RUSH: Let’s talk about the white coats, the doctors at the White House. They were a manipulation. I called it yesterday. I’m on a roll, folks, on See, I Told You So’s. Listen to this.
RUSH ARCHIVE: Obama, 150 doctors in white coats in the Rose Garden today to go through the motions of saying they support Obamacare. I don’t know but I would like to find out if there was a psychiatrist among them because that’s who’s needed inside the White House. Now, this is a classic textbook move by the fascists. What you do here is you organize the private sector using carrots and sticks to have them work against their own self-interests and for the interests of central planners in Washington.
RUSH: And that’s exactly what happened in there, bring in these carrot and sticks, these doctors, basically Obama supporters and contributors, a lot of them are not nonprofit doctors, by the way, a lot of these doctors we have learned work for nonprofit health institutions so they’re not even interested in the capitalist cause or aspect of health care. He did the same thing with the drug business, Big Drug. He promised them a whole bunch of escapes, if you will, from his health bill if they would pony up $150 billion to help him advertise his health bill. So he got them with a carrot and stick to work against their own interests overall, and this is what he’s doing with the doctors. Here is how it sounded yesterday, short little sound bite here, six seconds.
OBAMA: I am thrilled to have all of you here today, and you look very spiffy in your coats.
RUSH: Which we passed out to you because you didn’t show up in your doctor coats. I think more than half of these people showed up in regular business attire. Where did they get the white coats? The doctors show up, half of them aren’t dressed appropriately, and where did they get the white coats for the doctors, and white coats that fit? Did they get them from the kitchen staff? Where did they get ’em? Central casting? This is why I was wondering why in the world these people are even doctors. Maybe they are just actors. The New York Post: ‘In a heavy-handed attempt at reviving support for health-care reform, the White House orchestrated a massive photo op to buttress its claim that front-line physicians support Obama. A sea of 150 white-coated doctors, all enthusiastically supportive of the president and representing all 50 states, looked as if they were at a costume party as they posed in the Rose Garden before hearing Obama’s pitch for the Democratic overhaul bills moving through Congress. The physicians, all invited guests, were told to bring their white lab coats to make sure that TV cameras captured the image. But some docs apparently forgot, failing to meet the White House dress code by showing up in business suits or dresses.’ Or maybe they were just too embarrassed to dress that way for a photo op.
‘So the White House rustled up white coats for them –‘ it doesn’t say how or where ‘– and handed them to the suited physicians who had taken seats in the sun-splashed lawn area. Underlying the strictly photo-op nature of the event, The Associated Press noted that Obama broke no new ground in his remarks. The president told the doctors that if they back him, ‘I’m confident we are going to get health reform passed this year.’ The Republican National Committee shot back with a response from Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), who was an orthopedic surgeon before being elected to Congress. ‘Today, the president wants you to believe that the medical community supports his government takeover of health care. Don’t be fooled,’ Price said.’ Tom Price is exactly right.
Remember the Olympics, the China Olympics? The Beijing Olympics? Remember the opening ceremony? Remember how dazzled everybody was by it? There were thousands of people all dressed alike within their groups. And their movements were beautiful. They were just captivating, spellbinding, and everybody was mesmerized by the color, the pageantry, and the synchronization of the movements of those thousands of Chinese citizens, except me. It was I who threw cold water on it the next day. And I said, ‘This is an example of how I’m ahead of the people. I know you saw what you saw, but you didn’t see what I saw.’ What I saw scared the hell out of me. I saw centralized control, planning, I saw the absence of the individual, I saw nothing but a bunch of brainwashed automaton robots that the ChiComs had been no doubt training and orchestrating for months, if not years, to achieve the effect that they achieved. Central planners used visual images to dazzle, but they serve as a metaphor for control, and that’s the key to understanding Obamacare, it’s about control and so we move forward to the doctors.
Now, the doctors goofed up. They didn’t go along with the plan. Of course, the White House probably didn’t have months and months of training time with them like the ChiComs had with their automaton robot citizens in Beijing for the Olympic opening ceremony. You see, Obama is a collectivist, folks, and in order for him to succeed, he must seize liberty, he must mandate our behavior, and if you don’t comply the state and the statists fine and perhaps jail you if you don’t march exactly the way you were told. The sameness of that opening ceremony is what bothered me, and everybody else was dazzled by it. It’s hard not to, I understand, folks, most of you falling for it , that was the purpose. But it was just scary to me. And then we had this costume party at the White House yesterday. So Obama reduced the day. It was Halloween about a month early. People, visitors to the White House, given costumes all to be made up to look like doctors. The only thing that surprised me is they didn’t hand out stethoscopes and tongue depressors and maybe bring in an oxygen tent, perhaps have a portable MRI in there. These were, the doctors yesterday, our equivalent of the ChiCom children playing dress-up in an attempt to take over one-sixth of the economy. It’s all fake with the Obama crowd. Nothing is real. It is all a lie.
