Attack Watch #EpicFailSeptember 14th, 2011
It’s not only time for disruptive commercials and campaigns from those who bleed Red, but also the incumbent who have started his campaign to win another 4 years in the Oval Office. One way he is encouraging voters to support him and his philosophies is through a new website that employs virtual thought police: Attack Watch.
The website offers a place to donate, sign up for the newsletter, AND send in reports on suspicious behavior or attacks on thoughts and policies if they aren’t perceived to be in line with Obama’s ideas. Turns out volunteers for the Obama 2012 campaign needed some help defending the concerns that people across the country have with his performance the past 4 years.
From what I’m gathering, this new tool will help corral news outlets, individuals, and blogs that are talking about Obama in a way that is not advantageous to his campaign, as well as suspicious behavior and faces of “attackers” (why else would it give you the option to upload a photo?) There’s even an option to choose the “attack type”. HA!
Their plan is to debunk the attacks through this network so Obama activists have some material to fight back. However, I wonder where else this information goes?
I foresee the conservatives of the web going up in arms with this new campaign strategy and most will be labeled something along the lines of “right-wing terrorists” before it’s all said and done by Maddow or some other leftist blogger.
The best part about the launch of this campaign is the lack of ability to take it seriously. Twitter has been exploding with #AttackWatch and now the hash tag is trending in 2nd or 3rd place. Some tweets that have been sent to the Attack Watch site:
@thorninaz – “Hey #attackwatch , I saw 6 ATM’s in an alley, killing a Job. It looked like a hate crime!”
@daggy1 -”uh oh. There’s an #attackwatch van pulling up in my driveway. I’m in trouble. …”
Alright enjoy this timeline everyone…I think I need to report Silver Circle…
