Have we ever had such a thin-skinned President? Or is it just that dissent toward Obama’s views (and Pelosi’s and Reid’s and Frank’s and….) simply won’t be tolerated?
It is a bit of both, in my view, but mostly the latter.
The White House and Democrats are trying to paint true grassroots activists are “mobs” — even while Obama orders his “troops” to tattle on those who disagree and while Democrats offer up an alphabet soup of paid groups to do their dirty work.
…House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dispatched a memo obtained by D.C.-based newspaper Human Events assuring Democrats of “close coordination” with faux grass-roots groups “including but not limited to HCAN, Families USA, AFSCME, SEIU, AARP, etc.”
So, the Dems are using FUNDED groups to push their meme, while attacking true grassroots efforts byAmericans opposed to Obamacare. Got that? Read on. From The Hill:
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) accused Republicans of fueling “mob rule” by way of encouraging conservative protesters of Democratic lawmakers and the Obama administration across the country.
DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse brought out the heavy artillery in a lengthy statement issued late Tuesday blasting the GOP and enablers in interest groups for spurring the protests.
“The Republicans and their allied groups — desperate after losing two consecutive elections and every major policy fight on Capitol Hill — are inciting angry mobs of a small number of rabid right wing extremists funded by K Street Lobbyists to disrupt thoughtful discussions about the future of health care in America taking place in Congressional Districts across the country,” Woodhouse said in a statement.
They even have a new ad out now attacking the vast majority of Americans who oppose the anti-American, Constitution-shredding policies of Obama, Pelosi and Reid….watch it and you WILL BE ANGRY! The projection of every Democratic tactic and thought onto Constitution-loving Americans is astounding!
Small Number? Have they been following the tea parties? And vast majorities of these Americans have NEVER protested in their lives.
Funded? As I said, most of the true grassroots movement against Obamacare consists of those who’ve never protested before and they certainly aren’t getting paid. Wanna talk about getting paid? — how about ACORN’s funding, a criminal enterprise, to the tune of hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to carry out Dear Leader’s eternal campaign against America?
Rabid Right Wing extremists? So now protesting and asking questions of our elected leaders is rabid? 84% of citizens are happy with their healthcare but it’s rabid to fight an overhaul of the system including government takeover of a large chunk of the economy?
Thoughtful discussions? Not one Republican proposal for toning down this Obamacare monstrosity has been “thoughtfully” considered in Congress. Not to mention that we are talking about a matter of a few weeks that Democrats have tried to ram this takeover through….where is the time for “thoughtful discussion”? The “thoughtful discussion” in this snarky comment sounds all pretty for their adoring masses but the insinuation is underhanded– and its being touted by the same irrational people who brought you “Bush Lied, People Died”. Not to mention that “thoughtful discussion” to the Democrats is “agree with us or shut up!” Or, for Obama, “I Won” !
Besides wasn’t it Obama who had this to say about “mob rule”? (H/T: Gateway Pundit)
“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!“
You want a good dose of what the Democrats have crammed into this bill? Here are a few choice pieces of the House bill by page number:
Page 29: Admission: your health care will be rationed!
Page 42: The “Health Choices Commissioner” will decide health benefits for you. You will have no choice. None.
Page 50: All non-US citizens, illegal or not, will be provided with free healthcare services
Page 59: The federal government will have direct, real-time access to all individual bank accounts for electronic funds transfer.
Page 65: Taxpayers will subsidize all union retiree and community organizer health plans (read: SEIU, UAW and ACORN)
Page 272: Cancer patients: welcome to the wonderful world of rationing!
Page 354: Government will restrict enrollment of SPECIAL NEEDS individuals.
Page 429: Advance Care Planning Consult will be used to dictate treatment as patient’s health deteriorates. This can include an ORDER for end-of-life plans. An ORDER from the GOVERNMENT.
From Heritage.org…Obama, the “mob-rule” Community-Organizer-in-Chief, is lying and the Democrats wouldn’t know “thoughtful debate if it slapped them in the face!:
The President has explicitly said that the public option will not eliminate private insurance. He told the American Medical Association on June 15th: “What are not legitimate concerns are those being put forward claiming a public option is somehow a Trojan horse for a single-payer system…So, when you hear the naysayers claim that I’m trying to bring about government-run health care, know this – they are not telling the truth.” So the President SAYS the public option will not lead to single payer health care … but a number of prominent people are saying the exact opposite:
- Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) at a Health Care for America Now rally: “And next to me was a guy from the insurance company who argued against the public health insurance option, saying it wouldn’t let private insurance compete. That a public option will put the private insurance industry out of business and lead to single-payer. My single-payer friends, he was right. The man was right.”
- Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) told Single Payer Action: “I think that if we get a good public option it could lead to single-payer and that is the best way to reach single-payer. Saying you’ll do nothing till you get single-payer is a sure way never to get it. … I think the best way we’re going to get single-payer, the only way, is to have a public option and demonstrate the strength of its power.”
- Washington Post blogger Ezra Klein at the Democratic National Convention last year: “They have a sneaky strategy, the point of which is to put in place something that over time the natural incentives within its own market will move it to single-payer.”
- Noble Prize winning New York Times columnist Paul Krugman: “[T]he only reason not to do [single-payer] is that politically it’s hard to do in one step…You’d have to convince people completely give up the insurance they have, whereas something that lets people keep the insurance they have but then offers the option of a public plan, that may evolve into single-payer.”
As if that is not enough, the Obama administration — an American president, mind you — is asking citizens to inform him of those not towing the Obamacare line!
From the White House website yesterday:
“There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to the end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to email@example.com.”
Something’s fishy alright….and it smells like dead fish….there’s a stench of fascism in the air. Obama and Democrats want their way, because, after all, they know what is best for us. They will get their government-controlled healthcare through intimidation if need be.
Bart Willruth at the American Thinker sees some eery similarities:
In 1930’s Germany, the new socialist government of Adolf Hitler (NAZI National Socialist Workers’ Party) began indoctrinating children in the quasi-military organization, the Hitler Youth, to inform on their parents should they overhear discussions subversive to the policies of the Leader. As the noose was tightened, local community organizers were appointed to watch their neighbors and were told to report subversive comments to the bureaucrats above them. Neighbors informed on neighbors, some for reasons of patriotism or loyalty, some from fear. A modern inquisition ensued; a terror to free thought and expression. Increasingly harsh penalties were meted out to those who dared to dissent.
This elitist, Leftist mindset we have in Washington is taking us quickly down a path that is the antithesis of America. DO NOT LET THEM INTIMIDATE YOU AND YOUR EFFORTS TO STOP THIS LIBERAL ONSLAUGHT!
This healthcare bill currently being touted is the epitome of what President Obama and the Democrats (and some Republicans) think about government and you. They believe they are better than you and that you are not smart enough to make decisions in your life. They believe that government should have control of your life in most aspects. They don’t believe they should follow the same rules as we do.
Worse, they lie about their intentions in order to push through freedom-suppressing mandates so that they can gain more control over you.
Further, an informed America is not what they want….when you are informed and fight for yourself they will demonize you …..it is happening now!
We can read the bill and most of us likely understand its contents better than those now calling you extreme!
Don’t stop voicing your outrage….don’t let the elitists stop you.
And, as for you little Obamabot spies who’ve read this far before “reporting” this post to Dear Leader….I’m sure you will find this post “fishy”….a righteous opposition and the truth is always fishy to those who refuse it.
