Why Are Liberal Democrats So Gung Ho About “Controlling” the Internet?

The Washington Examiner reports that

Claiming that thousands of public comments condemning “dark money” in politics can’t be ignored, the Democrat-chaired Federal Election Commission on Wednesday appeared ready to open the door to new regulations on donors, bloggers and others who use the Internet to influence policy and campaigns.

During a broad FEC hearing to discuss a recent Supreme Court decision that eliminated some donor limits, proponents encouraged the agency to draw up new funding disclosure rules and require even third-party internet-based groups to reveal donors, a move that would extinguish a 2006 decision to keep the agency’s hands off the Internet.

Noting the 32,000 public comments that came into the FEC in advance of the hearing, Democratic Commissioner Ellen L. Weintraub said, “75 percent thought that we need to do more about money in politics, particularly in the area of disclosure. And I think that’s something that we can’t ignore.”

But a former Republican FEC chairman said in his testimony that if the agency moves to regulate the Internet, including news voices like the Drudge Report as GOP commissioners have warned, many thousands more comments will flood in in opposition of regulation.

“If you produce a rule that says we are going to start regulating this stuff, including the internet and so on, I think you will see a lot more than 32,000 comments come in and I don’t think staff will analyze them and find that 75 percent are favorable to more regulation,” said Bradley Smith, now with the Center for Competitive Politics.

Democratic Chairwoman Ann Ravel, who called the hearing, has said she wants to regulate politicking on the Internet, though she has pulled back amid a public outcry, especially among conservatives who see her move as a bid to silence center-right websites and Internet based conservative groups and news sites.

However, two groups, including the League of Women Voters, said they support more disclosure by those who use the Internet to influence campaigns and policy.

It has always amazed me, during the time I spend on the internet, on Political Facebook Pages and Websites, how those who claim to be the most tolerant among us are actually the least tolerant of all.

This congressperson and her dear leader, President Barack Hussein Obama, epitomize Liberals’ intolerance toward those of us who do not share their political ideology.

Both seek to restrict the Internet, as a means of shutting down Americans’ Freedom of Speech.

The reason for that, is simple. Citizen bloggers, such as myself, daily expose the shenanigans and chicanery of an Administration and a political party seemingly bereft of Traditional American Values and Ethics.

For a president and political party, who claimed to be the most transparent public servants whom we have ever seen in national office, they seem overly concerned at the free flow of information about them, that the public not only needs, but deserves to know.

Of course, this reluctancy to allow information to get to the public, is nothing new in the annuls of American politics… or in the political history of President Barack Hussein Obama.

Obama learned to ply his trade in the smoke-filled backrooms of Chicago, Illinois, where shady political deals were made and potential candidates were created.

Obama became president as a result of these backroom dealings and as a result of a restricted flow of information concerning his background, which hampered anyone who wished to vet him as a candidate.

Of course, the fact that both the Chicago and the national news media covered for him by creating fairy tales about how wonderful he was and how the oceans would recede at the wave of his mighty hand and we would all get unicorns in our backyards, had something to do with his election, as well.

But, I digress..

Obama and the Democrats have been trying to regulate the Internet for years now. And, there’s a reason for that.

The cold hard fact of the matter is that Liberalism, like Socialism, is a failed ideology, which took a divergent path from reality, a long time ago.

The only way that Liberals, who actually are still only 23% of America’s population, can maintain any sort of political leverage and power, is by concealing their true intentions through manipulation of the Main Stream Media and by controlling the flow of information, so that the public remains in the dark as to the Machiavellian nature of their true feelings about their relationship with the average American voter.

Obama and the Democratic Party prefer to employ a Mushroom Policy, when it comes to informing the Public as to what they are doing.

They want to keep us in the dark and feed us…well…you know.

Until He Comes,
