Skip to comments.Moveon.org Email: "This is Getting Ugly" [moveon hires thugs (ACORN?) to fight back]
Posted on 08/07/2009 11:13:02 AM PDT by FrdmLvr
I have been periodically posting emails I get from moveon.org, as I am on their mailing list. I share them with my FReeper friends because I am sure you will find them as enlightening as I do.
Notice that the last paragraph states: "This month could decide the future of health care and clean energy in America...". I posted another moveon.org email a few weeks ago that featured an offer for pre-orders for the latest Shepard Fairey poster of windmills because September was going to be the big push for "clean energy". This was set to kick-off before the Obama plan for healthcare came apart at the seams, and didn't go off as planned. Health care was supposed to have been a done deal in Aug.
Here is one I just received today:
Dear MoveOn member, It's getting ugly out there.
All across the country, right-wing extremists are disrupting congressional town-hall meetings with venomous attacks on President Obama's plans for health care and clean energy.
Last night in Tampa, Florida, a town hall meeting erupted into violence, with the police being called to break up fist fights and shoving matches.1 A Texas Democrat was shouted down by right-wing hecklers, many of whom admitted they didn't even live in his district.2 One North Carolina representative announced he wouldn't be holding any town-hall meetings after his office began receiving death threats.3 And in Maryland, protesters hung a Democratic congressman in effigy to oppose health-care reform.4 We've got a plan to fight back against these radical right-wingers. We've hired skilled grassroots organizers who are working with thousands of local volunteers to show Congress that ordinary Americans continue to support President Obama's agenda for change. And we're building new online tools to track events across the country and make sure MoveOn members turn out at each one. But we need to scale up our efforts quickly to make sure this plan works. To really swing into action during this month's congressional recess, we need to raise at least $250,000 immediately. Can you chip in $35 to support our work?
If the shouts of the right-wing mobs are the only voices our senators and representatives hear over the recess, we'll have a hard time passing health care and clean energy legislation.
That's why we're launching our Heat Up Congress campaign so quickly to fight back, using new technology to implement rapid response town hall turnout, organizing personal phone calls from small business leaders and donors to their representatives, running new ads, and activating an energized network of on-the-ground organizers and volunteers.
This month could decide the future of health care and clean energy in Americaand we're already one week in. If you've been sitting on the sidelines, now's the time to get involved. Talk to your neighbors, go to a town hall meetingand today, please chip in $35 to support our work:
Thanks for all you do.

These people are playing a very dangerous game with politics.They don’t even want to know what ugly is.
A Soros funded PAC hired "grassroots" organizers.
FINISH them all by filing charges against the perpetrator and David Axelrod for inciting violence with his comment to “hit harder.”

President Obamas top priority for Congress is health care reform. Insurance companies are spending over a million dollars a day lobbying against the reform, while feeding myths and fears to America. It will take the same grassroots energy that got Obama elected to see the change we voted for. Our work isnt over.

Yeah, where’s Nazi George. I thought he just made a bundle in the meltdown like he always does.
This is my standard reply to libtards:
When this health care for all crap passes, right now the legislation states that it will be illegal to sell private policies over the date of passage. It also says that HSAs will no longer be allowed. That means that my current policy will no longer be allowed and neither I nor my employer will be allowed to privately purchase an alternative.
I will not accept the public option that I will be dictated to join. I will not give the government control over my physical body. I will not pay their fines, I will not surrender to the impending warrant for my arrest. When they knock on my door, I will not answer. When they kick it in, I will make the news.
Hows that for unification, libtards? You loons are currently legislating my death. I will chose the terms and I will bring as many of you along as possible!
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,..
You should apply.
Lets all call Chris and tell him/her where to shove it!!!!!!!!!!!!
“It is refreshing to see that the left is no longer pro-choice!”
The left is and always has been pro-death, and the so-called health care reform is death to America.
Conservatives should apply for these jobs(posing as either libs or “moderates”) and get paid to spread OUR PR... At the very least we will get some very good intel on how they function.
Atleast we dont have to raise 250k.
80k for the Freepathon would be nice.
Thanks for the addresses. I forwarded it to them.
I agree, but I like to throw it in their faces. Roe v Wade was based on a “right to privacy” between a doctor and a woman who wanted the abortion “procedure.” The current legislation outlaws that “privacy” and maintains a person’s medical records in DC.
By supporting this legislation, the left is supporting the overriding of Roe.
It’s getting ugly because groups like MoveOn will brook no opposition to their view of leftist utopia. By the way, where’s Soros in all this?
I’ll take as many as I can.....
The bigger the crowds the better.
Everyone, look for a meeting of any kind in your district...and GO!
Personally, I'll have to watch from the sidelines in the 3rd District of CA. Sacramento.
There won't be any town halls under Doris Matsui's watch. She can barely find the women's room.
