Man on Horseback and the First Amendment

Reader comment on item: Additional Thoughts on "Winning the Propaganda War"

Submitted by Alan Liss (United States), Dec 28, 2005 at 12:05

I think you need to spell out exactly HOW "the Muslim world" will understand the West and become more secular when they have a fanatical minority that dominates their media, combined with our left leaning socialist media that is a willing co-conspiriator - in blaming America and the west for all the ills in the Muslim world.

The bottom line is that unless we undo the insanity of a court system (a system that has destroyed the true meaning of the First Amendment - from the likes of Brandeis and Homes to the present) - (that allows traitors and the enemy to incite hatred and violence toward America, Israel and the West) - we will again be pushed into the same kind of defenseless policies that led to 9-11.

I think the answer is more than a little propaganda in the US State dept. I think we need to re-assert the notion that the 1st Amendment does not give the press (and others) license to aid and comfort the enemy.

Since the courts, the university system, and the overall media have pushed this country - and indeed the only savior of Western civilization, to the brink of destructioin - we are fast approaching draconian action - perhaps the proverbial "man on horseback" - after the next hit that kills in numbers sufficient to put the scare into even the socialist left.
