Obama has already made a complaint to the Justice Dept. because an organization dared to bring up his association with Bill Ayers. They also smeared Stanley Kurtz, a man who dared to delve into Obama's days with Ayers serving on the Annenberg Project - and the $100M they were given in gov't grants that ended up kinda disappearing.
The ACLU apparently doesn't care. Free speech doesn't apply to Conservatives and Republicans apparently. That's what the whole "Fairness Doctrine" is about, right? John F. Kennedy and FDR aggressively used that doctrine to silence Republican opposition and prevent them from developing any kind of conduit to get their message out.
Historically the Democrats have a very bad record on free speech over the last 100 years. Woodrow Wilson threw opponents into jail quite often. FDR suppressed the opposition from speaking as did JFK, LBJ, etc. Looks like Obama takes after them in attempting to block any kind of criticism whatsoever.

On Monday, Obama demanded that the Justice Department stop TV stations from airing a documented, accurate independent ad spotlighting Obama’s longtime working relationship with unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers. Obama summoned his followers to bombard stations, many of them owned by conservative-leaning Sinclair Communications, with 93,000 e-mails to squelch the commercial.
On Tuesday, the Obama campaign sent another letter to the Justice Department demanding investigation and prosecution of American Issues Project, the group that produced the Ayers ad, as well as Dallas billionaire Harold Simmons, who funded it.
And on Wednesday, Obama exhorted his followers to sabotage the WGN radio show of veteran Chicago host and University of Chicago Professor Milt Rosenberg. Why? Because he invited National Review writer Stanley Kurtz to discuss his investigative findings about Obama’s ties to Ayers and the underwhelming results of their collaboration on a left-wing educational project sponsored by the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. The “Obama Action Wire” supplied Rosenberg’s call-in line and talking points like this:
Tell WGN that by providing Kurtz with airtime, they are legitimizing baseless attacks from a smear-merchant and lowering the standards of political discourse. . . . It is absolutely unacceptable that WGN would give a slimy character assassin like Kurtz time for his divisive, destructive ranting on our public airwaves.
