So I haven’t been blogging much or actually doing much on the internet in awhile. I also have been deliberately ignoring current events, I’m trying to unplug a little. But as I’m slowly getting back into it, I have been seeing the clips from these town-halls and I have observed several things that I have to admit are just crazy. No sane person can look at these clips or read what is going on and not see the madness. Think about it: One side is stating that all Americans should have healthcare and the other is basically saying no. Each have ideas on the best way to fix the healthcare issue and disagree with one another and instead of an actual debate there’s ranting and raving, screaming, and all kinds of overtones.
I was watching Rick Sanchez on CNN and there was a clip of people holding signs of Obama made to look like Adolf Hitler and a women said to a Jewish guy who supports national healthcare “Heil Hitler”.
Many people don’t like it and many more may not admit it, but this thing has racial overtones. It just seems to me that the election of 2008 isn’t finished yet in the minds of the majority caucasion Republican base. Whenever Obama tries to do some kind of reform remember he’s only been in office 8 months, white Republicans start getting angry and start with the socialist, nazi, Hitler, garbage. Remember the tea parties?
I’m sorry but just last summer this same crowd was at town-halls ranting and raving against Obama as well. The subject changes, the actions and responses are exactly the same.
Why do I see racial overtones?
Well because the arguments put forward are stupid. They are so stupid that it’s obvious they are a cover for something else.
Socialism? I didn’t see these same people protesting Bush when he bailed out wallstreet in 2008. No nazi signs, no socialism, no Hitler. No one protests medicare, police service, fire service, etc. etc. etc. in this manner.
I’m sorry I don’t buy it. This bill isn’t even written, there are a bunch of drafts out there, but no static bill, and people are just foaming at the mouth mad. I think that if Obama wanted to pass a bill proclaiming the sky was blue, the same group would be doing the same things to protest that.
The fact is, they never got over the fact that Obama won. They aren’t ready to leave the “old ways”.
Who in their right mind would be opposed to ensuring that all Americans have access to affordable health care? Many of these people claim to be Christians but talk the way they talk and act the way they act, and seem to forget that there very own Bible states that Jesus (as) called the least of the people his brethren.
I guess when your President and the majority of the 47 million who happen to be uninsured just so happen to look different from you, there’s no reason to care about them and to be opposed to anything that would help them, you know the least of the people….
