WATCH THIS FRIGHTENING VIDEO FROM KMOV
This video should shake you to your core. Obama supporters in Missouri are blatantly announcing that law enforcement will be used to prosecute you if you are part of campaign ads that tell, in their opinion, "lies" about Barack Obama.
And we thought the Clinton machine was bad? This is frightening. When will the lies be prosecuted about Palin, McCain, and Limbaugh? The answer is, they won't. This is how a free republic is taken down. When will freerepublic be taken down?
Nothing new, it’s what the terror wing of the Democrap party, the KKK, has dome since the civil war.
Only 0bama is allowed to lie in Missouri politics .
I live in Missouri, and three times in one evening, I was called by the Obama supporters, wanting funds. “Can’t you afford just $25.00”, they asked.
This is worse than I thought. The RNC needs to take legal action against these public officials and McCain needs to make a big stink about it.
Back in July, the Obama campaign said it opposed the “Fairness Doctrine”. We can take Obama at his word. / Sarcasm.
Fascism on the rise ping.
I can’t believe Americans are sitting back and taking this.
“Truth Squad” Sounds more like Brown Shirts to me.
I’ve said it so many times before. Will civil liberties advocates who scream about Bush being tough on terrorists say a word about abuses by an 0bama admin.? I think not.
People scoff when I say I hope we still have free speech and unfettered elections. But when you look at the attitudes of the left, you have to take this scary stuff seriously.
Goodbye first amendment. This is ad terrorum. They are trying to scare people into silence.
This news was posted last night, but I have not seen anyone yet explain how the state of Missouri can have a criminal libel law that can be prosecuted. If someone can cite or summarize the law, I would like to analyze it. My guess is that any such law would be thrown out, and in fact, now might be a good time to sue those bastards who threatened to do this in order to get the law declared unconstitutional.
Two words - Vladmir Putin.
It’s intimidation, plain & simple. I don’t think they believe they can make it stick, but they are counting on people being intimidated into silence.
You can guarantee that they define a “lie about 0bama” as anything negative about him.
I believe they plan to use an “ethics in government” law to prosecute.
Send it to fellow conservative Missourians. Don't waste time with Obama supporters - deaf ears.
Expose these scumbags. Rush touched on this briefly today too.
Is this on Youtube yet? It needs to be. Send it to Drudge.
These two prosecutors should be thrown under the jail and left there to rot! The US Justice Department should get involved RIGHT NOW!!!!
Typical marxist behavior. They can’t win in the court of public opinion, so they have to stifle debate and dissent.
I’m thinking of naming them Obama’s “blueshirts”, as a take-off on the national socialist “browshirts” and the socialist “blue state” concepts.
If any of you have a chance, I’d appreciate an opinion on this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTAVTUujqoE
Here is the issue. A lying, anti-Palin hit piece was put on YouTube, which looked very professional and used a voice over actress. It went viral and was reported in the mainstream media. Even the NY TIMES had to issue a retraction about the misinformation in the ad. It was put on YouTube after the retraction. A guy named Ethan Winner, from a PR firm in Los Angeles, finally admitted that he did it. He claimed hid did it all by himself and the voice over actress was find through an agency. He further claims that she had not done work for the Obama campaign.
I think Winner is lying. If the voices are the same in the hit piece, not declared as an Obama ad, and in the official campaign commercial, this is tied to Axelrod. See if you think the clips from the actress, who is coincidentally in Chicago, is the same voice as the ads. If Axelrod is behind this, I think he violated campaign finance laws and should be fired.
Thanks for the input.
If you think this is bad, just wait until Adolf Obama (peace be upon him) defunds the military, and uses that money to equip his “civilian security force”.
I think I would be prosecuted in Missouri.
(32 seconds from hitting “post” to the post screen showing up)
I heard this on Rush today. A very basic question begs - if they are going to arrest and prosecute folks for telling “lies” about Obama (their chosen One), what about the lies that Obama’s campaign (and Obama himself) have been telling about McCain?
Equal protection under the law truly applies here. Unfortunately, if an outspoken McCain supporter is telling the ugly truth about Obama in St. Louis, these two are going to railroad the person at least for a while with legal wranglings... basically silencing the constitutional rights of that person.
Fascism has come to Missouri
has anyone downloaded this clip from the station’s site yet? it will probably be removed soon.
