Republican Right Silent on Real Arizona Health Care Death Panel
Charles Grassley led the propaganda charge when it came to accusing
the Obama Administration of intending to create a health care death
It is interesting to observe the stony silence of the senator from
Iowa as well as that of his colleagues when a very real death panel
has reared its ugly head in Arizona.
The high octane fuel that the Republican right runs on is propaganda
and with it the concomitant byproduct of hypocrisy. The name of the
game is to keep accusations toward the opposition spinning while
maintaining a bogus holier than thou attitude.
Such was the case with scores of issues designed to appeal to the pro-
life religious right base. One of the most heinous examples in recent
memory was the conduct of the Bush brothers in the Terry Schiavo
tragedy. A loving husband, insisting that he was carrying out his
wife's expressed wish, sought to bring a comatose life with no
prospect of recovery to a humane end.
Here is where the Republican right wing propaganda stream kicks into
high gear. Given the selected group's training, the religious right's
indoctrination into watching Fox News has sufficiently programmed the
Hence the scientific fact that the most eminent medical minds in the
country examined Terry Schiavo's file and concluded that her condition
was irreversible was ignored as the Bush brothers pointed to one
opinion from a doctor who was not a specialist in the designated field
and had not even studied Schiavo's file.
The docile force of the indoctrinated accepted the opinion of the non-
specialist and the Bush brothers. The accepted position is comparable
to that of the indoctrinated right faithfully accepting Rush
Limbaugh's position on global warming in the face of an opposite
conclusion having been reached by 46 Nobel Prize science laureates and
numerous other leading scientific minds.
Senator Grassley engaged in demagogic spin control, ever mindful of
appealing to one of the party's leading constituencies, with his
comment about an Obama death panel letting "granny" perish. The
tragedy about the Obama health care plan was totally different, not
providing a public option as a competitive alternative to health care
corporation price gouging and ongoing monopoly. With the Republicans
now set to control the House the plan Obama cobbled together and
presented as a compromise may be scrapped. ... (cont)
Does the guy ever get to a point?
Whatever it is, it must be pretty weak if he's got to blather on and
on about Schiavo, Limbaugh, the hoax of global warming before getting
Perhaps you can cut and past the last page instead of the first when
you're posting these type of liberal opinions?
What you mean is, you are gobsmacked and your mouth is on automatic. lol
