The ACLU, whose mantra is “Because Freedom Can’t Protect Itself” would beg to differ and I have yet to hear Reid, Pelosi, Obama accuse the ACLU of being “un-American.” In reality, protesters who oppose Obamacare have taken a page out of the Democrat’s book.
“The Senate’s most powerful Democrat on Thursday scolded health care protesters dogging his party’s lawmakers at local meetings, arguing that some critics on the political right have run out of ideas — and ditched their civic manners. Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada accused the protesters of trying to “sabotage” the democratic process…
…”These are nothing more than destructive efforts to interrupt a debate that we should have, and are having,” Reid said. “They are doing this because they don’t have any better ideas. They have no interest in letting the negotiators, even though few in number, negotiate. It’s really simple: they’re taking their cues from talk show hosts, Internet rumor-mongerers … and insurance rackets.”
Obama trained ACORN in the do’s and don’ts of community organizing and schooled them well in how to achieve one’s goals by any means necessary, and by any means necessary they did. The Democrats never once complained. However, now that the rest of the nation has finally caught on to the Chicago Way, it is suddenly the Republican Party’s fault and we are un-American. Nonsense, this is nothing more than liberal horse fodder.
“Republicans answered back.
‘All the polls show there is serious concern, if not outright opposition, to the president’s health care plan,’ said Antonia Ferrier, spokeswoman for House Republican Leader John Boehner of Ohio. ‘Democrats are ginning up this cynical shell game.’
Boehner had said last week the Democrats would be in for a hot summer on health care. Republicans say the political pressure is also on them, from unions and liberal activists targeting conservative lawmakers.”
Because the voice of the people have been long ignored, censored and ridiculed by Obama, Reid, Pelosi, the administration and the rest of the liberal regime and “Because Freedom Can’t Protect Itself,” a nation is rising up and demanding that its voice be heard, there is nothing more American than that.
On election night, Barack Obama said to those who did not vote for him, “I hear you.” Obama heard, but did not listen, instead he made excuses, lied and went his way, i.e., the Chicago Way.
“John Wagner, a 71-year-old retired salesman, said he wasn’t affiliated with any political groups. He said he and his wife, 68-year-old Anne Wagner, came try to talk to Murphy. Both of the registered independents voted for Murphy’s Republican opponent.
‘We think it’s the start of our government taking over every facet of our economy, and of our health, to make sure that the government runs everything,’ John Wagner said.”
Had our founding fathers continued to sit quietly by as King George stuck it to us, there would be no United States of America.
As recommended by the ACLU:
“Becoming an Effective and Efficient Activist
You owe it to yourself to become as effective as you can. By learning new skills or honing existing skills, you are more likely to have an impact and achieve the results you desire. For example, if you learn how to get a letter to the editor published before sitting down and writing one, you are more likely to get it published.
How to call your Members of Congress
How to meet with elected officials [Had a meeting? Let us know.]
Writing an Effective Letter To the Editor [Got published? Let us know.]
Presenting Information to Elected Officials
Writing an Op-Ed Piece [Got published? Let us know.]
Making Talk Radio Work for You

To gather more information on the etiquette of community organizing and protests, feel free to go to the creators of mayhem, Obama’s community organizers who are only too willing to provide such information.
Talk about people in glass houses, HCAN aka HealthcareforAmericaNow, a Democratic special interest organization, has its own playbook and is extremely vocal in explaining the “get in your face” method of protesting and how to commandeer msm:
“Choose a venue that is difficult for the opposition to access without being noticed.
Select a strong moderator to move the agenda in a disciplined way. Make sure you select someone who is comfortable interrupting rowdy protesters, who can command the attention of the room…
Collect signs and leaflets that are not provided by you or your organization. Another way to limit protesters’ ability to hijack your event is to confiscate signs or leaflets that they may bring into the venue from outside. The best way to do this is to make a blanket rule that no one can bring signs or leaflets and to advertise this fact as you do turn out in the weeks preceding the event. You can distribute your own signs in the event and offer them one as they enter if you choose to allow them to enter.
Have a real plan for the media. Remember, this is a communications strategy that the right wing is using and our goal is to stop them from hijacking and changing the message and tone of these events. Assign 3-5 people to speak with the reporters who attend and make sure the reporters understand the scope and message of the event. If you let the media just report on what they see, they will invariably focus on the mayhem.
Assign people to greet the media and to stay close to reporters both as they enter and leave the event. It’s important that you take away right-wingers opportunities to talk with reporters by making sure that your staff or leaders are in constant contact with the media who attend.”
