Ah, the Good, Old Days of Tass! Revived for YOUR “Education” and Mind Control

…by your friendly, national Obama administration.

(ths note: I see I got my post w/ the same article, but different emphasis, up after Bingley’s in the one immediately below. We must both be pissed.)

New Obama initiative tramples First Amendment protections

This has never been put to an FCC vote, it was just announced,” says Ajit Pai, one of the FCC’s five commissioners (and one of its two Republicans).

“I’ve never had any input into the process,” adds Pai, who brought the story to the public’s attention in a Wall Street Journal column last week.

…The study identified eight “critical needs”: information about emergencies and risks; health and welfare; education; transportation; economic opportunities; the environment; civic information; and political information.

It’s not difficult to see those topics quickly becoming vehicles for political intimidation. In fact, it’s difficult to imagine that they wouldn’t. For example, might the FCC standards that journalists must meet on the environment look something like the Obama administration’s environmental agenda? Might standards on economic opportunity resemble the president’s inequality agenda? The same could hold true for the categories of health and welfare and “civic information” — and pretty much everything else.

An enterprising regulator could run wild with a lot of these topics,” says Pai. “The implicit message to the newsroom is they need to start covering these eight categories in a certain way or otherwise the FCC will go after them.

Where’s those Pussy Riot girls when you need someone with a pair?

  1. Late in life, my mother found an acquaintance to visit the duck pond with and go mall walking. She was originally from Austria and she told my mother that as children, the family was locked in desperate poverty and hunger. When Hitler came along, there suddenly was food and heating material and her mother was publicly honored for having her sons join the military. That’s how to enlist loyalty and gain a majority. Do it big enough and long enough and then a gov’t can do anything without criticism or resistance.

    Cripes Suzette: Good story, I’ve never seen comments by you before.But, I’m kinda an outsider on this site.Good people; I keep coming back like a boomerang.
    In my opinion, we are witnessing a collapse of a nation greater than Hitler’s Europe at it’s apex.And it’s for the same reasons. The leaders get into power by saying what the public wants done, and then does things the public doesn’t want done, after assuming power.
