Dirty Tricks?

According to Warner Todd Huston, a writer on Newsbusters, Google has frozen or shutdown at least 7 anti-Obama blogs; most of them written by supporters of Senator Hillary Clinton who now support Senator McCain. Most of the blogs belong to a group of bloggers called the Just Say No Deal coalition. Rumor has it (Mr Huston was unable to confirm the rumor; perhaps he needs to go to Senator Obama’s rumor control website) that several Obama supporters accessed the Just Say No Deal coalition website and in a “dirty tricks” move constantly hit the “mark as spam” link so that Google’s system of finding spam blogs would trigger and freeze the targeted blog. If the rumor is true; it sure says a lot about how Obama supporters approach the concept of free speech. It’s something that applies to anyone who agrees with them; but certainly wouldn’t apply to anyone who disagrees. I guess when you can’t win based on your programs, your principles, and your leadership, you need to resort to “dirty tricks” to silence your opposition

there are some people who think free speach only applies to them. If your opinion differs from there's free speach doesn't apply to you... and that is one thing that scares the ---- out of me about Obama becoming our next president..
