Return of the Enemies List

posted at 8:39 am on August 6, 2009 by

Is this what Obama, in his inaugural speech, meant by putting “an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas?”

Hope and change!

The White House request that members of the public report anyone who is spreading “disinformation” about the proposed national health care makeover could lead to a White House database of political opponents that will be both secret and permanent, according to Republican lawyers on the Senate Judiciary Committee who are examining the plan’s possible implementation…

Senate Judiciary Committee lawyers studying the proposal say that although there is no absolutely settled law on the matter, the White House plan is likely not covered by the Privacy Act, which prohibits government agencies from keeping any records “describing how any individual exercises rights guaranteed by the First Amendment unless expressly authorized by statute or by the individual about whom the record is maintained.” Therefore, it appears the White House can legally keep records of the emails and other communications it receives in response to Phillips’ request.

Those lawyers also point out that the White House is not covered by the Freedom of Information Act, which means it would not have to release any information on the plan to members of the public who make a request.

You’ve got your marching orders. Do your duty, tovarishii. The fate of the country depends on you. In the spirit of bipartisanship, I offer the following posters to encourage you in your quest to find the enemies of hopenchange among us.

Courage

Excellent work, as always, Slu.

This is yet another great example of “What if Bush had done this?” Remember the outrage when Ari Fleischer let slip after 9/11 that people needed to “watch what you say?” All sorts of liberal paranoia erupted. Yet now we have a White House OFFICIALLY using government resources to collect information on opponents of the President’s policies. And the media silence is deafening!

Obooba can spy on us now because the war on terror is over: I guess it’s part of the new “peace dividend.”

Well done, slu.

inchdeep on August 6, 2009 at 1:00 PM

You completely dodge the issue to bash on the posters. Have you no concern for this particular action by the administration, or do you chalk it up to ‘its for a good cause.’ Its absolutely ridiculous and cause for concern that an administration would ask fellow Americans to report on their neighbors on any issue. And this is only the beginning. What happens when they ask Americans to report others who spread “fishy” information on global warming, or abortion, or the second ammendment?

So if you think this is okay today, to report fellow Americans to the administration, than I hope you find it equally ok when the Republicans gain control again. Or will you be the one creating the poster circle jerk?

He can think an inch deep. That’s what the insane liberals call DEEP THINKING.

Is it official? Can we now call this FishyGate?

That’s it…I’m report all of you to Linda Douglas-Goebbels at Der Fuhrer’s Ministry of Information office. You’ll be sorry now, wait and see.

Hey, does anybody know if you can get extra C4C vouchers for turning in traitorous dissidents like yourselves? I want to trade my VW bus in for a Prius…

Wyznowski on August 6, 2009 at 2:03 PM

What is it lately with the Trolls?
All they manage to do is pop up and throw their little fizzing pee-drenched bottle rocket bombs and disappear.

It almost like they can’t defend their agenda or something.

Chainsaw56 on August 6, 2009 at 2:07 PM

It’s the Obama Army. They control 80% of the media, but the internet is a powerful place to get information, so they want to control it, too.

“Get in their faces.”

This country has elected a leftist thug. (Several, actually.) He has no shortage of flying monkeys, who would like very much to discourage conservatives.

It just makes you wonder why they can’t even defend their agenda, all the they can do is throw crappola grenades into the mix and cowardly run off like little yellow vermin.

Pathetic!

Chainsaw56 on August 6, 2009 at 2:23 PM

Hey, stop giving little yellow vermin a bad name.

If memory serves me right the Nazis used the same type of posters! Such as the propaganda posters shown on this page!

Will the NYT steal and print this list of subversive swine? No. To do so might damage the country. They are patriots all the way.

I sent the web site a “F88K you Nazi bastards” and the e-mail came back and said the site admin would not allow it.

inspectorudy on August 6, 2009 at 3:28 PM

So he wants us to report the names of people spreading dis-information about the health-care bill…

Ok, to do my part I will be reporting the following people:
Nacy Pelosi
Barak Obama
Joe Biden
Harry Reid
Henry Waxman
Chris Dodd
and so on. Heck, I could give them 400 people in just one or two emails. Won’t that be great?
