You've heard some variation on this argument against public health insurance. But if you need yet another dose of this Obama-wants-to-euthanize-grandma crap, you can always count on RedState to bring teh stupid. And by the time you read it, someone will have lost their insurance, gone bankrupt, and maybe died because we lack public health care.
Obama wants to kill white people so he can give their money to lazy minorities that are too unmotivated to earn an honest living picking cotton and tap dancing.
The theme of "Government plot to kill us all!!!" is a cliche that Alex Jones, Lyndon LaRouche, the militias, white supremacists, successionists, Nazis, and domestic terrorists attach to everything they don't like. Why does the MSM repeat each the-government-will-slaughter-you-so-go-blow-up-a-federal-building-to-stop-the-New-World-Order tropes from the white supremacist/terrorist fringe? Because GOP congressmen keep repeating them?
Let's review - what are the government plots to slaughter us?
Health care reform
Let's watch some videos, and put this in context..
Look at other examples of elaborate paranoia promoted by the right wing bomb building fringe:
The federal government was supposedly plotting to hand over the country the UN, who would of course do what the UN does best, go on a killing spree.
The may be using bioweapons like swine flu or bird flu. David Ickes rips the lid off it.
An then of course there are the FEMA death camps (Glenn Beck says he can't disprove this one).
Thousands of rail rail cars with shackles welded to the walls wait in rail yards around the country, and many of them are rumored to have giullateens welded into them, which will haul away your body and your severed head. I sounds a little unwieldy, but it's a popular scenario. Because it's all about the New World Order taking over.
And then of course there is the Census, and Michelle Bachmann warns us that the information will be used to round us up, although some nutcases say that we'll simply be dragged out an shot on our own front lawns.
Which of course brings us full circle to Obamas plot to kill Grandma, as so articulately explained by Virginia Foxx (Insane - NC)
And just to make sure we cover the domestic terrorism angle, here's Randell Terry threatening violence and terrorism to the National Press Club if we get health care reform.
So what are the roots of this? Why do these stories routinely seem to take root in the white supremacist/militia groups? Remember that Fascism and Nazism are fundamentally conspiracy theories about how the Jews and mongrel races were going to slaughter all the white people. And even before they got off the ground, there was virulent antisemitism, such as the hoax book "The Protocols Of The Elders of Zion," which was all about how the Jews were plotting to trigger a war that would slaughter all the white people.
It's worth mentioning that this is the same crap that Muslim suicide bombers are weaned on, which is just one more thing they have in common with American neonazis.
The GOP has become a bundle of cliches, but it sticks with these themes because they work at a visceral level with a certain part of the population. And that is what Hitler said about his use of antisemitism - the goal was to hammer home these paranoid fantasies with the stupidest 10% of the population, and that could be enough to take over the country.
