free only the speech they agree with.. ban the rest

I just want to make sure I have this right. When a veteran opinion writer is accosted in her private life and asked an opinion, she is forced to retired because that opinion doesn’t conform with conservative ideology and no 1st amendment right  is afforded to her.

When a conservative blogger speaks his mind in private emails and those private letters are then released by his employer and he is forced to resigned for his private opinions,  no 1st amendment right is afforded to him.

A President banning the the rival  party’s mascot because he didn’t want the world to see them in a positive light? totally within the parameters of “OK”.

When a military leader and his circle of aides, all still on active duty thus having no rights to free  speech, makes disparaging comments against his commanders and is forced to retire HE should be afforded all privacy and rights of speech because his views bolster conservative ideology.

When a governmental agency restricts web surfing and tells it’s employees they will no longer be able to access certain websites while at work, websites like

  • Chat/messaging
  • Controversial opinion
  • Criminal activity
  • Extreme violence and gruesome content, including cartoon violence
  • Gaming

the outrages is palpable because even though this is an employer’s internet and the people being ‘censored’ are being paid by the government to work and not ‘game’,  waste and inefficiency is trying to be weeded out by the current administration to make government work better and cheaper… these people are having their 1st amendment and privacy rights infringed upon and we need to stop the totalitarian ‘thing’ that was elected to office? Are you insane, incompetent or have your brains finally imploded from having all that resentment build up from not being able to say “Well, he’s black for one” in polite company when voicing concerns about the current President ?

The predictable and  insanely large font on the Drudge report yesterday  leads you to a story on how the TSA sent a letter out informing employees that instead of standing around playing online all day while they are supposed to be working, certain website will now be restricted.  The comments on this piece should be shocking but I have become a reader of all comments sections these days because the stupidity that has taken over the ‘tubes’ is growing exponentially and I am as unable to turn away from them as I would be any horrific scene being played out in front of me.

-This is how it starts.
It’s as if Hitler himself was in charge.

-Does Janet Napolitano fit either, or both of the following?

1. The worst dregs of society gather around the tyrant – they are people of weak character who trade servility for unearned wealth.
2. Accomplices can profit greatly from their positions in the hierarchy.

Fear government.

-Sounds like China….

-It’s amazing how useless the first amendment is to these people now that they are in charge. Its how the left operates when in charge they ignore the constitution and when they are out of power they manipulate it to the other extreme and use its freedoms to harm, stiffle and dismantle progress. Absence of opposition is the sole intent of this administration like all dictators they must have no interruption of their propaganda. Truth is the worst enemy of chronic liers.

-China does tha same thing and they are a dick-tator-ship. What are we? I wonder if McCrystal is intrested in heading up a revolution, a military takeover. It works for some countries. Now my computer will blow up in my face, I will commit suicide (shot in the back of the head with a riflea) or I will be sent to a concentration camp for speaking against the King of America

What the hell is wrong with these people! It is NOT a free speech violation when an employer tells you that you can’t surf the web gaming and chatting while you are at work on their computers! Calling for a military take over because a Governmental agency head dared to stop employees from tweeting? These are the same neanderthals whose hair spontaneously combusted when they heard a private opinion and read private emails because  those of course are not issues of privacy or free speech to them, but we should overthrow the government because TSA said “no” to Instant Messaging?

It’s clear the small government these people beg for isn’t really small, it’s just conservative. It’s clear the spending they want curbed is spending for ‘those’ people and not their own socialistic or ideological programs.  It’s clear that the privacy they want only belongs to them while everyone’s life in and out of the bedroom or doctors office should be fully exposed, and the freedom of speech they advocate is only for speech against this administration, not  the last one mind you, only against this one.

Wiretaps on your phone without a judge signing off on it?
Searching your house while you’re not home and without a warrant?
Holding you in an undisclosed location without benefit of the law, a lawyer or even your family knowing where you are?

None of that is police state,tyrannical,dictatorship.. But preventing employees from playing “World of Warcraft” while on the clock is where the military should step in and take over?

God help us if these people get their politicians elected.

**update**

TSA backs off and caves into right-wing extremism..

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) reversed itself today, announcing that it will no longer block TSA employees, using work computers, from accessing websites that contain a “controversial opinion.”


Well there you go… the Right cried and now tax-payers get to foot the bill for government employees to access sites that could pose security risks to the country.. It’s a weird logic that says employers shouldn’t be forced to serve blacks or give access to the handicapped , but they should be forced to let their employees have internet even if it poses a national security risk to the country, not too mention the Right advocates letting people browse online sources while we’re paying them to work.

Ok, it’s not weird logic, it’s reactionary and more proof of the small minds that responds to each individual issue as being separate from the other, never seeing the whole picture because their world would crumble if they did. Let’s have a tax revolt, my taxes are really fair.  Say NO to socialism but stay away from my medicare and social security. Get out of our bedrooms, but ban homosexuality. Health options are between doctors and patients not government panels, but stop abortion.

I don’t think we need a voting ballot as much as we need a map to keep up with all the twists and turns this bizarre party hopes  to lead us on.

One response to “free only the speech they agree with.. ban the rest

  • uselesslegs

    It’s called…being selective. While both sides can be guilty of it…conservatives seem to have a special penchant for living in two separate realities at the same time, but never having them conflict.

    It’s like wanting no new taxes (or even less) but expecting to keep the same infrastructure intact. Even if you omitted programs galore, it won’t make a dent in the war budget or what’s spent overseas for engagements. You can’t have both, choose one.

    “There’s no jobs, give us jobs!! But don’t spend any money to create them or we’ll call you wasteful and a deficit spender!!”…wtf???
