MSN-HEALTH SITE CENSORS OBAMA’S CRITICS
by John Charlton
(Sept. 6, 2009) — Increasingly evident is the censorship employed on the Internet against Obama’s critics. Most recently, The Post & Email can report that MSN.com has a definitive policy of erasing comments which criticize Barack Obama.
Yesterday, a heated discussion broke out at MSN Health, on an article entitled “How to Fight the Flue this Fall“, by Rebecca Ruiz of Forbes news service. The commentors began discussing the viability, effectiveness and safety of the H1N1 Flu Virus vaccine; when the debate got heated commentors began citing reports which linked the outbreak of the Flu to political allies of the currently recognized U. S. President.
Among these links were those to a recent editorial at The Post & Email, regarding the necessity of forming a United Front for American Liberty, as a preventative contingency plan against Obama’s usurpation of dictatorial powers (“We must take a united stand Now against the American Hitler“, Sept. 3, 2009). It seems this link was posted by a commenter named Worldwide — 2009, some time after 1:00 PM.
What other links were erased is not currently known to The Post & Email,as only those which link to this site are recorded in our cache (35 hits), so there were a lot more readers at MSN Health than those posting comments). But it is evident from reading the comments at MSN Health, that Obama supporters objected to the comparison of Obama to Hitler, and specifically mention item 12 in the Editorial.
However, it is strange to see which other comments were not censored by MSM Health, and these are noteworthy:
Comments from Black Racists:
fla 2009 at 3:10 PM: “WORLWIDE–2009 : YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A RACIST !!!! AND IN THIS COUNTRY THERE IS NO ROOM FOR YOUR KIND ANYMORE.”
Half Black Alabama at 1:38 PM: “Are you sure you’re not Adolf Hitler….you’re a raving MANIAC….go away, quickly.”
Comments from Censorship Advocates:
qk123 at 3:48 PM: “What the senate and congress should do is make a law that bans the nuts and the crazies from using the internet! BTW, the Independents don’t want you either!
Comments from Obama Supporters:
PeachesCreamLouise at 3:15 PM: “If you choose to associate Obama with Hitler feel free but they aren’t really similar. Just because you don’t agree with his views doesn’t mean he’s committing war crimes. Obama was born in the United States- he has made his birth certificate available for people to view, therefore he was born in the United States. I bet a lot of people have something in common with Hitler since a lot of people (mothers!?!?!?) enjoy cuddling babies and small children. Obama does have children! He could be harping about racial issues because he feels since he is the first black president he needs to do something. Who cares if he’s supported by homosexuals? If he was like Hitler he’d be praised by enthusiastic crowds in AMERICA. worldwide –2009, if he’s a war criminal go complain to Congress. You’re not getting anywhere with your complaining about our president on a flu article. What’s up with the diet and drinking links? They want to commit genocide on the whole world? You can’t blame me for being sceptical…..and these are the people I’m supposed to look up to? Spreading very unbelievable “stories” about our president, whom, remember, we voted for.”
SeattleMom at 2:45 PM: “Worldwide–2009, “ridiculous” does not even begin to describe your comparison of Barack Obama with Adolf Hitler. Not only are most of your comparisons completely false, the few that are true are completely irrelevant! I suppose I am also just like Hitler because I enjoy cuddling babies and small children…is that correct? Well, watch out world! Someone had better stop me before I hug another baby! You are absurd.”
wpf0319 at 2:40 PM: “All this ranting about President Obama is thinly disguised racism. Somehow it’s more acceptable to say he is a Socialist, show the birth certificate, the constitution, bla “>bla, bla bla… Ya”ll are hateful people.”
Dani from Texas at 2:29 PM: “WORLDWIDE—2009, YOU HAVE DESCRIBED EVERY PRESIDENT WE HAVE EVER HAD! YOUR A CRAZY LOON……YOU ARE BLAMING OBAMA FOR STUFF THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM! OBAMA CANT DO ANYTHING ALONE, SO WHILE YOUR RANTING WHY DONT YOU BLAME CONGRESS, FOR THEY ARE THE ONES THAT PASSED MOST OF YOUR RANTS INTO LAW, NOT OBAMA ALONE……WHY ARE WE BLAMING ONE MAN FOR ALL THIS MESS??? HOW MANY PEOPLE RUN OUR GOVERNMENT?? LAST TIME I CHECKED IT WASNT ONE MAN….AND THE LAST TIME I CHECKED ALL THIS MESS STARTED LONG BEFORE OBAMA BECAME PRESIDENT.”
gjtf at 2:02 PM: “worldwide 2009 GO AWAY!!!!! You sound like a Lunatic!!!”
Dr. SS at 2:00 PM: “OK, YOU ALL WHO ARE COMPARING OBAMA TO HITLER OR FASCISM; ALL OF YOU ARE EMPTY-HEADED HATE-MONGERERS AND HAVE NO EVIDENCE SO KEEP TALKING AND SHOW THE COUNTRY HOW STUPID YOU REALLY ARE… YOUR IQ IS LOWER THAN YOUR SHOE SIZE…”
Bob the dog at 1:55 PM: “Are you sure you’re not Adolf Hitler….you’re a raving MANIAC….go away, quickly.”
A few commentors who favor the First Amendment, protested the uneven censorship of comments thus:
From BC at 1:33 PM: “Agreed with you wisetowhatisgoingon Where are our Human Rights, our Freedom of speech? Can’t express our thoughts and our freedom without having someone removing our postings?”
435345 at 1:30 PM: “msn is deleting comments saying to not take the swine flu.so nice **** msn ! you are another NWO puppets.**** you the same way.”
wisetowhatisgoingon at 1:15 PM: “I guess msn is already in line for the removal of freedom of speech with the “change” administration. Proof of this is removing my response to another writer “silent but strong”. You are just like the brain dead left wing obamabot media. Kindly remove me from your system. Likewise I am removing you from my homepage. Hopefully you will find a place where the sun does not shine for your philosophy.”
PantaRei at 12:49 PM: “Why you are deleting the messages! Who pays you for that! Where are we living? Do we have to talk anly what is politicaly corrected?”
The Post & Email will post follow up stories on Obama-Censorship, as we become aware of evidence of other sites censoring his political opponents. Censorship is difficult to prove, you need to catch it and report it when it happens. Citizens who can do so with links are invited to send them to this News site (See our About page for more info).
