Skip to comments.Krugman: Conservative Views About Debt Ceiling Should Be Censored From News Reports
Posted on 07/27/2011 8:34:35 AM PDT by chessplayer
New York Times columnist Paul Krugman on Tuesday said it was a "moral issue" for the press to censor conservative views about the debt ceiling.
Liberalism is a mental disorder. And always will be.
Amazing is all I can say.
so much for their suppossed support of the “fairness doctrine”
Moral issues, he knows not.
How can anyone in the media call for censorship, ever? More and more the left is showing it’s true colors.
No surprise here. Libs have but two options when they are losing an argument: yell racism (think Tea Party) or advocate censorship.
Oh, well that explains it! I guess it was a “moral issue” for the press to censor Obama’s dubious background.
statist, elitist and collectivist !
“Amazing is all I can say.”
Worse, his calls for censorship in the media will not be challenged by the rest of the msm. Thats how far down the tubes this country has gone.
Krugman needs to be censored.
Just another liberal with knee pads.
Free Speech is permitted with the clause of so long as it agrees with the statist view (leftist & gov’t views).
True colors coming out from our social benefactors.
I think old Krugman has shot past the warning track and crashed through the Left field wall.
With krugman his target is the Conservative movement. For Breivik he's targeting Islam. The other guy is safely in jail and continuing to deteriorate mentally so who knows what he thinks these days.
Breivik will be outta jail for good in 21 years, and out on weekend paroles in a mere 7 years from the time of the first killing!
Krugman is still on the streets, peddling his BS ~ just as dangerous.
The guy has a proven track record, just look at how his advice helped Enron.
Amazing is all I can say.
Worse, his calls for censorship in the media will not be challenged by the rest of the msm. And will not be challenged by non-media libs. Thats how far down the tubes this country has gone.
Krugman, in calling for censorship, is asking for acts of violence to be taken against Conservatives as they exercise their civil liberties.
It is also a moral imperative to censor any opinion that does not support man made global warming.
In summary, any opinion I personally disagree with should be suppressed and the people making such opinions should be rounded up and executed for ‘confusing the masses with Truth’.
I am the only one allowed to express an opinion and my opinion is ‘always’ correct, accurate, and the official ‘truth’.
(this guy would do great in Cuba)
True liberal progressivism means doing whatever is neccessary to further THE agenda. That means that the ends justify all means including trashing the constitution.
You see THEY see things clearly and the rest of us are just ignorant louts who haven’t seen the light.
It all boils down to the rule of law vs the rule of man. They sing the praises of the rule of law when it’s convenient but are willing to cast it aside in the blink of an eye when it’s not.
You left out FASCIST! (mussolini model ie clown)
...and this guy has a Nobel Prize...................
Krugman is an idiot who needs his head examined given he definitely has a mental disorder ... called liberalism/progressivism. =.=
Not good. Buy old books. Pass them on to your kids, or copy and hide them. The thought police are out there.
Many of these people are certifiably “around the bend”.
Eliminating the demand for new taxes was a step in the right direction by the democrats. But the problem is that their current plan still results in huge increases in federal debt and interest payments on debt throughout the rest of this decade. Their plan doesn't do anything serious to solve the debt problem. Krugman apparently doesn't think rapidly expanding federal debt is any kind of problem, even though the bond rating agencies certainly believe it is a serious problem.
The plans offered by the democrats are NOT far to the right of public opinion. I saw a poll in which a strong majority of Americans favored the Cut Cap and Balance plan passed by the House. Entitlement spending has to be reduced in the future, even if liberals like Krugman think we can borrow endlessly to finance those programs. I assure you, we cannot borrow endlessly. The financial markets will certainly stop endless borrowing. If spending and federal deficits are not reduced substantially, then the treasury bond market is only 12-24 months away from a major selloff and a big jump in all interest rates. Isn't Krugman some kind of economist? Why doesn't he understand what is going to happen in the bond market if federal spending isn't cut back? This man is out of touch with reality.
Seriously, these people are a slight nudge away from endorsing workcamps for dissenters.
No wonder the Nazi, Communist, Fascist and Socialist murderers in history never seem to have trouble finding a power base. For now, they can just write down member names from Krugman's blog.
more like a mental defect
So called "tolerant liberals" love nothing better than harsh, ruthless, totalitarian, dictatorial socialist regimes that threaten & treat its' own citizens as the enemy. Any opposing viewpoints to their elitist views will be squashed & violently stamped out. This is the liberals view of society in their New World Order. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Those twin goals are evident in many of their efforts, though the totalitarian aspect is often better disguised.
“Krugman on Tuesday said it was a “moral issue” for the press to censor conservative views about the debt ceiling.”
That “moral Issue” being that it HURTS DEMOCRATS, and that harms gays, of course. That CANNOT be Allowed.....
Welcome to WEIMAR AMERICA, circa 1933 GERMANY....
How many more parallels do you really need?
Liberals actually believe their viewpoint is morally superior and any other perspective is illegitimate. Liberal philosophy goes against the First Amendment.
Power hungry, grasping and dogmatic liberals tolerate no other perspectives than their own.
The liberals’ sense of superiority will goeth before their fall.
Freedom for ME, but not for THEE~!
Welcome to Nazi Germany not too long from now.
No dissenting views. Only one party. Only one Leader. And a final solution to the “conservative” problem.
DO NOT LET THEM TAKE YOUR GUNS WHILE YOU’RE STILL BREATHING!
Krugman is only now being seen as a laughingstock? Whew... Where have people been for the past ten years (at least)?
“..Seriously, these people are a slight nudge away from endorsing workcamps for dissenters...”
This time, it won’t turn out so well for those endorsing it.
The rules have changed. It will mean SERIOUS pain for them.
It must be hard for him to wake up in the morning, go to the mirror, and see anything other than the face of failure.
“The rules have changed. It will mean SERIOUS pain for them.”
Really? They HAVE??
I must assume you are right, since Fast+Furious is leading the morning headlines every day, and the Evening Network News is covering it in detail.
Once again: “READ MY TAGLINE!”
I really wish I had a dollar for everytime I’ve posted that. The Slimes are making me out to be really smart.
Krugman is an idiot and proves Nobel prizes are like Cracker Jack prizes.
“Censorship advocate Paul Krugman...”
Make it a meme.
