This is a few weeks old but yes, look at all of the white people expect us to agree with them that the possibility that they could harbor racist feelings is about .0000001 percent, because racism is dead. And then there are two black guys but really, out of the dozens of people here… nice casting job! [YouTube]

    Aaargh, so much stupid. Race-baiting-baiting?

    I guess I’m an obstinate douchebag who thinks that skyrocketing healthcare rates for those under employee plans and ludicrously expensive rates for those who have to purchase healthcare on their own is perfectly fine!

    Fixed.

  • Larry McAwful

    0% of administration officials and 0% of Congresspeople and pro-health care pundits are saying a single word about how opposition to Barack Obama’s health care reform proposal is racist. In fact, that commercial doesn’t even say who is saying so.

    So I guess I’m a racist.

  • ManchuCandidate

    This feels about as real as Larry Craig’s denials of being gay.

  • I-man

    What whiny bullshit, 12% of America thinks that you idiots are racists and you put out an ad defending yourself against such minority? I, for what its what, don’t you you idiots are racists;just idiots.

    No, scratch that. I think that you guys like to shove extremely large and painful things up yer derrière. I duly expect an ad where you idiots own up to my accusation. Remember I am only one person, out of over 300 million Americans, so you better get to addressing my opinion, because we all know the smaller and outrageous the voice the more urgent it is to address that voice in all seriousness in an attempt to distract from the conversation at hand. Oh, and yes, you are racists.

    All I said was that the President was a welfare-sucking, thug-talking porch monkey.

    I GUESS THAT MEANS I’M A RACIST TOO, HUH LIBRULZ?

    OK, so maybe you’re not a racist. Maybe you’re a delusional, strawman-using, reality-ignoring douchebag.

  • chaste everywhere

    No way the drag queen who pops up at :50 ain’t racist. But the two colored gentlemen they found are both surprisingly articulate and the second one even looks clean, albeit s-l-o-w–and oozingly self-piteous.

    You GUESS you’re racist? YOU GUESS?

    No! You DEFINITELY are!

  • peeno nwar

    “If it’s racist to suddenly, out of the blue, starting screaming ‘Hitler’ at everybody over an unremarkable issue that’s been on the table for 30+ years and about which I have never before made a peep, when the only identifiable difference is that there is now a black man in the White House, I guess I’m a racist.”

  • Larry McAwful

    12% of Americans are willing to pay extra for green products. Since that’s enough to draw a definitive conclusion with, then why are conservatives continuing to boycott such goods and block legislation to make them more available?

  • Godot

    My favorite is the Asian guy, because they probably thought they were adding a little diversity but really it’s just playing to the stereotype that Asians hate blacks even more than white people do. Especially with that guy’s super-serious delivery.

    Awkward. I called my senator. His legislative assistant answered and I said “No!!!” The LA said “What?” I said “NO!” The LA said “I’m not sure I understand.” I didn’t know what to do so I said “I guess I’m a racist.” The LA hung up.

    They’re also paid whores who couldn’t get a job on a reality TeeVee show.

    “Then, apparently, a lot of people in this country are racist.”
    No, really? I guess someone wasn’t paying attention to all the signs and white crosses at the teabagger rallies this year.

    Though they did forget the tiny-print, quickly muttered “paid for by the KKK” disclaimer at the end.

  • JMP

    These guys are good at being deliberately obtuse. First, no one said that all opponents of health care reform are racists, just that many of the specific protesters and comments were – you know, like the Obama-witchdoctor image. And of course many of the anti-reform leaders, such as Rush and Beck, are overt racists.

    Then voiceover-man says people call them racists because they’re against “a total government takeover of health care” – hey, dipshit, I for one would love that, but it’s simply not on the table, or anything close to it; no, I don’t know if you are a racist, but you are definitely a liar.

  • germansteel

    The fact that they describe the health insurance legislation as being “Obama’s health care bill” answers the question of whether or not they are racists. To me, anyhow.

    [re=473126]ManchuCandidate[/re]: If pushing a burly man gently away from the airport urinal, fishing him out of his trousers, and giving him a tender blowjob right then and there, with his fingers running through my thinning hair, makes me gay, then I guess… um…

    Can I try saying that again?

  • M.Yazz

    I like how the baby looked up at her racist mother and basically said, “WTF? Who’s ‘we?'”

  • WABishop

    No, they’re not racist. They just don’t want black people to receive health care because, you know, what they’re like.

  • forgracie

    The President’s black? Son of a bitch….

