Italian Moonbats Pave the Way Toward Suppression of the Internet

Enjoy free speech on the Internet while it lasts, because if the Left has its way, it won't be around forever. Ricardo Franco Levi, chief assistant moonbat to Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi, has drafted a law, recently approved by the Council of Ministers, that would shove a ball gag into the Internet's mouth:

The Levi-Prodi law lays out that anyone with a blog or a website has to register it with the ROC, a register of the Communications Authority, produce certificates, pay a tax, even if they provide information without any intention to make money.

There's more. The law also

obliges anyone who has a website or a blog to get a publishing company and to have a journalist who is on the register of professionals as the responsible director.

In other words, the government would forcibly incorporate the Internet into the mainstream media, ensuring that the hoi polloi no longer challenges the establishment.

This is on a scale with the Internet censorship occurring in communist states like Cuba and China. If it gets through Italy's Parliament and the violent resistance it warrants does not materialize, it will spread. A law like this, combined with the Fairness Doctrine, would make freedom of speech a relic of history.

Moonbats' plan for the Internet.

Increasingly, it's a simple choice in this world. You can either live in a hell-hole. Or in the United States.

"Executed" is sugar-coating it, Pam.

I have liberal friends who I sometimes discuss things with, and I respect them WHEN they earnestly try to reason.

But people like this anon who troll around and comment with things like "HellStink" with no relevancy to the topic....well I think Malkin said it best, they "use it as some sort of debate-ending trump card".

Come on, kid. At least show some intelligence, act like a grown up...or at least pretend.
