The Obama campaign, whether by design or religious fervor, has a very disturbing habit of seeking to silence critics rather than engage them. I suppose it does get annoying to hear people say mean things about you when you’re accustomed to having an adoring media suppress all those confusing and inconvenient facts.
The latest and most outrageous example are Obama Truth Squads in Missouri. These are government employees, including law enforcement, taking it upon themselves to hunt down and threaten people who say unflattering and “false” things about the Obama/Biden campaign. Watch the video here, including the happy-cheerful tone of the story, and tell me that doesn’t creep you out.
Fortunately the Governor of Missouri has made it clear that this is unacceptable. Will that stop the Truth Squad from threatening people and chilling speech? Considering they only have to get away with it for about 40 more days I suspect they’ll keep it up.
