Obama turns to the internet again

by Cylinsier

President Obama's administration revealed a new web site today aimed at combating the misinformation being generated by the right wing or lobbyists or maybe both on health care. The site, aims to give US citizens a reality check about what the health care reform is supposed to do...and what it won't do.

Blogitards. I can't figure out if you are fucking ignorant, conniving or just plain stupid. It's astroturfing. It consists of two things: Obama sending out marching orders about having citizens visit congressmen. There are two parts to this. The first e-mail asks people to sign up to visit their congressman on another website and the second part of it is a flier you get when you sign up. It's a PDF file, but you get a flier when you sign up which gives instructions on how to behave and what to say when you go visit your congressman. This is Obama attempting to enlist drones to go and calm these asshole members of Congress, one-on-one and tell them how much they're loved and how much they're appreciated and how much health care reform is supported to counter the mobs and the Nazis that are showing up at the public town hall meetings. This website is "Organizing for America" with the Obama logo and everything.

The second part, if you do as instructed, and proceed to their website to schedule an office visit for health reform, after you sign up, then they send a little PDF file: Office Visits for Health Reform Guide. "Before your visit, call ahead, print out the attached flier and write out why this matters to you and take it with you to your office visit with your congressman." This is Organizing for America. This is a fucking virtual Astroturf script for you retards when visiting your congressman, sent out to all nutless monkey drone BO supporters. And then, you useful idiots will know what to do during your visit.

And why is all this happening? Rasmussen Reports: "When it comes to health care decisions, 51% of the nation's voters fear the federal government more than private insurance companies," so now we know why you mid numbed robots are out there demonizing and villainizing the insurance companies. "The latest Rasmussen Reports national phone survey finds that 41% hold the opposite view and fear the insurance companies more." So wherever you look in this debate, Obama and the Democrats are on the negative side, and they're having to lie and rally and intimidate people into supporting it.

The people who oppose this are fully informed, up to speed, showing up on their own volition. They're certainly not having to go to websites to find out where to go, what to say when you get there, and what to tell people after you leave. And in the meantime, the White House staff put out this notion that it is these people that are stirring up mobs -- when formal marching orders are coming from three different White House websites, where they have their own war room to try and deal with it.

Rasmussen Reports is own and operated by a former paid consultant of George W. Bush. Furthermore, the polls have been shown on several occasions to lean very conservative. It kind of makes you look like a moron to cite them.

Fordham University is a private Jesuit school, which I can understand for someone like you is probably the bastion of objectivity. The fact remains that you repeatedly cite biased sources to support your incorrect information, and you seem to be incapable of presenting your side of the argument like a rational adult, instead preferring to pepper you every sentence with ad hominem attacks while simultaneously crying foul whenever you perceive any kind of response that might border on personal criticism. That's why everyone that reads your comments knows you're a tool and a bitch. But as I've said before, I'm glad you take so much time out of your day to share you bullshit ideas with us. Its nice to know that our biting wit and articulate observations on society and culture are just too potent to ignore. Hey, you should visit the site I posted and sign up for emails. When they come, it'll give you some inspiration to come back and admonish us more for not being stupid enough to fall for the same propaganda that you do.
