Orwellian: Obama Campaign Now Tracking Email Addresses that Have Not Donated to Campaign
In yet another mass email to its supporters, the Obama campaign is again demanding money. However, the wording reveals a rather Orwellian secret: the campaign knows if you have donated or not based solely on the email address they are tracking.
The email, from campaign manager Jim Messina, starts average enough. Messina touts the President and the money they’ve raised. For example, “more than 1.8 million Americans — 567,044 of whom were first-time donors — giving an average donation of just $53. And 98% of the donations were $250 and under.”
But things turn south very quickly. The email quickly tries to shame the reader into donating, then states flatly that they are keeping “records” on your email. Messina writes accusingly, “according to our records associated with this email address, you haven’t donated to this campaign yet. With just one month left, what’s holding you back?”
In other words, “we’re watching you. Now give us money.”
But the cringe-worthy “records” that the Obama campaign is keeping is what makes this email, among the myriad emails demanding money, stand out. Even if you support President Obama, do you really want his cronies tracking your email and keeping tabs on you?
