  1. MIchelle Malkin is covering this story??? Well, thank God for that. Now we can all be sure that we’re getting the real truth. Oh for God’s sake. Malkin is a blatant propagandist who wouldn’t recognize the truth if it was painted on her jack-boots. Who the hell cares if that nut at the Frank town hall was a LaRoucher? The point is that she was there to derail the discussion, like a lot of other people who hate this president so much that they want to see him fail. I mean, it’s not like she actually expected an answer. Or do you think it was a sincere question? Now, we’ve got people insisting that health care reform will allow insurance companies to get into our bank accounts. The lying that’s going on is nothing short of pathological and people like you have become part of the problem, rather than the solution. Talk about “pathetic”.

    • You have no proof, nothing to back up what you are saying. Of course, that isn’t why you are commenting is it?

      No, you’re a special kind of mental midget. The point of this article was that news media was purposely portraying fringe-left headcases as regular conservative protesters, but not just that. The media, out of loyalty to the president they helped elect, are viciously attacking those who don’t submit to this lunacy, something you purposely ignored. It does matter that she was a LaRouche Democrat, especially since THEY ARE THE ONES who are bringing the Nazi/Hitler posters to these events. You see, it isn’t that this health care reform bill is extreme for them, it is that it doesn’t go far enough. Instead of trying to bring about real reform, these radicals want to tear down the entire system and start again, and if Obama won’t agree with them, he is a Nazi then…

      Now the news media loves this because then they can edit videos and villainize regular Americans. They get radicals like you to take to the blogs and spout useless nonsense, which in turns brings more radicals into the streets. We have already seen SEIU thuggery, something Michelle Malkin has covered and has shown with VIDEO EVIDENCE (she can’t be a liar if unedited amateur video shows these unionists proving her point), as well as eye witness testimony from the few responsible reporters covering these events. Something you ignored ONCE AGAIN with this reply. Do you not like women, or is it simply strong willed conservative ones that upset you? Instead of providing proof to the contrary, you simply villainize her…

      Do I want to see Obama fail? YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT! He has killed jobs all over Ontario with his mismanaging of the auto bailout, he is threatening even more jobs with his “Buy American” policy he is trying to bring back, as well as “cap and trade”. His “success” means Canadian failure, and that is something I will not support. YOU GET THAT??? Canadians are losing jobs because of his decisions, and you are telling me that it is ok? NO IT ISN’T! Our countries are attached at the hip, and I am damn sure not going to stand by and watch as he cuts Canadians off at the knees by destroying the American health care system, a system THOUSANDS of us depend on.

      You want to try this again? Tell you what… No… I have posted a comment on your page, which is an incoherent mess of bias and bullshit, typical of a “kool-aid drinking” drone like yourself, and I will post them here for my readers to read. I expect you will edit or even delete what I said because that is what demented drones like you do…

      P.S. What the hell were you trying to say by that whole bit about Michelle Obama’s father? Your speculation and straw man argument is downright pathetic… But once again, drones will be drones…

      *****

      Outright lies? Michelle Malkin is a liar? Really? Where’s your proof? Of course you don’t have any, facts aren’t your line of work. Where is your proof? You site ONE SOURCE for this article… You’re pathetic…

      Now, let me get this straight, you come to my blog to challenge me, a Canadian, on socialized health care… HAHAHAHA I can’t believe you would be so naive. Tell you what, you want this mess, you take it, and while America messes around with this, we Canadians will move towards private health care…

      There is nothing Michelle Malkin or others have said that I myself can’t support with my own stories of the “horrors” of socialized health care. My father collapsed twice, rushed to hospital… AND WASN’T LOOKED AT! All we know is that his blood pressure was dangerously low, and doctors refused to treat him because he didn’t seem to be in distress. My brother was STARVED by the very hospital that was supposed to fix his broken arm. After delaying for almost a week, and refusing to feed him because of a pending operation, which had been delayed 4 times already, my mother had to bring food in from outside because they wouldn’t give him anything. My mother has been bounced from doctor to doctor for years, and now SHE HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM HER DOCTOR’S PATIENT LIST. She suffers from a slew of aches in her legs and back, on top of the her MS…

      I could go on with more stories, each one a piece of evidence to back up EVERTHING Michelle Malkin and others have said about health care reform. You don’t even have links to outside sources to back up your garbage…

      You’re pathetic… Just another drone…

      P.S. Seeing that Culture of Corruption is #1 on the New York Times Best Seller List, and seeing that scandal after scandal coming out of the White House seems to fuel book sales, you are of a shrinking minority which still refuses to see the light on the wall.

