Some people see it, but not those who get their news from ABC or MSNBC or the New York Times. The American Left and their fellow-travelers in the media are mounting an all-out putsch to secure the victory of Barack Obama, and a "New Order" more to their liking, and they’re not about to let something as petty as the Bill of Rights stand in their way, let alone simple notions of fairness and human decency. A few ominous facts:
1) Executive officers at various levels of state and local government in Missouri, at the behest of the Obama campaign, are threatening legal action against people who make “false” charges against Obama.
2) Obama’s lawyers are trying to block the NRA ads that are being run in various swing states.
3) Democrat Secretary of State for Ohio, Jennifer Brunner, is trying to disqualify thousands of absentee ballots cast for McCain.
4) Democrats continue their open attempts at voter-registration fraud through their alliance with ACORN, and Senate and House Democrats even want to offer these crooks an enormous slice of the bailout pie.
5) The nutroot blogs circulate scurrilous rumors, stories and viral videos which the MSM dutifully scoop up and turn into headlines.
6) The Department of Justice seems to be changing the focus of its enforcement of civil rights law in a way that threatens protected, legal activity (unfortunately, we’ve got Bush to blame for this one).
You know, we either laugh or shake our heads sadly at the erosion of individual liberty in Great Britain. Why should we be so smug?
Update: Currency Lad finds yet another example.
