Obamacare: When the democrats encourage support, it's grassroots support, when it's the opposition -- it's demonized as "astro-turfing"
Same old leftist tactics: demonize your enemies …
The democrats are calling the opposition’s organizing attempts “astro-turfing” as an indicator of fake “grass roots” support of their issue. They are telling the media that these citizen grass roots attempts are being sponsored by hidden right wing billionaires, the evil drug companies, the evil insurance companies and other assorted evildoers left over from the Bush presidency.
Nothing could be farther from the truth. It is hard enough to get Americans enthusiastic about voting, it is the sense of the politicians that Americans have short memories and will not remember their last outrageous attempt to subvert the country, pick the taxpayer’s pockets or curtail individual freedoms.
Like I said, nothing can be further from the truth – because the type of outrage and support being shown cannot be easily faked. Citizens are outraged enough to demonstrate. Something which the democrats do not want or need as they try to cram their American-bashing bills down our throats.
Same old leftist tactics: union thuggery …
Want to see the truth: look for the democrat’s union thugs that attempt to crowd out meetings, shout down the opposition and implicitly threaten violence.
See for yourself …
Read the story …
“Interview with Kenneth Gladney, Man Assaulted by Union Thugs at Town Hall – An interview with Kenneth Gladney, the man assaulted by union thugs at a St. Louis health care town hall meeting last night. Ken talks about how the incident started, the racial slurs used against him by the union heavy, and how he was hit in the face and kicked by several union members.”
“Chaos at Carnahan Town Hall – Union thugs came out to defend the socialist takeover of health care in America last night. They hurled racial slurs at a black conservative and assaulted him. Many people were turned away at the door, while others–who looked like union people–were allowed in. Still, inside the town hall meeting in St. Louis, Rep. Russell Carnahan heard from Americans who will not stand for their freedom being robbed by the government.”
Will Obama’s Administration protect you against thuggery or disenfranchisement?
You probably noticed that Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, dropped the prosecution of militant blacks as they attempted to intimidate voters by their paramilitary dress and threatening demeanor. One could considered them armed as they sported clubs. Why didn’t the democrats scream about the disenfranchisement of voters – because these miscreants were there to assist democrat voters and intimidate likely non-democrat voters. How did they know which was which – that’s the racist thing about the incident – they were apparently thought to be glaring at the white voters since it was assumed that black voters were Obama supporters.
Ginning up false support for the democrat healthcare program …
For those of you who will be viewing favorable healthcare reports from a corrupt and complicit mainstream media, you should keep in mind that these responses may have been created by the Obama Administration which is using its prodigious e-mail list to turn out healthcare supporters.
See for yourself how the twist the truth for political gain …
So we've cooked up an easy, powerful way for you to make a big impression: Office Visits for Health Reform.
All this week, OFA members like you will be stopping by local congressional offices to show our support for insurance reform. You can have a quick conversation with the local staff, tell your personal story, or even just drop off a customized flyer and say that reform matters to you.
We'll provide everything you need: the address, phone number, and open hours for the office, information about how the health care crisis affects your state for you to drop off (with the option of adding your personal story), and a step-by-step guide for your visit.
According to our records, you live near Sen. Dianne Feinstein's office in Los Angeles, CA.
As you've probably seen in the news, special interest attack groups are stirring up partisan mobs with lies about health reform, and it's getting ugly. Across the country, members of Congress who support reform are being shouted down, physically assaulted, hung in effigy, and receiving death threats. We can't let extremists hijack this debate, or confuse Congress about where the people stand.
Office Visits for Health Reform are our chance to show that the vast majority of American voters know that the cost of inaction is too high to bear, and strongly support passing health reform in 2009.
Don't worry if you've never done anything like this before. The congressional staff is there to listen, and your opinion as a constituent matters a lot. And if you bring a friend, you'll have more fun and make an even greater impact.

Wherever you live, these visits matter: Many representatives are pushing hard toward reform, and they are taking a lot of heat from special interests. They deserve our thanks and need our support to continue the fight. But those who are still putting insurance companies and partisan point-scoring ahead of their constituents must know that voters are watching -- and that we expect better.
Earlier this week, the President wrote that "this is the moment our movement was built for" and asked us all to commit to join at least one event this month. This is the way to answer that call, and rise to the challenge of this moment together.
Thank you for going the extra mile when it matters the most,
Manipulation of the mindless and uncaring – you bet. How many of these so-called Obamacans are doing this because they have actually read the proposed legislation and understand the issues? How many simply regard these groups as giant social clubs where they can make a difference.
This is the ugly face of manipulative socialist community organizing …
This is the same tactic used by union organizers and community organizers when they sell their stories of victimhood and oppression to the mainstream media or want to demonize their opposition.
Well, screw them … we know the truth and we know that the great majority of American citizens want nothing to do with politics and politicians – they are content to live their lives in the best manner possible and avoid becoming involved in so-called grass roots support groups organized by manipulative democrats and others.
But when they feel they are getting screwed by the politicians who are no longer representing “we the people,” they march and do protest. And for the asshat democrats who tell you that their attempts at organized protest are good and that your attempts are un-American and thuggish – just remember they live in an “opposite” world: where black is white, up is down and evil is good. Their Orwellian use of words to redefine commonly understood words like “protest” can be used to demonstrate their evil intentions.
Feel free to contact your elected officials, visit their offices and make your feelings known …
Let them know that we are mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore.
NO MORE BACKROOM DEALS!
NO MORE LAST MINUTE LEGISLATION WHICH CANNOT BE POSSIBLY READ BEFORE VOTING!
NO MORE UNELECTED, UN-CONFIRMED AND UNACCOUNTABLE CZARS RUNNING A SHADOW GOVERNMENT!
NO MORE LEAVING OUT THE EXACT DETAILS AND HANDING THE POWER TO THE ADMINISTRATION'S AGENCIES AND CZARS!
We do not need to destroy our current healthcare system in favor of an unknown and untested system with unknown provisions, unknown responsibilities and unknown costs.
Want to make them back down? See if they are willing to find a single state to test their “revolutionary” program before destroying the healthcare industry. See if they are willing to make it mandatory that all elected and appointed officials and unionized government workers must use the system and give up their pension funds for the type of 401(k) system that is found in the private sector.
It is time that we curtain a growing cancer consisting of a pampered political class that has lost touch with reality and the wants and needs of “we the people.”
My proposal is simple …
Be well, be safe and take care of yourself and your family first.
THEY DO WORK FOR US AND THEY SHOULD HEAR OUR VOICE!
