Skip to comments.Obama Connected Group Calls for Brownshirt Tactics Against Healthcare Opponents
Posted on 08/10/2009 8:01:03 PM PDT by upchuck
An organization supported by Obama, Biden and 190 members of Congress, Health Care for America Now, instructs Democrats to confiscate signs and leaflets brought to Obamacare events by “rightwing extremists,” that is to say Americans opposed to totalitarian health care.
“The best way to do this is to make a blanket rule that no one can bring signs or leaflets and to advertise this fact as you do turn out in the weeks preceding the event. You can distribute your own signs in the event and offer them one as they enter if you choose to allow them to enter,” the HCAN website instructs.
HCAN is supported by the usual suspects, including ACORN, unions, MoveOn.org (a George Soros outfit), the National Council of La Raza, the eugenics front Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and the Clintonite John Podesta’s war-mongering Center for American Progress.
HCAN will organize brownshirt thugs — called “marshals” — to patrol crowds with local police assistance to make sure no opposition can be voiced. “Make sure that you assign marshals to take care of moving the crowd, keeping people organized and orderly, and acting as security should any need arise to ask noisy or disruptive protesters to leave. If you have cause to think that you will need more back-up, notify the police ahead of time.”
The corporate media should also be tightly controlled, according to the organization. “It’s important that you take away right-wingers opportunities to talk with reporters by making sure that your staff or leaders are in constant contact with the media who attend. You should set up a special table or area for the press to sit during the event and that area should be close t the stage and away from any areas of the venue where protesters may gather. Also make sure you have materials ready for the reporters so that they know the purpose and message of the event,” the website explains.
HCAN claims Democrats and Obamanoids “are getting beaten up by right wing zealots in these meetings.” In fact, as Infowars documented earlier today, the exact opposite is the case — union thugs attacked a patriot outside of St. Louis yesterday and put him in the hospital. Police arrested anti-Obamacare demonstrators and even media covering the demonstrations.
HCAN also suggests Democrats get with members of Congress to shut down free speech and control the opposition. “One advantage to organizing your own Town Hall or public event with Members of Congress is that you will have much more control over the event and limit the other side’s opportunities for disruption.”
Earlier this week, Infowars reported on Obama’s plan to organize informer-citizens to turn in their neighbors and others who oppose Obamacare. “Since we can’t keep track of all of [the "rightwing" opponents] 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 email@example.com,” writes Macon Phillips, the White House Director of New Media, in a post on the White House website.
During Bush’s reign the same tactics were evident, much to the outrage of liberals and Democrats. “As Bush has traveled the United States during this political campaign, the Secret Service and local police have often handled public protest by quickly arresting or removing demonstrators, free-speech advocates say,” the Washington Post reported on October 28, 2004. “In addition, access to Bush’s events has been unusually tightly controlled and people who do not support Bush’s reelection have been removed.” Now that the shoe is on the other foot, Democrats have become strident zealots in an effort to deny the First Amendment to their opponents.
Obviously, the Obamanoids are desperate to control the debate and shut down the massive opposition consisting largely of normal middle class Americans who are outraged by Obama’s rationed totalitarian health care plan. In order to control the issue and ram it through Congress, Obama’s operatives are certainly not beyond employing brownshirt tactics used by the Nazis in Germany and Stalin in the Soviet Union.
We CANNOT let this stand. More and more rights are being ripped away from us on a daily basis. This has GOT TO STOP.
The lies and deception of the Obama administration and the DNC leadership are becoming more and more apparent...and as they do, they also become more and more shrill.
These people are drunk with power and control.
Their pronouncements and actions are like every other repressive, tin-horn regime in history. Label the opposition with exactly what they themselves are doing and then use the government controlled and co-opted press to spread that lie, and then use their thugs to try and enforce it and stamp out dissent.
Well, not any more in this country. The health care debate has blown the lid off and it's time to carry it through on this issue and every other similiar issue (like Cap & Trade, FOCA, etc.) that these wanna-be tyrants propose.
President Barack Hussein Obama said on August 7, 2009, that he expected the people who caused the financial and health care mess to be quiet, stand out of the way, and let it be fixed. Well, Mr. President, if you do not want the people who created this mess standing in the way of fixing it, then you, Mr. Obama...and Pelosi, Reid, Dodd, Frank, et all had best step out of the way yourselves. Because you not only helped engineer the problems that ensured the fiasco...you are now intent on making it immeasurably worse in your drive towards abject marxism.
In order to hide this, and in an effort to push their monstrosity Health Care, the liberal-left and Obama seem intent on turning the frustration and angst of the American people over his policies into something more akin to Iran over this issue, with their own Basij thugs sent out to silence us, and Obama supporters called on by the Whitehouse to report any dissent.
Despite all this, the American people are downloading the Dem Health Care Plan HERE and elsewhere and educating themselves.
They are also reading the cited quotes of the main architect of the plan and Chief Advisor to Obama on Health Care HERE and elsewhere, and seeing the context of the plan from the designer of it.
So, when Sarah Palin callis it evil, they know for themselves that she speaks the truth.
So they continue to take their feelings...and their own documentation...to their reps and gett in their faces about it.
...and on the lighter side, take your mind off the Obamanation for a few minutes and enjoy some beautiful Western US scenery slideshows.
