The democrats on the FEC board tried to deny a conservative filmmaker the same media exemption that they gave to liberal media such as Michael Moore and Daily Kos. Do you find it acceptable to apply rules based on political leanings?
However, media finds acceptance by $.
What was the violated rule?
So Democrats don't believe in "equality and fairness" now?
They never have. They're just in a different team.
I read the article. I found it disturbing.
They break the rules and then boo-hoo and say look at me I'm a conservative and I'm a victim. It.s not fair.
Your screen name is Think for yourself? I don't think you put any thought into this.
Sen ... which rules did he uniquely break?
The name is Seneca, not Sen. I don't call you Thin do I?
Sen if you think this is just a case of someone breaking the rules then you are either not thinking for yourself or you support these left wing tactics to suppress conservative speech. I am guessing the latter.
Still can't seem to think for yourself with your us versus them mentality. I will also have you know I am not affiliated with the Latter Day Saints.

When you take an ass and add a cyst it becomes annoying. So many people choose to pop the cyst. I am not sure if that can be applied here because I'm not sure if you are the cyst or the ass, but you are annoying.
Nema ... what's fascinating is that Seneca is all bent about the shortening of his/her/it's handle, yet has no problem throwing their own comments out addressed to nobody, forcing the rest of us to sort them out.
Sen ... I can understand that you'd do anything to avoid answering my question. It's what the leftists on SoH do to avoid the truth.
I'm forcing you. What a bunch of entitled nonsense.
-Nemacyst- Maybe you insecurities require you to repeat yourself because the people around you choose to not listen to you. I can clearly see why. I heard you the first time but if it makes you feel morally superior to latch on to the same idea and repeat it over and over like a kindergartener please indulge yourself. Maybe I should get you a juice box and your blankey.
The creativity you demonstrated there is truly preschool worthy. It's good to see you don't stray far from who you are.
Sen ... if you're finished with your outburst, please answer the question.
Oh so you don't have a mind of your own. Got it!
-Think- you people and your sense of entitlement.
Sen ... you clear don't understand. I have no sense of entitlement. If you childish choose to avoid answering the question then everyone here is able to see for themselves.
-Nemacyst- I followed you so when I need to dumb things down a bit I know where to look for inspiration.
-Think- I'm almost done.
Sen ... awwww ... and yet you refuse to answer the simple question. Hmmm ... it's clear that you know that what you said is a lie.
-Think- I said I'm almost done.
Oh lord, I'm repeating myself. Good God, I've become Nemacyst.
Sen ... thanks for showing everyone that you acknowledge that you lied.
Hey I think I just shit my pants. Give me a moment.
Their your dads pants. He loaned them to me after our date. He said he wanted them back ripe.
(Change their to they're)
No, not at all. I just want you to tell him the pants are ready for him and I'd like my 200 dollars.
H said he was your Daddy. I'm thinking probably your sugar daddy.
( Change H to He )
Nema ... you're better than that. Lead the middle schooler to twist in the wind.
He applied for the exemption AFTER he violated the rules. We should be talking about the three republicans who voted along party lines, not the democrats that followed the rules.
Paul ... where's your proof that the conservative used any different method than the liberals?
It's unfortunate that you making these unfound claims in a feeble attempt to justify inequality.
Paula defends any left wing agenda and tactics until the end. These rules are a grey area and ridiculous to start with and is a usual left wing tactic to have a system so vague that they can decide who the rules apply to and who they don't.
If you guys knew anything about the film industry you know that if you want a media exemption you file for it BEFORE you start producing the film. Not after the film is already in progress, just like I assume Michael Moore and other movie directors follow. Since they follow protocol, they are not subject to sanctions.
You're right Nemacyst, thank god a Muslim isn't running for POTUS or else I would have to vote for him! 😒
Paul ... I know enough about you that you give every benefit of every doubt to liberals.
Thanks for admitting that you have NO PROOF to back your bias.
