Fascists: The Democrats on the Federal Election Commission on Friday called for the heavy regulation of speech on the internet.

In a surprise move late Friday, a key Democrat on the Federal Election Commission called for burdensome new rules on Internet-based campaigning, prompting the Republican chairman to warn that the Left wants to regulate conservative political sites and even news outlets like the Drudge Report.

Democratic FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel announced plans to begin the process to win regulations on Internet-based campaigns and videos, currently free from most of the FEC’s rules. “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long over due,” she said.

And if you vote for these thugs, you identify yourself as someone supporting fascism.

    Reminds me of thousands of Red Chinese trolls whose job is to police the Internet and stiffle anything objectionable to the Communist masters.

    I can top that insanity with the apex in liberal / socialist counter think and conclusion:

    And you thought self hating Jews were counter intuitive, the Danes are apparently brain dead.

    Of course they have to regulate the Internet because clicking another link or typing a URL to content more to your liking is just too darn hard. The crux of the problem is that they just can’take stand that someone else has the freedom to put up content or view content of their choosing on a truly infinite medium. In a medium where bandwidth puts physical limits on who and how much information can be exchanged, perhaps some regulation on makes sense. But the Internet is truly free of such limitations. Got something to say or share? Put it on the Internet. Regulating content in the proposed manner just doesn’the make sense, except of course, to a fascist.
