Y'all Better Shut Up!

Apparently, if you are a concerned citizen who thinks that the explosion in deficit spending over the last six months is a disaster for our Nation and children, you would be well served to keep it to yourself. Otherwise, you will be accused of being a part of:
angry mobs of a small number of rabid right wing extremists funded by K Street Lobbyists to disrupt thoughtful discussions about the future of health care in America taking place in Congressional Districts across the country.
None of us can think for ourselves apparently according to the Democratic National Committee. So you better leave all of your Congress critters alone, because you have no legitimate grounds to complain. Sure, they don't even pretend to read the bills they vote for, but they are assured by their staffs, so it must be okay. And don't even think about writing an email or a letter to the editor against this expenditure, because you will be reported to the White House.
I know that some of you will turn to the famous Hillary quote in your defense:
As Hillary Clinton famously yelled, “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, ‘WE ARE AMERICANS AND WE HAVE A RIGHT TO DEBATE AND DISAGREE WITH ANY ADMINISTRATION!’”
but you don't understand, it's only one way. It's okay for fascists to use fascistic tactics to shut down other fascists.
It's just not okay for you.
