Wanna know you when can tell the Hysterical, Fear-Mongering, Chicken-Little, “Grandma will die Homeless on the street and the kids will be eating dog food” Left Has returned and will be celebrated by the Liberal Media??
We have our first Nazi reference by the Left! 🙂
Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen is comparing Republicans who he says lie about health care to Nazis. Remember all the talk of toning down the rhetoric? Apparently that was soooo last week.
Speaking late Tuesday night, before Wednesday’s vote to repeal health care reform legislation, Cohen said “They say it’s a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels. You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually, people believe it. Like blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing. The Germans said enough about the Jews and people believed it — believed it and you have the Holocaust. We heard on this floor, government takeover of health care…the biggest lie of 2010 was a government takeover of health care because there is no government takeover.”
So Armageddon cometh again!
It just took a two year break while the Democrats were in control. 🙂
The reference to Nazis was roundly criticized on Wednesday, with repeated references to recent calls for more civil discourse. But reached by The Washington Post, Cohen said “I don’t think calling out liars is uncivil. No reason to apologize. You have a duty to respond. if they were telling the truth and I said they were lying, then I would apologize.” (Nashville Biz Journal)
Now that’s toning down your rhetoric! 🙂
Wanna see more hate: CNN’s Anderson Cooper ran a blog during his show yesterday and the “respectful” Left was out in force. It’s entertaining to a cynic.
One reader comment on ABCNews website proposed this defense of the Congressman:
Did you read it/ Did you listen to his speech? There was no hate speech.
Also, why does the author of this article misquote the Representative?
Meanwhile a VIDEO of the Congressman saying EXACTLY what was quoted is running on the same page!!
Now that’s the Left for you! Hysterical. 🙂
“I want to just advise people watching at home playing the now-popular drinking game, if you take a shot whenever the Republicans say something that’s not true, please assign a designated driver,” Rep. Anthony (The Whiner) Weiner (D-N.Y.) said.
Funny how the “new tone” sounds just like the hysterical old tone? Funny That.
And expect it to get MUCH,MUCH,MUCH worse as the 2012 elections get closer.
It’s going to be 24/7 Armageddon 2.0.
Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes…
The dead rising from the grave!
Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!
(to quote “Ghostbusters!”) 🙂
Just watch and be mesmerized! 🙂
Brit Hume- Fox News: “That House vote to repeal Obamacare will have little legislative effects since there is virtually no chance the repeal will become law,” Hume said. “But, it will have political significance as a demonstration to the continuing resistance to the program. The repeal passed the House by far larger margin than the bill itself did when it was rammed through last March. In a sense it becomes a race against time.”
That race against time, as he explained, is one that will have to show progress made in dealing with the legislation before people adapt and it becomes a third-rail issue.
“That’s because once a sweeping set of government policies is put in place, Americans begin to adapt. They come to depend on whatever benefits the program provides, and they learn to live with burdens that it imposes. Businesses factor in the reality of their plan and change procedures accordingly. Once that process is completed, it is more difficult to undo the law. It may have been highly disruptive when it passed, but after a while repealing it becomes disruptive as well. And with billions in insurance subsidiaries flowing to millions of people, Obamacare could become politically untouchable, but it will be years before Obamacare is fully in effect. By that time, it should be clear that the bill does almost nothing to reduce the cost of health care, plus the mandate forcing everyone to buy health insurance, whether they want it or not, could make the measure more unpopular than it is now. And there is no uncertainty that mandate will be upheld by the courts. So in short, it’s clear time is a factor in this struggle but not so clear whose side time is on,” he said.
In the end, he admitted the bill will change the American health care system, but does nothing to “bend the cost curve.”
“I think we will be legislating this issue of health care and health care reform for years to come as partly because the bill does nothing to address the cost question,” he added. “And my sense is that when it’s all said and done, we will have a health care system that doesn’t look like the old one, but doesn’t look very much like this one either.”
