Conservatives aren't afraid that the public might be exposed to the liberal point of view. The public's exposed to the liberal point of view in the MSM and from Hollywood every day. Conservatives believe that if more people hear about what conservatives really stand for, then conservatives will gain supporters. Conservatives want more people exposed to what liberals really stand for.Liberals want to silence conservatives even as the liberals drop or cloud their basic liberal principles when they're running election campaigns. They are trying to silence conservatives in many ways: Campaign finance laws, pressuring candidates to avoid debates on Fox, advertising boycott campaigns, drumming up support for a return of the unfairness doctrine (as I said before, affirmative action for liberals), flinging so much name-calling and other abuse at conservatives (especially minorities and women) that they hope conservatives will just hang up their hats, and accusing conservatives of "hate speech" by distorting their comments and hoping skittish non-ideological corporations cave in. Bullying liberals can't retain power without rigging the game.You'd think that someone who wants to expose the public to more crazy liberal ideas would be in favor of the Fairness Doctrine, which doesn't try to silence conservatives but would merely allow an occasional liberal idea on the radio waves.
Meanwhile, we continue to link to McBride's blog daily, to help expose her ideas to a broader audience. We practice what she preaches.
