For those not versed in history, Pastor Martin Niehmoller was a Protestant clergyman in Germany during the early days of the Nazi government in the 1930s. He initially supported Hitler but later actively opposed the Nazis. He was arrested by the Gestapo in 1937 and sent to the Sachsenhausen and Dachau concentration camps. Allied forces liberated him at the end of World War II. After the war, Niemoller famously said: “First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist, so I said nothing. Then they came for the Social Democrats, but I was not a Social Democrat, so I did nothing. Then came the trade unionists, but I was not a trade unionist. And then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew, so I did little. Then when they came for me, there was no one left to stand up for me.”

For the mods, I tried to save the time and placed my post here.


First they came for FOX,
But I did not watch FOX
Then they came for CNN,
But I did not watch CNN
Then they came for the WSJ,
But I did not read the WSJ
Then they came for me. . . .

Anita Dunn, the new White House Gestapo agent against anyone who says anything different from the White House talking points has targeted FOX as a wing of the republican party. I guess that means that all others are wings of the democrat party?

This is my question. Who is next? Gods forbid you actually disagree with the White House now. Tow the line, or get labeled. Is the "Fairness Doctrine" next? When do they draw the line? Are just web folks next? Would I be shut out?

This is sick and digusting. Just imagine for a moment if the Bush White House said the same thing.

That's what makes this so hard to fathom! Who does Barry think he is? Had Bush cut off the liberal media as enemies of the state, what would be the reaction?

It's getting more and more dangerous.

I belive, "what you tolerate you encourage," and will no longer encourage the unintolerable. I wont be called a liar by liars, or crazy by crazy people. I wont let theives call me a thief, and I wont let those that are conciously destroying everything that has made this country great, tell me I'm destroying the country!

ENOUGH!

Well said. It's like they aren't even hiding it any more. I personally believe the gloves have come off.

What fight ensues, remains to be seen.

The brand new Chief Diversity Officer in the FCC has plans for the likes of Fox news, conservative radio, and most likely sites like ATS. They want everyone to be on a level playing field, equally funded, equally staffed and equally able. Imagine the excitement in the NFL if that were the case. In this administrations eyes all final scores should end in a tie.

I think that the evil eye that the White House casts upon its opposition is beginning to rub off on ATS. I have been labeled an extreme right wing Republican more times in the last weeks than in my entire life.

I especially like the new Political Madness label that has been so broadly applied to any and all political threads past and present. As determined by the PTB of course.

Where was the Political Madness through all the years of anti Bush venom and hatred. Obama hasn't even been in office for a year and now all political posts that stray from strict political policy are deemed "Madness".

*gods* you are spot on! Remember in the old soviet union, if you disagreed with the PTB, then you were considered "sick" and had to be made well at government "clinics."?

Re-education Camps for those of you living in Rio Linda. . . .

The irony is that I have always considered myself "mainstream". Nothing out of the usual. Now I'm a damn freedom fighter fighting a war against people who have no clue.

Go figure.

oh, by the way. . . . . .

BTW, if my political ideology has put me in "Political Madness" then I'm buying a sofa and a nice coffee table, and making it my home.

"You can put me in a box, you can try to stop me from speaking, I'm just going to yell LOUDER!!!"

Next step will be, dollar tanks, so in fairness to the global command structure, America will operate in SDR's and food will be rationed, as long as you speak highly of the sitting administration.

the problem is the patriot act means america is a world police, so they can also target anyone in world, probably except china dn russia.

So be careful, in europe too.

Fox is basically a wing of the Republican party. How can anyone deny that it's not the propaganda machine for the party. They basically cover the daily talking points of the Republicans every day. They switched from being the Bush cheerleading station to the anti-Obama station the day he was elected. What other news station treated the death panel myth like it was real news?

I think the White House is correct as treating it as a political organization that has a goal of defeating anything they try to pass. Doing otherwise will be at their peril.

And so they treat the other news agencies, as what? Partners in crime? Associates? Spokesmen?

You can't have it both ways. Either there is a freedom to disagree or there isn't.

Which one is it?

So, what other news group actually reported on the 1.7 million people marching on washington? Th rest said what ? 40,000 people? CNN, MSNBC,and the networks (nbc, abc) all act as Obama's propaganda machine. Was it not CNN that started the "Armed, Angry white supremists outside Obama speeches" thing? That turned out to be a black man, but a clerverly edited video fixed that. What about Van Jones? Wasnt Fox the only one that asked the question? What about the Acorn videos? Wasnt that Fox? Didnt CNN ignore these stories? Why? Well, because it against What the left wanted to say or do, so they mobilized thier political arms.

It is obvious that all of them have a slant to them, that is fine. But, for the president to actually call one out, and refuse to go on it, plus call them names, well that just immature and frankly, silly. If Bush had refused to go ABC or CNN, their would have been calls for his head on a pike over it. Not that there werent reason enough to call for his head on a pike for other things.

The thing about talk radio and to a lesser extent FNC is that they wear their ideology on their sleeve, while the alphabet networks cuff said sleeve and try to pass what they report as unbiased. Its really only a matter honesty and integrity in reporting. Mainstream Journalism died years ago. This is why you are here, and that scares the crap out of them.

Right on Mike. I fear the time that we could actually trust ANY of them is long gone. 'The enemy of my enemy is my friend.' I don't know if I would go that far, but if the administration has a problem with Fox, good for them. My issue is that this crap is all made up. They sit around with the execs from Fox and drink beers talking about how they can discredit everyone else by making Fox look renegade and then BAM, the old switcheroo...then Fox is the only station left....and it turns out they ARE in bed with the WH.

It's all just entertainment....thanks to you folks here, I don't think I will ever trust a news broadcast again....ever.

My big question, is who is next?

Is some network going to have the stones to point out a flaw in the Obama administration?

Or is it just one boy who shouts that the emperor has no clothes?