    • Just another comment for my readers to see, especially if you won’t let them…

      *****

      Oh, and one more thing, PolitiFact as well as FactCheck.org and all these other clones are very selective in how they “check facts”. They are also very selective of what they accept to check for facts. Does it matter to you that these “fact checkers” receive funding from political groups? Non-partisan my ass, especially when the only reason such an organization would exist would be to filter news through their own bias. Wrote a few pieces during the election referring to this, but of course you wouldn’t read them. Probably put your fingers in your ears and simply ignore the evidence…

      No university professors would let you cite one source for a paper, so why should we? Pathetic…

  2. You’re even going after PolitiFact and FactCheck? You actually believe that Michelle Malkin is more credible than a non-partisan, Pulitzer prize-winning website that is dedicated to researching the facts? I think this fits into the category of pig-headedness or brain-washed.

    I would challenge anybody who portrayed Michelle Malkin or anything that she has written as anything but pure sophistry and distortion. Her new book is evidence enough of that. As far as challenging anyone on “socialized medicine”, I don’t know why I would do that and I certainly have not. I would challenge anybody who thinks that any of the three proposals currently before Congress represent anything close to socialized medicine. The government here would be taking over nothing. No doctor, nurse, technician or therapist would be on the government payroll, and no bureaucrat would stand between the patient and their doctor. The government would be creating and administering a public option element, which is the only way to ensure that all Americans have access to adequate health care. If they don’t get coverage, we’re going to pay for their care anyway, like we’re doing right now. How anybody can be against something like defies logic.

    Anecdotal stories about different people’s experience with their health care system aren’t of much use. There are just as many good ones as bad ones, in all types of health care systems. My mother-in-law, who is 92, blind and has breast cancer, raves about her Medicare and never has trouble getting in to see her doctor. For the most part, seniors are satisfied with their Medicare coverage, as are their families. In any case, suggestions that any future single-payer plan that might evolve from the public option would be based strictly on the Medicare model are nonsense and a classic scare tactic.

    The fact that “Culture of Corruption” is #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list only goes to show how gullible and ignorant the people are who are spending their money on Malkin’s work of fiction. It certainly is not proof that her book has a shred of truth in it, or that it is even well-written. “The Celestine Prophecy” was at the top of that list for months and it is regarded as one of the worst novels in literary history. Michelle Malkin is a racist hate-monger who is petrified that a black man is sitting in the White House. She will say and do anything to discredit him and breed distrust in the American people. That is her mission. The fact that you give her any credibility at all speaks volumes about the quality of your thinking.

    • “As far as challenging anyone on “socialized medicine”, I don’t know why I would do that and I certainly have not.”

      And yet in the very next sentence…

      “I would challenge anybody who thinks that any of the three proposals currently before Congress represent anything close to socialized medicine.”

      You wrote an article entire article addressing the government’s plan, WHICH IS SOCIALIZED HEALTH CARE! Missing the point entirely… WOW… OK, another one…

      “No doctor, nurse, technician or therapist would be on the government payroll, and no bureaucrat would stand between the patient and their doctor.”

      HAHAHAHA! What do you think Medicare is? Doctors BEING PAID BY THE GOVERNMENT at discounted rates for patient care. Do you even listen to what is being said by Obama? Appointing a commission to decide what treatments are appropriate for patients? Deciding what tests can be performed? Oh, of course you didn’t… Here, let me help…

      He tells the lady her mother should take pills instead of getting a pace-maker. He just inserted himself in between this woman’s doctor and her mother, what makes you think that when he has control of the health care system he won’t appoint others to do that? Next one…

      “My mother-in-law, who is 92, blind and has breast cancer, raves about her Medicare and never has trouble getting in to see her doctor. or the most part, seniors are satisfied with their Medicare coverage, as are their families. In any case, suggestions that any future single-payer plan that might evolve from the public option would be based strictly on the Medicare model are nonsense and a classic scare tactic.”

      Scare tactic? Obama himself has said this, that since Medicare worked so well (which is a lie), that the government option (which wouldn’t be an option… Monopolies never are) will be modeled off it. ObamaCare WILL REPLACE Medicare, and by forcing people off Medicare onto this system, to cover costs, care will be rationed. My mother is being denied care in Canada, as well as thousands of others, especially seniors, don’t think it won’t happen there. And besides, what about Ezekiel Emanuel’s statements on 65 year old patients not getting care? I guess on Democrats are immune from what they said before right? No flip-flopping eh? The guy got caught saying something heartless, and now he is denying it… Once again, politicians creating new lies…

      You are pathetic. Michelle Malkin isn’t terrified that Obama is black, no one is. Larry Elder, along with other black conservatives, has criticized the President as well. What is their reason? Are they just “Uncle Toms”? It is depressing to see that you swallow this bullshit like a good little drone… Obama’s opening statements in the audio book version of Dreams From My Father say just that, that the only reason Republicans and Conservatives don’t like him is because he is black. It isn’t because he is black, it is because he is “red”…

      You are the racist, you are the one filled with hate, and you can’t stand that The One isn’t being “properly worshiped”. That fact that you parrot his talking points is evidence of this… That is my proof, where is yours? Pathetic…

      *****

      Is Michelle Malkin biased? Of course, but we all are. Something you are ignoring. Hmmm, ignoring facts and basic common sense… You do that a lot don’t you?

