Dangerous Words

I came accross this on-line petition which is telling of how badly the liberals have been whipped. Liberals can no longer compete in the arena of competing ideas and are resorting to censorship.

This is how it reads:

"Hate has no place on the airwaves. Recently, the major television networks have given a platform to conservative hate merchants like Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck, and Melanie Morgan.

Coulter's column is distributed by Universal Press Syndicate, one of the country's largest syndicates. Beck was recently hired by CNN Headline News. Morgan broadcasts from a radio station owned by Disney. And all three -- and countless others like them -- are regularly given guest spots on cable-news networks.

The fact that these right-wing pundits -- who have called for the execution of public officials and others -- are given a platform in the major media is unprecedented.

We, the undersigned, urge the media to stop allowing these hate merchants to spread their venom and abuse. America deserves to hear honest, reasoned debate, not rants from professional hatemongers."

Oh really now! So in the name of stopping hate we are going to silence all opinions Media Matters can't find arguments against. I guess the First Amendment doesn't apply to hatemongers.

Maybe if you ask nice, they will add your name to the list.
