The Democrats can’t say they weren’t warned:
But that’s not how they view/spin it.
No, no. Years of warnings, the rise of the Tea Party, countless townhall meetings, Scott Brown’s election, the 2010 mid-terms, and even the government shutdown itself weren’t warnings, but rather “sabotage“.
And they’re serious. In Liberal/Leftist/Democrat parlance, somehow standing in the middle of the road and screaming that the bridge is out is now the moral equivalent of cutting your brake lines.

Ever since the Democrats started seriously formulating their ideas about Obamacare in 2009, we’ve heard all the same arguments, over and over:
- It will “bend the Cost Curve down…” — Umm, no, it doesn’t.
- “If you like your Insurance Plan, you can KEEP your Insurance Plan…” — Again, that depends: do you buy your insurance yourself, rather than through your employer? Do you own a Small Business? If so, then NO, you likely can’t keep your existing plan. Sorry ’bout that…
- “Your Healthcare will be better…” — That was always laughable, since adding millions of people to the ranks of the insured doesn’t add a proportionate number of doctors (see “If You Like Your Doctor” above…). Your care can’t be better when the same number (or fewer) doctors are attempting to care for tens of millions more patients.
But the one constant which we heard throughout all of the discussions was: “if you oppose Obamacare, you’re racist“.

Of all the behaviors by our über-Leftist media which causes my stomach to churn, their incessant carping about “Racism” may be the most annoying.
It really doesn’t matter what the subject is, either. The “everything that Right-wingers/Conservatives/Republicans do is racist” rant is heard as regularly as the weather. And while MSNBC seems to lead the pack in this category (fairly consistently), other media outlets aren’t that far behind, with one charge of racism being more ridiculous than the next.

When I was a kid, racism was described to me as being the differentiation of one group from another based upon their skin color. Isn’t that still basically it? Whether that treatment is preferential or detrimental is irrelevant: being a racist is focusing on one’s race as a means of judging that person’s heart, abilities, motives or actions.
And yet, it seems more and more that the folks in positions of authority (namely the schools and the government) are more focused than ever on drawing attention to people’s race. We just gave an example of this the other day, when we discussed a program run by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction which encouraged white students to wear a white wristband “as a reminder about your (white) privilege.”
Rather than being an outlier, such hyper-guilt-based instruction now seems to be something of a trend in education.
