Against ObamaCare?


Differences of opinion and ideology, passionately held, drive the opposition against ObamaCare.

Yet to shut down the effort to overturn ObamaCare’s unpopular assault on freedom and prosperity, the left resorts to a frequently employed tactic. They and their media co-conspirators find whack jobs holding stupid signs — or saying or doing stupid things — and say, “See! Right-wing intolerance, hatred and racism fuel this movement.”

Idiots, wing nuts and haters exist — on both sides of the political spectrum — in a country of 300 million people. Those who threaten and engage in violence should be arrested and prosecuted. Those who use incendiary language should be denounced.

But which “hater” said the following, and where was the condemnation?

“The (George W.) Bush administration and the Nazi and Communist regimes all engaged in the politics of fear. … Indeed, the Bush administration has been able to improve on the techniques used by the Nazi and Communist propaganda machines.” Was it a) Miss Piggy, b) Lady Gaga, c) the Dog Whisperer, or d) George Soros, billionaire Democratic supporter?

“(George W. Bush’s) executive branch has made it a practice to try and control and intimidate news organizations, from PBS to CBS to Newsweek. … And every day, they unleash squadrons of digital brownshirts to harass and hector any journalist who is critical of the President.” a) Dan Rather, b) Katie Couric, c) Helen Thomas, d) Al Gore, Nobel laureate.

“(Republicans are) coming for our children. They’re coming for the poor. They’re coming for the sick, the elderly and the disabled.” a) Mother Teresa, b) the Grim Reaper, c) Jack Bauer, d) Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga.

The contest between Democrats and Republicans is “a struggle of good and evil. And we’re the good.” a) Wolverine, b) Spider-Man, c) RoboCop, d) Howard Dean, then-Democratic national chairman.

When asked whether the number and prominence of blacks in the Bush administration suggested a lack of racism, he said, “Hitler had a lot of Jews high up in the hierarchy of the Third Reich.” a) Adolf Eichmann, b) Joseph Goebbels, c) Heinrich Himmler, d) Harry Belafonte, entertainer and liberal activist.

He called President Bush’s perceived lack of help for Katrina victims “ethnic cleansing by inaction” and called it a “calculated … policy.” He added, “So by simply not doing anything to alleviate this … crisis that was so greatly exaggerated by Katrina, they let the hurricane do the ethnic cleansing, and their hands are clean.” a) David Duke, b) Jack the Ripper, c) Jeffrey Dahmer, d) Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass.

“When you look at the way the (then-Republican-controlled) House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation. And you know what I’m talking about.” a) Kunta Kinte, b) Harriet Tubman, c) Booker T. Washington, d) then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, former first lady and current secretary of State.

“George Bush let people die on rooftops in New Orleans because they were poor and because they were black.” a) Ming the Merciless, b) Ivan the Terrible, c) Vlad the Impaler, d) Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo.

“It’s not ‘spic’ or ‘nigger’ anymore. (Instead, Republicans) say, ‘Let’s cut taxes.’” a) Bernie Madoff, b) Bonnie and Clyde, c) Bennie and the Jets, d) Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y.

“You’re damn right; Dick Cheney’s heart’s a political football. We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him.” a) Dr. Seuss, b) Dr. Oz, c) Dr. J, d) Ed Schultz, MSNBC and radio host.

“We are in danger. The extreme right wing has seized the government. Tonight (John) Ashcroft and the CIA and the FBI and Homeland Security and the IRS can work together. So look out, because without a definition of who is a terrorist, anyone can be. … Martin Luther King could have been. … The right-wing media, the FBI — they are targeting our leadership.” a) Mr. T, b) Flavor Flav, c) Gary Coleman, d) the Rev. Jesse Jackson.

“And what we are dealing with right now in this country is whether we are having a kind of bloodless, silent coup or not. … (George W. Bush) is trying to bring to himself all the power to become an emperor — to create Empire America,” a) Darth Vader, b) Satan, c) the Rev. Pat Robertson, d) Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash.

