Barack Obama Truth Squads To 'Target' Opposition Voices

This post harks back to one of my earlier postings about Obama's attempt at trampling Free Speech. This one too.

One of the hallmarks of a socialist agenda is control of information. The Nazis did it back in the 1930's, the Communists have done it since the 1917 October Revolution. And now, Barack Obama is bringing that type of censorship here to the shores of America.

The big story out of Missouri is that Barack Obama has begun enlisting law enforcement personnel in targetting those who may oppose his candidacy and working to silence their criticisms of him and his socialist policies. This does not bode well for the Republic. Nothing good can come from anyone in any position of power who attempts to silence dissent either by force, or the threat of force.

According to KMOW News in St. Louis:

Senator Barack Obama's presidential campaign has asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading television ad during the presidential campaign.

Those were the exact words. They want to "target" anyone who has an opposing viewpoint to Brack Obama.

But, these self-appointed "truth-squaders" are extremely partisan in their selection of what the truth is. For example, the Obama campaign ran an ad stating that John McCain was against all stem-cell research. This is a blatant lie as John McCain has expressed support for adult stem-cell research.

Or how about all the lies the Democrats put out about Gov. Sarah Palin? When the Dems spread the lie that trig was really britol's baby? Where was the truth-squad then? When the Dems spead the lie that Gov. Palin wanted to ban books? Where was the truth-squad then?

Apparently, the Obama truth-squaders are perfectly okay with Dems telling lies.

Gov. Matt Blunt of Missouri released a statement about the situation:

What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson's thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.

Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts - not a free society.
