Subject: RE: BS: More liberal bias in the news
Bobert, my understanding of your post is that you are missing the forest for the tree.   

Fascism/Socialism are both forms of tyranny. They oppress people. Every facsist/socialist state has controlled their economies and controlled speech. Ideas are crushed and those that disagree with the party are illegal. Here we are not just talking about an assualt on human dignity but also policies that by their nature kill people.

Liberal policies ARE socialistic policies. These policies will inevitably by their nature lead to a tyranny. That is the point. You play with dangerous ideas that oppress people. If you think this is just fearmongering than take a look at my previous post and tell me again why government is not the liberals first choice to address what they perceive to be problems?

Let me also ask whether or not you think that political correctness is or is not an attempt to control speech and ideas?