Dan Rather and Mary Mapes said I had permission to tell Obama’s goons to kiss my rusty ass.
This is crying out for an emergency Certiorari hearing before the US Supreme Court
“Achtung...I mean Attention. Anyone caught lying about The Fuehrer...err I mean Sen. Obama, will be arrested and taken to Gestapo...err I mean police headquarters for questioning. That is all”.
I just phone the ACLU in St. Louis. I was the second call to complain about this, but they have not yet seen the ad.
Make the phone call! (I spoke with Debbie; the legal counsel who will make a decision was not in.)
ACLU of Eastern Missouri

I am at a loss for words. This truly is mind blowing. I don’t see how they can even conceive of this, it is so illegal. If he wins our freedoms are gone and I kept hearing from the left how Bush was destroying our freedoms.
Now I know why Obama wants to take away my guns. It seems this election is about the elimination of the US Constitution. The left wants it gone now. The bailout bill Dodd and Reid proposed is evident of criminal activity. The Democrats criminal activity. Dodd passed legislation that benefited the very companies that will be saved by the bailout. And he is protecting his campaign funders. He wants to take away from the taxpayers and give to his friends. Benedict Arnold sold one military base; Dodd is selling the entire nation for a campaign contribution
No radio or TV station is going to go along with it. It just p!sses them off. No prosecutor is going to take anyone to court because it would be an immediate loss and DAs do not like to lose in court. This is just wishful thinking.
Unbelievable. Truth squad? Prosecutors and law enforcement going after anyone who opposes Obama?
Are the citizens of Missouri going to take this? Are we Americans going to take this?
I just sent this to EVERYONE on my email list...mostly St. Louisans...and I strongly suggest everyone do the same.
The left is all for free speech, as long as you agree with them.
The socialists are just getting started, it ends with firing squads and neighborhood party police.
Somebody in the GOP had better get a clue and start fighting back.
Demanding the immediate resignation of these clowns would be a good start.
She said I could send him an email...told her I didn't do email and that I didn't want the Prosecuting Attorney coming after me anyway...told her that I would just work very hard to see that he is not reelected.
My standard reply goes something like...
If someone stapled a rabid weasel to my genitals and the only staple remover in the world belonged to a guy who would only remove staples for Obama voters, I still wouldn't vote for (or donate to) Obama.
Hey Obama truth squad,
Obama lies! You lie! You should be drawn and quartered if you try to use government powers to suppress free speech. Refer to the first amendment you fascist creeps!
Barak Hussein Obama is Marxist troll and he will raise our taxes as he destroys our republic (should he win the presidency, which he won’t)!
Yeeehaw!! Come and get me coppers! You’ll never take me alive!!
They’re public officials, but joined a specifically-Obama group to engage in these proposed prosecutions. Sounds like you could hit them back with a massive equal protection clause lawsuit.
These groups of prosecutors and sheriffs are really playing Russian Roulette with their communties with this kind of B.S. and C.F. There's absoloutely no way people are going to accept this form of rule of law. This clearly is not what the founding fathers had in mind for the rule of law.
I can tell you that if our county sheriff and distict attorney pulled this kind of nonsense there would be mass protests outside the courthouse. I wonder if it has ever occured to them that this kind of stuff was tried in the 1800's and it led to civil war.
When you start to go and missuse and abuse your legal powers in this way where a candidate for president is more special than his opponent and subject to legal protection from public criticism, you are treading on very dangerously thin ice. There is simply way too much at stake in this election and to expect people to accept your way applying the rule of law in this way is downright stupid, idiotc and foolish.
It's my hope that other people who engage in the same professions as these sorry, lazy miserable good for nothing blockheads will look at this stupidity and think twice about the negative ramifications of pulling this same stunt before they go to thinking about it.
I think an economic boycott of St. Louis is in order here. There are clearly far better places to visit than this.
Pretty radical, that Declaration of Independence. And a minority opinion among the populace at the time.
The patriots received active support from perhaps 40 to 45 percent of the white populace, and at most no more than a bare majority. (Wikipedia)
Where are we now?
Our Overlords had better be VERY careful....
Truly incredible. Doesn’t that qualify as some kind of abuse of office? I honestly don’t see how they can not only get away with this, but brag about it (to intimidate, of course).
