So we can deduce from these statistic that the amount of people outside of this group who care about what is being shown on TV is almost no one.

That is at least who care enough to call the FCC.

That's fucked. We should start a pro-indecency activist group. Or maybe an "anti-activist group" activist group.

It just goes to show you, something that conservatives and right-wingers in general have known for years, all you have to do is make noise and you can get your way.

All these right-wing groups with names like "Concerned Parents against Gangsta Rap" or whatever. If they shout loud enough it seems like they're talking for a lot more people then they really are.

No, I know what you mean. When conservatives do it, it's an outcry. When liberas do, it's shrill. Or some variation thereof.

Yeah, I was at the RNC protest this summer, here in New York. They were very intent on shutting us up, but not by listening to us.

I was in an Anti-Parents group as a kid. Boy did I scream. But I'll be damned, I still have parents.
