Truth: The Greatest Enemy Of The Obama Administration. TSA Reverses New Censorship Rules… Only Because We Noticed Them

censorshipSadly, the Obama Administration will do everything it can to remove the freedom of speech from those who disagree with them.  If we stop watching, if we stop reporting it, if we stop making sure his agenda is not revealed to all… we will eventually no longer be allowed to.

And I wish this were an exaggeration.  The military now needs permission to talk to the press.  Reporters are denied access to the oil cleanup.  Reports for the liberal MSM are told what to say.  All of these are documented on this site and others.

To Obama, the First Amendment applies to all… who agree with him.

Last week, TSA issued a memo to its employees that announced a new policy of filtering Internet access, and that among the sites to be blocked were those offering “controversial opinions.”  After CBS reported the memo, conservative bloggers and the ACLU found some rare common ground for protest.  Initially, TSA said that the memo didn’t refer to politics, but now the Washington Times reports that they’ve revised the policy anyway (via Weasel Zippers):

After an uproar from conservative bloggers and free-speech activists, the Transportation Security Administration late Tuesday rescinded a new policy that would have prevented employees from accessing websites with “controversial opinions” on TSA computers at work.

The ban on “controversial opinion” sites, issued late last week, was included as part of a more general TSA Internet-usage policy blocking employee access to gambling and chat sites, as well as sites that dealt with extreme violence or criminal activity.

But the policy itself became controversial as the Drudge Report and a number of conservative bloggers highlighted the possibility that the policy could be used to censor websites critical of the agency or of the Obama administration in general. The American Civil Liberties Union also questioned the language.
