“A little state control wouldn’t hurt anybody”

So sayeth California Attorney General Jerry Brown, to a “paranoid” Michael Savage:
“A little state control wouldn’t hurt anybody,” declared Jerry Brown, California’s Democrat attorney general, in on air comments yesterday about the possible reinstatement of the so-called “Fairness Doctrine.”
“You have a point of view and I have a point of view and they are different. I think the clash can sometimes illuminate the two better than just a one sided presentation,” stated Brown, during an exclusive interview with Michael Savage broadcast on the top talker’s national radio show.
Savage countered by positing any revival of the “Fairness Doctrine” is aimed at muting conservative talk radio. Brown replying by stating Savage’s suggestion had the “tinge of paranoia.”
Savage, however, claimed Brown was using “Soviet tactics” by attempting to paint critics of the Fairness Doctrine as paranoid.
“That’s what they used to do in the Soviet Union with dissidents Jerry. They would accuse dissidents of being paranoid,” Savage said. “A country that is supposedly free must have dissent.”
Awww, this is clearly nothing more than the ‘failed tactics’ of McCarthyism from Michael Savage, who clearly implies that Jerry Brown is a Communist when he alludes to the Soviet Union. Why, everyone knows that Brown isn’t a Communist…he’s a liberal Democrat.
