Obama Uses Soviet-Style Tactics To Discredit Health Care Dissent Posted: 04 Aug 2009 06:20 PM PDT In the Soviet Union, psychiatry was used for punitive purposes. If you disagreed with the government you had to be crazy Therefore Psychiatric hospitals were often used by the authorities as prisons in order to isolate political prisoners from the rest of society, discredit their ideas, and break them physically and mentally. The Obama administration uses a similar tactic against those who dissent against his health care plan. Anybody who disagrees with the President is either a racist or crazy, so any protest against Obamacare must be set up by the Republicans or special interests. The Hubris of the Democratic party is that it is inconceivable to them that anyone could disagree with them. The Tea Party protests were ignored, underestimated, or chalked up as a Fox News production. They are ignoring the anger of the electorate and letting it grow. Now that much of the anger has attached itself to Obamacare, the Democrats are using their Soviet-style tactics on the protesters. Witness this exchange between ABC Reporter Jake Tapper and Press Secretary Gibbs: TAPPER: A couple questions. One, is it your contention — is it the White House contention that the anger that some members of Congress are experiencing at town hall meetings, especially over health care reform, is manufactured? GIBBS: I think some of it is, yes. In fact, I think you’ve had groups today, Conservatives for Patients Rights, that have bragged about organizing and manufacturing that anger. TAPPER: How is their organizing and getting people to come to town hall meetings and express their feelings any different from a liberal group doing the same thing? GIBBS: Well, I think what you’ve seen is they have — they have bragged about — about manufacturing, to some degree, that anger. I think you’ve got somebody who’s very involved, a leader of that group that’s very involved in — in the status quo, a CEO that used to run a health care company that was fined by the federal government $1.7 billion for fraud. I think that’s a lot of what you need to know about the motives of that group. That’s right Mr. Gibbs because anyone with legitimate anger about the president’s programs has to be crazy right? Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) called out what he called the “loud, shrill voices” that have been interrupting town hall meetings across the country held by Democratic members of Congress and members of the administration on health care reform. “In spite of the loud, shrill voices trying to interrupt town hall meetings and just throwing a monkey wrench into everything, we’re going to continue to be positive and work hard.’ The Liberal press is participating in the attacks. For Example, on the Chris Matthews show Jeanne Cummings of Politico played the party line: Well they’re conservatives who are being organized by several different Republican organizations. One of them is an organization committed to defeat health care. They’re running, on their site, every list of townhall meetings they can find and encouraging people to show up. The Republican House committee is also urging and organizing people to go out to these townhall meetings and basically create a fuss that can then be, go viral on the Web and make it appear as if though there is a great deal of opposition to the President’s plan. The problem is at some of these townhall meetings they’ve been outnumbered by citizens who would actually like to discuss the issue in a more civilized way and they shouted those folks down. Later in the show, Senator Barbara Boxer of California added: So this, this is just all organized. Just go up on the Web site Chris. You, you in the media have to take a look at what’s going on here. This is all planned. It’s to hurt our president and it’s to change the Congress. It’s, and you know what? We went to the White House today, we heard President Obama. It was wonderful to hear him. He’s so calm and cool about this. He says we gotta be tougher, we gotta be stronger, we have the truth on our side on these issues. We’ll just get out there and present those facts to the American people and let them choose between people who are screaming and those of us who are trying to explain how we can really help our families afford medical care in this great nation of ours. The Democratic Party is using the best of the Soviet Union Tactics against the American People, in the coming weeks look for the attacks to accelerate. After all we are an angry lot because we care about our country and our families, and if you ask the Democratic party, putting family and country first is a very crazy thing.
