takes another step toward censorship and restriction of speech.

That's exactly what this is; people should be very, very worried.

“They will shut down Talk Radio in the name of Free Speech..............”

That is a fact. I’m willing to bet on it. We will look back on this as the golden age of talk radio. The left is completely aware that it’s tough to drive the sheeple with conservative outlets stirring things up.

It won’t be overnight, but you will see more and more pressure on conservative talk, “fairness”, attempts to limit speech, fines, and required liberal shows for “balance”.

FOX is a goner. Don’t count on Fox to expose anything but, Megyn Kelly’s legs or Anna Nicole Smith’s last centerfold. They are for all intents and purposes a garbage network (with the exception of Cavuto and Hume—its a waste of time.) Haven’t you noticed since the Elections the leftward slide? They won’t go after Sharpton, or he won’t appear on their shows—they understand ratings. They have learned how to game the base...

So, Sharpton is going to crack down on all those rappers degrading black women and promoting violence?

No, that would be considered "cultural", art and free speech. Rush, Hannity, Levin, etc.....now that's "hate speech" where the left is concerned.

The SCOTUS has ruled, apparently, that the US airwaves are the plaything of the Congress, and as such can restrict their use to whatever suits their whim......

You bet they are; last night, Keith Olbermann held up pictures of Rush, Boortz, Savage, Beck, and a few others and said to Jesse Jackson, “What about these people; don’t you need to go after them, too?”

Glenn Beck asked him this question. After numerous attempts to avoid the question, he pretty much said it was the record company’s fault, not the rappers.

Don’t worry about the divisions on Free Republic.

This is the web site that chose Alan Keyes to be the nominee in 2000! They’re still smarting from that little debacle. Keyes never got into double digits nationally, as I recall.

Also, this is the forum where management and other freepers called Bush a cokehead. As you can see, their political judgment is far from sound. It’s pretty whacked at times and thankfully doesn’t represent the voting public.

They will shut down Talk Radio in the name of Free Speech..............

If and when this is done, it will not be done via boycotts. Rush, Hannity, et. al, are pretty well invulnerable from the usual gang of country clubbers, left wing educators, and race hustlers who are in the process of eliminating Don Imus. Imus is basically a liberal who is largely dependent upon his CBS and MSNBC network connections to stay alive. Like the Seinfeld actor Michael Richards, he is entirely a creature of the MSM and can be pulled down at will. The conservative talkers are dependent on hundreds of AM talk stations that depend on advertisers like car dealers and mortgage brokers whose audience of conservative white males would disappear overnight if there were a purge of conservatives from their stations.

What will do in conservative talk radio is a revival of the "Fairness Doctrine" that the LBJ Administration used to shut down 1960s era conservatives. I could easily see it reinstituted by a Democrat Congress with the blessing of a White House occupied by the likes of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Edwards, Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, or John McCain.

They might not be using racist language, but many of them have been called racists (most recently Bill O’Reilly because of his strong anti-illegal immigration stance), and they just might try to get the off the air because of that. For the left, if you don’t think exactly like they do, you’re a bigot, racist, or guilty of hate talk.

The only problem with this “dialogue”, as Sharpton says, is that he just killed the only show that would give him the platform lol.

Exactly! Even I know that Imus' show is the ONLY one on MSNBC that brings in any money; his ratings are bigger than every other show on MSNBC combined.

And now Jesse is going to go to NBC and demand that a black guy gets that timeslot.

I thought so. It’s the beginning of an assault on conservative speech. They want to suppress all conservative speech. Rush and Savage are their targets.
How about we apply the same rules to all? Then the race-hustlers would be silenced.

Maybe it’s time for the Tawana story to be re-told on a national scale to those who may not be aware of that whole scam. At the time, it was pretty much a NY story. Now that he has national recognition maybe we should re-hash the details and try to chip away at his credibility (not that he ever should have had any after that debacle).

“Imus knows he’s a goner at CBS.”

I think you’re right, and Imus must really feel good about his ineffectual groveling before Sharpton. Hence his comment about taking his suspension ‘with dignity’, of which he has absolutely none. He’ll long regret not having gone down swinging.

