Dateline Washington August,4 2009, the Whitehouse:
'Opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient, but as our second president famously said, "facts are stubborn things."Scary chain emails and videos are starting to percolate on the internet, breathlessly claiming, for example, to "uncover" the truth about the President’s health insurance reform positions...'
So starts the early morning post by the Whitehouses blog under the heading "Facts are Stubborn Things"
A short time ago I did a two part series on censorship of freedom of speech in Canada . Little did I think I would be posting this title so soon. But After seeing this post on the Whitehouse web sight I felt compelled to sit down and write this post.
Actually I got MAD! What in the world is this none sense? Its nothing short of crazy! But it doesn't stop there this insane post goes on to say...
"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..." then it calls on citizens to- basically spy on their neighbors if you will- and report them to the WhiteHouse at firstname.lastname@example.org
People this is chilling. This smacks so hard of potential censorship that it is scary! Hell this is beyond scary it is terrifying!
This CRAP comes on the heels of liberals like Dan Rather calling for a Whitehouse office, commission, or whatever to "Save journalism".
As the teenagers say o.m.g GIVE ME A BREAK! Excuse me for shouting but this has me totally twisted off! Who do these clowns in Washington think they are? Democrats in recent days referred to the TeaParty movement as-well as other opposition movements as "A Mob", "Angry mob", " unwilling to have a reasoned debate", and the list goes on and on.
This sort of stuff is why I started blogging. Well after reading this I shot the Whitehouse, through their address email@example.com the following missive.
'Hey check out www.todayspoliticsfreedomlover.blogspot.com. I run it and I have a lot of stuff their that criticizes health care congress an the president,. Last I checked the first amendment was still in force Try taking care of what’s important rather than being paranoid of the citizens of this country. Eugene O’Neill a.k.a. the freedomlover.' There it is. I turned my self in to the WhiteHouse. I don't care what they like or don't like. Freedom of speech is a cornerstone of this democracy. If these fools think the opposition is bad now. If they keep this up they are going to spark a REAL REVOLUTION.
Evidently Obama, Pelosi and Reid. never studied American history.
Folks if ever their was a time to cry FREEDOM!!!! Its now
Gene O'Neill the Freedomlover.
