Where Is Obama's Defense Of First Amendment Rights

I've not written much of anything about the increasing number of signs and billboards attacking Barack Obama and the Democrats. After all, I've made it quite clear that I'm an opponent of the man and his policies, and so am generally in support of the message in question -- and even if I were not, I am a supporter of the First Amendment and believe that political speech in opposition to the regime in Washington is fully protected under the US Constitution.

I was, however, planning to write about this sign that appeared recently, which I did find offensive for reasons which should be obvious.

However, I'm not going to write that condemnatory post now -- and am instead wondering why Barack Obama has not come out in defense of the billboard, which has been removed in the wake of death threats.

Well that didn't take long.

The controversial Colorado billboard depicting President Obama as a suicide bomber, gangster, Mexican bandit and a gay man has been taken down -- just days after the sign was erected and slammed nation-wide for being racist.

A local Tea Party group had planned to rally around the sign in Grand Junction on Friday, but when they arrived, it had been taken down.

Those who know the owner of the billboard told a local NBC News affiliate that he and his wife were receiving death threats. The person who commissioned the piece is not yet known.

Friends of the owner said he decided to take down the billboard because he was receiving harassing calls.

"He got a lot of calls out of his place of business that he said he was fine with. When things got out of hand and people started calling his wife, that's when he decided to go ahead and take it down," said Blake Brueggeman, owner of Integrity Auto. Brueggeman leases property from sign's owner.

Now I want to know Barack Obama's position on this sign and its public display.

After all, he was quite willing to insert himself in the middle of the Ground Zero Mosque dispute with a ringing defense of the First Amendment right of those who plan on building the offensive structure and a denunciation of those who reject its location.

Why won't he speak out noting the First Amendment rights of those who own, designed, and paid for the sign and the unAmerican nature of the opposition who engaged in harassment and threats against those who were engaged in speech they found offensive?

Could it be that the only time Barack Obama believes the First Amendment is operative is when he is in support of the message it is being used to communicate, while he is more than willing to see the suppression of expression he dislikes -- or even actively participate in its suppression, as he did in the case of the proposed Quran burning? And if that is the case, isn't he in violation of his oath of office?

Comments on Where Is Obama's Defense Of First Amendment Rights

What's wrong with this - Obama is an outspoken, admitted Muslim who has pretty much bowed to Islamic extremism/terrorism, he pretty much not only condones illegal immigration from Mexico, but gladly welcomes it in spite of the proven damage it has and will continue to do, he is in lock-step with the New Black Panthers and Black Liberation Theology (which both are, despite past rights issues, detrimental to the stability of our nation's social balance), and the guy wants to give homosexuals the right to do whatever they damn well please despite the majority of American's opposition and more importantly our nation's Judeo-Christian heritage which has no place for homosexuality! Bravo to those who commissioned and displayed this billboard - it's truth, ladies and gentleman. If we can't handle the truth, than we've lost out balls (which we as a nation, though individually many of us haven't, but as a country we're to "politically correct" to use them).
