UPDATE 9/1: The page indicated below has been taken off the mybarackobama.com website. However, the folks at Heritage managed to capture a screen shot of it, which you can see here. It is good that it was taken down, however, it is still shameful that it got posted in the first place. Like a ship’s captain is in some sense responsible for what all members of his crew do, so is Barack Obama responsible for this, even if he wasn’t the one personally posting it.
This time, it’s by phone, and on 9/11, of all days. Straight off mybarackobama.com, here’s the explicit and detailed instructions:
PHONE CALLS ON 9/11 – Illinois! (Health Care Organizing Event)
STAY HOME FOR THIS EVENT! DO NOT GO ANYWHERE!
—-* The Event consists of ALL OF US Making Two Phone Calls on one particular, single day.
—-* We call each of our State Senators (phone numbers are below) on that day.
What day? Our US Senators return to DC the Tues after Labor Day. That next FRIDAY, Sep 11, is Patriot Day, designated in memory of the nearly three thousand who died in the 9/11 attacks.
All 50 States are coordinating in this – as we fight back against our own Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists who are subverting the American Democratic Process, whipped to a frenzy by their Fox Propaganda Network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders.
DO YOU WANT to ensure passage of the Public Plan? Since 75% of Americans support it, I guess it’s time for us Seventy-Five Percenters to be heard. Why Public Plan? = Because It’s American To Take Care Of Our Own!
And, according to a White House Advisor to the President with whom I spoke ten days ago at a DNC Panel, he said, “ON ONE DAY you ‘burn-up’ the Senate Switchboards – THE NEXT DAY you’ve got the Senator’s attention”. We will achieve that effect, on Friday, Patriot Day 9/11.
Auto-generated emails will remind you about our Armchair Public Plan Slam-Dunk Two-Phone-Call Call-A-Thon. Plus I will email you that day, too. And, if you’re proud you joined-in, then email me (the Host) back, when you’ve made your calls. I will be honored to report our massive numbers to OFA for them to brag on the web.
2 PHONE CALLS ON 9/11 – BE A TRUE PATRIOT –
DEFEAT ANTI-DEMOCRATIC FORCES OF HATE WHO CONSPIRE TO REMAIN HEALTHY + WEALTHY WHILE THE PUBLIC LANGUISHES UNDER THE BURDEN OF OUR PRESENT HEALTH CARE SYSTEM –
—-* TELL THEM: “I’m calling from the city of [xxx] – and I AM mad as Hell – and I AM NOT going to take it anymore, If You Don’t Mind!”…
