Agitating for America

November 10, 2009

Organizing for America, the permanent version of President Obama’s election campaign, exists to unceasingly agitate for radical change.

The liberal New Republic magazine describes OFA, which is part of the Democratic National Committee, as

“an Internet version of the top-down political machines built by Richard Daley in Chicago or Boss Tweed in New York. The difference (other than technology) was that this new machine would rely on ideological loyalty, not patronage.”

Not surprisingly, President Obama used OFA resources to blast out a mass fundraising email about an hour after his socialist medicine legislation was approved by the House on the weekend, journalist Byron York told guest host Eric Bolling on the “Glenn Beck Program.”

OFA has been pressing members to call and email lawmakers to keep up the pressure for so-called healthcare reform. It also plans to run ads in states where Democratic senators are “wobbly” on the plan, York said.

When the president unexpectedly (and undeservedly) received the Nobel Peace Prize, he blasted out a mass e-mailing through OFA that served notice he would use the surprise award to push his extreme agenda. Obama wrote in the email that he would “accept this award as a call to action.”

OFA pushes Obama’s legislative agenda but it has also dabbled in state politics. In the spring, it got involved in a race in New York’s 20th congressional district and, this fall, it got involved in the Virginia gubernatorial contest.

Although the community blog pages written by members do not represent OFA officially, they’re nevertheless a window into what grassroots members really think.

Recent posts are titled “Rush Limbaugh Is A Racist” and “Obama Will Be One of the Greatest (and Most Loved) American Presidents.” Another blog post gives a big thumbs-up for Michael Moore’s shlockumentary “Capitalism: A Love Story,” and his extreme left-wing  plan for impoverishing America.

    If Bush had a group like this they would have called it a paramilitary, or “Bush’s militia,” or “Bush’s brown shirts.”

    But with Pres. Obama, they just call them “supporters.”

    Love the reference to Tweed. Not too many Americans educated enough to understand what went on in “Tammany hall”. The movie “Gangs of New York” highlighted Tammany’s early criminal involvement in the government. I don’t think too many understood it’s implications though. As for OFA, simply check out their website design/logos. You will see similar graphics, catch phrases, activation words, etc. to “O”s campaign. Weird, almost like they were linked (a lot of other sites that support “the one” are the same). Kathy Shaidle’s assertion that Soros funds most of this stuff is accurate. The only defense these guys have is “nunh unh, no he doesn’t”. It seems as though “O” is still campaigning. For what? Beck’s on the trail, that’s why he’s getting attacked.

    Everyone should give a ‘heads up’ to members on THE HILL in a whispering voice…”we know WHO you are and WHAT you are doing, and we’re watching all of you with Eagle eyes, and we will always remember what you’ve rendered by your ACTIONS.”
    It is quite simple to detect the Comrades, Czar and Commisars from those who truly care about THE PEOPLE, isnt it? It is not what they SAY, for they all can spread the sugar well, but it is about their actions when voting for the Drac Bills that reveals their TRUE AGENDA.

    I signed up to get emails from Organizing for America so I could blast back emails contradicting whatever it is they are pushing.

    They wanted everyone to call their Representative to support Pelosi-care and then they wanted a report as to what the response was.

    I returned their request by expressing my opinion that my representative voted NO (he is a RINO but still voted no) for Pelosi-care because:

    -He isn’t a rabid Communist.
    -He does have a little common sense.

    unlike the Democratic Party.

    By the way, I send daily emails to Comrade Pelosi. However, today, Veteran’s Day, the speaker’s website is unavailable (at least at this point.) Coincidence?
