Communist states have tight control over the media and force all published information to be from official sources and to be vetted through the state. Yet recently the democratic government of the United States posted the following statement on the White House’s official government web site:
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 email@example.com.
For the federal government to ask Americans to send to them the emails of dissenting voices on the healthcare issue may sound innocent enough but it is far from innocent.
These are the thoughts and practices of totalitarian regimes and it can only lead to nefarious federal targeting of individuals. What will the White House do with this information? Will they promise not to target those who offer their contradictory opinions to the President’s socialized medicine policy? Will they not delve into the identities of those who have a different opinion from the President on the issue?
The White House has actually and officially embarked upon an American witch-hunt by soliciting Americans to turn over dissenters of administration policy.
Hitler did this, Saddam Hussein did this but who in the world ever expected American President Barrack Hussein Obama to do something like this?
Oh of course President Obama’s intent is not as nefarious as Hitler or Saddam Hussein. At least we hope not. But whose to stop him from having the IRS audit a blogger who claims that Obamacare is going to cost all Americans more in taxes and result in a loss of quality healthcare? By the administration’s definition such a statement is disinformation. Will they emulate Iraq and pull down my blog because of that opinion?
Exactly how un-American is the administration prepared to get?
They have already flagged conservatives as terrorists. They have done everything possible to paint those who participate in Tea Party demonstrations as dangerous Republican backed extremists and they have had a mentality similar to the British fists that attempted to quell the first American revolution against the Crown.
I have forwarded the follow message to the White House’s firstname.lastname@example.org email address. It reads as follows:
As for flagging disinformation, I am the author of a political web site that sets the record straight. It defies those policies which increase America’s march to socialism under liberal leadership. The information in it may not quite jive with the propaganda presented by the White House but I offer it to you as a site for you to react to in your vile campaign to flag emails and to police the opinions of the American people.
Perhaps placement in a gulag will be your wish for me. Maybe you will take a page from Iran and take my site down. However the current statist regime wants to treat it, please do. I relish the attention that your heavy handed communist fists would bring by silencing this American. You can find my site at https://politics247.wordpress.com/ . I look forward to your retribution and the ensuing struggle that it will give birth to.
So I fully expect to be placed on a White House terrorist watch list by morning.
And since wordpress is a platform for my dissenting voice I fully anticipate that it too shall soon fall victim to the government scrutiny and with it so will all of you who state an opinion that contradicts the new American socialist hero and liberal messiah President and Supreme Commanding Ruler Barrack H. Obama.
