Dems Move Secretly To Regulate Political Speech On The Internet

Be careful what you post on the Internet, if Democrats on the FCC get their way, you may find yourself in a heap of trouble...

(Washington Examiner) In a surprise move late Friday, a key Democrat on the Federal Election Commission called for burdensome new rules on Internet-based campaigning, prompting the Republican chairman to warn that Democrats want to regulate online political sites and even news media like the Drudge Report.

Democratic FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel announced plans to begin the process to win regulations on Internet-based campaigns and videos, currently free from most of the FEC’s rules. “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long over due,” she said.

The power play followed a deadlocked 3-3 vote on whether an Ohio anti-President Obama Internet campaign featuring two videos violated FEC rules when it did not report its finances or offer a disclosure on the ads. The ads were placed for free on YouTube and were not paid advertising.

  1. The left always complain about their free speech rights, yet they are always trying to squash free speech of the opposition. So typical of the Stalinist Maoist mindset. Pol Pot would fit in nicely with the Democrap Party. Very scary them liberals. Hey libs be careful what you ask for.

  2. The Left will do all they can to silent the TRUTH. They are scared that those LOW Information Voters will read comments, and the become enlighten about our Liberal Media, and Politicians, and the FCC does Not want any Truth to come out against those they support.

  3. Dear beloved Demonrats. When we conservatives retake the former USA, and we shall by one means or another, expect the damage inflicted upon this once great nation to be undone. At that time, all involve in the dissolution of America, with be charged with treason and acts of tyranny, including aiding-and-abetting the enemy, foreign and domestic. With punishment metered-out accordingly.

    1. I love this statement. I would have said the same thing.

  4. The democratic party Leftists are no different tha hard line socialists all over the world. They always want to control the habits and speech of others, never their own. You see it everyday in Europe, and the left in the US trying to do it here. We are lucky to have a few watch dogs taking action when they try. But like the Nazis before WW II they will continue until they are successful or they become irrelevant -- it's a toss up right and in the hands of low information voters.

  5. Controlling is the take way of your freedom, liberals may call it regulation of what you put on e-mail, but if you control social media then this is nothing more the Communistic agenda to control your speech.

  6. The Dems once again prove themselves to be the Anti-American Swine they actually are. Oink!Oink!, Swine!

  7. the left have already taken over one/sixth of the economy with healthcare using the irs as the enforcer, they have turned the doj into a race baiting partner of the naacp-pro amnesty zealot-and a non enforcer of government criminal actions by the va and the irs. the government have infused itself into the hearts and minds in the educational system using indoctrination by common core. we now have a government that forces the gay rights over everybody elses rights and beliefs, and now the government goes out of its way to protect and promots islam....while degrading Israel and christains.
