Free Speech – Not If You Criticize The Chosen One

Well, what did you expect?  The whole push by Democrats (aided by McCain unfortunately) has been to criminalize conservatives.  So when an ad that links the Messiah to an unrepentant terrorist (see below) what is the Democrat response?  Well threaten to have people arrested:

In a letter to station managers, Obama campaign lawyer Robert Bauer wrote: “Your station is committed to operating in the public interest, an objective that cannot be satisfied by accepting for compensation material of such malicious falsity.”

Bauer also wrote to Deputy Assistant Attorney General John C. Keeney, noting that the ad is a “knowing and willful attempt to evade the strictures of federal election law.”

I mean we can’t have people pointing out the fact that The Annointed One knowingly associates with an unrepentant terrorist can we?  So tell us oh Wonderous One – what is fasle about this ad?

In the Obama campaign’s own response ad, an announcer states: “With all our problems, why is John McCain talking about the 60s, trying to link Barack Obama to radical Bill Ayers. McCain knows Obama denounced Ayers’ crimes, committed when Obama was just 8 years old.”

So a non-denial denial.  America has lots of problems, this is old news, I was just 8, I denounced their actions.

Of course, you decided to launch your political campaign for the State Senate from this unrepentant terrorists living room (and his wife is worse by the way).  You continue to work with this ultra-liberal twit who thinks that they didn’t bomb enough.  Who was on the front page of the NYT on 9/11 boasting about how he still believed in his cause.  A guy who was recently photographed like this:

Bill Ayers takes his stand

Bill Ayers takes his stand

“It seems they protest a bit too much,” American Issues Project spokesman Christian Pinkston said. “They’re going all of these routes — through threats, intimation — to try to thwart the First Amendment here because they don’t have an argument on merit.”

Bill Ayers – Unrepentant and Friend of Barry

I just keep wondering why this traitor isn’t somewhere like JAIL:

William Ayers, who was a founder of the 1960s and 1970s radical group the Weather Underground, told FOX News correspondent James Rosen in a candid 2004 interview that he still believed he was “on the side of justice” years after the group’s wave of attacks.

In the interview, conducted three years after the September 11 attacks, Ayers argued the U.S. government had carried out “many other acts of terror … even recently, that are comparable,” and claimed he and his bomb-planting comrades were “restrained” in their actions.

See kids?  The US government has carried out many other acts of terror, so blowing up buildings and being a smelly hippie is OK.  And is he sorry about what he did?

Explaining how he became a leader of the radical 1960s antiwar group, the Weathermen (and its subsequent fugitive incarnation, the Weather Underground), Ayers was unrepentant about the group’s planting of bombs in the Capitol, the Pentagon, and other sites. “I think I was on the side of justice and ultimately it will be seen that way,” Ayers said. “I don’t think our move was so much towards violence.

Yes, its not violent to blow up the building housing the legislature of your government.  And after all, they didn’t want to actually stand up in public for what they believed.  They might have to defend themselves:

“We didn’t want to we looked at the conspiracy trial [of the Chicago Seven], which we were very close to, and we didn’t want to spend two years defending ourselves. That seemed like a complete waste of energy and time. And so we said to ourselves, ‘What are we going to do?’… We saw the movement either being targeted like [Black Panther leader] Fred Hampton and shot in the head, or targeted like the Chicago Seven, dragged into federal court, where they had to spend zillions of resources and energy and people-hours defending themselves against this completely corrupt government and this completely corrupt Justice Department on this completely corrupt charge.

“So, yeah, we, we found that an appalling alternative. And so we set about building a clandestine organization. And the whole point was to survive them and then possibly to take the fight to them against the war and against, against empire, generally …
