NEWS VIDEO - Missouri pro-Obama prosecutors will prosecute you for "lies" about Obama
kmov ^ | 9-26-08

Posted on 09/26/2008 11:23:59 AM PDT by doug from upland

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Send the video link to your State Rep. I did. Have the Rep send it to their fellow Republican Reps.

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.

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”.

(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.

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

Or as Thomas Jefferson said...

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

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.

This is what happens when you play nice.

Somebody in the GOP had better get a clue and start fighting back.

I just spoke to someone at his office...she put me on speakerphone and I told her that I saw the interview and found it offensive that he wanted to limit free speech.

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.

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.

Here are my thoughts on the subject. FR is running way slow this afternoon for some reason.

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?