Thanks for providing zero proof for your conservative bias and any evidence proving his innocence. You should take your "Because he's a conservative!!!" argument to the Supreme Court. 😉
Gotta go for the Muslim, if I don't vote for him I'm a racist right? ;)
Isn't it a hate crime if you don't vote for the Muslim though? Or is it a hate crime if you don't vote for the openly transgender candidate? So many minorities I don't know which one to pick!
And that's the problem with conservatives. You guys never give a damn about minorities and they never put minority issues in your party platform. Then you wonder why 80% of minorities vote Democrat.
Paul ... zero proof of the discrimination? Did you bother to read the references article? Ya, I didn't think you did.
Yeah I read that ditsy little article. Don't you think it's weird that they didn't provide any specific details? Who's on the committee? What were the complaints? Did they ask the committee why they voted that way? Nope. Just poor reporting and failing to cover the entire story. All you read was "Conservative lost a committee hearing" and you immediately jumped on it without any question, even though you must've read about how he filed for the exemption AFTER he committed the infractions? Hmmmm......
Paul ... show where they were wrong.
Show who was wrong?
Paul ... you assert that the article is wrong, prove your claim.
I never said it was wrong. It's just poorly reported.
Paul ... nice try at rewriting history! You called out the Republicans for "voting along party lines". The key is that the Democrats ignored the injustice they were committing and voted along party lines, and hypocritically inconsistent with their earlier rulings. The Republicans supported the rights of free speech, the Democrats voted to crush free speech.
How is voting against providing this man a media exemption something that's inconsistent with previous rulings?
It's like getting a ticket for parking in a handicapped space and asking the DMV for a handicap sticker so you don't have to pay the fine.
Paul ... what a great analogy. Let's use it! What if the police only gave tickets to Democrat violators and gave a pass to all Republican violators.
That'd be fair, right?
If it was under the same circumstances? No it wouldn't. But that's not the case here.
Paul ... demonstrate the difference!
He didn't have his paperwork filed before he released the movie. He filed for the exemption after he violated FEC regulations.
Paul ... you didn't show a difference.
If he filed his paperwork on time like Michael Moore did, we wouldn't be having this conversation.
Here's the difference.
This guy, filed for exemptions after complaints were filed against him. Liberal filmmakers like Michael Moore followed FEC protocol and receives exemptions before his movie was produced, before complaints are filed against him.
Paul ... again, I'll ask the exact same thing. Prove that Mr Moore followed the "protocol" (not law, just suggestion) to file beforehand.
You want me to find an article about Michael Moore following the law and filing his clerical paperwork for a movie from 2004?
Paul ... are you the one attempting to justify the clearly partisan and capricious response of the Democrats on this board? Are you the one who is suggesting that Mr Moore followed the "protocol" while others didn't?
If the answer is yes, then the burden to prove your assertions rests with you!
Oh, lol found it :)
This is a more in-depth source.
Paul ... so you submit a lawsuit by Mr Moore as evidence?
A lawsuit filed against Michael Moore for similar violations he was accused of doing but was found not guilty of? Yes.
Paul ... as for the second link, did you actually read it? It shows that Mr Moore is a habitual abuser of these FEC "protocols".
Your "evidence" only reinforces the point that the Democrats capriciously decided this one. Their intent was to prevent an accurate yet unflattering portrayal of MrO to come to light.
No, it shows Republicans accusing Michael Moore of committing these infractions only to be unanimously declared not guilty.
Accurate? You think he doesn't know his real father and his real father is a communist activist? Give me a break.
Paul ... you are SO funny! Leave it to leftists to define "fatherhood" as a momentary biological deposit!
Do you really think that by abandoning his son that Barrack Senior was fulfilling his fatherhood? And when the coward left, providing no financial or moral support, did any others step in to partially fill the father figure role? And did those who stepped in have any impact on MrO?
I really find it hard to believe that you are THIS naive!
What are you talking about? This movie is portraying Frank Marshall Davis as Obama's biological father?
Paul ... you didn't answer any of the questions I asked!
And in terms of nurturing the child a non-biological person can certainly be more fatherly than MrO's real father was ... can't they?
Yeah they could, but that's not what this movie is talking about so I don't know why you are?
Paul ... you really can't be this silly. You've got to be faking this level of naiveté!
