Democrat Harry Reid Plays the Race Card and Compares Opponents to Obamacare to Those that Oppposed Slavery
Talk about desperation and a failed and disastrous health care bill. Look what Harry Reid has resorted to.
Democrat Play Book 101, page 3 states that when you have no argument, no facts and the American people are against you on an issue, use the race card and call Republicans racists.
Harry Reid calls Republicans pro-slavery for not backing his terrible nationalized health care bill that would in fact enslave individuals to a government option that would become a single payer healthcare system.
From Fox News:
But Reid argued that Republicans are using the same stalling tactics employed in the pre-Civil War era.
“Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all the Republicans can come up with is, ‘slow down, stop everything, let’s start over.’ If you think you’ve heard these same excuses before, you’re right,” Reid said Monday. “When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said ‘slow down, it’s too early, things aren’t bad enough.’”
Once again Democrat Senate Majority leader Harry Reid has sunk to the depths to evoke the race card where no exists. Reid likened the opposition to Obamacare by Republicans to the law makers that opposed the institution of Slavery. Yes, he said it. When you have nothing and a poor floundering disaster of a bill, evoke the memory of slavery.
As Michelle Malkin states, far be it from the truth and history get in the way of the hot air being passed by Harry Reid. Lest we remind every one what party fought against the abolishment of slavery? Do we need a quick history lesson Senator Reid?
It was the GOP that fought slavery and the Democrat Party that battled to preserve it.
It’s the Democrat Party, not the GOP, that boasts an ex-Klansman among its senior leaders.
But don’t confuse Harry Reid with history while he invokes slavery to lambaste the GOP for opposing the government-run health care takeover.
Are you a racist? The Democrats certainly think so if you dare oppose Obamacare. And every one thought that the election of Barack Obama, the first black President would help race relations. What a laugh. All it has accomplished was to give liberal Democrats free reign and a license to use the race card at will.
Big Government has it right, Democrats manufactured the crisis and the rage. There is a reason why a majority of Americans are against the socialized, universal health care bill known as Obamacare. There is a reason why nearly 80% of Americans like the insurance they presently have. However, in the eyes of Harry Reid and Democrats … you folks are pro-slavery.
Republicans condemned Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) comments. Is it any wonder that Harry Reid is failing in the polls in Nevada for reelection. Obamacare is widely opposed in Nevada as well.
