There is nothing quite like sexual brutality and fear to scare people to death.
In this TV ad a lecherous, sadistic, evil Uncle Sam substitutes himself for the doctors for a young women’s gynecological exam and a young man’s annual prostate exam. This is the definition of demagoguery. When and where will the Right Wing stop? The actual name for “Obamacare” is The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. It was enacted by Congress after many compromises. Demagoguery is leading the populace, in this case the American public, by appealing to prejudices and emotions.
I’m sure they want another year of us waiting for the bulk of the healthcare reforms so that these kinds of lies can reach and scare many more people. How can they insist with straight faces that the president is the one being stubborn about the budget? This whole ‘fight’ reminds me of McCarthyism, too.
Sparks, thanks for coming by. Love your comment. We must be of the same era.
Well, I like that you said it. I don’t like the horrifying truth of your point.
This is demagoguery at its worst, Mona. Shame on them. Shame. Shame. Shame. I’m going to post videos of Joseph Welsh’s great moment of exposing Sen. Joseph McCarthy’s demagoguery and Edward R. Murrow’s editorial that turned the tide of public opinion against McCarthy’s tactics.
