PLANET MORONIA: Anyone Surprised?

Clintons call to censor ABC 9/11 drama




The New York Post has posted a story that reports, “A furious Bill Clinton is warning ABC that its mini-series ‘The Path to 9/11’ grossly misrepresents his pursuit of Osama bin Laden - and he is demanding the network ‘pull the drama’ if changes aren't made.” The article went on to say,


Clinton, whose aides first learned from a TV trailer about a week ago that the miniseries would slam his administration, was "surprised" and "incredulous" when told about the film's slant, sources said.


Of course they were, all these years they thought ABC was on their side.


Albright and former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger also dashed off letters to Iger [at ABC], accusing the network of lying in the miniseries and demanding changes.


Apparently Maddeningly Not-So-Bright and Handy Sandy the Burglar were upset because the movie failed to show how she gave nuclear technology to the North Koreans, who in turn shared it with terrorist-sponsoring states in the Middle East; or Burglar’s famous scene where he stuffed evidence of Clintonian incompetence and treason into his socks to keep it out of sight of the 9/11 Commission et al.


Maybe the Clintons should hire their (and Handy Burglar’s) good friends the Chinese to shut down ABC like the regime just did with the outspoken website run by Huang Liantian. Or it could get Google or Yahoo to pull any advertising. I admit it might be strange having the Chinese working for the Clintons instead of the other way around, but surely something between old friends can be worked out.


I love Clintonian logic, especially where it enters discussion on political speech and the Constitution: When CBS aired a factually seriously flawed miniseries on President Reagan, the Clintons were silent. But if anyone dare consider airing a perspective on the Clinton White House not officially sanctioned by the commissariat, it must be banned… or edited to remove any material deemed offensive to the Clinton Committee.


The difference between the Reagan and the Clinton pieces is that the details going into much of the Reagan miniseries were crafted in spite of personal accounts by those close to the Gipper, whereas the 9/11 movie’s details were drawn from personal accounts by those close to the Clintons and their staff among other reliable accounts, of which some were offered under oath.


But it’s nothing new to find the radical among liberals trying to silence speech with which they do not agree, particularly when it is the political or religious speech actually explicitly protected by the First Amendment, as we’ve seen over the years by watching the witch hunts undertaken by the ACLU. The ACLU and the far left in America have much in common in this area with four other groups: common criminals and thugs, the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, and Islamofascists. The fact therefore that once again, the champions of political censorship attempt to silence their opposition or anything which contradicts the official party line should be of no surprise.



RELATED: On free speech, Angel at WOTS has dug up some notable quotes, even as ABC and Disney have caved for likely fear of having their collective kneecaps broken. As Ann Coulter says...


AND ANOTHER THING: I forgot to add this earlier - a link to Mark Levin's blog, where he posted some of those pesky facts the "Clintonoids" are denying.

That's a great article. I didn't hear all this whining when Michael Moore put out his movie, or any number of other lies put out by his ilk. But oh, no, now that it's THEM, they can't take it. And Clintin is one to talk about lies, huh!
