O'Bama Attempting to Stifle Criticism

As I have often previously asserted, the left do not believe in free speech. They will use whatever methods they can to stiffle dissent. That is why O'Bama is trying to shut up Stanley Kurtz on WGN radio:

In a surprising attempt to stifle broadcast criticism of its candidate, the presidential campaign of freshman Illinois senator Barack Obama is organizing supporters to confront Chicago's WGN radio station for having a critic of the Illinois Democrat on its main evening discussion program.

"WGN radio is giving right-wing hatchet man Stanley Kurtz a forum to air his baseless, fear-mongering terrorist smears," Obama's campaign wrote in an e-mail sent to supporters. "He's currently scheduled to spend a solid two-hour block from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. (Wednesday night) pushing lies, distortions, and manipulations about Barack and University of Illinois professor William Ayers."

But WGN offered to let the O'Bama campaign have their say:

Christenson also stressed that the Obama campaign was invited to send a representative to appear on the show to balance the discussion of the newly-opened documents. But the campaign headquarters just down Michigan Avenue from the station refused the request. This is not the first time Obama's organization has sought to steer supporters to influence a broadcast outlet airing criticism.

So why didn't you send someone to answer these 'lies, distortions, and manipulations', Barack? There is a whiff of fascism coming from your direction.
