Grassroots organization Organizing for America recently promoted a phone campaign to be held on September 11 (Patriot Day) when members would call their state senators and urge them to support the healthcare reform bill. The website soon took down the page promoting the campaign. A screenshot of the page can be seen on the Heritage Foundation blog, while a full transcript can be found on the National Review Online.
So why was the page taken down? Perhaps it was due to its poor choice of words:
All 50 States are coordinating in this – as we fight back against our own Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists who are subverting the American Democratic Process, whipped to a frenzy by their Fox Propaganda Network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders.
First town hall protesters were called racists; now they’re called terrorists. What next? Fascists? I wouldn’t be surprised!
“Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists?” People who shoot security guards or abortionists are terrorists. People who blow up buildings are terrorists. People who fly planes into buildings are terrorists. People who belong to PETA are terrorists. But people who disrupt town hall meetings are NOT terrorists. Annoying douchebags? Yes. Terrorists? No.
DO YOU WANT to ensure passage of the Public Plan? Since 75% of Americans support it, I guess it's time for us Seventy-Five Percenters to be heard. Why Public Plan? = Because It’s American To Take Care Of Our Own!
The healthcare reform bill is a good thing because 75% of Americans support it?
52% of Californians supported the decision to keep marriage between a man and a woman. I doubt Organizing for America considers Proposition 8 a good thing. Democrats only care about democracy when it supports their political agenda.
And, according to a White House Advisor to the President with whom I spoke ten days ago at a DNC Panel, he said, "ON ONE DAY you 'burn-up' the Senate Switchboards - THE NEXT DAY you've got the Senator's attention". We will achieve that effect, on Friday, Patriot Day 9/11.
So people who disrupt town hall meetings are terrorists, but people who “‘burn-up’ the Senate Switchboards” (perhaps literally) are not? You have to love left-wing irony.
—-* RECLAIM OUR LAND FROM THE HEIRS OF, YES: BIN LADEN *—-* YOU KNOW IT'S TRUE *—-
In case you haven't seen it in the News: Republican Representatives, Senators, GOP Party Leader, GOP Political Machine top personnel (e.g., Gingritch), etc etc etc —- they're ALL every one of them applauding and encouraging their zealot-horde by merrily referring to them as "Proud Right-Wing Terrorists". Google it - I'm not pulling your leg.
So not only are town hall protesters terrorists, but "heirs of Bin Laden?” as well. You have to love left-wing rhetoric.
But don't hate them: Misguided citizens are easy-pickings for demagogues, whom they blindly follow because they’ve been trained all their lives not to question the dogma of their religion, so it’s natural for them NOT TO QUESTION what’s being spoon-fed to them by their FALSE PROPHETS who, themselves, shamelessly seek Worldly Glory.
This paragraph could easily describe those who support the healthcare reform bill, including those in Organizing for America. But hey, it takes one to know one!
I’m really not surprised by all this name-calling. Seems like every Democrat, from congresswoman Nancy Pelosi to activist Janeane Garofalo, has a new name for town hall protesters. I wonder when Democrats will just grow up and stop calling people names?
