The Disinformation Effort is ON!

Just got an email from the Democratic Party, to let me know that those people protesting health care are not really actual concerned citizens. Oh no my friends. They are "anti-reform mobs"...

That's right, "anti-reform mobs". That is what the president's party has labeled Americans who don't want their taxes raised to pay for Obama's health care plan.

We've just seen how woefully Obama underjudged response to the "clunker" package. Why on earth would we believe his administration has believable real world figures on health care?

Read the quote at the left of this blog, posted only 2 days ago.

Prediction true!

Here's what Jen O'Malley Dillon tells us, on behalf of Obama and the Dems, in this little email offering:

"These "grassroots protests" are being organized and largely paid for by Washington special interests and insurance companies who are desperate to block reform. They're trying to use lies and fear to break the President and his agenda for change.'

This is the SAME RHETORIC used to pooh pooh the tea party protests. Anyone who isn't 100% "yes we can" is a front for special interests. But look at the REAL ISSUE this email is about - breaking the president's agenda...


How dare the Democratic Party label Americans who are exercising the Right we still have for Freedom of Speech by smearing them as a "mob".

This email also targets House Minority Leader John Boehner, making him the de facto head of the mob. Disgusting, but a quintessential Obama ploy.

We've seen these tactics from the Obama campaign many times in the past two years (and don't kid yourself, this may say it is from the Democratic Party but it is already all about re-electing Obama). As his favorable ratings fall, they will continue casting about for a villian to rally people against. Better a mob they form, eh?

I have contacted by representatives to instruct them to oppose Obama's insane health insurance pipedream. But I have little faith that they will dare to stand up for their constituents and go against the Obama machine.

Not yet anyway.

Bush didn't tolerate dissent to even be in his audiences let alone armed protesters. Remember the free speech zones. What would have happened to anyone shouting out Death to "Bush and his 2 kids"? They would have been arrested. What will you say when Hillary backs Obama's health care plan? Will you be as disgusted with her? Are you so embittered because the president has a penis or is it something else? Will you opt out of medicare and social security and pay for your healthcare when you are 65?
Boehner and his crew, including the clueless Palin ARE talking heads for the corporate takeover of health care. What if you get sick and your insurance company drops you, will you support that?
Think. What will you do then? Civil debate is essential, screaming Nazi and Hitler in town halls is mob mentality. Bringing an assault rifle to a Presidential event strays from the last thread of decency with our history of assassination. What would you say if someone with an assault rifle showed up at one of Palin's events with a sign stating it is time to water the tree of liberty? Think.
Read more widely. Your ignorance is playing into their hands.
