ONCE AGAIN, RIGHT BLAMES BUSH-ERA ORWELLIANISM ON OBAMA

Drudge:

The link (tweeted by Drudge and also at the Drudge Report) goes to this Gateway Pundit post:
Just in case you want more Obama in your life...
AT&T is loading iPhones with emergency alerts from Barack Obama...
That you can't switch off.....

Engadget reported:
AT&T has begun rolling out Wireless Emergency Alerts updates for iPhone 4S and 5, so you won't be the last folks to know if the entire northern hemisphere is about to be covered in ice à la Day After Tomorrow.

You'll receive a notification from the carrier when your update is ready, but only if you're using iOS 6.1 or higher.

Once installed, AMBER and Emergency alerts are automatically sent to your phone unless you switch them off via Settings. However, should you be tired of Obama, just know that there’s no way to switch off Presidential alerts.
So now Barack can track your calls and send you messages, too....
A quick search of the Net reveals that right-wingers (Pam Geller, Alex Jones) have been flipping out about this for quite a while, although even Fox Business acknowledges that "presidential alerts," which would be sent to all enabled recipients in the U.S., are intended to be for the direst of natural disasters and other emergencies.

But isn't this just Obama megalomania? No, as the FCC explains:
Why can't consumers block WEAs [Wireless Emergency Alerts] issued by the President?

In passing the WARN Act, Congress allowed participating carriers to offer subscribers the capability to block all WEAs except those issued by the President.
The WARN Act is the Warning, Alert and Response Network Act, which was passed as part of a larger port security bill ... in 2006. That's 2006 as in "when Republicans controlled the White House and both houses of Congress."

So, yeah, this is more Obama fascism that was actually a Bush-era idea.

GOP POV:
W, our "Young Churchill" was a great, great leader.

And if he did something, he had a good reason - unlike O'Blackie.

Besides, he was our'n snooper, not like your'n snooper, who is much worse.
Plus, W wasn't a black'n.

The sad thing is that even though I’m pretty sure that the first commenter is parodying a wingnut, there’s no way to know any more. At this point, even spouting a Hitler quote or talking about how great the KKK is wouldn’t be enough to make it clear that it’s parody.

The term "black'n" is a sign that it's a parody.

In public, a real wingnut would say "not a real American" or some such phrase, and in private would use a word beginning with "n".

Oh my god, I went there.

"...late last year, Obama strong-armed major advertisers (via the FCC) to ensuring at LEAST one black is in EVERY TV COMMERCIAL. This was in full swing by December 2012."

I...uh...what...?

*facepalm*

We're doomed.
