Is There Even a Chance Anyone Will Vote for Newt, and I2?
I would consider this old news except that he has repeated his stance on this, as disturbing as it is. Read on.>>>
For those who don’t know Newt Gingrich is under the impression that the right of Free Speech should be constrained for the safety of the Nation. Earlier this year Newt Gingrich came out saying that the freedom of speech must be controlled so that terrorist can’t feed off what is said by the public, and so that bloggers and websites can’t speak badly about the Government of the U.S.
Feeling in rare form again, Gingrich gave the same type speech. Article
“Our friends at the ‘ACLU left,’ of course, were staggered at this concept,” Gingrich told an audience of Republicans at a Christmas banquet. “How could we talk about anything less than 100 percent free speech? How could we consider in any way thinking about this issue?”
Gingrich cited last month’s ejection of six Muslim scholars from a plane in Minneapolis for suspicious behavior, which included reports they prayed before the flight and had sat in the same seats as the Sept. 11 hijackers.
“Those six people should have been arrested and prosecuted for pretending to be terrorists,” Gingrich said. “And the crew of the U.S. airplane should have been invited to the White House and congratulated for being correct in the protection of citizens.”
As if we need the people thrown into a hysterical mode every time someone prays. I have seen Christians make the sign of the cross before games plane flights, and many other things. So let’s through them in jail, they might be getting ready to start another crusade. Well that is a ridiculous statement, as much as Gingrich’s.
What is making this scary is that people agree with this lunatic. He is proposing muzzling the bloggers, and shutting down sites that he disagrees with. He believes that the government should approve the news, and people agree with this. It is only a matter of time until they Neo-Cons find away to scare the shit out of the people again and there in regaining control of them.
I am sure Newt knows that the government is already in the process of doing exactly that, with Internet2. I did a story on this two years ago, and the fact that the government has sunk millions of dollars into the development of Internet2. Incase you have never heard of Internet 2, here is what it is.
Internet2 is a network that was put together by colleges and Universities, for speed in transferring data between the schools. A 10 million dollar endeavored, was funded by numerous companies, such as Comcast, Intel, and Sun Microsystems.
You might say, what is the problem with that? Other companies that are interested in pushing this through include AOL. One of the things that AOL is doing is trying to use the best selling point, “Fear”. They have put out a commercial that tells the viewer how bad the internet is, and Big Brother is watching everything that you do on the internet. Below is the script of the ad, it is hard to find the commercial. The script is from Prison Planet

Voice over What do you think?
The reason that a company that makes money off the internet is demonizing the very source of its income is, they want you to go to Internet2 when it is widely available. The reason for that is that AOL is working with the Government on setting up the I2 so that you can only get on I2 if you get a permit or license from the government, and then you have government control over the internet.
We need to let the government know that we know what their up to, and that their Orwellian/Gingrich plan at stifling Freedom Of Speech won’t be tolerated.
