OBAMA-AYERS: Free speech and the Marxist connection!

The MSM (and many online pundits) is frettin about Americans who believe Obama is a Muslim! Apparently some surveys suggest as many as 12% or more of American adults still think he is a closet Muslim, including most Muslims.

This doesn't worry me (especially since I don't support him for other reasons); what troubles me deeply is his and his wife's Marxist hearts!

You see if his heart is unclear in his renunciation of his association with unrepentant domestic terrorist Wm. Ayers, then where his heart is re Muhammad versus Christ is a moot question in this life!

At issue today are the implications of the Obama campaign's legal actions to stifle free speech.

Evan Coyne Maloney asks rhetorically, "If Senator Barack Obama becomes president, will he use the power of government to stifle speech he doesn’t like?"

In my mind someone who is willing to wield his power, privilege, and position to
use the government to smash an opponent is someone to be concerned with.
Sen. Barack Obama has launched an all-out effort to block a Republican billionaire’s efforts to tie him to domestic and foreign terrorists in a wave of negative television ads.

Obama’s campaign has written the Department of Justice demanding a criminal investigation of the "American Issues Project," the vehicle through which Dallas investor Harold Simmons is financing the advertisements.

The Obama campaign -- and tens of thousands of supporters -- also is pressuring television networks and affiliates to reject the ads. The effort has met with some success: CNN and Fox News are not airing the attacks.
According to Politico ...
The Obama campaign plans to punish the stations that air the ad financially, an Obama aide said, organizing his supporters to target the stations that air it and their advertisers. [...]

"Obama supporters have now sent more than 93,000 e-mails to the Sinclair stations that have decided to run the ad," said Obama’s spokesman Tommy Vietor. "Other stations that follow Sinclair’s lead should expect a similar response from people who don’t want the political discourse cheapened with these false, negative attacks."

It’s interesting that the Obama campaign has not yet contested any of the facts in the ad. If the ad is "an appalling lie, a disgraceful smear of the lowest kind" as the Obama campaign maintains, then demonstrate what statements are false. And then maybe sue for defamation.
Maloney nails it with this ...
The problem for Obama isn’t that the revolutionary organization run by Ayers and his wife bombed U.S. targets when Obama was a kid, the problem is that even today the only regret Ayers has is that he wasn’t successful in overthrowing the government. [More ... ]
Why the MSM is not all over this story is a mystery to most of us.

I am becoming convince that America doesn't want this cool and charismatic man near the White House, any more than I want Rev. Wright near their salvation.
