The Heritage Foundation’s Foundry blog has posted a screen shot from Obama’s OFA website (www.barackobama.com). I’ve reposted the screenshot at the bottom of this post.*
Apparently Obama and the campaign arm of the White House (i.e., OFA) are trying to designate 9/11 as “Patriot Day .. in memory of the nearly three thousand who died in the 9/11 attacks.” So far that doesn’t sound too bad, right? How could commemorating 9/11 be a bad thing?
One small problem is that they are actually not commemorating 9/11. They’re planning a day of coordinated Castroturf action in which all their followers make at least two calls into their U.S. Senator’s office and demand that they vote for government run health care.
So 9/11 is no longer about remembering the attacks on American soil. It is no longer about the thousands of lives taken by islamist terrorists. It’s no longer a national day of mourning. For Obama and the staff at BarackObama.com, 9/11 is now about the much higher calling of forcing socialized health care and a massive new government bureaucracy into the lives of Americans. And if Obama and OFA need to invoke the memory of the 3,000 people who died on 9/11 as a means of winning a political battle, they’re apparently all for it. (After all one should never waste a good crisis, right?)
As offensive as misappropriating 9/11 for political gains may be, it isn’t enough for OFA. Nope, 9/11 can now also be used as a means to attack and malign the majority of average, every day Americans. As part of the text of their post, they actually state that those who disagree with the Obamacare plan are “our own Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists” who are “subverting the American Democratic Process.” So they see those attending the Tea Party gatherings as morally equivalent to the al Qaeda attackers who flew the planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Furthermore, to the people at OFA, a gathering of ostensibly free people practicing their right “peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances” is “subverting the Democratic Process.”
In their own words, for those who think I’m making this up.
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 Propoganda Network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders.
As I noted in the post on Obama advisor, Van Jones, calling Republicans a**holes. and other posts where Obama tells his detractors to “get out of the way” so he can socialize health care without interruptions, we are getting an increasingly clear picture of the Democrat concept of civility and rational discourse.
If you agree with them and bow to their every whim and desire, you’re reasonable and bi-partisan. If you dare to question their plans, you’re an a**hole, a Nazi, un-American, etc. and you need to “get out of the way.”
* Of course, once the post was found out by the Heritage Foundation and others, the OFA organization quickly pulled it.
Update: Robert Moon @ the examiner.com provides more insight into this misappropriation of 9/11 and the attack on the majority of American citizens. He also provides an extensive list of this thin-skinned administration’s other attempts to malign and attack anyone who dares disagree with “the One.”
