On Thursday April 19th, Nancy Pelosi “endorsed a movement announced by other congressional Democrats on Wednesday to ratify an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would allow Congress to regulate political speech when it is engaged in by corporations as opposed to individuals
She said that with Citizens United, “the Supreme Court had unleashed a predator that was oozing slime into the political system, and that, indeed, is not an exaggeration.”
The constitutional amendment the Democrats seek would reverse the Supreme Court’s 2010 decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. In that decision the court said that the First Amendment protects a right of free speech for corporations as well as for individuals, and that corporations (including those that produce newspapers, films and books) have a right to speak about politicians and their records just as individuals do. — CNS News
I’m against any alterations to the first amendment. However, congress did pass hate speech legislation and that didn’t seem to alter Pelosi’s rhetoric intended to inflame…excuse me…activate their base. She allows “oozing slime” to escape the confines one side of her mouth while “Astroturf” leaks out the other side. Or is that the other end?
Likewise, the New Black Panther Party has not been convicted, tried, charged, arrested or even questioned over their blatant “kill the white devil” incitement to commit violence hate speech in the George Zimmerman case. I wonder…would the MSM have raised an eyebrow if the New Black Party had said “kill the gay white devil”? I’m guessing that would not fit their narrative, so no raised eyebrow for that one either.
Oh, no matter. The credo of the MSM is, “If it bleeds, it leads”. They might want to add, “And if it doesn’t bleed, incite it to.”
And that, in a nutshell, is why they keep us divided and at each others throats. If they don’t then we might just get along and then where would the politicians, media and the hate-baiters be without the easily manipulated and divided mobs.
