"Chuck Schumer vs. Free Speech"
From the “some pigs are more equal than others” file:
Perhaps the most striking thing about the Disclose Act is that, while the Supreme Court overturned limits on spending by both corporations and unions, Disclose seeks to reimpose them only on corporations.
Well, in fairness to Schumer, corporations are evil, and unions are good. So what’s not to like?
As a bonus, media exemptions under the proposed bill will extend to major media corporations — but not to websites or the internet. Where all that free speech has proven most costly to elected officials.
This way, you see, only the right kinds of things will be “disclosed” — to your collective benefit, and just as God intended it. After all, too much information — particularly when it is the kind that escapes the helpful filtering of our betters — is a distraction from the real goal: learning the lessons the government wants you to learn by engaging only those narratives the government wants you engaging.
Because frankly, all this freedom is making some of you proles rather, you know, uppity…
