If Obama‘s, and now Biden‘s, ties to convicted fraudulent fundraiser Tony Rezko weren’t enough to show that whatever “experience” Obama might have it’s not the kind we need in Washington, the “candidate of change’s” ties to a domestic terrorist should make that point perfectly clear.
Only problem is, if you aren’t plugged in to the internet you might never hear about those ties because Obama’s campaign has launched a letter-writing campaign to stop television networks from airing the ad while calling for the DOJ to investigate the PAC behind it. (.pdf file)
Here’s the ad they don’t want you to see:
If this is how Obama treats the right to free speech of those who oppose him while he’s campaigning, what should we expect if he does get elected?
As Michelle Malkin asked: “Will they come after bloggers next?” Unfortunately, it appears the answer is YES: self-described “anarchists” at the DNC are calling for Malkin’s death as I type this.
H/T to Glenn for the video.
UPDATE: More from Jonah Goldberg:
But it runs even deeper than you might think. Consider Bernadine Dohrn, Ayers’ wife and the co-host of Obama’s career-launching fundraiser. When she was in the Weather Underground she was one of those members typically fascinated with Charles Manson (I discuss this briefly in my book). Speaking of Manson’s famous murders she exclaimed, “Dig It! First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, they even shoved a fork into a victim’s stomach! Wild!” In appreciation, her Weather Underground cell made a threefingered “fork” gesture its official salute.
UPDATE TWO: Read the American Issues Project’s response pointing out that if the DOJ investigates conservative groups and their donors, as Obama’s letter called for, then similar investigations should be carried out on liberal groups and their supporters, too.
