You know this -- been around for awhile this color of change business they -- Glenn back.
They are it's.
Very very vicious and what they do but I'm wondering if it crosses into the black -- range.

Basically shut down conservative speech and look they have a right to lobbying companies that it is afraid every country they can lobby.
Coca-Cola and Kraft and McDonald's and tell them well American legislative exchange council which is basically a free market group.
Business interests and state legislators a couple thousand people.
It's a free market group.
Still a lot of different issues lot of different research draft legislation that look if you do anything with them if you give them any money.
We -- going to do something I think -- intimidation campaign.
OK so and and yeah and then let me say and and they the bottom line is is his color of change does not want free speech they don't want any real debate I don't.
I don't think there's any doubt about it that the far left and we've been reporting this for.
I don't know -- dozen years now.
Not only do they don't want free speech but if you dare to go against their ideology their about -- at this triumph yes hurt you.
You hurt your family.
They'll do anything they can and I don't see that on the right there are some right wing cranks no doubt about it.
But it isn't is organize and it isn't as.
Brutal well funded it's extremely well funded and and -- -- what they do bill is when conservatives seem to be successful.
-- talk radio for instance my business but Rush Limbaugh other people what and when they're successful.
-- you have these groups pop pop that -- to not take on hot talk radio on issues have debates forums and so forth.
But to say we're gonna copy cut you off of the -- -- -- be of the make money and that's a good.
And I want yet we had invited Van Jones on tonight even know we as Adobe new book I don't know still Vietnam but.

The fascist tactics.
Of color of change I say fascist because this is what.
Regimes -- They basically say you don't talk unless you agree with us and -- -- -- I hope we will punish you -- degrees of punishment.
Yet this is sky James rocker the other co-founder of color change Van Jones.
There used operating bill and in places like -- Manhattan and LA and San Francisco Washington College campuses -- where they pretty much talked to other people.
Who agree with them all the time they don't really interact with people who disagree with them and so they don't -- to have the discussion at all and what -- -- what I would say to McDonald's and Kraft and all these companies.
Is look I understand give -- -- shareholder.
Not return of investment to be concerned about here so it.
But you could be next.
If van Jones and his people have his way I hope these corporation understand that that capitalism is on the line capitalism -- well I think maybe you know.
