Hysteria Swamps Conservative Groups’s Health Care Reform Reactions

From the Family Research Council to Concerned Women for America, conservative hate groups are releasing their guttural reactions to last night’s health care vote. They are ridiculous, but our favorite comes from the Christian Defense Coalition: “We are confident this will have a powerful impact on Catholic and Evangelical voters this November. After the defeat of the Alamo, a powerful cry was heard across the nation which has inspired Americans for generations. That cry was, ‘Remember the Alamo!’” Sorry, THE ALAMO?!

    Problem is that the Dems allowed the repugnicans to get way out in front of this debacle and very few people are now able to separate the fact from the fiction……….

    ^^^abosolutely. The reality is most of these people on the right don’t seek out the truth. It seems they are trained from an early age to just blindly follow a leader, priest, deacon, pastor, commentator, whatever, and just believe any and everything they say without searching for facts on their own and discovering what’s really going on.

  • romeo

    The facts will be on the ground when the actual benefits go into effect and are used. As poll after poll showed, most people wanted healthcare reform, and they will like it once they see the effects on their own lives.

    That’s why repubs have gotten so hysterical.

  • delurker

    This is the problem with Republican lies. When people start to see 6 months from now that grandma is not sitting before a death panel, health care is not being rationed, and Barney Frank is not personally doing your colonoscopy, they’ll know that the Republicans are all about theatrics and hysteria have precious little regard for the truth.

    The teabagger/wingnut/Talibangelical meltdown I am seeing in response to HCR reform is worth the price of admission.

  • jeffree

    The republicans who placed their entire reputation on NO healthcare reform now look like backsliders. their hope to score a moral victory fighting versus more health coverage looks just plain mean & stupid.

    Once people realize that *more* uninsurred people can get to a doctor BEFORE something makes them need to go to emergency rooms (which is very expensive) & that their kids in their 20s will be covered under their own insurance when they werent before, they will figure out that the health reforms are good, not bad,

    The republicans who just said NO NO NO look bad now, dont they???

    The teaparty people scored MAJOR FAIL here but that wont shut them up & that makes them look worse & worst.

    @Chitown Kev:

    My sentiments exactly.
    Watching privileged right-wingers go ballistic when they don’t get their way is the icing on the cake.

    I am just hoping they don’t start calling for insurrection, or that some wingnut does something truly illegal; that was highest on my mind when I heard about the decision.

    It’s funny how those who wrap themselves in the flag are the quickest to reject democracy when its doesn’t go their way.

    Really? They’re typing themselves to the Catholic Church right now…when it is in the middle of ANOTHER massive child rape and abuse scandal in Brazil, Germany, Ireland, Austria, AND Holland? Not really sure thats attention they should be calling to themselves.

  • Mr. Enemabag Jones

    Last night on the news, they showed a clip of a protestor, who said this:

    This is not how America is; we don’t help people who don’t have money, we help ourselves.

    Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do. Amen.

  • jeffree

    @Chitown Kev: that’s because their entire political future depended on health reform NOT happening! I strongly predict that there will be “in fighting” with the repubs & casting of stones, blame & much name calling 2! This anti health reform buisiness has been their main focus & now theyre like strippers after a party screaming “WHERE oh where did my clothes go!!!”

    @delurker: Yeesh, did ya have to put Barney Frank & colonoscopy in the same sentence!?? lol!
    i am TRYING to eat lunch !!

  • romeo

    @Jeffree: LOVE the stripper analogy. :D

  • strumpetwindsock

    Where were these freaks when Bush handed all that money over to big business?

    ..oddly enough this guy’s statement read very true in my mind.

  • Mr. Enemabag Jones


    ..oddly enough this guy’s statement read very true in my mind.

    Which is why you’re a douchebag.

  • delurker

    @jamison: Meanwhile, that little kid’s grandparents are on Medicare and will fight like hell if someone tries to take it away. Yaaawn.

  • delurker

    oops. where did i get he was a little kid? my bad. but the point still stands.

  • jeffree

    When people say that they dont want the government involved in health care, just ask them if they plan to go without Medicare when they retire!! They conveniantly FORGET it’s a gov’t program.

    Members of congress have the best healthplan of anyone except POTUS and VPOTUS. I didnt see anyone suggesting that plan gets open to everyone !

  • Wade MacMorrighan

    How is it that these so-called “Christian”-groups are behaving so un-Christian in terms of civil law and seeking Universal healthcare for their fellow human beings?! What’s psychologically WRONG with them?

  • Lincoln Rose

    As a disabled guy now on Medicare (or caid, I can’t keep them separated) who, before that, went without health insurance for 9 years except for an 8 month stint through an employer, there are only a few things I can assume to make this make sense:

    1) None of these Teabaggers have any chronic health problems that require random hospitalization or medications that cost more than $10.

    2) None of their children or anyone else in their family is similarly afflicted.

    3) They’ve never had to watch anyone they care about die from something they couldn’t afford to cure.

    4) They have never had to choose between taking time off work to take care of a sick child or losing needed income for that month.

    I have had all of these things go on in my life, and all I can say is:
