Sebelius Compares O-Care Opponents To Lynchers

From National Review:

Sebelius Likens Obamacare Opponents to Segregationists

By Andrew Johnson | July 22, 2013

Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius is likening opponents of the Affordable Care Act to opponents of desegregation. “What we heard back then is what we’re hearing now, the same arguments against change, the same fear and misinformation that opponents used are the ones opponents are spreading now,” she said last week in a speech before the NAACP.

Sebelius also tried to drew similarities between the creation of Medicare and Medicaid and the enactment of civil-rights legislation from the same era, and urged the audience to be ready to do “the kind of work” on Obamacare that the NAACP “has done for more than a century to move us forward.”

“You showed it in the early fights against lynching and the fight for desegregation . . . you showed it by supporting a health law 100 years in the making,” she said.

So if you oppose Obama-Care you support lynching and segregation. Even though both of those practices were done exclusively by Democrats.

The Health and Human Services secretary also heralded “the voices of progress” that will mark the October 1 date on which the law’s health-care exchanges open, comparing the event to the Emancipation Proclamation. “They echo from church bells rung at midnight 150 years ago to educate our nation of a people’s emancipation,” she said.

Yes, we will be freed from the ‘slavery’ of our old health insurance plans, and being able to choose our own doctors.

Oh, and never mind that the emancipation of the slaves was done by Republicans. And never mind that the NAACP was also started by Republicans. Those are just minor details that I suspect neither she nor her audience would even know.

The important thing, when talking to a black audience, is to demonize your (perceived) enemies with the most vilest things you can say about them.

    Well, at least she isn’t calling us Nazis… yet.

    I wonder where in the O-Care law it enunciates the benefits of the gas chamber for older more useless Americans. Isn’t Sebelius the one who said, “Some people are going to die, that’s just the way it is.”?

    Oh dear. Sebelius, you need to watch your language, dear. History and all.

    Affordable health care is a joke and also neither affordable or health care.
    I truly loathe and wish ill things to the punks.

      I spend an inordinate amount of my prayers asking for forgiveness for the thoughts and fantasies I have about leftists. I’m ashamed that I’ve allowed them this much sway over my emotions.

      These people are lighting a fuse to an explosion that they believe they can control but is going to turn out to be Atomic.
