Democrats Begin Silencing Opposition Campaign

Up until 1987, the Fairness Doctrine mandated that when a broadcast station presented one viewpoint on a "controversial" public issue, it also had to air the opposing viewpoint. Sounds "fair," right?


WRONG. The so-called "Fairness Doctrine" did nothing but stifle any real public debate on the airwaves. What station manager in his right mind would air a (profitable) conservative talk radio show for two or three hours every day, if it meant he had to also air liberal shows as well -- shows that have consistently LOST money whenever they've been tried?


Repealed by an FCC vote of 4-0, it was concluded that the "Fairness Doctrine" had begun to inhibit political discourse, rather than enhance it.


The Democrats in Congress tried to reinstate the doctrine, but President Reagan vetoed their attempt. Again, in 1991, another attempt to revive the doctrine failed when President George H. W. Bush threatened a veto.


Now, with Barack Obama in the White House, and with liberal Democrats Senator Harry Reid and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi reigning over a Democrat-controlled Congress, they're already talking about trying to SILENCE TALK RADIO AGAIN -- and this time, they just might succeed... unless YOU AND I take action to stop them NOW, before they are able to mobilize liberal support for this insidious attempt to SILENCE CONSERVATIVES!


Nothing frightens those who peddle lies more than the cold hard light of TRUTH. They react to exposure of their deceits the way vampires react to a crucifix held up in front of them.


Ever since the birth of conservative talk radio and the Internet ended the liberals' total monopoly over the news, the left has been simmering with rage -- because of the loss of their absolute control over what Americans are allowed to see and hear, and the Left's inability to do anything about it!


Time and time again, liberal attempts to sell the nation their shoddy goods have been frustrated when talk-radio hosts have taken to the airwaves and warned their millions of listeners that they were about to be taken to the cleaners.


It wasn't until the McCain/Kennedy fatally flawed "immigration reform" (AMNESTY) bill -- that seemed destined for passage -- was derailed by an army of angry voters recruited by talk radio hosts and conservative Internet websites, that the left understood both the incredible power of the "new media", and their utter helplessness in the face of it.


Clearly, the Left felt that something had do be done. And that's when they came up with the idea to bring back the "Fairness Doctrine" -- but this time, as a LAW.


Really, what they're trying to do shows just how desperate the liberals have become. Without conservative talk radio, and conservative internet websites, to keep an eye on them, the Left's failure to accomplish their stated goals since winning control of the Congress would have been covered up by the liberal controlled "mainstream media."


Conservative voices on talk radio and the Internet are the left's worst nightmare -- their monitoring of the liberals' activities have been shining the light of truth on the Left's attempts to deceive the nation, so now the Left is trying to do whatever it takes to silence any opposition to the Obama agenda!


Like all Marxists, the liberals won't stop trying to LIE their way into power. As a result, they won't stop trying to destroy conservative talk radio, conservative internet sites, and groups like The United States Justice Foundation (USJF) -- those of us who are more than willing to ACTIVATE the grassroots to help EXPOSE the Left's lies. You can be certain that they'll push HARD for a new "Fairness Doctrine" or for some other way to silence the voices of common sense and truth in America.


But you can be just as certain that we will NOT let them succeed!


As grassroots conservatives, we MUST take action to stop them NOW, before they are able to mobilize liberal support for this insidious attempt to SILENCE CONSERVATIVES!

The Fairness Doctrine.


The "Fairness Doctrine" -- a federal regulation requiring broadcasters to present both sides of any "controversial" issue -- was enforced by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) from 1949 to 1987. The FCC adopted it as a regulation, but it was never a law enacted by Congress.


When the rule was in place, radio and TV stations could face huge fines if their stations aired controversial statements on public affairs without providing "equal time" to opposing viewpoints. The result was self-censorship by broadcasters who avoided politics to escape any potential government retaliation.


When this rule was dropped in 1987, under President Ronald Reagan, it led directly to the rise of conservative talk radio that enabled average citizens to have their voices heard across America. If it weren't for the Reagan administration dropping the "Fairness Doctrine," we would never have heard of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glen Beck, Michael Savage, Michael Reagan, Janet Folger, or the hundreds of other conservative talk radio hosts that dot the land and expose the lies and misdeeds of the Left.


And THAT is why Barack Obama and his left-wing friends want to bring back the "Fairness Doctrine" -- this time, as a LAW. Because, if they can get it passed as a LAW, they can silence one of our biggest means of responding to their attacks, and disproving their LIES!
