Ministry of Truth,

by John Griffing - October 8th, 2009 - American Thinker

President Obama has been agitating for the authority to criminalize political opponents since he took office. First there was the raft of DHS reports profiling conservatives as terrorists. Then came the push for a new fairness doctrine, subsequently refined to be achieved in diversity regulations to be imposed on local radio stations. Following these attacks on free speech was the much debated hate crimes legislation, considered by many to be a back-door path to silencing critics of the administration. But, while dangerous to free speech, none of these draconian policies could do as much damage as new regulatory czar Cass Sunstein's shocking proposal to ban "falsehoods" -- a term left up to the Obama administration to define. If Sunstein succeeds, free speech will be truly dead in America.

What is truly incredible is the number of people who look at these outrageous views by Obama's appointees and react with the sentiment that those who are exposing the outrageous positions are the evil people. "No one can believe that such views are actually true." It is the messenger who is being doubted. They refuse to look at the evidence and simply reject the possibility that Obama is siding with radicals like Sunnstein. With such stupidity, Obama and his regime are rapidly "transforming America", just as Obama promised.
