Appearing on MSNBC Monday evening, Rev. Al Sharpton told host Ed Schultz that he was meeting with representatives of the FCC to discuss ways to prohibit conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh’s “blatant racist tirades.” Sharpton also brags about his efforts in preventing Limbaugh from taking an ownership stake in the National Football League (NFL) last year:
Rush Limbaugh has the right to see whatever he wants to say. He can’t do it on publicly regulated air waves. The FCC has the responsibility to set standards to say the public cannot be offended based on their race or gender in this country, and you federally regulated air waves that they give licenses to that are very competitive and the FCC is very selective based on standards.
Protecting people against being offended?
Any regular listener of El Rushbo knows Limbaugh is no racist, but liberal activists continue to insist on government-regulated “guidelines” to police talk radio airwaves for so-called “offensive” language (aka anything they disagree with). Will Sharpton and his coalition partners be successful?

I'd like to press the EPA to deny Sharpton an oxygen license."The efforts of the government alone will never be enough. In the end the people must choose and the people must help themselves" ~ JFK; from his famous inauguration speech (What Democrats sounded like before today's neo-Liberals hijacked that party)

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

Hey, Mr. Sharpton, I'm offened by much of the liberal propaganga that passes as entertainment and news over those federally regulated airwaves. Are you going to work to shut down MSNBC, PBS, NPR, and Free Speech TV too? Or are you going to tell me to take the logical, free choice and not to watch or listen to them?
Also, Mr. Sharpton, are you going to provide any examples of this racist talk, or just expect the FCC to take your word for it? I got pwned in a recent debate with a lib online because, while my arguments were logical, I lacked the supporting documentation, and was man enough to admit it. Are you?
Yes, I know he'll never read these words, but even if I got an audience with the man, I would get the same response.Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.
