DNC Disinformation Emails Being Frantically Sent to Evaporating Obama Cultists
(for example) The Jawa Report ^ | Aug 05, 2009 | Jen O’Malley Dillon

Posted on 08/05/2009 8:49:41 PM PDT by grey_whiskers

[NOTE: Comments in italics by The Jawa Report, photos and other snark in bold by grey_whiskers...]

There’s been a lot of media coverage about organized mobs intimidating lawmakers, disrupting town halls, and silencing real discussion about the need for real health insurance reform.

As opposed to Democratic Underground bragging about disrupting Town hall Meetings on President Bush's Social Security Reform.

The truth is, it’s a sham. These “grassroots protests” are being organized and largely paid for by Washington special interests and insurance companies (they decline to name any, because there aren't any -ed.) who are desperate to block reform. They’re trying to use lies and fear to break the President and his agenda for change (she hasn't obviously seen the fearmongering, unintentionally hilarious ad her own organization released today -ed.).

As opposed to ACORN's home-defender teams?

Health insurance reform is about our lives, our jobs, and our families — we can’t let distortions and intimidation get in the way. We need to expose these outrageous tactics, and we’re counting on you to help. Can you read these “5 facts about the anti-reform mobs,” then pass them along to your friends and family?

Astroturf at its finest.

5 facts about the anti-reform anti-government takeover "mobs."

1. These disruptions are being funded and organized by out-of-district special-interest groups and insurance companies who fear that health insurance reform could help Americans (no, they aren't, but lies and DNC fearmongering are more fun than facts -ed.), but hurt their bottom line. A group run by the same folks who made the “Swiftboat” ads against John Kerry is compiling a list of congressional events in August to disrupt. An insurance company coalition has stationed employees in 30 states to track where local lawmakers hold town-hall meetings. (again, she doesn't mention any by name, meaning that she doesn't know of any because she's lying and she'd be sued if she did name one -ed.)

Gee, is this anything like when ANSWER sponsors "spontaneous" pro-illegal-immigration rallies nationwide? The Swiftboat people all served with or under John Kerry, and were speaking firsthand. And incidentally, since you mentioned John Kerry, when is he going to release his full SF 180? (...your top Dems never like to release their own government documentation, like Barack Obama's birth certificate, or Hillary Clinton's Rose Law Firm Billing Records, or pay their own taxes very much -- and they're not subjecting *themselves* to Obamacare either, come to think of it.) And your own claim that insurance companies are tracking where the town-hall meetings are being held is *NOT* the same as paying professional rent-a-mobs to show up.

2. People are scared because they are being fed frightening lies. These crowds are being riled up by anti-reform lies being spread by industry front groups (who in industry? -ed.) that invent smears to tarnish the President’s plan and scare voters. But as the President has repeatedly said, health insurance reform will create more health care choices for the American people, not reduce them (false - Obama himself has said, on multiple occasions, that the aim is to get single-payer health care instituted, which is by definition anti-choice. -ed.). If you like your insurance or your doctor, you can keep them, and there is no “government takeover” in any part of any plan supported by the President or Congress. (also a lie - Obama wants single-payer care, which is government-run -ed.)

Click here for Obama's own words, unedited.

Or you have Kathleen Sibelius being PWN3D. I didn't hear anything about insurance ONCE. ...and there's Steny Hoyer getting grilled about Obama's taking months to pick out a DOG. Yep, just typical insurance-company talking points to me. And what about the ridiculous new Harry and Louise ad, which IS paid for by industry groups?

3. Their actions are getting more extreme (yes, protesting and dissenting, once "the highest form of patriotism" under Bush, is "extreme." -ed.). Texas protesters brought signs displaying a tombstone for Rep. Lloyd Doggett and using the “SS” symbol to compare President Obama’s policies to Nazism. Maryland Rep. Frank Kratovil was hanged in effigy outside his district office (Sarah Palin was hanged in effigy outside a home during the campaign last fall, and her church was burned to the ground. Where was the DNC email? -ed.). Rep. Tim Bishop of New York had to be escorted to his car by police after an angry few disrupted his town hall meeting — and more examples like this come in every day. And they have gone beyond just trying to derail the President’s health insurance reform plans, they are trying to “break” the President himself and ruin his Presidency. (liberals during the Bush years, on the other hand, wanted Bush to succeed in everything he did, without question. Look! A unicorn! -ed.)

