YouTube Star (Thomas Paine) Summoned To White House?

The man who created two phenomenally successful "We The People" YouTube videos urging Americans to stand up against Congress and reclaim their republic now – or perhaps lose it forever – reportedly has been summoned to the White House by President Obama to discuss the subject matter of the short films.

Bob Basso, who posts videos under the name funbobbasso on YouTube, has created videos in which he portrays Thomas Paine, author of the "Common Sense" pamphlet that made the case for independence during the American Revolution.

Basso, whose website offers his services as a motivational speaker, uses the YouTube presentations to condemn "non-representing representatives" and warns, "Only when they feel the almighty wrath of 'We The People' marching in the streets from California to New York shouting 'We're mad as hell and we want our country back' will they get the message they work for you."

Don't bother

This guy is not a believer in individual liberty. He's espouses a mess of contradictory conservative/populist/nationalist/neo-conservative crap. The real Thomas Paine is rolling in his grave.

Yeah. He just makes a lot of noise I think.

You are correct

He is a plant. LISTEN to what he says. His popularity was created. People are responding to his rage, not words. Do not help promote this guy.

People say he supports mandatory service, but he also

was in one on Rahm Emmuel's brother's shows. Coincidence? Who knows, too close for me. I posted something a few months ago that basically said, "beware, now is the time when fake leaders and shills with bad information or calls for action will attempt to corrupt our movement" We are seeing it big time now.

"Summoned"?

by a two-bit con artist pretender? That he went tells us his character and integrity.

I've never heard of him

but will check out his YouTubes.

Would you go?

Is it an invite or a summons? Can he turn down the invite? Would you go???

Who the f*ck gets "summoned?" Obomba really must think he is a king or something.

He's a mainstream conservative.

At least in the 'Second American Revolution' video I saw. I saw lots and lots and lots about immigration, but nothing about loss of civil liberties, corruption, unconstitutional governance---his stuff sounds like the rantings of a talk radio host, not an angry Founding Father.

He has reduced Paine himself to a soundbite launcher for the phrase "Is it 'Common Sense' to...?" What garbage.

He favors involuntary

He favors involuntary service among other things...

Then He's Part Of The Problem

And it figures he'd be invited.

Thomas Paine? That guy's a false alarm!

Lucky that Obama picked on Thomas Paine this time.......because the fake Thomas Paine does not carry the message of true freedom that Paul does.

Hey you know Obama is technically a good guy, I'm sure he will attempt to help this Paine guy get his message out.

But Obama is controlled by negative & corrupt people, its the way it is, Geithner gives him his marching orders. If that guy gets to respond he will probably try to have Thomas Paine thrown in a huge prison for fun!!

Obama technically a good guy?

huh?

Maybe he thinks he is the guy that writes "house of payne"

summoned to the White House to discuss

"the disturbing videos"???? Since when does the President summon someone to the White House for their views? If this is legit, this is insane. Is Obama going to line us all up outside the White House and discuss our disturbing posts on DP? Bush was bad, real bad, but this guy is insane.

You are certainly ( and not just virtually) correct that they are planting astroturf as they prepare to fill the Coliseum.

Thank you for your discernment.

But quacks are usually small time, independent pretenders.

What would you call a charlatan underwritten by the Medical/Pharma Complex ?

Sadly, B T Barnum was right.

So what do we do if we can't be heard over the noise of the crowd and loud speakers ?

Obama probably wants to buy

Obama probably wants to buy him off because he is able to sell the national service message while talking a good game about patriotism to the right wing, unlike Obama himself.

That's terrible

You know Obama is going to give him an offer he can't refuse. There is no way there can be any good come of this. Let's pray for him.

Perhaps he will become a candidate for attitude adjustment or

enhancement. Oh but to be a fly on the wall to discover what manner of packaging will be used for the intimidation.

They are going to threaten him.

You can already see that this is the tone of the Obama administration.

We're gonna be in for a helluva 4 years.
Look at what he's already doing in the first 2 months!

Wow. I hope he doesn't get "an offer he can't refuse"

I like that guy. The white house can only invite btw. They have no summons authority.

Perhaps this is our fate too...

I sure hope Dr. Basso isn't labeled an "enemy combatant" for insiting dissent
and held captive without habeus corpus.
See...this is what happens in a police-state when you post something on YouTube, or FaceBook, etc....you get noticed by the very folks you're trying to overthrow.
