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 really don't think they want to go to court to decide what is true and what's not. Will they go after those making falsehoods about Gov Palin, too?

Well crap -- does this mean that big Bob McCollough is gonna send his goons to arrest me for my McPalin bumper sticker?

As soon as I get home I'm firing an email, or maybe I will call, and ask the St. Louis County Prosecutor whether they will be going after those lies spread about Sarah Palin as well. What a putz.

Goodbye first amendment. This is ad terrorum. They are trying to scare people into silence.

That's why we have the second. This is criminal.

I am not a lawyer, but I know from reading various stories on this type of lawsuit that a person holding or running for public office has a much more difficult time suing in civil court in this type of case.

As for criminal court, there is not law that applies.

If I am wrong, please post the law.

If you threaten a public official, if you create a public disturbance you can be arrested.

But not for what you say providing you say it in a place allowed by law; meaning that you are not crashing someone else’s party to do so.

Had I not actually watched the video, I would have dismissed its description as a kook alarmist post often seen out there on The Web. This is unbelievable.

This is, obviously, an attempt to intimidate, however, I didn't hear where they said they were going to prosecute anyone, just that they would be targeted, whatever that means.

Obama has big ears and an ugly bump on his face.

a misleading TV ad

And who decides what's "misleading"? This is unbelievable. How can prosecutors and sheriffs basically work for a certain candidate?? And to the other poster- the one prosecutor actually did say something about "character" so is isn't a question of truth, but what they determine may be misleading or impugns Obama's "character". This is truly frightening. Hey DUmmies and KOmmies, you wanna know what fascism looks like? Take a look at your buddy Obama and his good squad.

This is about intimidation and suppressing the truth about Obama. If they scare people with prosecution, they only need to hide the truth another seven weeks.

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

Wish we could get answers or updates about this big ongoing problem. The 3 new servers were installed earlier this week, but it seems they haven't helped the slow and no access problems even a little bit. It's been like this on and off for many months now. I hope it gets resolved soon, because I don't see FR making it through the elections otherwise. It's so frustrating!

TV stations, radio stations and newspapers hear threats like this all the time.

It will not intimidate them for one second.

Some individuals might be afraid to write a letter to the editor, but the news will not stop.

There are facts that will make news. It is that simple.

Really it is funny. It makes the cops look like Barny.

McCULLOCH OFFICE

YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS!

I just called county prosecutor Bob McCulloch's office. I spoke with his secretary Cindy.

DFU: I saw the KMOV piece last night regarding the lies being told about Barack Obama. It is about time someone is doing something about this. Last night I saw a bumper sticker that said BARACK OBAMA IS A MUSLIM. I asked the guy about it and where he got it, and I think I may know the printer in St. Louis who is printing that bumper sticker. When I can verify the information, would Mr. McCulloch like to have that information?

CINDY: In light of what Mr. McCulloch has said, I would gather that would be something he would need to know.

I emailed the governor at http://governor.mo.gov/constituentform.htm
and told them if they weren’t going to enforce the law across the board to include lies about McCain, they were infringing on first amendment rights and strong arming Missourians.

New York Times Company v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 (1964).
In order for a public official or a public figure to prove defamation, they must prove actual malice. Actual malice requires that the person suing prove that the challenged statement was published by those who either knew it was false or were reckless in verifying its accuracy.

Who is a Public Official?
The Supreme Court has said that a public official is one who, at the very least, has or appears to the public to have, a substantial responsibility for or control over governmental affairs.

Who is a Public Figure? There are two categories:
(1) General Purpose Public Figure: a “celebrity,” whose pervasive fame or notoriety has made his or her name a “household word.”
(2) Limited Purpose Public Figure: someone who has voluntarily assumed a leading role in a particular public controversy.

Jennifer Joyce is one of them. I just called her office and ask if she was doing the same thing for McCain. The secretary did not know, I told her I would be checking into seeing if this was the case and if she was a contributer to Obama’s Campaign. Explained that if she were it would be a conflict of interest and to expect a barrage of calls to both her and the Attn General's office. She was very sweet and said she had already been getting them all day.

Jennifer Joyce contact info.

The ranks of Obama's gestapo would mostly consist of the Nation of Islam types.

That way, the hostile Nation of Islam organization essentially gets financed by the US government.

States that vote for Baraka in November will forever wear a Scarlett letter in my book.
