Sheriff Investigated after Using Barack Obama’s Middle Name

October 9, 2008

 Barack Obama and his campaign have an ever growing list of people that they are trying to silence because they dare to disagree with Barack Obama.

 We had the story of Obama sending out “truth squads” in Missouri to threaten and intimidate those who run television ads that the campaign disagrees with. He has actually convinced some members of law enforcement to join him in shutting down free speech in Missouri, to the chagrin of the governor, who said the following:

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

 We then learned about a case where the Obama campaign is pressuring television stations to stop running ads that are sponsored by the NRA because he doesn’t like what they are saying. He threatened their FCC licence if they do not comply.

 Using those two examples it is not hard to imagine that the Obama campaign had some involvement with the anti-Obama writer who was detained in Kenya while on a fact finding mission. The writer was on his way to a press conference to reveal what he had found out about Barack Obama when he was arrested and detained by soldiers. Barack Obama previously funneled money to the Odinga campaign and now that Odinga is president is it that much of a stretch to assume that perhaps Obama called in a favor?

 Which then brings us to this latest case of Obama’s campaign trying to shut up the opposition in a Stalinist fashion. His only transgression, he used Barack Obama middle name in a speech.

“I am on duty 24/7 and 365 whether in or out of uniform. Like every other elected official, I am aware of from President to Governor to State Representatives, etc. We engage in political activities whether for ourselves as candidates or for others. As of this writing, I am unaware of having done anything to generate all this attention other than using the senator’s full name.”

 Feds are now investigating him to see if this was a case of him using his authority to influence an election. Apparently Obama is so sensitive of his middle name that is is no longer acceptable for someone to utter it in public.

 Talk about using authority to influence an election. Isn’t that what Barack Obama is doing by continually trying to silence the opposition? Is this a precursor to how Barack Obama is going to operate as president? I believe it is, and it is a scary thought. If Barack Obama is already trying to silence through intimidation and threats those that oppose him what lengths will he go to as president when he actually has some power?

 Reinstituting the fairness doctrine is a good start, and rest assured he will start there, but it will only be the beginning. After conservative talk radio and blogs are shut down what’s next? Government run television? Government run radio? Where does it stop?

 Barack Obama has shown a willingness not to debate the opposition but to silence them. Evidently he feels that because he is right that if you oppose him not only are you wrong but you don’t deserve a voice. You don’t deserve a platform to voice your opinions. He will decide what can and cannot be said.

 We have already seen many cases where the left cries racism when people try to speak out against Obama. Rather than debate what is being said they try to discredit you through illigitimate claims of racism. This is nothing but another attempt at silencing rather than debating.

I end this post with this little gem from the book 1984; “Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought?”

 Replace the word “Newspeak” with the words “political correctness.”

 That is where we are in America.

    In response to the sheriff’s remarks, what then was the purpose of using Obama’s middle name? Please note, that another announcer made use of his middle name as well. The use of one’s middle name is not part of normal conversation. It simply goes against the norm.

    You cannot say that this was an innocent mistake. This is part of a character assassination being orchestrated by the McCain campaign as I have noted in an article already.

    I am not saying it was an innocent mistake, I am sure it was done intentionally. But does using a person’s middle name warrent the feds swooping in to investigate? I don’t think so.

    If the partisan roles were reversed, you would be wanting an investigation. The guy made the statements in uniform which, in my opinion, was his mistake.

    However, if there is a possibility that a law had been violated and assuming that there has not been any legal precedent saying what he did was not illegal, then yes, he should be investigated.

    If he doesn’t like his middle name then to bad. He’s running for President of the United States, he should be under some scrutiny. I certainly think anyone with just an ounce of common sense can see what is to come. I personally don’t want to chance it……..McCain / Palin all the way!!!

    Terrant, you may be right, but I am not 100% partisan (maybe 95%), I haven’t attacked Oliver Stone for calling his movie “W”. 🙂
    And I did call the president “Benedict Arnold” in a post yesterday, that has to count for something.

    Perhaps more revealing than the fact that he won’t provide his birth certificate is the fact that he posted a false one on his website.
