New DNC ad: Mobs of right-wing lunatics want to feast on your flesh

posted at 12:15 pm on August 5, 2009 by Allahpundit

A video version of yesterday’s communique from DNC headquarters about mobs of right-wing extremists whose extreme mobbiness threatens to mob ObamaCare with extremism. All that’s missing are the captions you used to see in trailers for 50s horror movies. “THRILL to angry conservatives walking around with signs. TREMBLE as a woman holding an American flag yells at a congressman. SCREAM as Democrats absorb one one-millionth the degree of demonization George Bush suffered over eight years.”

No need for outrage, though. Instead, celebrate the fact that even with a Democratic president, a filibuster-proof Congress, and the lure of “free” ice cream in the form of socialized medicine, the left’s somehow managed to turn ObamaCare into a clusterfark of such epic proportions that their health-care message has now actually been reduced to “Don’t listen to the Republicans — they’re crazy.” Apart from Josh Marshall characteristically wetting himself by describing the townhall backlash as “civic vigilanteism” (sic), my favorite reaction comes from Tapper, framing the astounding demagoguery you’re about to see with the understatement only a studiously dispassionate newsman can muster:

While offensive and even racist posters and protestors have shown up at too many of these town halls, it’s not clear that they represent the mainstream of those who have organized to exercise their First Amendment right to speak any more so than the liberal protestors who compared President Bush to a Nazi represented mainstream liberal thought, or even the mainstream of anti-war protestors at any given event.

Indeed it’s not clear, especially with 52 percent of respondents telling Quinnipiac that The One’s handled health care badly. But enough blather. After you watch the DNC’s 50s horror movie, be sure to watch the B-picture the boss posted last night about what extremist mobs really look like. Exit question: Which right-wing nut warned yesterday that left-wing extremists might want to dial it down a bit themselves? Answer here.

Very effective ad. The RNC is using angry white mobs to try to do their dirty work. It just serves to make them all look like the sterotype of redneck morons. I hope the mobs keep it up for months to come! This should be very fun.

Yes. Targeting 52% of the American public as “mobs” should work out very well for you at the ballot box next year when “mobs” of voters throw your a$$es out onto the streets.

After all, I leanred from watching liberal mobs during the Bush years that This is what democracy looks like.

Interesting that dissent no longer appears to be the highest form of patriotism now that a statist corripticrat is in the White House

What you’re seeing on MSNBC that the anchors are trying to desperately to dispel was known during the Bush years as speaking truth to power.

Keep it up. Demonize 52% of the public. You’ve lost moderates. You’re losing moderate Democrats. By this time next year, after a long campaign of playing dictator, you’ll be out of office again and will revert to organizing protests funded by unions and liberal advocacy groups.

52% of Americans are side-show freaks for opposing the government takeover of health care?

Are you listening yet, or did you just swill down a gallon of the White House kook aid again?

The polling is not trending in your direction, champ. Perhaps that’s the reason for the hysterical, fearmongering ads run against Obama’s opponents (who he’s determined are the American people).

Just got this in my email box:

bridget –

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.

The truth is, it’s a sham. These “grassroots protests” are being organized and largely paid for by Washington special interests and insurance companies who are desperate to block reform. They’re trying to use lies and fear to break the President and his agenda for change.

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?

5 facts about the anti-reform 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, 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.

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 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. 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.

3. Their actions are getting more extreme. 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. 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.

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.

5. Republican leadership is irresponsibly cheering on the thuggish crowds. 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.”

It’s time to expose this charade, 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.

Now, more than ever, we need to stand strong together and defend the truth.

Thanks,

Jen

I hope the DNC runs this ad frequently in every major market. It tells the majority of Americans opposed to Obama Care and his other economic policies exactly what Obama thinks of us.

America needs to hear our president telling us that he’s right and we’re wrong, so we should just shut up and go away.

Bishop on August 5, 2009 at 1:19 PM

Apparently, the best the Democrats can do about this grassroots uprising is to criticize their clothing.

In other words, if we don’t roll around in mud doing drugs, or look like we got run over by trucks (usually indications you’re dealing with the “mobs” of the terminally employed), we’re “not genuine.”

So according to the Democrats, you have to be dressed in tattered rags, be “poor looking” and appear to have just come off a week-long heroine jag at Burning Man to be a “real” protester.

I’m loving this. I can’t wait to see what excuse they come up with tomorrow for ignoring the polling data.

Good Lt on August 5, 2009 at 1:19 PM

This is going to backfire.

The liberals who think making fun of constituents is a good idea are in for a shock.

Look, I’ve been to tea parties, and my moderate and sorta liberal friends and family know that. They also know I’m not being funded by insurance companies or anybody else. Even if they disagree with me, they know that claims of astroturfing are just BS. the same is probably true for other tea party attendees.

Only the hardcore Kool Aid people who don’t associate with any conservatives are going to think this is an effective line of attack.

