Ho hum: Obama’s lawyer threatens TV stations that run NRA ad
hotair.com ^ | September 25, 2008 | Allahpundit

Posted on 09/25/2008 3:42:03 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

I’m surprised. Usually in cases like this, Obama has his cult followers inundate the offending station with irate, semi-coherent phone calls, like they did recently to try to knock hatemongering smear merchant David Freddoso off the air for the crime of committing journalism critical of The One. For whatever reason they’ve decided that won’t work here, so they’re opting for Plan B. Straight out of the Democratic handbook Harry Reid used to threaten ABC’s broadcast license for showing the “Path to 9/11,” here’s Obama lawyer Robert Bauer warning station managers not to air the NRA’s new anti-Obama “Hunter” ad if they want to stay in the FCC’s good graces.

Trampling the 1st Amendment to cover up their trampling of the 2nd Amendment.

You know, I am getting really sick of these idiots in Congress. They don’t listen to the people. It’s time to get rid of all of them including Obama.

I would swear after reading they try to squelch free speech, that I was in a time warp back to communist Russia.

Hey Bauer, go suck your own ass pal. And take that Marxist fool client of yours and his butt buddy Bill Ayers with you.

I don’t think Obambi can out threaten the NRA on any TV station. The guy does not understand America.

Sounds like extortion to me . The NRA should take the guy to the woodshed and sue his a$$ to boot !

Obama is running an ad in our area. It starts with the “I approved this ad” line then a former NFL player says both O and Mac will make sure we keep our guns, but what about the rest, losing jobs, lobbyists, and O will give each family a 1000 dollar tax relief.

Pretty strong statement about guns, but he doesn't say it someone else does. Kind of the opposite of ‘bitter clingers’ I would say.

Impressive. Two Amendments in one assault. They are getting better at savaging our rights as the campaign goes on.

Agree totally! And if they sue it right off, it would make it easier for him to do as instructed by NoobRep:

I read Bauer’s letter... I have to laugh when he says that people would have nothing to fear in regards to keeping their guns with an Obama Administration.

In Obama’s own words:

“I believe in keeping guns out of our inner cities, and that our leaders must say so in the face of the gun manfuacturer’s lobby.”

Suing, or threatening to do so isn’t going to silence the NRA.

EVERYONE, PLEASE WRITE AN EDITORIAL TO YOUR LOCAL PAPERS ABOUT THIS. It is time we blitz the local papers with the truth instead of the lies that most papers publish.

The ad plays like clockwork in these parts, too. Former redskins football player, as I recall the ad, head, or part of some “hunting” organization, a group that is anti-gun. That bit about both candidates “protecting our right to own guns” is probably the idea that they’re trying to get across as the anti-gun Gore, as well as the idiot Kerry lost big in the area though they won the state, albeit, by a margin that narrowed...and in ‘08?...

Yep. Stations in "blue zones" aren't likely to run the NRA ads, while those out in the bitter, clingy hinterlands might just invite such a lawsuit. They have attorneys too, you know.

Attaboy, Barack... stirring up the pro-gun crowd just weeks before the election. If they weren't thrilled about McCain, you've given them yet another reason to get out and vote *against* you.

Obama’s top ten responses to any situation if he becomes President:

10. Why can’t we all just get along?
9. How ’bout I come over to your place and we can talk further? No strings attached.
8. That’s not the {dictator name} I though I knew
7. You’re only threatening the US because I’ve got a funny name, don’t look like other Presidents and I am black
6. I’ll be at the White House multitasking. Call me if you need me.
5. Well… ummm… my staff has an… errrr… hair trigger.
4. What I’ve always said…
3. Question my judgment/ patriotism and I’ll sue you
2. Present!
1. uuuuuhhhhh… ummmmmm… errr… uhhh… it’s all because of Bush/ McCain policies.

What the lawyer did has to be illegal. He has threatened retaliation — unequal treatment by a government agency obligated to provide equal treatment — to those who perform legal actions. Equal protection, hah! Where is Judidial Watch?

I like the fact that Joe Biden insinuated that he would shoot Obama if he came after Biden's shotgun collection.

It makes for good political humor.

The NRA should make this letter the subject of their next ad, and hunters/gun owners in areas served by stations that pull or refuse to run this ad should make known that they will not watch those stations.

“...A knock on the door at 3:00 am and a bullet behind the ear...”

That assumes that one can’t shoot back...and that one would meekly submit to it...and that it won’t be expensive for them...or that they won’t be met with a GLEEFULLY launched storm of copperjacketed lead...

Call it “Payback” for 200 million innocent dead victims...
