Thug Watch: Governor Likens Obama’s Methods To The Sedition Act

Police State Tactics

Police State Tactics

As reported earlier, the Obama campaigns has threatened to sue media outlets in Missouri that air ads that are negative and misleading about ‘The Chosen One’. This in addition to flash-mobbing and phone spamming against David Freddoso because of his new book The Case Against Barack Obama, in addition to banning signs at rallies on taxpayer free-speech protected properties, and who can forget when they asked the Department of Justice to prosecute the American Issues Project for telling the truth.

It appears they are little concerned with American values and much prefer community agitation a la Saul Alinsky. Perhaps they will be slightly more concerned about the higher profile response of Missouri’s Governor that brings this to national attention.

This is the statement that Governor Matt Blunt’s office released:

Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouricampaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

“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 ideal 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 Missourilaw enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts – not a free society.”

Mr. Obama, I do not think it is necessary to remind that your judgment and that of your proxies and surrogates, heavily calls in to question your integrity. At this point, I’m nearly convinced, as is a large portion of America, that you are wholly unqualified to ethically manage anything. I’ve yet to discover a single person you associate with that is honorable. This leads me to conclude that you are far less than honorable yourself. Just give it a bit more time before someone decides to sue your campaign for threats and intimidation.
