ST. PETERSBURG — A prominent St. Petersburg doctor and conservative activist has drawn a flood of criticism for e-mailing an image depicting President Barack Obama as a witch doctor with a loin cloth, exotic headdress and bones in his nose.

"ObamaCare, coming soon to a clinic near you,'' reads the caption on the e-mail forwarded earlier this week by St. Petersburg neurosurgeon David McKalip.

Several popular liberal blogs, including Talking Points Memo, Huffington Post and Daily Kos, highlighted McKalip's e-mail Thursday and castigated him for racism. McKalip said he was flooded with calls from people attacking him over the e-mail, which he said he had forwarded to "a limited group" of about 150 people.

Photo is apt and very very accurate.

Obamacare will reduce health services to that level.

Very telling.

Getting bored.

He sent this picture around via email.....

"This image was sent by David McKalip, a Florida neurosurgeon:

who serves as a member of the American Medical Association’s House of Delegates… He’s the chair of the Florida Taxpayers Union, the founder of Doctors For Patient Freedom, an anti-health-care-reform group, the president of the Florida Neurological Society, and an all-around anti-government activist.

He’s also an energetic conservative opponent of health-care reform. McKalip founded the anti-reform group Doctors For Patient Freedom, as well as what seems to be a now defunct group called Cut Taxes Now. Last month he joined GOP congressmen Tom Price and Phil Gingrey, among others, for a virtual town hall to warn about the coming “government takeover of medicine.” And in a recent anti-reform op-ed published in the St. Petersburg Times, McKalip wrote that “Congress wants to create larger, government-funded programs for health care and more bureaucracy that ration care and impose cookbook medicine. [via TPM & Gawker]

The photo features a photoshopped picture of Obama on the body of an African tribesmen with a hammer and sickle replacing the C in Obama Care."

It's clear that they are going to spin this so as to say the picture is about race - rather than about WITCH DOCTORY - which any thinking person can see that that is the heart of the criticism.

How is this racist? I read it as "government health care = witch doctor care". Since the witch doctor is obviously a sub-saharan black African and Obama himself is half sub-saharan black African, I don't see where the racism part comes in.

If you photoshoped a kilt on a white politican to make a point about being stingy that wouldn't be racist - it would just annoy the Scots. :confused:

Or consider this-what if you correctly use the non-racial term Niggardly... (http://www.adversity.net/special/niggardly.htm) That's a firin' in our ignorant society. Everything just has to be racist.

Oh, I get it...Barack's father is from Africa so that makes any kind of legislation that he would implement a form of witch doctoring.

Let's instead look at the hundreds of people who are dying because they don't have access to affordable health care. More die each year due to lack of health care than died in 9-11. I bet that people reading this forum can't afford good healthcare and are just barely covered my Medicare.

The best way to be patriotic? Care about your fellow Americans: black or white. Heck, just care about yourself and you should be for health care reform.

Well, I just paid my 35 dollar copay, got tests run, got my medicine for 16 bucks and am sitting here waiting for it to kick in. If folks can't afford insurance, it ain't my problem. I worry about me and my own first.

Wow you have lots of emotion based talking points - got any facts to back up these claims? I'd like some evidence that people die because they don't have health insurance.

Hey socialist, I don't give a shit about you or whether you have health care. You want it, you buy it, quit being a worthless sponge on society.

It was a good picture though. It pissed him off enough so he joined. That makes me happy
