Many people would recall one of the Dems finest examples of proper representation, Hank Johnson. I can think of no better person to properly represent the majority of Dims. He was the one concerned Guam would become overpopulated and capsize.
Well, he’s back at it.
Hank wants to amend the constitution to restrict the free speech of corporations, in order to thwart their mind control ways.
“We need a constitutional amendment to allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations,” said Johnson.
“They control the patterns of thinking,” said Johnson. “They control the media. They control the messages that you get. So, you are being taught to hate your government–don’t want government, but keep your hands off of my Medicare by the way. I mean, we are all confused people and we’re poking fingers at each other saying, well you’re black, you’re Hispanic, immigration, homosexuals. You know, we’re lost on the social issues, abortion, contraception.
“And these folks,” Johnson said, “are setting up a scenario where they’re privatizing every aspect of our lives as we know it. So, wake up! Wake up! Let’s look at what’s happening. We need a constitutional amendment to allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations.”
Well, it is true that most media outlets are own by corporations. But, I find it difficult to believe the NY Times, WaPo, CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, the L.A.Times and the like teach people to hate the government. I rarely watch the TV networks, but I can unequivocally state, the print and online corporate media doesn’t not teach people to hate the government. It is overwhelmingly in the opposite direction. As to the “patterns of thinking” that’s probably only on tilting islands.
