Obama Supporters Cry Spam to Silence the Opposition?

This is what we have to look forward to under Hussein Obama and his merry band of liberal fascists?

It looks like Google has officially joined the Barack Obama campaign and decided that its contribution would be to shut down any blog on the Google owned blogging system that has an anti-Obama message.

Yes, it sure seems that Google has begun to go through its many thousands of blogs to lock out the owners of anti-Obama blogs so that the noObama message is effectively squelched. Thus far, Google has terminated the access by blog owners to 7 such sites and the list may be growing. Boy, it must be nice for Barack Obama to have an ally powerful enough to silence his opponents like that!

It isn't just conservative sites that Google's Blogger platform is eliminating. For instance, has been frozen and this one is a Hillary supporting site. The operator of Come a Long Way has a mirror site off the Blogspot platform and has today posted this notice:


I have been hesitant to post this update because I cannot find a link to prove the claim, but it is starting to look like this Blogspot shut down of anti-Obama sites occurred because of a concerted effort by Obama supporters.

What they did was go to the Blogspot addresses found on the site of the NoObama coalition called Just Say No Deal and constantly hit the "mark as spam" link so that Google's Blogger would be flooded with spam warnings. This caused Google/Blogger to freeze the sites marked.

Apparently, this campaign merely took advantage of Google/Blogger's flawed system of finding spam blogs. So, it looks like what we have here is an Obama dirty trick to shut down political opposition. Looks like Obmatons aren't much for that whole democracy thing, eh?

Once I find a link to an Obama site talking about this attack, I will post it.


  1. Google needs to take responsibility for censoring these blogs by publicly apologizing and pledge to never censor content again...force them to change or else we will blog on non-Google platforms:

  2. I agree, this has to be nipped in the bud, because we are on the cusp of national censorship.

  3. Well I hope you take a look at the campaign I started cause this is a real way to make something happen:

  4. Boy! You guys are really suspicious bunch of conspiracy freaks. I'm an enthusiastic Obama supporter and my first thoughts were along the same line... but the opposite side of the fence.

    (I am not alone, incidentally. This must be part of the human condition.)

    After a bit of searching I came across this.

    Let's chill and wait to get back to our keyboards when the plumbers get done. The poop's starting to pile up.
