The hysterical Left has hit a new low of silliness. And you thought that was impossible. 🙂
ObamaCare is now not only a “Civil Right” it is also “Unconstitutional” and will kill people if we repeal it!
OH NO!! THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING!!
Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX): Arguing that the Commerce Clause provides the constitutional basis for ObamaCare, Jackson Lee said repealing the law by passing Republicans’ H.R. 2 violates both the Fifth Amendment’s right to due process and the Fourteenth Amendment’s equal protection clause.
“The Fifth Amendment speaks specifically to denying someone their life and liberty without due process,” she said in a speech on the House floor moments ago. “That is what H.R. 2 does and I rise in opposition to it. And I rise in opposition because it is important that we preserve lives and we recognize that 40 million-plus are uninsured.”
“Can you tell me what’s more unconstitutional than taking away from the people of America their Fifth Amendment rights, their Fourteenth Amendment rights, and the right to equal protection under the law?”
House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn called health-care reform “the Civil Rights Act of the 21st century”
So it’s a Civil Right now!! And we all know what taking away civil rights means?
YOU’RE A RACIST!! 🙂
You are guaranteed the right to have the government Mandate you must buy Health Insurance or you will be fined by the IRS!!
It’s a Civil Right for the Government to decide who lives and who dies! And whether your life is of sufficient “benefit” to society!
It’s Unconstitutional for you to be responsible for your own life. The Democrats have to run it for you!!
To paraphrase our new favorite whacko Leftist, Rep. Cohen and his friend Josef Goebbels tell a lie often enough and people will start to believe it:
Hmmmmmmm..you mean like; “Global Warming is caused by man”? Or maybe ” Obamacare will lower insurance costs”? or “reduce the deficit” Or how about, ” We will have the most Transparent Congress ever”? and Let’s Not forget “If you like your doctor , you can keep your doctor”
And the all-time champ, the Health Care Mandate is “not a tax” but it is always defended by the Commerce Clause which means it’s a TAX! 🙂
“I guess they don’t advance civility per se, but I believe telling lies is uncivil. I think somebody needs to stand up to the lies that are being told.”– Rep Cohen.
And speaking of our favourite Whacko in Congress, he just can’t stop himself. Like most of the extreme Left who just can’t control their urges, The Nazi references come first, so what’s next in line: THE KKK.
Also in the interview Cohen stood by equally uncivil remarks he made last April when he compared the Tea Party to the KKK. (“The tea party people are kind of without robes and hoods. They have really shown a very hardcore angry side of America that is against any type of diversity. We saw opposition to African-Americans, hostility towards gays, hostility towards anyone who, you know, just wasn’t a clone of George Wallace’s fan club.”) He said the two movements arose from similar circumstances because both wanted “their power back.”
Rep. Cohen on Anderson Cooper 360 (CNN): “There were people who were out of power and they wanted their power back. The Klan after the Civil War was upset that the African Americans had been given the right to vote and many of them were in office and they didn’t like it. And they wanted to form to get back their own government. They wanted to take back their government. And the Tea Party feels like they are out of power with President Obama, that’s where they started, and they want to take back their government. Now without robes and hoods they’re not out doing things like the Klan did, but they got formed the same kind of way. They were people who had been disposed from being the power group and wanted to take it back.”
The Democrats from 1996 to 2008 when they were “out of power” are exempted of course!! 🙂
Cooper rebutted, “You can compare them to any populist movement, comparing them to the KKK seems incendiary. It seems deeply offense to hundreds of thousands of people who are in the Tea Party”
Like Rep. Cohen cares! He wants to repeat his lies often enough so you’ll believe them!
And don’t tell him that the Republican Party was born as an anti-slavery party and that the KKK was mostly Southern DEMOCRATS.
Oh no! Facts are holy water to Liberal vampires who just want to perpetuate their uncivil hatred of those who oppose their greatness.
“I won’t say it again, but I was right,” he said. -Rep Cohen
You just can’t make this stuff up.
Rep. John Lewis (D-GA): “Well, when you start off with the Preamble of the Constitution, you talk about the pursuit of happiness,” said Lewis. “You go to the 14th Amendment–it’s equal protection under the law and we have not repealed the 14th Amendment. People have a right to have health care. It’s not a privilege but a right.”
The Preamble of the Constitution states, “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
IT IS NOT IN THE CONSTITUTION YOU LOON! (anyone seeing the 14th Amendment talking point yet, BTW?)
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
It is the preamble to THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE!
But I’m sure we have “misquoted” him. 🙂
Then he trotted out the thouroughly ridiculous “well you are required to have auto insurance” canard too!
That was thoroughly discredited by me over a year ago in 1 sentence!
If you don’t have a car, you don’t need or are required by law to have auto insurance!
But truth,facts, and lies never stop the LEFT from trying to perpetuate itself and insinuate itself in every aspect of your life and tell you they can do it better than you and if you don’t believe them, well, they’ll just force it on you for your own good.
So just keep repeating it to yourself until you believe it.
Now don’t you feel better! 🙂
