The DNC Is Scared

Latest DNC mailing:
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.

The only sham being perpetrated here is a healthcare bill that will destroy America's economy and put the government in charge of your healthcare decisions. I can assure you that the people I know personally who are involved in this, are more than just average Americans. I consider them above-average and not a single one of them is employed by any special interest group. The only special interests being represented are the ones that directly affect their families.

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?

and while you're at it, if any of your freinds or family disgarees with our Fearless Leader, send their personal information to snitches 'r us.

5 facts - insulting opinions - about the anti-reform mobs - average Americans standing up to politicians

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, did you know he served in Viet Nam? 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.

See the first note.
The leftists do it all the time. George Soros pays millions to operatives to keep the leftist base informed through moveon.ogre and has an office on K Street.

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.

The only lies being told are coming from the administration and the lackeys and useful idiots who populate it. We've read the bill, they haven't (by their own admission) and we know whats in it, they don't, (also by their own admission).

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.

Which is different from Code Pink showing up at Congressional hearings and smearing “blood” on legislators, or anti-military pro-Hamas pro-marxist libtards marching with signs depicting President Bush being be-headed or hanging in effigy and calling Secretary of State Condeleeza Rice a war criminal.

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.

The goal is to let the politicians know we are pissed and we will hold them accountable. To quote a politician “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen". They may actually decide to get out of the kitchen and let good people have a chance.

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."
I’ll second that.
