As you may recall, Mark Lloyd was criticized from the Right prior to his Senate confirmation over his praise for Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and his fascistic revolution to shut out private property owners and media; and his own ridiculous ideas about the First Amendment, i.e. "[T]he purpose of free speech is warped to protect global corporations and block rules that would promote democratic governance."
“(W)e have really, truly good white people in important positions. And the fact of the matter is that there are a limited number of those positions. And unless we are conscious of the need to have more people of color, gays, other people in those positions we will not change the problem.Lloyd's definition of "diversity" means white people "step down" so "more people of color, gays" and "other people" "can have power." And thereby "change the problem" and achieve "media diversity."
“We're in a position where you have to say who is going to step down so someone else can have power.”
Despite my own objections to this kind of race-based (dare I say racist) philosophy, Lloyd's comments are even more troubling given his current power gig at the FCC. The more we find out about this guy, the more I think he should board the Communist train with "truther" Van Jones and get out of town--there should be no place for Mark Lloyd in our federal government.
