Remember George W. Bush's "Free-Speech" zones in Crawford, TX? They're Baaaaaccck....
Obama Campaign in South Carolina Causes Row Over Free Speech Zone | The Progressive Magazine since 1909
“Obama, Please Oppose a Nuclear Dump in S.C.,” one sign read.
“Obama, Don’t Let S.C. Become Yucca Mountain,” said another.
“Barack: Stop Supporting Plans to Dump High Level Nuclear Waste in South Carolina,” said the third.

“A couple of people with the Obama campaign said, ‘You can’t take those signs in.’ And we said, ‘Oh, we know, we’re going to stand outside.’ Then the Obama staff told us we had to leave the property,” Minerd says.
“I said, ‘This is public property, and I should be allowed to be here.’ But they repeated their line, and added: ‘If you want to hold your signs, you can go to the Budweiser sign, which is on the Budweiser building three blocks away.’ So I said, ‘Oh, you’ve got a free speech zone set up just like the Bush Administration.’ I couldn’t believe they were acting like Bush.”

I am curious to know how Obama supporters feel about Obama supressing free speech. It's odd that whenever Obama is called out directly on very serious issues like this one, they are uncharacteristically silent. Buyer's remorse perhaps?

Another example of Obama's attempt to supress Free Speech and differing opinions:
Obama Campaign Abusive to Blue Dogs

"Wednesday a local Blue Dog Democratic party official was contacted by an Obama campaign worker asking for a donation. The local party official explained her position, and expressed concern that Obama was getting too much of his support from such leftist “grass roots” organizations as Democracy for America and Daily Kos. These organizations have gone out of their way to attack local party members and undermine local parties who don’t support their radical agenda.

The Blue Dog told the campaign worker that she would not support Obama as long as he supports these organizations. At that, the Obama campaign worker became angry and very abusive towards the Blue Dog."

I don't need to. I have experienced the Obama cult's desire to suppress differing opinions first hand and in person. There are thousands of examples right here on City-Data. Furthermore, I don't believe that The Progressive Magazine qualifies as merely a "blog".

Of course I am! However, I am not afraid to express my personal experiences with these people for fear of childish repercussions. Have you taken note lately of just how high most Obama supporters "reps" are vs most Hillary supporters? LOL

Really, I care deeply about people who in my opinion are radical cultists believe.

Lol, and aren't the reasons you get funny! One person apparently bothered to use TWO separate accounts to downrate me twice in a row, but in a dead giveaway forgot to change their reasons to "Your (sic) a bad American."

Not only does this have nothing to do with freedom of speech, I've got no problems with it. For one, its a supporter, showing how you've truly been reverted to grasping at straws. Secondly, considering how the Bush Dogs enabled so many Bush admin excesses the past 7 years, I don't blame an Obama supporter for giving them the scorn they richly deserve.
