Al Sharpton Helping FCC Design Rush Limbaugh 'Free Speech' Show Trials
American Spectator ^ | 12.20.10 @ 1:15PM | By Seton Motley

Posted on 12/20/2010 11:04:15 AM PST by Behind Liberal Lines

Public hearings would instead be used to drag unfavorables like Rush Limbaugh before the Commission to "explain how they justify" their availing themselves of their First Amendment rights. And to threaten their stations' broadcast licenses should they fail the FCC's definition of "justification."

Rush should ask Al Sharpton and the FCC about what Whoope Goldielocks said on the View today about how white people eat...

I look forward to the day when any person tries to have a show trial and put rush in the docket....let’s see who thinks they can out talk Rush on the issues.

That would be hilarious in the extreme.

Rush should be shouting “oh, don’t throw me in the briar patch!!”

Al Sharpton is NOT part of the FCC and this race baiting hustler should not be calling the shots.

And until the time comes that we fight the left like they fight us, we will continue with this crap.

Just the fact that the FCC would put up with the race pimp's "McCarthyism" is enough to show that the FCC is one of the government agencies that needs to be shut down.

They don't have the gonads to drag Rush before their commission.

They know he would make mince meat of them.

How do white people eat? Who the L ever thought to observe people of different colors to know how they eat?

Chopsticks and silverware are pretty much the only differences I can think of.

The FCC muzzling Rush or any other conservative talk radio show is a definite casus belli for me (yes that kind). I'm just saying.

The GOP in the House should cut the FCC's funding completely, but they won't. These guys aren't going to compromise in the next couple of years, but instead will ratchet things up a couple of notches.

I agree, they’d be making a big mistake if they took on Rush. They probably won’t, but will start with a smaller, weaker target.

The 1st Amendment clearly states they can’t do this, but that won’t stop them.

No ...... sshow trial means they'll need someone less sympathetic, angrier, less articulate, easier to rile and get to blustering and sputtering and spewing.

Fill in the blanks ...... Mark Levin - Mike Savage - Laura Ingraham

Rush would eat them up, and they'd rather kiss a moving band saw than take on Ann Coulter.

Michael Medved and Dennis Miller would out-nice them -- bad, in a show trial; too sympathetic.

There are a total of 1,930 personnel employed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) as of September 2009. The FCC is responsible for regulating interstate and international communications in all 50 US states, the District of Columbia, and US possessions. That is about 1500 too many, defund the rest.

Actually, I’m sure that any show trial will be orchestrated to make anyone look bad. They might not Rush even speak beyond yes or no answers.

McCarthy was right about Communists infiltrating the Hollywood system, academia, and our military and State department.

Rush is not violating anyone’s rights.

Call it Stalinism, not neo-McCarthyism.

A chill wind blows.

If that day comes and Al takes on Rush, Al better have a big breakfast ‘cause Rush will eat his lunch.

Sharpton better be careful what he wishes for. He’s made some very ugly, racially incendiary statements over the years. Get Rush anywhere near a hearing room, and he would shred Al like Vai on an Ibanez.

Sharpeton won’t be doing diddly if the Rio Linda town council gets a hold of Rush first.

She said something about how white people eat... and after she said it, she knew she was going to be in a lot of trouble for saying by the look on her face... I didn’t catch all what she said.