HCAN’s not doing too well, judging by this evening’s TH meeting in Towson, MD. They were outnumbered 20 to 1!
What a bunch of losers...them and their patron saint, Nasty Pelousi.
Let the record show, clearly, who started the violence. It certainly wasn’t the many who showed to express their disapproval of the health care plans. Sure, they were loud and demanding, but they weren’t the ones throwing the punches.
Yes it does need to stop! No question about it.
Again I must ask, with all these meeting, or at least MOST of them, being held in dem strongholds, and the dems bussing people in, can only fill a few rolls, what makes these people think that all the folks attending who are angry are Republicans or right wing in any way? Seems that would be impossible. Are they demonizing their own party, too, with these radical statements? They cannot all be right wing, sorry, that would make no sense.
Hard to confiscate something moving at 1100 fps
SEIU is today’s KU KLUX KLAN of the Democrat party...replacing the old one they started way back when.
That one in particular is one of those I was posting about. He is a very popular Rep. in MD. No way all of them were Republicans.
The idiots may try to stop it with their coconut heads. most of these goons are as stupid as a post.
Very good. Then the “townhalls” can devolve into nice, safe, Democrat dog-and-pony shows, which is what they wanted in the first place. That is to say, no real freedom of speech, and no feedback from people who oppose the bill.
Anyone tries to take leaflets away from me and they’ll be picking their teeth up off the floor.
The best way to do this is to make a blanket rule that no one can bring signs or leaflets and to advertise this fact as you do turn out in the weeks preceding the event. You can distribute your own signs in the event and offer them one as they enter if you choose to allow them to enter, the HCAN website instructs.”
And what provision of the law and Constitution gave these self-appointed goobers the right to decide what signs you can carry. Take them to court.
Right on! Good for Towson, MD!
It is called free speech, a guaranteed right. I will not be silenced or marginalized. Socialism stinks as anything but an academic example of a failed system.
He is more like Lincoln all the time.
There’s going to be some trouble if this keeps up.
A few of my friends asked me to go to some of these meetings to keep an eye on the thugs. It makes me sick to see union members attacking the people who most likely pay their salaries. My friends and I are all union members who despise the politics of the union. They never miss an opportunity to screw the working man by supporting the wrong side. Union support of illegal immigration is a perfect example of the union stabbing working Americans in the back.
Welcoming committee in DC on 9/12 ??
punks are asking for a smackdown.
They have a rude awakening coming in September. Well, maybe not Pelosi. Her brain processes are so disconnected even her skull is asking, WTF?
To paraphrase Toni Morrison, a union or ACORN thug is a softy in a toughie suit, while a patriot is a toughie in a softy suit. They are ignoramuses and don't know what they are unleashing.
Welcome to Weimar folks...
Amen and amen! It's not like those who are against Obamacare went to confrontation, in person, at town hall sessions as a first response. Congress critters have shown they are all but immune to less insistent methods of their constituents expressing their lack of approval for something. They had limited success with stopping amnesty, but since then it's like the Congress has taken an oath not to fall for that again. Drill here, drill now is another example of how resistant the ruling class has become to input from the peons. If you don't have lots and lots of money or other quid pro quo to offer they will have nothing to do with you. Ditto the stimulus. Ditto the car makers. Ditto TARP. Ditto anything that even smells of conservative ideals.
I think we should adopt a logo for Stop the Foolishness movement that uses a good old stop sign as its center piece. Push hard to associate the ubiquitous octagon-shaped, white text on a red back ground to represent how fed up we are with all the BS spending and borrowing and encroachment on our live, and turning nearly half the population of a once proud individualistic nation in moochers! Make the association so well known that every time someone approaches a stop sign they will be reminded of just how out of control government at every level is.
And when we express the reason for our outrage we should always be sure to include not just health care, but the whole list of things that we are protesting, spending overall, taxing, control, non-responsiveness to our input, the list goes on and on.
It's really not accurate to frame the movement as Stop the Foolishness, it goes far beyond foolishness. Foolishness is playing practical jokes on people at the office. In fact, it goes beyond even madness, approaching the level of psychotic.
I am not a creative person, but I think a good graphic design person could make a logo that would sweep the nation, much like the ribbons of various colors have. Might even include a red ribbon, as suggested by a caller to Bill Bennett's radio show suggested yesterday morning, in the logo.
Anyway, Congress has no one to blame in all of this except themselves. But like the abuser their first response to doing something stupid and damaging is to say “Look what you made me do.”
Just food for thought.
And that is why when the first punch was thrown it was said by me that we must hold the President accountable for the violence he started and encouraged.
Seems to me this has to change if we intend to take back our country and return it to the precepts that made it the greatest nation in the history of the world. The Pilgrims quickly learned that socialism doesn't work. They soon discovered that removing the penalty for failure does little more than increase the odds of failure.
A big difference between conservatives and liberals is that conservatives see “in-your-face” and public protest as a last resort. Liberals, OTOH, consider it the weapon of choice, to be deployed at the first sign of opposition. The conservative uses it with great reluctance. Liberals refrain from using it with great reluctance.
And, after the crisis has passed, the conservative goes back to life without confrontation. The liberal goes back to looking for the next opportunity to confront.
And, we have much better bumper stickers!
