    ABC Healthcare Infomercial Protest-Rally

    The TEA Party of West Michigan is holding a protest outside the WZZM-TV studio in Grand Rapids.  The focus of this protest is the President Obama infomercial in support of his Nationalized Healthcare plan.  The information I present below the fold is from both the Independence Caucus and the Republican National Committee.  We so need to do this!

    On Wednesday June 24th 2009 ABC will be airing an "infomercial" for Obama to sell us his Nationalized Health Care Plan.  They have billed this as a "Conversation on Healthcare" and yet they are not allowing the other side of the "conversation" to be heard.  Just like the Russian Government run news organization TASS, ABC is becoming a state run news organization for our new socialist government and they are not allowing any alternate points of view to be aired in juxtaposition to their broadcast.  The Democrats have shown they will stop at nothing to blur the lines between government and private sector, so we must keep the pressure on them.  And at the same time, we must get the message of a common sense GOP-sponsored health care reform alternative out to more Americans.

    There are two problems with this "infomercial."  The first problem I have already mentioned wherein our first Amendment rights are being encroached upon by the creation of a quasi-state-run media complete with a media Czar.  The second, and more immediate concern, is the shameless promotion of a National Health Care Program in an infomercial format without any objective reporting on the issue, or the ability to show any kind of alternate program or point of view.  Once again, the government is setting things up to try to ram things down our throats that we do not want and cannot afford.  We MUST stand up and be heard!

    Though the television network has denied requests to air ads counter to President Obama's government-run health care "reform" plans, they can't keep us off the air everywhere.  We cannot stand idly by and see our media hijacked and become a state-run media outlet orchestrated by a media Czar.  It's time for us to act.  Last time we mobilized, they tried to ignore and marginalize us.  We invite every able bodied freedom loving American to rally outside of their local ABC affiliate TV station with signs, airhorns, and other noisemaking devices so that we get their attention this time.

    The slogan "Silent Majority No More" can no longer remain just a slogan; it's time to show that we are NOT silent anymore.  Make it sound like midnight on New Years Eve in front of every ABC affiliate TV station across the country.  Make them send their reporters out to cover it live.  Continue the rally through their news hour so our fellow Americans can realize how many of us share the same view.  We know that this keeps you up a little later than usual; however, a little sleep lost now is better than liberties lost later.  Unusual times call for unusual measures.

    (Locally, we've gone to the trouble of alerting the tip lines of WXMI-TV and WOOD-TV.  So even if Channel 13 doesn't come out to the parking lot to chat, maybe Channel 17 or Channel 8 will show up, and we can chat with them.)

    The Republican National Committee has produced a television ad to counter the infomercial, which I present below (script and ad facts are available by following the link):
