Obama campaign threatens litigation against anyone who criticizes.

The Obama campaign is now threatening to sue television stations who run an anti-Obama ad from the NRA. Not only are the threats unethical and possibly illegal, John Kerry already tried the same thing and it didn’t work.

The Obama camp has been threatening television and radio stations to keep them from airing anti-Obama ads.

The latest target is the NRA and stations in Pennsylvania.

Earlier this week, the National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund released a series of radio and television spots to educate gun owners and sportsmen about Barack Obama’s longstanding anti-gun record. In response to the NRA-PVF ads, a clearly panicked Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) are doing everything they can to hide Obama’s real record by mounting a coordinated assault on the First Amendment.

They have gone to desperate and outrageous lengths to try to silence your NRA by bullying media outlets with threats of lawsuits if they run NRA-PVF’s ads.

The Obama camp is particularly angry with an NRA ad entitled “Hunter” which lays out Obama’s record on gun control.

The Obama campaign has been waging an all out assault on the 1st amendment. In St. Louis, MO, two high profile prosecutors went on KMOV and threatened “to take action” against anyone who criticizes Obama. They called themselves the “Obama truth squad.”

St. Louis attorney and CofCC CEO Gordon L. Baum immediately called one of the prosecutors. The prosecutor first became enraged, then denied the existence of the television footage all together.

The St. Louis CofCC wrote an article about it, which was e-mailed to radio talk show hosts around the country, including Rush Limbaugh. Rush immediately picked up the story and now it’s big news.

The St. Louis CofCC are known as defenders of free speech. Recently the CofCC filed a lawsuit against three local libraries who ran “filtering” software that blocked right-wing websites. As a result of the lawsuit, thousands of libraries across the country no longer use this software (some of which comes straight from the ADL!).
