Birds of a Feather, Doing What They Do

Some fellow (or gal, I can't tell) named "Cuffy" over at a neat little (and by "little" I mean "still bigger and probably more widely read than this blog") blog called Perfunction has posted this interesting compilation of quotes regarding the "pulling of licenses" from various broadcasters for the crime of (politcally) offensive speech, running the gamut from DailyKossacks reacting to last night's sad little cockfight, predictably through latter-day former-Soviet nation states, all the way back to our own dear actually-in-power Democrats. Go give it a read.

The thought that struck me the most was how, despite being so different in presentation (e.g., the smiley-faced socialism of the US versus the gray bureaucracy of the former USSR, versus the stark militarism of present-day Cuba and North Korea), Leftists always display a remarkable, even admirable consistency in thought, rhetoric, and tactics.

It's probably possible to compile a similar list of quotes from Leftists and other tyrants whose goal was to "pull gun right".

Suppression of speech and the ability to defend one's self are necessary to institute their visions.
