Leftists absolutely must have control…

They do not have control over this site or any of the new media, however. It drives them nuts. If it wasn’t for sites like this one, they would still have a near monopoly on the media.

One of the reasons the new media is hard to suppress is that people can be anonymous. This, then, has to end. A law maker in Illinois has a proposal to crush the Real Revo along with the rest of the new media.

A recently introduced bill in the Illinois state Senate would require anonymous website comment posters to reveal their identities if they want to keep their comments online.

The bill, called the Internet Posting Removal Act, is sponsored by Illinois state Sen. Ira Silverstein. It states that a “web site administrator upon request shall remove any comments posted on his or her web site by an anonymous poster unless the anonymous poster agrees to attach his or her name to the post and confirms that his or her IP address, legal name, and home address are accurate.”

The bill, which does not ask for or clarify requirements from entities requesting the comment removal, would take effect 90 days after becoming law.

The collection of authors known as Publius are spinning in their graves.

    They truly have no idea what ‘freedom of speech’ means. They are petty tyrants, looking for a fiefdom to rule… and Americans are giving it to them.

    I’m really starting to not like this place. My patriotism is beyond reproach, but I have no nationalism, zero love for government or many of the governed.

    This is an educational issue. Those who express opinions different than the official government position need to be re-educated and if they remain anonymous, how will we know who they are? We won’t be able to reach out to them and educate them properly. Once we do locate them, we need to re-educate them but, of course, they’ll also be in need of physical activity. So I guess they could perform some kind of community service while they’re being re-educated. A slogan would be cool, too. Maybe “Re-Education Through Labor”? And we wouldn’t want them to be disturbed so we would need a secluded place for re-education purposes. Maybe a camp. Or something.

    first they came for the smokers rights, I did nothing I did not smoke.
    second they came for the gun owners rights, I said nothing I did not own guns.
    third they came for the web commentors and I screamed out for help but no one came for there were none with the means to resist.

    Free speach, exist only as long as there is means to resist infringement thereof.

    Like I’d ever want to give my name and home information to some libs at Huff Po or Salon just to post a comment.

    These freedom sucking maggots are starting to piss me off.

    Choose your battles wisely, ya only get to lose one.
