The Government Is Stifling Free Speech From the Inside Out

I'm going to start with a video. This is a teacher in California. Remember as you watch this, this guy is influencing the youth of America.


This is about global struggle against imperialism and capitalism. But we know that all of that is happening with the context of where we now stand is stolen, occupied Mexico. And the lesson that we bring if you want to bring a little bit more of a revolutionary context to this is, why is it that these people, these frail, racist white people, want to keep us out of this country?


Any guess as to where I saw that video? It's activist teacher Ron Gochez. CNN? Ohhh, sorry. The Shakespearian freak on MSNBC? Ohhh, sorrry. I saw it on YouTube. This one has been out there for a while and just made the rounds on the internet — he's still teaching at the same school. I have a feeling that will change very soon...

A lot of the raw audio of these Marxists and communists running around the White House, were originally posted on YouTube or a blog site. Think of all the information you would be missing out on completely if we didn't have that outlet available. After all, much of the video that took down Van Jones and Anita Dunn, came from the Internet.

The president gave a speech over the weekend, at Hampton University… remember, during the campaign Obama said he was against the Fairness Doctrine. But that's because, as FCC Diversity Czar Mark Lloyd says, the Fairness Doctrine doesn't go far enough. We've told you from the beginning that it was never about fairness. It's about redistribution, power and control.

Here's what the president said:


PRESIDENT OBAMA: You're coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't always rank all that high on the truth meter...With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations, — none of which I know how to work — information becomes a distraction, a diversion…All of this is not only putting new pressures on you, it is putting new pressures on our country and on our democracy… With so many voices clamoring for attention on blogs, on cable, on talk radio, it can be difficult, at times, to sift through it all; to know what to believe; to figure out who's telling the truth and who's not. Let's face it, even some of the craziest claims can quickly gain traction. I've had some experience in that regard...


There's a lot there — what kind of information do you get from your iPod or PlayStation? I don't get that. I've never heard information is a distraction. Information is power. PERIOD.
Now, who is to blame for spreading the rumors '24/7' cable news... 'some' don't rank high on the truth meter. Could he mean — oh that's right, he declared war on the lies coming from Fox News. 'Certain blogs' and 'talk radio outlets.' That's so weird. This network, 'certain' blogs and talk radio outlets are the only media spreading around falsehoods. Everyone else is squeaky clean. What are the odds?

I'm sure this has nothing to do with silencing opponents. He's just callin' 'em like he sees 'em!

Uh huh.

Let's see if we can't spread the horizons of the president this week. I know he encouraged viewers of this program to go out and read the Huffington Post. As we all know the Huffington Post is a straight shooting website — you'll get the truth there. No, seriously, there's Edward R. Murrow, Tim Russert, and of course Arianna Huffington. One in the same.

Just for kicks, I'd like the president to go slumming on the other side of the tracks, and take a look at some of the stories apparently not juicy enough for the mainstream media and yes, the Huffington Post, to cover...Crime Inc.

Lets start with MSNBC and NBC. Those networks are owned by GE. The CEO of GE: Jeffrey Immelt.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't recall the White House declaring war on MSNBC or NBC. I could be waaaaay off base here. But I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that Jeffrey Immelt (the CEO of GE) is also on the president's Economic Recovery Advisory Board.

And maybe — again, call me if I'm off base here — but I've noticed that NBC has a bizarre proclivity for airing 'green weeks.' Al Gore practically takes over the network for days at a time to read poems and make lame jokes whenever he feels the need to preach that humans are melting the earth. Let's watch:

Al Gore on '30 Rock': If we're going to solve the climate crisis, we've got to change more than the light bulbs and the windows. We've got to change the laws and the policies through collective political action on a large scale. You know there's an old African proverb that I made up: If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. We need to go far, quickly.


AL GORE: Global warming deniers persist in this era of unreality. After all, the entire north polar ice cap, which has been there for most of the last 3 million years, is disappearing before our eyes.


Santa is drowning right now. It's sad, kiddies, it's sad. Does anybody have a life preserver? MSNBC not only does a green week thing, which is weird that it's an energy company, and he's in the office with the president. Isn't that weird? They'll even stoop to letting RFK Jr. eat up valuable air time to spew his climate change crap. Why do they go so far out of their way to push the green agenda? Let's ask Joel Rogers — the progressive 'man behind the curtain' of Crime Inc., founder of the Apollo Alliance (which wrote the stimulus package)... and the wizard of emerald cities.


