What Are You So Afraid Of?

One of my many problems with John McCain was his long crusade with Russ Feingold to limit political speech. That bipartisan assault on the first amendment is one of the saddest chapters in Senator McCain's legislative career. It's just the kind of trouble "reaching across the aisle" can bring us all. But I don't doubt for a minute that Senator Obama, product of the Chicago Daley Machine, loves those restrictions on free speech and would try to silence the people even more given half a chance. Many of his allies, including SanFranNan Pelosi, are on the record supporting legislation to silence free speech on the public airwaves.

WGN radio in Senator Obama's home town has been on the receiving end of the sort of mob-rule anti- first amendment position the Obama team endorses.

Chicago radio station WGN-AM is again coming under attack from the presidential campaign of Sen. Barack Obama for offering airtime to a controversial author.
It is the second time in recent weeks the station has been the target of an "Obama Action Wire" alert to supporters of the Illinois Democrat.
Monday night's target was David Freddoso.


The Tribune-owned station was flooded with calls and e-mails about an hour before an Aug. 27 interview with Stanley Kurtz, a conservative writer who examined Obama's ties to former 1960s radical William Ayers.

Certainly, unfettered criticism of The Barack of Obama shall not be allowed. Peace Be Unto Him.
Of course, there's another way to keep people quiet. Kill 'em.
