Democrats vs. the First Amendment

We noted here Barack Obama’s effort to drum up a criminal prosecution of those who disagree with him politically. The prospect of such a man in control of the Department of Justice is sobering, to say the least. Another instance of the Democrats’ effort to suppress inconvenient First Amendment rights occurred in Denver today, when policemen arrested an ABC newsman, Asa Eslocker, whose camera crew, on a public sidewalk, was photographing Democratic Senators and VIP donors leaving a private meeting at the Brown Palace Hotel.

If you follow the link above, you can see shocking footage of the ABC reporter being arrested for crossing the Democratic Party.

Will expressing conservative political opinions and taking pictures on a public sidewalk–pictures that are inconvenient for the Democratic Party–result in jail terms when Barack Obama is President? If Obama has his way, the answer appears to be Yes.
