Intimidation by ObamaNation

Intimidation by ObamaNation

by Mark Hillman


Barack Obama says Republicans "are going to try to make you afraid of me." Well, it's hard to imagine how the GOP could conjure up a more fearsome specter of an Obama presidency than the one created by the tactics of his own campaign.

Responding to those who dare commit blasphemy against The One, Obama's campaign has unleashed lawsuits and urged prosecution by no less than the Justice Department, enlisted elected officials to threaten and intimidate his foes, and deployed its vast internet e-mail list to silence bloggers and radio talk shows.

In Missouri, Obama allies, from a U.S. Senator to a local sheriff, threatened criminal proceedings against television stations that air anti-Obama commercials. Such "police state tactics" prompted Gov. Matt Blunt to charge Obama's campaign with "abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism."

ObamaNation used the same strategy against the National Rifle Association when its political fund released ads to educate gun owners about Obama's hostile record. Bob Bauer, attorney for the Obama campaign, urged cable and television stations in Pennsylvania to "immediately cease" airing the NRA's ads, because the campaign determined they were "false, misleading and deceptive."


Similarly, Bauer pressured the U.S. Justice Department to prosecute the non-profit American Issues Project and one of its donors over an advertising campaign that exposed Obama's alliances with domestic terrorist-turned-university professor William Ayers who has reflected, "I don't regret setting bombs...I feel we didn't do enough."

The Obama campaign also dispatched its thought police to silence the free speech rights of opponents on radio and internet.

First aimed at internet blogs supporting Hillary Clinton, Obama supporters swamp certain unfriendly blogs with "spam" complaints. When those complaints reach a threshold, Google's Blogger platform renders the blog inoperable. Bloggers must then wait for Google to make an individual determination whether or not each accused blog is legitimate.

A more sinister intimidation befell journalists probing Obama's background in Chicago politics, as well as radio stations that provided a platform for those reports. The Chicago Tribune reported that Obama's campaign used its database "listing contact information for millions of people" not only for raising money but "to beat back media messages it does not like."

Milt Rosenberg, a longtime talk show host on Chicago's WGN radio interviewed two prominent Obama critics, author David Freddoso and professor Stanley Kurtz. Freddoso's The Case Against Barack Obama is a best-seller that unflatteringly examines Obama's career, while Kurtz fought the University of Illinois to gain access to files documenting activities involving Obama and Ayers.

In both cases, Rosenberg specifically invited Obama's campaign to participate. Obama's camp not only refused, but it dispatched an e-mail alert instructing compliant Obamabots to bombard the radio switchboard and e-mail in order to fill the lines with scripted callers and block out other voices.

Even liberal commentator Andrew Sullivan called the Obama tactics "a disgraceful attempt to intimidate journalists trying to get at the facts."

If other slimy strategies fail, Obama critics are subjected to the nuclear option ‹ the race card ‹ often by a reliably hypersensitive, sycophantic media.

Associated Press "analyst" Douglass Daniel tied himself in knots explaining how Sarah Palin's comment about Obama "palling around" with terrorists ‹ again referring to Ayers and his wife, both of whom are white ‹ "carried a racially tinged subtext."

Remember, too, the supposed racial overtones ascribed to McCain's ad comparing the accomplishment-free Obama to similarly-credentialed starlets Paris Hilton and Britney Spears ‹ again, both white.

Mentioning Obama's accounts of his own use of marijuana or cocaine is off limits because that's racist, too. And, of course, to vote for someone other than Obama is the telltale sign of racism.

If this is the treatment Obama's critics receive now ­ when he's merely a freshman senator from Illinois ­ there's plenty to fear from an Obama presidency.


Wild Thing's comment..........

In addition to what the article listed, Obama's zealots have also been known to hack into Sarah Palin's private email and threaten a Jewish group with tax trouble unless they disinvited her from their protest rally against Ahmadinejad at the UN.

Then there is Joe the Plumber, that not only made us sick and outraged it also made many democrats mad as well.

Imagine this man with control of the ENTIRE executive branch of the most powerful country in the world: That includes the Justice Department (FBI, U.S. Attorneys, etc.) the IRS, the military, the National Guards of the 57 ( Obama's count of how many States we have) states, and all the rest!

Remember how Obama treated Joe Lieberman on the floor of the Senate?

......during a Senate vote Wednesday, Obama dragged Lieberman by the hand to a far corner of the Senate chamber and engaged in what appeared to reporters in the gallery as an intense, three-minute conversation. While it was unclear what the two were discussing, the body language suggested that Obama was trying to convince Lieberman of something and his stance appeared slightly intimidating. Using forceful, but not angry, hand gestures, Obama literally backed up Lieberman against the wall, leaned in very close at times, and appeared to be trying to dominate the conversation, as the two talked over each other in a few instances.

It’s positively terrifying.

Continued prayers that Obama does not win.

It was not the Republicans that made me afraid of Obama it was and is Obama himself. He will end our way of life as we know it and replace it with his Obamunist Marxism. As far as the race card Obama is the leader in that constantly his campaign portray him as the black candidate, the African American candidate when in reality he is neither. He is a half black half white Obamination.

Thuggery and intimidation like in Chicago politics or union activities. Or in a dictatorship or religious cult. I can see signs of all of these in the way Obama behaves. The race car is also played. This man has no morals, just rhetoric.

Bob, this is an excellent statement because it is true.

"It was not the Republicans that made me afraid of Obama it was and is Obama himself."

Tom, yes you right, Obama learned well hasn't he, from his commmunist associations to living in Chicago and seeing how thug politics work there.

Barack Hussein Obama and Saddam Hussein have more then a name in common. Both are dictators and harmful to their country's well being. Saddem Hussein got his just reward. It is just a matter of time before the masses will hold Barack Hussein Obama responsible for his destruction of our country and it's Constitution.

St. Nick will get ya one for Christmas, er, for Father Frost instead since the Barackoviks will be in power! The final stage in Marx's Communist Manifesto is a classless society of supposed equality for all! Comrades one and all...
- Dr. Zhivago 1917 & 2008 and send Team Theodore to the Gulags for reprogramming?

You know what's really sad? I had a dream when my oldest daughter was just a baby that we'd be put into gulags and separated from our children and never see them again. It made me so scared I woke up crying and shaking.
I wonder if Lord Obama the most merciful (yeah sure) will make it so I never get to vote again because I'm a woman. I'm not scared of him, I'm scared of what he's going to do to my beloved America.
And didn't they try to make us scared of McCain, too?
I hate the double standard.
