Obamacare to be Launched with a Star-Studded Celebrity Propaganda Campaign

endorseThe Organic Prepper

If you need a sure way to identify that a proposed law or regulation is bad news, perhaps the fact that it has to be presented by movie stars and professional athletes to make it palatable could be a clue.

The White House is apparently getting celebrity endorsements to help sway the public opinion on Obamacare.

After all, if that NFL superstar thinks it’s a good idea, all the wannabe jocks will think it’s a good idea.  If that beautiful, compassionate starlet thinks that Obamacare is indicative of the Second Coming, then it must be true.  And then there is that comedian, you know, the liberal one that wears the funny glasses – you can tell he’s brilliant by just listening to him use big words to make fun of liberty-minded folks – he thinks Obamacare is great too!

The White House is working to recruit Hollywood celebrities to help promote ObamaCare, a top celebrity political adviser told The Hill.

Trevor Neilson, a veteran of the Clinton White House, said he’s in talks with the Obama administration and that his clients are “looking at ways to be involved.”

“I think the White House is very wise to identify partners to help market the Affordable Care Act,” Neilson said Tuesday. ”Just like any good product, when people are aware of the many benefits it provides, there will be increased demand.” The Obama administration is working on ways to sell its signature healthcare law to the public over the next six months.

And this is how socialism is going to be rolled out – on a star-studded red carpet.

If this tactic sounds familiar, you need only look back at the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, when NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg assembled a group of celebrities to seriously stare into the camera and shill for gun control. (See that video HERE)

It’s all advertising.  Millions of dollars are spent on celebrity endorsements of products every year because it is a marketing scheme that works, particularly in today’s star-struck, reality-TV-loving society.  Young people and people of a lower IQ are particularly likely to be influenced by celebrity endorsements.

Another name for  this is “testimonial propaganda”:

This is the celebrity endorsement of a philosophy, movement or candidate. In advertising, for example, athletes are often paid millions of dollars to promote sports shoes, equipment and fast food. In political circles, movie stars, television stars, rock stars and athletes lend a great deal of credibility and power to a political cause or candidate.Just a photograph of a movie star at political rally can generate more interest in that issue/candidate or cause thousands, sometimes millions, of people to become supporters.

There is a reason that celebrity endorsement is a billion dollar industry. According to Bloomberg, last year just in social media endorsements, advertisers spent $4.8 billion.  That amount is expected to increase to a whopping $9.8 billion by 2016. Many stars get paid to “tweet” about a product they’re endorsing, or to talk about it on Facebook.  It is a direct way into the consumer’s phone or computer, and because it seems to be unscripted and coming right from the famous individual, people are more likely to pay attention than an advertisement on TV that will just reach them passively.

What does this mean for the rest of us?

By rolling out the movie stars and athletes, the Obama administration is taking their propaganda to the next level. They are attempting to divert discussion about their unconstitutional behavior and about their descent into a nanny state by steering the masses toward acceptance.

This manipulation makes it far more difficult to have a realistic debate about the topic. While one side is presenting facts (like the one that the Affordable Care Act could cost some families as much as $20,000 per year) the other side is presenting glossy movie stars in $2000 red-soled Louboutin pumps.

If an administration must use propaganda, and manipulation to get citizens on board with a legislation, that legislation must be looked at with the utmost suspicion. Coating fecal matter with a sparkly layer of sugar might make it prettier, but it’s still a turd underneath.

  1. I’m guessing these celebrated individuals will probably be a lot more expensive than his crisis actors, but I hope he’s not expecting any return on his celebrity dollar from me. I am not paying so much as one thin dime for Obama care.
    I’d boycott the “celebrities” themselves as well, but the fact of the matter is that I probably don’t know who they are because I’ve already been doing that for a long time. I didn’t even know what Brittney Spears looked like until the little coke-head tramp was caught flashing her snatch in public and the photos wound up on the internet.
    Every one of these professional liars is only working to further the agenda of murderous, thieving Zionists, so anyone who pays any respect or tribute whatsoever to their “celebrity” status is about as foolish as Obama’s brainwashed “hope and change” followers.

    1. Im thinkin you and I both will be paying Roger…he’s certainly not gonna use his personal funds to pay thse idiots.

  2. Didnt they parade this same group of so called “actors” to grab guns and they were ridiculed and made fun of for the nothings they really are.Some one tell these puffed up nothings– BOYCOTTs are expensive,there really isnt an ounce of talent in all of holly weird thats worth minimum wage let alone the huge sums they are paid for rehashing old movies,how long since an original thought came to the box office,nothing but silly assed comic books and remade classic movies and they call it “talent”

  3. And just think how lucky we are to have all this propaganda paid for with our tax dollars…..Wake up & start EXPOSING…..Look up who is in charge of handling our $’s. For instance: Why is Deputy Secretary of The Treasury David S. Cohen in charge of Terrorist Funding? Get the hint???? Fight For Truth, Liberty & Freedom

    1. Why is Deputy Secretary of The Treasury David S. Cohen in charge of Terrorist Funding?

      While his Kosher Komrade in arms, John KOHN, which is John Kerry’s real last name, mans the State Department, urging on more war to keep us safe.

      Safe, from what? What we need is protection against the Wall Street bankers who think that our pocketbooks is for them to use whenever another of their casino bets go bust.

  4. When they have to resort to celebrities to endorse Obamacare without a debate, then you know Obamacare is F**ked up.

    Whatever happened to talking about it? I thought this was Communism. Why can’t we just talk about Obamacare? Can’t we just talk about it? What’s wrong with just talking about it?

    When the government wants to talk about it and the people dont, then it’s ok. But when the government doesn’t want to talk about it and the people do, it’s NOT ok. I see how it is.

    It’s all about siding with the government on everything. The government matters and WE the people don’t. To Hell with the treasonous government and the sleazeball Hollywood celebrities who parade around like greedy lawyers and used car salesmen selling their souls to the devil himself.

  5. Well what do you know. Here is a comment I posted on an earlier article, before I saw this one:

    “Why don’t they just do what they usually do. Get those brain-dead artists (actors/actresses/singers) and/or sports stars to try and sell it to the sheeple. They listen to those idiots far more than they do the so-called ‘government’, or even their own kids for that matter.”

    Shoulda known.
