They finally got to the money shot. Seriously, I don’t know how they can ever top this ridiculousness.
[Yesterday] on Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, National Review Online columnist Jerry Bowyer attacked Michael Moore’s movie SiCKO and its positive portrayal of the health care in countries such as Britain and France. He argued that national health care systems are breeding grounds for terrorists because they are “bureaucratic.” “I think the terrorists have shown over and over again … they’re very good at gaming the system with bureaucracies,” said Bowyer.
Yes, if America ever adopts a national healthcare system, we’ll all be blown up in our beds.
Seriously, is there anything Fox News won’t link to terrorism in a blatantly transparent scare tactic? Oh, and nominated for the knucklehead quote of the day:
Indeed, Bowyer added, “[I]f one of your guys is a jihadist, if one of your doctors is spending all the time online reading Osama bin Laden fatwas, someone’s going to notice that. But the National Health Service is more like the post office, you know there’s a lot of anonymity, it’s easy to hide in the bureaucracy.”
Oh-boy. Trust Fox, folks. You’re better off getting sick and dying over something that could be easily treated than seeing a doctor… because your doctor may just be working for al Quaeda! Shriek! Scream! Aiiieeeee!!!
