During the Bush administration, national Democrat leaders threatened to kill the ABC network’s broadcast license if a miniseries unfavorable to the Clinton administration wasn’t censored to satisfy Democrats. ABC complied.
Earlier this year, Democrats started a push for a Constitutional Amendment to gut (literally) the First Amendment. Over the weekend, Democrats launched a campaign to get — in their own words — “Rush Limbaugh off the air.”
The petition to get Limbaugh off the air comes straight from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in the form of a fundraising/petition email. The idea is to use the muscle of the petition to in turn muscle Limbaugh’s advertisers to drop him. The phony outrage is manifested from a toxic stew of lies crafted by the DCCC and (naturally) Sandra Fluke that take Limbaugh’s recent comments about sexual assault way, way, way out of context.
