Report Obama to His Own Gestapo

Obama's Thought Police Unleashed... Barack Obama, wants you to turn in anyone you know of who is saying bad things about his health insurance reform. Does that sound American to you? Or does it sound a little bit like something that Hermann Göring would admire? After all, as Hitler's commander of the Geheime Staatspolizei (Gestapo), Göring would have approved of such tactics. But there is a great twist to this story, which we'll get into momentarily. White House actually had the cajones to put this on their "Briefing Room" blog (with emphasis added), in a post titled "Facts Are Stubborn Things": 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 Okay, here's the twist. YOU are urged to turn in Barack Obama for the same offense for which he wants you to turn in others. Credit for this goes to Adam Bitely's NetRight Nation Blog, which advises us to turn the tables on Obama by reporting him for "not telling the truth on Health Care." Bitely says, "Let's try and flood that inbox with as many reports about Obama and his minions attempting to deceive the public as possible." The White House's blog post includes a creepy video featuring Linda Douglass, a propaganda expert who hold the post of communications director for the White House’s Health Reform Office. In the creepy video, Douglass "addresses one example" of "fishy" statements about health care reform. As the video progresses, you can imagine her morphing into Josef Geobbels, Hitler's Propaganda Leader. Imagine this: You get an email from a neighbor, a co-worker, a family member that addresses health insurance reform. Perhaps they say something to you on the street, over coffee, wherever. If your friend/neighbor/family member says or writes something "fishy," something that doesn't sound quite right, about health insurance reform, you are asked by the President of the United States to turn them in by contacting the White House. This is not only un-American, it's illogical and inefficent. Why limit this Gestapo-like action to health care reform? Why not ask all the good little Change Nazis out there to report emails and conversations in which something "fishy" is said about any of Obama's pet programs? Wouldn't that just make more sense? In a Hitlerian kind of way, that is? Consider this: If Obama's Ministry of Speech and Thought Control think that has "worked," what's to prevent them from going all out and asking Americans to narc each other out for the slightest outburst of criticism of the Chosen One? I assume that Obama's deaf, dumb and blind followers still retain their sense of smell, but will they notice the incredible stench of the speech-intimidation initiative? We can only hope so.
