Elitist Demoncrat Sen. Jay Rockefeller Wants to Discard the First Amendment

Real Clear Politics has a video up (here) of Sen. Jay Rockefeller saying:

"There's a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to FOX and to MSNBC: 'Out. Off. End. Goodbye.' It would be a big favor to political discourse; to our ability to do our work here in Congress; and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and more importantly, in their future."

HEY JAY, ONE BIG FAT ROADBLOCK FOR YOU. IT'S CALLED THE FIRST AMENDMENT TO OUR FEDERAL CONSTITUTION, YEAH, THAT THING YOU SWORE TO UPHOLD AND DEFEND. SINCE YOU'VE OBVIOUSLY FORGOTTEN WHAT IT SAYS, I'LL REMIND YOU, EMPHASIZING IN PERTINENT PART WITH BOLD TEXT SO THAT YOUR APPARENTLY DAMAGED BRAIN CAN GRASP WHY YOU CAN'T SILENCE FOX NEWS OR MSNBC.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
UPDATE:

Weasel Zippers has a similar post up here:

  1. What he really meant to say...

    "There's a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to FOX and to MSNBC: 'Out. Off. End. Goodbye.' It would be a big favor to political censorship; to our ability to make money here in Congress; and to screw over the American people, to be able to be destroy the republic and for the rubes to have no idea what their government is doing to the Constitution and more importantly, in their future."

  3. Somebody should have told this lib genius that beside the appalling Constitutional implications here, cable networks are not "on the air", duh!

    The FCC has no jurisdiction over cable programming, although not for lack of trying... maybe he just can blame his ignorance on some staffer.

    Either that or he is stupid, bought and paid for by the Hungarian God Father. I bet on the being bought.
