Despite Obama’s Opposition, Jim DeMint Planning Legislative Circle Jerk on Fairness Doctrine

425px-Jim_DeMint.jpgApparently for some people, this wasn’t explicit enough.

President Obama opposes any move to bring back the so-called Fairness Doctrine, a spokesman told Wednesday. … "As the president stated during the campaign, he does not believe the Fairness Doctrine should be reinstated," White House spokesman Ben LaBolt told

Liars! Jim DeMint (W-SC) sees right through those sneaky libruls.

Sen. Jim DeMint announced that he will force a vote next week on a bill that prevents the Federal Communications Commission from reinstating the Fairness Doctrine.

Sen. DeMint stated: “I’m glad President Obama finally confirmed his opposition to the Fairness Doctrine, which attacks the right of free speech on talk radio, but many Democrats in Congress are still pushing it.

“With the support of the new administration, now is the time for Congress to take a stand against this kind of censorship. I intend to seek a vote on this amendment next week so every senator is on record: Do you support free speech or do you want to silence voices you disagree with?

Wingnuts do love their false dilemmas, don’t they?

Look, in normal times, using the floor of the Senate to kiss El Rushbo’s boil-laden ass is bad enough. But while the country slides into another Great Depression? It’s criminal.

The Dixiecans, yet again, show us what they really care about.
