The left's brownshirts

It should come as no surprise the left's call for tolerance only extends to those that agree with them.

I mentioned a couple of days ago that Obama's lawyers had asked the DOJ to investigate the group that produced this ad.

After not get an "as you wish" from the Justice Department, they sent a second letter.

Well, the American Issues Project has decided that two can play that game. If the DOJ foolishly decides that policing political speech is a good idea, the AIP has presented them with the names of a few Democrat donors they might want to look into to -- the exercise being a non-partisan one.

On a parallel track, Obama's minions are being directed to complain to radio station WGN about National Review reporter being booked to appear on one of their shows.

"It is absolutely unacceptable that WGN would give a slimy character assassin like Kurtz time for his divisive, destructive ranting on our public airwaves. At the very least, they should offer sane, honest rebuttal to every one of Kurtz's lies," it continues.

The show went on anyway, as National Review's Andrew McCarthy notes here, here and here.

If this is how they act when they have only persuasion, imagine how the Department of Justice might behave when Obama's got his people making the decisions.


The @sdutOpinion Editorial pages used to be fairly mainstream conservative. When I applied for a letters editor opening there in the mid-00s, I was asked if there's an editorial I wouldn't write. I replied: a pro-abortion one. 1/

Supreme Court: “The Second Amendment is not a second class right. States can’t use subjective criteria when issuing carry permits.”
California: “But what if we added in illegal viewpoint discrimination, and violated the First Amendment at the same time?”
