Skip to comments.Obama Threatening Critics with Fines and Jail
Posted on 09/27/2008 2:29:40 PM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines
Reports continue to come in that Barack Obamas Presidential Campaign is threatening legal action against his critics.
On Tuesday (September 23), CBS affiliate KMOV reported that Obama had enlisted a number of Missouri law enforcement officials, including local sheriffs and prosecutors, to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading television ad [against Obama] during the presidential campaign."
The CBS report is the latest of several incidents where the Obama campaign has threatened critics with civil or criminal prosecution. According to World Net Daily, his campaign also sent threatening letters to several news agencies in Pennsylvania and Ohio demanding they stop airing ads exposing Obama's gun stance. In addition, Obamas lawyers twice demanded the Department of Justice investigate and prosecute the American Issues Project, its officers, board of directors, and donors, for running ads critical of Obamas ties to unrepentant domestic terrorist William Ayers.
Obama himself has also urged tough measures against people who fail to back him, telling a group of supporters in Nevada recently to argue with and
get in [the] face(s) of Republican and independent voters.
Wow! These main stream media guys are in the tank for Obama! How come no opportunity for the Republicans to give their side of the story?
Has the NRA responded to this yet?
It goes to show what a muslim thinks of our Constitution when it comes to freedom of speech.
This is only the beginning folks. If he gets in ( and he probably will) all anti Obama talk will be suppressed. The Fairness Doctrine will be #1 on his list. rush , Savage , Levin and the likes will be off that air in a New York minute.
Places like FR will be targeted .Think I’m kidding ? Just wait .
If anyone catches Obama in a lie can that person press charges? Based on the logic of his campaign it appears one could...but of course that would be slander to point out a lie and would be arrested before pointing out said lie.
Welcome to 1955 USSR.
With my pleasure, friend.
Feel free to appropriate this too:
I want my money back!
I’ve paid my dues, done all the things right, saved my bucks, never faltered on any payment - even once in this nation - and the people who do get rewarded because they were ‘mislead’ by sharks????
Gimme a break! Everyone knows when they are being handed a rainbow they can’t afford nor ever intend to make payments on it.
Excellent my friend...and very scary as well.
I notice that my left wing friends that have been screaming about loosing their rights under Bush are very quite and in fact will not respond to this. What is happening is beyond sad.
Obama forgets this is not Nigeria, Zimbabwe, or Kenya, his birthplace.
Maybe there is some kind of ‘subliminal’ advertising going on (apart from the odious, overt kind) with folks who watch a lot of movies and TV. I don’t watch television but rarely but a hell of a lot of people do, and it seems like they are more or less brainwashed.
Thanks. The sad part is that I could probably make a killing selling them non-ironically to a lot of Democrats.
Someone should run an ad saying Obama is showing a forged birth certificate on his website then invite them to prosecute or disprove them.
Alternatively, run an ad claiming Obama is communist who has been the Protege of William Ayers since meeting him in 1983 in New York where they were both at college in the same neighborhood.
Have him disprove that one too!
This is really scary. What will they do? Arrest people? Intimidate? Blackmail? I downloaded the video and have sent it out.
I don’t watch TV either and I see very easily what Obama is. Scary that so many people support an American hating Bolshevik. I’m worry for all of us , I really am.
Here it comes folks , the revolution.Don’t doubt for a second that this guy is in for the long haul.I don’t doubt that if he looses he wont protest and call for revolution .
My Dad and I just look at each other and wonder how in the hell a creep like Obama ever got as far as he has. This is really scary.
Legal action by a prosecutor for non-adherance to partisan talking points warranted a trip to the concentration camps in Nazi Germany for a breech of ‘political justice’.
That shit ain't gonna fly here.
well , Kerry came close , so did Gore , both complete fools. This guy is much more dangerous.Most of America is watching Dancing with the Stars and Deal or No Deal or whatever crap and they haven’t a clue or an interest in what is really going on . The MEDIA directs most minds and the media is LEFT driven.
Oh, the PRINCIPLED ones are...
