hot Air, Instapundit, Big Government, and others must not be allowed to corrupt our political discourse any longer. These sites are dangerous not only to truth and freedom but also to our society as a whole. BAN THEM NOW!"
    That is pretty radical rhetoric that no reasonable, freedom-loving, red-blooded American could possibly agree with, right? Well, see for yourself:

    You're taking this all out of context. Liberals love free speech. No, really. And if you disagree, the government should silence you.

    So DC Liberals want to put the kabosh on free speech for everybody except themselves?

    May I remind them of Bush Derangement Syndrome and how many of their Dan Rathers got fired for unsubstantiated published lies written to get rid of someone everybody else loved?

    If I could play the trumpet, I'd use the wah-wah sound expander. :rolleyes:

    Absolutely NOT!! This is a BAD idea.

    This country needs access to ALL viewpoints and besides, who would judge?

    Bad idea... keep speech free the internet.

    yep, because I'm positive that if someone were passing around a petition to outlaw gays, and people were signing it you would be on here posting no big deal until it actually happens.

    Another dumb ass who is only concerned about the their own rights.

    You are so right Dave. We are always free to agree with them, and when we forget to, it is under the bus for us. ;) Remember 4+1=5 only for as long as we are told it does.

    Speaking of hate on the internet, I HATE it when a bunch of Socialists run around DC calling themselves "Liberal" as they seek to infringe on other peoples "Liberty".

    Bastards! :evil:
