I recently blogged about some of the garbage written about Barack Obama on the grassroots blogs at HillaryClinton.com.
Well... the Clinton campaign has shut down the entire social networking portion of its site. The URL connect.HillaryClinton.com – where hundreds of community blogs once churned – now throws you to blog.HillaryClinton.com... where only authorized campaign spokespersons like Howard Wolfson can post.
Team Hillary used to encourage Clinton supporters to “Start a Blog.” Those words no longer appear on HillaryClinton.com.
(Obama’s grassroots blogs are still active. New members at BarackObama.com are still invited to “Share your thoughts and ideas with the community on your own blog.”)
I don’t know when the clampdown took place. But last Wednesday, a Hillary grassroots blogger posted this ridiculous lie on the left-wing website DemocraticUnderground.com:
“Apparently, Obama voiced plans to sign an Executive Order repealing income tax as reparations for African-Americans within the first 100 days of his Administration. No legislation or Congressional action would be required.”
This goofus then linked to a blog entry at connect.HillaryClinton.com titled “Surprise for America: Obama Plans Reparations.” (That link – like all links to the grassroots Hillary blogs – now brings up an error page.)
How do you like that smear? Obama’s gonna give reparations to blacks by letting them not pay taxes!
It’s malicious mischief like that, I bet you, that spoiled the party for everybody at connect.HillaryClinton.com.
