What Happens When The left Gets Slaughtered?
« on: April 17, 2017, 07:15:40 AM »
Aside from not understanding the fact that we have a Republican form of Govt with laws protecting us from tyrants such as themselves, they still claim the laws are unfair because they lost. :biggrin:

The former Federal Election Commission chairwoman Ann M. Ravel says that political speech must be controlled on social media. She presented her remarks in a speech at UC Berkeley, calling for regulations against “fake news.”

Facebook
Speaking at an event called “Future of Democracy,” Ravel argued the proliferation of “fake news” and political advertising on platforms like Facebook influenced elections. She warned that the lack of disclosure by the creators of these campaigns was becoming a huge problem.

“We know that there’s a lot of campaigning that’s moved to the internet, whether it’s through fake news or just outright advertising and there is almost no regulation of this, very little,” she said. “And so that the disclosure that we expect as to who is behind campaigns is not going to exist soon”

“Some people are even predicting that by 2020 most of the advertising is going to move from television to the internet, and I think this is a serious issue that requires a lot of discussion,” continued Ravel.

During her tenure as the chairwoman of the FEC, Ravel previously called for right-leaning websites like the Drudge Report to be “regulated,” and blamed hostile responses towards her proposals on “misogyny.” She claimed it was within the purview of the Federal Election Commission to oversee internet political activities, including the airing of political viewpoints.

Well....Based on the sites she mentions in the list, it's a safe bet it won't involve anyone on the right. :lol:
What I find so fascinating, is people like her are considered the intellectuals of the left, the so called "Leaders" of the Progressive movement, yet not one has a clue what the Bill of Rights was designed for.

Here's a clue Mzzz Ravel, it was meant to protect even the most ludicrous of speech, even nutballs like you on the left.

Fake News is anything reported by Garrison Keillor & The Prairie Home Companion - purported to be COMEDY.
Or any so called "facts" from Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Elisabeth Warren - Oh, add Chelsea Clinton in there too... all fake.

An even about curbing free speech called “Future of Democracy”.

The left always serves up delicious irony.
