Shutting Down Criticism

Aren't liberals supposed to be dedicated supporters of free speech? Oh wait, that's right- only where their speech is concerned. If you happen to hold an opposing position however...well then...the view seems to be shut up.

After trying to use the Justice Department to silence a group which aired a factually correct TV ad, the Obama camp is now hounding a journalist.

They are shamelessly attacking National Review investigative journalist Stanley Kurtz — one of conservatism’s most thoughtful and penetrating writers on academic and educational affairs. Kurtz has been at the forefront probing Obama’s relationships with left-wing ideologues. It was his public information request and public call for help that led to the University of Illinois - Chicago finally releasing tons of files that shed light on the Obama/Ayers working relationship. The Obama camp is condemning Kurtz in harsher terms than it ever condemned the terrorist Ayers. Kurtz has been attacked now as a “right-wing hatchet man” and “slimy character assassin.”

Anyone else think of Obama branding those questioning his stance on infanticide "liars"? You know, the people who had their facts right all along.
