Obama’s Netroots Supporters Continue "Blog Burning"
Tell me once more how progressives love free speech.

Its the same message Concrete Bob received and Rosemary posted for him.
This is bulls**t as it appears that someone does not approve of the idea of free speech especially when the speech doesn’t conform to their ideas.
Online activists thought to be loyal to Barack Obama are once against using Google’s software tools to target rival political blogs for elimination as spam blogs. This occurred earlier this year when Democratic bloggers with a preference for Hillary Clinton also found themselves locked out of their own blogs, all because of spurious and apparently orchestrated claims that these blogs are spam blogs. Pro-Obama activists were blamed for those attempts at censorship as well.
Like John at Argghhh!, I don’t think for a second that the Obama campaign has any official knowledge of this attempt to hamstring or terminate rival political viewpoints, but as Obama once won an election by exercising procedural tricks to have his rivals thrown off the ballot, it is certainly in line with the kind of character he has displayed in the past.
