Last Sunday, we told you about the Democratic Party’s attempt to use the Federal Elections Commission to regulate free speech on the internet.

Bill Whittle has put perspective on the issue in a new video from Truth Revolt.

Here’s an excerpt:

This smiling, normal-looking woman is Ann Ravel. She heads the FEC — the Federal Elections Commission. She’s a Democrat in a Democratic administration pursuing the Democratic party’s goal of intimidating, jailing and otherwise harassing their political opponents, who are mean because they don’t like being told what to do, or to think — the way nice people do. So she has been ordered to weaponize the government against unregulated speech — we don’t call it “free speech” any more because that term is archaic and also probably racist.

It’s not like she doesn’t want to! As a typical progressive Democrat, Ann Ravel has two overriding psychological needs:

First, regulate everything. How on earth with people like Ann Ravel and, for that matter, the President of the United States, ever be able to feel secure when the American people are just running around starting businesses willy-nilly, or irresponsibly making internet videos that don’t conform to the Official Truth, or reading news stories — “news stories!” — on places like Fox or the Drudge Report.

This actually dovetails perfectly with Professor Jacobson’s new column at Townhall.com:

The Era of Trust in Government Is Over

What explains the crash and burn of trust in government?

Wasn’t the Obama presidency supposed to be a “change we can believe in,” a time in which the role of and faith in government was to be exalted?

In substance, the Obama 2008 campaign theme turned Jack Kennedy’s famous inaugural speech line on its head: Ask not what you could do for your country, but what your country could do for you.

Barack Obama was from the government, and he was here to help.

And “help” he did.
