Wyoming Christians Report Forced Obamacare RFID Chipping

Obamacare officials have been inserting RFID chips into citizens hands, despite significant protest.
First, they chipped the welfare recipients and government employees who couldn’t afford to refuse. Next, they chipped the school children, who didn’t know how to refuse. Now, they are chipping Christians who try to refuse.

National Report, the only major agency refusing Obama’s implicit order to not cover RFID chipping, has been receiving reports from small congregations throughout Wyoming that Obamacare officials have been entering churches, giving a brief demonstration on the importance of RFID chipping, and refusing to let church members leave until RFID chips have been implanted in the hands of the members. Thus far, we have received reports from 11 congregations throughout rural Wyoming. No doubt, more will continue to emerge.

An excerpt from one such report is included below. It has been edited for publication, but its content has not been altered.

“We had just finished our closing prayer, when we heard the door to the sanctuary open. I turned around, and saw 3 men in suits standing in the door. One of the men walked down the aisle and asked if he could say a few words. Being good Christians, and assuming his intent was pure, we told him he could. He proceeded to tell us that he was from the government, and was here to implant us with our new RFID chips. He told us the chips were important, that they would help heal the weak and sickly. He quoted to us from the scripture. Suspecting that he may be an agent of evil, we refused the chips. Our protests were met with force. More men entered the church, and we were systematically forced down and chips were inserted into our hands.”

Never take anything at face value my friends

http://urbanlegends.about.com/b/2013/07/28/bogus-news-rfid-c...

from the link:

"Wake up, Internet! That viral "news" story claiming welfare recipients in Wyoming are required by law to have RFID chips implanted in their butts is a spoof, completely false.

The item was published on the satirical website NationalReport.net, whose disclaimer page reads: "National Report is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news.""

Shit, no one was supposed to know until we'd gotten to the NRA. Just one more blunder from this administration, I suppose.

I believe National Report is one of a breed of political "satire" sites that are not in the least funny.

Mine was inserted anally.


I went through the line four times.


I assume you're still referring to BJ's hand?

It is kind of getting annoying. You can tell an Onion article is satire, but these other sites seem to try to write in a fashion that will allow a story to percolate up through the "true believer" ranks into the mainstream and they get off on how far the story can go before they are revealed as concocted "humor".

EDIT: by "true believer" I mean tin foil beanie wearers, not religionists.

But it must be true, it blames Obama for something.

Satire doesn't need to be funny, you know. Classic satire often isn't. The point isn't necessarily to be funny, but is always to make fun of a subject, generally with the purpose of drawing attention to perceived problems.

See "The Handmaid's Tale" (which certain nuts think is a prescription, not a warning), "Erewhon", Jonathon Swift's pamphlets and books (especially his "Modest Proposal"), and swathes of Orwell.

Part of the value of satire is that it forces the reader to think about just what it is they are reading.

Huge swathes of people don't want to think.

And by the time a "this is satire that got picked up and spread as truth" is debunked, the damage is done.