"The division I see here on FR between conservatives has me worried."

Yes, and it's been going on for awhile now, even in the 2006 elections. The divide and conquer techniques did wonders for the 'Rats in '06. But even that could not have succeeded without the loss of backbone among those who did get reelected. And, although this is going to probably draw some flames--it goes all the way to the White House.

Howard Stern was right. Imus apologized like it was his first radio gig. He should have told Sharpton to go F himself.

Imus goes on Sharpton’s show and makes big news, gets further embarassed, and pushes the story to the top story on the news (#1 mistake in PR damage control). And he still gets canned.

The hypocrisy of all of this is mind-boggling. Here are the lyrics to the 2005 Academy Award [and also Golden Globe] winning song, “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” from the film “Hustle and Flow:”

Chorus 2X: Shug - singing] + (Djay)

You know it’s hard out here for a pimp (you ain’t knowin)

When he tryin to get this money for the rent (you ain’t knowin)

For the Cadillacs and gas money spent (you ain’t knowin)

[1] Because a whole lot of bitches talkin shit (you ain’t knowin)

[2] Will have a whole lot of bitches talkin shit (you ain’t knowin)

[Djay]

In my eyes I done seen some crazy thangs in the streets

Gotta couple hoes workin on the changes for me

But I gotta keep my game tight like Kobe on game night

Like takin from a ho don’t know no better, I know that ain’t right

Done seen people killed, done seen people deal

Done seen people live in poverty with no meals

It’s fucked up where I live, but that’s just how it is

It might be new to you, but it’s been like this for years

It’s blood sweat and tears when it come down to this shit

I’m tryin to get rich ‘fore I leave up out this bitch

I’m tryin to have thangs but it’s hard fo’ a pimp

But I’m prayin and I’m hopin to God I don’t slip, yeah

[Djay]

Man it seems like I’m duckin dodgin bullets everyday

Niggaz hatin on me cause I got, hoes on the tray

But I gotta stay paid, gotta stay above water

Couldn’t keep up with my hoes, that’s when shit got harder

North Memphis where I’m from, I’m 7th Street bound

Where niggaz all the time end up lost and never found

Man these girls think we prove thangs, leave a big head

They come hopin every night, they don’t end up bein dead

Wait I got a snow bunny, and a black girl too

You pay the right price and they’ll both do you

That’s the way the game goes, gotta keep it strictly pimpin

Gotta have my hustle tight, makin change off these women, yeah.

The language used by Imus is mainstream. HOORAY FOR HOLLYWOOD.

Scoff if you want, but the First Amendment is pretty much sacrosanct, and even leftis jurors are likely to strike that one do

It's naive to assume that. It is ALL about power. The left has absolutely NO respect for the Constitution. The leftists sole goal is to bring about a totalitarian directorship. It is an insult to Liberty loving people everywhere to say the First Amendment is sacrosanct to the left.

I say pull it down, tear the system down, help the Rev's destroy all of talk radio and then follow them on their next crusade and the one after that until there are no more crusades...pull a John Galt, help them wreck everything then be prepared to step in and pick up the pieces to rebuild.

The Rev's are not going to stop until they have wrecked this country, reformed it into their perverse image and in the process America will be swept away.

Watch that race pimp push this for all its worth. God I hope this backfires on his sorry ass. Maybe the media could compare how much Imus raised for charity vs Sharpton or look at Al's prior comments.

Al Sharpton

"..Crown Heights Riot

..Sharpton became the de-facto representative for the Cato family. During the funeral he referred to "diamond merchants" considered a code word for Hasidic Jews [10] [11], for shedding "the blood of innocent babies" leading marchers shouting "No Justice No Peace". Sharpton did not start the riots but his rhetoric was seen as inflammatory and unhelpful in easing the tension between the black and Jewish communities. A visiting rabbinical student from Australia by the name of Yankel Rosenbaum, 29 years old, was killed during the rioting by a mob shouting "Kill the Jew". [12].."
