Gov. Blunt Statement on Obama Campaign’s Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

JEFFERSON CITY – Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“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 Missouri campaign 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.”

Warning: don’t watch this before bedtime


Here’s the link to the original KMOV.com video about the Barack Obama “Truth Squad.” You think I’m f***ing kidding, don’t you? — Governor Blunt wishes I were, but this is what he’s talking about in his press release. The Truth Squad is comprised of your elected officials: prosecutors and sheriffs. They will respond immediately to any divisive ads or character attacks. You still think I’m kidding. I wish.

“Veee are zeee truths sqvad. Veee are your local leaders from across zeee state and veee have vays to take care of you. Veee villl be vatching YOU and listening TOO. Veee vill make sure you tell zeee truths, OR ELSE.”

The thought police are coming. The thought police are coming. Shiver me timbers. ‘Scuse me, can we have Hillary back now?

  1. This really has to be spread around…I’ve got links to related stories on this in the weekly roundup… Are these people wearing brownshirts? I find this utterly frightening…I thought Bush was bad?

    The OJ trial has a new twist…you can see where the media will be going with this if he is convicted….

  2. Great job, LadyBoomer NYC! I put up something on The Confluence about this today.

    I think all members of the PUMAsphere, and the rightwingers as well, are doing a spontaneous blogswarm on this story. It’s absolutely unbelievable.

  3. When they began to target PUMAs no one believed us nor took us seriously. I hope people are taking notice now and see that A LEADER THAT CAN’T BE QUESTIONED MAKES FOR A QUESTIONABLE LEADER!

  4. First of all the initial poster is frickin hilarious. I’m going to steal it.

    Secondly, I think that what these prosecutors are doing is illegal. They are specifically targeting ads that show Obama in an unfavorable light, not ads doing the same to McCain. In other words, by taking sides their actions are politically motivated. I read somewhere where the Governor would consider taking legal action against them if they followed through on their claims.

    Truth Squad My Ass!

  5. You’re absolutely right–socialism in its worst shape is coming to America if Obama gets elected.

    And the worst part is that many people who will end up voting for Obama, wouldn’t know what they are really voting for. They don’t go to the blogs like yours, they don’t read long data-rich threads, they don’t watch scary YouTube kids-singing videos. We keep going down in polls because people listen to the huge propaganda machine–and take that BS at face value. What we need is an arsenal of conversation changers. These attention grabbers that make an impact in 5 sec. And THEN those whose opinions still can be changed may start reading more. Obama’s side if excellent in this. They have pros working around the clock on all sorts of visuals that go straight to the emotions level, bypassing the logic. Just take a look at this site to know what I’m talking about.

    Can you name a single memorable anti-Obama poster that speaks to the center-leaning Democratic voter? I can’t. And to expose who Obama really is we need some of that. With my new blog and Facebook page I’ve started a new repository to fill this gap and hope it will take off and will be used and extended by others. Your comments and suggestions are more than welcome.
