Below are some photos I took today of Republicans greeting President Obama as he came to Raleigh to talk about health care.
While there were plenty of health care supporters outside, and many more inside, I mostly took photos of the anti-healthcare peoples because they were more, well shall we say "interesting." Also the police separated supporters from the anti-everything people, and I got stuck on the no side.
It's like they are drawing a subtle connection between America's President and America's greatest enemy... If only bin Laden was a communist the GOP attack plan would be complete.
Can you fraking believe this shit? Obama's health care plan might help people of color! Like it's not bad enough that our President crossed out life, liberty, and happiness and replaced them with evil things, now he's trying to cut minorities a break to boot.
Simple enough. See how she didn't need to go all conspiracy-racist-AynRand-babykiller-Marx-teabag-freakout? Good job lady.
This poor woman lives directly across from Broughton High. The tea bag people kicked her sign down, so she was out there with her puppy protecting it. The puppy wasn't intimidating enough in my opinion; he couldn't even manage to stay in the shot.
He refused to sell it to me. Looks like some of the elite in this world really are going Galt.
I thought this NCGOP activist and Planned Parenthood woman were having a cordial conversation about reproductive rights, but then I head the pro-life woman say, very civil, "I'm happy to discuss the facts with you if by facts you mean murder." Take that Planned Parenthood person: facts = murder = checkmate.
I thought yall were the ones who wanted chaos? Jerk.
The NCGOP platform in triptych. The third sign attacked the First Lady.
See that you spoiled kids! All of Santa's toys get redistributed to children so he doesn't have any health care for himself. But he's not looking for a hand-out, is he?
Done. How much you want to bet it's about how ACORN is evil?
The sad thing was, as you can see from two of the photos above, a number of the the GOP activists had signs talking about how they themselves lack health care. What are they going to do if they get sick? I mean, besides not ask for help.
