FCC Chief Appoints Diversity Committee Members (No Conservatives etc. need apply)

FCC Acting Chairman Michael Copps, announced the full membership of the commission’s Advisory Committee on Diversity for Communications in the Digital Age.

The committee’s reason for being is to guide the FCC about policies and practices to enhance the participation of minorities and women in telecommunications and related industries. Access to capital--one of the biggest bugaboos to entry--will be examines as well as transactional transparency, career advancement, and the impact of new and emerging technologies on diversity issues. The committee is re-chartered through Dec. 16, 2010.

“The sad truth is that the diversity of this great nation is not reflected in the ownership of its media and telecommunications facilities,” Copps stated. “The time has come to chart a new course, to roll up our sleeves and get to work to craft sustainable solutions. I would like the committee to convene as quickly as possible and, along with whatever priorities it has, to take up two issues that I believe warrant immediate attention: (1) recommendations regarding the state of past commission Adarand studies and the nature, scope and methodology of any additional studies or updates that are necessary; and (2) recommendations on a full file review process that the FCC can implement on an interim basis and that builds on the work done by the prior diversity committee.”

The committee is scheduled to hold its first meeting May 7 at 10 a.m., Eastern in the FCC headquarters meeting room, TW-C305, at 445 12th Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20554. The meeting is open to the general public.

TOPICS: Constitution/Conservatism; Crime/Corruption; Government
KEYWORDS: bogus; censorship; fairnessdoctrine
According to Media Research:

The panel is made up of more than a dozen left-wing organizations. Without a hint of irony, there are ZERO conservative organizations involved to discuss media “diversity.”

The Chairman is Henry Rivera, an unabashed past champion of the “Fairness” Doctrine.

This meeting may very well be the spawning ground for regulatory strategies that could silence conservative talk leaders like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and others.

This meeting is today....notify your elected of the biased board - The Chicago Way=Marxism.

Liberals idea of diversity - A gay activists, a card-carrying NEA member, a black ACLU lawyer, a lesbian, and a far-left Hispanic. In their warped mind, that is America.

At least call your elected about this bogus attempt to silence those that don’t agree with the Progressives/Marxists.

...enhance the participation of minorities and women in telecommunications and related industries

Virtually every kids show on the tube has a 'diverse' mix of children if any live kids are on at all, and sometimes, the cartoons do to. If anything most shows in that venue have 'minority' representation disproportionate to the overall distribution of minorities in our society already.

I would like to see a statistical breakdown, and while they are at it, I'd like to see how many of the GLBT crowd are on the tube as well. After all, if they want to be a 'protected' minority, let's see some stats on who is what.

This meeting may very well be the spawning ground for regulatory strategies that could silence conservative talk leaders like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and others.

They might move them off the mainstream airwaves, but silence them? I doubt it. Time to dust off the shortwave set...

While channel-surfing recently, I stopped for a moment on a show featuring two lesbian roommates. As I watched them, I began pondering the question of the growing impact of homosexuals and radical feminists on our culture.

None of these thoughts are original to me and all have been written about and discussed ad nauseam. This little rant is really an exercise in catharsis.

At the individual level, I have personally known a few homosexuals and, in general, have found them to be quiet, respectful and intelligent. There are exceptions – such as the moron homo cited below — but I haven’t personally met them and probably won’t.

Having said that, I fear that the homosexual – and the recent politically correct fervor to further legitimize that lifestyle – has done irreparable harm to our NATIONAL life and what remains of what many of us still call Western European Culture. When that impact is coupled with the rise of radical feminism, the product is a result from which the West may never recover.

Allow me to explain:

The simple physiological fact is that homosexuals CANNOT reproduce. The current population replacement rate – the rate necessary to maintain the current native born population level — for the United States is somewhere north of 2 children per couple. Homosexuals don’t HAVE kids. Add the radical feminist impact – which holds that motherhood is some form of slavery and has driven many women to seek “fulfillment” OUTSIDE the home — and the current birth rate here is disturbingly FAR BELOW 2.1 per couple.

