Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez supports this terrible plan to shut down Rush Limbaugh
Democrats want the complete shutdown of all conservative media.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is at the front of that parade.
And she just announced her support for this terrible plan that would shut down Rush Limbaugh.
At the South by Southwest technology festival, Ocasio-Cortez ranted and raved about how former President Ronald Reagan was a racist.
She continued this diatribe on social media where she listed off a series of liberal smears about former President Reagan’s record.
– HIV/AIDS crisis and demonization of LGBT+ community
– Ending the Fairness Doctrine, which launched the polarized media environment we’re suffering from today
Why are we not supposed to talk about these things?

Ocasio-Cortez including the Fairness Doctrine raised eyebrows.
The Fairness Doctrine was an old media regulation that the government used to suppress conservative speech.
If a radio station aired Rush Limbaugh’s program, they would have had to devote an equal number of programming hours to a liberal show.
Since no one wants to listen to liberal talk radio, those shows were not profitable and networks steered clear of opinion programming.
That all changed when Reagan took the government’s boot off the media’s throat and lifted the Fairness Doctrine.
Democrats have seethed ever since.
Ocasio-Cortez lamenting the loss of the Fairness Doctrine is a sure sign that it is about to make a comeback.
Liberals would like nothing more than to take Rush Limbaugh off the air.
That would allow them to control the flow of information Americans receive by silencing all non-liberal voices.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s support for the fairness doctrine is the cornerstone of that plan.
