LA Set To Throw First Amendment Away (Update: They Did It.)
Good old “tolerant” lefties want to take away the free speech rights of those that disagree with them… again!
City Council members were one step closer on Wednesday to becoming the first in the nation to adopt a resolution condemning certain types of speech on public airwaves.
Councilmember Jan Perry introduced legislation this week that would call upon media companies to ensure “on-air hosts do not use and promote racist and sexist slurs” on radio and other broadcasts.
Now, I am most definitely not in favor of those who call themselves conservative using any sort of slur in any situation. However, what we have here is yet another example of the continuing double standard of the left.
For example, did the LA City Council castigate the NAACP for their refusal to condemn racist comments about Justice Clarence Thomas?
Did the LA City Council say anything at all about these statements?
Roger Clinton, the President’s brother on audiotape
Some junior high n*gger kicked Steve’s ass while he was trying to help his brothers out; junior high or sophomore in high school. Whatever it was, Steve had the n*gger down. However it was, it was Steve’s fault. He had the n*gger down, he let him up. The n*gger blindsided him.”
Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One according Ronald Kessler’s Book, “Inside The White House”
“I’ll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”
Left-wing radio host Neil Rogers
“Is you their black-haired answer-mammy who be smart? Does they like how you shine their shoes, Condoleezza? Or the way you wash and park the whitey’s cars?”
Harry Truman in a personal letter
“I think one man is just as good as another so long as he’s not a n*gger or a Chinaman. Uncle Will says that the Lord made a White man from dust, a nigger from mud, then He threw up what was left and it came down a Chinaman. He does hate Chinese and Japs. So do I. It is race prejudice, I guess. But I am strongly of the opinion Negroes ought to be in Africa, Yellow men in Asia and White men in Europe and America.”
Why do I hear crickets?
UPDATE: Yep, they went and did it.
The City Council has approved a resolution calling on local TV and radio stations to limit any “racist” and “sexist” comments on their broadcasts.
The City Council voted 13-2 to pass the resolution with a motion urging “the management of radio and television stations in Los Angeles to do everything in their power to ensure that their on-air hosts do not use and promote racist and sexist slurs over public airwaves in the City of Los Angeles”.
How long till someone challenges it on First Amendment grounds?