      Now, by saying that PolitiFact and FactCheck aren’t bias, and deifying them as post-partisan entities which can be trusted is silly. You have lost YOUR objectivity because you refuse to take into account that there are reasons such organizations exist, and instead of ACTUALLY EXAMINING what is being said, you take it on faith that there is nothing being left out. After all, they are fact checkers right? They are honest and bias-free right? WRONG!

      Why do you think CNN and MSNBC, two of the news outlets I targeted for journalistic malpractice in my article use these groups? These self-describe truth seekers are given the mantle of absolute authority, and in relying on them solely for facts, you commit yet another fallacy, a false appeal to authority. Seeing how many, if not all these organizations, have just shown up out of the blue, they are very much new to political audiences. Instead of embracing them, you should pay attention to how they address news stories they fact check. FactCheck.org has been caught on numerous occasions during the election for misrepresenting the facts. Instead of presenting an entire argument, they focus in on one point, and in disproving that single point, they then come to the conclusion that everything said was a lie. Of course only a drone like yourself would bother accepting such nonsense as fact…

      I noticed how you ignored my statements on my own experiences in socialized health care, but of course you wouldn’t address it. My own experiences with a system that the new president of the Canadian Medical Association, Dr. Anne Doig, says is “imploding” fatally wounds this entire article. You so-called “proof” and evidence to the contrary, you quote biased sources and make outrageous statements which aren’t backed up by facts. For instance, I seriously doubt MILLIONS of Americans go bankrupt every year from health care costs. You created those figures, or took them Obama’s talking points (which aren’t very accurate). I also doubt that Medicare will still exist when it is thrown away and everyone is put on ObamaCare (didn’t think that one through eh?). As for abortion payment, it is in the bill, “death panels”, look at Oregan, forcing insurance companies out of business, look at speeches he has given in 2003 and 2007 (Youtube it), look at what his supporters are saying about this being a backdoor for a single-payer system, etc

      Aside from the obvious, let’s tackle that ONE piece of evidence you have stated. Michelle Obama’s biography? A non-biased source? HA! Obama’s Dreams From My Father has been properly fact checked for numerous inconsistencies, but you are willing to accept his wife’s kind portrayal of events? TALK ABOUT A KOOL-AID DRINKER! You’re new to politics, so here is a lesson for you. Politicians lie, and those caught lying will lie more, creating new lies to cover old ones. Michelle Obama is trying to cover her past, especially when it comes to the backroom dealings done at the University of Chicago Medical Center. Is it any wonder she got a 160% raise when her husband directed one million in state funds to expand the hospital? Political back scratching…

      As for my own research? I did and still do… I have been doing research for YEARS on socialized health care, mainly through my own experiences. Your research consists of ONE SOURCE, once again something that isn’t impressive at all.. Does it surprise you that the right is using Canada’s failed system as evidence of the dangers ObamaCare poses to America? Everything that is being said I can back up, but not just me. MILLIONS OF CANADIANS can testify to what is being said. Pathetic…

      If she was wrong, I would correct her, like I have in the past, but she isn’t. Put the “Kool-Aid” down and WAKE UP!

    • Another fallacy; Appeal to false authority, many of them. You have a former premier, like a governor to a province (not an expert), a member of a nurses union (obvious bias seeing how her paycheck is government dependent), a health and research consultant, the kind politicians BUY “a dime a dozen”, etc. All of them having something at stake in the health care debate, but of course you didn’t think that through did you?

      http://www.canada.com/health/Doctors+debate+opens+door+private+delivery+health+care/1905076/story.html

      Funny thing is that this vote comes from Saskatoon, a city in the same province as these “talking heads” for socialized health care. Now if these “experts” in the video you presented are on the right side of the issue, why did the Canadian Medical Association not only decide to push for competition for public health care dollars, but did this with 85% of the group voting for it? Think that one over… THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY VOTED AGAINST YOUR “EXPERTS”!

      I can tell you as a Canadian, most of us don’t think about health care until it is too late. I know many people who have been injured or suffered a serious illness only to find that the medical system which is supposed to take care of them doesn’t. Are you going to try to tell me otherwise? Are you going to try and tell me that I imagined all this? I dare you…

      Tell you what, stick to calling me and the rest of my side “racists” and “hate-mongers”. It makes you look pathetic, not completely stupid… Hilarious…
