The President of the United States is asking the American people to inform him about the private conversations and political beliefs of anyone who would dare to oppose Obamacare.
On the official website of the White House, officials in the Obama administration are asking their supporters to inform them of any viewpoint on Obamacare they see or hear that they consider to be “fishy” – even if it is in casual conversation with their own family and friends:
“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 firstname.lastname@example.org.”
A YouTube video produced by members of the Obama administration that explains this new informer program is below…..
What in the world?
Since when did it become acceptable for the president of the United States to recruit “informers”?
Do we still live in the United States of America or has this nation now become Nazi Germany?
Senator John Cornyn of Texas was so upset when he heard about all of this that he actually wrote a very strong letter to Obama. Cornyn correctly recognized that this type of “flagging” of individual citizens sets a very dangerous precedent:
“By requesting that citizens send ‘fishy’ emails to the White House, it is inevitable that the names, email addresses, IP addresses, and private speech of U.S. citizens will be reported to the White House.”
But Cornyn is not the only member of Congress that is seriously concerned about this by a long shot.
“If you get an e-mail from your neighbor and it doesn’t sound right, send it to the White House?” Fox News quotes Senator John Barasso from Wyoming as saying. “People, I think all across America are going to say is this 1984? What is happening here? Is big brother watching?”
So is all of this concern just an overreaction?
Sadly it appears that the answer is no.
The reality is that already a number of Democratic activists have been more than eager to “flag” even their own family and friends.
Just check out the following quotes from the Democratic Underground website…..
“Just sent one from my whackadoo cousin”
“Forwarded her msg to the flag email address while I copied her on it….BURN!”
“I turned in my sister. That felt good.”
Here are some more quotes from another location on that same Democratic website…..
“Enough of the talk…we need to get busy and start putting together a databank of healthcare opponents.”
“I sent in two flags and found two others to send in flags as well.”
“The more reports sent to the White House the better!”
Even many in the mainstream media are going completely insane. In the video below, Chris Matthews of MSNBC actually suggests that officials should strap town hall protesters down and inject them with truth serum to see if they are racists or not…..
Whether you are in favor of Obamacare of not, this type of activity should be extremely troubling to you.
When the White House asks people to “flag” their friends and neighbors and people start doing it with enthusiasm, it shows that the United States is much closer to Nazi Germany or the U.S.S.R. than any of us would dare admit.
It may feel good to “flag” someone else, but how would it feel if you got “flagged” and put in a government database forever?
The reality is that this type of thing opens the door to great evil. If you cross that line and you start “informing” on your friends and family, then you have gone over to a very dark place.
Don’t do it.
