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 can see you like the first amendment...me too!...but I like civility also. Calling names on either side is abhorrant! One stoops to name calling and cursing when they lack the the ability to express themselves intelligently.
But it is still OK to hurt the white male right? I'll bet it is. No one will care what happens to the white man as long as no blacks or any other race and women don't get hurt. Riiight. SCREW YOU is right Judson. I am so sick of this B.S. Really I am. I refuse to bow to anyone! The only ones I let dictate my life were Mom and Dad..I am glad that I did. Out side of that..NO ONE TELLS ME WHAT TO DO!
