My biggest concern about this huge subject of Assange, Wikileaks and Operation Payback is how it will be used by the Obama Administration which is
already trying to find a way to censor speech on the internet and in the media.
Strangely enough, the Far Left Leadership appears to be the ones most critical of this and the other side is staying neutral. I find that very odd and
there must be a reason.
Is it the Conservatives are fearful Obama will use this as a tool to get the control of the Internet and Media they want so badly? Is it that the Left
who would normally support this fully, sees this as a weapon to use to get the control of speech they want? Perhaps.
We have seen time and time again those associated with the extreme Left of the Democrats propose controlling speech through various means. The Obama
Administration and his mouthpieces most certainly are looking that direction. Those of you following along also know about Howard Deans recent tirade
about removing FoxNews from the air and Rush Limbaugh. In other words censoring speech for anyone who is not in line with their political views.
A couple of weeks ago, Obama's mouthpieces were even saying to remove both FoxNews and MSNBC. They threw MSNBC under the bus as cover in my opinion.
Doubly odd as the CEO of GE who is on one of Obama's advisory committees, that we just found out got billions in low interest loans even though they
don't qualify and it was hidden from us, writes the paychecks for NBC News and MSNBC who both supported Obama. Can't get any more in our faces than
that. The loans were an obvious political bribe.
From the FCC directly!
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) receives numerous complaints that television and/or radio networks, stations or their employees or
guests have broadcast extreme, incorrect, or somehow improper political, economic, or social statements. Often consumers complain that certain
broadcast statements may endanger the United States or its people, or threaten our form of government, our economic system, or established
institutions like family or marriage. They say these attacks are “un-American” and an abuse of freedom of speech. The FCC also receives complaints
that some broadcast statements criticize, ridicule, “stereotype,” or demean individuals or groups because of the religion, race, nationality,
gender, or other characteristics of the group or individual. Finally, many consumers complain that television or radio broadcasts are obscene,
indecent, profane, or otherwise offensive.
So who exactly is complaining to them they want Political Speech controlled? Only a died in the wool proponent of Communist Style Socialism would
suggest such a thing. We know Obama has spent his life socializing with that crowd and even made appointments to people who have in their own words
supported that agenda.
It seems to me that Assange and his cohorts could well give them the ammunition they need to control speech and cause way more harm than good. One
thing is for sure, we have not heard the last of this. If this next dump causes even one death or leads to anything bad happening, watch them use it
to control speech. So does that make Assange a Hero or a Devil and what is his real agenda. Why is he hanging out with people who support Castro and
Dictatorial Governments and want to destroy Capitalism and Freedoms? His choice of one night stands for instance.
This is a deep Rabbit Hole and I'm amazed so many here view it in such a shallow manner, letting this person lead them around by their noses just
because they are angry and not thinking clearly. How many travesties throughout history were cause by this? Many! He is no Hero. He simply took
advantage of an angry, mentally disturbed Soldier (from his own Mothers words) and used the information he illegally stole while committing what may
be Treason and used it for his own ends. He accepted the illegally obtained material and used this disturbed person to promote himself. The Soldier
took nearly all of the risk. I doubt Assange will be charged with anything and that Soldier is in deep, deep trouble.
Your thoughts. I really want to know what people think after they take a breath and consider the facts, leaving their emotions aside and engaging the
critical thinking parts of your brains. This is not an attack on the idea of helping Whistlblowers which I support fully. This is about a man trying
to bring down the System for nefarious reasons that may not be what you think you are supporting. May even be working for others with less than noble
