Robert Scheer: War on Obamacare racism-based

Text Size: A | A

Before he was disgraced into resigning his presidency over the Watergate burglary scandal, Richard Nixon had successfully engineered an even more odious plot known as his Southern Strategy. The trick was devilishly simple: Appeal to the persistent racist inclination of Southern whites by abandoning the Republican Party’s historic association with civil rights and demonizing the black victims of the South’s history of segregation. That same divisive strategy is at work in the Republican rejection of ...

What a pile of pure crap. Your idiot party hurts blacks on a daily bases. People could afford health care if they had jobs, but you Democrats have been destroying them at record pace. The ACA was a lie is a lie and will be a financial disaster for this country. Like most of the lefts loser ideas, when this one fails you'll be barking that all it needs is more money more money. Blacks are on the Democrats plantation not the Republicans, so you can shove your racism crap.

And whatever you said after 'Your idiot party hurts blacks..." doesn't amount to a hill 'o beans to most adults.

Obamacare is opposed by anyone that can do basic math. Black, white or green. The funding is not in place and the numbers never add up. Some of us are not thrilled by tripling our health insurance rates.

ChuckD, The reason it wont matter to anyone in your party is adults are far and few between. The use of racism by you liberals is simply to garner votes. Nothing more nothing less. Oppose any liberal crackpot idea and your a racist. Its your constant cry of racism that doesn't amount to a hill of beans!

89% of the Republican Party are non-Hispanic whites.
Your 800 pound gorilla.

ChuckD, common sense is something that appears to avoid you like the plague. Your party excoriates any black that dares to leave the plantation and join the Republican party and you cite that as proof of racism. You steal money from working men and women and hold it out like candy to buy memberships. You destroy jobs to ensure your members are dependent on your handouts. You offer nothing to minorities other then handouts, Their fear of losing the goodies is the only reason your messiah won a second term. Rip the 89% as hard as you want, they're the ones paying for all you lefty free loaders.

Any time when a liberal like ChuckD opens his mouth fecal matter dribbles out. No where in his postings does any form of sense emerge to try and defend his lame position(s), instead there is stupid idiotic ideological lack of logic that comes forth. In his useless rants of idiocy comes to the forefront his parties philosophy of the way America should be. The only thing he has to offer are the usual rhetoric of calling people names to try employ some white guilt in an effort to silence debate and/or opinion. The old saying goes, "out of the mouths of fools and babes comes pearls of honesty and wisdom," but in ChuckD's case neither is evident in his case. More like foolishness. Like the other idiots who write postings I am still waiting with baited breath for him and his nit wit buds on the left to actually offer something that is worth debating. Instead these people live in Disney Land with their liberal ideology...
