Claim:ObamaCare *Opponents Duped Into Signing Pro-ObamaCare Petition At Denver OFA Rally

This is beyond the pale. Obama’s thugs are out of control. The OFA Bus tour, I blogged about on Thursday landed in Denver for a rally at a local high school, which the Obots in charge kept under tight control. Photojournalist, and Denver blogger, El Marco was there, and took some pictures. Get a load of the signs they passed out:

astroturf signs

Notice how the hard working Obot astroturfers created their own masterpieces to mimic the hand made signs the tea party crowd use. Their signs had unique and clever slogans such as “health care for all humanity” and “We need health care”. The one on top of the pile actually says, “Organizing for America rally”.

The few legit hand made pro Obama Care signs tended to look like this:

Here’s your real grassroots

El Marco says there were 400-500 Obamacare supporters. Sign carrying dissenters numbered around 40. The anti-ObamaCare protesters were hounded and bullied. These two women were treated like dangerous  right wing extremists, and forced to stand behind a fence, under constant guard:

antiobamacare protesters ejected

Here is an email forwarded to El Marco, which echoed what another person had told him about the duplicitous petition :

“I just returned from a rally for health care reform held at North High School in Denver. As Erin and I were entering the staging area we were approached by people carrying clipboards. We were told we could not enter without signing our name and address on the form. I asked why they needed this information and was told they must know who was entering the area.This was a tax payer supported high school property hosting public speakers and I was being denied entry unless the clipboard form was completed. I was very uncomfortable with this request and remained outside the chain link fence to listen to the speakers. The first speaker was my very own repesentative, Ed Permutter who thanked all who had signed the clipboard form and stated that all these signatures would go on to to Washington showing support of the Obama Health Care Plan. I could not believe what I heard. Never was it stated that this form was a support of the health care plan. I just wonder how many people were dooped into signing this when they do not support the bill or do not know enough about it to make a decision.People carrying signs supporting the bill were permitted entry with their signs, those opposing had to remain outside.

Whether you support this bill or not please ask yourself……do I live in a free country where all are welcome to a public forum without restriction? Can a petition obtained with deception go onto Washington in support of a bill that no one can understand? Do our elected officials respect the wants of the people or are they ramming their agenda down our throats?”

In some third world countries this is a common union scam tactic. Invite workers to a meeting, sign a book at the door and they are trapped into the union without ever being asked if they wanted to join. When enough workers are signed in their employer is shoved aside and the union sets up shop. Very sneaky.

I asked El Marco if he could verify this story, he replied:

I can tell you that I heard people being told that they were signing for security reasons. That’s what I was told when I signed in. The worker that signed me in didn’t look at what I wrote or they might have said “Pravda? That’s from Russia”, if they knew anything at all about geopolitics.
I had no idea from my conversations and constant jostling from green shirts that the information was to be added to any list to be sent to Washington, but it was stated clearly that no one was allowed in who did not fill in the clipboard form. It was only after I got home and was preparing this post that I received an email stating that Ed Perlmutter told the crowd that the list would be sent to Washington, and all the names would be included on a list of supporters of Obamacare. So the clear fact is that anyone who wanted to hear the Congressman at the local high school in Denver on Friday whether they agreed with the policy or not is now included on a list of supporters of the policy. It’s exactly what I have seen going on in third world countries.
I don’t have a transcript, and wasn’t listening to Perlmutter, so I have to rely on the email testimony of the Prager listener whose email I quoted. I do believe her to be a person who does not exaggerate nor lie, so I am pretty sure she is a reliable source.

I wouldn’t be surprised, as the Health Care Insurance Now people are a very shady, and dishonest bunch. Take a look at this unbelievable  post from their website, dated August 10th.

Bus #3 to Senator Specter Town Hall in Kittanning (Let’s Get It Done)

The battle for health care reform is heating up. Right wing opponents of the bill, backed by millions of dollars from insurance companies, are packing Congressional Town Hall meetings around the country to disrupt them and tell atrocious lies about the legislation
We have to fight back! We need you to come out to Senator Arlen Specter’s Town Hall in Kittanning on Thursday Aug 13th in Kittanning.

This is one of three buses running from the Pittsburgh area to the event. You must be at the bus by 10:30 am to hold your spot.

That these ACORN funded astroturfers would be promoting and signing people up to go on a 43+ mile bus trip to a town hall,  while accusing real grassroots folks who actually drive themselves, and make their own signs (imagine that!) of being “backed by millions of dollars from the insurance companies”,  is risible.

Go to El Marco’s blog for the entire story, and lots more pictures.

Meanwhile at another pro-ObamaCare rally in Raleigh, NC:

obot_bus_6Is that an SEIU shirt, I see?

