Obama Resorts to Tyrant Tactics to Suppress Revealing Ad

The Obama machine is going to great lengths to prevent people from seeing this ad:

From AP:

Obama not only aired a response ad to the spot linking him to William Ayers, but he sought to block stations [from airing] the commercial by warning station managers and asking the Justice Department to intervene. The campaign also planned to compel advertisers to pressure stations that continue to air the anti-Obama commercial.

Kind of reminds you of his fellow socialist Hugo Chavez, doesn’t he?

Supposedly right-wing Fox News has joined CNN in refusing to run the ad, but it has still been seen in some local markets, mainly on stations owned by Sinclair Communications. Enraged to see their Messiah exposed to normal voters as an anti-American radical, Obamunists have been deluging the stations with nasty emails. Growls Obama spokesthug 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.

Unable to dispute the accuracy of the ad, Obamatrons have been reduced to whining that Obama was only a little kid when his unrepentant mentor Ayers committed his vilest crimes against the America he so hates.

The American Issues Project, which created the ad, responds to the banana republic attempts to suppress it (PDF):

Surely we have not come to a point where the government and its agencies are used to protect presidential candidates from citizens’ speech, essentially destroying the very purpose, meaning and historical essence of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Ironically, if the media is able to install Obama in the White House, the free speech it relies on will be among the first things to be Changed, as his ham-fisted attempts to bully media outlets make obvious.
