Obama appointee wants to gag the Internet


The Internet has served as the source of samizdat in the defense of the Free World against the global jihad. While the mainstream media moves in ever more craven lockstep, insistently retailing Islam-Is-Peace fantasies no matter how much the evidence mounts that there is a violent and supremacist imperative within Islam that must be addressed if it is ever going to be ended, one can still find the truth on the Internet, if one knows where to look. But if Obama and the OIC get their way, and I don't see any reason why they won't, this springtime won't last much longer.
Free Speech Death Watch Alert: "Gag the Internet!," by Kyle Smith for the New York Post, July 11 (thanks to Paul):
<BLOCKQUOTE>
When it comes to the First Amendment, Team Obama believes in Global Chilling.

Cass Sunstein, a Harvard Law professor who has been appointed to a shadowy post that will grant him powers that are merely mind-boggling, explicitly supports using the courts to impose a "chilling effect" on speech that might hurt someone's feelings. He thinks that the bloggers have been rampaging out of control and that new laws need to be written to corral them.

Advance copies of Sunstein's new book, "On Rumors: How Falsehoods Spread, Why We Believe Them, What Can Be Done," have gone out to reviewers ahead of its September publication date, but considering the prominence with which Sunstein is about to be endowed, his worrying views are fair game now. Sunstein is President Obama's choice to head the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. It's the bland titles that should scare you the most....

Czar is too mild a world for what Sunstein is about to become. How about "regulator in chief"? How about "lawgiver"? He is Obama's Obama.

In "On Rumors," Sunstein reviews how views get cemented in one camp even when people are presented with persuasive evidence to the contrary. He worries that we are headed for a future in which "people's beliefs are a product of social networks working as echo chambers in which false rumors spread like wildfire." That future, though, is already here, according to Sunstein. "We hardly need to imagine a world, however, in which people and institutions are being harmed by the rapid spread of damaging falsehoods via the Internet," he writes. "We live in that world. What might be done to reduce the harm?"

Sunstein questions the current libel standard - which requires proving "actual malice" against those who write about public figures, including celebrities. Mere "negligence" isn't libelous, but Sunstein wonders, "Is it so important to provide breathing space for damaging falsehoods about entertainers?" Celeb rags, get ready to hire more lawyers....</BLOCKQUOTE>

And not just the celeb rags.

Issuing gag order against the internet is just possible, It might prevent one country from reading it's people one content but still people will find there way. And i am against using the frredom of internet just to thrash one religion without any proof sounds just baseless,ridiculous and stupid.

One should go into details before accusing anyone or any community or religion.

This realistically could have far reaching effects.

I was reading something similar out of Iran, where the power was claiming that the unrest was being blamed on those who are radical and spend time on the internet. I don't think these governments understand that they can't have it both ways. Either it is a global community or it is isolationist dictatorships.
