I suppose it was to be expected.
When the 6-3 ruling on the Obamacare subsidies came down from the Supreme Court this morning, the reaction from the right wing of the country started up, and they were filled with anger, lies, distortions, and flat out hate speech.
In other words, some things never change.
All you had to do was take a peek at Twitter and Facebook to see just how agitated the right wingers were. Here are a few of the posts that caught my eye:
That’s the spirit! Keep pretending you can ever repeal a law that is helping millions of people. I don’t think the next President (who will be named Hillary Clinton) is gonna go for that. Hey, she might even give us single-payer!
Mike Huckabee, taking a break from defending child molesters who fancy their sisters, took to Facebook and wrote:
“Our Founding Fathers didn’t create a ‘do-over’ provision in our Constitution that allows unelected, Supreme Court justices the power to circumvent Congress and rewrite bad laws. The Supreme Court cannot legislate from the bench, ignore the Constitution, and pass a multi-trillion dollar ?fix? to ObamaCare simply because Congress misread what the states would actually do.”
Hey, Mike: Go back to selling bogus cures for diabetes, because you clearly do not understand the U.S. Constitution.
Breitbart writer John Hayward issued this whiny statement:
“Goodbye, rule of law. It was great while it lasted.”
Yeah, as if you actually understand the first thing about the rule of law, goniff breath.
Other on social media directed their vitriol toward the Supreme Court justices themselves:
“#Obamacare justice Roberts still blackmailed for adoption of two foreign kids provides key vote for Obamacare. He is still a trader.”
To which I can only reply: He’s a “trader,” is he? Does he import or export? Or is he an importer-exporter? Those of you who are “Seinfeld” fans will get that and laugh mightily. Others, not so much.
I’ll end with another of my personal favorites:
“America does not have a single king ruler, but instead has 9 kings/queens who’s dictatorial-esk power rule us all. #SCOTUScare“
Really? Stupid-esk much?
