CNN, Shirley Sherrod advocating censorship?

Here a CNN anchor asked Shirley Sherrod if Andrew Brietbart should be shut down. She says yes.

John Nolte responds saying,

Never once, not even in private — not even as the entire corrupted media was savaging Sarah Palin’s family and reporting on the status of a private citizen’s plumber’s license — not even as the whole of the MSM was spreading lies told by the Congressional Black Caucus about the Tea Party hurling racial slurs — not even after reading what we already knew to be true on JournoList — and not even now as we watch all the hypocritical sanctimony surrounding Sharon Sherrod drip from the same MSM lips that refused to broadcast videos proving the Tea Party had been defamed by members of Congress — never once have I heard a fellow Vast Right-Wing Conspirator even hint at the idea of silencing, quieting, or shutting down the other side.

As a former Leftist I do, however, understand the knee-jerk leap to fascism. Being a Leftist sucks when it comes to political debate. You really only have two choices to try and convince others that yourprogressive ideas and values aren’t toxic, and that’s emotionalism, lies, or both.

As a former Leftist, Nolte warns "When the Left threatens the 1st Amendment, it's not hyperbole and its not a joke. If they had the power to do it they would do it."

Please read Nolte's very short but outstanding article on Big Government.
