Over the last several weeks I have been watching the developments involving Barrack Obama’s appointment of Mark Lloyd for the FCC’s diversity position –whatever that is supposed to mean. To be honest, my findings to this point on this man have been nothing short of scary. The intentions of this appointment are beginning to become very clear. They want to eradicate anything to do with the free speech market in our country. The first amendment is not only considered an exaggerated right by this man, but he has argued that some aspects of it should be considered criminal. The very reason that Obama even considered him for appointment should be of concern to all Americans right now.
Mark Lloyd a man who has openly praised the revolution in Venezuela as an example of a great democratic revolution. That is very telling because Chavez’s revolution is a radical government shutdown of media outlets that broadcasted information the government either didn’t like or disagreed with. One should wonder then, what kind of media revolution is this man calling for in this country, the country that is supposed to be the freest on Earth and we are sitting here waiting for our fate to be decided without any type of attempt to get an explanation from the administration. As Americans, are we going to let them get away with such a blatant attack on the constitution ?
This man has also lashed out against the first amendment. He wants the private media to be very harshly regulated at a couple of different levels: local content and diversity of ownership – and if media outlets fail to comply they will be imposed harsh fines that will in turn go towards funding government run media outlets such as NPR. They look to keep creating this illusion that the wealthy are trying to mold an overlying message in the media that promotes an agenda rather than the interests of the American People. In reality though, that’s exactly what the government is doing with the media outlets is already influences. Consequently though, the free market keeps rejecting those media outlets and those in government have to find ways to force people into watching their media by making it the only option for people to watch. That’s the only explanation for why they would want to lash out at online media as well.
The massive assault on all our rights is now being taken to a new level. We have a president who continues to appoint some of the most heinous, disgusting people he can dig up to work as agents for his administration. He has been using the position of “czar”, blatantly unconstitutional to begin with, so they don’t have to be answerable to anyone aside from himself, the president. One should truly be concerned about the volume of questionable men Obama has selected as qualified to work in his administration. The only time any of them have resigned is when enough crap has been dug up to expose them. Its time we turn our attention toward Obama, who has appointed all of them and demand an explanation from him about this.
