When Democrats Get Desperate

So much for the Democrats being the defenders of the First Amendment. In the last couple of days, we've seen the Kerry campaign sue a broadcaster to keep embarassing material and testimony from America's bravest Vietnam veterans from airing on television, and locally, we have people defacing yard signs and committing vandalism against people who express support for George Bush.

Here are a few images of Democratic support of free speech ...


Our friend Laura sends over this update on the Minnesota vandalism that the local press has decided to ignore:

The first one was on County Road 24. Installed October 19th, destroyed October 19th.

The last 2 are front and back view of same sign. After being installed on September 18th the sign was replaced or repaired 3 times before a frame and reinforcement was built by the property owner (Upsher Smith Laboratories on 23rd Ave in Plymouth). When they were unable to bring the sign down they shredded it.

Thanks to our local DFL, the average street life of a Bush/Cheney sign barely exceeds that of a Cadillac Escalade, if that. They profess support for freedom of speech and expression, but as you can see, that only applies to approved speech and expression. Supporting GOP candidates doesn't meet their standards for approval, obviously.
