I find it disturbing that the Obama administration has selected June 6, 2009 as the “kick-off” date for a hard push to implement his ill-thought out healthcare plan. At a time Americans should be looking at commemorating the Normandy Invasions that eventually freed Europe from the grip of Nazism they are being encouraged by the Obama administration to “gather to launch our grassroots campaign for health care and watch a special message from Obama.”
On June 6, 1944, 2500 American Servicemen sacrificed their lives in the bid to free Europe from that oppression. Nearly 2,000 Servicemen from other Allied Nations who joined in that effort also sacrificed their lives. It is not a day to be taken lightly by those of us who honor our Veterans and their sacrifices. Nor is it a day to be prostituted out for political gain.
I think it no coincidence that Obama, or his handlers, chose this specific day to kick off their plan. The very wording contained in the email from David Plouffe indicates the careful plotting to liken this effort to the Normandy Invasions.
“Remember this date: Saturday, June 6th, 2009. We will look back on that day as the moment when the fight for real health care reform began in your neighborhood.”
“These gatherings on June 6th are just the beginning of a battle between those who fought and believe in change and those who would protect a broken status quo. The stakes for our country could not be greater.”
“…no matter what this effort requires of us, if we work together we'll be ready to face it and persevere.”
The email in its entirety is produced below.
Obama has time and again shown he is willing to prostitute any and every thing in his push towards Socialism and this high jacking of the commemoration of the Normandy Invasions is just one more example of the careful crafting he and his people use to lull unsuspecting Americans into their lair of deceit.
I am left wondering if this Fairy Tale Health Care is so advantageous to America, why do they continue the hard sell? Why the need for such subliminal messaging as likening it to the D-Day Invasion of Europe 65 years ago?
How hypocritical as Obama Urges Americans to Honor Veterans on Memorial Day he is willing to highjack the memory of the greatest Military Invasion in our history that freed several nations from oppression for his political gain!
The email as received from David Plouffe, of Organizing for America, a project of the Democratic National Committee.
Remember this date: Saturday, June 6th, 2009. We will look back on that day as the moment when the fight for real health care reform began in your neighborhood -- perhaps even in your own living room.
On June 6th, in thousands of homes across the country, we'll gather to launch our grassroots campaign for health care. We'll watch a special message from the President. We'll build the teams and draw up the plans for winning health care reform the same way we won the election: Building support one block, one neighbor, one conversation at a time. And we'll put those plans into action.
These kickoffs are so crucial that President Obama will join confirmed hosts and attendees on a live conference call.
There's no prior experience required. We'll send you the details for dialing into the President's call and provide you everything you need to make your meeting a success.
After the election, people gathered at over 9,000 meetings across every state to set priorities for health care reform. Our voices were heard. Now the race is on to make sure Congress produces a plan that reflects the President's call for reduced costs, guaranteed choice, and quality care for all.
To make that happen, we need to build a groundswell of support in every district and every state, and we have no time to lose. All summer we'll be reaching out to our neighbors, knocking on doors, serving in our communities, and building a grassroots network strong enough to win.
These gatherings on June 6th are just the beginning of a battle between those who fought and believe in change and those who would protect a broken status quo. The stakes for our country could not be greater.
Some call this strategy pie-in-the-sky. They say we'll never have enough volunteers to make a real impact; that you need insiders and Washington lobbyists to make a difference. But you and I know firsthand how wrong they are. Starting June 6th, it's once again time to show this country how bottom-up change is done.
Please sign up today to host or attend a kickoff near you.
These kickoffs will be both effective and fun. You'll meet likeminded supporters in your neighborhood, share stories, enjoy good company and a shared mission, and know that no matter what this effort requires of us, if we work together we'll be ready to face it and persevere.
I look forward to joining you and the President to chart our course.
