The Fascist Doctrine

I'm reading the comments on the "fairness doctrine" posted by left-progressives on sites like Crooks and Liars and Common Dreams. See here for one such thread.

I don't think I've found a single advocate for free speech among the "progressive" Brownshirts. Not one. I'm honestly surprised, and am really hoping that I overlooked some comment somewhere, because that is just plain scary. Left-liberals are not only militant enemies of free speech, but proud of it, so long as the censored speech is conservative. They're doing the same things conservatives did over the years, by calling for anti-Bush journalists to be censored, imprisoned, or sometimes outright executed.

While the left-liberals are indeed ending the First Amendment as we know it, conservatives should stop acting surprised. Conservatives have spent years and years advocating and implementing total government control over everyone and everything, while others warned that their enemies would one day be pulling the levers of the state. Conservatives refused to listen, and continued to advocate massive, brutal state power. It might be coming back to bite them on the ass.
