It’s all over the Web. Speaking on KFI-AM in Los Angeles, Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe (R) with host John Zeigler, the veteran politician reported that Democratic Senators Hillary Rodham and Barbara Boxer are actively seeking out a “legislative fix” to end talk radio, specifically conservative talk radio. Listen for yourself if you don’t want to believe me.
This comes as no surprise to industry veterans like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and the rest; Democrats have been seeking to dethrone Rush for decades by putting up failure after failure when it comes to a “liberal alternative” to Rush, Sean and the gang. So far, most efforts have failed. The latest failure, Air America, was a such a commercial disaster that even the most robust financial consolidation software couldn’t cook the books enough to keep the venture from going down for the 10-count.
However, this is the first time a Washington insider has broken Beltway ranks to allow the American public to be a fly on the wall and hear how the issue is talked about when liberal politicians think no one’s listening.
If Inhofe’s report is genuine, then we have “the woman who would be president” and a top California senator both conspiring to to through legislation what liberals have failed to do through the free market: get rid of any contrary opinions or alternative voices, thus ending the constitutional right to free speech, and enforce a liberal valhalla where everyone who gets to speak agrees with them.
