I’m sorry, this may be the single dumbest thing I’ve heard from a politician since George Pataki said that his hate crimes legislation could have prevented the Holocaust:
“The very same people who don’t want the Fairness Doctrine want the FCC [Federal Communications Commission] to limit pornography on the air. I am for that… But you can’t say government hands off in one area to a commercial enterprise but you are allowed to intervene in another. That’s not consistent.”
Really? So political speech and hardcore pornography: the founders saw no difference between these things? Or forget the founders, since Schumer and Co. usually do. Does Chuck Schumer honestly think the two are comparable? That the state has the same interest in regulating porn as it does in regulating political speech?
Censoring donkey-human porn from public airwaves is not the same as censoring criticism of someone’s tax plan. My God, what is wrong with these people?
