I admit it; I am a hater. I utterly detest Rush Limbaugh; Ann Coulter makes my skin crawl, and I HATE FOX NEWS! I forbid anyone in my house to watch Fox News. I would sooner stick hot pokers in my eyes than listen to the overly groomed news anchors (whom I liken to deadly spiders and refuse to call journalists) casting their idiotic propaganda across America like a giant spider web. What I hate the most is that we all know someone caught in that web, someone who sits in their easy chair, being spun around and around into a cozy little cocoon of falsehoods and lies. They are being brainwashed; victims of mind control because they take what they hear on Fox News as the gospel truth. Are we helpless to save them?
Fox News, on the other hand, insists that the content of their broadcasts represent credible reporting of the news. Then again, they don’t have to believe that what they are broadcasting is based upon facts gathered from reliable sources (other than Google). CNN is the poster child for errant reporting, but for the most part, I think they try to promote somewhat factual reporting of the news. Not Fox. They have become one the most watched news channels in America, and they got there by feeding on the ignorance and lack of common sense of it’s viewers. I’m not talking about the occasional viewer who is channel surfing and lands there for a moment thinking they are watching a rerun of The Stepford Wives, I’m referring to the people who feed off the propaganda that tells them to mistrust their government (read Obama) because Obama has a hidden agenda. An agenda run by left wing liberals, socialists, atheists, homosexuals, lions and tigers and bears, OH MY! An anti-Christian agenda aiming to take away their constitutional and God given rights: take away their guns, stop them from their march to convert the entire nation into followers of their evangelical Christian beliefs; and ultimately force them to live in a society where all citizens are equal, no matter their color, religion, sexual or political persuasion.
I don’t normally respond to emails such as the one below, but I happened to be on the distribution list of a friend who circulated the email to over 75 people. I was somewhat stunned when I saw who was forwarding the email because they did not fit my profile of those who believe such garbage. In my mind, these people are Fox News viewing, Confederate flag waving; bible thumping, racist bigots (who vote in large numbers) who get riled when they read that Obama is winning his secret war to wipe out the Christians under the guise of OBAMACARE! I imagine the origin of these emails comes from someone who does not necessarily believe what they are sending is factual, but because they get a kick out of knowing that when they circulate such garbage they know there are some who will fall for it.
In this instance I had no choice but to respond because it really irked me to the point where I forwarded the email to my better half (who just happens to works for said government) to get his input. He, like I, became so outraged that he researched the content of the email and responded with the appropriate commentary and the results of his research. When I thought about how many of the recipients of this email would blindly forward it on to those on their contact lists, it made me think about the old shampoo commercial where one lady tells her friend how wonderful the shampoo is, so she tells her friends, who tell their friends, and so on, and so on. With that in mind, I’m sharing this email string with you because it tells me we need to stand together as the “liberals” we are and need to poke their little cocoons with a stick until we free them from the spider’s web.

Subject: What does this word mean?
The word “Dhimmitude” is found in the new health care bill in the USA; so what does it mean?
Thought this was interesting and worth passing on.
Obama used it in the health care bill.
Now isn’t this interesting?
It is also included in the health care law.
Dhimmitude — I had never heard the word until now. I typed it into Google and started reading. Pretty interesting. It’s on page 107 of the healthcare bill. I looked this up on Google and yep, it exists. It is a REAL word.
Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim populations conquered through jihad (Holy War). Specifically, it is the TAXING of non-Muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to Islam.
ObamaCare allows the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia Muslim diktat in the United States .Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be “gambling”, “risk-taking”, and “usury” and is thus banned. Muslims are specifically granted exemption based on this.
How convenient. So I, as a Christian, will have crippling IRS liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate, cattle, and even accounts receivable, and will face hard prison time because I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax.
Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan (the Muslim) will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health insurance needs paid for by the de facto government insurance. Non-Muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize Muslims. This is Dhimmitude.
I recommend sending this on to your contacts.
All American citizens need to know about it !!

This is complete nonsense. Only someone who is very gullible would believe this. Anyone can search the text of the law by googling PPACA, the official acronym of Obamacare, which will take you to heathcare.gov, which is the official site for the act. That will link you to the GPO – the government printing office ( http://www.gpo.gov/ ) which prints the official version. The certified full text version of the PPACA:
http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/PLAW-111publ148/pdf/PLAW-111publ148.pdf and the certified full text version of the reconciliation act, which was needed to enact it: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/PLAW-111publ152/pdf/PLAW-111publ152.pdf
Using a simple word search (ctrl-f) on the PDF doc looking for variations of the word Dhimmitude I found nothing. That’s because it’s not there.
This is a straight up lie that the person who originated this note is spreading. Anyone with a computer could check this, which would include everyone on the mailing list of this message. Only someone who suffers from Dhumbitude would believe this stupidity. Why would congress – both houses – allow something like that?
If you follow the link to snopes at the bottom of the original message you’ll see that it’s been proven false. Of course it’s edited to look like it’s been proven. http://www.snopes.com/politics/medical/exemptions.asp. This link discusses in detail the religious exemption language of the PPACA.

Excellent analysis. The lies that XXXX forwarded need to be shown for be the spurious garbage that it is. This is typical of what I see and hear on right wing talk radio and Fox News. However, the people that believe this crap never bother to check the facts and so it continues to be disseminated as true. I rarely bother to point this out anymore because the folks who spew this garbage are completely brain washed and don’t care what the truth is.
Bravo to muellerdc for taking the time to present the truth.
