    Statistically speaking, a US citizen is more likely to rape/murder your daughter, wive, or mother than an illegal alien.

    As for your threat, bring it the fuck on. You dumbasses think you are the only ones that are armed? We are smart, you are a dumbass. Think about that.

    We need some kind of government agency to keep them in line. "Ministry of Truth" has a nice ring to it.

    You couldn't shoot slow-moving fish in a barrel with a shotgun, who do you think you're fooling?

    I know some rednecks that aren't the sharpest tools in the shed, but they can hit a quarter @ 200 yards consistently. I can too.

    Didn't Fox have to put in a disclaimer that they were "entertainment only" or some shit? I think /all/ MSM should have to have them personally... They're all biased click bait anyway.

    Clearly we need some kind of official government news outlet. So we can be sure we're getting the Truth.

    NBC does not need a license. Television stations need broadcasting licenses.

    The Constitution protects freedom of the press, because a free press is the check on the power of our elected leaders.

    Funny you mentioned fascists, since there was a president who actually did try to eliminate this check on the government powers. Early in his second term, Barry's FCC proposed placing "agents" in media newsrooms "to determine how stories were selected, weather there is bias in reporting, and weather critical information need are being met." These monitors would be placed not only in broadcast newsrooms, but also in print media outlets where FCC doesn't even have authority over. In other words, these monitors would be intimidation tool placed within media to send a message, if government doesn't like your reporting licence could be revoked.

    Only thanks to the current FCC commissioner Ajet Pai, who exposed the existence of above mentioned plan and caused outrage, the plan itself was scrapped. What Barry actually try to put in place is fascism. Did the media go nuts over that like they're going after Trump's tweet? Did Congress complained about fascistic President back then? I don't recall any of it.

    Anyone remembers when Barry threatened Bob Woodward over article in WaPo that sequestration budget cuts did not come from Republicans, but were proposed by the White House and personally approved by, surprise, surprise... Barry himself. Shortly after Woodward revealed these threats, other journalists came forward with similar experiences: Ron Fournier (National Journal), Lenny Davis (yeah, Cohen's lawyer) also was threatened when he published unfavorable articles about Barry in Washington Times. The same thing happened to Jonathan Alter, who is actually a liberal journalist, but he dared to ask the question that wasn't preapproved.

    Is that what fascists do?

    If only you knew that FCC has no authority over printed media.

    Again fake news MSNBC and CNN should have a requirement to warn viewers they are fake news and the content is for entertainment purposes only. Maybe before each show, or superimposed on the bottom of the screen or something. It is hilarious if anyone thought MSNBC and CNN were actually news, but there are psychotics out there as evidenced by the Rachel "Blinky" Maddow fan who tried to assassinate republicans.
