So, dissent isn' t the highest form of patriotism?

Mark Steyn has a great article about those evil, swastika-carrying astroturfers who are showing up at those town hall meetings.

“The right-wing extremist Republican base is back!” warns the Democratic National Committee. These right-wing extremists have been given their marching orders by their masters: They’ve been directed to show up at “thousands of events,” told to “organize,” “knock on doors” . . .

No, wait. My mistake. That’s the e-mail I got from Mitch Stewart, Director of “Organizing for America” at BarackObama.com. But that’s the good kind of “organizing.” Obama’s a community organizer. We’re the community. He organizes us. What part of that don’t you get?

Suddenly, you're saying "community organizer" like it's a bad thing.
. . . on Monday, the official White House website drew attention to the alarming amount of “disinformation about health insurance reform.” “These rumors often travel just below the surface,” warned Macon Phillips, Chief Commissar of the Hopenstasi . . . whoops, I mean White House Director of New Media, “via chain e-mails or through casual conversation.”

“Casual conversation,” eh? Why can’t these “dissenters” just be like normal people and read off the teleprompter?

“Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help,” continued Commissar Phillips. “If you get an email or see something on the web about health-insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.”Reporting dissent is the highest form of patriotism!

What the hell is wrong with these people? After 8 years of Cheney and Ashcroft and Gonzalez, your president is asking you to report on your neighbors. How absolutely quaint!

And this isn't about being against reform of our health care system--most Americans want health care reform. Just not this one.
If only we’d stuck to the president’s August timetable and passed a gazillion-page health-care reform entirely unread by the House of Representatives or the Senate (the world’s greatest deliberative body) in nothing flat, we’d now have all the time in the world to sit around having a “serious discussion” and “real debate” on whatever it was we just did to one-sixth of the economy. But a sick, deranged, un-American mob has put an end to all that moderate and reasonable steamrollering by showing up and yelling insane, out-of-control questions like, “Awfully sorry to bother you, your Most Excellent Senatorial Eminence, but I was wondering if you could tell me why you don’t read any of the laws you make before you make them into law?”

I suggest you read the whole thing.

Trailer Trash Bill Warner Has Enlisted in the White House Internet Snitch Brigade

Ever since the White House announced the creation of its Internet Snitch Brigade (flag@whitehouse.gov), Americans were waiting for Insane P.I. Bill Warner to join it. And today it finally happened! In "ASSASSINATE BARACK OBAMA PLOTS INCREASE TO 10 RACIST RIGHT WING BLOGGERS FUEL WHITE SUPREMISTS (sic.) SECRET SERVICE SHUT EM DOWN by Bill Warner investigator," Warner writes:

"The US Secret Service so needs to investigate "Muslims Against Sharia by Khalim Massoud and Pamela Geller for her Anti-American racist activities on her website, which she operates out of her Manhattan NY apartment, and her incitement to hate by others and the possible murder of President Barack Obama.

Contact flag@whitehouse.gov and provide information for websites that promote hate and or attacks against the President of the United States Barack Obama.U.S.
Secret Service
New York City Office
335 Adams Street
32nd Floor
Brooklyn, NY 11201
Telephone: (718) 840-1000"

After pretending to file various lawsuits and complaints with the FBI, USSS, County Court, etc., Insane P.I. Bill Warner decided to employ another tactic. He wants the Internet Snitch Brigade to do his dirty work, to defame people who dare to disagree with Warner's demented rants. Could this trailer trash be more of a Nazi?

PS
We offer our sincere apologies to trailer trash for comparing them with Bill Warner.

You're kidding, right.

Warrantless wiretapping was no big deal. In fact, if you were so concerned about it maybe you had something to hide.

The whole world is now upside down. Have fun with your new friends....

Pam Geller is awesome!!!!!

Yeah, so the whole snitch thing is disturbing. Why don't they make an effort to educate the public (and those making these laws, for that matter) about their health care plan instead of making a list of all the people who provide false info about it.
I knew I wasn't thrilled about Obama, but, geez, I didn't expect to lose so much respect for him so fast.

When Republican administrations spy on the public that is the height of patriotism!

SUBJECT: CRIMINAL ALLEGATIONS REGARDING THE COMMISSION OF TREASON

I have observed and extensively recorded invidious attacks by military-political aristocrats against the Constitution for twenty years.

Now you have broken in and entered the White House by force of contrivance, concealment, conceit, dissembling, and deceit. Posing as an impostor president and commander in chief you have stripped civilian command and control over the military establishment. Known military criminal actors—command racketeers—are now free in the exercise of military government intent upon destruction of America’s constitutional government.

Free from constitutional restraint, and following your criminal example, military commanders deployed U.S. Army active duty combat troops into the small civilian community of Samson, Alabama last week in a demonstration of their newly received despotic, domestic police power.

