A simple activist response to Obama's request for informants
Vanity, vanity, all is vanity | 4 Aug 2009 | Me

Posted on 08/04/2009 2:18:52 PM PDT by Mr. Silverback

As many of you know, Obama has sent Linda Douglas out to lie about his health care intentions and ask Americans to inform on their neighbors by sending reports of "disinformation" to the address flag@whitehouse.org.

My simple suggestion for dealing with this Orwellian phenomenon is this:

1. Go here and get yourself a nice, fat pic of the Gadsen flag.

2. Attach it to an email.

3. Put "Response to your request" or "Here's some help on health care" or whatever in the subject line. Be polite.

4. Put "Here's a flag for you!" in the body of the message.

5. Address it to flag@whitehouse.gov and push send.

6. Repeat at least once for each email account you have.

Note: The intent here is not necessarily to crash their servers. I'm sure the White House has very robust IT infrastructure and more bandwidth than you can shake a stick at. The intent is to send them a message and let them know we aren't taking their fascist crap.

To paraphrase Stephen Decatur, they've asked for digital gunpowder, let's send them some cannonballs along with it.

Alternate suggestions:

1. Send an email telling them you have video of people lying about the health care plan...then link to video of Obama saying "no government takeover" and his 2003 single payer speech. Or send them footage of Barney Frank's single payer interview.

2. Send a report claiming you have a name and picture of a guy lying about healthcare. Then include a photo of the President. Or say you have the names of several people, and send names and photos of Sebellius, Specter, etc.

3. Send them the Obama Joker poster without additional comment.

4. Send them town hall clips and identify the weasel or weasels running the meeting as the source of disinformation. For example, send them the Sebellius & Specter clip and write something like "Clip of woman and elderly man putting out health care disinformation."

In response, I felt I needed to do my civic duty.

I just reported this http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/The-Presidents-Press-Conference-Full-Video/ to flag@whitehouse.gov as being “fishy” and full of lies and distortions. Now, if I disappear today, please tell Lynn and the boys that I love them.

Thank you for making me spout Cricket Cola all over my key board. That is too hilarious. "...woman and elderly man ... putting out misinformation."

Wouldn't you lurrve to see the emails they are receiving after putting out this request? Wonder how long it will take them to shut down that email address?

Here's my response:

Sides are being drawn. The President has come out and urged his minions and useful idiots to "turn us in" if we speak out against this monstrosity health bill.

So be it.

This is getting to a stage where we have to stand up straight. We're not like the Jews in Germany and Poland, we're not like the Russian farmers or Chinese peasants.

We know our rights, we are now cowed, and are willing to fight and die for those rights if necessary...and we are armed.

I love this country, I love the constitution and the rule of law based on it...but this is not that and it is the fast road to tyranny.

So, NO, I will not comply with these assinine statments. What I will do is speak up all the louder, redouble my efforts, and challenge them straight to their marxist faces.

If they want to curtail my free speech, they are going to have to literally fight me over it.

ALL DISTRACTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Contact your Congresscritters and let them know you are outraged!

Does anyone really think emailing a Gadsden flag to Obama will accomplish anything?

Do things which can make a difference.....email/call your Congresscritters.

I thought of that, but I decided that they will only win if we are too afraid of them to defy them. Otherwise they are vastly outnumbered.

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 flag@whitehouse.gov.

BLIND OBEDIENCE TO ORDERS FROM ON HIGH

http://www.libertygunrights.com/BlindObedience.html

Hitler set up a system by which he could manage every household. The neighborhood (which was called by the German word “gau”) had an appointed informant in each. The person in charge of the neighborhood (“gau”) was also an informant to Hitler’s dictatorial regime. He was called the “gauleiter”. Information on the people within those neighborhoods was fed upward by means of the “gauleiter” for use of that totalitarian administration. In turn, instruction was relayed downward through this same conduit as the "gauleiter" received instruction as to what thought and behavior would be tolerated by the administration.

Does this sound like the Obama Truth Squads?

I love this part:

For the record, the President has consistently said that if you like your insurance plan, your doctor, or both, you will be able to keep them. He has even proposed eight consumer protections relating specifically to the health insurance industry.

The President has also said he won't raise taxes on the middle-class. His own party disagrees with him. Taxes WILL be raised. Count on it. What will the President or his propagandist say then?

GHW Bush also consistently said no middle class tax hike.

Clinton consistently said no middle class tax hike.

He also consistently said he never had sex with Monica.

Nixon consistently said he had no connection to Watergate...
