Make no mistake about it. Mainstream lefty blogs like Firedoglake are controlled or heavily populated by people who want to overturn Citizens United and give Congress the power to censor (control) corporate political speech.
I wouldn’t mind so much if they were honest about it. But they’re not. They’re spreading all kinds of lies.
The chief lie is that corporations now can give unlimited amounts to political candidates. In fact, a corporation cannot give one cent to a political candidate. That was true for many years before Citizens United, and it’s true today.
What are these folks on the left really up to? For them, the prize is giving a Democratically-controlled Congress the power to censor Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. They’re frustrated and fearful. Bill O’Reilly has a jillion more viewers than, say, Firedoglake. People like Jane Hamsher at FDL cannot abide that. So they’re willing to trash the First Amendment. And Obama is right there with them.
Don’t let ’em get away with it. Call your congress critter or senator today.
