Obama – Community Organizer Struggles With First Amendment

Obama: Fox News is ‘destructive’ to America – CNN Political Ticker – CNN.com Blogs

Fox News a target for Obama again:

Fox News pushes “a point of view that I disagree with. It’s a point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country that has a vibrant middle class and is competitive in the world,” Obama said.

So when the press is in your back pocket and buries stories about Rev. Wright or exalts your community organizing experience, you’re okay with that. But if any dare to oppose your political views they are destructive to America.

Pick one – struggling economy, 10% unemployment, illegal immigration, nuclear Iran, Euro meltdown, trade war with China… any of these are worthy of presidential focus. But to repeatedly take on Fox News is essentially saying you have a problem with the First Amendment.

It is so painfully obvious that the first African American president is merely a community organizer struggling with issues above his pay grade.


Yale University: Blame-the-Speaker Approach | The Volokh Conspiracy

The Volokh Conspiracy – Yale University Press Buys Into the Blame-the-Speaker Approach

Yale Univesity self-censored itself by not showing the illustrations in a book about the cartoons of Mohamed that incited violence a few years ago. Their reason boils down to the same sad “didn’t want to offend anyone” logic.

This from the comments:

Just another case of liberal academia showing it’s true ‘backbone’… They’re real good at yelling and screaming against the USA, when they know the police will be there to PROTECT them, not SILENCE them, but let there be the slightest actual danger or even hint of such, and they run like the scared rabbits they are.

Well said.