Lanny Davis, former special counsel to President Bill Clinton, campaigned for Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut. Lieberman, despite his reliably left-wing voting record, infuriated the left for supporting the Iraq War. Davis found himself on the receiving end of “hate and vitriol of bloggers on the liberal side of the aisle” and “their extremism, bigotry and intolerance.” A friend and fellow Lieberman supporter, said Davis, became “fearful for his physical safety.”

“I held on to the view,” Davis admitted, “that the left was inherently more tolerant and less hateful than the right. … I have reluctantly concluded that I was wrong. The far right does not have a monopoly on bigotry and hatred and sanctimony.”

The majority of Americans oppose ObamaCare. Their opposition is not racist, fascist or intolerant. Let us work to prevail.

    Feel that dp love and kindness. The dp assumes everybody else thinks like them, and one can tell what they're doing or planning to do by what they accuse the GOP of doing. It's obvious their only real war is against America. America, Americans, and our allies are the only ones they call evil, are the only ones they use war language on, often using the exact same words and phrases they decry when the GOP uses them against America's mortal enemies. We're not supposed to notice that, or the violence that results here and abroad from their bs. More people notice every day though, and they're noticing the msm is the propaganda arm of the dp.

  • AntiFascist18

    The REAL RACISTS are Democrat Nazis like Obama, Pelosi, Reid and their Jewish sycophants like Giffords, Grayson, Filner, Ackerman, Waxman, et. al.,

    Otherwise why do they tolerate the likes of Senator Byrd? Or Jesse Jackson??

    Care to answer that one, Mr. Belafonte???

  • AntiFascist18

    P.S. Soros was a NAZI collaborator…and the Chimp's prime financier (outside of Hamas)…need I say more???

    • Dennis X

      Thank you for confirming just how racist america is.

    I would be most helpful if Larry could provide a citation for each quotation. That would help convince the middle-of-the-road types. And that is what we want, more converts. Especially with the extra proof, this could become a very popular email that friends would send to each other.

  • Chuck

    desert curmudgeon, it would take a person about one minute per quote to find that with a Google search. If you think this would help convince the middle of the road types, do a quick search and you can find it. Probably most of these are on YouTube in one or more video clips.

    Oh my God!!

    It’s Happening!!!

    I called my doctors office just one week after Health Care reform and I got a recorded message saying that due to the government takeover of health care he was no longer seeing private patients and was being forcibly move to a huge government medical building. I called My insurance company the person on the phone whispered that private health insurance had been eliminated and from now on I would have to call a government health exchange for insurance…if there was any left.
    Frantic, I called the Pharmacy at our local supermarket . The clerk who answered the phone said that the pharmacy had being forced to close in an morning raid by the DEA and that all the pharmacists and drugs had been taken to the big government health care building .
    I called my local Catholic hospital. A nun answered . Weeping hysterically she said that they had been shut down, all the doctor and nurses had been forced onto buses and taken to the big government health care building. They were all being forced to become federal employees, And all the old patients in the hospital…..they had been wheeled out on gurneys and left in the street under the hot sun and shivering cold night to die. My God, Sarah was right!!

    Just one week after Health care reform, Armageddon!!
    Freedom is coming to an end.
    Life as we know it is finished.
    The Communists have taken over!!

    Oh God!!!

      Many provisions of the health care package are not scheduled to take effect for several years so the sky is not likely to fall anytime soon. Health care reform is designed to work on the boiled frog principle and people won't begin feeling the pain for a long time. Long after Barack Obama has had his shot at reelection and people have forgotten who voted for this thing.

    • Radegunda

      Norris Hall is parroting the utterly childish Obama bully-boy taunts–when he ridiculed opponents of DemCare because Armageddon hadn't happened by two or three days after the signing. That's right, three days should be PLENTY of time to see how it all works, according to Obozo.

      Except that a few days later he was saying: it was signed a week ago, and thus and such hasn't happened, and it's like the farmer who plants seeds and comes back a week later and there are no crops and the farmer cries, "Oh no, we're going to starve!" . . . Ergo, a week is TOO SOON to see how it will all work?

      Obozo is either too stupid to realize when he has completely contradicted himself or too dishonest to care. Probably both.

      "Moron"? Good self-description but superfluous. Your reputation precedes you.
