Curbing Dissent

Hopefully, someone with a lot more time and a lot more influence than me will pick up the ball and run with this one.

This is serious.

Kevin Drum notes Andrew Sullivan's dismay over the final paragraph of an article by Fred Barnes:

It isn't just the final paragraph, however.

The subtitle itself (repeated in the text) says it all: The media tolerate or even encourage Democratic rage. But the White House can't afford to.

Oh really? And so Barnes cautions [s]tronger countermeasures will be needed, including [...] a clear delineation of what's permissible and what's out of bounds in dissent on Iraq.

OH REALLY? And how is that any different than the tactics used by fascists to stifle dissent and further disinformation?

And for what purpose?

quote from link above: [...] solely for the benefit of the conservative movement and its agenda -- an agenda that, at its core, is profoundly anti-democratic.

I will be writing a letter to the Standard in response to Barnes' idiotic and dangerous contention. There needs to be a swell of outrage, however.

Don't let them get away with this.
