CNSNews has a long-standing admiration for Nancy Pelosi, dating back to asking if ObamaCare is Constitutional.
Now, CNSNews reports the Wicked Witch of the West seeks to revive the Sedition Act, in spirit, if not in practice.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday endorsed a movement announced by other congressional Democrats on Wednesday to ratify an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would allow Congress to regulate political speech when it is engaged in by corporations as opposed to individuals.
The First Amendment says in part: “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…”
Television and radio networks, newspapers, publishing houses, movie studios and think tanks, as well as political action committees, are usually organized as, or elements of, corporations.
Pelosi said the Democrats’ effort to amend the Constitution is part of a three-pronged strategy that also includes promoting the DISCLOSE Act, which would increase disclosure requirements for organizations running political ads, and “reducing the role of money in campaigns” (which some Democrats have said can be done through taxpayer funding of campaigns).
I’ve got this great idea, Nancy: let’s wait and read the SCOTUS opinions on your last steaming loaf of hooey before we even give you the time of day.
It is as though these proto-fascist Democrats realize that, lacking any basis in reason for their bankrupt ideas, they have to go fully Hugo Chavez to regain enough control of the public discourse to retain their fading grip on power.
Keep up the pressure, people.
