Censorship and Public Broadcasting

It has been my experience that the left censors and the right lies and censors. Since I switched Bigger Fatter Politics comments to Disqus I Fat Bastardo and my investigative journalists have encountered the usual lying but more troubling than lying is the Nazi style censorship. Privately owned websites can censor and most of them do but government funded sites like those overseen by public broadcasting aka PBS cannot censor but they do. Here is what one group of public radio stations is forbiding:

Your submissions may not infringe upon others' use and enjoyment of the SCPR Web sites.

Do not post any material or links to material that is libelous, defamatory, false, obscene, violent, abusive, threatening, harassing, prejudicial, employing profanity, or is otherwise in violation of the law or SCPR's guidelines. (If you see a violation of this policy in an SCPR discussion space, please report it on our Contact form.)

Nearly everyone of these forbidden criterion is the based on the judgment of some Nazi censor. Let's look at a few example:

Prejudicial: Mohammed was a pedophile. Anyone during anytime who would marry a six year old and begin fucking her when she was 9 is a pedophile but some PBS affiliates won't allow you to say that.  

Profanity: What is profanity? Shit but not poop? Intercourse but not fuck? Penis but not cock? Fellatio but not cock sucking?

Obscene: A priest molested a boy and got away with it or a priest rammed his cock down the throat of a boy and fucked his ass until he bled?

False: Obama is a gay Muslim or John McCain is a liar and a known wife beater?

Violent: We need to kill bin Laden or we need to kill the traitorous criminal elite who kill more innocent people than the terrorists?

Abusive: I respectfully disagree with you statement or you are a lying sack of shit?

Harassing: There are many contradictions in the Bible but I respect your faith or the Bible is a big fucking pack of lies and you are an idiot to believe it.

Your submission may be removed by us at our discretion, for any reason.

We will remove from the site any comment that violates our guidelines. In instances of willful abuse, we reserve the right to take whatever action we determine appropriate, including the termination of access privileges and legal action.

Some time ago Google censored and de indexed Bigger Fatter Blog based on complaints from angry jealous fat girls who hate men and hate the fact that I have proven that fat people gluttons. That is what they found offensive. Finally Google, not wanting to be sued removed the warning on my Bigger Fatter Blog and re-indexed it.

Google is a corporation and they have no obligation to protect freedom of speech and is at liberty to censor what ever they choose. There is no doubt about that. It's different with public broadcasting which is publicly funded.

I will be contacting free speech champion Larry Flint to inform him of this blatant violation of free speech.

It's no secret that the US is no longer a functioning democracy and President Jimmy Carter said as much while Ron Paul called American government corporatism and a mild form of fascism.

I am not the only one concerned about the disturbing censorship trend in public broadcasting.

If you have been a victim of 89.3 KPCC or other public broadcasting censorship please contact them and complain. Report your experience  to the ACLU of Southern California and see if they will file suit against PBS.
