Free Speech, Left-Wing Style

How about this expression of civil political discourse in South Carolina this past weekend?

Vandals spray-painted the words "Republican means slavery" on the door of the York County [South Carolina] GOP campaign headquarters overnight Friday.
Do you think that is what Obama was trying to tell his followers to do on 17 September 2008 when he made the statements below in Elko, Nevada? (Note: emphasis mine)

In Elko, Obama tried to anticipate his critics and called on the crowd of about 1,500 to sharpen their elbows, too.

"I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face," he said.

"And if they tell you that, 'Well, we're not sure where he stands on guns.' I want you to say, 'He believes in the Second Amendment.' If they tell you, 'Well, he's going to raise your taxes,' you say, 'No, he's not, he's going lower them.' You are my ambassadors. You guys are the ones who can make the case."
Funny how Obama's new kind of politics are a lot like the old Chicago kind of politics, isn't it?
