Gutfeld: Media 'Brutally Smeared' ObamaCare Protesters to Get Law Passed
This evening on “The Five,” Greg Gutfeld said that ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber made the 2009 ObamaCare town hall protesters look like fortune tellers.
“Let’s remember – Gruber didn’t call them stupid. He called the people who fell for the bill stupid, which made the town hallers geniuses.”
Gutfeld noted that those protesters were called far worse back then – “an unruly mob out for blood.”
But now, it turns out that the mob knew ObamaCare was a scam.
“[They] were just trying to save us from ourselves,” he said.
Gutfeld charged the media with “brutally smearing” those people to get ObamaCare passed.
“Let’s call it what it is: bigotry.”
Gutfeld said the media mocked those people because they were old, but would have listened if they were young – like the Occupy Wall Street protesters.
Now that the truth is out, what do we hear from the media?
“Silence, not of lambs but of liars, who deserve nothing less than to be tarred and feathered by every person who lost their health care or doctor, by every person who saw their rates rise, and every person who ended up with inferior health care for their special needs child,” he said.
Gutfeld concluded, “ObamaCare is what happens when a government deceives and when a cowardly media forfeits their role in exposing it.”
