How Democrats Practice that "free flow of information" they preach
One Angry Christian

There's a lot of ironic content in this article I just read, but one part really caught my attention.

It was after the speech that I shook his hand. Ian and I spent a few minutes chatting with a couple of conservatives who also survived the speech, and then proceeded to get out of the building. Who was standing atop the stairs, talking with students before heading out to the street? Why, Terry Mac himself. So I got his attention, called him a “good sport” and shook his hand. He told us he’d have to sue the school if I post the video, which really isn’t my problem but word given, the video (which isn’t all that exciting anyway) stays offline. Then he went one way and we went the other. Down the hall a ways, he called out “It’ll be an interesting 2008!”
Emphasis mine obviously, but that should stick out like a sore thumb. Bryan at calls the article "Terry McAuliffe: Chavez is Bush’s fault". He really should have called it "Terry McAuliffe: Screw freedom of information". The case can be made that his words were posted, but the information is stripped of the context of his demeanor, the attitude of the predominantly liberal crowd, and the way he treated those posing questions.

While that might seem trivial it's beneficial to remember that if this guy were a Republican and he threatened to sue someone over posting video of him on the internet it would be front page news. What's even more ironic is that I've googled the topic, and I can't find one instance of a Republican threatening to sue someone for simply posting video of a speech he or she gave.

I do, however, remember how the Dems used veiled threats to pull the broadcast license of someone else who wanted to air something that would make them look bad, or at least put the situation in a context other than what they had presented it as. I guess they couldn't get Sandy Berger on the video cutting room floor to destroy the evidence.

Next time some Dem tries to tell you how the Republicans hide stuff from you keep in mind that we weren't the ones shredding documents that would have shed more light on the "path to 9\11".

Only a Democrat would censor "The path to 9-11" as right wing propaganda dangerous to America, and call Michael Moore's out right lies "free expression that benefits the discussion". This mentality betrays the mentality that has over taken the far left in American where in the Truth becomes inconvenient and therefore traded off for whatever intellectually deluded concoction can gain traction in the popular culture and put the far left in power.

Power to the people in deed.
