Horse Hockey In Coat Tails

Remember when the news media was up in arms about the government wiretapping to catch terrorists? How about the use of water boarding on terrorists to save American lives? They complained. They made a big deal about something that had vast potential to save your miserable pathetic life. Yet these were evils of the most terrible sort. Yet now we have a government sponsored spy on your neighbor website, and death panels.
Who died from water boarding? Who died from a wiretap? Yet the news media is silent about this. They try to make us out to be Nazis and yet they try to sneak in a bill a way to kill people. What hypocrisy! I guess they forget about the six million plus that were killed in concentration camps throughout Europe when they try to compare us to Nazis, yet they try to emulate their healthcare.
Big brother is watching. It is not someone on a government payroll necessarily though. But when you least expect it, expect it. Currently you can report people who are “misinforming” people about this whole socialist healthcare plot. Now my question is why? The official statement is something about keeping people informed about the “truth”. Shortly after this started, people started getting emails from a man at the White House named David Axelrod. The people have not had any correspondence with the White House for any reason, yet they have their email. Now under law they are required to keep these correspondences, which later become public record. Now every wacko that wants to can send you a picture of himself wearing what you assume is a Speedo but can’t tell from the blubber that is pouring over top of it. Here is a clip from Fox news of Megyn Kelly and Deputy White House Press Secretary Bill Burton:
KELLY: "Bill Hemmer complains about health care and he has a message and I forward you Bill Hemmer's e-mail to me, saying, 'You know, Bill is saying there are death panels.' So I forward Bill's e-mail to you, and you get my e-mail," Megyn Kelly's e-mail, "you get Bill Hemmer's e-mail. You're deleting Hemmer's e-mail address, right? Do you purge and delete the name of the complainant?"BURTON: I understand your question, but do not confuse your viewers into thinking that we are keeping a list of the opponents of reform. KELLY: You've already said that three times, Bill. BURTON: We're not. We're just trying to go out and answer the --KELLY: Please just answer my question.BURTON: I know, but it -- but -- KELLY: Are you purging and deleting those e-mails or aren't you? BURTON: Apparently it is not clear to you.KELLY: It's not, because you're not answering.BURTON: If it's not clear to you, it's because you keep (sputtering). Megyn, you're flabbergasting, I gotta say. We're not keeping an enemies list. We're answering people's questions, and the fact that you guys keep talking about this so much is confusing people, I think, because we're not keeping any list.
KELLY: You're not keeping an enemies list, you said.BURTON: About what's going on.KELLY: I hear you. You've made that point three times. Now if you will just please answer my question. Are you purging --BURTON: I think it was four times.KELLY: -- or deleting -- BURTON: I think it was four times.KELLY: -- the actual... Are you purging or deleting the e-mails of the citizens who have raised complaints?BURTON: Right. I appreciate that question. We're not altering their e-mails in any way. We're just answering the person who e-mails us with the facts.KELLY: I'm saying, do you delete --BURTON: Megyn, I really want you to stop confusing your viewers --KELLY: This is an important question, sir.

BURTON: -- because you're not doing a service to the American people you're not doing a service to the American people by confusing them about whether or not there's an enemies list.KELLY: Bill, you're being unfair, because you and I both know -- BURTON: I'm not being unfair.
KELLY: "Listen, Bill, you're being unfair you and I both know there's a federal law and it's called the Presidential Records Act and it prohibits you from deleting the e-mails in the records that are received by the White House. So in the example I just gave you you're not deleting Bill Hemmer's e-mail because you will have it and you will maintain it for years and then at some point it will become publicly available and this is why some people say you requesting the people forward their neighbors' or other people's complaints, which will include e-mails in many instances, will have a chilling effect on free speech."BURTON: I think the reason why people are confused is because journalists, not unlike you, are saying things like our knowing that the Presidential Records Act suggests that, uh, we keep records here. But none of that -- none of that information is made public for a very long time and we are not keeping a list because that is ludicrous. We are just answering questions that people have about, uh, legitimate concerns that they have and answering is some of the real myths that are out there that get, uh, propagated by leaders of anti-reform movement and are sometimes, uh, often talked about on cable news networks.
KELLY: "Look, you have the Speaker of the House referring to these people at swastika-wearing. You have another Democrat calling them Nazis. You have the president calling complaints about health care smears saying he's going to fight them. Then the White House comes out and says send us the e-mails those of us behind the e-mails may feel a little reluctant to engage in such speech in the future, and that's the complaint not just cable news has about it, Bill Burton, but the ACLU as come out and said: We have a serious problem with what you're doing."BURTON: Well, for starters, I don't think Speaker Pelosi was just claiming that people were wearing swastikas. People are showing up at events with swastikas, dressed up as Hitler, with signs invoking Nazi Germany. So that's not something that's being made up.
Really? Let me see the pictures of the “brown shirts”, that might give you some of your credibility. This entire racist ploy is just an attempt to make people feel guilty about not falling for their trap. I don’t think it’s working comrade Pelosi.
Of course the news media doesn’t saying anything about this because it looks bad for the whole liberal movement, but when it’s a republican, they are sooo so EVIL! they must be stopped, let’s make them look bad and blow everything out of proportion. Why doesn’t the media complain that Obama reinstated a plan to end veterans lives while under care at the VA? Remember that next time you decide to vote and do a little research yourself, because the media is only telling you what they want you to know.
