Rhode Island Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse today called opponents of the Obamacare bill lunatic extremists during a floor speech, failing to account for the fact that in every leading opinion poll almost two thirds of Americans fall into that category.

"They are desperate to break this president. They have ardent supporters who are nearly hysterical at the very election of President Barack Obama." Whitehouse commented, adding "The birthers, the fanatics, the people running around in right-wing militias and Aryan support groups, it is unbearable to them that President Barack Obama should exist. That is one powerful reason. It is not the only one."

Whitehouse cited an editorial by The relatively unknown Manchester Journal Inquirer in which the editor described the Republican party as being "dominated by the lunatic fringe", adding that it "has poisoned itself with hate."

Watch the video:

 

Clearly, both the Senator and the bastions of journalistic integrity at the Manchester Journal Inquirer have not bothered to look at the latest opinion polls on the healthcare bill.

Had they done so they would have discovered that despite the progression of the legislation through the Senate, it is still highly unpopular with the American people.

The latest Rasmussen Reports weekly tracking update shows that 41% of voters nationwide favor the bill and 55% are opposed. Those figures are essentially unchanged from a week ago. This the fifth straight week with support for the legislation between 38% and 41%.

Almost two thirds of Americans oppose the bill in a poll from CNN eleven days ago, while 51% oppose in a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll.

An NBC/Wall St Journal poll found that just 32% believe the healthcare overhaul is a good idea, while only 36% pledged support in an AP-GFK poll.

When a journalist from the Washington Times approached Whitehouse, he denied that he was intimating that opponents of the healthcare bill were racist, and also denied that he'd even said the word "aryan".

According to Senator Whitehouse's logic, this means that 97% of the Washington Times' readers are virulent racists.

Senator Whitehouse's unfounded "racist" slur is yet another example of the establishment left playing the phony race card in an attempt to slant the debate.

Injecting the idea of discrimination in an effort to polarize a group of people is no different to actually engaging in the act of discrimination.
