Obama Issues A Directive To His Obamabots

The Obama campaign encouraged their Obamabots to disrupt a radio show once again because of the person being interviewed on the show.

Others have covered the story, so the background from a few people discussing it.

Hot Air:

David Freddoso attempted to appear on Milt Rosenberg’s WGN radio show last night, and just as when Stanley Kurtz tried to talk on the same show, the Barack Obama campaign organized a disruption of the show. The campaign sent out an e-mail to supporters in the area sliming Freddoso as an “extreme” hate monger, a “smear merchant”, and attempted to silence him despite Rosenberg having an Obama surrogate on the show:

More from CT:

"The author of the latest anti-Barack hit book is appearing on WGN Radio in the Chicagoland market tonight, and your help is urgently needed to make sure his baseless lies don't gain credibility," an e-mail sent Monday evening to Obama supporters reads.

The Obama campaign issued it's directive to their Obamabots, then gave them specific talking points of what script to use. Then told them to report back to them.

Guy Benson gives us an account of what happened:

Well, here we go again.

Last night, WGN’s studio lines were bombarded with irate calls from Obama supporters in response to yet another interview on “Extension 720,” hosted by the venerable Milt Rosenberg. This time the offending “card-carrying member of the right-wing smear machine” was National Review’s own David Freddoso, author of The Case Against Barack Obama.

Mother, May I Sleep With Treacher gives an amusing analysis:

Note: The official Obama campaign website is doing this. They're screaming about McCain running the sleaziest campaign ever, while they're actively trying to stifle dissent against Obama. Not refuting it; not ridiculing it; not even engaging with it. Trying to keep it from being said at all. If this is like last time, they won't even send a campaign rep to the show, which is just down the street from their HQ. No, just send in the phone zombies.

And they're getting away with this. I guess because if you have a problem with it, you're a racist?

Can you imagine the front-page stories all over the world if McCain tried this crap? Hell, if Palin even listens to the radio, the next day she has somebody in the New York Times analyzing her car presets for sinister intent.

I've got my Amazon Kindle right here and I just downloaded Freddoso's book. While I still can. If Obama's so scared of it that he's pulling these kinds of thug tactics, I'm voting with my wallet. And now, I'm sitting down to read.

Last but not least, Michelle Malkin shows us that Obama's last attempt to hide information he didn't want the public to know about, failed miserably when the DOJ refused to stifle his critics for him.

Asked directly during a panel discussion at the PLI conference whether he would approve of a case against a hypothetical contributor to a Section 527 group who gave a seven-figure donation based on a request to help or harm the prospects of a particular presidential candidate, Donsanto said, “No.”

Definitely read Malkin's whole piece for the whole statement.

Since I am using Malkin for statement showing the DOJ refusal to help Obama intimidate conservatives, I might as well honor her request on that same piece when she asks people to pass around the ad that Barack Obama tried so hard to stop people from seeing.

Thanks Michelle!!

Okay we are caught up on Obama's latest attempt to stifle criticisms against him.
