Obama Administration Launches Online Thought Police: “Attack Watch”


Are your friends and neighbors disseminating attacks or misinformation about the Obama Administration? Well, citizen, now you have a place to report those poor souls to the Bureau of Correct Thought—AKA,  #AttackWatch or, on Twitter,  @AttackWatch… or on the web atwww.AttackWatch.com.

The Attack Watch campaign’s attempt to stifle criticism has so spectacularly backfired that it lacks a precedent. Within minutes of its launch, a  tidal wave of snark directed towards the Obama Administration, and its strikingly Soviet-era attempt to monitor online dissent, descended on the hash tag.

Speaking of Soviet-era, there is something in this that is reminiscent about the legend of Stalin’s favorite informant and model of all right-thinking communists, Pavlik Morozov.
