Even in the face of its utter failure and destruction, some of the most zealous Obama fans have continued to cling to the notion that Obamacare is really just a major success. And if you don’t agree, then you’re obviously a racist who condones slavery. I was truly amazed to see such statements when skimming through the comments on the recent CNN article detailing the House decision to extend healthcare plans through 2014 that would have otherwise been canceled by the completely failed Obamacare standards.
The top comment for example, which is featured prominently at the top of the CNN article, says that those who don’t want to lose their plans under Obamacare are simply racists who want to see Obama and his family be ‘slaves again’. Overall, it reads like a very poorly written MSNBC teleprompter script of some kind:
Amazingly, ‘suzie669’ is among a small crowd of Obama fans who really do seem to think that anyone who is against Obamacare (which now includes large numbers from the democratic party and 55% of the entire nation according to polls) is entirely racist. It can’t possible be due to anything else. We find a slew of such comments in response to an article on The Nation entitled ‘Racism and Cruelty: What’s Behind the GOP’s Healthcare Agenda?’, where the readers continue to assert that opposition to the bill really comes down to racism:
Taking a stand against paying more into a failed system also apparently signifies that the ‘reign of the white man is over’, and that is why citizens of all races and creeds are now against it:
But what about the facts? What about the reality that the entire Obamacare system, from the actual website disaster to major hospitals suing over the threat to children’s health posed by the legislation? Well, according to another Obama fanatic, that is simply the fault of the conservatives. The CNN reader says that because conservatives kept saying that Obamacare wouldn’t work even before it was implemented, that’s what actually happened. If they had instead bowed down to Obama, then everything would quite simply be fine, it appears:
As you are likely aware, I am not a member of the Democratic or Republican party. Instead, I am a member of the ‘third party of Reality’, which is guided by seeking the truth on a grand scale that supercedes left vs. right political sabotage. And as many Americans are now realizing, it truly is only the Obama fanatics that are still clinging to the sad promise of Obamacare.
