On September 17, 2009, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, warned of possible violence if the rhetoric wasn’t toned down across the nation.
House Minority Leader John Boehner, a conservative lawmaker, has spent the past few months trying to harness the anger of the GOP base. “Boehner said he does believe, we are in the middle of a modern day political rebellion. American people are saying enough is enough. They are scared to death that the country that they grew up in, is not going to be, the country that their kids and grand kids get to grow up in. Americans are rightly scared for their country.”
The Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas, responded to Speaker Pelosi’s plea for responsible de-excalation by saying “speaker Pelosi is right that the people are upset, but it is her own words that continue to fuel voter frustration in America…Voters are justifiably frustrated with Washington”.
We all seem to know where the rhetoric is coming from. Fox News Network www.foxnews.com, Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs http://loudobbs.tv.cnn.com/, Mark Williams www.marktalk.com/blog, Hannity, Limbaugh www.rushlimbaugh.com and O’Reilly have motivated thousands to turn out for tea bag, birther and deather events.
We are asking you, if you believe, Fox News and the rest are major components in inciting our citizens, utilizing, their media outlet as a weapon, to derail peace. Please, contact the Federal Communications Commission and lodge your complaints today. Our goal is not to infringe on anybody’s freedom of speech rights.
However, the question is, whether the words used by them, are used in such circumstances, and are of such a nature, as to put, us, all, in clear or present danger. That their words, will incite, substantive, evils against our citizens or president.
Military families have already taken a stand (please read). And, we urge other citizens, to do so too–by lodging 10 million (minimum of) complaints.
Here is your complaint form, citizens start complaining http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm, voice your complaint against this irresponsible media outlet today. To quote our military families “to stop these ongoing, long running, assault campaigns“.
