Dems on FEC Target Conservatives, Vote to Punish Maker of Anti-Obama Movie

The three Democrats on the Federal Election Commission, in their latest and boldest move to regulate conservative media, voted in unison to punish a movie maker critical of President Obama after he distributed for free his latest work, Dreams of My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception.

Filmmaker Joel Gilbert, owner of Highway 61 films, has produced several independent politically-themed movies and sent Dreams out to millions of voters in key swing states prior to the 2012 election.

While he acted on his own, and with no ties to political groups or parties, an FEC complaint was filed claiming he violated reporting rules, prompting him to seek the standard media "exemption."

But despite giving the same exemption to liberal movie makers like Michael Moore and Daily Kos, the Democrats recently voted against Gilbert in a February action, reviving their bid to punish conservative media, a campaign initially targeting online news outlets like the Drudge Report.

Of course liberals did this ! That's because unlike conservatives, the liberals, as goofy as they truly are, at least have enough sense to stick together as a group. I'm in now way condoning these latest actions, but will affirm they are doing this because propaganda is very important to the success of their ideology. And unlike conservative who are too busy trying to kill each other, liberals at least understand and remain focused on the fact that a uniformly delivered message has impact. And they are very busy circulating their message, which is why liberals are recruiting more young people into their ranks than conservatives. If America is ever to find itself again, conservatives must unite, learn to swallow their pride, and forget their ego, and start working together. It's the only thing holding the liberal left together, but as you can see it makes them a formidable foe.
