"We Are The Vermin We've Been Waiting For."

Treacher unloads on the anti-free speech tactics of the "Obama Action Wires" talking points that left wing activists are using to try to intimidate opponents and overwhelm radio station phone systems.

It's the same oppressive mindset that is behind other intimidation tactics, such as the release and abuse of the Palin family's phone number, the hacking of Sarah Palin's email account, and the unrelenting "opposition research." They now go far beyond debating the qualifications and judgment of candidates, and now have adopted tactics meant to bully, slander, smear and humiliate the candidates, their spouses, and even minor children of candidates.

Today's progressive radicals still have the mindset of Bill Ayers, they've merely found new tactics to employ.

Bristol Palin is being harassed by a petty celebrity trying to goad her into having an abortion. Others, having discovered family telephone numbers, have left obscene messages demanding nude photos.

How long until unhinged "progressive" activists target Willow Palin, a 14 year-old girl, with unfounded rumors designed to sully her reputation? (Answer: They already have).

How about elementary school-aged Piper? When are they going to insist she's being molested, or is deviant in some way?

How about baby Trig? Many pro-abortionists are already irate the Down's Syndrome child was allowed to live.

What is next, Obamaphiles?

I shudder at the thought.

Update: The bullying tactics of the official Obama campaign revealed:

A message goes out over Barack Obama's Web site with the names, phone numbers and e-mails of editors and producers foolish enough to host Obama critics. With Mr. Obama's extensive digital following, and his extensive fund-raising and contact lists, shutting up the Democratic nominee's critics with a fraction of Mr. Obama's millions of supporters is relatively simple. The digital legions plug phone lines, crash servers and intimidate the advertisers of these media outlets. This must be another instance of the "new" politics that Mr. Obama frequently talks about.

These are just the official tactics admitted to by the Obama campaign. It kind of makes you wonder what they're up to that they won't admit.

Headlining Drudge now:

What astonishes me is the astonishment over all this (not here, but elsewhere in the conservative world). This is leftism down through history. It never changes. Never. But what astonishes most of all is how slow McCain and his people are to get it, to see this election as the violent break from all the old rules of conduct that it is. He's still playing the game like the clubman clinging to his Marquis of Queensbeery. Time's running out, Senator.

Any Obamite who gets in my face will get an accidental finger in the eye. I am not defenseless nor do I suffer fools well.

Obama, you fascist, just pull off the mask, already.

We know you're a Marxist and that the Black Theology ideas motivate your policies.

If one of your rabid sycophants gets in my face, I will gladly b-slap the stupid out of them.

I long to see the passion in the hippie who cries out to me (or anyone) "Obama believes in the Second Ammendment!" Oy. But I hope some Obot out there does have the stones to actually discuss things. You can be certain of their utter ignorance of any facts regarding these issues and it would be, as they say, a teachable moment. We don't see too many of those.

The media is still the bigger story. The way they went after Palin exposes the nature of the left more than the cyber people, because the media is supposed to be main stream and professional and unbias - which Americans have known for some time is BS - but with Palin, the full extent and ugliness of it has been exposed clearly.

We can also see the results of Bush Derangment Syndrome. Building up that much hate against Bush was likely to spill over past him. It is the new form of politics from the left.

In the 1980s, the conservatives successfully make the word liberal into a four-letter one, but it did not have this type of visceral hate to it. It was much more about ideology and political philosophy than hate.

What we have now is personal and group hate. It isn't good for anybody.

A perfect example of why Conservative attempts at "Bi-Partisanship" with Leftists is always doomed to failure - the Left is like Islamists - they only ever work to their own advantage.

Looks like the left has learned some things from their Islamist allies.

gods of a poxed doxy! these people are unspeakably ugly, are there no depths to which they won't sink? if there was any thought in my mind that might have led me to vote for obama it is gone now. there is no way i would associate myself with such unreasoning hatred. mccain/palin will have my vote most surely, if for no other reason than to counter the obscenity that spews from the obamamaniacs.

All the signs of the Dems and libs in complete desperation mode.

I agree with what is said about the left, but it also applies to the right. Like any and all extremists & fundamentalists, no one else can be right except you. And this kind of thought in a pluralistic society dooms America. It goes contrary to the ideals of democracy in this great republic. Thank God the American majority is centrist, who can think for themselves!!!

The other day an Obama supporter at work, with whom I've usually had a congenial relationship, said to me as I walked into his office, "Hello, my right-wing friend."

I saw that coming, fortunately, so I didn't express much surprise. I just carried out my business with him and ignored his sarcastic salutation. Like the schoolyard bullies they are, they want to provoke you into a confrontation because it's good entertainment for them.

I don't play that game.

See if he likes, "Hello, my Marxist dupe."

I agree with a previous comment, this is what they do. Lie and cheat and bully. Were there any lies about Bush I or II, or Reagan, or their wives, or anyone even remotely associated with the GOP, or anyone who doesn't worship the Donkey?

Then again, there are plenty of stories circulating about members of the left-wing. I believe most of them. :D