For the dissent, here's Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

But I guess that only applies as long as you avoid criticizing Dems: Sen. Feinstein has elderly constituents arrested (from Democrat Underground, no less, so the story is not a right-wing hit piece). And I don't notice that Republicans are having troublesome constituents arrested, even if those Republicans are skipping out on further "Town Hall" meetings.

And here are the Dem characterizations of President Bush:

4. Their goal is to disrupt and shut down legitimate conversation. Protesters have routinely shouted down representatives trying to engage in constructive dialogue with voters, and done everything they can to intimidate and silence regular people who just want more information. One attack group has even published a manual instructing protesters to “stand up and shout” and try to “rattle” lawmakers to prevent them from talking peacefully with their constituents. (the left and Democrat activists, on the other hand, were never guilty of this during the Bush years. EVER. -ed.)

Here are some of the tolerant responses from the left:

Kill Bush caller on C-Span

Medea Benjamin and Condi Rice (and look who's leading the hearing -- Joe "stand up, chuck" Biden"! (And if you look at 2:37, you can see Barack Obama too...)

Or Code Pink and John McCain

5. Republican leadership is irresponsibly cheering on the thuggish crowds. (GO OUT THERE AND GET IN THEIR FACES - Barack Obama (D) -ed.) Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner issued a statement applauding and promoting a video of the disruptions and looking forward to “a long, hot August for Democrats in Congress.” (poor widdle babies have to hear from the people they work for who they're ignoring and insulting - call the waaahmbulance -ed.)

Ah, yes. Remember the AIG executives should resign or commit suicide? -- to speak of inciting violence?

Or, of course, you can check out Michelle Malkin for what real mob violence looks like.

It’s time to expose this charade, (see text of this email for the real charade -ed.) before it gets more dangerous. Please send these facts to everyone you know. You can also post them on your website, blog, or Facebook page. (in other words, organize, organize, organize while we pretend the opposition is somehow not allowed to. -ed.)

But somehow, no matter how much you astroturf, you can't beat genuine grass-roots viral content, like this:

Now, more than ever, we need to stand strong together and defend the truth. (the truth is, this Obamacare plan raises the deficit, decreases quality, increases costs, limits choice, puts the government in charge of rationing care and destroys private insurance. And Americans know it. -ed.)

Like the 9-11 Truthers, or Bill Clinton's "it depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is?"

Nice try. But Obama's poll numbers, and the approval of Obamacare, are going down faster than Monica Lewinsky.

As far as the DUmmies are concerned, what’s good for the goose is NOT good for the gander! They can spew crap all day long, and nothing is said about it - but once again, like a vicious cycle, crap is said about the DUmmies & they go running to mommy! (Whaaaaaaaa!)

The thing is, they don’t know how to fight. They know how to backbite and act as if the power they pretend to have is real.

They think they’ve been winning, and we haven’t even started.
Conservatives don’t riot.
They war.
When they have no other choice because they can no longer stomach the evil around them, they War.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security
So they war.
The question is, do the Dummies, socialists and Marxists falsely believe that such people no longer exist?
Because they will push people to that point if they continue what they are doing to our country and her people.

The lord will not be mocked, and I have my salvation.
God help them if they keep pushing.

These crowds are being riled up by anti-reform lies being spread by industry front groups...

This idiot author can't even keep their story straight. in point one the crowds are organized and paid for by special interests. In this point 2 they are all of a sudden duped individuals and not part of some astroturf plan.

I have just one word of advice to's one thing to slander, lie and demonize these protesters but it's another thing still for your to believe your own propaganda. Self delusion does seem to be a core state for liberals but it does you no good to buy into your own lies.

Good summary!

Must say that the success of past movements are mostly due to the lack of timely information flow, but those days are over.

We still have people that keep chanting various flavors of ‘give peace a chance’ and so on, but for the most part are clueless about what is REALLY going on today, which is the climax of long-planned actions on the part of, well, those in power today!

Thanks, but most of the work was The Jawa Report.

I merely sharpened my claws, meow.

If Obamacare can not withstand the scrutiny of the public forum with its free debate, discussion, and analysis, it doesn't deserve to survive. Period.

That's what democracy is all about. What we're seeing here from Obama and his Democrat minions, however, is good old-fashioned thuggery.

They're trying to attach the MOB word to our movement when clearly it represents the MOB in the White House and congress.

Keep on associating words like MOB and Thugs with fits so well.
