Press Secretary Denies President Is Compiling “Enemies List”
A Semi-News/Semi-Satire from AzConservative ^ | 8 August 2009 | John Semmens

Posted on 08/09/2009 2:26:50 PM PDT by John Semmens

The Obama Administration’s call for its supporters to take down names and addresses of those speaking out against the President’s health care legislation has sparked fears that he is compiling an “enemies list” for future retaliation.

“Not so,” says Robert Gibbs, the President’s Press Secretary. “An ‘enemies list’ implies that we would seek to harm those whose names fall into our hands. Nothing could be further from the truth.”

Gibbs insisted that the list would only be used for constructive purposes. “There’s a lot of misinformation about the President’s program floating around out there,” he contended. “Getting the correct information out is a difficult task. Having a list of those who are already victims of this misinformation will enable us to better target our remedial efforts.”

A remedial effort under consideration is how best to “reeducate” the misinformed. “For example, these people could be scheduled to listen to an exposition of the truth from well-informed government officials,” Gibbs offered. “An all stations simulcast TV briefing by the President and selected experts would be an obvious first option. More intensive formats for conveying the correct view of the plan could be conducted for the ‘hard-to-persuade’ later, if needed.”

I am sure that when the names and addresses are handed to the ACORN, SEIU thugs and OFA that its all “constructive” when they beat people to a pulp.

We already knew we were targets. And not for anything remotely resembling constructive.

At least he’s not continuing the big lie that the list doesn’t exist.

The administration is compiling an Enemies List. If Hussein manages to inflict his healthcare plan that list will determine much of who gets care and who does not, who becomes eligible first for surprise euthanasia.

These are the ACORNS who come to your door to explain, Chicago style, where you have been wrong. They will adjust your thinking for you at no charge.

This claims to be satire but I would class it as infomed speculation.

“An ‘enemies list’ implies that we would seek to harm those whose names fall into our hands. Nothing could be further from the truth.”

"We're actually going to reward those who oppose us. We need the names and addresses to send them their gifts."

When it becomes near impossible to determine satire from reality it is time back into a corner with the muzzle pointing out.

When I read satire from IowaHawk I laugh out loud, since it starts off with a bite of truth and then stretches it out. Way out.

Semmens aka “AzConservative” is so close to what libs mean that I have to check before my blood pressure goes up. It is like he tells us what they really mean behind the platitudes they use.

Keep it up, John.

He’s using private citizens to collect information on other private citizens. Is that clear enough?

There are weak losers in every society who want to feel important by “turning in” their fellow citizens.