The other side of the demographic coin is that the virtually unrestrained immigration policies of past administrations have brought a huge influx of people from cultures radically different from that which existed here prior to the advent of PC, diversity, tolerance and all the other names by which many now call these self, nation and culture destroying behaviors. Add the millions and millions of illegals who are now placing such a physical and economic burden on the healthcare and school systems that natural born citizens are being taxed to death and/or cannot, themselves, get the services to which they would otherwise be entitled and it’s a recipe for chaos. And the politicians – who hope these new welfare recipients will support their perpetual reelection — turn a blind eye.

The effect of these factors is that the America in which many of us older folks grew up is disappearing at an alarming rate. As the nation many of us came to love – and donned uniforms to defend – drifts toward some sort of Balkanized
Despotism, large segments of these new arrivals – who know little and care less of the traditions, values and history of this place and even refuse to learn the common tongue — separate themselves into ghetto-like enclaves where outsiders are often not welcomed unless they’re spending money. We run the very serious risk of repeating the experiences of the former Yugoslavia from which some of my people came.

Speaking of whom, my great-great grandparents waited for years then stood in long lines at Ellis Island to be deloused, interrogated and told they had to learn English and our history and traditions and pass a test – something the Hispanics and radical Muslim terrorists strolling across the border with Mexico don’ t have to do.

The Clinton administration – well known for its tolerance of the gay lifestyle – published some statistics in connection with AIDS that startled many. Of course, the PC then rearing its ugly head prohibited all but the brave from commenting on any of that.

The CDC statistics showed that 85% of all AIDS/HIV cases are
1. Active, non-monogamous homosexuals,
(the largest subset)
2. Heterosexuals and bisexuals who have had sex with group 1 and
3. IV drug abusers who share needles.
(Kinda gives new meaning to Romans 6:23, doesn’t it?)
The remaining 15% are those who have contracted AIDS via other,
non-sexual/non-drug means SUCH AS TRANSFUSIONS OF TAINTED BLOOD (which one homosexual “leader” on the West Coast URGED his fellow homosexuals to CONTINUE to attempt to contaminate in order to involve the straight community in the push to increase federal funding for AIDS research).

So, with the population replacement rate practically down to zero, we have the “leaders” of the homosexual community – who can do nothing to help raise that rate – encouraging their members to make ill or kill those of us who have and/or are having and raising kids here.

I find it fascinating that many members of the homosexual community and the radical feminists are on the front line of the assault on traditional values and seek to replace them with more tolerance, diversity and other politically correct nonsense. They have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.

While their activities have produced short-term benefits for them, that diversity, tolerance and egalitarianism have also opened the door to the idea that no culture is “better” than any other. Obama – apparently having confused Chicago with America — spent days recently apologizing to everyone he met for our defective, decadent and corrupt culture.

And that has brought to our shores a formerly foreign culture, the more radical elements of which are breeding at a rate well in excess of the rate among the indigenous population.

And, just as it already has in Great Britain and continental Europe, with those increasing numbers will come increased political and social power.

And with that will surely come a foreign theology and law system.


The bottom line, gays and ladies? Keep on keeping on and you are sure to
1. fall under the headsman’s sword or
2. wind up staying in the house unless your man wants to take you somewhere, but only if you are garbed from head to toe. Did I mention that a man can probably rape and/or kill you and suffer no penalty?

So there you have it.

I’d urge you to think about these things while there MIGHT still be time to alter course.

PS: I had to get this out of my system BEFORE the new, improved congress passes the pending legislation making it a crime to post ANYTHING on the web that could in any way cause ANYONE emotional distress. Would it matter that it was factual? Nope! While it’s probable that the Supremes will rule it a violation of the First Amendment, I’d rather not squander my kids’ small inheritance on lawyers bringing the case.

The last line saying the meeting is open to the public is the biggest lie. There may be outsiders in the room (probably filled with the friends and family type outsiders), but there will not likely be any open discussion.

Diversity for this group is anybody but conservatives, white men, Catholics, Jews, heterosexuals, and achievers. The choices for diversity should be among the best qualified — end of story.
