If You're Against ObamaCare, You're a "Birther", Racist and........

Cross-posted by Gary Fouse

Just this past week, we have seen the liberal playbook in action. Not only are they calling out the goons from ACORN and the labor unions to show up at town hall meetings and go after the anti-government health care folks, they are stigmatizing those who oppose said government health care.

President Obama led off the new tact himself this week when he referred to the protesters, in a speech, as the ones who created the mess, saying that they should stop talking and "get out of the way". Sit down and shut up in other words.

According to Nancy Pelosi, protesters are showing up flying the Nazi flag. (Actually, some posters are equating the swastika with government health care, but what are details to Pelosi?)

Then there is New York Times columnist and Princeton professor Paul (the Worm) Krugman, a walking poster boy for how ridiculous the Nobel Prize has become, who wrote a column this week in the Times drawing a link between the protesters and "Birthers", as well as those who "have racial fears about having a black president". You see, all those folks who have turned out to oppose government health care are just a bunch of racists and folks who believe Obama was really born in Kenya. Talk like that will get you a Nobel Prize (for economics) and a teaching gig at Princeton.)

But last night on MSNBC, left-wing hostess (and Tim Geithner look-a-like *) Rachel Maddow had one of her regulars on-left-wing writer Frank Schaeffer. This character wrote a book called "Crazy for God", which blasted his conservative, Calvinist preacher-father. (Mr Schaeffer Jr. doesn't like what he calls "conservative Christians".) In answer to Maddow's question about references to Nazism by protesters having the possibility of leading to violence, Schaeffer took the ball and ran two football fields with it. As his voice became angrier and his eyes widened, Schaeffer told a somberly-concerned Maddow that mentioning Hitler was like "leaving a loaded gun" on the table and encouraging someone to pick it up. He then went on to give a litany of all the conservative boogey-men he could think of, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Dick Armey, the killers of Dr Tiller, anti-abortionists, insurance companies, opponents of Sonia Sotomayor, Fox News, the guy who killed Martin Luther King, "angry middle-aged white men", "bad Americans".....

Hey! Don't take my word for it. Watch it yourself.

You might also note that in Maddow's accompanying video clip of the melee in Tampa this week, she inadvertently showed the scene where one of the union goons (straight out of Central Casting, no less) puts a choke-hold on an anti-government health care protester who wanted to be admitted into the town hall meeting. (Watch the guy in the green shirt as "Sluggo" pushes him into a corner with a choke-hold.)

To sum up, Maddow and Schaeffer's thesis was that right-wing, racist protesters were using Nazi/Hitler references to suggest in "coded messages" that someone should go out and kill President Obama, which is a ridiculous and totally false suggestion. But this is what passes for journalism on MSNBC.

(* Why do I call Maddow a Tim Geithner look-a-like? Don't take my word for it. See for yourself.)

(I think Geithner is the one wearing a tie.)

So it appears that the Administration, the Democratic Party, and their servants in the news media are going after Americans who don't support their health care take-over. We are racists. We are "Birthers". We are "bad Americans".

And to President Obama, thank your, Sir, for "bringing us together".


  1. I really don't know where to start with that whack-job. But I'll take a swing at it. He is pissed at his Christian Preacher father for telling him that bad people should be spanked. This guy probably got a belt regularly and often.

    So he has run as far from Judeo-Christian principles as he can and then turned around and calls such people "un-American".

    I do agree with a couple things he said. First, I agree that Barry will win the day with this Healthcare bill. His cult following of Marxists in Congress is too strong. And lastly I agree that there will indeed be violence greater than the scuffles currently instigated by the Acorn and Union thugs that have heretofore come.

    Folks, the long and the short of it is this: We are in a political place not seen since 1773. Like those first warriors for freedom we are going to be forced into a decision between shutting up and taking whatever the all-powerful government wants us to have, or fight back and be labeled a seditionist, rebel, criminal, and traitor.

    This is not a call to arms(Although that may come at some point). This is an analysis based on current events and our government's response to our rejections of its policies. The real decision that we all have to make is, are we as a nation capable of letting our Founders dreams live on through us, or are we to be the last of the Free Americans. Will my teenage children live to resent being in a totalitarian America.

  2. I'd also like to say thank you to Mr. Obama for being *MY* "president," too, even though I didn't vote for him.

  3. Greywolfe,
    I see this as a call to arms and for all I know they will be knocking at my door tomorrow. Maybe we are the last of Free Americans but my children will be the same as I am.
    My daughter is 17 and was
    so in the tank for Obuma. Not so anymore and as I told her after the election, the real Obuma will come out along with all his traitorous friends from Moveon, like Pelosi, Reid and other villians of the left.

    I am a Constitutionalist.
    The Founding Fathers had
    it right. I will be until I
    draw breath no more.
    But the war is far from over.
    In fact it is just really
    getting started.
