Healthcare Watch Via Flag at WhiteHouse.gov Like Wilson’s APL

During the presidency of Woodrow Wilson, something unprecendented occurred in this country that freedom-loving patriots like myself hoped would never return.  Progressivism at that time cracked down on individual civil liberties under the Espionage Act of 1917 and the Sedition Act of 1918.  These two pieces of legislation made it a crime – an act of sedition – to criticize the government in any way.  And how did the government find out that citizens were criticizing the government, particularly in the privacy of their homes or through mail?  From the neighbors of those citizens, of course.  Wilson’s Justice Department created a fascisti known as the American Protective League (APL).

Members of the APL were given badges that read “Secret Service” and they were tasked with spying on their neighbors.  These busy bodies could be a citizen’s co-workers, neighbors or friends and these people would read through mail and listen in on conversations on the telephone.  The APL’s Vigilante Patrol went after any kind of street rioting or street oratory – something similar to tea parties.   At the height of its power, the APL had 250,000 members and hundreds of people had been arrested.  Don’t think it could happen today?  Think again.

The Obama administration does not like that the American people are not supporting ObamaCare.  They cannot seem to understand why we would not want socialistic healthcare in America.  They have tried various tactics, most recently changing rhetoric from healthcare reform to health insurance reform.  Congress and the President have lied repeatedly and it only takes a little common sense to be able to decipher when they are being untruthful.  These tactics are not providing the results needed to cram ObamaCare down our throats so the White House has issued a new plan.  They are asking fellow citizens to report on any falsehoods they hear in regards to healthcare reform whether it is coming from a friend, radio or TV personality or some conservative group and send the information to them at flag@whitehouse.gov.  Yes, they are asking neighbors to report on neighbors.

I have several questions.  First of all, how do these spies know a falsehood?  There have been no details given from the Democrats about their plans.  The Democrats have not even read the bill, nor has the President.  Our representatives and leadership do not know what is in the bill, so how would they even know a falsehood?  What if what we are claiming is true and the looney lefties are lying?  Should we report the President to his own website?  Because the truth is, they are all lying on this healthcare reform.  History and universal healthcare around the world proves these Progressives to be completely wrong on healthcare.  I would be willing to bet that most of the incoming email will be from regular citizens who do not support this socialistic crap and are telling the government off by sending them back their own rhetoric.

I plan to email them their lying rhetoric.  For example, that we will be able to keep our private insurance and our doctor.

  1. Just emailed “Mr Flag” that there “appeared to be an unconstitutional move afoot to get Citizens to spy on each other about the Glorious Leaders’ health plans. I haven’t figured out yet WHO is behind this McCarthyistic move, but when I do, I’ll let him know”…

    Fascism in America! Who would EVER have predicted this???

  2. GREAT article! You are the first conservative/libertarian blog that I have seen talk about Woodrow Wilson and the APL as it relates to the past 2 days events. I am currently reading Jonah Goldberg’s book “Liberal Fascism”, so I am naturally freaked out by all of this.

    I was in the process of doing some research for my own article on my blog and I came across yours. You have an awesome site here! Nicely done. Do you mind if we link to your site?

    Check out ours too: http://www.libertylog.org

  3. Thanks Randall – it is terrifying to see our country going through these same motions again. History really does repeat itself.

    Like your website as well and have added you to my blogroll.

  4. I need more information. How much do I get paid for snitching? Do get paid twice if I turn in the same political dissenter for two different infractions. Do I get paid the same amount for turning in my mother or is it the same price as my neighbor or a casual acquaintance. How much do I get paid for turning in bloggers.

    You know, I think Obama is just a little behind schedule with this. Hell, by the time Hitler was in office a mere six months (July 1933) he already had about 27,000 political dissenters in concentration camps.

    I wonder if the provisions of HR 645 which proposed to direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish national emergency centers on military installations has anything to do with this. There are supposed to be six of them “to provide temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster” and “to meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security”. Hmmm…sounds like they could easily be used as internment camps if Napolitano says so. Consider what they said back in April. “Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines “rightwing extremism in the United States” as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority…It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

    Sound ridiculous? These things have happened before and not just in Nationalist Socialist Germany. It’s happened before right here in the good ol’ USA.

    I do believe Pretendent Obama and his goose-steppers are beginning to behave as if they are a bit paranoid. Hitler was paranoid, too.

  5. Cool site, love the info.