We come now to this reckoning. I accuse you and your military-political criminal assistants of TREASON. I name you and your military criminal associates as traitors. Your criminal ascension manifests a clear and present danger. You fundamentally changed our form of government. The Constitution no longer works.

Confident holding your silent agreement and admission, I identify you as a foreign born domestic enemy.

My sworn duty Mr. Obama is to stand against what you stand for. You are not my president. You are not my commander in chief.

Obedient to the Constitution in submission of this criminal accusation I remain steadfast, and


Born fighting,

Unless I'm mistaken, I'm pretty sure warrantless wiretapping was authorized by congressional Democrats. Maybe I'm wrong. Oh that's right--those bad boys over at the CIA are all a bunch of liars.

Has it been suspended by Obama? Or is it one of those despicable Bush-era policies that he has somehow decided to continue? You know, "fierce moral urgency" and all . . .

And didn't those wiretaps only apply to foreign nationals, not US citizenry?

You know I can understand how some disturbing things may have been done in the immediate wake of 9/11 (you guys do remember 9/11, don't you?), but it is much less easier to understand this kind of skullduggery in regards to a domestic policy like health care--kind of a bit of difference, don't you think?

So Pam Geller compares Obama to Hitler. Surely, you are not upset by this. I sincerely find it to be in poor taste, as I am sure others on this side of the aisle do. But after years of Bushitler, Bush as vampire, Bush/Palin/Cheney lynched in effigy, Pam Geller gets under your skin?

Please show me what list you all are talking about -- it is as made up as murdering the elderly.

There is no list. This may not be my favorite thing his administration has done so far, but I think they are trying to get a grip on the entire world of misinformation out there in order to try to improve health care in this country. Things that you have already admitted are out there. There is plenty to go after this man about, but this is simply not true -- but I think you all know that.

I'm guessing that you've found no list, but I found this:

Why are internment camps being built?

By Chuck Baldwin

The Internet is abuzz with news about the construction of internment camps all across America.

>>>>The Internet is also ‘abuzz’ with LOLcats and Kenyan birth certificates, but who’s counting?

Of course, ‘mainstream’ media outlets refuse to touch the subject; or if they do, they pooh-pooh the story; they do what Glenn Beck recently did: try to debunk the story as fallacious and impugn people who speak of it as ‘conspiracy nuts.’ The fact that the Becks, Hannitys, Limbaughs, and O’Reillys of the media circus refuse to deal with the construction of large numbers of internment camps does not make them disappear, however.


For starters, all anyone need do to begin a serious investigation of the subject of internment camps is Google the phrase ‘FEMA Camps.’ There is more than enough evidence in that search engine alone to keep one busy with some in-depth private investigation of the subject for quite a while.

>>>>>Also, try ‘WTC 7′ and ‘contrails’. Speaking of the latter …

Just a few weeks ago, I was aboard a cross-country flight when the passenger I was sitting next to (a total stranger) asked me to take a look out the window. He asked, ‘Do those look like internment camps to you?’ I was astonished that the man (1) would even know to notice such a potentiality, and (2) would be so bold as to ask such a question of a total stranger. I must say, I was extremely happy to make his acquaintance.

>>>>Especially since it happened outside of group.

We were flying over Colorado, over extreme wilderness terrain, and, yes, right in the middle of nowhere, the buildings and surrounding features that I saw sure looked like internment camps to me. Of course, flying at over 30,000 feet in the sky makes it difficult for any kind of detailed analysis to take place; that is for sure.

>>>>Also, it was like they were building the internment camps for ant-sized people, which could mean the government has developed a shrinking ray to further oppress us.

Then, a friend recently brought this URL to my attention:

http://www.nationalguard.com/careers/mos/description.php?mos_code=31E

This is an advertisement by the National Guard promoting the Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) of “Internment/Resettlement Specialist.” Question: why does the National Guard need to recruit Internment/Resettlement Specialists? What do they know that we should know?

>>>>Other than that we are currently engaged in two hot wars, probably nothing.

Some suggest that these facilities are being prepared for large numbers of illegal immigrants.

>>>>Starting to feel relieved … breath coming easier … anger subsiding …

This seems extremely doubtful, however …

>>>>Doh!

To think that the federal government intends to place thousands of illegal aliens in internment camps borders on lunacy.

>>>>Because if they did, who would mow their lawns and irony their shirts?

Then, of course, there are those who continue to deny that these internment camps exist at all. But then, were there not thousands of Germans who denied the existence of concentration camps during World War II? These types of people would refuse to believe the sun came up in the east if the government spinmeisters told them it didn’t.

>>>>Damn you, Galilelo, damn you to hell!

Wait--aren't these the same camps that were being constructed during the 90's when Bill was in office? If I remember correctly, the skies were thick with Black Helicopters, and there were a lot of military transport trucks on the highways, especially in Mississippi.

If we put lithium in the water, things might be a little different.
