Apparently, our self-appointed representative of the Thought Police doesn't like that people are free to post videos on Youtube that might contain images or ideas contrary to his apparent plans for total regional war in the Middle East!
At least, it seems that way to me.
To his credit, Dr. Schmidt removed several videos that contained violent or illegal content, then he responded with this:
"While we respect and understand his views, YouTube encourages free speech and defends everyone's right to express unpopular points of view," the company said. "We believe that YouTube is a richer and more relevant platform for users precisely because it hosts a diverse range of views, and rather than stifle debate, we allow our users to view all acceptable content and make up their own minds."It's ironic that wimpy Joe Lieberman, who managed to avoid serving our nation in Vietnam by slithering out on multiple college deferments (thereby saving himself the pain of shooting off a toe or the shame of admitting to being a homosexual), is suddenly taking the war to Youtube.
Hmmm...I wonder if Joe harbors any OTHER reasons for hating the online video service...could it be THIS, or THIS, or THIS, or a million OTHER videos that feature Joe Lieberman looking like the political hack and dangerous wacko he is?
Oh, and if you're wondering where the "Tailgunner Joe" reference is from, watch this video:
