Saul Alinsky said in his book:
“The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away. In this book we are concerned with how to create mass organizations to seize power and give it to the people. This means revolution.”
Know your enemy, know his philosophy, know his goals, know his tactics.
Consider that the First Amendment was specifically written to protect POLITICAL free speech. It is unclear how a couple of radio channels in our saturated markets manages to squelch others free speech. With the numbers of channels, anybody who can draw an audience, and that’s key – ‘draw an audience’, can get a show on the radio.
From CNS News the new assault on free speech and talk radio:
Mark Lloyd, chief diversity officer of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), called for a “confrontational movement” to combat what he claimed was control of the media by international corporations and to re-establish the regulatory power of government through robust public broadcasting and a more powerful FCC.
Lloyd expressed his regulatory call to arms in his 2006 book, “Prologue to a Farce: Communications and Democracy in America” (University of Illinois Press).
In the book, Lloyd also said that public broadcasting should be funded through new license fees charged to the nation’s private radio and television broadcasters, and that new regulatory fees should be used to fund eight new regional FCC offices.
These offices would be responsible for monitoring political advertising and commentary, children’s educational programs, number of commercials, and content ratings of the programs.
Frequently referencing one of his heroes, left-wing activist Saul Alinsky, Lloyd claims in his book that the history of American communications policy has been one of continued corporate control of every form of communication from the telegraph to the Internet.
And there is this gem of a quote from Lloyd:
“It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press,” he said. “This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies.”
You got that America? The new diversity czar of Obama’s to the FCC, thinks your first amendment rights must be ‘run through government censors’ first.
