…to continue shedding light on this man, and on Progressivism and the Democratic Party generally.
Nevada’s Democrat Secretary of State [Ross Miller] says he’ll do all in his power to crush a conservative organization that ran ads against him in his campaign to become the state’s attorney general.
As Secretary of State, he’s also the one who oversees elections—including the one in which he’s running.
And he’s doing his “Stifle, Edith” act because he doesn’t like a political ad being run by the State Government Leadership Foundation. If you’re curious, the ad is here, but the content isn’t particularly important.
What’s important is that this man is so terrified of a contest of ideas in the town square that he’ll do everything he can to evict from that arena any speaker saying things of which he personally disapproves. What’s important is that this man is so terrified of a contest of ideas in the town square that he’ll do everything he can to make sure that folks in that arena can hear only the speech he deems fit for their tender ears—he won’t allow them to decide for themselves what they’ll listen to.
And this is typical of Progressives/Democrats. See Brendan Eich and Mozilla, see Condoleezza Rice and Dropbox, see the Obama administration’s IRS. The list is endless.
It makes me think that Progressives/Democrats know only too well that their ideas can’t survive the disinfecting sunlight of open competition.
