A Little Too Much

Okay, this is getting to be a little too much, if you ask me. No longer is anyone allowed to mention his middle name without being called a racist, or accused of trying to incite murder and mayhem, but now radio talk hosts are being censored for saying things that some are offended by, even though it's the truth!

What's next, having to guard every word that comes out of our mouths, and being wary of everyone who may be in earshot of our conversations? Will we have to start mistrusting friends, acquaintances, and even members of our own families?

The direction that things seem to be headed now, could assure those that speak out will end up in a gulag, somewhere. No, that's in Russia. Here, they're called internment camps, aren't they?

What in the world prompted this foolish talk, you ask?

Well, this had something to do with it:

"A talk-radio host was reprimanded on air by his executive producer Wednesday after he received complaints about his coverage of Sen. Barack Obama.

KDKA-AM 1020 host Kevin Miller was silenced when executive producer P.J. Kumanchik read a CBS statement accusing Miller of being unfairly biased against Obama."

"We want to apologize to listeners who have found your show offensive," Kumanchik said to Miller on the air."

Read all about it here.

And be very afraid.

Or, at the least, very incensed.

Yeah, and this is not an isolated case. Obamas jackbooted thugs are threateneing many who speak out against Obama..I get an e-mail at least once a day calling me vile names and even threatening my dog..but so far no one has approached me at home..could be because the word is out that I am armed when I answer the door.

Guyk..I know it's getting pretty bad.

I don't think that most people realize what is beginning to happen on a daily basis.

The Democrats have a lot in common with the Nazis. They use the media to convince people they are right, and they use strong arm tactics on the ones they can't convince.

She..thanks!

Yep, things do seem to be a little one-sided, to say the least!

Hermit..it's not pretty, and getting worse.

If all criticism of Obama is racist, can we start calling all criticism of Palin misogynist?

Jan said...

Dazd..that, and other things, too, such as prejudiced, because she is not quite like all the others.

Some of the statements concerning her border on hatred..such as a comment I saw that said she should be "offed."

If they hated Bush, just because he is who he is, it is nothing compared to what they feel for Palin.
