Liberty Central seeks to stifle dissenting speech


Chris Matthews went after a movement this past week with his special “The Rise of the New Right”. So, he exercised his first amendment right of “Free Speech”. As a result of his “Free Speech” conservative organizations are exercising theirs in calling for a sponsor boycott of his show.

This is pretty much what happened to Glenn Beck when people who didn’t like something Beck said and then demanded his sponsors stop advertising on his show or they would boycott the sponsors products. The sponsor’s caved, left Beck’s show and his 1-4 million viewers.

The leverage used to hurt someone exercising their “Free Speech” today is to pressure their sponsor, hurt them in their pocketbook. Nice tactic! The problem with this is the unforeseen consequences. One of those consequences is that some people lose their jobs in the course of these events. Not Beck and not Matthews but someone you will never hear about when you’re doing you little boycott victory dance.

Oh and the problem isn’t the attempt to stifle someone else’s “Free Speech” by exercising yours’. The real problem is that you aren’t defending their “Freedom of Speech” and when we stop defending the rights of others who disagree with our point of view we are diminishing our “Free Speech.”

Below is the call to boycott letter posted on Liberty Central.

Yesterday, we wrote about the Chris Matthews/MSNBC smear of the Tea Party movement.

The special, “Rise of the New Right,” ended up being a complete misrepresentation of the Tea Party movement, little more than misleading slander about its motivations and history.

Do you agree that this was nothing more than a hit piece?

If so, join many Tea Party groups in the boycott of one of Hardball’s sponsors, Dawn dish soap and its parent company, Proctor and Gamble. Tell them to cut off funding to MSNBC and stop subsidizing these vicious attacks.

Please call, fax or email Dawn, and its parent company, Proctor and Gamble. The Tea Party coalition promises not to back down, but to keep the pressure on until Dawn cancels its funding for Hardball and MSNBC.
