A blogger for liberal activist group Campaign for America’s Future has equated those opposed to passing health care legislation that includes a government-run plan to Holocaust deniers.
In a long, rambling post titled “Birthers = Health Care Deniers,” blogger Brian Dockstader writes:
Let me preface this by explaining my rationale for labeling opponents of health care reform “health care deniers”. I call them deniers, in much the same vein as global warming deniers and Holocaust deniers, and for the very same reason. These people deny that we have a health care problem. They deny this in the face of all facts. They choose blindness, they deny, to further their own self-interested agenda. And to add a second definition of denier–these people not only deny the problem, but in doing so they also seek to deny us a solution. Their denial is pathological, and it is toxic to having an intellectually honest debate about health care reform.
During the rest of his rant, Dockstader makes a desperate attempt to connect those opposed to liberal health care policies to people who don’t believe Obama is a U.S. citizen.
Campaign for America’s Future has played a key role in pushing Congress to pass a health care bill that includes a government-run plan modeled after Medicare, and it is a founding member of the liberal Health Care for America Now coalition.