Let me be perfectly clear, this kind of ad achieves one thing: it makes the dems look like the childish little bullies that they are. Waaaaa, they don’t like our plan…waaaaaah. The fact of the matter is, if they were smart enough to come up with a plan that works, a plan that everyone could agree on instead of cowardly lapping up the president’s ridiculous notion of what health care should be like in America, nobody would be protesting at all. But they aren’t smart enough to do that, and the confidence people have in them being able to do anything competently has eroded to the point where, yea, a lot of us are ANGRY. They can’t be trusted with a clunker, much less a person’s organs or treatment plans. We didn’t do that THEY DID.

dcwvu on August 5, 2009 at 1:09 PM

Good to know that you don’t consider liberals “ordinary”. Finally, we have some common ground.

Hmmm, I seem to remember that unemployment was substantially lower from 2001-2007, before Stretch, Dingy, and Ogabe gained power.

I love the amnesia inherent in the left.

PimFortuynsGhost on August 5, 2009 at 1:27 PM

Which means you’re a snob and Boxer is obviously behind the fashion trend curve.

An emphatic “yes” on both accounts.

dcwvu on August 5, 2009 at 1:27 PM

Of course, if everyone at these townhalls showed up in shorts, t-shirts and sandals they would be derided as ill-dressed hicks who didn’t have the decency to dress-up a bit to speak with their legislator.

Bishop on August 5, 2009

Damned if you dress and damned if you don’t.

All the “ordinary” people you know are locked in their closet spanking it raw to a copy of “Dreams from My Father” by Barack Obama and repeating the words “Hope” and “Change” between the strokes. Just like you.

dcwvu on August 5, 2009 at 1:24 PM

You are naive. You do realize that presidents can’t bring us “peace and prosperity. Oh and by the way Barack Obama hasn’t brought us peace or prosperity. Unemployment is sky high and he bulked up our presence in Afghanistan.

Please ask them this one question, and FORCE them to give you an answer.

If this health care plan is so great, why won’t Congress force themselves and their families to go on it.

Jeff from WI on August 5, 2009 at 1:29 PM

All of the people in those videos where white.

I guess it was just a coincidence that they included a little still snippet of a white guy grinning next to a lynched effigy, right?

Who does that effigy represent, by the way? It’s blurry, but I thought it looked like George Bush.

Or is it just so much more fun stirring it up here at HA?

VibrioCocci on August 5, 2009 at 1:29 PM

Of course, what AlPundit wont report are the following examples of right-wing nuttiness:

“High on the list has to be the group of Tea Baggers who hanged an effigy of Rep. Frank Kratovil (D-MD) from a noose in front of his district office a few weeks ago,” Josh noted. “Then there was the case yesterday where a few folks at a tea bag protest outside a townhall meeting in Hartford called on Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) to commit suicide as a way to cure his recently diagnosed prostate cancer. And even though it lacked any clear appeal to the murder of public officials or even a good suicide joke, I’m still pretty fond of this case on Tuesday where the head of the local Tea Party group up in Rome, New York just started yelling ‘liar’ over and over at a clearly befuddled and caught off guard Steny Hoyer.”

Let’s not forget the protestor carrying a tombstone with Rep. Lloyd Doggett’s (D-Texas) name on it — at the same event with an activist carrying a sign with Nazi “SS” lettering.

I mean, you cant seriously contend that the goal of the right wing protests is to air their side of the debate. It’s not. Their strategy is just to be loudmouthed and disruptive.

The memo, authored by Robert MacGuffie, who runs the website rightprinciples.com, suggests that tea partiers should “pack the hall… spread out” to make their numbers seem more significant, and to “rock-the-boat early in the Rep’s presentation…to yell out and challenge the Rep’s statements early…. to rattle him, get him off his prepared script and agenda…stand up and shout and sit right back down.”

Do protestors have a right to do this? Depending on the exact circumstances, yes they do. Do they have a right to be taken seriously? Do undecided folks have to consider their yelling, interrupting voices when weighing the merits of the case? Of course not.

Even better was the threat to the auto bond holders, “My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks.”

This junta in Washington is not playing by any normal rules. They are wed to a scorched Earth strategy and would love to watch this nation burn to the ground if they can’t kill it with their legislation and regulations designed to crush the life out of it.

Peace? We were attacked months into his presidency because Clinton refused to take OBL out when he had the chance. Peace isn’t the be-all-end-all, my hippie friend.

As for prosperity, take a look at the unemployment rates and level of the Dow Jones prior to Dems taking control of Congress in January ’07. In fact, take a look at the difference between the deficits under Bush and the trillion-dollar deficit Obama’s already built up.

amerpundit on August 5, 2009 at 1:32 PM

Wow, TPM and Washington Monthly as sources. Was World Worker’s Daily too much of a giveaway?

PimFortuynsGhost on August 5, 2009 at 1:32 PM

Why do you people even bother to respond to dcwvu? This person is simply a snarky little sound-bite parrot. Whose life is so barren that he/she has to seek significance by trolling. Haven’t you learned that it’s futile to argue sensibly with people like that?

It is a fact that most mobs storming these town halls are right wing nuts.

The majority of Americans are against ObamaCare, but most of the pissed off people at these meetings are “right wing nuts”. Fascinating.

I love how the e-mail repeats the lie that if you like your existing coverage you can keep it. They can keep that up as long as they want, but when (conservatively) tens of millions of people get dumped on to the public option from employer-provided plans they’d have preferred to keep, you can be G*******d sure they’ll remember.
