Absolutely!

"How about putting that on the radio? That's not permitted to be put on the radio. Do you think it should be?"
"Yes."
"You think it should be on the radio?"
"Absolutely."
"And on television?"
"Absolutely. And in politics."
-- Robert Novak and Frank Zappa on a 1986 edition of Crossfire, talking about "obscene" speech.

In the same show, John Lofton of the Washington Times has the nerve to tell Frank he needs to get out more.

Later, from Frank: "The biggest threat to America today is not Communism, it's moving America toward a fascist theocracy."

This was 1986, remember.

The more things change, the more they stay the same, eh?
