How The Left Tolerates Free Speech

In two words, THEY DON’T. They hate free speech. They don’t have any room for it. Eventually, they will do to you what they did to me, if by no other means than by bringing in the Fairness Doctrine through the back door. However, the spineless bed-wetting liberals at Air America Radio are not so subtle about it. I am now blocked from their website. (spoiling all my fun)  Read on for a little truth.

I enter a cogent and on-topic comment about a post on Air America Radio’s website regarding Rep. Joe Wilson’s ‘you lie’ comment. No name-calling, just the facts that I know they’ve not heard before. Here is an original screensave of the post.

The title of the post was ‘truth hurts, Wilson was right.’ The content follows . . .

Obama brought disgrace to Congress, using his own scare tactics. Basically carrying his campaign to the joint session of Congress. He did it by chastising all who disagree with his socialist design for health care that would not exclude illegal aliens.

He’s lies every time he says Republicans have no plan. Try looking at H.R.3400 in the 111th Congress. He’s lying to you, me, and everyone else. Yes, Joe’s right. Obama lies quite readily. Bringing disgrace to the office of the President.

He accused opponents of using scare tactics. Then said this:”Everyone in this room knows what will happen if we do nothing. Our deficit will grow. More families will go bankrupt. More businesses will close. More Americans will lose their coverage when they are sick and need it the most. And more will die as a result.” It was scare tactics like this that got his ‘economic stimulus’ bill passed.

But I digress, the Heller Amendment would have insured a citizenship test, by verifying Social Security numbers against the employment check database. It was shelved by Democrats.

So yes, Obama lied when he said that illegals would not be participating. H.R. 3200, the only bill in writing says that. And Joe Wilson told the truth.

On July 17, 2009, Democrats moved one step closer to giving free health insurance to the nation’s estimated 12 million illegal aliens when they successfully defeated (on party lines) a Republican-backed amendment, offered by Rep. Dean Heller, R-Nev., that would have prevented illegal aliens from receiving government-subsidized health care under the proposed plan backed by House Democrats and President Barack Obama.

It’s President Obama that is bringing disgrace to the nation.

The author of the Wilson article, Beau Friedlander, carries the water to make the President’s case this way.

What was it the man said? “You lie!” That’s it. What immediately preceded this ejaculation was an assurance from the president of the United States that health care reform did not include free medical assistance for illegal immigrants. The assurance was true. Wilson was mistaken.

The assurance may be true, and it also is true that H.R. 3200 does not say verbatim that illegal aliens are included. It doesn’t have to. Because it does say that they may not be excluded. See PG 50 Section 152 in H.R.3200 – health care will be provided to ALL non US citizens, illegal or otherwise.

(a) IN GENERAL.—Except as otherwise explicitly permitted by this Act and by subsequent regulations consistent with this Act, all health care and related services (including insurance coverage and public health activities) covered by this Act shall be provided without regard to personal characteristics extraneous to the provision of high quality health care or related services.

This includes personal characteristics like citizenship. That is precisely why the Heller Amendment was proposed. And precisely why Democrats shot it down. It was defeated along party lines.

My original entry, which happened to be the very first entry in the comment thread was entered on Sept 10, 2009 at 11:05 pm CST, (Sept 11, 12:05 am EST) was deleted. As you can plainly see now, the first comment shown is dated September 11, 2009 – 2:40am.

Knowing these people like I do, I did a screensave of the original post just because I can substantiate what I’m accusing Air America Radio of doing. But the lesson here is it’s not about Air America Radio in particular, it is about the flaming liberal Left in general, which are plentifully represented in the Obama administration.

Having seen that my post from yesterday was omitted, I re-entered it today. They apparently missed it, because it is still there, as this screensave shows. You can expect to see that also deleted as soon as one of their good little lemmings call it to their attention.

One other thing this screensave shows after I attempted to login. My handle there is ‘hmfwic.’ Guess who has been blocked from commenting on Air America Radio’s website? Yep, me.

That’s exactly the way the far left deals with opposing dialog, even when true . They hate free speech when it is speech that they don’t agree with. You’ll be hearing the Left’s influence on capital hill, and Obama’s Czars, doing their best to carry it on to talk radio (an industry in which the Left are ‘miserable’ failures), and certain cable TV channels.

One of the commenters / lemmings there called socialistfrogg challenges me for proof. It’s not uncommon for commenters like that to be so lazy as to not look it up for themselves.

Provide proof

where it says that illegals will get free healthcare. Cant do it, can you? You are a liar. But you always lie, dont you? Keep it up, right wing extremists! You will be even a smaller minority after the 2010 elections and Dem controlled redistricting.

You people will defeat yourselves for us, again.

That won’t happen. Not by me anyway, since I’ve been banned. The fool doesn’t even know that Air America Radio is limiting the information he could otherwise get. Another of the rabid Left’s tactics. The lemmings are kept in cocoons, free of convincing, albeit opposing points of views, even when true. They don’t realize they’re being cultivated into mind-numbed robots.

Let's Never Forget

Let’s never forget the first 3,000 casualties in the war on terror on this day eight years ago, September 11, 2001. May God bless and comfort them, their families and friends for this tragic loss.

The war is not over. Actually, the war on terror began long before Sept 11, 2001. We have lost our citizens and soldiers long before that date at the hands of these very same Islamofascists. No matter how you choose to characterize the war or the enemy, the fact is, there is a war being waged against us by an enemy that wears no uniform and hides among otherwise ‘innocent’ civilians. Suffice it to say, it is a very unconventional war being waged by an ideological enemy that thinks they are doing the bidding of Allah by killing so-called non-believers. That would be you and me.

Fighting this war and keeping Americans safe requires using capabilities that were not available in previous wars. The tools available now incorporated in the Patriot Act are tools that have been effective. They are also tools that are slowly but systematically being put back in the toolbox by the Left.

In fact, the Obama Justice Department is now exploring whether to prosecute our own people for serving and fighting this war using every tool in the toolbox.

There’s no better time to highlight the most searched post here on The Lunch Counter written two years ago. This isn’t spreading fear, and its not hyperbole. This is unfolding before your very eyes.

Democrats Soft On Terror

And one written five years ago puts it all into perspective.

Free, But Not Free To Kill, Patriot Act

Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) Kerfluffle

While the far Left is gratuitously foaming at the mouth over Joe Wilson’s emotional, and true, comment at Obama’s road show before a joint session of Congress, let’s recall a little history about disrespecting the President.

Just for giggles, look at all the examples that come up to a youtube search for bush booed.

OK, now look how Democrats disrespected him at the 2005 SOTU speech, when he brought up a national problem that needed fixing, Social Security. Listen to what he was warning about. Then look at the political and economic landscape today. Look how much spending and borrowing we’ve been doing, all the while still ignoring the pending insolvency of Social Security.

The reality about this clip and Democrats in Congress is this. Bush was telling the truth about Social Security. And last night Joe Wilson was telling the truth about Obama.
