The Left's first response to opinions with which they disagree is always censorship and silencing the opposition. Their lack of respect for the First Amendament proves that they are closer on the spectrum to Marxist Leninism than to classical liberalism.
An attack organized by this "progressive" cyberthug temporarily resulted in the removal of this opinion piece by Gov. Palin from Facebook, but it has been re-posted.
It's tactics like this which remind the American majority that the left cannot be trusted to keep the republic which Mr. Franklin and his colleagues sacrificed so much to leave to us as their enduring legacy of liberty. Everyday American have seen more than enough leftist thuggery to last a lifetime. Here's hoping that once the "progressives" are voted out of power, we will not forget what the left did with their opportunity to demonstrate that progressivism was all they said it would be. But it never does...
Update: After being asked about the temporary deletion of Gov. Palin's post, reports CNN associate producer Martina Stewart, Facebook issued a statement of apology, explaining that the deletion was triggered by an automated system:
"The note in question did not violate our content standards but was removed by an automated system," Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes said in the statement. "We're always working to improve our processes and we apologize for any inconvenience this caused."- JP
