Liberal censorship refers to liberal attempts to mute all opposition to liberal beliefs.

Liberals inevitably demand censorship of ideas that challenge their views, and thus attempt to silence all criticism of their ideology by slandering conservatives and other opponents as racist, reactionary, legally enforce political correctness, and establish legislation making many forms of religious speech illegal under misnamed hate speech laws. This is especially true in the most its most extreme political manifestation, communism.

The NRSC makes this claim:

  • Realizing that their ideas couldn't compete in the Free Market, Democrats schemed for ways to crush conservative talk radio's success. Their answer? The so-called “Fairness Doctrine.” Revival of the “Fairness Doctrine” would have the chilling effect of censoring conservative talk radio by requiring radio stations to air liberal content. Air liberal content or your station license will be revoked. It's unfortunate that Democrats are willing to trample on our First Amendment rights for political gain.[1]

In an attempt to divert attention from this demand, liberals charge that Conservatives also censor when they can. An example some give is Conservapedia. They claim that edits that disagree with the prevailing conservative viewpoint here regularly lead to a block, even though Conservapedia says it does not block for ideological reasons [2].

Liberal Totalitarianism

The result of pervasive and institutionalized liberal censorship is termed liberal totalitarianism.

Such attempts to remove first amendment rights (see Fairness Doctrine), along with gun control and the outlawing of creation science and even homeschooling, have led many critics to note the parallel between the modern liberal movement and 20th century totalitarian regimes.[3][4][5]

Georgia Congressman Paul Broun claimed that Barack Obama may seek to establish a Marxist dictatorship in the United States.[6]