The pro-healthcare crowd was several hundred strong, and for good reason – they arrived in at least three and possibly 4 full-sized tour buses (see pics below). One of the buses came in from Wilmington, which is a couple of hours away, and while I have no idea where the others came from, they sure as hell weren’t from around here.


*Correction: Title of post originally said Obamacare Supporters Duped. Yikes, no. Not what I meant to say.

UPDATE :

A commenter at El Marco’s offered more evidence of the duplicitous nature of  of the OFA crowd:

What should also be mentioned is that the location was changed at the last minute from the Aurauria campus to this high school. It was only the determination of the anti obamacare activists who were on top of this fact that any of our counterdemonstrators showed up at all.

The late breaking news on the OFA website the night before was noticed by one of the freedom groups and he alerted as many people as he could. No doubt, many showed up to protest at the other location and never knew of the change.

Absolutely pathetic…

    Our social, moral, political and intellectual betters are stunned that we’re actually pushing back against what they say is best for us.

    Don’t we know who they are? They’ve gone to Princeton and Yale and Harvard for Marx’s sake!

    It’s all the fault of that snow-billy breeder from Alaska, making people think they don’t need to go to an Ivy League school to understand how America should be.

  4. CBIC Says:

    What is Teabagging?

    We’re not sure exactly. Well, there’s that definition…

    But in the context of the Tax Day Tea Parties, Teabagging seems to allude to an amorphous set of conservative, libertarian, rationalist and vaguely anarchist sentiments held by and regularly touted by Fox News et al.

    If you have a more concrete definition of Teabagging, please, let us know.

    Ask a liberal, don’t ask here. It’s a pejorative term used by liberals to describe Americans who don’t like seeing huge amounts of money being spent with no rationale or accountability.

    Way to address the issues and raise the tone of the debate, libs!!

    So how does this work…

    I like criticism, but it must be my way.

    I don’t mind what the opposition say[s] of me so long as they don’t tell the truth about me. But when they descend to telling the truth about me I consider that this is taking an unfair advantage.

    You’re on the wrong side of an really olde historian.

  16. nicedeb Says:

    I think maybe you have to be smoking rope, (too), in order to understand these guys.

    Where did I write “help” in italics? WTF?

    Clear your head(s), dude(s), and then come back and we’ll try to have a conversation.

  17. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere Says:

    I guess I missed the part where tweedle dum and tweedle dee said anything resembling the “truth”.

    Boys, we need a heads up when you’re saying something you consider to be true. You might take a cue from Dear Leader and preface it with “Let Me Be Clear…” so we know which polished turd you’re offering up for our consideration.

    I took a little walk a couple of days ago and ran into two fellers comin’ out of the woods…

    They said they were walking along, when they come upon a huge hole in the ground.
    They approached it and were amazed by its’ size and apparent depth?

    Then the first guy said…

    ” Wow, that’s some hole, I can’t even see the bottom, I wonder how deep it is?”

    The second guy responded,

    ” I don’t know, let’s throw something down and listen and see how long it takes to hit bottom.”

    The first guy replied…

    “There’s this old transmission here, give me a hand and we’ll throw it in and see”.

    So they pick’s it up and carried it over, and counted one, and two and three, and throw it in the hole.

    They are just standing there listening and looking over the edge and they hear a rustling in the brush behind them.

    As they turn around they saw a goat come crashing through the brush, run up to the hole, and with no hesitation, jump in head first.

    While they are standing there looking at each other, I came along and says…

    “Say there, fellers”, says me… “You guys didn’t happen to see my goat around here anywhere, did yah?”

    The first guy says…

    “Funny you should ask, but we were just standing here a minute ago and a goat came running out of the bushes doin’ about a hunert miles an hour and jumped headfirst into this hole here!”

    And I says…

    “Why that’s impossible, I had him chained to a transmission!

    Oh well…
    Live and learn ladies and gents…
    Have a gud day…!

    Historians may record these peculiar circumstances…?

  20. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere Says:

    Don’t worry, Geezer. When the orderlies from the dementia ward come around asking for you, wewon’t tell them which way you went.

  21. nicedeb Says:

    Huh.

    Was the goat a teabagger? That would make it really funny.

  22. Geezer Says:

    Ah Deb…you sweet intelligent lady…

    Is it the difference between a metaphor or a simile…?

  23. nicedeb Says:

    Ahhhh…..

    The goat was *like* a teabagger.

    Deep.

  24. Geezer Says:

    You my dear lady, you are a winner…!

    With respect to generally accepted practice…

    “A metaphor is an equation where a simile is an approximation.” Inter changeable properties…
