Until the recent implosion of many aspects of ObamaCare, including the Oct 1 web site failed launch, President Obama, himself, has often referred to the Affordable Care Act as ObamaCare. Apparently he is no longer comfortable having his name associated with the health care law. Now, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry has declared that the term ObamaCare is racist and invented by wealthy white people in a derogatory way to demean a black leader “to render him inferior and unequal and diminish his accomplishments.”
So, anyone uttering or writing the word ObamaCare from now on is clearly a racist. Never mind HillaryCare and Reaganomics; those terms were obviously just dreamed up from the political well from whence they came and not motivated by the color of anyone’s skin. But anyone claiming that the ObamaCare term was only politically motivated is in denial and likely a bigot as well.
Oh crap! I just wrote ObamCare five times — oops — six times. I feel so guilty.
This is a classic method to make an argument when you are too lazy or lacking evidence for a truthful debate: name-calling and accusing opponents as being racist.
