In liberal land, also known as Los Angeles, it should be no shock that the City Council wants to repeal the First Amendment. After all, they are a bunch of liberal hacks and they cannot stand the idea that someone disagrees with them. The LA city council would do so well in the kind of socialist dictatorship they seem to prefer.
What has happened now?
From Los Angeles CBS:
City Council members took a step closer on Wednesday to becoming the first in the nation to adopt a resolution condemning certain types of speech on public airwaves.
Councilmember Jan Perry introduced legislation that would call upon media companies to ensure “on-air hosts do not use and promote racist and sexist slurs” on radio and other broadcasts.
Members of Black Media Alliance, National Hispanic Media Coalition, Korean-American Bar Association, American Indians in Film and Television were on hand to voice their support for the proposal.
The resolution — which was also supported by Councilmember Bernard Parks and Council President Herb Wesson — called attention to the recent uproar over comments by KFI 640 AM talk show hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou.
Kobylt and Chiampou were suspended after they called the late pop singer Whitney Houston a “crack ho” three days after her death in February.
The proposal cites a “long history of racially offensive comments as well as deplorable sexist remarks, particularly towards women and Black, Latino, and Asian communities” at KFI 640 and calls for parent company Clear Channel Communications to hire a more diverse workforce to offset the trend.
I have one brief message for the Los Angeles city council and my message is protected by the First Amendment.
The Whitney Houston incident is simply a pretext. They do not want diversity. In fact, they want just the opposite. They want conservatives silenced.
The Los Angeles city council’s idea of deplorable comments is conservative speech. They do not like people pointing out that socialism sucks.
I have a better idea. Instead of a resolution repealing the First Amendment, why don’t you clowns on the LA city council resign? You are not public servants. You are a disgrace. You are a disgrace to America.
Since one third of LA students drop out, perhaps you Bozos could join them in a remedial civics class that would start with an explanation of the First Amendment and freedom of speech.
In the meanwhile, hopefully Clear Channel will tell the LA city council to go to hell and how to get there.
I worked in San Francisco for one summer as a student missionary. Although I thought, and still think, that California is beautiful, its inhabitants are very, very different from the majority of the country. California needs to be its own country, completely separate from the rest of the U.S.
If CA is its own country, sooner or later we will have to have the border patrol patrolling the border between CA and Arizona, Nevada, and Oregon. However, this time it will be the whites trying to sneak into the US.
Where are all of these so called protectors of speech on Bill Maher as he bashes Conservative woman on a daily basis and earns millions of bucks doing so?
Good luck trying to get them recalled.. The entire LA area is filled with illegals...
They have marches all the time, dressed in red, shouting Socialism.. This is the illegals...
We left the state last July...Could not take it anymore.
Just yesterday I read that a Chicago policeman told local TV reporters and cameramen that their First Amendment rights could be terminated. To prove his point, he arrested them. Now the LA city groungemen.groungewomen want to limit free speech on the radio and other media. These people condemn freedom of the press and freedom of speech because it disagrees with their political agenda.
How can they reconcile this with their support of a crucifix in urine as art? Or how about manure on Mary the Madonna. They classify that as art, too.
But the real question is will they require that Bill Maher's program can not be aired in Los Angeles? When he calls Republican women c**t, b**ch, and wh*re, will that trigger their outrage so that they enforce their act against him and his program? I know he is on cable, but the spirit of the law should deny Los Angelans acces to Maher's show.
HooYaaa!!!!! Well said, Judson. The land of fruits and nuts needs to be condemned as a health hazard.
California is no longer a State in the Union anyway so there is no free speech amendment to defend. OB got it wrong... there aren't 57 states, there's only 49. ;)
A Chicago policeman tells a reporter he can terminate his First Amendment rights, now LA wants to muzzle conservative talk show hosts. There is an uncomfortable undercurrent in the country that is hitting us from all directions.
Blocking First Amendment rights, deny US citizens due process. President can assassinate US citizens, unconstitutional mandates on religion, unlawful gun running, giving weapons and immunity to the Sinaloa drug cartel, DOD says they can bypass Congress and follow UN orders, Tea Party PACs being targeted by the IRS, gov't suing states for Voter ID and immigration laws.
And that's just some of the unconstitutional actions by our government.
We have to elect a true, God-fearing, Patriot to lead our country out of this abyss.
You better get down on your knees and pray we have an election this year.. With the rush rush that
is going on, I'm getting afraid...Seems the UN is pushing UN Agenda 21 pretty fast.
Our Republicans in office, except for just a couple have been busy little ants working hand in hand with the Liberal Progressives, crafting our new bed of Communism. Impeachment is the farthest thing from their minds; they're preparing to declare victory. We need to get off our asses and put real political pressure on them. I'de like to see a new wave of McCarthysm myself
Can we give california back to Mexico?
The whole purpose of the first amendment of the Bill of Rights is to guarantee Free Speech on all opinions, nice, and not so nice, . If someone considers free speech offensive they have the right to voice their opinion but not to deny someone their rights. All California needs now is to elect the Castro brothers to run that state and they will enjoy the Communism that they so dearly crave. Its not all the politicians fault. The people of California are largely a bunch of illegal Mexicans, far left freaks, welfare cases, and mentally sick people that elect the wacko politicians that write these laws. I wish that California would become a separate country so they would not have to concern themselves with the Bill of Rights. Far left New York state is no where near as bad as California but Massachusetts is equally as bad. Most of the people who live in Mass are communists.
