Obama to UN: The Notion That We Can Control the Flow of Information is Obsolete

OBAMA: I know that not all countries in this body share this particular understanding of the protection of free speech. We recognize that. But in 2012, at a time when anyone with a cell phone can spread offensive views around the world with a click of a button, the notion that we can control the flow of information is obsolete.

RUSH: Who’s even thinking about that? The fact that he’s thinking about this is an indicator, folks. This means we could, at one time, control the flow of information, or at least at one time we had the notion that we could. With cell phones now, though, damn it, we can’t. But then let’s go back earlier. You know me. There’s nobody better at parsing sound bites than me. I mean, everybody airs these sound bites now, granted.

But nobody parses ’em better than I do, ’cause I know these people. I know that not all countries in this body share this particular understanding of the protection of free speech. He had just talked about the protection of the Constitution, as though these idiots at the UN don’t know about free speech. They all know about it ’cause they hate it! Free speech is their number one enemy, most of these leaders at the UN.
