“Shut Up” Lindsay…or um….”We’ll shut you up” Trent…

The need for the left to stifle free speech (except when it agrees with their world view) is now focused on talk radio. Democratic Strategist Lindsay Graham started by calling us Bigots. Now,Trent Lott, newly emerging spokesman for the left Progressives, noted that relative to opinions of the Amnesty bill… “Talk radio is running America,” he said. “We have to deal with that problem.”

I expect you’ll be able to read more at his Koss Diary soon…..

As Frosty Wooldridge sez:

Lott suffers distress from being exposed by talk radio. That illuminates his problems: lack of integrity and violation of his oath of office.

Lott knows no one shined a light on the 1986 amnesty. No one questioned the seven subsequent amnesties by Trent Lott, Teddy Kennedy, John McCain and the rest of those cockroaches running around the halls of Congress. No one questioned these ‘noble’ men’s disregard for enforcing those laws they created to serve a greater master—U.S. Chamber of Commerce and corporations. Today, we know Lott lies, McCain hides, Kennedy gorges and the rest of the Senate of the United States serves illegality over and above the U.S. Constitution.

Added Jan Herron:

“How brazen of “We, The People,” to inject our opinions into the debate!” she said. “English speaking talk radio listeners are the voices of intelligent and informed American citizens who are not buying snake oil from sell-out senators such as Trent Lott.”

Like Princess Lea, Amnesty supporters are grasping for anyone they can call an ally:

Think progress has the solution…..
The Right Wing Domination Of Talk Radio And How To End ItAt Right Wing News, conclusions as to how the “IMBALANCE” of talk radio has come to pass are presented in a report by The Center for American Progress and Free Press


‘Our conclusion is that the gap between conservative and progressive talk radio is the result of multiple structural problems in the U.S. regulatory system’….MEANS: Nobody wants to listen to Liberal Talk Radio, unless we force them to with enlightened regulation.

‘particularly the complete breakdown of the public trustee concept of broadcast…’MEANS: Nobody makes you listen to us anymore whether you like it or not.

‘the elimination of clear public interest requirements for broadcasting…MEANS:Nobody makes you listen to us anymore WHEN IT’S CLEAR TO US THAT YOU SHOULD….whether you like it or not.

‘the relaxation of ownership rules including the requirement of local participation in management…’MEANS: We want taxpayers to provide us with free air time because nobody wants to listen to what we have to say…whether you like it or not.

Trent Lott/Center for American Progress and Free Press’s PLAN:

Restore local and national caps on the
ownership of commercial radio stations.

Ensure greater local accountability
over radio licensing.

Require commercial owners who fail
to abide by enforceable public interest
obligations to pay a fee to support
public broadcasting.

The Quick and Easy solution:

A little known codicil of the regulations governing talk Radio has been found to be the primary cause of the Conservative leanings of this aspect of the media…..Simply fixing this small part of an old Government Regulation will resolve most of our issues and would control the dominance of Conservative Talk Radio in America….A small group of Senators and Lobbyists have been working behind closed doors to rewrite it and reach a grand compromise designed to facilitate swift passage of unpopular future legislation….

Known as the Fixed Establishment Clause

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; but shall make laws abridging the freedom of speech we don’t like, and of the press we don’t like; and shall regulate the right of the people to peaceably listen to the things we progressives don’t agree with, if they don’t we’ll petition the Government for a redress of grievances and make those with whom we disagree pay for it.
