The Rage and Fury of Millions of Ordinary Rightists...water cooler, talk radio, etc

Did anyone listen AM talk radio today? It was thrilling to hear Rush, Hanninty, and Beck freaking out and melting down. They were talking about "the death of America", "the nd of the republic"...talking as if it were 1938 and the tanks had just rolled into Poland.

Now it's easy to dismiss Beck and company as nut-jobs and propagandists for the rich, but what about all the water cooler talk at workplaces today? My job takes me into several different companies per day, and everywhere I heard many people outraged that this "horrible tyranny" had been "slammed down on the American people".

And people who I consider pretty much "regular", "normal", "adjusted", (but politically misguided) people were talking about uprisings, including not subtle hints at extreme violence.


How can this be? Is it simply extremely effective propaganda? It has reached even those who do not watch Fox news or listen to talk radio.

Can anyone explain this mass popular uprising against what should be (and what was, according to many polls) a widely popular idea?Not propaganda, just the truth.

But I thought EVERYONE except the extreme right wingers WANTED this bill to pass? You mean it's not true? Now, think November.

1. Yes it's called Racism. You have any more questions?not wanting socialist health care = racism. Even true racism is beginning to mean nothing because of this hysterical reaction by Obama and Democrats.

3. What is so much of an outrage that has been slammed on people.

The government does not control anything. The set up regulations. these regulations benefit people and not insurance companies.

So giving children insurance and not being able to disqualify them because of pre-existing conditions is slamming the American People. Letting people carry their children on their insurance til they are 26 years old is slamming the American people. Letting real American public buy health insurance ..IF THEY DON'T HAVE ANY BECAUSE OF THE COST AND INSURANCE COMPANIES DENYING IT is slamming the American People.

We see were these people are the zombies that have their ears glued to rush and fox because they are the type of spewings of all this misinformation.Many, many more of us aren't going to have health insurance/health care because we can't afford the higher costs, and the rest are going to have lousy health care-even those that now get adequate free care from hospitals-because they are going to get health care subsidized for them.

In other words Democrats health care decreases the quality of care for everyone except the politicians, union heads, and wealthy who can pay for it out of pocket here in the US or another country.

Republican plans cost less, insure the poor and don't decrease the quality of health care.

5. It's called white entitlement. We honkies are freaking out. Updated at 5:09 PM

My parents live in socal, so they hate Mexicans. Us honkies hate different people, depending on where you live. Republicans talk about quality of care, cost and the most effective and efficient us of money to get more people covered.

Liberals talk about racism.

Liberals can call us whatever they like I don't really care. We know who they are and what they have done, their time will come.

I think that many Conservatives/Repubs are in a state of shock and disbelief. People are mad that Obummer and liberal democrats have dredged us thru a sewer of debt along with their socialistic policies. I don't think that translates into violence; it could happen in the future but I sure hope not.

The Dummies have won a battle but the war is far from over. The Repubs need to take over one or both houses in Nov. Since Congress appropriates, Obummer's spending spree can be cut off at the knees including any funds to implement this health care bill. An agency to administer the program could be denied approval and funding by Repubs.

What the DUmmies don't realize is that when you have to pull the race card in an argument about public policy, you don't have an argument to make.

...and when that cost starts spiralling, as the companies are forced to insure people they normally wouldnt under risk parameters?...the equivalent is forcing a car insurance co to give insurance over $20,000, to a convicted drunk driver.

Watch them start screaming when the price goes up...and up...and premiums get higher...and companies start to fold and more people are unemployed....

Coming soon.

Oh, you mean kind of like how you DUmmies reacted and the things you said regarding the 2000 election, the 2004 election, the passage of the Patriot Act, the passage of Prop 8, the passage of the 2003 ban on partial- birth abortion, and even Scott Brown's election?
The DUmmies wrote the book on paranoid doomsday ramblings at times when they had a hell of a lot less to worry about than the American people as a whole now have to worry about now that this health care plan has been passed.

Once again the Moonbats aren't listening to anything but the drama playing in their head.

The American people are now pissed off and the Moonbats are too crazy/stupid to figure it out :rolleyes:

You forgot global warming.

Seriously, this one caught me as funny:

My job takes me into several different companies per day, and everywhere I heard many people outraged that this "horrible tyranny" had been "slammed down on the American people".
This idiot is too wrapped up in his little socialistic world to understand that a majority of Americans did not want this legislation and now, at different places they go, people are outraged and this dope is surprised? Talk about not seeing the forest through the trees.


And people who I consider pretty much "regular", "normal", "adjusted", (but politically misguided) people were talking about uprisings, including not subtle hints at extreme violence.
The only rational thing this person wrote because it's how some of feel about the liberals we know. However, the uprising that I keep hearing about isn't armed but at the polls come November. This idiot is to stupid and buy into the conservative stereotype(according to liberals) to know what a metaphor is.


How can this be? Is it simply extremely effective propaganda? It has reached even those who do not watch Fox news or listen to talk radio.
Again, what a joke this person is. He can't wrap his little BB brain around the fact that people can read and listen to politicians talk and form conclusions on their own. In fact, it seems as though this little BB brain is the one who is buying into propaganda.


Can anyone explain this mass popular uprising against what should be (and what was, according to many polls) a widely popular idea?
"Many polls"?! WTF? According to Real Clear Politics (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/obama_and_democrats_health_care_plan-1130.html)(who post several polls), every single poll this month had a majority against. Every. The RCP average was 39.7 for and 50.2 against. The closest poll was the Democratic leaning polls, Public Policy, Gallup, and AP but the rest are all double digit against. Even CNN was at +20 against. Again, a lefty only listens to what the left tells him. Typical.

Because it was not in ANY POSSIBLE WAY a popular idea. It was Despised and it spawned a HUGE movement that sent millions of previously apolitical citizens to protest.

People tend to know when their freedoms are being killed.

Also, this is where liberals and conservatives differ. To a conservative, it's more about doing what's right and not what's popular. Scapegoating the Jews was wildly popular in 1930's Germany and we all can agree that it wasn't right. And no matter how popular robbing Peter to pay Paul is, it's still wrong. But as Jim Rohn said, "When you steal from Peter and give to Paul, you will always have the support of Paul."
