Dems Threaten Anti-Iran Rally Organizers With IRS Attack if They Let Palin Speak
Newsbusters ^ | 09/21/08 | Warner Todd Huston

News has emerged that the organizers of that anti-Iran rally that famously got snarled up in Senator Hillary Clinton's ire at Governor Sarah Palin last week were threatened by New York Democrats with IRS action against their tax-exempt status if they allowed Palin to speak. CBS local NY news reported this little fact and so did NBC but most of the national news has ignored this outrageous threat to use the IRS to silence Governor Palin.

If Palin is as incompetent and inexperienced as the Obamatons claim, why are they so afraid of her?

FWIW, I don’t think this was so much a threat as an excuse after the fact.

A starkly clear example of why we are in our current financial situation and a glimpse of the repressive government that would ensue if Barack Husein Obama, the First, becomes President and Dictator.

I see Hillary hasn't changed her spots after all. I though the campaign humanized her to certain degree.

Guess after all, she still Satan's handmaiden

A picture is worth a thousand words. Had they not forced Hilary to publicly decide not to attend - and at this point I believe she was forced by the party not to attend.
Obama would have lost many more Hilary Supporters.
The images of Hilary and Sarah standing together fighting Iran would have done alot of harm to Zero.

“Barack Husein Obama, the First, becomes President and Dictator.”

Yes. Threatening with the IRS even before being elected.

I been thinking about Obamitator’s domestic police force he’s been talking about. Red Guard?

Time to stock up on ammo.

It would seem to me that the news of a political party trying to use the IRS to shut down their opponents would be somewhat newsworthy? Yet, we haven't heard this story on the national scene at all. Would we have heard about it if it were Republicans trying to use threats of the IRS in such a manner?

A question that did not need to be asked, the answer if so obvious.

To a degree I once would have thought impossible, the Obama/Daley/Kennedy wing of the Democrat party has been making HRC grab the wiping end of the stick in public. Whatever they are offering (keeping the skeletons buried, giving her a good - but not actually powerful - job, etc) must make all that humiliation worthwhile.

...threatened by New York Democrats

Worthless allegation without the names of the Democrats.

Just another example of Hussein's "IN-YOUR-FACE" politics!!

Just think of the intimidation and pressure his BIGGER, MORE POWERFUL, MORE CONTROLLING, MORE INTRUSIVE GOVERNMENT could impose on anyone and anything.

Exactly, because they actually made it politically partisan when they disinvited Palin rather when they invited her.

The determination of the Left to silence free speech, the free exchange of ideas, and liberty itself is dangerous and frightening.

Imagine what these people will do if they seize power sufficiently.

Imagine what they would do with a Democrat President, a filibuster-proof Democrat-controlled Congress, and a packed Supreme Court.

Wow! It’s okay for black churches to spew Democrat propaganda, though.

Someone I know that went to a Reform Temple Services the other night heard something interesting.

The Liberal Rabbi, let something slip....

He said something to the effect of how Jews have loved liberty and democracy until recently.

Perhaps the email I sent to him witha picture of Sarah at services for "The Frozen Choosen" and her unwaiving support for Israel had something to do with it :-) ....

Folks this is not going un-noticed...

Sarah go anyhow!

Speak the truth you will be rewarded!

How about anti-American racist vitriol, hate and venom??? I wish it was only propaganda.

The determination of the Left to silence free speech,

Nothing more revealing than the speed at which some will retreat to their closet and suddenly appear in Brownshirt.

Nor more frightening!