  • dijetlo

    Oh man, the RNC needs to pump about 50 million dollars into that ad and get it in every major market in HEAVY rotation because it makes no sense at all.
    ” I don’t like the health care plan because I don’t have a fucking clue what the hell is going on, so I’m going to pretend it’s a government take over of the AMA and then further pretend someone is calling me a racist because I don’t like Hitler!”
    It leave the impression that the Republicans hate the President sooo much that they’ve turned into a pack of 2 year olds whining like they’ve got a soggy diaper (apologies to Senator Vitter if he’s had his recently changed).So Mickey, this needs serious play, it will rally the Paultards like and octogenarian in a tri-corner hat (skipping the depends reference here for fear of being redundant).

  • I_KILL_ZOMBIES_ALSO

    I wonder how many people could feel their souls die a little bit as they said their line, their heart racing, the bile sluicing into their mouths even as they stop to think, “am I really cocking my eyebrow just enough to sell this?” How many of these people had to sit in a dark corner afterwards and repeat to themselves, “But the money is good, and maybe someone will notice me, and it’s work, right, I mean, work is work, you do what you gotta do to eat.”

    And how many of these people on their car ride home from the shoot felt that leaden feeling in their stomach, that screaming sense of regret, that final assertion that you can’t take it back, and no one hears from them for days until finally some loved one finds them curled up in the bath tub with a blank stare on their face and the shower pelting them with torrents of icy cold water.

    I just, you know, these are the things I think about from time to time.

  • sitonmyface

    I guess I’m racist against racists…..GD, can we stop all this BS and get something done in this country for a change, we look like a complete bunch of morons, on a sinking ship, with 300 million people on it and 500 life preservers!!

    [re=473222]chaste everywhere[/re]: [re=473226]Zadig[/re]: Very true.

    Remember when people that disagreed with Bush were catagorized as terroists,
    I guess was a terrorist. Now that war mongering is no longer an issue among liberals, disagreeing with the war now makes me a racist.

    What if, as they say, Barack’s birth certificate actually says he’s white (they did that with single white moms back in the day)? What happens with this line of reasoning?

  • Dumptruck

    Can we make a counter ad about how opponents of the healthcare plan think its supporters are socialists?

  • Katydid

    Wait, I thought in Obama’s America, only black people are racist? I’m confused.

    And, Sara K., if you’re still with us, thanks a lot for the linky link to the NY Daily News. I noticed a link called something like “How Many White Women Does One Brother Waaant,” and I foolishly clicked on it, and it’s an unbelievably, horribly simplistic and racist article by the AP about a very complex issue. I encourage no one to click. I will note, however, that they changed the link title to “Tiger Woods alienates black community with white lovers.”

  • Hooray For Anything

    [re=473197]I_KILL_ZOMBIES_ALSO[/re]: Don’t forget that the people who appeared in the ad are barely employed actors who wait tables to get by which means probably most of them don’t have health insurance and can’t afford it.

    They probably are racist and their dislike of Obama’s healthcare plan is incidental. Glenn Beck’s slave reparations comment, also.

  • BarackMyWorld

    Most have commented on the inappropriate use of the word “racist” in this ad, but has anyone commented yet on the inappropriate use of the words “total” and “take-over”? That’s actually the most far-fetched thing in the spot.

    I can’t believe they’re all racist! It’s a pretty brave thing for these folks to admit, gotta give the GOP props for profiles in courage. Oh wait, are we to assume they’re not “truly” racist because they have two fine black folks and a latina in that sea of WASPY vanilla? Because these people look nice? I mean, I guess that’s the assumption; unless you’re wearing a white robe or a brown shirt, you can’t be racist, right? Schmucks.

    “Then, apparently, a lot of people in this country are racist.”

  • mumblyjoe

    [re=473378]M Lite[/re]: Don’t forget the asian guy! That makes them, like, at least 50% less racist than Sarah Palin.

    I’m still not quite getting the connection between being opposed to healthcare reform and being called a racist. Racism is one of a couple of dozen stupid reasons to oppose healthcare reform, but nobody, AFAICT, ever said it was the only stupid reason, or even the most popular stupid reason. On the other hand, these tea party things? Yeah, there *are* a whole lot of racists there. And those are taking place in America. And they’re typically rather insistently possessive that America is ‘their’ country, not, say, mine. Ergo, there really *must* be a whole lot of racists in America. I can only assume that they were doing that thing where you admit something as truth, but mask it in sarcasm? This ad is confusing.

  • sezme

    This is disturbingly similar to those “you might just be a redneck” jokes. Which are told and enjoyed by rednecks. Just saying.
