Obama Bans Jewish Free Speech

Obama Campaign Against Free Speech in the Jewish Community

The Obama campaign is using every tool at its disposal to ban the Republican Jewish Coalition from speaking to the public. My friend Omri Ceren of Mere Rhetoric has posted an extensively researched and meticulously cited expose on how this tactic is part and parcel of the Obama campaign's attack on dissent and free speech.

Obama shill Mel Levine has never been shy about throwing around his AIPAC credentials. That's a good strategy given how his pro-Obama arguments are mindbogglingly stupid, but it does beg a question: given how the Obama campaign is on the attack against AIPAC, aren't Levine's credentials kind of a bad thing? Maybe someone should ask him about that. Not a Republican though, because they're not allowed:

What actually happened is that the Obama campaign demanded that the CIC [Council of Israeli Community in Los Angeles] ban Greenfield from the debate as a condition for their participation. They're doing the same thing all over the country: no preconditions for meeting Iran but thuggish demands before they'll sit down with American Jews. And they're getting really good at this game: have someone spend months organizing a non-partisan event, pull their people out right at the end, and then shriek about partisanship. The only thing left is for them to threaten legal action. Then it would be a perfect replay of how they detonated the anti-Ahmadinejad rally.

Meanwhile, the Democrats are busy trying to destroy Joe the Plumber. You see he had the chuitzpah to ask Obama a question.
