During a Senate committee hearing that dealt with television retransmission, Sen. Jay Rockefeller (Dem. – West Virginia) had the temerity and despicable hauteur to state that he wished that he could just have the existence of FOX News and MSNBC terminated by the F.C.C. It seems that the news media is “interfering” with the running of government and their ability to govern by providing information to the public which they do not find helpful.
An informed public is a “dangerous” one according to this philosophy. After all, we actually can attempt to track their legislation, activities, corruption and attempts to deprive us of our rights and liberties (Obamacare, Cap and Trade, etc.) and act on these. We would be a nuisance to their privileged and powerful positions and lifestyles as politicians.
This pronouncement is not surprising and is consonant with the elitism and arrogance that the Congressional Democrats habitually exude and which has become part of their genetic/ideological makeup. A few prime examples:
Of course, Obama is a high profile a paragon of this pernicious comportment.
This attitude is one that is a precursor to tyranny and an autocratic government and is why we must remain ever vigilant of their threats and actions.
We must also vanquish this attitude and have these “representatives of the people” removed from office.
Senator Jay Rockefeller Wishes FOX News and MSNBC Would Just Stop Existing
Posted in Liberaland by Alan • November 17, 2010,
Senator Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia somehow believes that free speech exercised on FOX News and MSNBC makes his job harder, and in his heart of hearts he wishes the government could shut them up.
At a Senate committee hearing about television retransmission consent on Wednesday, Mr. Rockefeller spoke broadly about the ways he believes television is ailing, and in doing so he singled out the “endless barking” of cable news.
He said: “There’s a little bug inside of me which wants to get the F.C.C. to say to Fox and to MSNBC, ‘Out. Off. End. Goodbye.’ It would be a big favor to political discourse; to our ability to do our work here in Congress; and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and, more importantly, in their future.”
Sadly for Senator Rockefeller, the FCC doesn’t have authority over cable television.
We may all remember the incident during Congressional hearings when Sen. Barbara Boxer demanded to be called “Senator” because she “worked so hard to earn the title”. This same haughty attitude seems to be genetically programmed in numerous other Democratic politicians such as Barney Frank, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Charlie Schumer, Alan Grayson, Charlie Rangel, and Maxine Waters.
America needs to be vaccinated against these despicable politicians.
Once again firebrand Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) is spewing irresponsible, incendiary and groundless charges against the Orlando, Fla. Area urologist who posted a sign on the door of his office recommending that those who voted for Obama seek care elsewhere. In fact like many other uber partisan Democrats of his ilk, he has now transformed this freedom of speech issue into a racist one.
The level of hatred and intolerance which Grayson exhibits regarding this situation (as well as many others in the past) shows him to be emotionally and rationally challenged and not fit for his job as Representative. He should be investigated and censured as well as removed from office by those in his district.
Any attempt to silence this free speech is an attack on us all. Furthermore, we must prevent the government from using bullying, heavy handed or legal tactics to challenge our rights of expression and freedoms in general. By the way, where are all those demagogue Democrats who speciously claim that there is unwarranted vitriol in American discourse yet won't rein in one of their own? (They won't because they would level the same charges!)
As for you, Alan Grayson, we have an open question indirectly related to this case:
How can you reconcile the fact that 95% of all blacks voted for Obama and yet not charge that this constitutes racism?
There can be no other rational explanation for this yet we have not heard one word about this from any Democrat regarding this racist vote.
What if 95% of whites had voted for McCain? We are sure that you would vehemently consider that to be egregious racism!
Grayson: Doctor shooing away Obama backers will deny treatment to blacks

A doctor who posted a sign at his practice asking Obama supporters to seek care "elsewhere" will end up denying service to many African Americans, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) said Friday.
Dr. Jack Cassell, an opponent of the healthcare law President Barack Obama signed last month, put up the sign at his office in Grayson's district.
"Well, in fact, where he lives, in Mount Dora, which is in my district, many, many of the Democrats who live in Mount Dora happen to be African-Americans," Grayson said on CNN. "So, by saying that he will not treat somebody who supported Obama, he's saying that he's not going to treat a large number of African-Americans in the community."
Grayson, a freshman who represents a Republican-leaning district, gained national attention during the healthcare debate last year when he said the GOP's healthcare plan was for seniors to "die quickly."
Cassell has said that he is not violating medical ethics rules.
"I'm not turning anybody away — that would be unethical," Cassell, 56, told the Orlando Sentinel on Thursday. "But if they read the sign and turn the other way, so be it."
But Grayson said that he was violating the rules and that he will probably be disciplined by medical licensing authorities.
"How many people walked in -- walked up to his front door, saw the sign, and turned away?" he asked. "How many people referred from other physicians in the community, including primary care physicians, how many patients saw that sign and walked away?"
Asked what kind of punishment Cassell should receive, Grayson said "Well, whatever the medical authorities think he should get. But it is a clear violation of ethics, and it's a particularly ugly one. Why is it that the right wing is so preoccupied with denying people health? Why is that?"
