The Obama campaign starts a website urging people to report their neighbors
The Obama campaign has launched a new website called Attack Watch which urges people to report anyone who gossips about, smears, or attacks the president. Does this sound familiar? If it doesn’t it should because this is not the first time that Barack Obama has urged citizens to turn in other citizens for opposing the positions of Dear Leader.
During the healthcare reform debate Barack Obama started a website which urged American citizens to report people who opposed this legislation. This website urged people who engaged other people in a casual conversation about Obamacare to report that person if they held a position which the regime felt was an “untruth.” By “untruth” Barack Obama means anyone who was opposed to the legislation.
But this attempt at silencing free speech and intimidating his opponents began before Barack Obama even became president; how can we forget the “truth squads” that then candidate Obama sent out to try to intimidate television stations which ran what he felt were “misleading” ads?
There is a growing pattern here; if you oppose the president and his positions he wants to know about it, and he urges other citizens to tell him about it. He claims that this is an effort to right the wrongs done against him by misinformation but one has to think that he is actually compiling an enemies list.
What is he going to do with this list? Hopefully he won’t be president long enough for us to find out the answer to that question.
