MoveOn watching Hagan's health

MoveOn.org, the liberal advocacy group, is threatening to run ads against North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan if she does not support President Barack Obama’s health care plan.

Justin Ruben, executive director of MoveOn.org said the group was prepared to “run ads in North Carolina and DC asking that she advocate for the public option and support the president in truly solving the nation’s health care crisis,” Rob Christensen reports

“Given recent comments showing that Senator Hagan is not supporting the public health insurance option, MoveOn.org will be making clear that our 115,000 members in North Carolina -- many of whom volunteered for or donated to her campaign last year -- believe the public option is the heart of true health care reform,” Ruben said in a statement.

Well well, since I’m a NC resident I’m glad to see Hagan isn’t supporting this.

This should be taken as a badge of honor. If I was Hagan, I would simply release a statement saying “I am proud that the far-left group MoveOn.org opposes my decision not to support the President’s disastrous government-run health-care plan.” As if MoveOn.org will support Hagan anyway even if she does support the bill.

What is the tax status of Moveon.org? Is their funding public domain? How can we target their funding?

I just finished reading Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg, and the more I see of politics in the era of Obama, the more I see fascism... and the uglier kind—not the kind Goldberg predicted would smother us in a maternal hug. Though the hugging is there too.

maybe N.C. Freepers need to make a contact to counter MoveOn. I will certainly do so.

It’s not ‘the public option’; it’s federal government controlled health care. It’s another huge leap toward fascism.

The response:
Intimidation and threats should not play a part in our decision making process. MoveOn.Org says they’re going to run ads against me. I say, so what?

Disgusting how NC or any other state could have such a large infestation of human waste within its borders.

After Obama told the world that the very ill might need to take more pain killers, and might not deserve expensive operations, I really think that most SMART politicians would want Move-on and the libs to run ads against them!

Obama Care is TOXIC!

“Hey Citizens:

Notice how the Left is trying to intimidate anyone who disagrees with them, on Socialized Medicine?

Just think, once we have Obama Care, you will be afraid to speak out because these thugs MIGHT NOT TREAT YOU!”


There, the above radio advertising ought to do the trick.

Yeah, how come Republicans like to distance themselves from anything that may be perceived as far right but the Democrats have no prolems associating with MoveOn, ACORN, William Ayers, Code Pink etc.?

Nurse Ratchett will call into the Dem run city hall to find out which party you are registered in. If she finds out you’re a Republican - pull the plug.

Oh lordy, this’ll have Kay Hagan screeching worse than she was during her very ungracious “victory speech.” That woman’s voice could cut glass.

What is the tax status of Moveon.org? Is their funding public domain? How can we target their funding?

From their site:

The MoveOn family of organizations is made up of a couple of different pieces. MoveOn.org Civic Action, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, formerly known just as MoveOn.org, primarily focuses on education and advocacy on important national issues. MoveOn.org Political Action, a federal PAC, formerly known as MoveOn PAC, mobilizes people across the country to fight important battles in Congress and help elect candidates who reflect our values. Both organizations are entirely funded by individuals.

This is hilarious. Toe the line, or moveon.org will eat its own fellow liberals. Whatever happened to representing the voters of the state they serve? Why even have elections?

LOL they are most likely a major receipient of Obama funds... stimulus money, tax dollars, its all dirty in Obama Land...

But the America people will never know the truth because Obama has no problems firing IG’s who oversight the expenditures of Stimulus money and other govt funds and the media refuses to do any journalistic investigation in Obamaland and when Conservatives try to speak out they are laled racists and worse and shut down.

America is a dying Republic. We need a strong Conservative leader to bring us back from the brink.

I like how these pantywaists try to turn every issue into a crisis. There is no health care crisis today but there will be if Obomba takes over America's health care system. These filthy scumbags seem to be trying to overwhelm our system in order to destroy it.

Running ads NOW? What a joke. She's got SIX YEARS. Ads now are meaningless to her future electroal prospects. But far be it from me to tell them not to waste their money.

“America is a dying Republic. We need a strong Conservative leader to bring us back from the brink.”

I agree with the first part of what you wrote, but feel that we can’t just ‘wait for a strong Conservative leader’. The answer has to begin at the grass roots level and has to involve a multitude of complimentary approaches. These include targeting the funding of the left. Wherever and whenever possible it is our duty to avoid spending money that winds up directly or indirectly helping the left. The Soviet Union was brought down because they couldn’t keep things going financially. The pocketbook is the place to stop the left.

It didn't used to be this way, but as you know, we have a pretty large coastline and up to 10 years or so ago, the land down there wasn't all that expensive, and the Yankee's, especially from New Jersey, decided to buy up everything, now, guess what we got? The same crap that was up there!! They ruined their beaches, so now they come here to ruin ours, along with the state!! Just my observation!
