‘Obama Witch Doctor’ Display Creates Controversy In NJ Town
Opponents of Obamacare (also known as the Affordable Care Act) have used a racist image of President Obama dressed as a witch doctor for some time, but the distasteful imagery has mainly cropped up at Tea Party rallies and the like — until a New Jersey store owner who claims to cater to the one percent put the tacky image in his store window.
The Obama witch doctor display is proudly showcased in a window at Skuby & Co. Lifestyle Clothing in Spring Lake, and, while owner Bill Skuby claims patrons in the top one percent of earners, the store’s tasteless display and garish garments seem to indicate otherwise.
In Skuby’s window is what appears to be a tombstone with a skeleton attached and inscribed “I told you I was sick.” Beneath the legend is a widely-circulated image of Barack Obama’s face superimposed on that of what appears to be an African tribesman, and “Obamacare” is spelled out, of course, with a sickle in place of the “c.”
Locals say they worry the racist Obama witch doctor display is inappropriate for children to see, but Skuby feels that the racially charged imagery is perfectly acceptable viewing for kids.
With doctoring is a pretty good comparison for how useful Obamacare will be. In Britain there are daily horror reports about the failures of socialized medicine. If you want your doctor not to give a sh*t about you, socialized medicine is the way to go.
Under Obamacare lots of poor people will be lucky to find a doctor who will see them at all. Even under current rules many doctors avoid Medicaid patients because what the government pays is too low.
