The new law also prohibits contents which is deemed to disrespect public officials.
the votes of opposition politicians who say these rules are a threat
to freedom of speech, the President says it will help protect
citizens against online crimes. Opposition politicians accuse the
President of passing a raft of restrictive laws before January, when
new legislators with more opposition to his policies are sworn
Under the new rules, providers of online contents and internet portals could be fined if images or messages appearing on their sites "disrespect public authorities, incite or promote hatred or create anxiety in the citizenry or alter public order".
The President says the law will shield citizens from messages promoting drug use, prostitution and other crimes.
"We aren't eliminating the internet here, or censoring it," he said during his weekly television and radio broadcast.
"What we're doing is protecting ourselves against crimes, against cybercrimes," he added.
Oh, wait, the above was not the U.S., FCC ruling, it was Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
U.S. President Barack Obama will read from his teleprompter, soon, "Dittos, Hugh!"
If the slight temporal disclaimer that the new regulations are, for now, a product of the Progressives' Hugo Chavez regime, and not instantaneously, the product of the Progressives' Hussein Obama regime, gives cause for relief among any of the, usually, politically aware, then, I am scared to the point of losing control of bowel and bladder.
The coup d'etats of liberty in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela under Hugo Chavez is the model of communications takeover used by the Progressives' Obama regime.
When the NWO speaks through its p.r. firm, the United Nations, they say this:
President of the UN General Assembly
“Venezuela Should Serve as a Model in the Fulfillment of the Millennium Goals”
The president of the General Assembly of the United Nations, Alí Abdessalam Treki, recognized the progress made by Venezuela in terms of the Millennium Development Goals after meeting with the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez.
If the take over of media is thought to be a curiosity of tyranny stereotypic of South American “banana republics” that could never happen here, consider that the FCC actions were made as a finger in your face despite Congressional disapproval of Net Neutrality and the Supreme Court declaring it unconstitutional.
But who is the FCC point man in this takeover? Let's consider Mark Lloyd.
Mark Lloyd, "Chief Diversity Officer" at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), is an Emmy Award-winning journalist and has been a producer for among other outlets NBC and CNN.
In Lloyd's 2006 book entitled, “Prologue to a Farce: Communication and Democracy in America”, he calls for an all-out "confrontational movement" against private media. He wants leftist activists - through incessant political pressure - and the government - through the creation of a totally untenable operating environment of fees, fines and regulations - to work together to force the commercial broadcasters out, to be replaced by public broadcasters.
Furthermore, the Diversity Czar has written about the First Amendment:
"It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies.
"[T]he purpose of free speech is warped to protect global corporations and block rules that would promote democratic governance."

“The FCC Chief Diversity Officer is seeking to punish conservative radio broadcasters”
Not worried yet? Let's add praise of him from the Left. According to the "Advisory Committee to the Congressional Internet Caucus":
Mark Lloyd is a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress focusing on communications policy issues, including universal service, advanced telecommunications deployment, media concentration and diversity.
He has also served as a consultant to the Clinton White House, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Open Society Institute and the Smithsonian Institution.
Does media concentration juxtaposed to diversity give you reason to feel relieved?
For those unaware, among other things, experts connect, William Jefferson (Bill) Clinton, financially to George Soros, wbk is the Open Society Institute and The Center For American Progress. Therefore, Mark Lloyd is George Soros' boy puppet at the FCC, to move as George pulls the strings.
