It's up on Drudge.

I don't know what context this was said in, but statements like that indicate to me that if the Democrats win, anybody right of Kerry could suffer a Stalin-like cultural "purge".

Clanton's comment was directed at SINCLAIR Broadcasting, concerning the broadcast of the upcoming anti-Kerry movie prior to the election.


sounds like he's threatening retaliation via the FCC.

The statement is about Sinclair TV stations intending to air anti-Kerry documentary.

http://www2.swiftvets.com/article.php?story=20041011074752867

(excepts below from WaPo article reproduced on swiftvets.com)

Sinclair Broadcast Group of Maryland ... plans to preempt regular programming two weeks before the Nov. 2 election to air a documentary that accuses Sen. John F. Kerry of betraying American prisoners during the Vietnam War.

Sinclair has ordered its 62 stations, some of which are in the critical swing states of Ohio, Florida, Iowa and Wisconsin, to air "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal" during prime-time hours next week. The Sinclair station group collectively reaches 24 percent of U.S. television households.

"Stolen Honor" focuses on Kerry's antiwar testimony to Congress in 1971 and its effect on American POWs in Vietnam. Kerry testified that U.S. forces routinely committed atrocities in Vietnam. The film, produced independently of Sinclair, includes interviews with former POWs who say their Vietnamese captors used Kerry's comments to undercut prisoner morale.
....

The company made news in April when it ordered seven of its ABC-affiliated stations not to air a "Nightline" segment that featured a reading of the names of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq; a Sinclair executive called that broadcast "contrary to the public interest."

me: News stories about this don't note that Sinclair pulled "Nightline" only after ABC refused to assure them the program would not be an anti-Bush screed. Sinclair then ran a nuetral discussion show about Iraq in its place.

...

The "Stolen Honor" documentary, which was released in early September, raises many of the same issues brought up by Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, an anti-Kerry group that has run ads in battleground states criticizing Kerry's wartime record and antiwar activities, especially his 1971 testimony.

The documentary's producer -- a small production company in Harrisburg, Pa., headed by a former journalist, Carlton Sherwood -- has no official connection to the Swift boat group. However, one of the POWs in the film, Paul Galanti, has appeared in a Swift boat ad.

Assuming the context was even hinting of a political purging (doubt it, but who knows anymore), such was the very reason the framers penned the 2nd. In such context, "come get some" would be the appropriate response.
