The left’s “Deity”

April 15, 2009

I kid you not. I received the following tweet from a leftist troll today.

I’m a supporter of change the change our great and divine leader president Obama has brought to america

Let’s take a look at that statement through the eyes of a rational adult in a free society.
First off, “great and divine leader”? This leftist troll should move to North Korea, he would fit right in.
Second, note that the troll capitalized the name of his “great and divine leader”, but couldn’t be bothered to capitalize the name of the nation he lives in and provides him the freedoms to decent.

This leftist troll was complaining about American citizens exercising their First Amendment rights.
He claimed that this exercise of the basic Human Right of Free Speech was “treason” against his “great and divine leader.” This leftist troll sets his cult of personality beliefs above that of the Constitution of the United States of America. I would not be surprised if this leftist troll demonstrated the left’s typical lack of basic history by calling those who are exercising their Civil Rights “fascists.”

The New Thought Police: Inside the Left’s Assault on Free Speech and Free Minds by Tammy Bruce and Laura C. Schlessinger

Tammy Bruce is a classic Liberal, not a leftist. A very important distinction these days. Unlike the far left extremists that have hijacked the democrat party, Classic Liberals are defenders of Free Speech.

Let us have Hope that we can hold onto the First, Second and Fourth Amendments for the next four years.

More leftist violence

October 17, 2008

A McCain volunteer in midtown Manhattan was attacked by an angry democrat for exercising their First Amendment Rights.

Barak Obama isn’t a fan of the First Amendment either

September 26, 2008

Don’t expect much Freedom of Speech under an Obama regime. He is already giving a glimpse into our possible future by threating to bringing lawsuits against broadcast stations. This is to intimidate them into not running NRA sponsored ads that tell the truth about Obama’s anti-Civil Rights, Anti-Second Amendment record.

HT to Snowflakes in Hell

Update: A damn good point is raised over at Mr. Volokh’s blog.

I fear that under the Obama administration, the lawyers sending these letters will be government employees.

I’d have to say it’s a damn near certain thing.

A glimpse at what you can expect if Obama becomes President

August 28, 2008

Confederate Yankee points out that candidate Barak H. Obama has no respect for the First Amendment.

Obama’s campaign has previously threatened broadcasters who would carry an ad linking Obama to Ayers, and has also asked the Department of Justice to shut down the group that made the ad.

The intense campaign to silence dissenting voice has also included a recent campaign email asking Obama supporters to deluge Chicago-based broadcaster WGN with complaints to pressure the radio station to cancel an appearance by Stanley Kurtz, a writer with National Review who is researching the documents of the Chicago Annenburg Challenge.

The Challenge, co-founded by Ayers and chaired by Obama, took tens of millions dollars in grant funds and public and private matching funds with the stated goal of increasing the quality of education in Chicago. The program was utterly ineffective, and some critics are suggesting that the challenge was little more than a slush fund for left-wing radicals. At least $175,000 was funneled to Ayers’ friend, SDS radical, Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) (CPML) chairman and Barack Obama supporter Mike Klonsky’s Small School Workshop.

That disregard for the Constitution with the power of the Executive Branch is frighting.

Obama and the First Amendment

August 4, 2008

It appears that Barak H. Obama and his campaign staff are not big fans of the Free Speech clause of the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America.

Barack Obama Campaign IP’s caught shutting down Anti-Obama Blogs

At least one of the attacks in the latest wave of blog shutdowns this past week came from IPs assigned to barackobama.com.

We have reported twice in the last two weeks about the attacks on anti-Obama websites. [“Google, Blogger, Obama: Obamanation Shut Down My Blog!”]] & [BabbaZee’s “Anti-Obama Blogs Shut Down by Google, Obamabots”]

Speculation on who was behind the attacks has ranged from “Obama supporters” to “it’s no one, just a glitch” “to “it’s a browser problem”. [Site Meter causing Internet Explorer failure ]. This latter is a completely different issue from the blogs that got shut down by Google/Blogger.

A few liberal blogs and Instapundit have said there is no connection between this latest wave of blog shutdowns and the Obama camp.

Speculation can now be set aside–at least, in one instance.

A damn good reason

July 16, 2008

Mr Reynolds expands on a theory he has proposed before:

Obama is humorless, and full of himself. That would make him a great target for satire, except that his followers take the position that any mockery or criticism is racist. The prospect of four years of that sort of thing is the best reason I can think of not to vote for him.

Barak Obama’s supporters have no problem denying others their First Amendment rights in their near religious zeal in attacking any threat against their “Lightgiver.”

File this one under blindingly obvious…

July 10, 2008

…except of course for so-called “progressives” who are actually trying to destroy the Bill of Rights. Stanford Law Professor Lawrence Lessig points out that the anti-First Amendment “Fairness Doctrine” is a direct attack on constitutionally protected free speech:

HH: Do you favor the return of the Fairness Doctrine?

LL: I don’t think you can, under the First Amendment, restore the Fairness Doctrine, and I don’t have any desire to amend the First Amendment, no.

HH: And do did you think the Fairness Doctrine, or that Red Lion, was wrongly decided when it came down?

LL :In that technology context, maybe not. Certainly now in the context of the technology we have right, I don’t think it’s constitutional, no.

HH: On that note of extraordinary agreement, Professor Lessig, thank you for your time. I look forward to having you back another time.

LL: Thanks for having me.

This has nothing to do with “Fairness” and everything

A chilling insight into the Obama supporter mindset

June 30, 2008

Newsbusters has been investigating why Google has been locking down anti-Obama blogs.
In particular, blogs put up by Pro-Hillary Clinton groups that do not support the so called “Lightbringer.”

Here is a partial list of blogs shut down for not toeing the Obama party line:

Here is the latest update:

I have been hesitant to post this update because I cannot find a link to prove the claim, but it is starting to look like this Blogspot shut down of anti-Obama sites occurred because of a concerted effort by Obama supporters.

What they did was go to the Blogspot addresses found on the site of the NoObama coalition called Just Say No Deal and constantly hit the “mark as spam” link so that Google’s Blogger would be flooded with spam warnings. This caused Google/Blogger to freeze the sites marked.

Apparently, this campaign merely took advantage of Google/Blogger’s flawed system of finding spam blogs. So, it looks like what we have here is an Obama dirty trick to shut down political opposition. Looks like Obmatons aren’t much for that whole democracy thing, eh?

Yup, this looks like another left wing direct attack on the First Amendment by the Obama supporters.
Odds are it is the far hard left extremist moron.org crowd, most of which are not bright enough to know they are owned and operated by George Soros.

It’s also a chilling insight into what American would be like under an Obama Regime for anyone who dares to speak out against the Lightbringer.

Update: More at Hot Air, Bloggasm, and NoQuarterUSA.

Update: Even the New York Times has noticed.
