The mainstream and right wing fringe media have nothing better to do to try and keep ratings up, apparently, than to report, with pseudo-seriousness, on the lunatic ravings of the children in grown-up bodies re-enacting the Lord of the Flies at town hall meetings across the country, where some actual adults are trying to discuss health care.
I have said this and written it on this blog numerous times: RACISM IS A PSYCHIATRIC DISORDER!
And make no mistake - this is about race!
Health care reform is exactly meant to help the very Deliverance-type, rural, uneducated people that are donning Confederate caps and sporting neo-Nazi tatoos at the town halls, shouting down anyone and everyone they can. But the fear in these infant souls of a man with a different skin color is so great that it's a snap for the snakes and thieves and con artists of the tattered Republican Party to prey on them and let them make fools of themselves on national television.
Barack Obama is not white. And that scares the living crap out of these beer-bellied, red-neck illiterates. Think about it. Hating a skin color?! Why? Because the night is dark, and it's at night when the kids have nightmares? Really. Think about it. How disturbed do you have to be to hate someone because of their color?!
Health care reform is a given, folks. And the demise of the Republican Party is also a given. These are the death throws of a retrogressive era whose time has passed. This isn't a pendulum swing, this is a quantum, paradigm shift.
"After all, we aren't savages really." (William Golding, "Lord of the Flies," Ch. 11)
