2009 is the new 1984

More Hope and Change from Dear Leader…

On Monday, White House director of new media Macon Phillips posted a note on the White House web site complaining of “disinformation about health insurance reform.”  “These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation,” Phillips wrote.  “Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help.  If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.”

Linda Douglass, head of communications for the White House Office of Health Reform, says the White House is “not compiling lists or sources of information” on opponents of health care reform.  But if “fishy” information is indeed collected, as Phillips’ request suggested, the laws involved mean that the information obtained by the White House could not only be secret but permanent. A dissident database, in whatever precise form it ultimately takes, could be around for a long time to come.

So, turn in your neighbors, folks, if they disagree with any political policy and are spreading around their ideas… it’s for the greater good.  After all, who needs to argue and defend their ideas when you can just snitch on the messenger to the Federal government?