JOEL ROGERS: If you do those six things, i think you will be be well on your way to actually greening the economy. and you will grow the wealth and GE and Cisco and the other people who are announcing great plans... should be relatively happy about that and any environmentalist not concerned about the redistribution of that wealth should be relatively happy too.


Ohhhh. It's about another kind of green... getting rich. Rogers greening group is a coalition of "unions, labor groups, community organizations, social justice advocates, socially responsible businesses, and elected officials."

Wow, that sounds a lot like former advisor to the president Van Jones and his community organization. Who, in a completely unrelated story launched a boycott of this show. Also completely unrelated, SEIU —(Remember, SEIU and the president...he's been working all his life for them!) they organized a boycott of this show too. That's so weird!

This story is so out there I'm almost embarrassed to bring it up — the AFL-CIO also launched an attack on this show!

We are working to counter the Glenn Beck effect and turn anger into action for real change.

There's NBC and the trail of money leading to the green movement. OK, so Mr. President — its not just cable, Internet, radio. We can't get the truth from GE, NBC or MSNBC or the Washington Post. Remember, talk radio, cable and 'some blogs' are causing all the problems. No mention of papers like the Washington Post. I thought the Post was the home of Woodward and Bernstein — have they no interest in looking into Crime Inc.? Nothing bothers them that every single organization and Marxist connection to this White House is not only directly profiteering from legislation, they are engaged in silencing those who speak out against it. That's not a story worth an expose in the Washington Post? Apparently not. But do you know what is?

They were doing video blogs with Jim Wallis. 'Glenn Beck's attack on social justice Christians' ... THIS is what they are spending their time on? There'snothing better? Try writing on author of the article, Jim Wallis, who is one of Obama's religious advisors? And one of his political advisors? Oh yeah, and Wallis social justice group is (say it with me) boycotting my show! So weird! Aw shucks, it's a bummer for me there's so many 'grass roots' efforts to boycott my show! The Washington Post probably doesn't have time to report on real news — they're too busy trying to merge with the Huffington Post.

The Huffington Post, where have I heard that before, oh yeah! That's right. It's the place the president recommends everyone to go for balanced news. Balanced news like this re-post of the Jim Wallis/Washington Post article on me — except their headline read: "Glenn Beck to Jesus: Drop Dead"

Oh. That's the place the president wants my viewers to go for the truth. OK. Well, good luck with that merger. I think the Huffington Oost cost like $56 million. I doubt there's a progressive billionaire out there who'd be willing to dump any money into it, like George Soros, or Tides. or the Joyce Foundation. May I just ask a question to the journalists? Forget that. I've given up on them. Parents and the siblings of journalists —- have you called your relative in the media and asked where the hell are they?

But I digress — who else is on the presidents 'naughty' list... the exciting network funded by your tax dollars: PBS. They just lost their electrifying host, Bill Moyers, to retirement. Now he'll have more time to spend at church. He attends the United Church of Christ (the same denomination as Jeremiah Wright). A church who, happened to petition the FCC to look into 'hate speech' on talk radio. Moyers had recently produced a special for PBS called 'The Net at Risk,' a documentary featuring the Coalition and presented by Free Press, it basically pushed the urgent need for net neutrality. I read about that special on

And tomorrow here in New York — Free Press, a radical leftist group. Their goal is not 'free press' or faster internet speeds. Robert McChesney, founder, wants to destroy capitalism: "Any serious effort to reform the media system would have to necessarily be part of a revolutionary program to overthrow the capitalist political economy."

Also, "There is no real answer, but to remove, brick by brick, the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles."

"We need to do whatever we can to limit capitalist propaganda, regulate it, minimize it, and perhaps even elimnate it"

Free Press wants government to take over the media

Said with no hint of irony in front of the 'Free Press' banner. McChesney also called for the government to bail out and take over the media… in an opinion piece that ran in the…Washington Post.

That group just happens to have one of its former players sitting as the assistant to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski. Weird, because they are for net neutrality... the courts shot that down. Now, the FCC says they'll do it anyway and are marching forward, announcing plans to make Internet companies a public utility. ...

Free Press is having a summit on net neutrality. Among the speakers: The executive producer of PBS's 'Frontline,' a 'journalist' from the Huffington Post, and James Rucker — the current head of Color for Change (Van Jones group). Oh gosh are there any unions involved? They should cover it on GE's NBC then it would be a complete loop.

This is not about free speech... it's about stifling it.
