Liberal Censorship And Its Roots

by David Limbaugh - November 10th, 2008 - Townhall.com

Democratic prosecutors in St. Louis threatened criminal prosecution against candidate Obama's critics. In Pennsylvania, lawyers for Obama wrote intimidating letters to TV and radio stations that aired unflattering ads documenting Obama's anti-gun record. The Obama campaign complained to the Department of Justice about the American Issues Project's ad tying Obama to William Ayers. Obama supporters flooded Chicago radio station WGN with harassing calls during its interviews of conservative writers investigating Obama.

On election night, Philadelphia police arrested a man who dared to wear a McCain-Palin '08 T-shirt at an Obama celebration rally. What's scarier is that the Obama crowd reportedly chanted with joy as cops arrested the man for exercising his freedom of political expression. According to the liberal worldview, arresting someone for disagreeing with you is not censorship, but implying someone is not patriotic is.

This article is a great litany of the reasons this election portends the end of Democracy. It also portends the end of capitalism in America. That second demise will be praised by the liberal press. No matter how bad things get, the press will proclaim that the problem is not enough socialism. Anyone who disagrees will be silenced. I am uncertain exactly how the press feels about the loss of Democracy.
