Fascists Prepare for Kegan's Confirmation

Well it looks like the fascists are preparing for Kegan's confirmation as a SCOTUS justice. They've filed a complaint with the FCC about "Hate Speech" on the internet and talk radio as the opening salvo for the imposition of political censorship of the internet and talk radio. And given Kegan's record on the First Amendment, I'm sure she agrees wholeheartedly with their sentiments. According to an article by Mark Tapscott at the Washington Examiner:

Freedom of speech, religion and other First Amendment issues are likely to be among the most visible during the coming Senate confirmation hearings on President Obama's nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan for the U.S. Supreme Court.

As an illustration why, consider this quote dug up by the First Amendment Center's David L. Hudson, who found it in a government brief signed by Kagan in United States v Stevens: “Whether a given category of speech enjoys First Amendment protection depends upon a categorical balancing of the value of the speech against its societal costs.

Keep your powder dry people, we may need it yet.
