The USSA Hires a Disinformation Czar

This post from David Kramer on the LewRockwell.com blog is worth noting. A reader had tipped me off to this previously, and for some reason I hadn’t blogged on it yet. He links to this hilarious bit of propaganda from the White House website. Linda Douglass, the communications director for the White House’s Health Reform Office, is the Officer of Disinformation Control for the White House Health Care Plan. Shall we call her the Health Care Disinformation Czar? Watching her body language is particularly humorous. She pushes her glasses down her nose, then at the :44 point of the video she pulls them off, as if to convey a sense of grandma-ness that begs trust. Of course you should report rumors and lies and other “fishy” behavior to grandma! Though this stuff is rolling out of the White House like a bourbon barrel down Mt. Washington, and though it is all entirely predicatable, it is still difficult to believe that I exist in a time and place where this type of feeble and childish propaganda is entirely serious.

    “Of course you should report rumors and lies and other “fishy” behavior to grandma!” I’m guessing this is pure agitprop to foster a vindictive, us-versus-them mentality toward dissenters. The number and vehemence of Obamacare’s opponents is too great for thought police enforcement of the party line. What the heck would they do to “persuade” you? Send a thug to your door?

    Its really shows how weak the administrations arguments are that Linda Douglas can only show two Obama clips…. but neither one supports her argument that statements are being taken out of context. They’re just clips of Obama promising you get to keep your doctor and that a ‘public option’ will keep insurance companies honest. It seems like she’s setting up a response to critics,… but there’s nothing there.
    …like every good liberal, she knows what’s best for you. SHE knows what the real facts are, so pay attention.

    I’ve heard many of this you tube clips
    in the orginal content and they are
    factual as best I can see. Read all the
    Reform proposed and they support this
    take over by Goverment…. Socialism
    at best.. Suggest all federal employees
    go under the V.A. Plan for one year
    then report back on success or failure.
    Then we all (including congress) could
    be required to go into the new Goverment
    plan!

    Okay, so does this mean we get to design a “BIG GRANNIE IS WATCHING YOU!” t-shirt to go with the Obama/Joker mystery posters?

    Actually, I think a t-shirt/comic book tie-in might be in order. After all, that turned-up collar of hers does give her a sort of 1970s-version-of -Lex-Luthor look:
