The truth doesn’t reflect well on Barack Obama. So, as I’ve mentioned, one of the ways he’s trying to suppress it is through attacks on free speech.
Well, he’s at it again, this time through legal goons in Missouri.
Kudos to the Governor of Missouri for calling out Obama on this.
Mark Steyn sums matters up well:
. . . this pattern is well established: The Obama campaign's response to uncongenial allegations is not to rebut them but to use its muscle to squash the authors. This is especially true when it comes to attempts to lift the curtain however briefly on the Senator's mysterious past.
More may be found here and here. This has really set the blogdom on fire. Funny, the “Mainstream” News Media isn’t saying much about it.
There's been enough backlash that at least one of the legal goons is now backpedalling:
As a citizen, I believe that elections should be about issues. I also have enormous respect for our First Amendment and freedom of speech. My sole purpose in participating in this initiative is about getting truthful information to the voters.
This has never been or never will be about prosecuting people.
Maybe. But it sure as Hell was about chilling the free speech of those who want to tell the truth about Obama.
I’ve noticed in my experience that the Leftist version of free speech is free speech for them, NOT for those less enlightened. This Leftist quality is all too evident in Barack Obama and his thugs.
Something else I’ve noticed. There is a cabal of Democrat lawyers in Missouri that has no problem using the courts to rig elections. For example, it seems every big Election Day, some Democrat judge uses long lines as an excuse to keep the polls open longer . . . only in Democrat areas of the state, of course. Here’s one sordid instance from 2000.
I fully expect Missouri Democrats to use one of their corrupt judges to pull this again on November 4th. You heard it here first.
