Never Mind the “3 A.M. Call to the White House”; It’s the 3 A.M. Knock on the Door At My House That I’m Worried About

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.

Why are the union members so bent on voting for people that are eliminating their jobs? WTF?

C.L., he gets away with it because it's technically a "private" event, financed through the DNC.

Oh, and because the lefties are a bunch of ^&#$^&(#$! hypocrites.

Paco, you are spot on about the erosion of our own individual liberties, and it's a trend across the political spectrum.

One can, perhaps, apply the law of unintended consequences to some of these actions, but not to the cynical attempts to exploit those loopholes. And much is deliberate from start to finish.

But The Mighty O! is indeed leading the pack on this one.

"Change we need", my arse.

I've been watching these scary developments for a little while now, and really starting to worry over this election.

CL, Obama gets away with it because the MSM are aiding and abetting. Why, I don't know, unless it's because most of them have been thoroughly indoctrinated in our higher institutions of "learning", and because most of them live affluent lives safely insulated (so they believe) from the everyday concerns of average Americans.
