Stifling Online Speech

I’m usually not a huge fan of the New York Times, but head on over and read about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s comments at the Hague about stifling online voices.

When the administration she is currently working for is seizing domains and receiving rebukes from the EU about the practice you would think she would be speaking in the opposite way. Then you have the administration staying fairly silent on SOPA and PROTECT IP.

While they stay silent, Democratic Senators Klobachar and Franken (both, sadly, of Minnesota) are backing and co-sponsoring that same PROTECT IP legislation.

I hold out hope that the people of the USA wake up to the mass hypocrisy going on at all levels of government right now. It is one massive “do as I say and not as I do” farce being perpetrated on all levels.
