ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Your editorial on voter intimidation (“Return of the Black Panther,” Opinion, Tuesday), while welcome and informative, did not go far enough in describing the dangerous situation we face in America today. If such intimidation is allowed to continue and the Obama administration is allowed to suppress investigations into groups like ACORN, we will be well on our way to seeing the collapse of the total package of freedoms and liberties that have been our legacy for over 230 years.

Democrats have been advocating intimidation for many years now, and no one said much. They will shout down anyone who disagrees with them, or utilize hate-crime statutes to destroy them. Public officials, such as Sarah Palin, are subjected to treatment and investigations that, if the tables were turned, would rightly be called “witch hunts.”

In America, outlets for conservative thought are trashed and burned. With President Obama and Company in power, they are looking to suppress any and all competing ideas.
