A word to the wise

In case you haven’t been following the story, the Obama White House has requested that if you see anything (comments, e-mails, blogs, etc.) that seems “fishy” (i.e. anything that disagrees with or questions the official propaganda claims about all the wonderful things the current health care reform legislation is supposed to do) you should notify the White House:

In a recent White House blog written by Macon Phillips, the White House Director of New Media, Phillips claims that “[t]here is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there” both on the web and floating around in chain emails. Phillips states that “[s]ince 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 flag@whitehouse.gov.”

“In a nutshell, the White House is asking Americans to report on their neighbors, family, and friends who disagree with the President’s policy choices on health care,” said Sekulow. “The White House is also implying that you should think twice before sending an email disagreeing with the President, since it might end up being forwarded to them. The White House email address says it all – let’s ‘flag’ those who disagree with us. This new White House reporting program strikes at the heart of the First Amendment and has no place in this important debate about health care.”

The People’s Cube has a lovely collection of approved-thought posters like this one. Make sure you scroll through the entire thread. It’s priceless.

Don't spread fishy rumors
