From the Whitehouse.
There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Words can’t express how I feel right now.
I would be honored if my regular readers would report me to the Whitehouse for my subversive speech. You can tell them that Larry Correia (the tall one, from Utah) said that they can take their idiotic health care proposal and jam it up their rectum, all 1,000+ pages, sideways. Preferably while it is on fire.
Do you remember back in 2002 when DHS came out with their snitch on your neighbor if you think they’re a terrorist about to blow something up program? Do you remember the screaming indignity at that? Do you remember the institutional freak out about how this was the thought police, and Hollywood lining up and holding hands against the sheer fascism of reporting suspicious activity to the police?
Yeah… So do I.
Do you remember when every night on the news we were told that the protestors who were bussed from place to place with George Soros money and Cindy Sheehan were a “grass roots” movement?
I remember that too. So I’m wondering why ticked off American’s who stand up in town-hall meetings with their congressmen now are an “astroturf” movement. Apparently our anger isn’t real. Our disagreement over health care is because we’re “uneducated” or “uninformed.” I’ve heard people called rednecks, right-wing agitators, and one recently returned GI was dismissed because he was dressed too nicely, and that was suspicious. Because Lord knows, soldiers can’t wear a suit.
Are you as tired of this as I am?
Have you seen the recent picture of Obama photoshopped as the Joker with SOCIALISM written underneath? I saw a young man post that on Facebook yesterday, and he was immediately ripped into by some other posters because it was just “hateful” and I think that there were insinuations of racism.
So… Were these same people offended with all the George Bush pictures that compared him to a monkey?
No, no, of course not. Because that is different. See, Barack is just a good man, and if you disagree, then you’ll just have to agree to disagree, but don’t use Hate Speech. It is Hate Speech to call him a socialist.
Allrighty then. I’ve thrown this challenge out a few times and it has never been answered yet. Most of my readers fall into the right-libertarian end of the chart, I know that, but please, pass this challenge on to your liberal friends.
If Barack Obama isn’t a socialist, please name 5 policies, regulations, or laws that he has proposed or pushed during his presidency, that Karl Marx himself would not have approve of.
I’m still waiting for the first one. So if the father of socialism would approve of everything Obama has done, and the Socialist and Communist parties of America love and support the guy and his policies, wouldn’t that make him a… I don’t know… what’s the word I’m looking for… Socialist? (I had one guy try to seriously suggest that staying in Afghanistan was one… Yes, because socialist countries have never gone to war…)
Listen, morons at email@example.com. We’re not stupid. We’re not uneducated. We’re not uninformed. But we are extremely angry. The subversives at the town-halls shouting down your puppet congressmen are regular people who share the same feelings of betrayal and fear as the rest of us. We are smart enough to know that the government has never, ever, taken over anything and made it more efficient, better, or cheaper.
We know that other countries with socialized medicine have all sorts of problems. We know that the vast majority of medical research is performed by American companies. Most of us are happy with our insurance. Most of us can actually read the text of the law, which is more than I can say for congress. We know when we’re being lied to.
It doesn’t take “fear mongering” to despise this bill. All it takes is basic literacy and a tiny love of freedom.
We’re not stupid. We’re pissed off. Get it straight.
