Assimilation Into The Oborg


This is how assimilation into the Borg takes place:

How the White House silenced gun control groups

President Barack Obama’s gun control agenda is looking more doomed by the day, but gun control advocates still haven’t said a word to complain.

That’s no accident.

The White House knew its post-Newtown effort would require bringing key gun control groups into the fold. So the White House offered a simple arrangement: the groups could have access and involvement, but they’d have to offer silence and support in exchange.

The implied rules, according to conversations with many of those involved: No infighting. No second-guessing in the press. Support whatever the president and Vice President Joe Biden propose. And most of all, don’t make waves or get ahead of the White House.

In exchange: a voice in the discussions, a role in whatever final agreement is made and weekly meetings at the White House with Biden’s chief of staff, Bruce Reed — provided they don’t discuss what happens there.

“The implication is very, very strong when they are calling these meetings and we are all sitting there,” said one regular attendee, who like the others, would only speak about them anonymously. “It’s not like they’re being bullies, it’s them bringing everybody together, not being one-off meetings with groups that might be interested in things other than the bottom line, not providing the forum for that kind of stuff.”

“You’re glad to be in the room,” another participant in the Reed meetings said. “Because this issue has been dead for a long time and now there’s a real opportunity there.”

For the White House, which wouldn’t comment about Reed’s meetings or the relationships with the gun control groups, this strategy was about ensuring the president had a united front as he pushed for new laws — and that he won’t shoulder the blame if and when the negotiations fail.

But he’s forced a major change on some of Washington’s noisiest advocates: the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Third Way, Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Americans for Responsible Solutions, the organization founded by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and her husband, Mark Kelly. In past fights, gun control groups sparred with each other and got used to dictating the agenda to allies in Congress.

Now they’re just happy to be included in the discussion, and still holding out hope that something might happen.

The best part? The White House serves free Kool Aid at all the meetings!

Resistance is futile.

The Borg are a collection of species that have been turned into cybernetic organisms functioning as drones of the collective or the hive. A pseudo-race, dwelling in the Star Trek universe, the Borg force other species into their collective and connect them to “the hive mind”; the act is called assimilation and entails violence, abductions, and injections of cybernetic implants. The Borg’s ultimate goal is “achieving perfection”.

    Reminds me of this comment over at WHD by “matt” ….

    I spent some time over at HuffyPost last night to watch the comments on Rand Pauls Filibuster effort. My first time doing that at that site. I think what ALL establishment types dont understand, the Libertarian philosophy is the answer for finding the middle ground where most Americans can agree. Or, they do understand and thats why both sides they hyperpartisan media and establishment organizations constantly spread teh ‘Kook” lies about Libertarians. There were Libs last night on Huffy who were flabergasted that they themselves were siding with that evil Tea Party Conservative Ted Cruz from that evil troglydyte state of Texas.
    I made the claim repeatedly, people NEED to get off the cable news networks, or at least start questioning what they are being told by them, and actually LISTEN to what the representatives are actually saying rather than trusting the bloviating partisan heads paid massive salaries to prattle off the DNC or RNC establishment talking points.
    Libertarianism is the best and brightest future our Republic has, otherwise its a future of Tyranny wearing alternating Blue and Red jerseys.

    Gives me hope that the Oborg’s greatest threat may be the newly awakened from both sides of the aisle who are serious about finding that middle ground.

    Some people are so in love with the fantasy of Obama, with the composite they’ve created in their minds, that they don’t even see how they’re being played.

    When I look back on my life as a lefty, I think this has always been the case. People have always taken odd characters and created heroic fantasies about them. Chavez, Mao, Jim Jones. All these scary people become transformed into some sort of radical hero fighting the man. It’s such a powerful delusion, that they’ll even over look the obvious human rights violations. As evidence, I’ll present Dennis Rodman with his perception on Kim Jong-un, as a very humble and wonderful person.

      It happens on both sides.

      • yttik says:

        I don’t think it’s the same at all. The right has it’s heroes, the founding fathers, President Reagan, but no crazy dictators or cult leaders. The right is much more likely to dump a hero who shows defects, like President Nixon. Bush received far more criticism from the right than President Obama has from the left. Newt for example, was not the Republican nominee, but if he had been a lefty, I bet his sexual indiscretions, hypocrisy, and marital problems would have been ignored.

      I’ve had a few conversations lately with people who still talk about Obama as an angelic change-agent, a passionate, visionary, and a deeply caring man. It’s all projection of their own fantasy, because it’s not based on fact. But we all know–they don’t want to hear the facts, because that ruins the euphoria of being in love.

      Being in love with your own illusions really sucks, eventually you figure it out and realize what a waste of time it’s been.

    On the gun control messaging strategy, what he is basically telling those groups, many of whom DO wish to ban guns almost entirely, is “Don’t be stupid and say what you really want. It will spook the public. Shut up and let me boil the frog slowly.”

    And they are going along.

    You know what I loved the most about the filibuster last night? For a few brief shining hours in America, at least among the citizens watching it, an issue wasn’t about political strategy. It wasn’t about “who you are going to vote for?” Vote for whoever you like, has nothing to do with this. It wasn’t about an election at all. It might be later, but in that moment? Nope.

    It wasn’t about massaging either your message or your support so as to not give “ammunition” to the “wrong” side. It wasn’t calculated to do a damn thing but let us yell TELL THE TRUTH, and demand some accountability for the people.

    Those moments, while not everyday occurences, used to be fairly common in America. I remembered them last night. I miss them.

      Oh look the CNN peeps are spinning as fast as they can to say that despite Obama parsing and hedging rather than just saying “No the government does not have the Constitutional authority to kill a US citizen on US citizen who isn’t posing an imminent and immediate threat of death or grave bodily harm to others” is really, IN HIS HEART “on the same page” as Rand.
      Flying monkeys — the lot of them.

    Medaite oborgs are furious at this article

    Rand Paul Shatters Democratic Monopoly On Romance And Captures The Hearts Of The Young Voter
    … But as the hours wore on, another phenomenon began to take shape – Paul’s ultimately unsuccessful efforts to rein in the president spoke directly to the forgotten millions of Americans wary of the ever-expanding scope of the unconstrained global war on terror. Paul offered himself up as something of a martyr. His voice, once lonely, grew in stature as his Republican colleagues – one after the next – shared his demand for redress from the White House, though all knew that would not be forthcoming. It was poetic. It was romantic. What may be most important, it reframed Congressional Republicans. All of the sudden, they were fighting for a cause with self-evident nobility that requires no public education campaign: life, liberty, and due process. In filibustering, Paul chipped away at the monopoly on romance that the left has enjoyed for more than a century.

    I have not been assimilated , my power went out for most of yesterday evening , but it came back on about 11 pm , and then they turned it off today again to make emergency repairs ., but what bothered me more than anything were the dead and broken branches hitting my roof intermittently . That and the size of some of themthat were on the ground this morning .
    Today so far so good, power back , roof intact except for a few shingles here and there . I have gotten very little sleep and my nerves are frazzled , but I will NOT be assimilated, not even if they throw in a hot tub .
    Obama is not to be trusted , ever , under any circumstances , period the end .
    Rand Paul made history , and is changing the game . 🙂

        I have a fireplace and many candles, must be a memory from a former life that tells me what to do 😉 , but it was getting seriously cold after about 8 hours without power, even with extra clothing on and bundled in blankets
        . As soon as the power came back on I made myself something hot to eat , and I felt better . I am considering one of those wood fired hot tubs tho lol .
